The Hollywood and Vine neighborhood in the Del Mar Mesa planned community is a tiny enclave of luxury homes located almost completely on a single, gated cul-de-sac. Homes here are on large lots, feature high-end amenities, and are close to hiking trails, shopping, dining, country clubs, employment centers and more.
Hollywood and Vine History
The Del Mar Mesa Specific Plan Area was adopted by the City of San Diego in 1996. Homes in this small neighborhood within Del Mar Mesa were built in the early-2000s.
Prior to development into residential communities, this area was used for agricultural purposes and was once home to the La Jolla and Ipai people.
Hollywood and Vine Housing
Hollywood and Vine is a small, gated community of luxury homes located on Del Vino Court. Most of the homes are located on a gated cul-de-sac, while one home generally considered part of the neighborhood is set apart from the others across Little Mcgonigle Ranch Road with its own security gate.
Most homes here have swimming pools, all have well-manicured landscaping and all have great outdoor entertaining areas.
Hollywood and Vine homes are rarely on the market and most are still owned by the original buyers. Estimated values are in the mid-$2,000,000 range, which is primarily based on comps near the community but not within the gated cul-de-sac that makes up this neighborhood.
Hollywood and Vine Restaurants & Shopping
There are plenty of shopping and dining options within easy reach from Hollywood and Vine, including those that are found throughout North County and in downtown San Diego.

Del Mar Highlands Town Center is also home to Cinepolis Luxury Cinemas, which is sure to become a favorite for date night.
The newest of the three is The Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch, which offers an upscale experience with shops, restaurants, fitness centers, salons and service providers. This is where you are going to find Trader Joe’s, Rite Aid, Panera Bread, Pure Barre, CRUDO by Pascal Lorange, Dolce at the Highlands and many other enticing offerings that are sure to make this plaza a regular stop.
