This adorable beach apartment is the perfect location in Del Mar. Park your car and enjoy walking to the beach and all the fun in this seaside hideaway town. The first thing you will see when you make the turn on 7th St. is the ocean! It’s right there! This is a fabulous waterfront beach street!


The private entry path to your apartment is filled with vibrant flowers. You’ll enjoy lots of time in the private patio with a teak table and market umbrella. This is a peaceful spot to enjoy morning coffee and read the local news. It’s quiet here except for the sounds of birds and the waves breaking in the Pacific Ocean. Yes, you’re that close to the ocean! And, you’ll appreciate the rock wall outdoor shower after a day at the beach!


From the private patio, head downstairs through the double glass doors to this spacious 650 sq. foot 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath apartment. Once inside, you’ll know why so many guests call this apartment “adorable”. It’s designer decorated and very romantic!!

The living room has a fireplace and a comfy sofa which can be converted to a sofa sleeper for 2 additional guests. Yes, there’s Direct TV and, of course, encrypted WiFi!! The open kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to cook an easy dinner or blend a margarita.


Don’t like sleeping in small beds? This bedroom has a KING bed! And it’s a very comfy KING bed! The bathroom is also adorable with an extra large walk-in shower – big enough for 2!!


Beach towels, beach chairs,booge boards/surfboard, and a washer/dryer onsite.


Need something bigger than a 1BR? Another bedroom and bath can be added to the 1BR apartment. This 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds. The 2 bedroom, 2 bath option would be perfect for a small family. Check out the pictures and the rates for the optional 2nd bedroom.

Come to Del Mar and experience Southern California beach life at its best!!

Charming apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this property and it won't be our last. It's the perfect size for a couple and equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Property is within walking distance to the beach, park and restaurants. Mimi and Dennis are the perfect hosts - extremely helpful if needed, but respect your privacy. We can't wait to return!

Perfect little spot!

  • 5 of 5

Close to everything, steps to overlook the expansive ocean view. We brought our bikes and rode from the house every day. Awesome road riding straight from the house. Owners were very nice and helpful. We will be back

Perfect coastal unit in a central location to all the surrounding areas of San Diego.

  • 5 of 5

Unit was immaculate and had everything we needed. Property owners were super friendly and responsive to requests; it doesn’t get much better than this and you can’t beat its location in Del Mar.

Great, quiet Del Mar beach getaway.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time here and look forward to a third time next year. That should tell you everything you need to know. You get a great little basement apartment that is very private. Mimi and Dennis are great hosts --very friendly but not intrusive. They are available if you need them, but otherwise you don't hardly see or hear them. Their dog, Cassidy, is also very friendly. Access to the beach is easy if you use your car. Hiking directly from the end of 7th is possible, but strenuous. By car, the public beach parking is metered, but good if you get their fairly early. Del Mar race track is also quite accessible.

Beautiful and private

  • 5 of 5

Attached to a beautiful home and yet made very private, this place is a gem. Located right along Del Mar Beach, this little beach cottage has a full bedroom and bath, with a living space and kitchen that is perfect size. The owners were very friendly and the place was immaculate. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone, any couple, or if you have 4 in your party, there is an extra room you can add as well. Thank you Mimi and Dennis for offering this place to others and keeping the cost very reasonable. I will return!! I enjoyed it immensely!!!
