About Cardiff Vacations

Meet the Owners: Alison & Julio Sanchez

A love for the ocean runs deep in my family. I remember that every day after he came back from work, my father used to sit on the porch and gaze at the sea. I lived in the ocean view duplex my parents built on their Cardiff-by-the-Sea lot all the way through high school.

After my father’s death in 1995, my mother was left alone, and when she was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2006, my husband Julio and I rented our house and moved in to look after her. My mother passed away in 2016, but I had too many memories tied up to this place to just sell it off. So Julio and I decided to make the best of it and built this complex of vacation rentals so that others might get to enjoy the beauty of the ocean.

My husband Julio is originally from Guatemala and gained US citizenship on the USS Midway after serving in the Marines for four years, between 1994 and 1998. He shares a special connection with people who chose to make the US their new home and to those who donned its military uniforms.
