***NEW - Completed Feb. 2013 - Pedestrian underpass to the beach at the end of our block at Santa Fe to Swamis. Walk to beach in 5 minutes without crossing over the train tracks.

The City of Solana Beach is just 3 miles South of Cardiff, filled with more great restaurants, the Cedros Design District, exciting nightlife, and a convenient Amtrak train station.

This classic and tastefully decorated home features a dramatic 16 ft wall of windows overlooking the ocean. The spacious gourmet kitchen has beautiful granite and lots of counter space. An open floor plan allows the main living areas to blend together comfortably, providing expansive ocean views from the many windows.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our guest book 9/7/14

We sincerely thank you for having us at your beautiful home. It was the perfect "home away from home" We will never forget the memories we made celebrating my mother-in-laws birthday.

Quiet & Fun home

Quiet & Fun home

We had a terrific time here with six adults and three kids under four years of age. The house was easily child-proofed enough for all of us to enjoy being inside. The yard was perfect for the adults and kids. Lots of games and videos for all. Two beaches were either a walk or short drive away, and the shops and restaurants were also close. The owner was especially friendly and attention to any needs while giving us all the privacy we needed. Happy we came to SD but especially to this house.

Another Wonderful Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We returned again to this beautiful home. The layout is fantastic for multi-generational families. The back yard was an awesome place for the kids to keep going while the parents and grandparents relaxed. It is so nice to be able to take a leisurely stroll to the beach. The ocean views are better than the pictures depict. The Cardiff area is so quaint and laid back. More new restaurants and shops appear each time we come visit.The hospitality of the owners is always refreshing. Thank you! We will most definitely come back again. We have to plan more in advance next time so we can be sure to get our preferred dates.

Great week

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for spring break, and it was our home base while we took our daughter to look at colleges. The house is beautiful with a great view. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck and soaking up the afternoon sun. The location is good, and it is a short walk to great yoga classes, coffee shops, Whole Foods, the beach, etc. Neighborhood is quiet.

This is the second time that our family has returned to this beautiful home. We stayed last summer (2013) and had such a great time that we couldn't wait to return and planned a winter getaway.
This place is amazing. Our family has so many wonderful memories. The open layout is fantastic for us to hang out and enjoy meals. The views are better than any of the pictures show. We loved the winter sunsets even better than the summer. We were able to see whale spouts almost daily. The kitchen is so spacious and well stocked. The bedrooms are comfortable with nice linens and towels. The backyard is fantastic for the adults and children. Impossible to find a backyard of this size and still get the ocean views. The owner is always available in case we need anything or can't figure something out. Another perfect family vacation.

Great spot for family get-together

  • 5 of 5
This home in Cardiff worked out perfectly for our 4-family get-together. The outdoor space was huge and great for kids to play and adults to enjoy the ocean views. The house was clean and well-stocked when we arrived. The walk to reach the beach from the house was very do-able, but we ended up driving to transport ourselves and our stuff for our beach day. Would recommend this place to others!

We spent my sisters 30th birthday week at Sarah's amazing house! It was a perfect place to stay. We where close to the beach (walking distance) where we would walk every day. Great places to eat close to home. The little market seaside market was close and the kitchen was great to cook all together as a family. I would recommend this rental to anyone and truly look forward to coming back again soon. Thanks again !!
