California coastal lifestyle, across the street from Torrey Pines Beach Del Mar
About Matthew Semmer
The owner Barry came to San Diego in the 80's after many other cities, and lived up and down the coast in Ocean Beach, Pacific Beach and La Jolla, but chose the Del Mar Terraces for the natural scenery of the lagoon and Torrey Pines preserve, great open beach and friendly livable community. Work takes him to many cities in many countries, but none can compare to the combination of awesome weather, fantastic beaches, great surf, friendly community and green open space so close to San Diego city.
Matthew Semmer purchased this Townhome in 1987
Why Matthew Semmer chose Torrey Pines
Barry and his wife had so much fun as a family spending time here, even though they've moved, they're hoping others get to create the same memories they have from their time in Del Mar! When their kids were little they would often walk the beach around sunset into Del Mar village, stay for ice-cream or dinner, and catch the bus back, as it stops at the beach, on North Torrey Pines road, less than 3 minutes walk from the front door. Their favorite restaurant, Roberto's, is also less than a 3 minute walk, with a fun casual patio overlooking the lagoon. Commuting to work or the airport is quick and easy as I-5 is only 1.2 miles to the east, or alternatively, the scenic route takes you past the world famous Torrey Pines Golf Course and beautiful La Jolla.
What makes this Townhome unique
They loved being so close to the ocean and beach, for its combination of beauty, tranquility and fun. Barry and his wife brought those same elements into the decoration of our beach townhouse, giving it a bright, airy, refreshing feel that we think will make you feel relaxed and at home. The lagoon with all its birds, frogs and fish add a nice natural element that you rarely find so close to a big city like San Diego. The pools, jacuzzi's, tennis courts, private 5 acre park and other recreation options of Sea Point give you multiple options to add lots of fun memories to your relaxation.

Amazing location, amazing property, amazing stay!
This condo has everything you need to enjoy a visit to San Diego. You can’t beat the location and the condo is emasculate. We will definitely stay here every time we come to San Diego.
Great condo for family vacay
This property is exactly as advertised. It’s super clean and is in a great location. There’s about a 5-7 min walk to the beach entrance at Torrey Pines State Beach. It’s made extremely easy to walk with the wagon to put all your available beach needs there in the garage. It’s a two car garage but plenty spacious for our Honda Accord. There’s a huge dry rack in the garage where the full size washer and dryer is, too. There’s a hose outside to get extra cleaned off before entering the house. The kitchen is fantastic with all the amenities. There’s a huge dining table for 6. There’s a bunch of board games and the living room is super comfortable. I loved the blinds on the patio and inside to keep the early evening heat out. There are two gorgeous skylights in the upstairs which helped us from needing to turn on too many lights during the day. The downstairs bedrooms and bathrooms were very clean with soft carpet. The beds were very comfortable and the air conditioner was perfect. I even got a little chilly sometimes, but nothing a light jacket didn’t fix on occasion. The kids loved the tennis courts and playground and access to the clubhouse to play foosball and ping pong. There’s a couple of nice pools but we didn’t use them as we were at the beach every day. We did attempt to use the bbq for steaks, but the grill didn’t get quite hot enough with the coals. We might have needed more. There were plenty of towels for showers and beach going. This place was nicely located to access the freeway and to downtown Del Mar. If I had once complaint, it was the WiFi signal inside the house. It didn’t seem to work very well , especially downstairs. But that’s a very minor complaint that doesn’t affect the 5 stars. Great property, great location, and a great property manager, Matt. He was very attentive and dealt with everything swiftly; including my husband accidentally locking himself out of the house.
Thank you so much for the feedback and kind words Colleen. I will certainly look into those observations. It was wonderful having you and your family stay with us, thanks for treating our home so respectfully. Hope we see you again! :)
Very nice location. Just steps from the beach. Clean. Very accommodating,
Thank you Kari for the kind words, we are glad you enjoyed your time with us.
it was close to the beach and very easy to get in and out with all the amenities.
The Perfect Location
We had a great stay here in Del Mar. It was absolutely perfect for two couples. Matthew is an outstanding host. His communication was excellent and he took the time to meet us and show us all the ins and outs of the property and the area. Both bedrooms were comfortable, there are three bathrooms so plenty of room to get ready.
The two pools on the property are easily accessible and very nice. The beach is a 4 minute simple walk. Access to San Diego for everything also very easy. The golf was outstanding. You are minutes from Torrey Pines. Honestly we could not have selected a better place to stay.
Thanks Matthew for everything.
