If you are looking for a vacation home where from the comfort of the deck or living area you can enjoy the view of waves breaking, then look no further! No roof tops or power lines will restrict your view here!
Just a short 5 minute walk to sandy uncrowded beaches will make this a great family and/or a romantic time to remember.
Reasonably priced, this vacation home is only a few minutes walk to the beach. My rental comfortably sleeps four people. A cool inside spiral staircase is used to go downstairs and up. In addition, the downstairs can be entered thru an exterior French door. The upstairs can also be accessed by walking up the exterior wooden staircase (shown in photo section) to the ocean view deck and the glass front door. The rental has a very small private back yard.
Each bathroom has a wall that was built with glass block and is quite attractive. The upstairs small living/kitchen area floor is made from imported Brazilian teak wood. The downstairs floor was laid with sharp looking bamboo wood.
If you like to walk to various places then you have come to the right place (driving is also an option!). Small downtown Cardiff by the Sea, just a couple blocks long, is a five minute walk. Much larger, old downtown Encinitas is a 10-15 walk. This walk can be accomplished three separate ways: along the beach, via Pacific coast highway or directly on the street the rental is located.
One parking space in the driveway is allowed for my guests. If guests bring bikes or surfboards, then they can be stored in the secured back yard.
Interaction with guests
Since I live in the main house, I will meet my guests when they arrive. I have lived in the general area for 30 years and know where most places are located. My guests should feel comfortable asking for directions to most anywhere they need to travel to.
Other things to note
Cardiff by the Sea is widely known for its surfing, body surfing, sun bathing, ocean swimming, stand up paddle boarding, bicycle riding, fantastic sunsets and leisurely walks along the sandy beaches. Within San Diego county one can visit Sea World, Lego Land, San Diego Zoo and Safari Park, in addition to watching the San Diego Charger football team play or the San Diego Padre Baseball team perform.
This is a non-smoking property. All smoking is to be done across the street. Thank You!
Also, since the houses are close together, everyone respects each others privacy, which includes being quiet when others are sleeping.
Sorry, I have tried having pets allowed but that just hasn't worked out. No pets allowed.
California is in its 4th consecutive year of a drought. Level 3 alert is being enforced. Therefore, I am encouraging my travelers to still take showers but be mindful of your time in the shower! Parents with teenagers, please monitor the time that their kids spend in the showers!
Speaking of showers, most of our water comes from the Colorado river, which if left alone on the glass shower doors, becomes difficult to remove later on. Please use the squeegees provided in each shower to clean off the water. Many thanks in advance!
The last rule is a must! Have fun during your stay!
Hi and thanks for visiting my site! A little bit about myself. I made Cardiff by the Sea my home in 2002 and feel lucky to live so close to the pacific ocean. Hearing the waves crashing on the beach during the night is something that I wish everyone could experience. Even though I am retired and getting up there (68 this year), I still carry my longboard to the waters edge and go surfing. My career was teaching high school students math and really had fun doing that for 35 years. If you choose to stay at my place and you are an adventurous person, then I might teach you how to surf!
Aloha from Rich!
