About the Property
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)
The townhouse is in a low density complex and is a quiet end-unit with no neighbors above or below. It's beautifully remodeled with a large, open kitchen with high-end appliances and granite counter tops that open to the dining room and living room areas - great for entertaining or hanging out with friends and family. Mission style furnishings, hardwood floors, and two fireplaces - one in the living room and one in the master bedroom - complete a high-end, but elegantly casual and relaxed feel.
The master suite has ocean and Torrey Pines Preserve views, a king size bed, a lounge area with couch, reading chair, LCD cable TV, fireplace and master bath that includes a whirlpool tub with views to the ocean (but still completely private). The guest bedroom has one queen and one twin and has its own full bath, as well as access and views to a beautiful patio. Stored in bedroom closets are portable sleeping mats that are great for 2 additional kids or adults. The private, attached 2 car garage eliminates street parking or dragging luggage or groceries through an underground parking garage. The complex includes 2 heated pools, 2 whirlpool spas, clubhouse and recreation room, tennis courts, a sand volleyball court, a tot lot, and a 5 acre park.
Included are all linens, bath towels, beach towels, shampoo, and hair dryers, as well as an array of beach toys, boogie boards, foam surfboards, beach chairs, and snorkeling equipment. There are new LCD TVs in the living room and each bedroom as well as a high speed wireless internet connection.
Del Mar is the best beach town around. We've lived or vacationed in beach towns from California to Florida, the Caribbean to Hawaii. Del Mar is easy to get to (24 min to San Diego's Lindbergh Field) with great beaches, fantastic restaurants and shopping, and a ton of things to do. For nature lovers, our place sits between the two components of Torrey Pines State Reserve. Hiking the ocean bluffs of Torrey Pines, you can see native wildflowers amid spectacular ocean views, including possible glimpses of dolphins, seals, migrating whales, and the most powerful waves in Southern California. Surfing, boogie boarding, body surfing or just hanging out at the beach are a short walk. Golfers can pick from dozens of world class courses and we are 15-25 minutes from Legoland, Sea World, and the world famous San Diego Zoo. Birch Aquarium at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography is 10 minutes away and the Del Mar Race Track and Fairgrounds is a 6 minute drive. La Jolla Cove beach is under 10 miles away.

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We met and were married in San Diego but have lived in the Chicago area since 1995 where we are raising our family. This townhouse is our getaway from Chicago winters and our chance to reconnect with the West Coast. Ultimately, we'll spend more time here, but with kids still in school, we're limited to Christmas and Spring breaks plus a few long weekends during the winter months (that'd be ~8 winter months in Chicago). That leaves it open for rental throughout the summer and for significant blocks during the winter.
Why the Owner Chose Del Mar Heights, San Diego, CA, USA:
We've tried beaches all over the world and keep coming back to Del Mar - there's natural beauty we don't find at beaches on the East Coast, not to mention far better surfing. Del Mar combines everything we love: great weather, perfect beaches, great restaurants, good surfing, and an endless variety of things to do. We've lived and vacationed from California to Florida, Hawaii to the Caribbean, and there's no place we'd rather be than Del Mar. We picked this specific unit after looking up and down the coast - this complex is far lower density than others, has a great floor plan and livable space, and has an open, uncrowded feel. While not directly on the beach, it has easier beach access than the high density complexes considered 'beach front' but with no way of getting down the bluff to the beach below. We can check the surf from the living room or master and sleep with the sound of waves crashing not far away.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Half a block to the entrance of Torrey Pines State Beach North Entrance and then a couple of hundred yards and you're on the beach. Six minutes by car to the Del Mar racetrack. Three minutes up the hill to the Torrey Pines Golf Course. This complex has much lower density than other condo complexes - there are no units above or below and we are an end unit. We also have a private 2 car garage rather than a large parking structure. When in Del Mar, we walk daily at Torrey Pines State Reserve and love the town of Del Mar - good shopping, great restaurants, and the best beaches. The beach is just a few minutes walk - easy for morning walks or surf sessions. For a guilty pleasure, the best fast food Mexican is 1 block away at Roberto's and for higher end eating, there are great choices in Del Mar just 4 minutes drive from our door. La Jolla is next door to Del Mar and offers fantastic high-end shopping, restaurants, and stunning scenery.
