Great Views, Great Beach, Great Vacation
"We spent a week at this condo in July 2015 and had a terrific time. The "steps away" proximity to the beach meant that the two kids could spend lots of time in the sand and surf, while the adults could trade off parenting duty - very convenient! The condo itself was clean, well stocked and well appointed, and the views were unbelievable. We were fortunate to have some amazing sunsets! The central location made it easy both to food shop and to reach local attractions, although honestly we spent most of our time on the beach (which had a lifeguard on duty during the day while we were there - which was nice with the kids). The community was quiet, and the parking was really convenient. Jeanne was great to work with, and the rental process was pain-free. We hope to be able to return to this condo in years to come, and to stay longer next time!"

"We were very pleased with our rental. The communication with the owner before, during, and after our stay was premier. The condition of the condo was perfect and the owner met us there to show us around - she even left us a basket of goodies! The layout was great for a family and there was plenty of room for sleeping, eating, and relaxing. The location is perfectly convenient to everything in Solana Beach and a very short hop to downtown Del Mar. Easy access to the beach and nice pools. Walking distance to multiple restaurants and a CVS, which is very nice to have so we didn't have to drive everywhere. Can equipped with boogie boards, towels, etc. for the beach. We would recommend this condo to anyone seeking a week in paradise!"

"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."

"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."
