Recent Solana Beach reviews
"This condo is located in a wonderful area. Shopping, restaurants and beaches are all within walking distance. The photos are exactly what the unit looks like. The kitchen and living room are nicely decorated and the bathrooms are nicely tiled. I do think the master bedroom could use a little more of a decorative touch and the kitchen could be better stocked with some of the basics. We also enjoyed the pool, hot tub and tennis courts. The entire complex is clean and well maintained. The beach directly below the condo is wonderful for walking, beachcombing, sun bathing and playing in the surf. The owner was easily accessible by phone or text during our stay. Please be aware there is no AC and the fans lack at times to sufficiently cool the unit.....but at times there is a wonderful ocean breeze. We would recommend this property to friends/family."

"I rent a vacation home at least once a year and have never written a review, but this condo was a wonderful value and had those extras that deserve a few minutes of my time to comment. The posted pictures are nice but do not do the condo justice. It is open, pretty, comfortable and clean. What impressed me the most was the attention to the amenities. Some of the things that were provided for our use: LOTS of beach towels, cooler for the beach, beach umbrellas, sand toys, boogie boards, beach chairs and an abundance of clothes hangers. In addition the condo was stocked with QUALITY toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, detergents, trash bags and liquid hand soap at all the sinks. There was an abundance of towels, linens, and pillows. Any spices or cooking oils, etc., looked new and not just left by other renters over the years. This condo had the feeling that the owners lived here permanently and just let my family rent it for the week. Of great appreciation was the 2 bottles of beer waiting in the refrigerator for us after a long day of travel! We would definitely stay here again."

"My family and I have visited California many times but this was the best condo that we've stayed in. There were ocean views and the sound of waves from the family room, kitchen and master bedroom. Not only was that relaxing and beautiful, but it kept the condo nice and cool. Because it was the second floor, we could keep the sliding glass doors open at night to take advantage of the cool ocean breeze. It made for a wonderful night's sleep too.
The condo also had a nice floor layout and was beautifully decorated. (The photos online are outdated so we were pleasantly surprised by the decor when we arrived.) The large kitchen has granite counters and great appliances. The large couches were great for reading a book in the evening next to the ocean breeze or watching a movie together with the kids. There was also a nice connecting deck outside from the family room to the master bedroom.
The condo is located very close to the stairs down to the beach, which was very convenient, especially since we lugged down a beach tent, cooler and surfboards. I actually liked the stairs and my husband and I used them for exercise and eventually ran up them all the way. I found it rewarding!
We rented surf boards at Mitch's surf shop just a couple of blocks away. They have the best prices. I picked this location (Solano beach) because of the surfing conditions for new surfers. On the few days that we weren't at the beach, we visited the pier at Newport Beach, went to Disneyland, and went down to San Diego for dinner in Old Town.
We plan on staying at this condo every time we visit California! We loved it so much! Jeannie was a very pleasant and helpful owner. It was also very convenient to have the keys mailed to us before arriving."

"My wife and I stayed in the Earl condo for a couple of months each year for the past four years during the winter. We found it a great place to stay because it was in an excellent location with easy access to highways and stores and attractions. Solana Beach has a "small town" feel to it despite it's southern California location. The condo itself is very comfortable, clean, all appliances work and the deck is wonderful. The sun shines on the deck almost all day, plus in the winter you can watch the sun go down over the ocean. Beach access is very close. We found that Bari Earl, the owner, was extremely attentive if we ever had any problem with an appliance or a leaky faucet, etc. This did not happen often but any issues were dealt with immediately. I would highly recommend this unit to any visitor to the area. It will work well for couples or families with children."
