Keywords: Del Mar Racetrack, Secure WiFi, Del Mar Beach. Walk to the village of Rancho Santa Fe, retreat, healing,
We chose this as the most wonderful spot on the planet.
We value the rural nature of this area, it's accessibility to the beach, horse trails, polo fields, shopping, towns, and it's security.
Field to fork vegetable garden, rose garden and soon a family orchard.
Abby Imhoff purchased this estate in 2009
We chose this location because of it's rare beauty, it's privacy and it's security.
Walk to the village of Rancho Santa Fe where there are an abundance of excellent restaurants and grocery store. Walk to Thyme in the Ranch restaurant, coffee shop or a 5 Star restaurant.
We love being in the country, yet only minutes to shopping, the beach, Del Mar Horsepark, soccer/polo fields and the Del Mar Fairgrounds.
We are next to the entrance to walking trails that will enchant you.
Overall, we had a wonderful visit. The guesthouse was beautiful and the back patio area was private and a wonderful place to relax. We thought it was also an easy commute from the guesthouse to get to various beaches near San Diego and downtown San Diego. Abby checked that we arrived safely, and was prompt and helpful in answering questions.
A couple things we would suggest for improvement. 1) More outside lighting. We stayed during Christmas week, with short day-light hours and would have appreciated more lighting or functional lighting outside to take advantage of back patio area. 2) The guesthouse came equipped with outside gas heaters and fireplaces, but all gas tanks were empty and there was no firewood. We could have purchased these items ourselves, but would have much rather spent the time enjoying San Diego! 3) The sprinklers were left on during our stay, during a stormy/wet period in San Diego. This left the back patio area very wet in the morning. Again, these are just suggestions. We would stay again and recommend to others.
Great choice for a Rancho Santa Fe stay.
This is a beautifully cozy and balmy casita with decor of authentic luxury character that's nestled in the town of Rancho Santa Fe. It's walking distance to a charming town with our new favorite restaurant "Ponsaty's." We enjoyed quiet relaxing mornings by the pool with our morning coffee and exquisite sunsets by the pool with our evening wine. Our dog, Piper, loved her private backyard, strolls around the neighborhood and trips to Del Mar's dog beach. We'll definitely be back for another visit!
My husband and I were looking for a long weekend getaway that was romantic, quiet, peaceful, serene, clean, safe, nice views, and a short drive to the beach...the casita surpassed all of our expectations! The casita was tastefully decorated with relaxing colors. The queen bed had a memory foam mattress with linens that felt as if we were the first to use them. There is a large flat screen tv with hundreds of Directv channels to view. A mini fridge/freezer was big enough for a gallon of milk, coffee creamer, leftovers, and other beverages ;-) The bathroom was very nice with a beautifully tiled shower. Also, there is a large closet with ample room for storage (in our case, it was the perfect place for our little dachshund's crate). We had access to the entire resort-like backyard...we had such a nice time lounging by the pool, listening to the birds chirping and the wind blowing through the palm trees...we literally had to force ourselves to leave the casita to go site seeing! We enjoyed an afternoon at the Del Mar Race Track...though we know nothing about horse racing, it was a fun experience to witness the extraordinary abilities of those fine animals. We also drove to Torrey Pines Natural Preserve and enjoyed the great hike from the top of the cliff all the way down to the beach...I highly recommend this! The beaches were amazing...we walked on Solana Beach every morning enjoying a cup of coffee. We also took our small dachshund to the Del Mar Dog Beach...the waves here were perfect for our little dog to enjoy some ocean time without being swept away! And the beach was large enough that we could have our own space while the bigger dogs romped around in the waves further down. La Jolla beach was beautiful, but very crowded...I recommend getting here very early. We enjoyed our time at the casita and beaches so much that we only made it down to San Diego for one afternoon. I highly recommend Extraordinary Desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth! Abby was wonderful! She was very pleasant and quick to respond to the few questions we had. We have used HomeAway many times for our vacation rentals but staying at Abby's casita has definitely raised the bar for future vacations!!! We look forward to staying here again! Thank you, Abby!
Loved our stay...30th anniversary needing some good rest, relaxation and seclusion.
Beautiful little get away!
We loved our stay at the casita, it is a very sweet space.
It is very private, the bed was very comfortable, and the pool was a great addition. The only downside it is not set up well for cooking other than barbeque, so if you plan on doing a lot of cooking indoors this may not be the spot for you. There are a lot of great places to eat nearby however, and the outdoor cooking area is very nice.
Minutes to the fabulous Del Mar Racetrack, Polo Fields and amazing private horse trails and walking trails. Minutes to the beach.
