Of course there are surfers and even whales -in season. Located on a quiet street in the “walking district”, our beach house backs up to beautiful Glen Park.

With the playground for the kids and picnic tables for all, you can play a game of tennis, basketball, or volleyball or relax on the lawn and read a book.

About the Owner

Many years ago we lived in Del Mar before moving to Colorado. We always wanted to return and found this beautiful beach house in Cardiff that was perfect for us part time. We enjoy making it available for our guests like you

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This property was awesome. Close to beach, dining, and other San Diego attractions. We walked on the beach every morning of our 7 day stay with coffee from Starbucks or other local coffee houses. Beach days were made easy with parking pass provided. House itself has everything needed for our two families. We really liked the fact the Cardiff was far enough away from the hustle and bustle of San Diego proper, but close enough for easy access. Definitely would rent here again. Thanks Don!

Calgarians loved the Jackson home

  • 5 of 5

Don & Charlotte have a lovely, very well-equipped home which we were fortunate enough to stay in for 4 weeks in early 2016. We couldn't have asked for a nicer home or a better location. We walked to the beach almost every day, and enjoyed walking to shop at Seaside Market, even learning about and enjoying "Cardiff crack". There are many very nice restaurants within walking distance, and we enjoyed the proximity to San Diego and all the attractions there. There was lots of room for guests, we slept up to seven, including children. The view of the ocean and the sunset from the upper deck was something we watched for every evening that we were home.The home is extremely well stocked with everything anyone could ask for. We highly recommend it!!

Comfortable, lovely, exceptionally well-supplied home in an excellent location with terrific hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Cardiff itself is great for a vacation that suits all ages. The Jackson home is in the center of it all and provides a trouble-free home with a lovely garden, striking sunsets, a park and of course the sea. The Jackson's could not be more helpful and thoughtful down to providing hats, sunscreen, boogie boards, beach towels, and beach pass. The garage provides security for the vehicle and a place to put "stuff" . The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped. Electronic equipment is first rate. There is even a resident Allens Hummingbird. Walk to the store and restaurants, library, post office, beach, park! We have stayed there twice now and hope to go back. We recommend it highly.

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this home for one week in August, 2015. It was situated across the street from a park and a short walk to the beach. There were some shops/restaurants nearby, but it was a quiet area situated about 30 minutes north of San Diego. The home itself had a view of the ocean, was clean and well kept, and is well stocked. It was perfect for our family of four, and had an extra bedroom, so another couple of people could have fit comfortably. I really appreciated the personal phone call from the owner prior to and just after our arrival. He gave us some great ideas of things to see and do while we were there. Another thing I loved was that we were able to use a parking pass at the beach, which was nice so that we didn't have to walk with our two young children and all of the beach gear (which was generously provided by the owners). I can't recommend this place enough!

Every little detail is covered.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this beautiful home for one week in July, 2015. The owners take great care to ensure that every little detail is considered. As the owner of a vacation rental, I sometimes have high expectations when I rent other homes. This was a delightful stay! Don, the owner, provides thorough explanations both prior and during the stay so there is no confusion about either the home procedures or the surrounding area. The two bedrooms on the lower level worked well for our family of four. If you are traveling with two families, the upstairs bedroom will offer another level of privacy. The kitchen is well equipped, along with spices and oils/vinegars, etc. Having three bathrooms is definitely a plus! And, the owners have provided more than enough towels, beach toys, chairs, etc for a large crowd! The location is also nice because the park is just around the corner and Cardiff by the Sea shops/restaurants are within an easy walking distance. We are looking forward to (hopefully) returning again next year.

Can't say enough about this great location.... So relaxing!!!!!!!
