Hey future guests 🙂 We urge you to please read the entire ad and all house rules prior to booking. Thanks for checking us out.  Hope to host you! 

You’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time when you enter The Del Mar Ocean Front Historic Retreat. This 1930s home is located directly on the sand and is unique from its vintage Spanish-style furnishings to its winding passageways. This rambling home sleeps up to fourteen people in its seven bedrooms. There’s a 3-car garage and extra parking spaces for at least 5 additional cars behind the front gate, so this home is ideal for multiple families or surfers looking for a fun getaway. A lifeguard tower is just steps away from the home, which helps ensure a safer summertime beach experience. The beach is wide and the surfing is great (it’s a beach break). This home is within walking distance to fine oceanfront dining and fun shopping in the village of Del Mar. Nearby Powerhouse Park provides a spot for a seaside picnic or free weekly concerts in the summer. You can also walk to the Del Mar Racetrack from this vintage home. The world-renowned championship Torrey Pines Golf Course is just a short drive away. If you’re in the mood for communing with nature, you’ll also be wowed by Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, where you’ll find a choice of trails to explore, all overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Spending time in this one-of-a-kind home on the incredible Del Mar Beach will create vacation memories to last a lifetime.

-Please be aware when booking this property that it's from the 1930s and has quirks. The house is not updated, this is part of its charm.

-This home DOES NOT have AC, sorry.
-This home has very wide railings on the upper floor. Therefore, this home is not suitable for small children, due to the risk of falling from the 2nd floor down to the 1st floor below. Injury and/or death could occur from a fall.
