Guestbook comments from the owner

Mary and I invite your comments on your visit to Solana Beach and your stay at our condo at Del Mar Shores Terrace. Our family enjoys leaving the desert of Arizona and relaxing at the oceanfront complex. It is a short walk from our condo to the top of the bluff above the Pacific Ocean where we watch the sun set and the dolphins and surfers play. Our grandchildren are quite a bit more active, but we enjoy entertaining on our large patio, nearby golfing as well as short walks to a fine selection of restaurants. The year-round temperatures are another attraction for us desert dwellers!

Again, please include your comments.

Fast Response from Owner; Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 (couple with 2 tweens) enjoyed our stay in this condo. The location is the best. Very close to the beach and excellent sunset view not too far away. However, the cleaning crew didn't do a good job before we arrived. The towel had terrible smell, the dining table was sticky, and it also smelled bad in the living room. I had to do some cleaning myself right after we arrived. Therefore, I cannot give a 5-star. However, the owner responded to my messages very quickly.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our property after your recent stay at our condo. Although very few of our previous guests (many of them repeat guests) have provided a written review, we have often been blessed with many positive comments regarding their stays at our condo. We are embarrassed and disappointed to receive our first complaint of the cleaning crew's preparation of the condo and plan to do whatever it takes to earn that 5 star rating in the future!

A great way to ring in the new year

  • 5 of 5

I've not written a review before but felt compelled to do so after staying here. The pictures are accurate and everything was clean and tidy when we arrived. We were visiting family in Del Mar so this was a great location. The condo was spacious and beds VERY comfortable. People at the complex were friendly and location is hard to beat. Most importantly the owner was great in communication and follow up.

There are great restaurants and shopping close by and our family (two "tweens") enjoyed our walks on the beach in the mornings!

One of the Best Locations on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed Gene's condo more than once. The location at Del Mar Shores is Super! We were here on record breaking temps & the dog beach was full, our boys (Aussie) had the BEST time. The large patio area is private even in a condo setting, plus the location of this condo allows for a Cool location. We have stayed in other units here & this is the BEST location, easy for us to take our boys out for walk to the street, like a Disneyland for Dogs next to the Dog Beach. There is a Doggie U Wash 1 block away & we even have a doggie Nanny 1 block away (super cheap). We love coming here & enjoy it everytime. thank u Debe for sharing Gene's rental, the BEST!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are senior citizens and we and our 11 old granddaughter just returned to Las Vegas from a week's stay at Gene's condo. The condo itself is beautiful and the accommodations were even better. There are king sized beds in each bedroom along with a love seat in the master and a chaise in the 2nd bedroom! Every room was clean and well-appointed with a TV in the living room and both bedrooms. Everything needed was already provided. We were close to everything including good restaurants, grocery stores, beach, and the race track! My granddaughter said this was the best vacation ever. Hope we can stay there again next year.

Owner's Response: We have received many nice comments from guests who have stayed at our condo. It provides us a warm feeling when guest express that they are experiencing some of the same enjoyment that we do when we visit Solana Beach. We particularly appreciate it when a guest will write down comments that can be shared with future guests.
