About the property

2 bedroom 1 bath, quiet, adorable beach getaway, with outdoor patio/yard

One short (perfectly FLAT) block and a half to the best family beaches in San Diego County complete with bathrooms and a lifeguard tower. Walk to Del Mar Village, restaurants and parks. Plenty of on site parking including garage. Outdoor living spaces for entertaining and meals. Boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas and wagons for the beach. Located on a quiet cul de sac with minimum traffic. Come enjoy paradise - you won't want to leave.

There are two identical units each with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. Queen bed and (2) twin beds in each unit. Rent both if you have two families vacationing together or for grandparents to join the vacation and still have their own space.

Beach Cruisers/Bikes can be rented in advance and be waiting for you in the garage when you arrive. Since the area is relatively flat, with bikes, you can go just about any where without your car. The Solana Beach Cedros Design District shopping area is a must see with unique boutiques and one of a kind stores, restaurants and cafes just 2 miles north of the property.

In addition to all of the commercial activities to enjoy in San Diego (SeaWorld, Legoland, SD Zoo, Disney Land), there are also miles of beaches and trails to walk on outside your door to enjoy nature at its best. Free public tennis courts are also just 3 blocks away.

Torrey Pines Reserve and Golf Course are 3 miles away. There is so much to do and enjoy within minutes of this quaint cottage with lots of personal touches.

About Brenda Sampiere

Our family has lived in Solana Beach (one town north - walking distance) since 1993. We have 4 children ages (21, 19, 17, and 16). They are all California kids and thoroughly enjoy everything this area has to offer from the beaches, surfing, body surfing, mountain biking, trail running, hiking, shops to the restaurants. They never want to leave :)

Brenda Sampiere purchased this house in 2014

Why Brenda Sampiere chose San Diego County

We purchased this property because Del Mar/San Diego is such a magical place to visit. The set up of the property is perfect for couples and families who want to enjoy all that the San Diego area has to offer in a quiet, safe, comfortable environment. We actually have a hard time going on vacation because we are usually so happy to come home!

What makes this house unique

The most unique thing about this property is the FLAT short walk to the beach. Most of the homes north and south of the Del Mar beach colony require ramps, 100s of stairs or cliffs to climb down to get to the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Oh Brenda, that's great news. And so kind of you to return booking fee as well. Kindest thanks!



I'm not at all surprised you rebooked, the cottages look just wonderful.



Hope, too, to be in touch with a request in the future.



All the best,

Terry

Cute, well-equipped cottage close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this property with our two young boys! It is very well-equipped and kid-friendly with anything you need to make it feel like home. :) It was great to be so close to the beach and fairly close to restaurants/stores as well.

Charming property! Very close to beach and comfortable stroll to town. Just lovely!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy property has everything that you could need! Stayed for almost a week after Christmas into the new year with two teenage boys and husband. It's located perfectly for walking on the beach. Turn right to head down to Dog beach, or turn left on beach for a quick walk to town or cliffs. It was quiet and so relaxing. I would definitely stay here again!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved staying here. Great for kids and being close to the beach makes it so much easier taking them back and forth. House is super beachy and adorable and has everything you need to have a great stay. I would recommend this place for families with kids or someone who just wants to be close to the beach and town.

I will definitely stay here again!

Cozy, comfy and great location!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for my family vacation. The cottage was clean, had everything we needed for the beach, meals and everyday life. The beach is so close to the property that we were able to go multiple times a day. We will definitely return this rental.

Shell Cottage - great property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very positive experience staying at Shell Cottage. It is very close to the beach and other amenities. Spotless clean and had everything that we needed. Washer and dryer in garage which is also very clean. There were three of us and it was a nice size - compact but still plenty of space. Nice front porch. Would definitely recommend and would stay again.
