About Allison Borts
We are local San Diegans who love the Del Mar beach! We know you will too!
Allison Borts purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Allison Borts chose Del Mar
We love this house as is it right in the middle of all Del Mar has to offer, the sand, the surf, the racetrack and fair. You can't get closer to the beach unless you are on the sand! It is the perfect size, roomy and clean. Updated & fresh! Well maintained cottage by the sea. Great private backyard space - and spacious front porch area. Walking distance to Del Mar Village, fine dining and shopping. No need to leave, but should you want to go see more of San Diego, you are close enough to other main attractions - the zoo, Legoland, Seaworld, the Wild Animal Park. If you want to venture downtown to the GasLamp District, you could go see the Padres play or visit Seaport Village. Lots of historical buildings and museums in Balboa Park. Or stay in the area and take a short drive to Del Mar Highlands (Cineopolis, fine dining, grocery store, shopping. Can't beat America's Finest City!
What makes this Cottage unique
Listen to the waves crash on the shore while sitting on the front porch. BBQ in the backyard. Stroll to the beach and watch the sunset and the green flash. This home is just the right size and in the perfect private location. Updated and clean. All Del Mar has to offer is within walking distance - other San Diego attractions just a short drive away!

Clean, welcoming, fun, close to beach
Stayed here with my family of five, mother in law, brother-in-law, his wife and their baby. Appreciated that Allison double checked with us before we booked to confirm that the sleeping arrangements would work for us. It was a bit cozy for that many people (the dining tables inside and in the beautiful backyard both sit six comfortably), but we had reviewed dozens of properties for our beach stay near San Diego and felt like this was the best option for the price/proximity to beach/location/cleanliness, and we wanted to make it work. We weren't disappointed.
The yard was well taken care of with beautiful flowers and a lemon tree. The home was clean-which was very important for my particular in-laws to feel comfortable- and had a welcoming style. It was close enough to the beach I could carry a wet young child in each arm home in a couple of minutes without tiring.
Thank you for taking such great care of our beach house! Come again anytime!
Fun, comfortable beach cottage
We enjoyed a month long stay in this clean, updated beach cottage. The location in the beach colony is terrific for access to wonderful Del Mar beach and Powerhouse park. The listing is quite accurate. Home is remarkably quiet, neighbors are friendly, and passing train noise is not bad (entire beach colony is subject to passing train noise). The rear patio is sun drenched and private. Owner is great to work with and super responsive. We look forward to another visit!
One of our all-time favorite beach cottage rentals
We've vacationed all along the coast: Coronado, La Jolla, Solana Beach and Carlsbad and this was our first stay in Del Mar. This house was closer to the beach than I expected...a very easy walk and the beach cart made it even easier. I was told that the surfing right at 20th was great for beginners so my girls took a lesson when we first got here and wanted to do nothing else for the rest of our trip. The house is well provisioned, clean, and comfortable. A great stay!
So glad you and your family enjoyed our home! Please come back and stay with us again.
Beach house in Del Mar
This house is in an ideal location...beach and restaurants are only minutes away. It is very charming and was clean upon arrival. They also provide beach essentials such as towels, chairs etc.. We enjoyed our stay very much. Would definitely recommend this property to friends.
We are so pleased you loved our home. Please come back anytime!
Perfect Del Mar Vacation Home
We've stayed at many Del Mar locations and this by far was our favorite. The house is perfectly situated... a few minutes to the beach or into town. The house is very bright and comfortable. The outdoor shower was perfect for washing off the sand. The kitchen and backyard BBQ, the wood floors, the laundry facilities, all made for a relaxing stay. We'll be back again next year.
So glad you enjoyed your stay!
Vacation in Del Mar
This house was just perfect! Location just 2 blocks from 20th. street beach could not have been more convenient! And the owner provided chairs that we could wheel so we didn't have to carry them! She also has an umbrella, a cooler, toys, towels, really everything we could need! The house was so pretty, clean, and comfortable! Everything was in great condition and highest quality. There is not one thing we needed! And the owner replied to all emails and questions right away and was very helpful whenever we needed her. I highly recommend staying here!!!
Hope to see you again next year!
