About Steven McDowell

Del Mar resident since 2001. Picture is from our own home in Del Mar. Bought our beach place to have somewhere to share with family and friends and a place for our kids to stay in the future when they have their own family. At the place are towels, beach toys for running out to the surf and at the place more stuff for young children to keep them occupied while you relax or cook. Many items we switch out with our own gear, if you need something just let us know.

Steven McDowell purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Steven McDowell chose San Diego County

Purchased from a family that has owned the place since 1963. Loved the location, have friends with families that live close. Wanted a place to share. This works

What makes this townhome unique

Beach, the Powerhouse are just steps away.

Perfect Del Mar Stay

  • 5 of 5

Steven was an awesome host, the place was comfortable, clean, well laid out. The location is absolutely perfect. Parking is easy, there are beach toys/towels/etc, and an awesome patio area that is completely enclosed to keep the kids contained. The only negative part of our stay is that it wasn't long enough. This place is perfect for families, we have a 10 month old and three year old and the set up couldn't have been better.

The Rental was amazing! Very comfortable, great lay out and location couldn't be better. Kitchen is fully stocked for cooking, BBQ-ing or anything else you could want. You'll spend most of your time on the big, gorgeous patio. Highly recommend this perfect beach get away!
