About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Ocean Views And Walk To Beach

Enjoy our lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo in an ocean front complex on the bluffs of Solana Beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Walk down the brand new stairway to the beach.  Our unit is on the second floor and is all on one level.  The condo was totally remodeled and refurnished recently to reflect the casual beach lifestyle of Southern California.  This is the perfect vacation home for a family of 4 or 5 to enjoy the breathtaking views and myriad activities of Solana Beach and Del Mar.  The ocean view from the spacious front patio and both bedrooms is beautiful.  Listen to the sound of the surf, relax in the sunshine and watch for surfers and sea life.  We often see dolphins, pelicans and seals and have seen whales during the annual migrations.  More than 10 great restaurants are a short walk from the complex or enjoy cooking in the fully equipped kitchen.  The beach is a steps from the complex where you can swim, surf or sun bathe.  The Amtrak depot is within walking distance (20 min) and the train can take you to downtown San Diego and the Gaslamp district or Old Town.  The private gated complex reflects true resort living with it's oceanfront pool and clubhouse and beautifully landscaped grounds.  There is an outdoor shower as well as more showers in the clubhouse and even a sauna.  An onsite laundry room is available too.  Drink your morning coffee as you sit on the bluff listening to the sounds of the sea and watch the surfers catch a wave. Toast your day as you sip wine and grill dinner on the ocean view patio while watching the gorgeous sunset over the ocean. You will never want to leave!

About Christine

As a native San Diegan, it was always my dream to own a beach property. I grew up in San Diego and Hawaii as my father was in the Navy. I loved the ocean, and always wanted to be near it. Many of my vacations centered around the beach. I was thrilled when my husband and I were able to purchase our beautiful condo in Solana Beach. We are both veterinarians, and have 2 children in college. We enjoy traveling and meeting new friends, and are excited to share our second home with you. (We have used VRBO for the past several years to rent our other condo in Lake Tahoe, CA, and have found it to be a positive experience.)

Christine purchased this condo in 2012

Why Christine chose Solana Beach

I love the ocean and walking on the beach. I also love horses and show on the AQHA and APHA show circuits. Many horse shows that I compete in are in neighboring Del Mar. I can stay at my condo during show season, and share it with others the rest of the year. It is my personal vacation home, not a heavily used rental unit with lots of wear and tear.

What makes this condo unique

This property offers incredible ocean sights and sounds, and is one of only a few properties in the area with an ocean front pool. If you choose to enjoy the beach, its a short walk down the stairs or just stay and lounge by the pool while you gaze at the surf. You can walk to the Del Mar racetrack and fairgrounds, and to many restaurants. There is a lot to do without ever getting into your car.

Great Location for our Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this Solana Beach condo for our week long family vacation. There were 4 of us and there was plenty of room. My children are 6 and 4. Directions on how to get in were very clear. We arrived late at night and still were able to figure everything out relatively quickly. The condo was clean and had everything we needed. Pictures presented are exactly what you will get! The beach was steps away and my girls loved the heated pool/hot tub even though it was a bit chilly while we were there. I will caution that there are quite a few steps to get to the beach. My girls did great with them but we also tried to keep what we brought down to the beach to a minimum. Also, this is a perfect location. Short drive to downtown but out of the hustle and bustle for a nice relaxing vacation. I would absolutely recommend this condo.

Great location and well maintained condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at this condo. We were unsure where to stay for our San Diego area vacation and are so glad we ended up in Solana Beach. We had relatively easy access to downtown excursions as well as the various beach towns including Oceanside. It was great to be able to go down to a nearly private beach every evening and enjoy the pool and hot tub with great ocean views. The condo itself was very well maintained and well stocked with all the supplies you need for a vacation. We only had to buy groceries, no other paper good, toiletries, etc. The owners were very responsive throughout our booking and trip. I highly recommend this location.

This is a very well cared for and decorated condo in an excellent location. Lovely view of the ocean from the fairly private patio. I spent several wonderful weeks there and would definitely come back.

Annual Family Get away

  • 5 of 5

We love this place. Most of all the location!! The beach is at your door step, which is worth more than money can buy. You have everything you need within walking and driving distance. The condo is upgraded, clean and accommodates any family. I do laundry while there to save on packing. HIGHLY recommend this place!!!

Great location close to awesome beaches, friendly locals, shopping and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during February when there are less crowds and lucked out with great beach weather. We were within walking distance of a great coffee shop, CVS drugstore, many nice restaurants (casual and more upscale) and easy access to beaches. A little under a mile walk is Fletcher Cove beach with a playground and bathrooms. We saw whales migrating and dolphins from the shore., along with lots of surfers. The condo is beautifully decorated and well stocked. You can see peeks of the ocean from the patio outside the living area, which as a large patio table and grill. From the bedrooms, there are small balconies that seat one -- with sunshine in the afternoon (and slim peeks of the ocean through trees). It was lovely for relaxing on a cooler but sunny afternoon. The beds were very comfortable. You can hear the ocean from living room and the bedrooms which makes for a pleasant natural sound machine. We only heard the upstairs neighbors walking around a bit in the mornings, but it wasn't too disruptive. My favorite part was the drive south toward Del Mar on Camino Del Mar/Highway 101. The view of Torrey Pines beach as you come down the hill at Carmel Valley Rd. is breaktaking. I wish I saw that every day. Owners were very kind with great communication. Highly recommend.
