About Lynda Lindsay

We fell in love with Del Mar and the quintessential beach village - being able to walk to shops, restaurants and the beach was important to us. We golf, hike, read and wander down to the beach to watch the surfers and the amazing sunsets. It's perfect!

Lynda Lindsay purchased this house in 2012

Why Lynda Lindsay chose Del Mar

It was the perfect beach bungalow - charming, bright and impeccably maintained, and located up the hill from the village in a lovely, private neighbourhood.

What makes this house unique

We wanted a cottage in the hills of Olde Del Mar, close enough to walk to the restaurants, shops and the beach, but private, safe and peaceful.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A real gem! Love your house in Del Mar. It was perfect for us. Private garden, parking and a nice walk into the village and the beach. Especially liked happy hour at Pacifica and Sbicca's, and the shrimp tacos at En Fuego. We'll be back!

A delightful cottage with beautiful back yard.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our month's stay at the cottage. The college age grandchildren either ran or walked back and forth from town, the beach was easily accessible too. Everything was spotless inside, the backyard was perfect for entertaining. I would definitely rent it again for another 4 weeks next year!

Del Mar Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Three gals from Toronto just stayed there in March 2017 & we loved it.

Great layout and easy walk to downtown Del Mar. The backyard was just starting to bloom! (missed all the wisteria) We hang out in the backyard...very nice. All necessities were present. House is very well appointed with patio walk out doors to the backyard and very comfortable beds. Would highly recommend it....Carla

Dreamy and delightful - perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

This cottage exceeded my expectations and was the best vrbo I have ever stayed in. Cosy but spacious, elegant but relaxed, quiet but completely accessible. Not only was it well appointed, it was impeccably clean and fresh. The beach was a short walk away, with wonderful restaurants and excellent shopping close by with boutiques you could browse in forever. The hosts of this owner operated location are A1: attentive, accommodating and very pleasant to deal with. I would heartily recommend this as a wonderful place to tuck in, and enjoy all that Del Mar has to offer. It's hard to leave this paradise.

Wonderful house in Del Mar

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas at this wonderful house nestled up the hill in "Old Del Mar". Plenty of space for all of us. Incredibly quiet and peaceful. Great new kitchen and baths. Completely sunlit too. We had cold weather so we didn't have a chance to enjoy the outdoor space which look d wonderful. Very private and great for a vacation while having the easy and full access to all of Del Mar. easy to walk to town and beach. Can't wait to come back.
