BEAUTIFUL UPSCALE CARDIFF HOME, 3BEDROM, 3BATH, OCEAN BREEZES, SPA

Cardiff by the Sea House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Outdoor Living Area, Spacious Great Room

Welcome to beautiful Cardiff by the Sea and to our lovely home, located just one mile from the beach. Enjoy the new outdoor patio living room on comfortable couches, relaxing to the sound of the water fountain and cozying up to the glass Fire Pit (gas). After a long day of sightseeing, soak in the In-Ground Spa and savor summer time drinks and grilled meals with the Stainless Steel Barbeque Station complete with Granite Counter Top. The garden is private and lush with mature landscaping.

Our 3,000 sq. ft. home has three carefully appointed bedrooms and three recently remodeled bathrooms. The Master Suite is sunny and roomy with a Sleep Number California King bed. A glass door opens onto the outdoor living area. The marble en-suite bathroom is bright with double skylights and has a double vanity with marble sculpted sinks. The shower has dual showerheads and an over sized Jacuzzi tub is perfect for long soaks. The floors have radiant heat.

The second bedroom has a hotel feel. The Queen Size mahogany bed has an organic cotton duvet and matching shams. The large dresser completes the room. The third bedroom has a Queen Size bed with a bright, fun look. These two bedrooms share an adjacent bathroom that has a ceramic tile floor, marble counters and a white porcelain bowl sink. The third bathroom has a pebble floor, onyx vanity and a tiger eye bowl sink. The shower is beautifully tiled with a recycled glass inset that matches the vanity.

The Newly Remodeled Kitchen boasts unique Granite Countertops with Stainless Steel appliances, including a Convection Oven, Gas Range and breakfast bar for morning coffee. Gather at the table in the breakfast room which is bright and airy, situated under three skylights. A gray scraped wood floor runs throughout the kitchen, hallways and part of the family room.

The kitchen and breakfast room open up to a large open concept family room. The family room has a 63” Plasma Flat Screen with surround sound, cable TV with premium channels (Apple TV movies are available as well). WiFi runs throughout the home. The large couches with chaise lounge comfortably seat big groups. Facing west, natural light pours into this room, while plantation shutters keep the light out when desired. A wood burning fireplace with granite surround completes the cozy feel of the room.

The romantic Asian-inspired dining room has a beautiful wood table that comfortably seats 8. The chandelier made in Morano Italy provides soft light. There is also a fireplace (gas) and the sliding glass door opens onto the patio living room.

Because of the ocean breezes, air conditioning is not necessary.

Our home sits in a quiet cul-de-sac with neighbors that look out for each other. Down the hill is a neighborhood gourmet market, a Starbucks coffee house and beach front restaurant row. Cardiff beaches provide the best surfing and paddle boarding. Cardiff is a close knit, laid back, eco-minded surfing community. This is where world famous surfer Rob Machado lives.

Old downtown Encinitas is a five-minute drive which is quaint and has a variety of restaurants, unusual shops and an old movie theater from the 1930s. To the south is the famous Del Mar Race Track, and more nearby beautiful shops and restaurants. Just a bit farther is the famous and ritzy community of La Jolla. The City of San Diego with its historic Gaslamp District is 30 minutes south of our house. Of course, the magical San Diego Zoo and Sea World are also 30 minutes south, and Safari Park is 30 minutes inland. To the east are beautiful mountains and country towns, and ten minutes to the north is Legoland and other beach towns. Los Angeles with Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, and so much more, is 90 minutes to the north. We have brochures which highlight the various activities and sightseeing locations.

We have lived in our home for 35 years and take great pride in its beautiful interior and exterior. The home is immaculate with no clutter.

Not what was advertised

  • 2 of 5
My friends and I have used VRBO to book houses from Sonoma to Paris and have been blown away at the quality of the homes. This place was by far the most disappointing of all. As we were walking through the home when we arrived, we felt like the owners had just left...and left all of their belongings there. There was laundry hanging by the washer/dryer, food in the refrigerator and rotting fruit in a bowl on the counter. The pantry was FULL, to the point where we couldn't put things away that we had bought to use. All of the dishtowels were stained or dirty. We were told not to use any of the glassware in the china cabinet so we drank wine out of juice glasses. When we went to our rooms to settle in, we were greeted by sticky notes that told us we could use 1-2 drawers only. The rest were full of the owners belongings. The master suite had cobwebs in the corners and dust covering the lamps...the duvet cover was dirty and the bed was old enough to have peaks and valleys where the owners must sleep. It was unusually hot on our first day so we tried to turn on the AC...only to find out there was no AC in the house. While it's very unusual to need it in that area, we should have been aware that the house didn't have it.
The house itself was beautiful and has a lot of potential as a vacation home, but it felt like we were waiting for the owners to come back at any minute, and never felt like we could relax and enjoy our stay. It was only surface clean, you could tell it desperately needed a deep cleaning. If they would like to rent the home out to others, I'd recommend putting more effort into removing personal belongings. We clearly paid too much for what we received and left feeling very dissatisfied.

Owner's Response: I am grateful for this review, since we are very new to VRBO and have much to learn and to improve. We are glad that the guest thought our home was beautiful and now we know that it can be even better.
Everything issue has been remedied from brand new bedding, kitchen towels and lamp shades to new wine glasses and a comfy mattress pad. The house is sparkling clean with every room deep cleaned.
For our next guests, be reassured that there will be ample space to place your belongings, food, etc.
Air conditioning is not necessary in homes near the coast. There are maybe five days a year or less that it would be nice. Unfortunately, the guest was staying on one of those days. There is usually a nice cross breeze that blows through the house.
I never even thought to state that there is no air conditioner, but, I
will make a note of that and include it in the add.
With all of the above improvements, we are looking forward to housing our next guests. We know that you will find comfort and relaxation in our updated and improved beautiful home.
