Barbara purchased this house in 1971

Why Barbara chose San Diego County

What makes this house unique

The property is on the sand so you can just step off the deck or enjoy the ocean breeze from the deck.

Excellent retreat at the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We are just wrapping up an incredible stay at the beach house for two weeks over the Christmas and New Year's holidays. The house is in an absolutely perfect location, with views as far as the eye can see. With it's proximity to restaurants, shopping, and Powerhouse Park, this house is the ultimate family getaway.

I can tell the house has been recently upgraded, with easy-to-keep-clean light laminate flooring, granite kitchen and bath counter tops, new tile in the showers, and nice appliances. I also think the comfy couches are brand-new. The kitchen is well-stocked with everything we needed, from serving ware to wine openers to placemats, plenty of dishes, wine glasses and silverware. We used the patio's barbecue several times and it worked great. The bedrooms all have matching, newer comforters, and plenty of towels for the bathrooms, including a hallway linen closet. I also used the full-size washer and dryer often.

And can we talk about the location a little more?! We are actually a family from nearby in San Diego county, so I can tell you that this is one of the PRIME beach locations in our entire county. We were able to walk to dinner, breakfast, Starbucks, shopping, pizza, bars, a beautiful park and of course, step to the beach. Almost every day we walked about a half-mile north to Dog Beach, enjoying all the puppies running around. Our patio gave us the perfect location to watch the parade of people walking by all day, enjoying the walkable, hard-packed sand right outside our door. And the sunsets, WOW! There is nothing like a Pacific Ocean sunset, with cocktail in hand, watching the sun sink and looking for the "Green Flash." We had a few days of rain during our stay, it's winter after all, but watching the stormy sea through the windows while snuggled up in a blanket was another pleasure.

We thank the owners so much for providing us this amazing location for the ultimate Winter Staycation! We hope to come back again another time!

sooo fun!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time at this simple, yet awesome beach front property. The weather was amazing, the location was the best and the endless entertainment of beach fun filled our week with excitement. The house was perfect for our family. No A/C, but with fans in each room it was fine. We loved it and will for sure rent it again.

Part of our family

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been staying in this home every summer for the last eight years. It literally has become our favorite week together.The property is on the beach. We watch the waves and our children play as, in a small way, they have grown up here. Over time we've gotten to know the owners. When there have been issues, which have been few, they've always been responsive and fix things promptly. We hope to come back for many years to come.

Family Friendly and on the sand!

  • 5 of 5

Let's be real here folks...Can anyone watch the sunset, on the beach and still be sitting in their home? Well,,,You can by staying here! I took so many sunset pictures my facebook friends are all jealous! This was great for a family vacation. Just like the beach houses I remember from my youth...Big open rooms and a Walton style dining table for eating or board games Kids are so easy to watch as they make sand castles as the adults sit on the patio. There's really nothing like the Del Mar beach. Paradise! Easy to park behind the house, super comfortable and what a way to start and end a day. I would much rather rent a home ON the beach than across the street. Really appreciate that it's family friendly and comfortable. I already miss the low tide walks and running on the sand. If its booked when you want to's probably because my family is renting it again. Enjoy your vacation!

Great Beach Access, Poorly Maintained Property

  • 2 of 5

We recently spent two weeks at this house. We were very excited to spend time at the beach. The house has a wonderful location. The experience of walking straight onto the beach from the house is fantastic. However, this house is poorly maintained.

Here is a list of the repairs this house needs:


1. The light outside the garage does not work.

2. Only one light works on the porch.

3. The side lighting is poor. You cannot have the front side lighting on at the

same time as the back side lighting


1. The laminate floor boards are lifting and chipping throughout the house.

2. There is a noticeable sagging sound and feel in the hall floor when walking on it

3. The rugs are filthy and stained


1. The dining room chairs are wobbly and falling apart

2. The deck chairs have no support

3. The mattresses are old and sagging


1. The screens are coming off and are full of holes

2. The windows are hard to open and close

3. The curtain rods fall down when opening and closing the curtains


1. The counters are chipping and the cabinets are falling apart

2. The dryer catches clothes in the drum


1. The refrigerator door does not close properly

2. The cooking appliances are old and worn

3. The cabinets fall off when opening them

4. Only two dish towels for drying dishes provided. None for cleaning

5. The sink is stained and chipped


1. The master bath shower is chipped and stained


1. No dishwashing soap provided

2. The grill was filthy and we had to purchase our own propane

3. Only one beach umbrella is provided

4. The beach chairs are falling apart

5. The bed sheets are of poor quality. It is like sleeping on sandpaper

6. The towels were also of poor quality

Owner's Response: We have owned this family vacation home since 1971 and have rented weekly for over 12 years to multiple families including many who repeat year after year. We do however take any concerns seriously. Since this review all outside lights and all window screens have been replaced due to how hard weather elements can be on beachfront properties. Many other issues have also been appropriately addressed. We have always strived to make our home a comfortable, enjoyable place to vacation for our guests.

Great Del Mar Beach Experience

  • 4 of 5

We live near Del Mar and wanted to experience living on the beach for a week. It was by far one the best experiences!


The location of this house is perfect, you can walk to restaurants within a couple of minutes. Needless to say being beachfront is priceless.

The House:

The house is on the first floor which is very convenient. Large garage for parking & 2 parking spots outside came in handy. The house was clean, had everything we needed, bathrooms remodeled, house felt very comfortable. The owner made the process of renting very easy.

We hope to continue to stay at this beach house in years to come.
