About Patti Aretz
We purchased this townhome with the excellent schools in mind, and proximity to Del Mar and Torrey Pines beaches. The area has grown up around us to include many restaurants, Trader Joes, Whole Foods, gyms, boutiques, parks etc. We love the convenience to freeways going north and south. The airport is 30 minutes away as is the Aquarium at Legoland, and in La Jolla at Birch Aquarium. The Oceanside Pier and the Museum of Music, are favorite spots. As a parent educator, I am always looking for special places to recommend to take children for hikes and experiences that expose them the to the gorgeous environment that is San Diego.
Patti Aretz purchased this Townhome in 1995
Why Patti Aretz chose Carmel Valley
This property is our primary home. Many of the pieces are designed and built as one a of 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 overlook the lush garden that the homeowners have enjoyed nurturing for 22 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!

Property was in great condition and everything was as advertised. Very spacious, clean and comfortable. Patti was great and timely with all communication and inquires. Very convenient location for getting around San Diego/Del Mar area. Would highly recommend and would consider renting again if in the area.
Patti's Place is Perfect
Patti's place was absolutely perfect for my family and I to relax and recharge. The home is clean and has everything you could possibly need - it was like going from home to home. Patti made everything easy for us all - there were six of us including our little dog. The pool is close by and all the wonders of San Diego and La Jolla are just on your doorstep. I could not recommend Patti's place highly enough. It's great!
Thank you so much Gail. It was a pleasure to host your family. Come back anytime!
Also love the alliterations 😉�
We had a great experience dealing with Patti from A to Z. We were originally supposed to come with our children only, but Patti was kind enough to accommodate 2 additional guests (parents) as well as lend us a crib for our 2-year old toddler. She also gave us plenty of details about her house prior to us booking it as well as after when we were arranging our trip to San Diego.
Patti's house is spacious, located in a quiet, gated community. We stayed there a whole week of July 2016 and we very much enjoyed both the proximity to Legoland (15 minutes away from Patti's home) as well the community pool. The nearby mall with a large Ralph's was very convenient to stay well stocked during the week.
We highly recommend Patti's home for a family or up to 3 couples who are looking for a comfortable and quiet place to stay in the San Diego surroundings.ex
Thanks again Patti and Steve for the excellent vacation we had in San Diego thanks to you!
Thank you so much! What a glowing and thoughtful review. Very much appreciated.
Great vacation property
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!!
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
"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!
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.
