Meet the Owners: Alison & Julio Sanchez

Growing up in North County during the 70’s I got to live in this magical place called Cardiff-by-the-Sea. I grew up in these homes with my parents and I wanted to create a legacy to honor them. They loved Cardiff and all that it brought to their lives.

My husband and I worked to create a luxury vacation rental apartments for you to enjoy in the comfort of a private home with your family or group of friends. This project was a labor of love and we wanted to keep comfort, peace, and beauty in mind when designed and remodeled these incredible homes. We hope you all fall in love with our Cardiff-by-the-Sea apartments and love what we created.
