Perfect for our family's weeklong vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family (two sixty-somethings, four thirty-somethings, three kids <6) met up to vacation in this home for a week. It was perfect for our stay. First of all, Diane was very responsive and accessible but also appropriately hands-off. She responded to emails, texts, and calls and prepared us for what to expect very thoroughly.

The house is very open--we left the windows open while we were home to let the breeze come through. I think we ate most of our meals outside on the big table just outside the kitchen, but the kitchen area was also a great place to congregate. We took advantage of the beach equipment provided, though with the hill it felt like a little too long to walk down there with all our stuff. Still, even with driving and parking we were on the Del Mar beach and Torrey Pines within minutes. The kitchen and grill all worked out great; we ate many of our meals at the home. It's a quiet location and the canyon views from the bedrooms and off the decks are excellent. We felt totally safe with our kids running around.

We had a small problem with the electrical fuse and Diane got back to us immediately. I highly recommend this property.

Close to the beach, race track, supermarkets and other SD attractions!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect scenario for our family vacation for a great week in Del Mar! The owner, Diane, coached us along the way starting months before our arrival and gave us great advice about the area. She really went above and beyond in every aspect- Fresh fruit, coffee, tons of condiments, all the beach gear needed, etc, etc! The house itself is very sapcious with 3 bedrooms and a den off the master where our 15 month daughter slept. TV's in every room including a 60+ inch "smart" TV in the living room. I cant remember the last time I've writted a review but on behalf of my families great experience, I wanted to say thanks to Diane for being a truly great hostess!

Lovely vacation home in great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for a few weeks when my family visited from Europe. It's in a lovely location by Crest Canyon, easily accessible for beautiful hikes and walks. Also very close to quaint Del Mar and the very popular beach is within a short walk. The location is great for walking almost anywhere in town and it's very quiet thanks to its spot next to the canyon, perfect for late night dinners out on the patio/backyard. Easy access to freeway if we wanted to see San Diego's other sights as well. There was lots of room for several members of our extended family to stay in the beautiful bedrooms and everything is top-notch clean and cared for. We'll definitely be staying here again!

Excellent Del Mar vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I do significant traveling (100 countries total) and in between trips we have stayed a couple times at this open, private, and airy Del Mar home. We love the great location - easy access to wonderful beaches, restaurants, shopping, quant Del Mar, and the freeway to all San Diego’s wonderful attractions. The very private setting on a canyon is peaceful and offers nice views from the bedrooms. The trails throughout Crest Canyon make for a nice hike out the back door. You can make use of the enclosed back yard for great outdoor parties or dinners. The owner is wonderful to work with.

About Diane Uke

I am a retired CPA and have a passion for art and traveling. I have lived in Del Mar for over 20 years and feel fortunate to live in one of my favorite places on earth.

Diane Uke purchased this house in 2011

Why Diane Uke chose Del Mar Heights

The moment I saw this home I knew it was perfect--bright, open, clean, private, quiet, scenic and close to everything! I would love for you to enjoy this private canyon retreat.

What makes this house unique

I feel I get to enjoy the best of all worlds while living in Del Mar--the feeling of living in a rural, remote area, yet having access to the shops, beaches and sports activities just a minute or two away.
