Therefore it is our wish that this beloved home will keep them forever in our hearts. We hope you will love and enjoy it just as we do and experience the peace and beauty of a place we believe is as close as can be to heaven on earth. Enjoy!

Our guests have made comments in our Memory Book which include: 'Best vacation ever' 'Can hardly wait til we return' 'Your home is magnificent' 'We made wonderful memories' 'Perfect in every way' We would be pleased and honored should you, too, choose to make an entry in our book when you visit.

About June Dolan

We are retired Registered Nurses who spent much of our nursing careers in management/supervision, Intensive Care and detention health. We originally purchased beach property for our own enjoyment but realized we were not always able to be in that location so we came up with the idea that we wanted others to be able to enjoy it as well and at prices they could afford!

*Scottie O'Brien & his mom, Kelly, & brother,Shane stayed at our home on several occasions when he was receiving clinical trials in San Diego for a rare mitochondrial disease with no know cure or treatment. They brought a spirit of love, peace and giving to our Cardiff by the Sea home that will always remain there. For each rental we receive, we will donate $25 to Scottie on the web site (You might also like to read Scottie's story on this site---he is a loving, caring young man with an amazing attitude.)

June Dolan purchased this house in 2006

Why June Dolan chose San Diego County

After my parents passed---after long and devastating illnesses, I did not want to waste the small inheritance that was left from all their labors and thus invested my portion as a down payment on a small ocean view condo in a beautiful complex which set right on the sand. We so loved the awesome feeling of peace that was so prevalent at the beach that we decided others had to experience it as well. So we decided to sell it (to friends---and we now manage it for them) and purchase a larger beach home so that others could come to share that little bit of 'heaven on earth' and find joy and happiness in a place we had come to love so much! It was evening, with the sun setting on the ocean when we first walked into the master bedroom of our Cardiff by the Sea home. We were immediately drawn to the unbelievable beauty of the ocean that we could behold right before our eyes---it was love at first sight and we knew this was the home of our dreams!

What makes this house unique

Cardiff is a very lovely up-scale little village with all the quaintness of such but yet with the mesmerizing attraction of the massive Pacific Ocean (in it's many changing moods) right before our eyes. There is such a unique spirit and feeling of peace and happiness in our beach home (and it seems to radiate throughout the town as well) that draws us and many of our guests to return time and time again to rejuveniate and to discover once more all the joy and beauty of the world in which we live.

I love June's beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This is my 2nd time staying at June's beach house in Carfiff By The Sea. It's absolutely perfect not only in location being so close to the beach but also perfect in how beautiful the home is. June has made sure it's fully loaded with appliances, kitchenware, towels, bedding, beach supplies, etc. You won't have a need or a want because it's all there. We enjoyed sitting on the patio and enjoying the amazing weather. June is a phone call away if you need anything and she is extremely attentive and kind. I haven't met anyone like her before. She truly cares about her vacation residents and treats them like family. I, without a doubt, recommend this home for your stay. We stayed 2 weeks last year and one whole month this year and didn't experience one issue whatsoever. Thank you, June, for the memories and the kindness. You blessed my family more than you know.

A wonderful vacation home! June's home is absolutely beautiful and the location is perfect! It's a very short walk to the beach with an amazing view. We had such a wonderful time and we appreciated that she went above and beyond to have everything there you could possibly need. From kitchen utensils and appliances to beach items to laundry detergent and tons of blankets and pillows and towels. It makes traveling so much easier knowing you don't need to bring everything. The house itself is in a gorgeous neighborhood and we loved having a garage to park in. To add icing to the cake, June is an absolute delight to deal with. She is accomodationg and kind and is always available to answer any questions. It's obvious she has put a lot of thought into her rental and she truly cares for her renters. I highly recommend her home for your next vacation especially if you want to be in Cardiff which is a great central location in the county of San Diego. We have already booked again for next year-its that perfect :)

Best vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you could possibly need (and even want) for a vacation near the ocean. We have three older boys and this house was perfect.The owner goes out of her way to make you feel at home. It was clean and had brand new high end appliances. I was a little worried because it was such a great price that the house would be lacking. I couldn't have been more incorrect. They could charge much more for this rental. Trying to plan when we can come back, hoping it's soon.

Awesome Home Close to Everything!!!

  • 5 of 5

My parents, spouse, two young children and I spent 9 nights at this property. It was perfect for us! Everything we could possible need was provided. All we had to do is stock the pantry and fridge and enjoy. The neighborhood was very nice and unbelievably quiet, especially at night. The local specialty grocery store stocks excellent produce and meat and was conveniently close for that first morning of our stay and any other time we needed fruit, meat or other miscellaneous items. Attractions were easy to get to from this location. Thanks June for making our stay at your place a pleasure! Highly recommended.

Enchantment by the sea

  • 5 of 5

I did have a wonderful time however the town home is not very toddler friendly. As much as I loved all the little touches everywhere that made this feel so much like home I did not like having to reprimand my 2 and a half year old for getting into things he could potentially break (LOTS of knick knacks & brickabrack here and there). The owner went out of her way to help me make sure that this would not be a problem though and for that I appreciate it. I would absolutely refer this to a friend or relative. I spent my entire time enjoying the ocean.

Car: not necessary

Escape to Cardiff by the sea for a memorable vacation in the quiet of a charming village. Find the peace that comes from the sounds of the ocean and the unending beauty of sunsets over the water. Experience the warmth & hospitality of local folks. Relax while viewing the captivating white caps rolling on to the shore by day and by night. Located north of San Diego, Cardiff is noted for its warm sunny days & cool evenings which prevail throughout the year. Afternoon ocean breezes keep temperatures pleasant along the 2.6 miles of pristine beaches. All this, and more, make Cardiff one of the most sought after vacation spots in the world.

Other Activities: jet skiing, kite flying, horse racing, hot air ballooning, kayaking
