About David Nash

I am a Geologist and my wife is a LCSW. We love the ocean, to hike in Torrey Pines Nature Preserve, and take long beach walks - all from this great rental property!

Why David Nash chose Del Mar

Del Mar is beautiful, with a vibrant nightlife, horse racing, and great beaches. We enjoy walking to the Plaza, beach, and horse races at the track. Over 30 bars and restaurants within walking distance. Escape the bustle of downtown to this very quiet neighborhood with lots of parking and ocean breezes and views.

Enjoy the quaint village, and then retreat to our quiet, peaceful hillside escape. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves.

What makes this house unique

Our house is located within walking distance of downtown Del Mar, all the shops and restaurants, and great beaches for surfing or swimming. It has beautiful ocean views and is in a very quiet neighborhood with lots of parking.

Great location and very well kept.

  • 5 of 5

The "Tree House" is in a very nice neighborhood, 15 minute walk to the Del Mar restaurants and beach, and a short drive to San Diego.

The accommodation were nice, as well. Modern and functional kitchen, big flat screen TV to watch he NCAA basketball tourney, large master bed and a great shower w/ unlimited hot water!

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time at this location. It was perfect for the two of us. The only thing to look out for is the $100 cleaning fee that was not disclosed until after the booking. Also, the drive up the hill is a little steep; however, it makes for a beautiful view. We would definitely come back.

Great and comfy for two especially

  • 5 of 5

Loved this spot, very nicely remodeled and updated. It is high on the hill over Del Mar with ocean views. I hiked the canyon behind this neighborhood, and that would be a bonus for trail runners and walkers.

If you had kids it could be a good place for up to four, but I think that would be pushing it in my opinion if you tried the same with adults. The owners share a wall, but it was completely unnoticeable for us during our stay. We will try and stay here again in the future, as we often visit family in the area.

Cute beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable beach cottage worked well for family members visiting at the holidays. 15 min walk to the beach. Lovely, small garden and patio areas. Best for up to three people; fourth would need to sleep on blow-up mattress. Plenty of on-street parking in front of property.

Dallas, p

California style

  • 5 of 5

I visited this rental for three nights in November 2017. It worked out perfectly for me, and I have nothing but praise for this listing. The place was very private, even though the owner happened to be occupying the larger home right next door. This unit had everything that I needed, and even though I did not do any cooking here, the kitchen was well appointed just in case I decided to eat in. I think the most remarkable attribute was the neighborhood in which the house was located. It was a fascinating walk into town and back (close to a mile each way, depending upon your destination) and I made the trip several times during my stay. The house is situated on a hillside, so the return trip was uphill, but it was still worth the effort. The town of Del Mar is quite unique, and is certainly on my list for a return visit.

Thanks again to Justin and family for the opportunity!
