Photos and Description of the Cardiff vacation house rental

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Hi and welcome to our charming beach house in Cardiff by the Sea. Located in the middle of Cardiff's walking district, and super close to the Pacific Ocean. We are centrally located in San Diego. Our home is 25 minutes from Downtown San Diego, The Zoo, Sea World and the San Diego Airport. Legoland and Palomar Airport are 15 minutes away.

Our home has easy direct access to world class surfing and beaches, the Seaside Market, Starbucks, VG Donuts, shopping, and great restaurants and bars.

Restaurant Row on the Pacific Coast highway is within minutes from our house.

Enjoy also the nightlife of our area and nearby downtown Encinitas.

Our Beach House is artsy and colorful. We have three bedrooms and two baths, and sleep 5-6. We have a front and back deck that look onto the Cardiff Estuary (which has a field station and open walkways). Our front yard is a gem.

We are extremely close to the beach, and are at the south end of Cardiff's flat walking district. We are also close to many restaurants, bars, gym, yoga, Spa, new Library, cleaners, and Starbucks. Four of the top surfing beaches are 5 minute away in both directions. Legoland is 15 minutes from our home. The San Diego Zoo and Sea World and the Downtown Gas Lamp District are about 25 minutes from us. One of the Beach gems of our area, Moonlight Beach, is a 10 minute drive. Moonlight has a brand new kids playing area, Sand Beach courts for volleyball and a new very cool concession stand. Plus to the right is another great surf spot. Glenn park is 0.2 miles from our home.

The Del Mar Race track is 4.7 miles....a 10 minute drive along a beautiful coast.

Valley View Casino is 50 minutes away. Fun place.

This beach house is in a quiet neighborhood in walking distances to many amenities. The three minute walk to the top of the bluff has a 180 degree ocean view. Unobstructed...beautiful. Sunset with a glass of wine is a must.
