Open to both short term and long term rentals. Extra discounts apply to longer term rentals.
Note: Kitchen, living and dining area is on the 2nd floor to maximize views. There is a flight of stairs (in 2 sections) that total 18 stairs. My 81 year old disabled mother was able to use the stairs- but might be an issue for others.
Likewise, the house is not fully baby proofed. We would, however, consider adding a baby gate and protectors for electric sockets if requested.
Although the beach is only 500' as the bird flies, one has to walk ~ 6 blocks to get to Swami's beach access point. There are many beaches in the area- some of which offer easier access for elderly and those that might have a difficult time with stairs and hills. Moonlight Beach has the easiest access.
Allergies? Occasionally our cat joins us when we are staying here. THe house is very clean- and have not had any problems- but just want potential renters to know ahead of time.
Questions? Just give me a call:)

5 based on 27 traveler reviews
Our party consisted of 4 adults and 2 kids, ages 8 and 2, and this was the perfect property for us. Owner Libby was kind and welcoming and great to work with. In addition to the welcome note and bottle of wine, she even had a pack-n-play waiting for us upon arrival. The house was immaculate and in a great location within walking distance of the ocean, shops and restaurants. We would definitely rent again!
This property was beautiful and luxurious, with more than ample living and sleeping accommodations for the three couples in our travel group. The sunsets from the balcony were the best I have ever seen. The online description of the property was very accurate and the customer service was way above expectations. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this beautiful house in Cardiff to everyone.
Beautiful Ocean View Home!
Very enjoyable place to stay. Great location, great ocean view, and quiet neighbors!
Perfect beach accommodations
This is an extremely comfortable and elegant home. The 3 sleeping/bath areas provided our 2 children, their spouses and children, plus my husband and me with privacy and quiet spots for naps and sleeping in. The kitchen is well-stocked for cooking needs and there are several options for groceries nearby, The binder provided by the owner has thorough information on restaurants as well as instructions about operating the home. Owner is easy to work with, responsive to questions, and helpful. We had a wonderful time and would book this home again.
We visited Legoland, the San Diego Zoo, and Balboa Park from our location in Cardiff. The attractions in San Diego are approximately 40min from Cardiff, depending on traffic. Spent alternate days at various beaches in the area. The beaches are fun and it is worth exploring several of them.
Accommodations were just as described. The house is very nice with lavish furnishings and a fully stocked kitchen wear. Owner was easy to work with and provided a binder with special instructions on all the lock systems etc.
