  • Great place


    The views are fantastic and the home is very comfortable. The only reason for 4 stars is the kitchen has only basic dishware and it would not be possible to cook an entire meal there.

    This is a wonderful place! The views are great, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the location is nice. The only reason for the 4 start is that the kitchen has limited dishware. There are plates, cups, and glasses. But, there are not sufficient supplies to cook a full meal.

    The apartment was equipped with everything you would need very accommodating. Beds were comfortable. View was amazing and the drive to the beach was short.

  • Unplugging here was the best.


    What a lovely weekend that was! My life and mind needed to slow down and Cardiff was the place to do it.

    This property was perfect.

    The view was killer!

    Getting to the beach is always a treat for us. Falling asleep and waking up to a panoramic view of the coastline was an added bonus. The biggest risk of not sleeping at home is missing my bed but thankfully the bed was super comfy!

    There were chairs available to bring down to the beach along with a cooler.

    This rental has many thoughtful conveniences.

    My inner child got all excited when I saw they also have a game room in the garage with a 1980’s video console. It was so awesome to play Pac-Man and Centipede again. (No quarters necessary)

    The restaurants and bars are just a short walk down the hill. We really didn’t have to worry about groceries or anything, there were great breakfast spots and a brewery close by.

    It was a very quiet neighborhood, btw. I didn’t even need my earplugs!

    Can’t wait to get back!!
