Cardiff(Spectacular) by the Sea

  • 5 of 5
This rental is outstanding. A very roomy and comfortable environment with all the amenities that are needed. Within walking distance of the superb Cardiff Seaside Market, beach, quaint eateries, post office and shops, this property is all you can ask for as you relax and watch sunsets from the balcony. The nearby Italian restaurants are superb and the beach community of Encinitas with their shops and restaurants give reason to browse the sidewalks for the rich history of the community. The owners are truly professional and know what guests need. Highly recommended for relaxation and enjoyment.

best of everything

  • 5 of 5
Come by plane, train, boat, or car but once you get there throw away the keys. Everything important you can get to on foot.
Shop for your dinner each day at the incredible "Seaside Market". Prepare your meal in the well equipped gourmet kitchen.. But when the sun starts to set head out to the magical deck. (must planed)
Grab a glass to toast the setting sun (watch for the green flash). Taste the sweet wine on each others lips as the sun sinks into the Pacific Ocean.
Go ahead, share a deck chair while you re-examine the bag of shells you collected on your walk on the beach. The sky's first stars are starting to shine, the view is mesmerizing, and you are ageless, living in Cardiff by the Sea time. (perhaps dinner can wait)
Go make your own memories.

Return to Cardiff

  • 5 of 5
We returned to Cardiff after having moved away ten years ago and stayed in the most delightful home! We were within walking distance of the beach, shops, a gourmet market, and several wonderful restaurants. There's no need for a car unless one wants to drive a mile and a half to even more shops and restaurants in downtown Encinitas.

The house is gorgeous! It's beautifully furnished with interesting artwork covering the walls, decks and patios with comfortable furniture, a state of the art kitchen, and incredible views of the Pacific from the bedrooms, living and dining areas. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms appear to be brand new. This home truly has everything.

We highly recommend this beautiful home to any visitors to north San Diego County and look forward to our next visit

Perfect Ocean House

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in this spectacular home recently and can completely recommend this beautiful property to everybody in the travel community. It has a truly panoramic and magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean and is less than a 10 minute walk to beautiful sandy beaches. The nearby beach community of Cardiff-by-the-Sea is the quintessential southern California beach town.

The house is beautiful and comfortable inside. The upstairs bathroom has been recently remodeled and is like something out of "Home Beautiful"...the kitchen, as well, is large, modern and has everything you could possibly need.

The owners, both retired educators, made the entire process simple and pleasant. We were greeted upon arrival and they were hugely helpful, helping us with our bags and spending as much time as necessary showing us where everything was and how everything worked. A perfect vacation..
