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.

This place and its owner are amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This is just the perfect spot for a small family (we have two little kids) to get away for a beach vacation. Brenda and her team are incredibly friendly, responsive, and helpful, and they go the extra mile to make your stay extra easy and relaxing. Del Mar is a gorgeous little beach town, and this house is just a few minutes' walk to a beautiful beach and a slightly longer walk to the great park and restaurants in town. It's also a very short drive from Cardiff, Solana Beach, Encinitas and all those great beach towns. This little house is a dream!

Wonderful spot for a family.

  • 5 of 5

We went to Del Mar over Memorial Day weekend with our two kids. The Octopus Hideaway was perfect for our family of four. The owners were wonderful. They left a sweet gift for our children, checked in to make sure we had everything we needed and even sent us a text letting us know that we could have a late check out. The house was clean and the kitchen was fully stocked if we wanted to cook any meals at home. The backyard had a perfect picinic bench and comfy chairs for reading or hanging out. The walk to the beach took less than five minutes and the garage had all the beach toys, boogie boards and beach chairs a family would need. The restaurants were all about 20-25 minute walk (with kids) or a five minute uber drive and there was always an uber within 3 minutes wait time. We will definitely be staying here again!

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!
