About Carole Duffy

San Diego remains one of our favorite places. It's where we see our grandchildren - and where we feel happiest during the year. We think your family will love it as much as we do!

Carole Duffy purchased this townhome in 2000

Why Carole Duffy chose Leucadia

Sea Bluff sits on the edge of the Pacific Ocean overlooking one of the best beaches in Southern California. Our home is a quiet end-unit in a community that values privacy. It's so quiet that you will fall asleep to the sound of waves breaking on the beach.

What makes this townhome unique

Every single inch of our house has been remodelled. We pride ourselves in keeping it feeling brand-new for every guest.

Great vacation house close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Very well appointed house lacking no amenities.

The beach toys were plentiful and a big hit with the grandchildren. The stairs were not a problem for a 23 month and 3.5 year old to go up and down. Also, "noodles" for the pool.

Comfortable house, plenty of cook wear, dishes, etc. and anything else you can think of. We would definitely return here for another visit.

The location was great for exploring San Diego attractions. I would advise a San Diego go-pass, can't beat the deal.

Perfect beachhouse for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderfully relaxing weeks at this perfect beach house in Encinitas. We loved that the community is gated and the grounds were so beautiful. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves, waking up each morning to walk on the beach or swim in the pool or just enjoy breakfast with the kids on the desk...perfect!.

The house was even better than we hoped! Everything we needed (and more) was provided - fully equipped kitchen, sand toys, lovely soft towels, comfortable beds, etc. There was even a great selection of books to borrow. The décor and furniture are lovely. The owners clearly take great care of the house - it was immaculate.

We especially enjoyed the convenient location. We loved exploring Encinitas and Carlsbad (great restaurant!) and visting LEGOLAND, the Zoo, Safari Park, all the different beaches, and lagoons for paddle boarding.

Thanks for all the great recommendations in your guest book. We even got a sitter through the service you recommended (date night!). We can't wait to go back!

Clean, well stocked, great location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for two weeks over Christmas break.

The place was very clean, in good condition, and extremely well stocked (e.g. trash bags, laundry detergent, kids beach toys, etc.). The owner was professional and great to work with.

The location was excellent. Great sunset views just 50 yards away and a pleasant view from the deck. Restaurants are not far at all - just a few minutes down the 101.

The HEATED pools and hot tub were a big plus, especially for our three year old. The pool was pleasantly warm (80 degrees?) and located just a 100 yards or so from the home.

As the name suggests, the property is located on a bluff so you will need to use stairs to access the beach. It's about 100 stairs. So if you have toddlers or infants, you will want to use either Moonlight Beach (6 minutes drive) or Carlsbad beach (2 minute drive) most of the time. We used this beach for sunset views from the deck located about 15 stairs down and went to the other beaches during the day. If you don't have small children and are in reasonable health, the stairs won't be an issue.

I definitely recommend staying here.
