Our Home at the Beach

Bedrooms 2
Space 900 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 - 5 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Start your day enjoying a view of the ocean with a cup of coffee, maybe dolphins, maybe whales, maybe pelicans.

Only steps from the bluff you can enjoy a day at the beach and easily come home for lunch. Torrey Pines State Reserve and the Torrey Pines Annex are just a few minutes walk. Miles of trails are available by bike, as is the entire coastline, a very popular weekend ride.

It's an easy stroll to Del Mar Village and world class dining as well as casual coffee. It's so much fun to enjoy a beverage and the sunset at the Del Mar Plaza, if for some reason one is bored with the perfect view from the front porch.

Whether you want a challenging hike through the Torrey Pines Reserve or a day on the chaise lounge, roll out of bed on 7th Street and you are there. Fall asleep to the sound of the surf.

Our home has been in the family for 47 years and it's comfortable. My brother's house adjoins the property and can also be rented on VRBO #313025 if you have a larger group.

About Carol

My Mom bought this property in 1969. I lived here for a while in my 20's, then inherited the property when she passed in 2002. It has lots of good times and good memories attached to it.

Carol purchased this house in 1969

Why Carol chose San Diego County

We are 4th generation San Diegans and we love our town.

What makes this house unique

We swim, bathe in the sun, walk to Torrey Pines, dance Zumba when we can, entertain friends by the fire inside and out, watch the sunset.

Beautiful home and location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful stress free week here. We enjoyed a dinner in the backyard and also drinks and

munchies on the front patio as we watched the sunset. It was close to downtown, restaurants,and for us

the racetrack. The home itself was clean, cozy and in a lovely neighborhood.

Excellent Experience / Exactly what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We have nothing but good things to say about this house and its owners. Since this was the first time using a VRBO home, we were a bit nervous about how the process worked. All we can say is that Carol and Ron were great to work with. We spent about a week in this home with absolutely no problems. The house was a very nice home one block from the coast in a very nice/quiet neighborhood. We can't wait to come back next year!

Lovely home by the beach

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely vacation we had by the beach! I, my husband and two sons spent five days here, and we all loved the home, the patio, the beaches, the sunsets. Fully stocked kitchen made meals easy. And when we chose to eat out, we found a variety of restaurants to suit our tastes. We were very comfortable, found everything we needed and were able to reach the owner by phone when we had any questions. I would like to visit this clean, cozy home again, and would definitely recommend it to family and friends visiting the area.

Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I spent four nights at this home and had an awesome time. The house was very clean and had abundant furnishings and supplies. We took advantage of the quick walk to the ocean on many occasions. I would strongly recommend anyone to stay here instead of considering a hotel.

Cozy little beach house with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week at this home in beautiful Del Mar. It was all we expected it to be and more. The house was comfortably furnished and landscaped with a lovely back patio for grilling and hanging out and a table at the front of the property where we sat and enjoyed the sunset every night. Bonus: the fruit trees were plentiful and we made fresh, delicious homemade lemonade!

The kitchen was well furnished and we were able to bake and cook our favorite foods! There are plenty of linens and towels. We especially enjoyed the sky roof over the jacuzzi tub!

The home is an easy walk to Powerhouse Park and the restaurants and shops on Camino Del Mar as well as a short drive to Torrey Pines National Seashore and Del Mar Race Track.

Thank you Carol for sharing your home and we would rent it again in a heartbeat!!!

A cozy hideaway with ambiance, personality, and convenience!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and myself spent seven days at this property and we give the owner Carol and the property the highest praise. Our expectations were fully realized starting on our arrival. You will first notice the 75 foot walk to the most gorgeous view of the Del Mar coast and the smell of the sea. We could not wait to jump out of the car and get down to the shore. We live in snow country and we had been anticipating this vacation for months. The second thrill was the exceptional taste of the owners in the decorating and the cleanliness of the home. You never know what you will find in an older home yet we were pleasantly surprised at the efforts the homeowners took to assure their guests of every convenience down to the plentiful linens, assorted towels, comfortable beds, board games, beach chairs, boogie boards, exceptional library, fully stocked kitchen, barbecue, and fresh fruit and tomatoes growing in the back patio! A special treat was how quiet the neighborhood is and neighbors wave to you as you commence your walks! The short drive to restaurants, Von's grocery, and CVS pharmacy were a real plus. We discovered the Poseidon restaurant on the Del Mar Beach and watched the surfers while sipping a cocktail. Carol was so very helpful at every stage and returned your phone calls and inquiries promptly. Look into this amazing home and you will not be disappointed! Margaret Bruner
