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.
We purchased this home as our primary residence. But the boys are grown and away at college right now, so we have decided to share it with other families by renting it. We really appreciate being so close to the beach a 5 minute walk. We can hear and smell the ocean.
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. (The city just competed (2012) a pedestrian underpass 3 blocks from our home at Santa Fe so pedestrians can now cross UNDEr the tracks to Swamis beach.
