About Matthew Semmer

The owners are long time Del Mar residents who feel blessed to be able to share their home with you. They are now retired and enjoy visiting their children, meeting new people, and taking road trips exploring our beautiful country.

Why Matthew Semmer chose Del Mar Heights

We were fortunate enough to raise a happy and healthy family in this home, entertain our friends, host small fundraisers for charities we are passionate about, and even relax and enjoy an occasional sunset overlooking the ocean. And we hope that our home will give you wonderful memories to cherish as well. We have extensively remodeled the house over the years and we think this is the perfect home for both family vacations and adult getaways.

Gracious Home for Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and one grandchild chose this home to rent because of its 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. We like to vacation together, and plenty of space appeals to us! However, we were surprised by all the quality details-- great linens, comfortable beds, lovely furniture, plenty of kitchen supplies, etc. We have never rented a space that was so well appointed and cared for! The home was clean, the yard pristine. And the view was impeccable! Everything functioned well, and all facets exceeded expectation. Matthew was a perfect host in helpfulness and availability! Our week in Del Mar was truly a "getaway" because of our accommodations. Hope to come again!

We stayed here for our family vacation and it was fantastic. We loved the view.

  • 5 of 5

It was an excellent location, you could walk to town, the beach, and restaurants.

It was clean and roomy. The kitchen was nice and updated.

There was six of us including two children and they loved the pool and jacuzzi. Adults enjoyed the jacuzzi, as well as the outdoor space. Two separate outside sitting and lounging areas. The pool bathroom was also a bonus. No need to run in and out of the house.

Enjoyed watching the kids play whether we were inside or out.

Beautiful view of the ocean from the backyard, master bedroom, kitchen and TV room. It was truly perfect!

Matthew was very easy to work with and took wonderful care of us.

We hope to return again next year!

Great Del Mar beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for Spring Break the first week in April. We had 4 adults and 2 kids which provided ample space....we had one bedroom unused. The pool and patio were fantastic. Location was convenient allowing for a good walk to beach/shops/restaurant. Definitely would consider again in the future when we head back to Del Mar.

It was the perfect place for our three family get-together

  • 5 of 5

It was Grandma's task to find a place for spring break and it was Grandma's first experience with VRBO. Matthew was accommodating and helpful throughout the process. Our group was 6 adults and 4 kids ages 5 to 2 1/2.

The hot tub/pool was the biggest hit, but equally there was an assortment of toys, small table and chairs that made entertaining the children so easy.

From the property it was minutes to the beach, 15-20 minutes to the Scripps Aquarium, Seal Beach, and just a bit longer to Balboa Park.

The view is as advertised and the sunsets varied in degrees of artistic.

The home provides a full kitchen with cooking utensils, and a great outdoor grill. We ate out for several lunches, but had dinner there because of the children.

We are already thinking about next year!

Great house with great view!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property for 8 days toward the end of August.

We absolutely loved it!

First of all, Matthew, the son of the owner who dealt with us, was very nice and comprehensive of our needs.

Second, the house was actually very very nice. From an architectural stand point it is quite modern (as I like) even though the furniture of the living room maybe is not at the level of the house, but is definitely ok anyway and has everything you need.

Third, it is located in a very quiet area of Del Mar (which is anyway quite quiet!) which is also very easily reachable from the motorway (less than 5 minutes) and from where you can definitely walk to the shops and restaurants if you want.

Fourth, and most important, the house has a wonderful view of the ocean. We loved having a drink on the deck while looking at the sunset with our kids swimming in the pool. The temperature of the water is set at 86° (just perfect) and there is a Jacuzzi built in the pool. In addition the pool faces the ocean while many other properties we considered had the pool on the East side of the house.

The house has 4 very comfortable bedrooms (including a huge master bedroom) and can perfectly accommodate 8 guests. There is also a nice barbecue which we used a couple of times.

Overall we loved it and we would definitely consider renting it again if in the area.
