Ocean Views and Walk to Torrey Pines Beach

Bedrooms 2
Half Baths1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

You can have it all and you don't need to decide until you get there--you can sit around the unit or community and read in peace or enjoy the pools. You can walk to the beach and closest restaurants, or you have easy car access to all attractions from San Diego and Coronado to Orange County and Disneyland. We have also added AC in 2016.

At the unit, enjoy the ocean, Torrey Pines cliffs, La Jolla, and reserve views from the balcony. High top table and bar stools are provided on the balcony for sunset viewing, or read on the balcony in an armchair overlooking peaceful walkway gardens. All community facilities are available to you, including two swimming pools/hot tubs (one very close to the unit), 4 tennis courts, children's playground and walking area.

If you venture off the property on foot, Torrey Pines State Beach is a 5 minute walk, across one road and through the beach parking lot. Or you can walk to about half a dozen of the closest restaurants (Italian, Mexican, Chinese, Japanese). The main Del Mar shopping and restaurant area is a short 5 minute car ride away.

Or you can be on I-5 in minutes with easy access to all attractions from San Diego to Orange County. San Diego airport, city, SeaWorld and Zoo are about 20-25 minutes away. La Jolla is a 10 minute ride.

The unit is ideal for a couple (full master bedroom, queen bed, and en suite bathroom). The second bedroom also contains a queen bed, so is best suited for another couple, or 2 small children or one older child. The upstairs living/dining area is open to a galley kitchen that is fully equipped and has a full range of relatively new stainless steel appliances. Direct access to an internal 2-car garage is through a rear kitchen door, and there is a gas grill on the rear patio off the kitchen.

About The Owner

The owners are a couple who live on the East Coast but travel to San Diego frequently to be with friends there, and are originally from New Zealand. We love being near the ocean, especially the Pacific, and enjoy travel. We think San Diego is one the best cities in the States, and thoroughly enjoy our own time in this unit, and the surrounding area. Del Mar is a great, convenient location in Southern California!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Del Mar Heights

This unit was purchased because of the Del Mar location, ocean view, and the quality of the community it is in.

What makes this condo unique

Staying in the unit, we enjoy the peace and quiet right around the unit, and sitting on the balcony with a view over the Torrey Pines cliffs, the breaking surf, and La Jolla in the distance. Being able to easily walk out to the beach and a selection of restaurants without getting in a car is also a nice advantage.

Good times at the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year for this townhouse. We love the unit, it is clean and nicely decorated. The location is excellent, close to the bach and Torrey Pines trails. We had the best time with family in the Del Mar area. We will probably make it an annual trip. Really love this place.

Beach & Hiking Trails Within Walking Distance

  • 5 of 5

Bright, airy, clean and spacious beach themed home within walking distance to Torrey Pines beach and hiking trails. Pictures were spot on of furnishings and view from the balcony. Owner thought of everything you might need during your stay. Having a gas grill and attached garage were a welcome treat! We had a very relaxing & comfortable stay. Very user friendly kitchen and grocery store not far away. Enjoyed the sunsets and cool ocean breezes. Located just 20 minutes north of the San Diego airport. Look forward to returning soon!

Visitor from UK

  • 5 of 5

We found the condo clean and well appointed, and contained everything promised in the description. The agent was particularly helpful to two strangers from overseas. The location was ideal for two golf enthusiasts, with golf courses close by and the Torrey Pines Tournament just a mile or two up the road! In fact the location is ideal for golfers, walkers, surfers and families seeking amusements and attractions to visit. There are plenty of trails to explore, really good walks. We particularly enjoyed visiting Borrego Springs and the Anza-Borrego Dessert. There are numerous good restraunts within easy walking distance of the condo. Our favourite was the Italian, where we enjoyed many good meals.

I would recommend this rental to a friend.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this rental for just under 2 weeks. The house was well equipped and it felt more like we were staying at a friend’s house than a rental. We felt the proximity to Torrey Pines State Park with great walking paths and perfect running on the beach was idyllic.

Lovely Condo near Torrey Pines Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this charming and well-furnished unit. The kitchen is modern, the living room nicely furnished and comfortable, and the location within walking distance to Torrey Pines Beach was wonderful. The condo is even better in person than reflected in the photos, and was very clean and well-maintained. The common area pools and hot tubs were also beautifully maintained and close to walk in just a few minutes. We plan to return for another visit.
