This has been a second family home for the past 28 years. The family was active in theThoroughbred Racing Industry and would spend the summers at the beach, the Village and the Del Mar Race Track.
The Father of the family has recently passed away and the Mother is relying on her children to manage the property at this time. The Off-Site Managers are the Son-in-Law, John Finkbiner and Daughter Judi Finkbiner who live ten miles from the property.
This is a comfortable home for your family to enjoy and create wonderful memories as the family has for all these years.
Judi Finkbiner purchased this condo in 1986
The Mother was born and raised in San Diego. She met the Father while he was attending and playing football for San Diego State University. They lived in Los Angeles County but would spend the summers here for the Del Mar Racing season. The family members would use this home for vacations and temporary living while attending colleges in San Diego County.
Ocean view from every room and a great front deck with table and chairs overlooking the pool, spa and the Pacific Ocean. The comfort of this home will allow you and your guests to enjoy family time together within walking distance to the beach and quaint Del Mar Village with top restaurants, weekend farmers market, world class horse racing, fairgrounds and beautiful beaches.
What an incredible convenient location you have here. We could not have envisioned anything much better than this!! Thanks for letting us enjoy the beautiful ocean and San Diego golf courses from the spectacular settings this home provides.
My husband and I arrived from Ohio at the end of February, and stayed until April 1st. During that time, we helped our daughter relocate to San Diego for her new job. Also during this time, our other adult children and our grandson joined us for periods of time, to vacation with us. It was nice working with Judi, who handled the rental arrangements, and who was very responsive to any questions we had.
The condo itself was well equipped with linens, towels, kitchen necessities, toys and games, etc. There was also a Pack and Play for the baby. The location was just a few houses away from the beach, with a beautiful ocean view from the upstairs level of the house. The beach is not easily accessed due to the train tracks here, but there is an easy crossing to the beach a few blocks away, within walking distance. There is also a wonderful playground and park in that area.
We enjoyed the hot tub often, but the pool was not quite warm enough for us to use during the month we were there. I'm sure it is great in warmer months. It definitely is clean and well maintained. Someone was there from the pool company each week to clean and check on both the pool and the hot tub.
One suggestion to someone just arriving...try to get there in daylight, since it gets very dark at night. It is helpful to have a flashlight...we used the lights on our cell phone to help us find our way from the street to the house.
There is a lot to do in the Del Mar area, with lots of restaurants and some shopping nearby. We also enjoyed exploring some of San Diego's other attractions, such as wine country (Temecula), and the San Diego Zoo.
We hope to return soon, since our daughter is now living and working in San Diego.
The location and property was great .Owners are very nice and attentive to details and needs.
The house was really accommodating and we found all that we needed and enjoyed a very comfortable stay.
The location was absolutely excellent – close to the beach with easy five minute access to the freeway system.
I would love to give this review a five star rating but I would gladly give it a 4 star rating for the reasons listed below;
Unfortunately we didn’t find the house very clean it could really have done with deep clean i.e. in the corners.
Although the house accommodated 8 people we only found 4 bath towels and there was no bedding that we could find for the put-you-up sofa (luckily we were visiting relations and they helped us out).
Another slight problem was that the light bulbs blew in the downstairs bedroom and bathroom and we looked everywhere for spares but we didn’t find any.
The only thing we think that needs replacing would be a really old battered frying pan – it has seen it’s day!
WE HAD A VERY BEAUTIFUL STAY. WE LIKE IT VERY MUCH. WE WILL HAVE TO DO IT AGAIN. EVERYTHING THAT YOU NEEDED WAS THERE. COULD SEE THE OCEAN. JUST A SHORT WALK TO THE BEACH. THE POOL WAS GREAT AND SO WAS THE HOT TUB. IT WAS THE PERFECT SETTING FOR OUR GROUP. THE SUN SET WAS BEAUTIFUL.
What an outstanding home! Del Mar is such a fun little town and this house is in walking distance to everything it has to offer (the beach, great food, shopping, coffee). That being said, due to the set up of the complex, you have a great sense of privacy in the home as well even while outside on the porch or enjoying the fantastic pool! Ideal location for sure. The house itself was fully stocked and very comfortable. The kitchen is very new and had everything we needed. Highly recommend this house!
We enjoyed our stay and loved the location. Perfect to walk to shops, restaurants and beach. We even walked to the Race Track one day and to Torrey Pines (which is gorgeous and a must see!). All the amenities you could possibly need are provided and the owner was quick to respond with answers to questions. The owner has responded to previous requests and we found beach toys, beach towels/blankets, etc. provided. Beds were comfortable and having two baths is a plus, however, the furniture overall could use updating. Del Mar is a great town.
