Overview

San Diego Townhome Rental Photos and Description

3BR Gardenview Vacation Rental San Diego, California USA

This fabulous twin-home is located close to the beach in the heart of north coastal San Diego.

Our three-bedroom/2.5-bath townhome is situated in a distinctive private, gated community that features a private courtyard entry with custom wrought iron gates, and a beautiful landscaped front entry and common area.

You'll enter your haven to dramatic vaulted ceilings leading into the living room. A light and elegant formal dining area catches the eye. Special features include nine-foot-high ceilings, and multi-paned windows bringing in lots of light. Fans throughout the home and gentle breezes make this home cool without the need for air-conditioning.

Relax in the family room by the cozy fireplace. Catch your favorite sports or movies on the 42' HD flat screen TV, which is equipped with cable, DVR, surround-sound, a DVD, CD player, Netflix for your enjoyment and more. Beautiful and comfortable furnishings add to the ambiance. This home is equipped with WiFi.

Interior and Patio Description: The den is open to the gourmet kitchen, where family and friends will be delighted to gather.

Outside the glass doors there is a lush and spacious landscaped patio -- complete with a barbecue, table, and chairs and lovely swing. Share hors d'oeuvres, and a margarita or a fine wine as you enjoy the incredible weather that San Diego offers.

The sunny kitchen has big-view windows overlooking this flower-filled patio. It offers a breakfast nook, with a unique table that opens to seat 6-8, dishwasher, and a full-size refrigerator with filtered water and an ice dispenser. All are provided to make your stay warm and welcome!

On the second floor you'll find the large master bedroom suite with its spacious vaulted ceiling, flat screen TV, double china sinks, full tub, separate shower, and private toilet room. The second and third bedrooms each feature full size beds. The upstairs bath features double china sinks, a private toilet, a tub with shower. All upstairs bathrooms have windows for natural lighting. There is also a 1st floor powder room.

Enjoy a swim in the large beautifully landscaped pool, or enjoy a soak in the jacuzzi spa. The recreation area comes complete with a cabana with umbrella covered tables, a shower and rest rooms for your convenience.

A large grassy area invites a place for children to run, have a catch or play.

World Class Golf and Lots to do! It's less than a 10 minute drive to the beach. And it's just ten minutes to both the Del Mar Race Track and the famous Torrey Pines Golf Course. Several other golf courses are within an easy drive.

It's just 20 minutes to Sea World, downtown San Diego, the San Diego Zoo, Seaport Village, and Legoland -- and an easy drive to the Wild Animal Park. Disneyland is just 1.5 hours away.

.

Carmel Valley, Del Mar, is the best that San Diego has to offer. Many famous people have homes or vacation in Del Mar. Who knows whom you might run into!

It's just a short walk to playgrounds with tot equipment, basketball nets, and walking trails. Boogie boards, beach and wheelchair rentals, and a snack bar are beach convenient. Visit Powerhouse Park for breath-taking ocean views from the comfort of the grassy picnic/barbecue area. Or enjoy the sandy beach here.

Torrey Pines Reserve is great for hikes overlooking the ocean.

A beautiful new Trader Joes shopping center opened just 3 minutes away!

5 minutes away is the Highlands Shopping Center with 2 stories of stores, restaurants, a unique fountain for the young or young at heart to play in, Cinepolis Luxury Cinema with reclining seats and wait service at your seat!

More to See and Do! Being a little east off the ocean has the added luxury of waking to sunshine when the coastal fog may take a few hours to burn off from about mid May to mid July. Take a swim in the pool or relax in the jacuzzi before heading to the coast, or play tennis, go horseback riding, go for run or ride at the bike trails that are all close by. Your preferred church or synagogue are very nearby.

Quaint Del Mar is a haven for strollers who enjoy window shopping, dining outdoors on the patio, and enjoying the Plaza with its three-level shops and restaurants overlooking the magnificent ocean. This is a favorite village, with a village feel. Along with all of the shops and restaurants, manicures and pedicure salons are convenient;

North Coast San Diego is full of places to practice run, bike, hike, take a yoga class, work-out and take advantage of a luxurious spa day! Enjoy the Del Mar or Solana Beach Farmer's Market on weekends. Cedro Design District is a favorite place for antique shopping and shopping for unique gifts.

Why Patti Aretz chose San Diego

This property is our home not just a rental property. Many of the pieces are designed and built as one a kind pieces. The home is decorated with a contemporary look and comfort in mind. It is immaculate, breezy with fans throughout, very well organized with living in style in mind. The kitchen and den overlooks the lush garden which the homeowners have enjoyed nurturing over 18 years. The foliage is beautiful and a pleasure to enjoy over morning coffee or tea in the kitchen nook. We absolutely love our home, proximity to the pool and spa and beaches, and are proud to have our guests enjoy it as well!

