Relaxing Vacation in Cardiff

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five adults found the Cardiff home to be very clean, comfortable, well-maintained and containing all of the necessary supplies needed for an enjoyable and relaxing stay. The photos do not completely show the charm of this lovely cottage and surrounding outside area. While the weather was somewhat warm during our stay, we the many ceiling fans and open windows adequately kept the home cool. We appreciated the quiet neighborhood and the driveway parking. All communications with Noni were prompt and very helpful. We would love to come back to the Cardiff home the next time we are in the area. Thank you for providing us the opportunity to enjoy this lovely home.

Beautiful Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to thank you again for sharing your home with us. The neighborhood is very nice and the house was wonderful. You really did provide us with everything but our clothes and food. This little get away gave our family and dear friends the opportunity to catch up with each other and enjoy a little time away. I would definitely recommend your home to my family and friends. I hope that we might be able to plan another vacation in the near future.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just what my husband and another couple needed for a relaxing weekend before a large company meeting. There was plenty of room for another couple, easy. We didn't eat many meals at the house but the kitchen seemed to be stocked well. Great ocean view from the living room and at night, we could hear the ocean from our room. Everything was clean, tidy and eclectic. Being able to park in the driveway and not on the street was a huge plus. We would definitely stay again if we are in the area.

Had a great time at the Del Mar beach house over the weekend. The location was amazing, the house was everything the description told and more! We came with a group of 8 adults and a lot of room.

Charming, Wonderful Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

I agree with the review that said something like this- "Pottery Barn meets French Country". In my dreams I live here!! Charming, charming, charming! We were 4 adults and 2 teens and never did we get in each others way. Comfortable furniture, comfortable beds, great linens and towels, plenty of books and games etc. Everything is provided- just bring your clothes, toothbrush and food! Awesome kitchen and eating spaces- we had a belated Christmas dinner and fed 12 of us and baby with plenty of room! Great Ocean views and ocean breezes. Great outdoor spaces- large table in yard with seating for 6+, fantastic grill, quiet very private deck and yard with chaises to lounge/sunbathe on.(the teens loved this as they wanted to go home with a december vacation tan! :D ) They also walked to town, walked to the beach, went surfing for the first time, rented wave riders etc- they are asking "when can we go back?" Walking distance to town and beach! This place also has all the amenities you can imagine, including a 'frother' for our am lattes. Loved it so much I bought one when we got home! Owner is very gracious and available for any question or issue. Hope to have more stays here when we come to CA to enjoy family and Grandbaby! (sorry I am so late with this Noni- got busy and kept putting it off) 💗

Our great Uncle built it. Our grandfather retired here in 1976 and we spent Holidays here every year. Our mother and uncle lived here. We hope to keep it in the family forever. It's a magical place to be.
