Recent Solana Beach reviews
A beautiful place to stay!
"I usually don't write reviews, and this one is long overdue - but I was looking back at photos from our wonderful trip back in April 2014 (I had to submit this as a 2015 review but it was in 2014) and realized that I should submit a review, as a thank you to Brent for his wonderful hospitality.
The condo has a great location within a very quiet and secure complex - just a short drive away from some beautiful beaches, and a short drive to downtown Del Mar. And if you don't feel like driving, the beach is easily accessible by walking down a long staircase from the complex.
The condo itself is clean, spacious and comfortable - there is a big comfortable couch for lounging and watching TV, a large dining room table to accommodate many guests, and a beautiful, upgraded kitchen that is well stocked. The condo has a great layout if you have children - the bedrooms are on one half of the condo, on either side of a hallway - so they can nap or sleep early while you still hang out in the living room/kitchen area. The beds were comfortable and the master bedroom was large enough for us to take an extra mattress and put in on the floor so our daughter could sleep with us while our friends slept in the other room.
One of the best features of the condo is the view from the living room deck - and the small sectional on the porch, so you can drink your coffee or glass of wine while listening to the ocean or watching the dolphins.
This condo has everything that I could have wanted in a beach rental - a designated parking space, washer/dryer, well appointed kitchen, comfortable beds, and a comfortable place to lounge at night - along with a great view of the ocean, walking distance to the beach and a swimming pool. The swimming pool was great.
To top it all off, Brent was so responsive and courteous - it was very easy to book the rental, the instructions for obtaining the keys were clear - and he and his wife (and their cute little dog) were so nice and friendly. I definitely will stay here again the next time I'm in San Diego."

"We rented this place for a month in early January because my husband was having surgery at UCSD. I booked it in the fall and was told it was being remodeled and asked repeatedly for pictures and never got them. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The owners did a great job on the remodel and it's decorated tastefully. The kitchen is well stocked, although a few of the kitchen tools broke when we used them the first time (we replaced them). The bedrooms are good sized and there is tons of storage (the Master Bedroom carpet is "spotty" and looks like there have been pet stains) The TV's have 4 remotes which is too much in my opinion. I would have rated it a 5, but I'm docking it because of the experience we had the property mgr.
*she dropped the price immediately when I told her I wanted to rent for a month (by $2-3K as I recall)
*she gave us a bouquet of flowers & wine when we arrived
*repeatedly promised to send pictures of the remodel before we arrived and didn't
*brought people to view the property without telling me the day my husband was released from hospital. We let them look in, but asked them to come back since he had just gotten there and was still very uncomfortable. Then, she took then around back and they were peaking in through the windows - really uncool.
*my biggest gripe is the way the departure and security deposit were handled. She knew the day we were departing and was unresponsive via phone and text. I had a 10+ hour w/an ill husband and 2 pets to deal with and had no one to give the keys to. By 10, we finally left and I ended up taking a key with me. I forgot about it and mailed it several weeks later expecting my full deposit back since I went out of my way to clean the house before we left. A partial check arrived with no explanation of why $250 was missing. I asked for pics and an explanation & she claimed there was pet damage. I was dinged for dirt/dog poop on the outside porch (tile) and some close-up spot that doesn't even look like it is in their apartment. My pets didn't do it!
Why have I waited so long to write this? My hubby just had his check-up and we won't need to rent the place again. Overall, great place. Watch out for your deposit!
The view of the ocean was great and it was fun to watch all the people coming and going in the beach parking lot below."

"The property and neighborhood are fantastic! We were able to walk to many locations within Solana Beach and even to the Del Mar fairgrounds, which is why we were visiting the area. The only drawback was no central air as it was rather hot the days we were there, but we adjusted to that fairly quickly. We had some trouble with the gate openers and the property manager was very helpful. Would love to stay here again in the future!"

"We spent (2 couples) 6 days here and wish it could have been much more! Sometimes a VRBO will show great pictures and when you get there you are disappointed. This location is not one of those spots at all. The views from the patio are amazing! We spent every night sitting on the back patio watching the sunset. The kitchen is fully stocked and beautiful. There is a grill on the back deck that provided dinner one evening. The pool and hot tub area was always quiet. In walking distance are many great breakfast, lunch, and dinner spots. Beach access is just a short 5 minutes walk. Book this place. You will not be let down at all!"
