traveler reviews for this cardiff by the sea house rental

Wonderful Beach House!

Review submitted: August 4, 2014   Date of arrival: July 19, 2014

This was our second summer vacation in this wonderful home! Our son was so excited we got this house again. He and his best friend had a great time tooling around town, surfing and enjoying all that Cardiff by the Sea offers. The home is perfect for a family vacation – it offers plenty of space to hang together but also ample room to get away when you want quiet time. We love the fact that it has 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. The kitchen is huge and fully stocked and the 2 decks are awesome -- the top one being the perfect place to end the day with a drink while cooking dinner on the barbecue and watching the sun set. Everything is walkable – grocery store, beach, park, restaurants, etc. Don’t hesitate to book this place. The owners are super responsive and they ensure your stay is special. Mahalo Don and Charlotte!

Highly recommend

Review submitted: July 3, 2014   Date of arrival: June 21, 2014

We stayed in the Cardiff house at the end of June. We knew nothing about this area of the country but a friend recommended Cardiff. We loved the house, the breezes from the ocean were fabulous! The house is situated close enough to town to walk in to get coffee, groceries, etc, but we really preferred to drive to the beach. And with the parking pass this was not an issue.
The house is exactly like the pictures, and was fresh and clean when we arrived, with plenty of towels and the kitchen was well stocked with cooking supplies.
While in Cardiff, we spent time on the beach (the kids used the boogie boards and body surfed the waves), went to the San Diego Zoo, took a Segway tour of the gaslamp and harbor areas of San Diego and went to Knott's Berry Farm. We highly recommend the Segway tour through a company called We Love Tourists. It was fabulous. The drives to the zoo, downtown San Diego and up to Knott's Berry Farm were not bad. Just a note, if you find reduced price tickets online (we did for Knott's Berry) you can print them at the library in Cardiff. They were very helpful there.
The owners of this VRBO are extremely helpful and work hard to make sure your stay is the best it can be. There is a drawer full of information on places to go and things to see, some with discounts attached. Communication with Don and Charlotte is exemplary and when we were looking into this place, my emails were returned quickly and my questions answered thoroughly. The night we arrived we talked to Don as he wanted to make sure everything was to our expectations.
We would definitely stay in this VRBO again if we return to the area. I highly recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in the area.

Perfect location, fully stocked, great owners!!!

Review submitted: April 11, 2014   Date of arrival: March 29, 2014

We stayed at the Cardiff Beach House for the second time for spring break with our 3 kids, ages 2, 5, and 7. We had an excellent vacation and think this rental is a gem. As the other reviews have commented, the place is completely stocked with lots of towels and linens, kitchen supplies (dishes and basics, like spices), beach gear, a beach parking pass, etc. We never had to purchase toilet paper, paper towels, soaps, etc. because they had put out enough to last us the week, which is quite uncommon in a rental.

The location is absolutely perfect - it's about a block from the park, which is very handy if you have kids, and just another block to lots of shops and restaurants. We often walked over to get some fresh coffee (not required because the house has a maker, but we like to treat ourselves on vacation) and enjoyed it while the kids played at the park. I went running several times along the beach, which is only a short walk away. I loved not having to drive over to the center of town. If you are going to bring a lot of gear to the beach to hang out, then I recommend driving from any rental, and then the beach parking pass is handy.

All of us loved watching the sunset from the roof deck, sitting on the porch to read, and my 2 year old was very safe as we could contain her within a desired area with a child gate provided in the house. The pack n play was also nice so we didn't have to bring ours.

The decorations are very tasteful and nice quality so it feels like you are in someone's home rather than a place that has some cheap things because it's a rental. They replaced the living room furniture with some new couches in time for our second visit, and the couches were very comfortable.

Don is a great host and quickly replied to all of our questions. I even accidentally left my jewelry there, and he coordinated with the next guests to mail it all back to me, thankfully.

We would love to come to Cardiff for a third time and stay here again!
