Why WILL Schiefer chose Del Mar

This area is on the bluff top above a very nice uncrowded beach.

Sunsets, relaxation, and large koi pond garden

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our week long winter visit to Will's house. The house is just a few minutes walk to the bluffs over looking the ocean, with steep paths down to the beach. The house is about 15 minute walk to the heart of Del Mar. House is in a quiet neighborhood with plenty of street parking (one parking spot at the house). Sunsets were great from the the second story patio, living room, and kitchen. The house has 3 bedrooms: 2 bedrooms have an en suite bathroom, and third bedroom is a few feet away from third bathroom. Highlight of the property is the large outdoor garden/koi ponds and kitchen. There are TV's in every room including outside so you never will miss a second of a ballgame or horse race. Plenty of palm trees to provide shade. My young daughter loved exploring the outdoor space. The house has a few quirks (the downstairs master bathroom is also a steam room) but that is expected from a custom built house. Overall, great house and location to spend a week and recommend the house. Look forward to visiting again.

Great Space for entertaining.

  • 5 of 5

If you like to cook (I do), you will love the outdoor kitchen and grill. Top notch appliances in a beautiful oasis complete with Koi ponds and palms. The sunset views from the upstairs deck are amazing as is the living room and indoor kitchen. The bedrooms are comfortable and clean. Two reef breaks at the end of the street for surf. A bit difficult to get down the bluff with a surf board, easier coming back up... Wills house is a life's work, lots of character and charm. You can tell a lot of thought goes into his decor and garden. The street is very quiet and the neighbors are friendly. Good vibes.

Beautiful property. Loved our stay here

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and loved the house. We enjoyed the quiet of the neighborhood. I was a great place to hang out and relax yet had good access to all the Sand Diego has to offer. We miss Ti, the house cat and enjoyed his company.

Interesting house. Close to beach but difficult to walk directly there if you have young jids.

  • 4 of 5

House is clean. Patio is great. Surrounding area is noisy as you are on the corner of a busy street. House comes with a cat. Great views! We drove to beach as walking involves a narrow trail on steep cliff.

Gorgeous and unique home!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. The patio was our favorite place to spend time, with the beautiful koi ponds and outdoor kitchen. We were very comfortable and Will was very accommodating. We walked to everything: the beach, the shops, the cafes. Thanks for a great stay!
