    The perfect Del Mar location. Shopping, the beach, and dining are all within walking distance. The rooms have recently been remodelled. The furniture is comfortable, and the king bed in the bedroom is a plus. The new night stands have plug ins for phones etc....More

    Hi Cynthia - thank you so much for your review, and for dubbing us the 'perfect beach location.' We agree!

    Great bluff side setting with ocean views, we could hear the sound of the waves during the night. It's a very short walk to restaurants and shops. The grocery store is a short drive and many other attractions are less than 1/2 hour away.
