GORGEOUS CARDIFF HOME, PRIVATE, OCEAN VIEWS, + AMAZING BACKYARD

Cardiff by the Sea House Rental Photos and Description

3BR; 3Bath; Ocean Views; Beautifully designed & decorated

Most important for any home rental is the reviews. We are honored and pleased to show that our reviews are ALL 5 star. Most folks have stated the pictures do not the home justice. We think you'll feel the same.

This is a fabulous home perfectly suited if you're looking to escape to the hidden coastal gem of Cardiff by the Sea. With breathtaking OCEAN VIEWS, an amazing outdoor space for entertaining complete with gas BBQ island, outdoor fireplace and seating, and luxurious Jaccuzzi hot tub this home is perfect for you.

FOR GUESTS STAYING 7 NIGHTS OR LONGER: The home has new LG washer & dryers in the garage. The garage has space for 1 car. You will have access to both the garage and the washer/dryer for booking stays of 7 nights or longer.

Before I go further about the home's description, I wanted to address one of the most repeated questions that most out of towners seem to ask -- 'Are you walking distance to the beach?'

Here's what I tell folks from out of the area inquiring about walking to the beach... Simply, 'dont.' And here's why: In addition to Cardiff being somewhat of a charming coastal town, it is on a hill. Hills, are generally easy to walk down, but the homes that are 'walking distance to the beach' are a steep walk back up.

More importantly (and in my opin.) is that there's 3 'danger' issues w/ walking --

1) you have to cross over railroad tracks (along the pacific coast highway) so with pets or children or grandma/grandpa, it might be a bit leery/worrisome.

2) More than that, the Pacific Coast Hwy is a fast paced highway where cars can travel 40-50mph - that too can be troubling for a group made up of little people, furry people and older people.

3) And finally, regardless of where you stay, lugging coolers and blankets and towels and umbrellas, etc is a hassle especially in the warm summer months.

Thus, better to drive and park in a dedicated lot and save the hassle of the above.

All that being said, this home is just 1 mile from beach. It's literally a right turn, a stop sign and 2 stop lights down the hill.

The other nuance to being 'closer' to the beach is the homes are 'stacked' - where there's a) no yard and b) your neighbors home is literally less than 4-6' away from yours. It can feel a bit claustrophobic. The trade off however, is generally white water ocean views. In addition, the homes close to the beach are on streets that are more narrow (no true sidewalk) and thus at night walking can be dangerous as many are very poorly lit, in addition to being on a steep grade. Compare w/ the neighborhood where this home is located, the streets are well lit, have dedicated sidewalks on both sides and are 'flat'.

Back to the description. This home features an authentic Spanish stucco exterior (Santa Barbara finish) and Mediterranean tiled roof and all of the contemporary and modern furnishings inside for you to help you 'get away from it all'. In short, this home is fully loaded.

With magnificent views of the Pacific from the master bedroom, you are less than a mile away from the best beaches San Diego has to offer ... Cardiff Reef, Georges, Swamis and Pipes (to name just a few)...

This home has a full kitchen with all the amenities, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances (refrigerator, stove, microwave, dishwasher) gas cook top, oven and even a stainless steel pot filler. The cupboards are stocked with the highest end dishware (Denby) and stemware (Villaroy & Bach) and feature down-lighting. Additionally all necessary cooking and eating utensils and dishware are provided.

The living room features a 58' Samsung 3DHDTV (4 glasses) with surround sound, Samsung BluRay DVD, AT&T U-verse with complete movie and sport channel packages, Nintendo Wii and couch seating for 4. The Logitech Harmony Touch remote is your all-in-one remote that powers the entire unit. A user guide is available for those unfamiliar with this state of the art remote system.

With recessed lighting and hardwood floors throughout, upgraded bathrooms, classic furniture and collectors pieces, in addition to one of the best backyards for entertaining in the entire area this home is complete from inside out.

While the inside of the home is wonderfully appointed, the backyard is this property's featured attraction according to past guests. As mentioned above, couch and lounge chair seating, dedicated teak outdoor dining table, natural gas fireplace, jacuzzi (maintained professionally on a weekly basis) and a natural gas bbq island make the backyard a truly exception extension of this home. A large modern umbrella provides shade during warm sunny days, and a trellis offers the same above the dining area. Two chaise lounge chairs are shaded by the overhang of the master bedroom deck, but there's plenty of room to move them into direct sunlight.

From the master suite enjoy sunset and ocean views. The master bedroom also has his/her bathroom sinks, double shower heads in a recently remodeled bathroom, bathtub and 32' HD TV with AT&T U-verse and full movie channels. The king size bed is situated so you can wake up with views of the ocean. There is an industrial clothes rack and a chest of drawers for your clothing storage. Finally, enjoy evenings on the private deck off the master with spectacular ocean and sunset views. Recently updated with tumbled travertine tile and a hardwood pub table with pub chairs for two, your evenings will be complete while sipping wine or coffee while taking in the amazing San Diego sunsets.

