Property type house


About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath close to Del Mar Hose Races

Our home has been fully remodeled. It is best used by a couple who want to accommodate a guest or a couple in the den/TV room for a visit. It features a spacious kitchen with open design that is fantastic for entertaining. The living room has two very large doors that roll open to allow for ocean breezes and easy access to the patio areas. The house is perched up high that gives the feeling almost of living in a tree house. The master bedroom has a king size bed with french doors to the patio. It has a private bathroom with spacious bathtub and shower. The second bedroom has a fold out queen size sofa bed that is very comfortable. Each of the bedrooms has a cable connected TV. The house is wired to enjoy music throughout. There is an office space and a fireplace in the house. The outside patio areas are well shaded by mature Torrey Pine trees and the landscaping allows for peaceful lounging. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet. The house has washer & dryer for your use.

This house is only 2 miles from the Del Mar Horseraces that are a must do in San Diego every summer. It is also close to Legoland, Sea World, the World Famous San Diego Zoo as well as the Safari Park. The beach is amazing and walking distance from the house. The Del Mar Village area has wonderful restaurants, bars, shops, spas & a farmers market on Saturdays. Torrey Pines state park and golf course are only about 3 miles away and available to the public.

The house is appropriate for a child not yet walking or over 12. Not really kid friendly house.

We're sure you will enjoy your Del Mar experience just as much as our family has for over 50 years.

About Marla G Painter

This home has been in the family for over 50 years. We've seen Del Mar go from a sleepy little town on the outskirts of San Diego to the fantastic place it is now. This is a new listing to VRBO, but the house has been rented in the past seasonally. We have family just down the road available should anything come up during your stay that needs attention.

Marla G Painter purchased this house in 1959

Why Marla G Painter chose San Diego County

Location, Location, Location can only be topped by view, view, view. This house has both. It is walking distance to everything you need in Del Mar including, shops, restaurants, beach & races (if you want a little exercise).

What makes this house unique

The ability to enterain / host your friends while wowing them with amazing ocean views. You get privacy at this house from your neighbors in a quiet neighborhood. The house has everything you need from towels to dishes & bottle openers. The landscaping is mature and well maintained. Again, did I mention the views?

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

I rented this for a gathering after a funeral ceremony. I wanted a peaceful, retreat like home that would be cozy and welcoming in such a difficult time. Marla was very accommodating and the guests felt very at home and comforted by it. Thank you Marla!

Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5

Wow, where to start??! This home is excellent! We needed a home in Del Mar (my sister lives there) and we were so lucky to find this home after a cancellation. The location is perfect. It's in a seculed neighborhood in the Del Mar hills with ocean views and walking distance to the beach. It took about 20 minutes to walk to the beach (we had a stroller and had to use the beach access off 15th street) but beware the walk back up the hill from the beach was a little rough lol! The walk takes you through Del Mar which has lots of shops and restaurants. We even did a 2-mile (each way) walk to Vons one morning for breakfast supplies and it was not hard at all.

The windows of this house I would say are the best feature. You can see the ocean from just about any area in the house. Being able to open the window wall and let the ocean breeze in was just so amazing. The garden area had so many wonderful seating areas and a big table for al fresco dining. We loved the fire pit and made good use of the grill.

We spent Fourth of July here and were able to see fireworks off in the distance. It was a perfect holiday.

The home is also equipped with every item you could ever need. From tons of serving platters, knives, cutting boards, pots/pans, gadgets and gizmos, seasoning, placemats, I mean this place had it all! Lots of towels were available and even beach supplies!

Four of us stayed in the home and it was the perfect size. Everyone was incredibly impressed with this home. We hope we get to come back soon!

Beautiful Home Close To The Beach

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a fantastic house! We spent 11 days here in Feb 2015. The ocean and sunset views are incredible. The house is very private and outfitted with everything you would need including a great wifi connection. Also, the neighborhood itself is quite beautiful, and it is an easy 10 minute walk to the beach and restaurants. Finally, Marla was a great host and very easy to work with. We definitely plan on returning.

Our Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutley wonderful! Plenty of room for four to sleep or more just for entertaining! The home has everything you need, just bring your bathing suit! The owners made us feel welcome with fresh flowers upon arrival and a spotless house. It is in a beautiful neighborhood and sits high up on a hill with panoramic views of the sea with a birds eye view of the sunset! I would definately go back! Thank you Marla! Shipley Stratford.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Shipley. You are all welcomed anytime. You also left the house in great shape and your daughters artwork and note are precious and are now in the guestbook! Tell her how much I appreciated her leaving that for me. Thanks for staying with us!

Del Mar
Car: recommended

Just 2 miles from the Del Mar Horse Races that run from July 17 - September 4. These races got their begining in 1937 with Bing Crosby there to meet the first fan through the gate. These races have become a must do for horse racing enthusiasts as well as casual fans. . Other attractions include Legoland, SeaWorld & the World Famous San Diego Zoo. Legoland can be found just to the north in Carlsbad, while SeaWorld and the world famous San Diego Zoo can be found to the south. Not to taken for granted are the countless miles of beautiful beaches just down the hill from the house.
