Delightful house, lovely garden, helpful owner's rep

  • 4 of 5

The house is delightful. It is located at the end of a cul-de-sac and is easily accessible by car. On foot, access is a little more challenging. To get to the beach, on foot, requires a walk through a tunnel that sits beneath the rail track. On one of our treks, the tunnel was doing double as a drain and walking through it wasn't pleasant.

In saying that, the house location is ideal for watching the sun go down over the ocean and anyone with full mobility will have no trouble navigating the tunnel and its, occasionally, choppy waters.

Back to the house. It is well-appointed and thoughtfully furnished. The kitchen is well-stocked and the furnishings comfortable for anyone wanting to lounge and hang out. Our stay involved two adults and our pet dog, Maisie. She loved hanging out on the deck and the English-style cottage garden was a big hit with the canine and the adults.

The welcome from Rory, was warm and much appreciated. He was on hand to offer help and local tips although we didn't end up calling him, once we settled into our stay. However, I'm confident he'd have been available to help, if required.

My only gripe with the entire experience revolved around the imposition of an insurance cost, that I would have preferred not to pay. It is quite possible that I didn't read the Ts and Cs clearly, when making the reservation, but the added cost - while not substantial - came as something of a surprise. The alternative to paying the additional charge was to have $3k deducted from my credit card, as a security deposit.

I like fast and efficient wi-fi when away from home and this property offered that, which was great. The passing trains are so infrequent that they remained charming rather than a nuisance and anyone with reservations about being disturbed, on that front, shouldn't worry.

The house has its two bedrooms at ground level with the living room, kitchen etc on the upper floor. It may be problematic for guests who struggle with stairs, although the master bedroom is easily accessible even for guests with limited mobility.

Would not hesitate to stay again, if looking for home from home in Del Mar.

Perfect Property

We loved our stay at the Train Station Cottage. The grounds are wonderful and the location is perfect for the beach, restaurants and shopping. The hospitality by the owners was top notch and the home has a great layout. We will definitely be back to the Cottage!

Incredible Del Mar Escape!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible and authentic Del Mar experience!

The Train Station Cottage was an amazing "stay-cation" escape for my family and friends. The house was steps away from the beach, but remote enough to feel secluded and private. And all of the village shops and restaurants just a short walk away.

The house is extremely well appointed with terrific views of the coast and sunset. The layout of the upstairs deck and outdoor space is perfect for entertaining a few friends for drinks and bites to watch the sunset after a day at the beach.

The bedrooms are extremely comfortable, private, and quiet and each with a well-appointed bathroom.

The house even has beach chairs, body boards, and a foam-top surf board to use during your stay. Turnkey vacation!

If you are looking for an upscale cottage with the balance of privacy and beach access, this is the perfect home for you! We certainly will be returning.

The perfect beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely LOVED everything about this house. The place is very clean, beautifully furnished and had everything we needed. The location is perfect - a super short walk into town or to the beach, but on a quiet street. The train noise didn't bother us at all. Rory was so accommodating, professional and absolutely wonderful to work with. Looking forward to continuing to come back yearly!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed here several times, both in the summer and winter. We have been visiting Del Mar for many years and there is no better place! The cottage is clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. Both the outdoor garden and upstairs balcony are great places to watch the sunset and relax. The location can't be beat, within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, shops and race track. Rory, the manager, is very hospitable and very attentive to all of our needs. We always look forward to coming back here!

Our Visit

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with family of 4. 2 kids. 10 and 8. Great spot. very close to beach. Got used to train noise after a day. Any place in Del Mar close to beach has train noise. Well worth it. House is very clean and updated and well maintained. Rory was great and addressed any questions and concerns. Would highly recommend.
