About The Owner

We are your typical American family, working hard to raise our children and retire soon.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose San Diego

We have been to many beach locations and know that someday we want to retire at the beach. We came across Del Mar and just fell in love with the location because of it's small town charm coupled with its beach style living.

What makes this house unique

Convenient access to the beach and shops. Beautiful ocean view and sunset/sunrises. House is full of light!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Thompsons - We thank you greatly! My families week here was amazing. We only wish it could have been longer. The house exceeded all of our expectations, from the view to the thoughtfulness of your family. This was by far the best vacation we have every had and it was because of your family opening your home to my family. As my kids said all week, this place is "amazing." We definitely plan to return next year.

We had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this beautiful home for 10 days in February! We had a wonderful time. The house is very spacious and comfortable, with many places to sit and relax, including a lovely back patio. We were definitely able to unwind in this home.

The pool table was a big hit- the kids shot pool everyday! The beds were really comfortable, as were the many pillows. ( We could have left ours at home!) The main bathroom is a full bath, and the master has a nice walk-in corner shower.

I love having a space to do laundry on vacation, and this home had that as well! The kitchen was also very nice, and we ate most of our meals at the house.

The sunsets off the back patio were lovely! We would definitely recommend this home for your stay in the Del Mar area. Julia was also very prompt in returning our security deposit, which we truly appreciated!

***(If you have small children, consider packing some toys and games for you stay, as the home isn't really set up for small children.)

Relaxing get-away

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house to stay at with our two young children while visiting relatives over Christmas. The owners were very easy to communicate with via e-mail (We didn't have any problems so never spoke by phone but were given a number). The property was easy to book and we received our deposit back promptly.

The house exceeded our expectations in that the pictures do not do justice to the beautiful view and spacious family room. The house was large, super clean, and perfectly decorated in that it was simple and tasteful. The bunkbeds in the kids bedroom had a trundle as well so we didn't have to worry about a safe place to sleep for our 3 year old. The neighborhood is quiet and close enough to Downtown Del Mar that you can easily enjoy the many restaurants and beautiful beach with just a quick drive (or long walk).

Perfect for relaxing evenings after the kids are asleep, a quiet evening on the deck enjoying the view, or having a few guests over for dinner, we really felt at home in this rental and enjoyed our stay.

Wonderful Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the use of this home. The Great Room with pool table, TV viewing area, and lanai (porch/deck) across the back of the home was perfect for us. The view of the ocean was lovely and watching the sunset was a favorite pastime. The open kitchen allowed the cooking and washing up teams to still feel part of the other activities. It was 1.1 miles walking south to Torrey Pines beach area and about 1.1 miles north to the Del Mar Park and beach access areas. My kids walked to the Starbucks about 1 mile north. Our son is a graduate student at UCSD and it was convenient for him to still get to class when he needed to. We found a welcoming Lutheran church about 2 miles north. We had Thanksgiving brunch on the lanai! Sweet!

Great Time in Del Mar

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house in Del Mar beginning of October. We were a big family group. The house turned out to be all that was promised and more - including the wonderful view from the deck. We enjoyed our time very much and hope to return.

PS Just to let future renters know: the third bedroom has bunk beds. Also it is good to have a car as the house is ways up the hill a good walk from the ocean/beach.

Large house with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a week and we couldn't have asked for more! There was plenty of space in the house for the 8 of us, and the view of the ocean was great! The house was clean and neat, with all of the amenities we could have asked for. We also got our deposit back much quicker than we anticipated.

If we ever return to San Diego, we won't even look at other rentals, we know exactly where we will stay. It was our first experience with HomeAway and it honestly couldn't have been better! Thank you so much for making our stay in San Diego so relaxing, enjoyable, and affordable!

Tip for renters: there is a Von's grocery store right off of Del Mar Heights Rd, but if you cross I-5 there is a Ralph's just a little further and WAY worth the trip.

Great central location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at this beautiful Del Mar home. As we were traveling with three kids under the age of seven, most of our days were spent North at Legoland, or South to Seaworld, so this location was perfect for us. The deck is amazing and the kids loved playing with the snails on the deck. The adults enjoyed coffee/wine out on the deck with the gorgeous ocean view. The house is quite spacious and clean. The neighborhood was very safe and quiet. We will be back next summer.
