We could not have been happier with our stay at Don\'s rental in Cardiff by the Sea. There were no surprises. Everything was exactly as described. It was perfect for 5 people with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. We felt like we were completely private when we went to bed at night and it really refreshed us for spending 2 full weeks together! The sunsets were so beautiful. And I liked the fact that Cardiff was a much slower pace than the surrounding towns. We walked to the beach and enjoyed the restaurants in town and surrounding areas. We had a meal by the ocean in DelMar at The Poseidon and it was very good. We got to see our first sunset there. Carlsbad was much more crowded than I thought it would be. It made me appreciate the slower pace of Cardiff. We played games every night at the dining room table and had some great bonding family times there with 2 family members who came to visit. The table was perfect for 7 -8 people to play games. One thing I was looking for was parking for 3 vehicles, with family living in the area and wanting to visit. There were 2 spaces in and out of garage in area and 1 space in front which managed to work the times we needed it. Hard to find places with that many spaces in San Diego area. The only thing that we forgot and wasn\'t at the house was a hair dryer, but we just went air dry!

Great place! Great location!

Had a wonderful vacation at Cardiff-by-the-Sea. The house was perfect for our family of four adults...well maintained, lots of space, every amenity we needed. Plus, the hosts were so gracious and easy to work with from start to finish. You couldn\'t ask for more in terms of location if you like the beach and short walks to great restaurants and shops. We also took a day trip by car to Joshua Tree National Park, which we\'d highly recommend. We definitely hope to return!

Everything is as advertised, great host, convenient location, beautiful area.

We were on a multi-generation vacation with the grandparents and our young kids. The room setup is perfect for us. The breeze from the ocean is the best thing, along with the roof deck and the ocean-facing balcony. Its conveniently located, about 30 mins to downtown, safari zoo, 10 mins to legoland. We got Go San Diego cards and used the house as our base camp and did Day trips to the nearby destinations. We also spent some time on the local beach. There\'s so much to do that we were never out of options. San Diego is a beautiful place, no wonder everyone wants to live there. We really had a great time and would highly recommend the house.

Perfect reunion location

We couldn\'t have been happier with this rental. We are a family of four (mum, dad, teenagers, 18 and 14) from UK so invested a lot in the airfares. We are very glad we did! We wanted a SoCal vacation, we wanted San Diego area rather than LA and we thought North County SD would be perfect. It was. The location is great. Cardiff has beach-front chic for those evenings dining, wining and watching the sun set over the pacific. It also has the best \'one block back\' from the beach restaurants, cardiff market (it\'s like Grand Central, NY food market in beachtown, CA). We had a couple of day trips up to LA, (we have teenagers so Beverly, Burbank, Faifax), we did Balboa Park, SD Zoo, USS Midway. Palm Prings cable car. Kayak\'d La Jolla. The list goes on! Don (owner) is a perfect gentleman and very effective. We couldn\'t have been happier with the engagement and interacrion we had with him. Highly recommend this rental.
