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 Del Mar

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.

Close to the Shore. Just what we were looking for...

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location in Del Mar for the 3 of us that had everything we needed as a base to go and explore southern CA coast. This place had it all in terms of full kitchen, washer/dryer, plus simple other extras like a cooler, boogie boards, etc.

Would absolutely stay here again.

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.
