About Sue Misner
I'm from San Francisco and my husband was born and raised here in Cardiff, and is a devout surfer. When he brought me here 12 years ago, the city girl in me instantly fell in love with the beach-oriented lifestyle of the Cardiff area. We have 9-year old twins and love to travel. This summer we look forward to sharing our home with vacationers while we're also away experiencing the world.
Sue Misner purchased this House in 2012

This was a perfect home for our family of 8 adults 2 kids. Large dining room table that fit us all. Pool table was great; beach towels, chairs, umbrella supplied for the beach. Very private backyard. I would book again!
Thanks so much for your feedback. We're glad our home worked out well for you and your family and that you enjoyed your stay!
Great experience !
Overall, a very nice experience to have spent a week in Cardiff by the Sea; lovely house in a quiet street amongst very nice neighbors. The house was clean and nicely prepared in all manners for my family’s stay.
From the moment we arrived we noticed The owners tough of everything, they welcomed us with delicious treats from the local market. The kitchen was well equipped for all types of cooking; very functional and well supplied with spices and cooking oils.
Bedrooms and bathrooms were all clean and stocked with towels and bed linens, and basic supplies.
Backyard was an extra pleasant setting for a backyard breakfast or dinner. Also nicely equipped with a gas grill.
We thank the owners for thinking of everything ahead of time. And we would seriously consider doing this again next year.
The Jordan Family
Thanks for the kind and thoughtful comments regarding your stay. We are so happy you and your family enjoyed our home and would love to have you return again next year!
Not enough usual household supplies. Dishwasher tabs, trash bags etc. very nice bedroom furnishings.
The den seating furniture was uncomfortable and for a home that sleeps ten not nearly enough seating in main living space. Room for 4 only.
Thanks for the feedback. Since it's our first time renting out our home, we really appreciate the comments regarding the household goods and will make adjustments accordingly.
Glad we were able to accommodate your short-term request to stay and hope to have you back in the future.
