Reviews: Brooklynn said...I am in LOVE with the HOME and LOCATION!

Sunny said...Outstanding accommodations in Del Mar. My husband and I were fortunate to be able to rent this magical Del Mar cottage over several summers while he served as the Executive Director of the California Thoroughbred Trainers Association. It is well located being close to the beaches, racetrack, restaurants and shopping. Morning beach walks. Plenty of room for our daughters to come stay and join us. Good times. Wonderful memories.

Close to Beach, Parks with playgrounds, nature centers, zoo and aquarium. Fun for everyone!

Why Abby Imhoff chose Del Mar

It has always been our dream to live in Olde Del Mar and in 1995 it came true. Since then we have restored this classic beach cottage with the highest quality and care.

Great House in Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were in town to visit other family members who live in the Del Mar area of San Diego and we had a lovely weekend at Abby's beautiful house! The 4 bedroom 2.5 bath was the perfect size for our bigger group and there was plenty of common room space for everyone to gather for family dinners and to relax. The furnishings were nice and in good condition and Abby even greated us with a bottle of wine and a nice welcome note upon our arrival! Abby was easy to reach for instructions for check in and check out. The location is great--a quick drive down to the Del Mar Plaza with many good shops and restaurants and very close to Del Mar beach access. I would highly recommend staying at Abby's place to any other families looking for a quiet spot to relax yet also looking to be close to fun things to do in the area! Thanks Abby!

High quality, and beautifully decorated cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family gathering at this place. It is very comfortable and high quality cottage. It was thoughtfully stocked with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We had two small dogs and a baby and four adults. All had enough space to enjoy . The beach and grocery is very close by and that was ery convenient.

Abby was very thoughtful and available for anything and she let us check in several hours early so the baby could nap👶👶

Perfect for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is so spacious and the location was great. We stayed here for a week with three generations (7 people total) and we were so comfortable. We enjoyed meals on the patios, used the grill and loved the kitchen and open floor plan. I loved being able to enjoy my family while cooking and enjoying lots of fresh, cool air. Very comfortable and very beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our vacation in this beautiful roomy cottage. The home was very warm and well stocked with the necessities we needed. The location was close and convienent to the beach and the highway. We would definitely go back again for our family vacation. The landlord was very easy to work with and very accommodating.
