About Kathy

I am a San Diego Realtor, I have managed my own properties for over 30 years. My husband Jim and I built and designed this home as our dream home 22 years ago. We raised our daughter in Del Mar and now she is a teacher at a charter school, she has her masters degree in administration. We love Del Mar and the San Diego area for its great schools, climate, beachs, entertainment, restaurants, quality of life and all that the area has to offer.

Kathy purchased this house in 1990

Why Kathy chose Del Mar Heights

Our vacation home is easy access from freeeway 5 and approximately 20-30 minutes from the airport yet we feel like we are away from it all in our own little world with the surrounding beauty of the ocean, nature and sandstone cliffs. We are a straight drive down the freeway 5 to sea world ,old town and downtown san diego.

What makes this house unique

We are walking distance to the beach, and great local restaurants along Carmel Valley Road. The back of the home abuts an open space nature reserve. We also enjoy the Lagoon view, Torrey Pine Trees, and the beautiful sunsets when they occur. Watching a sail boat sail on the ocean or a wind surfer, or a ship out at sea from the great room or decks is one of the many thrills to enjoy in this home.

Family Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Clean, beautiful, amazing! This home was absolutely perfect for our family get together, consisting of 5 adults and 7 children ranging in ages from 3-10! Spacious and everyone had their own space for sleeping or getting away from it all. Several patios on each of the floors to enjoy the cool temperatures and relax! Spacious kitchen with and island and everything you need to cook your own meals. We ate ALL our meals here at the house although there were some pretty tempting-looking restaurants nearby! We could not have found a more perfect accommodation for our family to get together! Thank you Kathy!

It was fantastic - perfect for a large group

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful place for a large group to gather - we had young children, teenagers , parents of these children as well as two grandparents - so quite a diverse group.

It worked for all as there was plenty of space to enjoy being together as well as areas for quiet time.

The location was fabulous as well - near enough to San Diego to enjoy the attractions while also enjoying the local beach.

Thank you Kathy for letting us enjoy your home.

Wish we could have stayed longer

Breeders Cup Stay

It was a great location with stunning views of the ocean. The downtown area of Del Mar was just a short drive away as was the racetrack.we would definitely stay here again.
