About the property

Ocean view from patio and all 3 bedrooms at DMBC with private beach acces

Enjoy this unique opportunity to live the beach lifestyle and be up-close-and-personal with the Pacific Ocean.

Come and experience this incredibly beautiful and newly upgraded owner-occupied ocean view property in Del Mar Beach Club - the most desirable oceanfront complex in Solana Beach. The complex consists of 4 swimming pools, 2 tennis courts, a gym, 2 Jacuzzis, 4 saunas and a private beach access.

At this tri-level 3BR/2.5 bath condo towered higher than other similar properties; not only can you see the ocean from the patio and all bedrooms upstairs, you can also feel the persistent ocean breeze in the house. All amenities and appliances in the entire property were upgraded with tasteful beach accents, along with amazingly cozy and familiar Pottery Barn or Crate and Barrel furniture and beddings. This elegant and spotlessly clean condo is truly your home away from home.

As you walk into the condo (recently renovated in 2016), you will immediately feel the openness of the condo, as the Patio, Living Room, Dining Room and Kitchen are set apart only by a 3-stepped staircase. You can choose to relax on a lounge chair and/or enjoy a sunset dinner by the patio. Alternatively, just sit back on a leather recliner or the new feather down sofas sipping wine in front of a flat screen TV atop a working fireplace in the Living Room. In the meantime, the Master Chef will not miss out on any of the family actions in the open kitchen and dining area. Your privacy will also not be compromised by other invited guests who undoubtedly love the modern powder room adjacent to the laundry closet.

As the bamboo wooden floor leads you up to the 3 bedrooms upstairs, the Master bedroom opens up to a private balcony where you can secretly enjoy a well-deserved solitude. Other family members or friends are also treated with an unobstructed view of the Del Mar Racetrack and the Pacific Ocean in the 2nd bedroom. In the 3rd bedroom, they can occasionally take their eyes off their books admiring the ocean and breathing in crisp fresh ocean air while sitting on the comfortable queen size bed. Two bedrooms are furnished with TVs and DVDs. Both master suite and second full bathrooms are conveniently located next to the bedrooms.

There are 4 parking spots right in front of the condo to make it easier for you to carry your groceries.

About Kirsty Tan

While living in the beautiful coastal town of Solana Beach with both of my children, I work as an international visiting professor in Asia, Australia and Europe. As a family, we believe life is about love. We laugh a lot and strive for life-long learning.

Kirsty Tan purchased this condo in 2012

Why Kirsty Tan chose Solana Beach

As new comers to San Diego in 2011, we fell in love with the small town feel of Solana Beach. Del Mar Beach Club stood out amongst all cliff top complexes in Solana Beach. This complex sits atop a bluff with view spanning from La Jolla to Oceanside, and provides the convenience of a private stairway leading down to the beach and all essential beach amenities. After renting for a year in Del Mar Beach Club, we decided to make this effortless elegant condo our home.

What makes this condo unique

We love sleeping with the sound of thundering ocean waves and waking up to crisp sea breezes in all bedrooms. The ocean view outdoor patio is ideal for enjoying peaceful family meals. The entire house has recently been renovated tastefully reflecting timeless elegance.

outstanding place--beautiful, clean, well located and with everything you could possibly need

  • 5 of 5

It is very clear that this property is owner managed--it is very clean and extremely well stocked. It is every bit as nice as the pictures make it look. We were there during an unusually cold February spell: our kids loved the outdoor pool and the heated hot-tub, spending hours going back and forth between the two. Parking is very easy and convenient. I recommend the property without hesitation. One comment: My parents visited briefly, which caused me to realize that it is a fairly significant stair climb down to the beach for a less mobile person--but it is a beautiful beach. There are other beaches in within short driving distance if this is an issue. I would definitely stay there again. Thank you Kristy for your wonderful hospitality.

Amazing location near beach

  • 5 of 5

This property has an amazing location, close to the beach and pools in the complex. It’s a short drive to all the necessities (groceries, restaurants, gas, coffee). There is also a beach boardwalk and a very neat little area with shops and art galleries close by. This property doesn’t look directly out to the ocean, but it’s a very close walk down to a private beach area. The beach area is quiet and sparcely populated, although there were plenty of surfers in the water in the early morning hours. We even caught several glimpses of dolphins out swimming amongst the surfers. The home itself is very clean and has all of the amenities you could ever need. It has a fully stocked kitchen with all necessary cooking items and there are condiments in the refrigerator for guests to use. There is a large dining area and plenty of space in the kitchen for a family to prepare a meal. Upstairs, the three bedrooms and two bathrooms were clean and fully stocked with bathroom necessities. The home is older, but well maintained, and the owner does a good job of making sure guests have everything they may need for their stay (ie. beach towels, beach toys, laundry soap). We had a couple issues during our stay and the homeowner was always available by text and was quick to respond. We will definitely consider staying in this home next time we return to this area.

Great home and location - fantastic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week! Kirsty's home is very well furnished with everything we needed for a great week at the beach. The Del Mar Beach Club has 3 pools, 2 large gas grills and a lovely lounge overlooking the beach which is the perfect place to watch the sun set. The dog beach is just a short walk down the beach around the cliffs and offered us hours of entertainment. The kitchen has every pot, dish and appliance you could need. We are planning on being yearly visitors as there is so much to do and explore. Thank you Kirsty for sharing your home!

We had a great stay in Del Mar!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was perfect for my family of 5. Condo was clean and just as pictured. Kitchen had everything you needed to prepare meals. Beach access was closed which is the only negative of our stay. We had to use public beach access up the street. The beach allows dogs at one end of beach. Beach is beautiful and everything you need for the beach is there for you to use. The area is great, Whole Foods and many restaurants within 5 minute drive. You can drive to most other areas of San Diego in 20 minutes. We went to Naval base, Zoo, Ocean Beach and kayaked in La Jolla. My boys surfed in Delmar with Fulcrum Surf. Restaurants enjoyed - Jake's at DelMar, California Pizza Kitchen, OB Noodle House, The Taco Stand, and The baked Bear and VG Donut & Bakery. We loved the condo and the area and would definitely rent again.

A wonderful gathering spot

  • 4 of 5

This unit is updated and nicely decorated, making it a lovely spot to gather family and friends. The huge kitchen/dining area ,living room with fireplace, and patio made this a wonderful spot to linger over coffee or to play games. The kitchen was well stocked with spices and condiments. Thank you for a great week!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Kirsty worked with us to make a last minute booking happen and the place was so nice for our family. Everything you could need and we enjoyed the beach and the pools on the property. There were beach chairs, boogie boards and an umbrella for the beach. The place was spotless and beautifully decorated, with plenty of room for our family of 5. The stairs to the beach could be a problem for some for accessibility if you can't do stairs but it certainly wasn't an issue for us and the stairs lead to an amazing beach with few people around. Patio had a nice view of ocean.
