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 Del Mar

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.

Cute cottage by the sea

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for families. Beach is a quick walk from the cottage. Cottage is well equipped with beach chairs and boogie boards. The owner/manager was incredibly responsive . Location is great; we were able to take advantage of all that Del Mar has to offer. Thanks for a great stay!

This cottage is lovely, comfortable and clean.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage and the private quaint yard was lovely. We enjoyed the lemons from the lemon tree. It is truly is close to the beach. The beaches, town and general area are beautiful. Another five to ten degrees of warmth would have made our visit even nicer.

Beach paradise

  • 5 of 5

This just has to be the best vacation home ever! Although it’s not large, this half-a-ranch-house a few hundred feet from the ocean in Del Mar, San Diego’s most upscale beach town/suburb, has been home to us (a couple in our 60’s from Chicago) for two winters in a row and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Beautiful garden, plenty of privacy, and lovely neighbors. It’s also good for kids, with lots of amenities (the owner’s daughter is a professional surf instructor). I’d suggest bringing a car – the village’s downtown is a bit of a strenuous uphill walk – and the nearby attractions are spread out over a large area. But some people will just want to go to the spectacular beach, which is seven houses away. Brenda, the owner, and Miriam, her assistant, are just great and will be there within minutes if there’s a problem. Have fun!

All I needed plus a great location

  • 5 of 5

It was exactly as advertised! I didn't realize it was as close to the beach as it was, fantastic location. Everything was perfect, I would highly recommend it and will be returning soon.
