"Our family of four spent two glorious weeks at this condo from 6/21/14 - 7/5/14.
The unit very comfortably accommodated the four of us and there is room for four additional people - more than that might feel a bit crowded. It's located on the second floor of the south end of the complex, meaning no neighbors and more windows on one side and a much more secure feeling in terms of leaving the windows open during the day or at night. The living room and bedrooms were very nicely furnished. Two bathrooms were a huge positive and the master bath is wonderful. The kitchen was well-equipped though the pots and pans have been heavily used and due for replacement. With a 14-day stay, the very new washer/dryer was another welcome amenity, both for our clothes as well as the numerous and included bath AND beach towels. We also used the beach chairs and umbrella for the short 2-block walk to the 27th St. beach. The covered parking spot is KEY, especially over the July 4th holiday!
Del Mar is one of the nicest beach communities in the nation, if not globally, with a small town vibe and simply beautiful sandy (no rocks) beaches. From their condo, we walked into town to enjoy local favorite Bully's, the Board-N-Brew, Stratford Court, as well as Jake's, Starbucks, Bruegger's Bagels, the Brigantine and the Del Mar Fair (pretty crowded/busy). A bit further walk/short drive north to Solana Beach and we were at CPK, Rubio's and Roberto's. In addition, we took in the SD Zoo, Black's Beach, kayaking at the La Jolla Cove, etc.
We found two minor distractions. One: Camino Del Mar is pretty busy during the summer from about 8am-7pm thus there is traffic noise but this didn't bother us and it's mostly very quiet at night. Two: The three TVs are older picture tube TVs, not HD flat screens, but this didn't bother us either as we frequently used their WiFi for Netflix or YouTube access over our devices.
Tammy and Bruce were a true pleasure and were very responsive prior to our trip as well as with a few questions during the first few days in their condo. It's very clear that they want to ensure that their guests have a great vacation and that they take pride in their vacation home.
Thanks, Tammy and Bruce, for sharing your home with us! We had an absolutely wonderful and memorable vacation and hope to return for future getaways!!"
