Cardiff by the Sea House Rental Photos and Description

Custom, gourmet kitchen/4 bedrooms/3+baths. Ideal for Del Mar Racetrack Folks!

Are you looking for a luxurious custom home with spectacular – panoramic ocean views?

Would you like to sit at your very own kitchen table…living room… or balcony and watch:

•Amazing sunsets each evening?

•Dolphins and surfers frolicking in the surf?

•A peak of Catalina Island off in the horizon?

•Whales “spouting” off in the distance? Wow.

Would you and your family like to stay really, really, really close to the beach?

Yes- just a quick 7-minute walk- and you are there!

•500’ and 7 minute walk to Swami’s Beach

•Cardiff

•Pipes

•Moonlight Beach

Would you and your family like to vacation at an exquisitely decorated, new custom home that accommodates up to 9 people and is equipped with:

•4 bedrooms and 3 ½ baths --including 2 masters with en-suites and walk in closets?

•A gourmet kitchen- with granite counter tops and top of the line appliances?

•Total privacy behind a gated entry?

•A fabulous media system with CD, DVD, great sound system, wireless Internet, large flat screen TVs in each room, Cox Cable with HBO and Showtime, all controlled by easy to use remotes?

•Laundry room with high-end appliances?

•Outdoor shower for surfers and beach goers?

•Towels, bedding, fully stocked kitchen, and just about any thing you could want! Just bring your own beach towels, food and beverages and you are good to go!

Just a 5-10 minute walk to:

•3 grocery stores

•2 farmers markets

•Restaurants, bars and fine dining?

•Tons of shopping

•Amtrak and the Coaster train

•And, much, much more.....

Yes, the Cardiff beach House is located a mere 5-10 minute walk from both downtown Encinitas and Cardiff where you can find just about anything you could possibly want. Or, if you choose, you can even ride our bike!

Would you like to stay in an ideal location for vacationing throughout San Diego?

Located in north coastal San Diego, the Cardiff Beach House is truly the perfect location. It’s close to Del Mar, the Del Mar Racetrack, Rancho Santa Fe, La Jolla, Torrey Pines, UCSD, the gliderport, high-end golf courses, shopping, La Jolla, dining, Legoland, the zoo. Plus++++

If so, you will love the Cardiff Beach House!

I think when you add it all up, you will know you found the perfect spot for your next vacation. Just give us a call or contact via email/ vrbo as soon to book your vacation!

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:)

Very nice place to stay, even prettier than the pictures! Everyone in our group loved the views. The one problem we had was taken care of within an hour. It was perfect for our needs.

Amazing and beautiful home

  • of 5

This house is simply beautiful. The location is great with the beach near by. The view of the ocean is amazing. My family and I were so happy with this place. We all had a great time. Wished we could have stayed more days, we were all sad to leave this home. It had everything you needed. Cant wait to come back this home again.

Stay here!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this gorgeous home. The amenities, layout and location were hands down the best in San Diego. I had to look at what type of linens were on the bed because I HAVE TO HAVE THEM! The beds were so comfortable! The home was very clean and well taken care of. There isn't enough room to talk about that VIEW, but it was lovely waking up to every morning and I agree w/ all the other reviews... the pictures do not do it justice. I will definitely be booking again with Libby, who was so accommodating and kind. Thank you Libby for the amazing opportunity to share your home with my wonderful friends. WE will be back for sure.

Beautiful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfection! The pictures really don't show you just how beautiful it is. All the rooms are luxurious with the most comfortable bedding in a vacation home. Has all the amenities you would ever need for your stay. The views from the home are amazing! Close to the beach, shopping, night life or perfect for that night where you just want to stay in with friends or family and enjoy an evening together. The outside balcony and patio are perfect for enjoying the most beautiful sunsets or morning coffee. Can't wait until I can get back.

The most beautiful house!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not give this place the credit it deserves! This house is truly beautiful and soooo comfortable. I stayed here for a girls trip and we all had the most amazing time. The house is everything you could hope for... The most comfortable beds, great kitchen for cooking and of course, the best view you've ever seen! My mornings were spent drinking coffee on the patio enjoying the the smell and view of the ocean with my great company. I was able to make some of best memories at this home and I am greatful for every moment spent there. I will recommend this place to anyone and everyone I meet. Perfection! I hope to return very soon!
