The home provides 3 bedrooms (plus an additional room that has a comfortable pullout sleeper sofa), and 3 complete baths. The large master suite occupies the entire second floor, providing lots of natural light and an open airy feeling. Sleep comfortably in the brand new Aireloom queen mattress and pull down the blackout shades to eliminate light.

A few extras: whole house air conditioning, hardwood floors, full laundry room, and alarm system.

It’s all about location and ours is fantastic! The home is located in the heart of the Composer District, which is walking distance to the beach and downtown Cardiff and Encinitas.

Fantastic Labor Day weekend stay in Cardiff!!

Had an absolutely fantastic stay at this property with some close friends. The home was so turnkey with everything we could have needed for cooking/bbq'ing and we also used the beach chairs and boogie boards that the owner left out for us. The access to the freeway couldn't be easier and also a 2 second drive to the beach. The downtown Cardiff/Encinitas area also has some great bars and restaurants to choose from which we also took advantage of. If you feel like bbq'ing at this property I would run down to the local Cardiff supermarket and buy some of their tri-tip called "Cardiff Crack"...some of the best tri-tip i've ever had and already pre-marinated....a local favorite!!! Looking forward to a future stay at this property. Many thanks to the owners for making it available over Labor Day weekend.”

Nice location outside of San Diego

We really enjoyed our stay in the quiet community of Cardiff by the Sea. The house was very nice, and we especially enjoyed the massage and ping pong tables. We were close enough to San Diego and still able to fit a day trip to LA.”

Beautiful Home!!

Lovely home and very comfortable place to stay for my family of five. The surrounding outdoor grounds are just so beautiful and relaxing, as well. Very clean and well-maintained, we hope to be able to return to this same home on our next visit to the San Diego area!!”

Relaxing week

We enjoyed Cardiff by the Sea and this beautiful home. The house was spacious and had everything that we needed. The large, secluded patio was where we spent most evenings with the BBQ and fire pit. ”

Beautiful house, great location!!

Lovely house with great facilities. A short walk to the ocean, restaurants and food store. The outdoor patio and gardens were highlighted by a fire-pit-so relaxing, day or night. The inside was roomy and very comfortable-with a wonderful sound system in the living/family room. Our group of 6 had a wonderful visit in Cardiff by the Sea. I highly recommend this house.”

Lovely home.

Our 24 year old daughter who works for the Dept of Defense stayed at Cardiff By The Sea while working in San Diego. She said the house was immaculate and well appointed. Drive to restaurants and the beach just a few miles away. We thank Jon and his family for providing our daughter a safe and very comfortable home away from home.”

Beautiful, fun beach home

My family and I loved this house. It is beautiful and the location is great! Only about 1 mile to the beach and a couple blocks from a really great park. If you are looking for a fun week at the beach, and you don't mind a 15 min walk or a 2 minute drive, then this place is perfect. We just drove down to the beach everyday and parked on the street next to the bridge and walked down with all our stuff. Super convenient, and really easy access. Cardiff is a gem, and this house has great indoor and outdoor living space. Would definitely go back again!”
