Del Mar Heights House Rental Photos and Description

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

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 home close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home equipped with all amenities. Clean and well organized. A short walk to the beach and beautiful views from the 3rd floor patio. The owner communicates quickly and is very easy to work with. We will come back next year! Clearly a 5 star home for a wonderful visit.

Spacious & quiet with great rooftop views!

  • 5 of 5

We were so excited to find this gem! We wanted a quiet beach area and this was perfect! We were a short walk to Torrey Beach. We also spent a few mornings hiking up Torrey Pines State Park nearby (so many beautiful beach views! We even saw a few dolphins!). The house itself was very spacious. We spent many mornings sitting on the ground level patio, and evenings on the rooftop patio. I don't think we ever ate indoors because it was so beautiful outside! The kitchen was perfect for preparing meals, it had everything we needed. There's a grocery store a very short driving distance to get the food we needed. As others have said, it was nice to have space to get away for quiet time in the house. There were many places to sneak away and read a book. We also used the beach wagon to take my little girl down to the beach. She loved it! There were beach chairs and boogie boards that came in very handy too. Cameron was fantastic and I would gladly come back to stay! We had a blast! Thanks for everything!

Thornburn property in Del Mar made for a wonderful vacation

  • 4 of 5

The Thornburn property was wonderful for our beach vacation! It was well appointed and very clean. The short walk from the house to the Torrey Pines beach was easy and the beach is beautiful. The house is well located with views of the ocean and the estuary at Torrey Pines beach. There are several lovely private spots on the property for quiet reflection, outdoor dining and reading. The roof top deck with its ocean view was a favorite. There are several steps within the home to reach the different levels so someone that has trouble navigating stairs may find it a challenge. We however loved the different levels of the home and found it made for interesting architecture and the views from the bedroom level and the rooftop were excellent. The owner was very responsive and easy to work with which made our vacation at his home very stress free.

Everything we needed and more

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! From the second we walked in, the kids (and the adults) went nuts! This is such a unique home that had so much room. Usually in beach homes, there is one room that has to be shared by everyone. Not this one. There were so many rooms to escape to if you wanted to read a book, or just relax and enjoy the view. The girls loved "their" room, and the boy loved his. We loved the patio on the roof where we could have our evening wine and watch the sunset. Absolutely everything you need is here. Boogie boards, chairs, you name it, Cam has it. And he has a wagon so you can lug all your stuff to the beach! I would definitely stay here again, and I highly recommend it😃

Thanks to Homeaway for introducing this property to our family. We spent 16 days at the beautiful property before moving to Las Vegas. During our stay there, we really enjoyed every moment of it and leaving it was a sad feeling. The beach was a walking distance and my kids went to the beach almost every single day. Food outlet serving Chinese food (though we didn't go), Seafood cuisine restaurant and many others were also a walking distance away. A special mention for those Tacos and other types of Mexican snacks, Robertos Snack Bar is just down at the corner of Via Aprillia Dr. A must try venue to those jalapeno lovers.

About the house, it is nestled in a very upscale district of Del Mar. Peace and tranquility is assured as the neighbourhood maintain such peaceful ambience. House in and out was in a superb and clean condition. If you feel lazy to go out, enjoy a huge range of DVD titles along with a superb audio AV system in the living room as well as the master suite. All the rooms are clean and the linens are hotel quality i must say. The kitchen is complete with everything you can imagine and my wife baked cake and biscuits during our stay.

We would really give a Five Star rating to this property and we fully recommend to others to enjoy the property. We will definitely comeback next year to stay at this property. Thanks to the landlord Mr Cameron Thorburn for his warm and excellent hospitality and made our stay a pleasant one.

Beautiful location. Beautiful house. Beautiful experience.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Thorburn house was more than satisfactory.

The location was the perfect distance from the beach - easy walking distance - but not too close to crowds and traffic. A short drive to UCSC, shopping, and lots of restaurants - much better than other places we have stayed at in San Diego.

The house was clean, warm and inviting with all the amenities. Beautiful and thoughtfully decorated, with a 3rd-floor patio view of the ocean.

Thank you Cameron for making your house available to us.
