Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom 1 Bath Adorable Beach Getaway With A 3 Minute Flat Walk To The Sand

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. Cottage equipped with Pack N Play, high chair and twin bed side rail.

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

Brenda, mother of 4 kids (within 5 years) and engineer by degree, is wildly detail oriented and loves to share the coastal San Diego area with all guests, especially young families creating their beach memories.

Our family has lived in Solana Beach (one town north - walking distance) since 1993. Our family thoroughly enjoys sharing everything this area has to offer from the beaches, surfing, body surfing, mountain biking, trail running, hiking, shops to the restaurants.

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 young families who want to enjoy all that the San Diego area has to offer in a quiet, safe, comfortable environment.

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.

Come and enjoy paradise!! You won't want to leave.

5 star review!

  • 5 of 5

Great experience from the booking to the check out. We used it for a corporate retreat for 3 execs and found it to be a perfect setting to get work done in a non business environment and then close to everything on our breaks. recommend highly.

Privacy and quiet with ocean breezes

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. It was a short walk to the beach, where we could stroll barefoot in the sand. Everything we needed was right there. We ate dinner at Jake's one night, some of the best salmon I ever had. I would definitely come back. It was fun watching the surfers. Loved the sunsets!

Charming, comfortable and close to beach

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 and 3.5 year old daughters LOVED the cottage. It was equipt with tons of beach toys, blankets, umbrellas, boogie boards etc to make our beach adventures perfect. We even BBQ one night. This small cottage was great for our little family and we look forward to returning.

Treasured time away!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year vacationing in this rental. Every single year, it exceeds expectations. We love it here and will return for year 4. The past two years my parents have rented the front cabin. It's a great way to see them as we live across the country from them. Brenda and team do an outstanding job making this spot perfect. Thank you for providing our family an affordable escape from reality. The memories we've made here through out the years are treasured.

Would stay here every time!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure what my favorite part about renting this house was! The location, the house or the experience Brenda provides with such a great rental! The little beach house was a perfect size for my family and it's so quiet and private, you really get a great escape! Brenda has everything you could possibly need on your stay, even supplies common toiletries which was so nice. The beds were very comfortable and when we arrived she had the cutest little pack n play set up with sheets and blankets as well for my son. He loved it and so did we! There is a great outdoor space as well, perfect for a backyard picnic or BBQ. The whole experience was just really wonderful. Brenda is also a joy to work with and I think she truly cares about her guests and their experience at her beach cottage. We have already discussed coming back just to stay here again! Keep up the good work Brenda!
