About Betsy Dean

I have lived in the area for over 20 years & my family has been in the hotel business for 4 generations.. I personally manage the bookings and am a hands on owner. Everything is up to the standards that i look for when traveling myself. I have tried to think of everything that a guest would like to have so that you only need to bring what you want to wear!

Why Betsy Dean chose Del Mar

The beach is a five minute walk from the house! Quiet and private and plenty of parking! A short walk to restaurants, shops, tennis and hiking in the San Dieguito Wetlands or Torrey Pines State Park.This property is unique because it has a large yard in an otherwise cramped housing area. There is also a wonderful vegetable garden and fruit trees in an enclosed yard by the train tracks. The train is not loud and after a few go by, you won't even notice it! The property is beautifully taken care of and beach chairs, umbrellas and toys are for guest use. House has been recently renovated and is ready for you!

What makes this house unique

We have tried to take care of everything you need to relax and enjoy your time in Del Mar. We have just rennovated the entire property and it is gorgeous!

Perfect and beautiful inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented many homes over the years, I must say that this has been the best rental of all by far,. The house is absolutely beautiful, it has everything you could possibly need. The floor plan is open, spacious and bright.

The yard is lovely, with beautiful flowers all around.

We loved the outdoor fireplace and hot tub.

Kitchen is extremely well equipped, made me want to cook every night.

I cannot say enough about this property.

I will definitely come back.

Thank you Betsy for making our stay so enjoyable.

the rental with everything !!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

this rental was equiped in some areas better than our own home. especially the kitchen. we spent christmas week here with 4 adults and 3 grandkids ages 3 - 5. i couldn't have found a better place. a big grass side yard to run around and hit wiffle balls etc. naturally the jacuzzi was a major hit. the house has loads of beach toys chairs and towels and a very easy, short walk to the beach. the great thing about this rental was, everything worked and was in great order !!!!!!!! we never had to call the owner the entire week. the cleaning woman that comes mid week is great. also, the owners daughter danny baby sat all three kids while the adults walked into town for dinner. she was great and the kids loved her. i could go on and on, but trust me, you won't be disappointed.

All The Comforts of Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was lovely. With a large family, we always prefer a home to a hotel and this was perfect for us. So often, home rentals are sparse and sterile in nature. Betsy makes this location a real home away from home. Everything you need is provided and the proximity to the beach makes it a wonderful get away.

Owner's Response: For 4 generations, my family has owned and managed some of the best hotels in California and Hawaii, so I think that the hospitality gene is in my blood! I try to provide as much as possible to raise the bar for our guests' enjoyment and relaxation at one of the best places in Southern California. I appreciate your kind review and that you took the time to let me know we are doing a good job! Have a great summer! Betsy P.S.The organic fruit and vegetable garden has been completed!

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

Our family spent a week at this property recently and we had a wonderful vacation. The house is close to the beach and 6 adults and 3 children were most comfortable. The jacuzzi on the patio was a highlight for the kids ages 3, 4 and 6. We appreciated the open floor plan and the three flat screen TVs were a bonus as everyone has different viewing tastes when we would come home from a long day. We managed to take in Disneyland, Sea World, Lego Land, Safari Land and the San Diego Zoo. Our best memories were being on the beach surfing, building sand castles, taking long walks/runs and playing in the surfing The owner was wonderful to work with and gave us lots of great ideas for places to go in the area. I would recommend this location to a friend or relative.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over Christmas and had several children aged five and under with our party. The property was everything we had hoped it would be. It is spacious, very well kept and tastefully decorated. It felt like home from the moment we walked in. The owner even put up a Christmas tree on our behalf! The outdoor fireplace and spa are really nice touches to the well-planned outdoor living space. The kitchen was stocked with way more than you usually see in a rental--wide variety of pots, pans, dishes, spices, etc., which made the experience hassle free. Three large screen TVs are a feature, especially for mixed age levels/interests. There's nice outdoor play space for children too.

On the negatives, renters should be aware that the AMTRAK train (and the occasional cargo train) passes by the house several times throughout the day. The quality windows and doors dampen the sound, so we barely noticed. Trains are not all through the night, so it's not a big deal.

I would stay here again and emphatically recommend it to anyone!
