Why CardiffVacations.com is your next destination?


First of all, Cardiff by the Sea is a desirable place to live, work, eat, shop and play.  It has some of the most beautiful weather in the world.  Cardiff is known as a world class surfing destination.  Some of the surfing spots include Cardiff Beach, Pipes and Swamis to name a few.  Located just south of the City of Encinitas and just north of the Cities of Del Mar & Solana Beach.

Growing up in North County during the 70’s I got to live in this magical place called Cardiff.  It has seen changes as things evolved. I grew up in these homes with my parents and when they passed I wanted to create a legacy to them.  They loved Cardiff and all that it brought to their lives.  My husband and I worked to create a vacation experience for all to enjoy as a lasting memory to my parents.  We put a labor of love into this project and tried to keep comfort, peace and beauty in mind when creating these incredible places for all to enjoy and see what I got to see when growing up.  We hope you all fall in love with our Cardiff by the Sea and love what we have created for you.
