Quiet cottage near the beach in nice private yard.
SUPERHOSTEntire guesthouse · 2 guests · 1 bed · 1 bath
Quiet cottage near the beach in nice private yard.

Private cottage in in a great neighborhood close to the beach with full kitchen (no oven), full bathroom (vanity, mirror, tub with shower), comfy Queen bed, TV & desk. No guests without prior approval from hosts. The Belly Up Tavern, Del Mar Race Track & Fairgrounds and plenty of fine restaurants are nearby. It is a five-minute walk to the trail-head into San Elijo Lagoon Preserve where you can usually see ducks and sometimes egrets, herons, pelicans, hawks, falcons, crows & other birds.

What guests are saying:

“Bruce and Kathy's place is absolutely wonderful. You feel like you're in your own little sanctuary of peace and relaxation. It's got a gorgeous entrance and view of the trees out of all of the windows. The space is bigger than I expected, and even small details from extra cushions and light switch placement, you can tell they have really thought about the space. They were really great at checking in on us to make sure we were ok, and we loved meeting their dogs. Being in a new city in a strange time (coronavirus outbreak) we felt we had a safe place to stay and relax. Cannot recommend enough!”

What guests are saying:

“This place is the perfect place if you are looking for a little getaway. The location was far enough where it feels like you got transported somewhere else but close enough to drive into town. Check-in was a breeze and the airstream was exactly as pictured. I loved all the little touches that made the place feel homey. It was a lot more spacious than I had expected and the air conditioning worked great especially in the summer heat. The airstream was fenced off so we had our own little space but close enough to see the animals and visit them anytime we liked. All the animals were friendly and such a treat. Kim was very accommodating and replied back in a timely fashion. The complementary goat lattes were the perfect way to end our trip. We only stayed for one night but would’ve loved to stay for another!”

Ocean View Loft Space in Del Mar

Ocean View Loft Space in Del Mar

I live in an award winning home built and designed by Ted Smith. My home is the original "Go Home" unique housing created by Ted Smith. We have a view of Los Penasquitos Lagoon and Ocean. We are walking distance to Torrey Pines State Park and Beach.

What guests are saying:

“Tambie was an amazing host. We were hesitant staying at an airbnb during the pandemic, but our worries quickly subsided when we arrived at the loft. The place was spotless, well stocked (sheets, towels, beach chairs — even food!), and a ten minute walk from the beach. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a beach getaway in San Diego.”