Great vacation property

  • 4 of 5

Patti and Steve have a lovely townhouse in a great location. It is spacious and comfortable and had everything we needed. Patti and Steve were very accommodating and quick to respond if we needed anything. The pool at the complex was warm and never busy which we really liked. There is no A/C at the townhouse but there are ceiling fans throughout the home. The location can't be eat. It is close to the freeways and all amenities. We spent a month at this home and had a wonderful stay.

Spotless Attractive Safe, LOVED IT!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful home this past March. The home was as shown on the photos and perfectly located. We were able to enjoy San Diego and look forward to coming back to a comfortable well appointed warm home. Patti and Steve were completely available to recommend babysitters, restaurants, attractions for teenagers and young children. We made the perfect choice!

Delivered Everything and More Than Promised

  • 5 of 5

"Distinctive Del Mar Haven" delivered everything and more than promised. As pretty as the pictures, ideal location and welcoming/organized property host. Everything was so easy. Amenities of home (loved having a washer/dryer) plus a swimming pool, lots of space, and a private backyard (so pretty) -- plenty of room for all of us to stretch out and enjoy the trip and each other. Plus, so close to a fabulous beach, parks, many really good restaurants and even a movie theatre. This was our first time staying in a rental home. No reason to ever check into a San Diego hotel again with my family. We'll be back!

A beutiful stay in a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (children aged 12 and 9) stayed in this home for 6 nights in August. Patti was terrifc to deal with - extremely welcoming and helpful in all matters.We had a super time here. The place was spacious enough for all of us to enjoy our peace yet still enjoy eachothers company over breakfast in the enclosed garden or cuddling up on the cosy couch in front of the large tv for a family movie. We used the lovely pool on site every day and stopped into the nearby mall for all our grocery and kids toys buying needs. We enjoyed the location of Del Mar and found the security of the gated community particularly handy for the kids. All in all, we throughly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend this place to any other family looking for a bit of style, a bit of peace and a lot of fun in San Diego.

Perfect for our family of 4 adults and 2 children

  • 5 of 5

We just got back home after spending 5 nights in this cute townhome. Located in a very quiet and safe residential neighborhood in Del Mar, we felt comfortable and quite "at home." The house was spotless and the location perfect: after fighting traffic and crowds all day, it was so nice to return every night to the calm and relaxing atmosphere of this Del Mar neighborhood. The kids were able to swim in the community pool in the evening and there was a large municipal park just down the street within easy walking distance that, unfortunately, we never had time to visit. We enjoyed breakfast every morning outside on the secluded (and very green!) patio. The weekly rate is very reasonable and owners accommodated our every need. Thanks again Patti. We had a GREAT time and your wonderful home had a lot to do with it ! We would not hesitate to come back.

Gorgeous east Del Mar, bright and sunny, none of that morning overcast or June Gloom as we call it, that can stubbornly hover over the coast. Close enough to enjoy the beaches and much much more! Less than 10 minutes to the beach, only about 20 minutes to Sea World and a little more to Balboa Park for the World Famous San Diego Zoo and museums including the Ruben H. Fleet Science Center, the 1910 Balboa Carousel and so much more.

The Gaslamp District, Seaport Village offer a beautiful day of walking, dining and great people watching! While south, Point Loma offers the Cabrillo Lighthouse at Cabrillo National Monument, spectacular views and is close to funky Ocean Beach. Coronado is a 30 minute gorgeous ride along Mission Bay and across the Coronado Bridge.

The most famous Hotel Del Coronado is located there. It is a resort town surrounded by water-amazing beaches and San Diego Bay water sports abound.

We are 15 minutes from The Birch Aquarium at Scripps, 17 minutes to downtown La Jolla, with its gorgeous beaches, where tide pooling is a must, shopping and fine dining. La Valancia Hotel is a beautiful historic La Jolla hotel to take in the scenery or enjoy a cocktail.

More strolling opportunities include the quaint town of Del Mar, the Solana Beach Design District, or funky Encinitas. Continue north up the coast to Carlsbad for Legoland and the Carlsbad Premium Outlet Stores filled with designer goods. Onto Orange County for a day at Disneyland!

Mexico is a 45 minute ride from our home! So much to see day and over night trips, and most hotels and restaurants offer a med pass to bypass the dreaded hours long boarder wait to return. This home is perfectly located to make the most of your San Diego vacation!

Other Activities: Hiking up Torrey Pines, biking through nearby beaches and small beach towns, enjoying the many bistros by the beach (notably at the Del Mar Plaza) for breath-taking sunsets,

Our neighborhood hosts shops, movies, parks, walks, a variety of restaurants, and beach proxmity.

Golf: World famous Torrey Pines Golf Course is one of many close by for golfing challenges and pleasure.
