About Lynda Lindsay

We fell in love with Del Mar and the quintessential beach village - being able to walk to shops, restaurants and the beach was key. We golf, hike, read and wander down to the beach to watch the surfers and the amazing sunsets. It's perfect.

Lynda Lindsay purchased this house in 2012

Why Lynda Lindsay chose San Diego County

It was the perfect beach bungalow - charming, bright and in a lovely, safe, treed neighbourhood, impeccably maintained with a lush, private rear garden

What makes this house unique

We wanted a cottage up the hill from the village of Olde Del Mar, close enough to walk to the restaurants, shops and the beach, but private and peaceful

Guestbook comments from the owner

A real gem! Love your house in Del Mar. It was perfect for us. Private garden, parking and a nice walk into the village and the beach. Especially liked happy hour at Pacifica and Sbicca's, and the shrimp tacos at En Fuego. We'll be back!

Del Mar Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I celebrated our 60th birthday at this wonderful cottage. We were thrilled beyond words. The cottage was comfortable, beautiful and perfect in every way. The gorgeous private backyard served as the perfect place to linger over morning coffee and later enjoy lunch. The cottage is situated in one of the most beautiful old neighborhoods filled with gorgeous old trees and uniquely constructed homes. Many of the homes held historic value as they were once owned by celebrates dating back several decades. The village was a picturesque 10 minute walk away and filled with treasures. There were amazing affordable restaurants with gorgeous views of the ocean, lots of intimate shops to browse through, filled with friendly folks. The ocean with its endless sandy beach was a across the street from the village. You could spend hours watching the waves or surfers, walking the beach, or participating in so many other activities. Grocery shopping was fun, creative and affordable at the nearby Sprouts grocery store. We drove the ocean highway to other beach villages which all had their charm. This highway has to be one of the most picturesque highways in the world. Del Mar is also easy access to downtown San Diego by highway or train. We were able to take in many San Diego sites as the areas are very close to each other. Be sure to check out the many happy hour specials in one of the numerous restaurants for an amazing deal on food and beverage. It won't be hard to pick out one with an amazing view of the sunset over the ocean. My friends and I have created precious memories that will last a lifetime. Many thanks to the owners who obviously love and cherish their Del Mar home. They created an environment that was welcoming and warm. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone of any age. Mary

Beautiful Home Minutes from the Ocean!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing one-week stay at this beautiful Del Mar cottage located just 10 minutes from the beach! The view of the ocean from the dining room table makes you never want to leave! The bright, sunny cottage is a short trip to many delicious restaurants, cafes and boutique grocery stores. The beach at Del Mar is the perfect place for long walks on the sand, or if you prefer, just put your feet up in the backyard garden patio! The cottage itself is decorated with beautiful and personal touches, making this feel like a home away from home!

Perfect Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were in San Diego for two months on work and this little cottage proved to be the absolute best beach vacation spot. The cottage is located up on the hillside of Del Mar village which makes the neighborhood very private, secluded and quiet. At the same time, the cottage is a 10 minute walk to all the shops, bars and restaurants of Del Mar, and most importantly, it is also a 10 minute walk to the lovely beaches of Del Mar. The home itself provides everything you would need and the backyard is a wonderful setting for grilling out or relaxing. Lynda is also great to work with and was extremely responsive to any questions we had throughout our stay. The home and the surrounding area of Del Mar are absolutely idyllic and the owners were wonderful to deal with.

Outstanding Cottage in Sunny Del Mar

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful visit to Del Mar in sunny Southern California. Our accommodation was spectacular...a 10 minute walk to the beach and the quaint hamlet of Del Mar, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The location was bright and sunny. The garden room made for a beautiful outdoor setting to read and enjoy our coffee in the mornings and dinner in the evenings. The blooming Wisteria created a particularly dramatic backdrop!

Highly recommended!!!
