We were married in June 2016 and are enjoying our bi-coastal marriage together (Boston and Cardiff)! This is a picture of us at the Opening Day of the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club! A must do event if you've never attended! Of just spend a day at the races if you're in town during the season!
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 25 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 dinners and family reunions.

Most of these reviews claim this place is perfect for families - which I do not doubt, but I would also like to call out that it is also suitable for a group of young adults. My friends and I rang in the new year this past weekend, and could not have been more comfortable. The house is very accommodating for large groups (we had 11 people stay with Ken's approval of course.). Just be sure to move the party inside once it hits 10 p.m. as noise tends to travel. But, rest assured once you are inside there is no need to control your noise level as the house is pretty much sound proof as long as the doors and windows are closed. Thank you for the great stay Ken! I would certainly stay her again and recommend the property to anyone inquiring! Cheers!
Kristine and her friends were particularly nice to have over the New Year holiday! They clearly had a great time and we’re respectful of our place and neighbors! We hope to see her and friends again sometime !
Great place to stay around San Diego
We vacationed with two other families and Ken’s place is truly awesome and very accomendating.
Great spaces for gathering, cooking, game playing, and chilling.
This property is well situated in Encinitas with an easy walk to Swami’s Beach, Meditation gardens, and downtown Encinitas. Bobby Riggs racquet club a couple blocks away for pickleball or tennis fans. They sport a great coffee/baked goods spot too. Owner/manager extremely helpful/responsive to questions/concerns. Would go back for a multi-family gathering. Thank you Ken and Becca!
Great spot with plenty of room for our family of eight.
Lyle and family were great guests! Of course they’re welcome back anytime!
We loved it! The rooftop was so peacful and just the perfect getaway. The beds were cozy, and it felt like you were staying in your own home. We loved the personal touches of the family photos! Close to the cutest shopping center and plenty of restaurants.
But the best part was how accommodating Ken was. Early check-in with and extended check-out to work with our schedules. We were so thankful.
Gorgeous Beautiful house
This house is so beautiful, clean and just a perfect place for my family. The owner Ken was so awesome and so understanding - communicating with him with few questions was a breeze, he even let us have our small quick rehearsal for my youngest daughter wedding (the venue for the wedding was booked the day before) I cannot wait to visit this place again for a much needed relaxing getaway this summer with no hectic wedding planning hoopla's. Overall, I truly recommend this wonderful house. Thank you so much. Jo D.
Congrats Jo on your daughter’s wedding! We’re happy to be a small part in this special event for your family and of course hope to see you next summer!
Within 20 minutes of the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, LEGOLAND and just over an hour to Disneyland
