Just minutes from world-famous Torrey Pines Golf Course and nature preserve, this bright and airy, 2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom home will help make your vacation unforgettable.

For outdoor enthusiasts, you'll never have to get in your car to access the beach, unique walking trails, or the popular coastal cycling routes. If you're looking for a tranquil and fun-filled getaway, this is the perfect place. This relaxing and coastal casual townhouse is less than 80 yards from the entrance to the iconic Torrey Pines State Beach, and an easy walk to the lagoon, local restaurants and convenience store.

Situated in the beautifully landscaped Sea Point community with amenities galore, this complex includes, 2 pools, 2 jacuzzis, 2 tennis courts, sand volleyball court, a playground, clubhouse, recreation room and 5 acre private park. The private, attached, 2-car garage provides easy, direct access and lots of space, and eliminates the need for street parking.

It is a 2 level unit, has no neighbors above or below, a balcony off the living area perfect for people-watching, plus completely private, front and back patio areas. A/C, an open fully-equipped kitchen, dining area and living room make entertaining a breeze. The lounge area with couch includes a new Ultra-HD Smart TV and fast free Wi-Fi. Bedrooms include all new mattresses, 1 king, 2 twins (that can be put together to form a king upon request) and a twin day-bed with trundle, ideal for families. All linens, bath towels and beach towels are included, hair dryers and ironing board, etc. We provide you with plenty of beach toys, boogie boards, foam surfboard, beach chairs, rolling cooler, and games to help build fun memories of your time here.

We are less than 5 minutes from the Del Mar Race track, 10 minutes from beautiful La Jolla, and 30 to 40 minutes from downtown, Legoland, Sea World, and San Diego's world-famous Zoo and Wild Animal Park and less than 90 minutes from Disneyland. We love this special location for being so close to the ocean and the beauty you can find in sunset walks on the beach every evening.

About Matthew Semmer

The owner Barry came to San Diego in the 80's after many other cities, and lived up and down the coast in Ocean Beach, Pacific Beach and La Jolla, but chose the Del Mar Terraces for the natural scenery of the lagoon and Torrey Pines preserve, great open beach and friendly livable community. Work takes him to many cities in many countries, but none can compare to the combination of awesome weather, fantastic beaches, great surf, friendly community and green open space so close to San Diego city.

Matthew Semmer purchased this townhome in 1987

Why Matthew Semmer chose Del Mar Heights

Barry and his wife had so much fun as a family spending time here, even though they've moved, they're hoping others get to create the same memories they have from their time in Del Mar!

When their kids were little they would often walk the beach around sunset into Del Mar village, stay for ice-cream or dinner, and catch the bus back, as it stops at the beach, on North Torrey Pines road, less than 3 minutes walk from the front door. Their favorite restaurant, Roberto's, is also less than a 3 minute walk, with a fun casual patio overlooking the lagoon. Commuting to work or the airport is quick and easy as I-5 is only 1.2 miles to the east, or alternatively, the scenic route takes you past the world famous Torrey Pines Golf Course and beautiful La Jolla.

What makes this townhome unique

They loved being so close to the ocean and beach, for its combination of beauty, tranquility and fun. Barry and his wife brought those same elements into the decoration of our beach townhouse, giving it a bright, airy, refreshing feel that we think will make you feel relaxed and at home.

The lagoon with all its birds, frogs and fish add a nice natural element that you rarely find so close to a big city like San Diego.

The pools, jacuzzi's, tennis courts, private 5 acre park and other recreation options of Sea Point give you multiple options to add lots of fun memories to your relaxation.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the home for a week over spring break. The location was fantastic and within 20 minutes of everything we did. We were traveling with two teenagers, and the separate space was great. HOME was as pictured, and communication with Matt was fantastic. Would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful condo! Easy access to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful condo directly across the street and a short walk to the beach. Condo had everything we needed for our week stay. Great location in a wonderful beach town and also an easy 20-30 minute drive to the scenic points in San Diego. Matt was so helpful and thorough in explaining how everything worked at the condo and also in providing great recommendations in the area.

Great Place with Exceptional Manager!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for my daughter, my 2 year old granddaughter and myself as we awaited the arrival of my grandson. The private park was a hit for all of us. We very much appreciated the main living space being on the top floor right off the garage. The kitchen was well stocked and everything was in perfect working order. It was quiet and although not really near walking distance to shopping, it was an easy drive and never congested. Also, having the beach a1/4 mike away with breathtaking sunsets certainly helped us pass the time 😀?

Finally, having a manager like Matt who went above and beyond to make sure we were all comfortable added to our trip. He had a Christmas tree waiting for us (very appreciated with a 2 year old a week before Christmas) and then Santa magically left a gift for her too❤️

I would not hesitate to recommend the property to anyone looking for a perfect beach getaway with all the comforts of home included!
