About Kathy

I am a San Diego Realtor, I have managed my own properties for over 30 years. My husband Jim and I built and designed this home as our dream home 22 years ago. We raised our daughter in Del Mar and now she is a teacher at a charter school, she has her masters degree in administration. We love Del Mar and the San Diego area for its great schools, climate, beachs, entertainment, restaurants, quality of life and all that the area has to offer.

Kathy purchased this house in 1990

Why Kathy chose San Diego

Our vacation home is easy access from freeeway 5 and approximately 20-30 minutes from the airport yet we feel like we are away from it all in our own little world with the surrounding beauty of the ocean, nature and sandstone cliffs. We are a straight drive down the freeway 5 to sea world ,old town and downtown san diego.

What makes this house unique

We are walking distance to the beach, and great local restaurants along Carmel Valley Road. The back of the home abuts an open space nature reserve. We also enjoy the Lagoon view, Torrey Pine Trees, and the beautiful sunsets when they occur. Watching a sail boat sail on the ocean or a wind surfer, or a ship out at sea from the great room or decks is one of the many thrills to enjoy in this home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

So happy your group/family had such a great time and good 1st time vrbo experience. You guys really did your research to find fun things to do in our area with hiking and kayaking! Thank you for being so clean and respectful with our vacation home! Love to have your group back again! Kathy

A great family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Kathy was a very gracious host and very responsive to our questions before, during and after our stay. The house was sufficient for our family of 13. Any concerns that came up were handled in a timely manner. I believe our grandchildren would have preferred just to hang out at the house rather than go on our daily excursions to the attractions in San Diego.

Relaxing getaway close to the beach.

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week reuniting with family at this lovely home. It was large enough to accommodate our party and had plenty of kitchen supplies for us to prepare our own meals. It was nice to dine outside to see the ocean view and to feel the breeze each day. The best part was Kathy who was extremely easy to work with and quite responsive to all of our needs. We definitely hope to return again in the future!
