About Justin

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 Justin 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 place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

loved the cottage & the beautiful view of the ocean along with the location, couldn't"t have been better! only complaint would be the furniture wasn't too comfortable in the living room & patio. Needs to be updated a bit. The owner was staying next door & it was a pleasure

meeting Justin, Very nice guy. !We look forward to a return visit

We had ant and centipede issues the entire time. Yard is too full of potted plants, also made parking in front difficult. House is cute and well maintained.

Owner's Response: Very sorry to hear there were some ants bothering you. At your request, I had our maintenance man clean the inside area and spray some natural defense around the perimeter of the house, and that seemed to solve the problem. September is the driest time of the year in Del mar and we do get ants moving around that time of year. Safe travels!

Great Location!!!

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful property for a small group. There were three us in the party for this long weekend get away. The accommodations were just right and the location was perfect for exploring Del Mar. Camino Del Mar is just a short walk down the hill, which was nice for all our dinning pleasures. Del Mar race track is 5 minutes away by car and I-5 is easily accessible for all your excursions around the area. What was really nice was the booking and arrive were super easy. I would definitely stay here again!
