The space

The finest home in Cardiff - perfectly set up for families and groups of 6-8 people traveling together, with little ones, wanting privacy and exclusivity while enjoying ocean views and a 2 minute drive to beaches, restaurants and shopping.


Most important for any home rental you are considering is the reviews. We are honored and pleased to show that our reviews are ALL 5 star. Most folks have stated the pictures do not do the home justice. We think you'll feel the same. **The home went under a total renovation and remodel in June 2018 lasting approximately one year, so reviews prior to that were for the 'old' home. Nonetheless we believe our 'new' home is far superior, larger, nicer, safer and generally truly luxurious.

With breathtaking OCEAN VIEWS, an amazing outdoor space for entertaining complete with gas BBQ island, outdoor fireplace and seating, this home is perfect for you.

This home features a recently renovated and contemporary layout, both interior and exterior, with exposed ipe and santa barbara finish stucco as well as all the contemporary and modern furnishings inside for you to help you 'get away from it all'. This home is fully loaded all the way down to the in cabinet Miele coffee machine.

With magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean from the master bedroom, you are just a mile (+/-) away from the best beaches San Diego has to offer ... Cardiff Reef, Georges, Swamis and Pipes (to name just a few)...

This home has a full kitchen with all the amenities, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances (Thermador refrigerator, stove, oven, dishwasher) gas cooktop, and even a stainless steel pot filler. The cupboards are stocked with the vacation rental ready dishware, stemware, and glassware. Additionally all necessary cooking and eating utensils and dishware are provided.

The first floor living room features a 55" Samsung Frame Smart TV that doubles as art work when not in use.

With recessed lighting and concrete (micro top) floors on the entry level, and hardwood floors on the second floor, upgraded bathrooms, classic design furniture pieces like the Eames chair and Jacobsen egg chair and collectors pieces, in addition to one of the best backyards for entertaining in the entire area, this home is complete from inside out.

While the inside of the home is wonderfully appointed, the backyard is this property's featured attraction according to past guests. As mentioned above, couches and midcentury modern chair seating, dedicated outdoor dining table with umbrella, natural gas fireplace, and a natural gas bbq island make the backyard a truly exception extension of this home.

In addition the home offers synthetic turf in the backyard and a handful of kid friendly play accessories for climbing and play. A large modern umbrella provides shade during warm sunny days, and a trellis overhang offers the same above for those wanting to relax off the second story master bedroom while checking out the ocean or an amazing Cardiff sunset. Two palm springs midcentury chairs are shaded by the overhang of the master bedroom deck, but there's plenty of room to move them into direct sunlight.

From the second floor master suite enjoy sunset and ocean views. The master bedroom also has his/her bathroom sinks, double shower heads in a recently remodeled bathroom, bathtub and 40" SmartTV HDTV. (A smart tv means all apps are preloaded into the tv/dashboard; so HULU, Netflix, Youtube, Disney, eg - can all be accessed through the tv, youll just need to have an account / login for that app). The california king size bed is situated so you can wake up with views of the ocean. There is a chest of drawers for your clothing storage. The master bedroom closet is unavailable. Finally, enjoy evenings on the private deck off the master with spectacular ocean and sunset views.

There are two kid friendly bedrooms on the second floor, just steps from the master. They share the 'rainbow' bathroom; but are not jack and jill, as you must exit the bedroom in order to enter the bathroom.

The downstairs (first floor) guest bedrooms include one bedroom situated in the back of the home just off the living room, that faces the back of the home/backyard and the other bedroom with a queen bed (currently shown with the beach/surf at on the wall above the bed). This bedroom faces the front of the home/front garden. These guest bedrooms share the white tile bathroom with floating walnut sink/vanity and walk in shower, but are not jack and jill, as you must exit the bedroom in order to enter the bathroom.

