About Owner/Manager

We were married last June and are enjoying our first year together!

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2014

Why Owner/Manager chose Cardiff-by-the-Sea

This house is charming, spacious, with room for a nice sized group and central throughout San Diego County, including minutes from our local beaches and coastal communities of Del Mar, Solana Beach, Encinitas and Carlsbad. We're only 20 minutes to downtown (the Gaslamp District) and just over an hour away from Disneyland.

What makes this house unique

Rooftop deck with ocean sunset and sunrise views. Nice patio in the back to relax as well. The pool table upstairs is enjoyed by many! The home is good for small special events such as reception dinners and family reunions.

Truly a Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

1. Ken was and is an amazing host. He called me about an hour or two before checking just to go over a couple things with me about the house. He’s very accommodating as well kind. Answered every single one of my questions and made suggestions of what to do in Cardiff by the Sea.

2. Now the house, this house is amazingly beautiful. The kitchen was super spacious, enough for you to kick and be around your friends. The dining table was long enough to fit our big party and the living room was cozy enough to watch the all star game with a comfy spacious couch. The rooms were spacious as well and plenty of bathrooms for our big party. THE ROOF! Now the roof was to die for. It had lounge chairs with a bonfire to relax and watch the sunset or if you’re an early bird see the sun rise. The rooftop deck was a great place for all of us to bond and enjoy our stay at the house. The backyard was great with a basketball court and all the basketball fanatics enjoyed it. The pool table was like the cherry on top and was great to have.

Thank you Ken for everything! Will definitely be back!

Beautiful home, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 moms and 6 kids stay at this house for spring break, and we had a great time. It was spacious enough to accommodate all of us, and it was well equipped. Basketball court in the small back yard was a big hit for the kids. It only took 15-20 minutes to get to Legoland, and <10 minutes to get to the beach.

Best Rental We've Had Yet

  • 5 of 5

This home was extremely comfortable for my family. We stayed 3 nights and loved every second of it. It was very clean, which is a major priority for me. There were plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms, and even extra beds for everyone. Our dogs enjoyed the stay as well. The rooftop terrace has an amazing view. There were plenty of televisions, a record player, DVDs, game systems, a pool table, beach gear, the rooftop terrace, back patio, separate dining space, and all amenities were taken care of for us. I really cannot say enough good things about this place. It is by far the best rental my family has stayed in.

Amazing Cardiff Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This spacious and well equipped retreat is perfectly located and has all the amenities needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The owner Ken is friendly, attentive and easy to communicate with and will do everything possible to make your stay a wonderful one. My husband and I travel on vacation with our Boxer so this home was perfect for our furry four footed family member. When we return to California we will definitely request this home again!
