About Sarah Goncalves
My boys and I have always been drawn to the ocean. San Diego natives, my father was a commercial fisherman in San Diego. We love the outdoors,riding bikes, playing sports and entertaining. We love looking at the ocean and the daily changes it takes on. The view is never the same. We purchased this home as our primary residence, but the boys are grown and away at college so we decided to share our gem with other people who might share our appreciation. We have always dreamed of being walking distance from the beach and seeing the ocean daily.
Sarah Goncalves purchased this house in 2006
Why Sarah Goncalves chose Cardiff by the Sea
We purchased this home as our primary residence. But the big boys are grown and on their own, so we have decided to share it with other families by renting it. Since then our family grew again and we now have a 3 year old. We live in the private loft space above the garage when we are not away traveling. We really appreciate being so close to the beach a 5 minute walk. We can hear and smell the ocean.
What makes this house unique
We like to walk to downtown Cardiff or downtown Encinitas.The beaches are uncrowded and private, just a 5 minute walk. Everything you need is walking distance. We are situated right between two great beaches which are also well known surf spots (Swamis and Pipes)There are great restraunts and cafes. Many great spas, yoga, and shops. But mostly we enjoy just chilling at home, taking in the view.
