Houseful at the Beach in Del Mar

  • 4 of 5

My 2 daughters and family including 3 grand-daughters raging from 19 years to 4 years spent a glorious 11 days in this home by the beach. You can see the water from the front windows and its a short 2 blocks to get to the sand. We could see the 4th of July fireworks from the patio in the back so no fighting traffic to get to the San Diego Fair. We hit a record heat wave as our only big drawback. 91 degrees is unheard of in Del Mar so it would have been nice to have ceiling fans and a few more windows that opened in the front. I don't think this would be a problem on any normal stay at the house. I would love to stay here over the 4th again. Steve is great to work with.

Excellent Del Mar Beach Location

  • 5 of 5

Can't beat this location. This property was perfect for a family with small children. The owner has everything on site to keep the kids entertained and comfortable. We will definitely be contacting Steven next time we head down to San Diego to visit family.

Location Location Location!

  • 4 of 5

Owner is very nice and was accommodating on our unusual dates needed. The property's location is superb. In town for our son's wedding at l'auberge and able to rent both upstairs and downstairs units for all family and friends to pile in together. Very relaxing and comfortable knowing we could walk everywhere we wanted to go! Just across the street from a perfect beach spot (had great fun with a pickup beach volleyball match), Jake's and Poseidon's for nice dining. Upstairs unit has nice view on beach side and large patio on the back for gathering. Only complaint we have is BEWARE of the neighbor..he screamed out his window that we were keeping his 7 year old from getting his was 3 adults talking at normal conversation level at the patio table at 8:57 pm. No A/C but owner provides plenty of fans for comfortable sleeping. Downstairs unit has a nice fenced front yard for gathering, and owner provides plenty of outdoor accoutrements necessary for beach activities. Would, most definitely, rent this house again from Steven McDowell on our next trip to Del Mar!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at Stevens beach house. The shed full of beach supplies (boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, rash guards, bikes, etc) made it easy to flyin and have lots of great beach time. The kitchen is well stocked and there are plenty of beach and bath towels. The back deck is great for coffee and cocktails. Steven was easy to reach and responsive. We hope to return!
