About the Property
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)
This is not just any vacation rental. This Del Mar Dream is our second home and a place that we love and visit frequently. We purchased our condo in Aug.'02. After years of searching for just the right beach place, we found it! Steps to the beach in the Del Mar beach colony! (Please see the photo of our actual proximity to the beach-in one photo frame!). We never thought we would accomplish that, thus the name, 'Our Del Mar Dream'. The condo was completely remodeled when we purchased it and we continue to refresh and redo. Recently, we got all new bedroom furniture for the master suite including a king sized bed and higher end bedding (we will post new photos soon). We have also just purchased a new and nicer washer and dryer set.
We have a nice sized master en suite with a Cal King bed. The second bedroom has 2 full sized beds. There is a queen sofa sleeper in the front room. We also provide 2 high quality sleep mats that fit well in the master or in the family room and a port-a-crib, if needed.
Each of the two bathrooms has newer granite composite solid surface counters and two sinks. There is also a separate vainity area in the master bedroom allowing 5 people to be getting ready to go out at one time. There are two showers, plus the second bathroom has an integrated tub.
We have our own laundry room in the condo plus a common laundry room downstairs in the complex.
Our condo is 1150 square feet and on the second floor of a small, 16 unit, three floor complex. We are the southern most end unit so no neighbors on the south side. We are right next to the stair well and also not far from the elevator.
There is a common use veranda out front and a private balcony off the master bedroom with views of Del Mar heights.
We provide one covered assigned parking spot, beach toys and accessories, and towels and linens, including beach towels.
There is also a shower down stairs by the elevator entrance to rinse the sand off before reentering the condo after a day at the beach.
We were both raised in Southern California and know the beaches here well. Del Mar is our 'hands down' favorite! It is a relatively small beach community nestled between the bluffs of La Jolla to the south and Solana Beach to the north. Del Mar has a quaint 'village' feel, with a gorgeous beach, top notch restaurants and shops, and, of course, the Del Mar Race Track/Fair Grounds. Plus, we are 20 minutes to downtown San Diego with all the activities there. We are about 20 minutes to Legoland and about an hour or so to Disneyland.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

About the owner: We have three children and live about an hour from Del Mar. Although we are not too far away, we feel 'miles away' from home when we are there in Del Mar. It is truly a special place! We love sharing our beach home with people who share our love for Del Mar or who want to discover what makes our beach special among the Southern California beach communities.
Why the Owner Chose Del Mar, CA, USA:
Our condo complex is nestled in the Del Mar beach colony among mostly multimillion dollar single family homes. There are not many smaller, more affordable places to rent. Of the other rental properties similar to ours, they cannot beat our location. We are close to the beach with a stop sign and cross walk out in front of the complex and a flat walk to the beach-no bluff, no hills. We are in a quiet slower part of the colony and farther from the train tracks than others. We are walking distance to the Del Mar village, the Del Mar Fair Grounds, and close to the Cedros Design area, and the new ecological walking trails.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
An important feature we love about the beaches of Del Mar is the way the waves break. Our beach is flat making the break with larger waves out further and smaller waves closer to the beach. This is a great feature for families with smaller children or for those who are less experienced swimming in the Pacific waves. Our beaches are also sandy with many less rocks than, say, Carlsbad to our north.
