About Gina Mattern

This is me (Gina) in the kitchen of our condo. The smile on my face comes from having enjoyed a relaxing day in Del Mar.

Gina Mattern purchased this condo in 2002

Why Gina Mattern chose Del Mar

I grew up in La Jolla and we started taking our children back to San Diego to enjoy the summer beaches when they were very young. After renting for 7 summers, we purchased our condo in 2002. The children are grown now and the memories we created those summers are cherished. When we gather as a family, they always want to return to the beach!

What makes this condo unique

The ease of walking across the street to the beach or into town really makes this a relaxing place to stay. No getting in the car and finding parking! Sitting on the beach wall and enjoying a glass of wine, watching the sunset is one of my favorite past times.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As usual, Gina, we had a terrific vacation - thanks in large part to staying in your place. The location and place itself was great. Can't wait until next year. Have a great rest of the summer.

Perfect location, sweetly decorated

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of this condo. The walk to the beach is literally one short block, and unlike other towns in the North County, there are only about a dozen steps down to the sand. There was plenty of beach gear available to use- blanket, umbrella, toys, etc. There isn't much in the way of restaurants to walk to, but for us, being able to walk to the beach is most important, and this condo nails it!

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this lived up to our expectations. Perfect for our family of four with 1 tween and 1 teen. Everyone enjoyed our stay and wish it could have been longer. Super close to the uncrowded beach. Easy enough to get around to all the surrounding sites in San Diego. Having beach equipment on hand is a plus. Thanks for making our stay enjoyable. Hopefully we can come back soon.

fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this condo twice and will do it again just because of the location. It it right across the street from an absolutely gorgeous and very long beach for walking, swimming and enjoying a bottle of wine and cheese at sunset. The boogie boarding was fantastic and the condo come equipped with all the fun stuff for the beach including a wagon to carry it all in as well as an outside shower to clean all the sand off upon returning. Our favorite nearby restaurant was The Fish Market (an actual fish market & restaurant) and shopping was a day spent just up the road at Solana Beach's S. Cedros Ave. - with a treat with very unusual shops. A drive north or south along the coast is a real treat and we even went into San Diego - just a 25 minute drive on off hours to visit the world famous Zoo and tour the town. What a gorgeous area and don't miss an afternoon in LaJolla.

We stayed last June w/our 2 boys and loved the proximity to the beach and all the beach equipment available. The condo was clean and comfortable, can't wait to go back this summer.

Great Place

Needed a place to stay near the Del Mar Fairgrounds for my daughters graduation. Glad I found this condo, has a great location, it's nice & tidy. I would stay again if available on my next visit.
