About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

A spectacular newly built modern home located just north of San Diego and La Jolla. Look no further. You have found a truly beautiful home filled with art to relax in or come home to after an excellent day at the beach, an incredible score at Torrey Pines Golf Course, or a handful of victories at Del Mar Horse Racing Track. Guests will have access to the entire 3-story house excluding the garage and storage room. Full kitchen and outdoor BBQ island.

DVD library, HD channels, and Internet available.

My neighborhood is very architecturally diverse. It is book ended by the State park to the north and the lagoon to the south. Natural beauty abounds. This is one of the most sought after beach communities in San Diego.

There is a train station to the north and south. The public bus stop is right on the coast directly west, about a 5 minute walk.

You are going to have an EXCELLENT experience in my home. Pets? - let's talk about it. Families are welcome.

The house is located about 17 miles north of the San Diego airport. It's about 2 miles west of the Interstate 5 freeway. The nearest train station is about 5 miles north in Solana Beach. There are usually plenty of taxis at the train station and airport.

About Cameron Thorburn

I am a single father of two. I work in the film and TV industry in Hollywood. I've been a world traveler since my early twenties and really enjoy the traveling experience.

Cameron Thorburn purchased this house in 2005

Why Cameron Thorburn chose San Diego County

I live by myself most of the time and feel it's a shame not to share this great house. Please come and stay here! (the house is all yours, I won't be there).

What makes this house unique

Peaceful and relaxing, charming and luxurious. The beach is a 5 minute walk.

Beautiful, clean, well-equipped home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Felt so lucky to find this wonderful rental in the San Diego area. The home is very clean, beautiful, and spacious. It has a nice little yard, and the rear portion is securely fenced so we were able to let our dogs out off-leash. Most rooms have a patio or balcony off of them, including a 3rd floor spacious rooftop patio with dining table and ocean view. The house is very well equipped - the kitchen has everything you need and more, and there are lots of clean towels and linens. The living room and master bedroom both had nice, large flat screen TVs with both cable and a large, high-quality selection of DVDs. There were also lots of great books. The kitchen has a nice eat-in area with a good-sized table, and there is a nice dining room and larger dining table as well. The house is nicely decorated and there is a lot of interesting art to enjoy. The location is great - across the street from the north end of Torrey Pines park and beach. The neighborhood is fairly quiet and not too busy. There is a nice selection of restaurants within easy walking distance (1-3 blocks). The house is a quick and easy drive to many places of interest, and is close to freeway but not close enough to hear noise from it. The owner is very helpful and easy going and VERY responsive - he answered any messages or questions pretty much immediately. There were not a lot of house rules to remember or tasks/chores to perform at checkout - guests are basically just asked to use common sense and consideration. Our family really enjoyed ourselves during our stay and hope to return. Highly recommended!

Great family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent two weeks with our daughters and grandkids at Cameron's home. The house is very comfortable...roomy, very well supplied, and in a terrific location in Del Mar Heights. The area is conveniently situated between La Jolla and Torrey Pines to the South and the great beach town of Del Mar to the North. Everything you need is within a short walk or few minutes in the car. Dealing with Cameron was a pleasure...he's gracious, very responsive, and overall will do everything to make sure your stay is positive. If you're looking for a neat vacation home in a great area, we heartily recommend this house and location!

Beautiful and relaxing home

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home! Architecturally stunning, with a short walk to the beach. Our family found it a perfect place to relax for a few days. Restaurants are a short walk away, and the house is conveniently located a few minutes drive from everything else you need.

Cameron made sure we were all set, and was available for questions.

Amazing home near great family friendly beach

  • 5 of 5

Loved the decor. This home features quite a bit of interesting art work. Enjoyed plugging in the iPhone and dancing on the upstairs lookout floor as well as lounging in the Tv room watching one of the many great flicks Owner has available. Great grill but make sure to turn on the rotisserie if you need to get it hot. Cooks chicken like a charm. Beach is a really close walk and the spot by the bridge is great for toddlers. Lots of kitchen amenities including a ton of spices but keep an eye out for out-of-date items. There is a train that runs nearby, and you can hear it run by with horn at night.

Owner's Response: Hey Scott, thank you for the kind review! I'm sorry about any out of date stuff you came across! I'll remedy that right away. They're working on the railroad bridge so it's mandatory to sound the train horn. That work is scheduled to be completed very soon. Kind regards, Cam

Exceeded our expectations....WOW!!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is unique, immaculate, and comfortable. Our family of 6 had plenty of room to spread out and everyone loved staying here! The sunset views from the top level were breathtaking. The location is perfect - just a short 5 minute walk to a lovely beach, and there are a few restaurants within walking distance. Cam, the owner, is generous, thoughtful, and kind, and was a pleasure to work with. Not only does he share his great beach wagon with chairs and body boards, but inside the house there are games and toys for the kids, and books and DVDs for everyone. No one wanted to leave, and everyone wants to go back! Staying here made it the best San Diego vacation we've ever had, hands down. Thank you Cam!!
