Cardiff Property

  • 3 of 5

The property was nice but had a few things that would compel me to look elsewhere in the future. The master bed is too soft for my taste (and back). The pillow top covering didn't help much. The house was clean upon arrival and the numerous doors and windows made keeping the house pretty cool on the few warm days we had, although I would personally never rent a house without a/c again! I must say, however, this would be a great house for families because of the extra room in the garage.

I had my small dog with me and was cautioned by the owner to make sure she doesn't bark and disturb the neighbor's. This is not a problem for me because she's pretty quiet and I rarely left her alone in the house. Ironically, every neighbor has a dog and they ALL barked! In fact, at night, since the property is so close to the street, you could hear cars coming and going, dogs barking, people arguing, etc. all in all, not such a quiet neighborhood. Although I enjoyed the town of Cardiff, the stay was not worth the substantial price I paid.

Fabulous Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a wonderful time at this property. Most were from out of state and were very happy with the proximity to the beach and all of Cardiff by the Sea's "coolness." The house has lots of open space and enough rooms for everyone to feel like there is a spot for them to relax, or get together for a meal, a game or just conversation. Plus, the kids appreciated the wifi and game room! Loved this place and recommend it!

Highly recommend. Great spot in north county!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been comming to Southern Cal beaches for a long time and found it hard to remeber a better trip! The weather in Cardiff was perfect. The house is truly a short walk to the beach. Cardiff State Beach was clean and the water was warm for California. The house was great, lots of windows and open doors, lots of space for adults and kids. The neighborhood is so quiet after 9pm. We stayed 4th of July week and had a great time, no hassle with traffic and no fuss with crowded beaches. Our boys cant waite to go back. I will be booking next year soon!

Relaxing Vacation in Cardiff

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five adults found the Cardiff home to be very clean, comfortable, well-maintained and containing all of the necessary supplies needed for an enjoyable and relaxing stay. The photos do not completely show the charm of this lovely cottage and surrounding outside area. While the weather was somewhat warm during our stay, we the many ceiling fans and open windows adequately kept the home cool. We appreciated the quiet neighborhood and the driveway parking. All communications with Noni were prompt and very helpful. We would love to come back to the Cardiff home the next time we are in the area. Thank you for providing us the opportunity to enjoy this lovely home.

Beautiful Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to thank you again for sharing your home with us. The neighborhood is very nice and the house was wonderful. You really did provide us with everything but our clothes and food. This little get away gave our family and dear friends the opportunity to catch up with each other and enjoy a little time away. I would definitely recommend your home to my family and friends. I hope that we might be able to plan another vacation in the near future.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just what my husband and another couple needed for a relaxing weekend before a large company meeting. There was plenty of room for another couple, easy. We didn't eat many meals at the house but the kitchen seemed to be stocked well. Great ocean view from the living room and at night, we could hear the ocean from our room. Everything was clean, tidy and eclectic. Being able to park in the driveway and not on the street was a huge plus. We would definitely stay again if we are in the area.
