Recent Del Mar reviews

  • Great spot!

    "We just returned from a week-long stay at this home, and had a great time. The location is wonderful, as described. We are an active family with young kids and enjoyed running or driving just up the road to the Torrey Pines beach, which is beautiful. It's very close to the town of Del Mar, where we enjoyed the restaurants, park, and beach. It's also close enough to the highway for other outings (we visited Legoland, Sea World, and Cabrillo National Monument). The house itself had everything we needed as a family of 5--it was clean and had all of the supplies/dishes/appliances we would expect. The roof deck was a nice place to sit and enjoy the view of the lagoon, Torrey Pines, and the sunset. As an unexpected bonus probably only relevant to families with very young kids, our three year old daughter was absolutely delighted to open a closet door and find a dollhouse! Overall, we had a great vacation and will stay here again if our travels bring us back to San Diego."

  • Fantastic Base for a San Diego County Vacation

    "We have used HomeAway for many years and this is one of the best homes we have rented and certainly the best in the SD area. We look for three thing when renting, and this property has it all 1) The House This is the owners holiday home and quite honestly the pics and description do not do it justice. It is properly air conditioned which is unusual for the area and is fully equipped with everything you need, including a laptop with printer! Plenty of space for a large family to relax and socialise, the highlight is the tropical back garden and pool. It is large and completely secluded, getting the sun all day and the pool is lovely and warm with the solar heating. Overall, a really homely home from home! 2) Location We know San Diego well and this is the perfect base for a vacation covering all of the county. Close to I5 and route R6 but no traffic noise whatsoever, it is situated in a very nice area within 3 mins of Piazza Carmel with a Vons, gas station and nice restaurants. Actually quicker to get into SD than when we stayed in La Jolla but being next to Del Mar, great for the northern beaches, travelling to LA, Disney and Legoland 3) Hassle Free Cannot stress how easy the whole process was and booking direct with the owner via HomeAway took a lot of the risk out of the equation. One small issue we had with the house was dealt with very swiftly by the owner which gave us great peace of mind. Overall, very highly recommended vacation property that was a big part of a great holiday for us!"

  • Great location and a very good price!

    "This little studio is in the perfect location in Del Mar. It is just a short walk (a block and a half) to the beach, maybe 3-4 short blocks to Jake's (one of the great restaurants in Del Mar) and then just a little further to the Del Mar square which has many restaurants and cute shops. The studio is sufficiently equipment (minus the basics condiments that you might normally expect to find in a private type rental) but that was not a problem for me. Two special notes: There are other comments about the train going by at night. There is a commuter train that goes by and it is very close (physically) to the back of the studio. It absolutely did not bother me though. The other note--the studio does not have air conditioning. I arrived on 5/1 and it was unusually hot in Del Mar that day (90-ish). Given that the studio is upstairs with a wall of windows facing the west, it was quite hot. The owner was very kind and quickly purchased and delivered a portable fan. That was sufficient to get me through that day and then the heat was not a problem the rest of my trip. I would stay here again as long as the temps are expected to be below 90. The location and the price make this place!"
