Walk to everything in Cardiff! 15 Restaurants, bars, coffee, Seaside Market/deli, the beach and lagoon hiking trails! We've got all the beach gear you need, plus SURFBOARDS & BIKES available upon request. Cozy Balinese style 1 bedroom, full bath apartment with French doors that open to ocean breezes and a palapa table in the private garden with hammock. Guests tell us we've thought of every detail. Indoor kitchenette, outdoor gas grill & basic "glamping" kitchen.

The space
Relax in the hammock in the peaceful vibe of our very private Balinese style retreat. The landscaped garden has rare 35 year-old succulents and a palapa that's perfect for morning coffee and afternoon sun. The apartment is cozy and well appointed, with a very comfy queen bed, quality linens and pillows, an antique desk and dinette table for two. Custom finishes and original art create a warm and inviting feel. The full bathroom has a bathtub/shower and beautiful, hand carved wooden vanity. Guests really appreciate our "Local Favorites" information binder. We live at the top of the hill, so if you plan to schlep longboards to the beach, you'll want a car. If you like to walk, it's just 7 blocks down the hill to Cardiff town and beach, with ocean views the whole way!

CLEANING MEASURES Taken for COVID Safety: Our apartment is thoroughly cleaned, disinfected, and aired out after each stay. Your entrance and outdoor patio area are all yours, no one else touches them during your stay. We block at least one night (28 hours) in between each stay for proper cleaning & disinfection. I clean the apartment myself, and I am meticulous. This apartment is completely separate, with a separate entrance, but it is attached to our home.

Where you’ll be

Encinitas, California, United States

Cardiff is a fun, friendly, residential surf town on a hill by the ocean. You can walk to everything in Cardiff: gourmet coffee, 15 restaurants, the Lost Abbey Microbrew tasting room, bars and Seaside Market (a gourmet market & deli with everything!). Cardiff State Beach has a wide sandy beach located across the Coast Highway from "Restaurant Row," where you can dine-in or take-out. The beaches are gorgeous and there's awesome surf for pros and beginners, alike. See photo captions in our online guidebook for our very favorite places. Plus, our guests really appreciate the "local favorite" information binder in our apartment.
