Overview

Del Mar House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Start your day enjoying a view of the ocean with a cup of coffee, maybe dolphins, maybe whales, maybe pelicans.

Only steps from the bluff you can enjoy a day at the beach and easily come home for lunch. Torrey Pines State Reserve and the Torrey Pines Annex are just a few minutes walk. Miles of trails are available by bike, as is the entire coastline, a very popular weekend ride.

It's an easy stroll to Del Mar Village and world class dining as well as casual coffee. It's so much fun to enjoy a beverage and the sunset at the Del Mar Plaza, if for some reason one is bored with the perfect view from the front porch.

Whether you want a challenging hike through the Torrey Pines Reserve or a day on the chaise lounge, roll out of bed on 7th Street and you are there. Fall asleep to the sound of the surf.

Our home has been in the family for 47 years and it's comfortable. My brother's house adjoins the property and can also be rented on VRBO #313025 if you have a larger group.

About Carol

My Mom bought this property in 1969. I lived here for a while in my 20's, then inherited the property when she passed in 2002. It has lots of good times and good memories attached to it.

Carol purchased this house in 1969

Why Carol chose Del Mar

We are 4th generation San Diegans and we love our town.

What makes this house unique

We swim, bathe in the sun, walk to Torrey Pines, dance Zumba when we can, entertain friends by the fire inside and out, watch the sunset.

Amazing, quaint house right near beach and restaurants!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing property. Beautiful landscaping, perfect size for a small group, and a great location. We spent a long weekend here and couldn't had have a better time. We walked/ran along the beach each morning and enjoyed sunsets overlooking the Pacific each evening. Highly recommend this property for all its wonderful attributes. Everything that would be needed for a few days of cooking, relaxing, enjoying the beach are all at this cute little house in Del Mar!

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this beautiful, peaceful home. My 12 year old and I had a great time exploring the neighborhood, walking to the beach and enjoying downtown Del Mar. The house is in a quiet neighborhood with a very easy walk downtown. The house is so fun and perfect-we loved the back patio and picked lemons to make homemade lemonade every day! Carol was great; she was always quick to respond and we had everything we needed for a perfect week.

Beach rental

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this beach house and had a wonderful time.

The house is a two minute walk to the beach. This home is located in a

quiet neighborhood and parking was never a problem. The home was clean and

came with everything we needed. The washer and dryer were so nice to have

and the garage had beach toys we could use as well. The home is 5 minutes to the freeway which makes heading up or down the coast a breeze. The only negative is the actual walk to the ocean. While the beach is a two minute walk this gets you to the top

of a very steep hill which you need to walk down to actually get to the water. We were able to do this daily but if you have children younger than 5 I would not recommend this as it is dangerous. You can walk down to the beach access area which will take you a good 10 to 15 minutes with all your beach gear. That all being said this is a great rental with only one negative which as we have found is typical. There will always be one thing

that isn't perfect but not something that would be keep us from renting there again.

OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME FOR 5 GLORIOUS DAYS!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to surprise his two teenage boys with a fun trip to one of our favorite beach towns ... Del Mar. From the moment we arrived, we fell in love with our charming home-away-from-home! It reminded me a lot of my grandparents bungalow that I frequented at the East end of Long Island. The views are magnificent and sitting at the dining room table each morning, looking at the ocean while sipping my coffee, was a real treat. The pictures shown truly convey the cottage. We cooked at home most evenings and there are plenty of pots, dishes, etc. that you would need to do so. The patio in the back is great for barbecuing and sitting around in the evenings. With only 1 television in the house (Yeah!!!) it was great to get all involved in playing family games and having wonderful conversations. The front patio was so nice to sit at and share a cocktail with my hubby and watch the sunset. The town of Del Mar is a short walk with some wonderful restaurants and shops. The house is just a short drive to Solana beach, Torrey Pines Park and many other sites to visit. There is a Vons, grocery store, just up the street from the house on Del Mar Heights Road. Most days were spent at the 7th Street beach (1 block from the house) and you can pack a lunch or just wander back home for a bite to eat. There were boogie boards in the garage that we used for fun in the surf. Carol, the owner, was very specific regarding the property and the surrounding area. She is very pleasant to speak with on the telephone. The house was clean and tidy and I would highly recommend this adorable cottage to anyone considering a VRBO in San Diego.

A dreamy spot!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in this great little spot.

Easy access from the freeway.

Xlnte location, we managed to park the car most of the trip and bike or walk everywhere we went, including the Fair.

Kitchen is well stocked with the basics.

Great back porch for entertaining.

Compost bin for food scrap recycling was a plus

Photos did not do the home justice.

Front patio for sunset watching was perfect.

Street is quiet and parking is easy.

The house to the west is under construction, though it was a minor disruption. Contractor went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. No music, no screaming, no hassles.

Access to the beach is perfect, walk down the road, hike the cliff and you are at the water in minutes. A short walk further will take you to the PowerHouse park @ 15th street.

Great food is close as is Carolyn's Designer Resale store, great selection. One could probably pack underwear and a toothbrush and buy a wardrobe @ Carolyn's.

Grocery stores are a short drive over the hill.

This is our 3rd summer trip to Del Mar and this is one of the best spots we've rented.

beach home in Del Mar

  • 4 of 5

My daughter-in-law and I enjoyed a 2 week stay at this home and had a wonderful vacation.

The back patio is delightful and the bedrooms were very comfortable. We enjoyed 3 beaches, one at 15th St one at 25th St and also Torrey Pines Beach, just a short drive away.

We picked figs and limes from the trees and cooked out on the grill most of the time. There are several fine restaurants in Del Mar. We especially enjoyed the Chinese one "Del Mar Rendevous" All in all we had a lovely time.
