This property is perfect for a family vacation. It is literally across the street from the beach, a block from lifeguard headquarters and amazing oceanfront restaurant (which is kid friendly) and the complex pool is right outside your door. There is a great play ground on the ocean front 2 blocks away and Del Mar village is a short 3 block walk with some great stores and lots of good restaurants and Starbucks which was a perk!

The rental is stocked with everything you need for cooking basics like oil and spices and sauces like ketchup and salad dressing not to mention all the baby supplies they have like a high hair, baby gate and play pen. They have beach chairs and toys that were a hit with our kids.

Nina who manages the rentals is awesome. Super helpful and responds promptly to any questions you may have. I would recommend this property to anyone really and I'm sure we will be back.

One thing to be aware of is the train goes right by the home. This didn't bother us at all and the kids loved it but if you're sensitive to sounds or a light sleeper bring your ear plugs. Definitely shouldn't be a deal breaker but something to be aware of.

All in all this is one of the best rentals we have used!

Thanks so much!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation and would definitely choose this place again. We were within walking distance of the beach, a playground for the kids, shops, and amazing restaurants to watch the sun set. The town home was clean and lovely, plenty of room for our family of 5. Nina gave us all the information we needed and was responsive with my questions. Not one complaint...I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a wonderful stay in Del Mar!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Getting up in the morning and seeing all the surfers headed out to the water while the sun was rising somehow takes your cares away and brings you back in time.

This complex is the best location in Del Mar, just have to know about the train.

The apartment is spacious and comfortable. Nina was very helpful even after we left and realized we had forgotten something behind, she mailed it to us at home.

Everything was very clean in the condo and we enjoyed our stay very much.

Fabulous stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation at the Del Mar Town Home, it was perfect for my husband and I with our two kids (3 & 4 years old). The walk to the beach is so easy, and there is a pool just outside the town home if you don't want to go to the beach. We loved having the parking spot in the garage to load the kids and stroller up for sightseeing or a day at the SanDiego zoo. The inside of the home was beautiful and very well decorated. There were plenty of towels available for showering and beach going. Plus having the washer and dryer in unit was a huge plus, especially if you have young kids!

My only minor complaint was the train just behind the house, it comes by a couple times each evening although it didn't seem to bother our kids at all!

Nina was fantastic from the first question I asked all the way through our stay she was attentive and on top of things! We would definitely recommend this location and Nina, and plan to come back for many more family vacations!

Amazing condo with even better service!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at the Del Mar Town Home. Was perfect for us and our 3 young children to explore the beach and all that Del Mar had to offer. Even more impressive was the service we received from Nina. She was very attentive prior to our stay and upon our arrival but went above and beyond when our flight was cancelled and we were scrambling to find accommodations. Would recommend the location and Nina to anyone!

This condo is fantastic, plenty of room for everyone. A one block walk to the beach and easy walking distance to the heart of Del Mar. Shopping and a multitude of dining available for all tastes. The patio (with BBQ) was a wonderful place to relax. We thought the trains might bother us but they didn't at all. I would highly recommend it. The property manager was fantastic as well and was even able to extend our stay at the last minute. We will stay here again.