The 2BR features a queen size bed, 32' flat screen HDTV and wireless cable box and has its own private bathroom with pedestal sink, tiled shower and toilet. There's also ample closet space with shelving and hanging space.

The 3BR doubles as an office with fully remodeled floors, paint and furniture including a replica Charles Eames chair and ottoman. This room has a full size platform bed.

This location is a dream, just east of the freeway (I-5) you are within 3 minutes (less than 1 mile drive) to local parks and beaches and some of the best north county coastal shopping, restaurants, lounges, and surfing the area has to offer. Also world class golf awaits at the infamous Torrey Pines resort. For most families world famous Zoo, Wild Animal Park, Legoland and Seaworld are all a short drive away. In fact, Disneyland too is just an hour away! If it's an adult getaway then venture to Temecula wine country and check out the best wine region in southern California. Indian casinos are abound in San Diego. For the outdoor types hike Torrey Pines state park, or run/bike the coastline, bird watch at the local lagoons, or get ripped at one of the many crossfit, pilates, or yoga studios.

Take a two minute drive to the famous Cardiff Reef surf spot and gorgeous crystal blue beaches. Relax after a day at the beach in the outdoor spa that seats up to 8 people or warm yourselves next to the outdoor (natural gas) fireplace. At night enjoy wonderful restaurants and night life in Cardiff or nearby Encinitas. Great markets and small beach cafes in nearby town to enjoy.

The home has password protected high speed WiFi.

The home has touch heating system.

The home has an alarm system.

All linens and towels provided. Back ups provided as well.

About Ryan Danz

This home's owner has lived in the San Diego area for more than 13 years, having attended graduate school in downtown SD. Having moved to Cardiff in 2003 where he first rented a beach bungalow and knew then he'd never leave. In his personal time he enjoys surfing local beaches and getting as much exercise outdoors as possible. He also was a recent finalist on the Emmy award winning show The Amazing Race (season 21) and continues world adventures in his free time.

Ryan Danz purchased this house in 2005

Why Ryan Danz chose Cardiff by the Sea

As you will find the beach enclave of Cardiff is unlike most other towns you will come across. A mix of high end homes with that laid back beach feel is the best way to describe the ambiance. The home itself has been totally remodeled over the past few years and its signature trait is the double french doors that open from the house to the exquisite backyard.

Our family stayed here for a week, we held our nephews wedding rehearsal dinner there and what a wonderful time we all had. The house is so comfortable and close to everything. Very quiet neighborhood. Loved our time there, and we hope we can return someday.

Owner's Response: Emily - super cool review and much appreciated, of course. Also, as I mentioned previously, it's such a testament to this 'sharing-economy' when guests like you leave the home actually nicer/cleaner than it was left for you ... I would love for you to one day return to our property as you are the ideal guest.

Thank you again.

Great home in San Diego County

  • 4 of 5
Ryan, our host could not have been more attentive, replied almost immediately, and answered all our questions. The house looks exactly like the pictures, it is tastefully decorated and well appointed, very cozy and homey. The views from the up-stairs bedroom are wonderful (partial ocean view), you can sit on the balcony having a cocktail watching the sunset. We also loved the main bathroom. Kitchen is great and large and had everything we were looking for. Great entertainment system, although it would not play our 3D Blue Rays we brought with us. Outdoor garden and patio space is wonderful, we spent a lot of our time outside, great for visiting and socializing and our dogs loved the large fenced in yard. Ryan had decorated the backyard with lights, and even had instructions as to how to turn them on at night, but we could not find any extension cords, so were unable to turn them on, although I am sure it would have been beautiful! Jacuzzi is well kept, although getting older. The neighborhood is nice, very pet friendly, we walked our dogs in the neighborhood every day, and had no issues. Close to most everything, but still about 20 + miles to San Diego etc. Great place to stay with kids, pets friends and family.

We couldn't have asked for a more comfortable place to stay. We felt right at home the minute we entered the property. Every comfort of home was made available and even more. From the living room, bedrooms, back yard, kitchen - all wonderfully equipped - you could not have asked for more.
A lovely place to spend time with family/friends. I'd certainly recommend it to my family and friends and hope to have an opportunity to visit Cardiff again in the near future. The homeowner is a wonderful, caring person that will make your experience/stay even that much nicer. Always eager to offer his assistance with any questions you might have. This was our first time renting a home during a short trip and will certainly advise those looking to rent that this is one property you'll want to try. An experience we'll always remember with fond memories. Thank you for your hospitality.
