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.

Owner info

Beach Haus Rentals

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Del Mar, CA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
