Just like our home, Del Mar has something for everyone.

About Stephanie Sakayan

I grew up in a near by beach town and even though we moved away we found ourselves back here often. As our family grew and our children fell in love with coming to San Diego we made the decision to purchase a vacation home here. Del mar has always been one of my favorite places and beaches! My kids love the flat open beaches, and walking to the near by shops and restaurants, playing at the park and taking our dog to doggie beach. I hope you and your family will fall in love with it too!

Why Stephanie Sakayan chose Del Mar

I wanted this home to have the perfect mix of feeling like home but also on vacation. The location allows us to walk anywhere we need - nothing is more than 15 min (and thats with the kids)! For it to feel like our own home, and comfortable for those staying there, when furnishing/decorating it everything was of high quality. From the linens and towels, to stocking the kitchen and the furniture - it is all of nice quality to help provide comfort and luxury for those who are staying there.

Del Mar is perfectly situated, its 15-20 min to most of the big tourist attractions - Sea World, Zoo, Legoland, etc but is not highly populated so you are never having to search for a spot at the beach! The limited parking access to the public helps keep the Del Mar beaches open and spacious - so our house having a driveway that can fit 4 cars a big win for our friends and family:)

What makes this house unique

During the day I love opening the top part of the front door while I'm inside and letting my kids run around the front and play. Because we are on a cul de sac it is a nice quiet and private street with little pedestrian flow but quick beach access. Less than 2 minutes from door to sand.

At night, sitting in the hot tub with a glass of wine after the kids have gone to sleep is as relaxing as it gets!

Perfect Del Mar home

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves staying at this property. We visited three months ago and couldn't wait to come back. It is an ideal location with just a short walk to the beach. Everything is provided (boogie boards, sand toys, etc...)Stephanie is wonderful to work with too. She is quick to respond and willing to give suggestions for anything you might need (photographer, restaurants, etc...). We took our children to Legoland and it was less than a half hour away. We cannot say enough great things about this property. You will not be disappointed.

Such a lovely home and owners. We are grateful they are willing to share their little piece of heaven with us. The home is perfectly stocked for a beach get away. No need to bring anything but a laid back Southern California attitude. Although it looks small, the use of space is impressive. Our family of 5 fit with extra beds and it was an easy location for a small family reunion in the back yard with frequent walks to see sunsets. We hope to return soon.

My wife and our three young daughters had THE absolute best week here. The house is gorgeous, full of generous amenities, with a perfect backyard for hosting BBQs (plus a hot tub!) It's literally a 3 minute walk to the beach. We're already planning our next trip and recommend it without hesitation!

We had an incredible time at this house. It was so wonderful being able to walk to the beach multiple times a day. Stephanie was extremely helpful in recommending restaurants to us and things to do. We look forward to returning again in the future.

Cool place, awesome location

Super friendly and welcoming owner. This house is quiet and very comfortable. It has all the modern amenities but still feels like an old-school beach house. We loved it.

Great Family Beach House!

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying in this adorable Del Mar beach cottage! Our 3 adults and 4 small children had plenty of room to sleep, eat, and play. The house was cozy and easy, great for small kids full of energy and sand! We loved having a fenced-in backyard for the kids, a hot tub for afternoon "pool time", and a big wagon to haul all our gear to the beach! The beach was an easy and safe 5-minute walk. The house is on a cul-de-sac with a basketball hoop at the end, so we felt our kids were safe even if they went out the front door. This was very important.

The house had plenty of dishes and glasses, sheets and towels, and even a few games and toys. The older kids loved the video came console! The indoor laundry was a great plus.

We enjoyed a great rapport with the owner. When we arrived, one item was broken, and she shipped another out right away. Great service!

There were a few things that needed to be cleaned or fixed, which is why I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5. These have been communicated to the owner.

We felt very much at home in this Beach House, and we would love to stay here again.