This location is a dream, just east of the freeway (I-5) you are within 3 minutes (approx 1.5 mile drive) to local parks and beaches and some of the best north county coastal shopping, restaurants, lounges, and surfing the area has to offer. Also world class golf awaits at the infamous Torrey Pines resort. For most families world famous Zoo, Wild Animal Park, Legoland and Seaworld are all a short drive away. In fact, Disneyland too is just an hour away! If it's an adult getaway then venture to Temecula wine country and check out the best wine region in southern California. Indian casinos are abound in San Diego. For the outdoor types hike Torrey Pines state park, or run/bike the coastline, bird watch at the local lagoons, or get ripped at one of the many crossfit, pilates, or yoga studios.

Take a two minute drive to the famous Cardiff Reef surf spot and gorgeous crystal blue beaches. Relax after a day at the beach in the outdoor spa that seats up to 8 people or warm yourselves next to the outdoor (natural gas) fireplace. At night enjoy wonderful restaurants and nightlife in Cardiff or nearby Encinitas or Solana Beach. Great markets and small beach cafes in nearby town to enjoy.

For any reservations longer than 1 month, we will require an initial booking on Airbnb (14-25 days) and any subsequent stay/extension that results in the total reservation being a month or longer period, to be contracted directly with Property Owner/Manager under California Department of Real Estate guidelines. In such instances a separate lease may also have various fees and minimums for security deposits, utilities, pets, cleaning that are not described on the Airbnb site.

We require that at least 1 adult over the age of 28 required to be renting/staying at property during rental period. We may also require background and credit check for lease purposes (if reservation is over 1 month).

Upon booking, you will be provided with local information and the property manager will be available for in depth discussion regarding the lay of the land and the home.

Please note the crib is not equipped with sleeping blankets / sheets -- please prepare to provide your home due to safety/health and covid precautions.

 Other things to note

The quiet and family orientated neighborhood makes your stay safe. Our home is enclosed with fences for your kids and pets. Our streets are well lit for evening walks. \\

**We are available to you for standard check in times should you require any assistance from 4pm - 8pm … for after these hours we may be available for emergency only and only then via airbnb message app.  We apologize if this causes any issues, but please consider this ahead of booking. Likewise, please advise us before traveling, on your estimated time of arrival so we can accommodate if possible.

A note about our cleaning and cleaning fees: When you book this property you are paying for a full cleaning following your departure. That also means you should expect a cleaned and prepared home prior to your arrival. Your cleaning fee however also covers other services, (depending on the street and city in which the home is located) but may include other items like outdoor areas, pools and/or hot tubs, laundry, wiping down of appliances and kitchen drawers and cabinets, vacuuming, dusting, wiping down windows, and generally what would be considered a complete house cleaning. Our fees are also paid in accordance with California wage and hour laws. We therefore have tax implications as do our cleaning vendors and as such our rates may be higher than what a person/private host may charge who does the work themselves and accepts payment under the table (and does not report earnings for tax purposes). Our cleaners also always show up and on time. We are paying them for that consistency as it means you should not ever walk into a home that has not been cleaned or cleaned poorly. We hope that helps add color on this portion of the reservation cost.

Please note the crib is not equipped with sleeping blankets / sheets -- please prepare to provide your home due to safety/health and covid precautions.

This home uses outdoor security cameras for guest and staff safety. We require those to be left untouched during any reservation.

Please note, some items shown in photographs may not be available during a rental period including alcohol, some personal items of owners, and anything owners may consider. If you have determined there is something you consider material or 'must have' prior to booking, please request in writing and we will confirm before accepting or confirming your stay/reservation. Refunds or credits or cancelation without penalty will not be possible.

The Airbnb app does not properly capture our TV settings: we have a living room 55" HDTV Frame Samsung Smart TV; all apps are preloaded and include Netflix, Hulu, Prime, YouTube, eg- you will need your own login to use. The master bedroom 44" Samsung is also a Smart TV and has pre loaded apps which will require a user login. We do not have Cable; apologies for any confusion. The upstairs living room Projector with Amazon Firestick is available (previously listed here as unavailable) but in fact is available with instruction. This screen/unit is approximately 80" (diagonal)
