Why Nina Detrow chose Del Mar
Everyone loves the LOCATION at Coast Blvd at the corner of 18th & Coast Blvd. Right ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE BEACH and walking distance to the park, restaurants and shops! There are no stairways to the beach ... it is less than 100 yards. The ocean front playground at Powerhouse Park is one of a kind. Kids love to watch the trains go by and moms & dads can enjoy the ocean surf. The restaurants close by are anything from Starbucks, to pizza to fine dining! Del Mar is a very family friendly community. Our state of the art lifeguard station at 17th Street has showers and restrooms, not to mention the nicest staff ready to help you with any questions! The Del Mar lifeguards are truly the best! This property lets you experience the true ambiance of Old Del Mar including the Coaster Train. It is only one mile to the Del Mar Race Track and Fairgrounds. This complex has ten individually owned units. Relax in the heated spa or take a dip in the swimming pool. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and flat screen TV. Bring your laptop for the free wifi internet connection. If you need toddler supplies; we have a pack-n-play and a high chair for you.

Excellent service / Excellent location
Nina and crew provide excellent service and their service elevates this to a four star property in my mind. We had a few items of concern and each one was addressed very promptly:
1. I noticed late the first night that one of the bedrooms was missing a smoke detector so I ran out to buy one. As soon as I mentioned this to Nina, she promptly refunded a portion of my stay to cover the cost of the smoke detector.
2. The tv screen had a black bar on one side. Again, as soon as I mentioned this, they had someone out the very next morning to measure it for replacement.
3. Someone was parked in our spot in the garage and they went door to door to find the person and have them move the car.
The service here is wonderful!
The location is wonderful! You can literally walk to the beach in just a couple minutes. For example, my 6 year old and I walked from the beach, back to the condo so she could use the bathroom, and back in the 10 minutes before sunset one evening. There also a couple restaurants within walking distance and the entirety of downtown Del Mar is within walking distance.
There are many details here that add to this rental - soaps / shampoos in the bathrooms, like at a hotel, games in the kid's room, baby equipment in the kid's room (I forget what specifically since our's our past that age, but I think there was a highchair and a bed rail), sand toys for the kids, beach chairs, beach umbrella, grill, etc.
There are a couple of items that I didn't enjoy that I believe are worth mentioning. Perhaps these are a matter of opinion more than anything ...
1. The slipcovers on the furniture in the family room feel a bit sloppy as they don't fit well. This is in contrast to the kitchen that appears nice and updated.
2. You can't really see anything outside. This is by design as the glass on the front of the unit is frosted to keep peering eyes out, and the wall around the porch is high to keep eyes / people out. I get those reasons, but it feels like you're a bit hemmed in while in the unit. But who really needs to be in the unit - it's San Diego - go outside!
3. The showerhead in the master bathroom is broken. I forgot to mention this while we were there, but I'm going to email them and I'm sure it'll be addressed promptly. We showered downstairs (much better shower - it was also VERY hard to get the correct water temp in the MB shower) all week instead.
If we ever return to San Diego, we'd likely rent this unit again.
Stay in Del Mar
Great location and clear instructions provided and suggestions offered. Close to the beach and retail within walking distance. The condo itself worked well; having a designated, covered parking spot was useful, too. The only negative comment would be the condo was a little musty or something. Enjoyed our stay, and the price was very reasonable.
Great location, great price, great management
The place was super nice, clean, and had great amenities. From clean towels, beach chairs, and boogie board we had everything we needed.
We love this location! An extremely quaint gated community with an awesome hot tub and pool area, and two parking spots for our car. Not to mention about 100 feet from the beach.
Nina was really easy to work with - very prompt in returning my calls/emails, and even left us a super cool surfboard cutting board!
We had the best time on vacation here and will absolutely be returning to this location.
Comfy condo close to the beach!
Wow! We had an outstanding visit to Del Mar at Nina's place. First of all, when she says this is the best location, she's right: it is just a block to the beach, or two blocks to restaurants. Even though this was a business trip in Feb/March, the water was so close that I had to walk across the street to soak it up before and after work. I loved walking down to Torrey Pines along the beach at low tide. Ok, more about the condo. Beautiful light throughout the place. Three spacious bedrooms, big clean and comfy beds, family room with tv, and a fully equipped kitchen -- with coffee and tea provided to smooth my arrival. It has decks and balconies. BBQ grill. Two parking spaces. Pool and hot tub. Laundry in the condo. It's a home away from home. There is really everything you need to have a good time. We spent two weeks here -- and we would have stayed longer if we could!
great location, disappointing condo
My family (3 adults and 3 kids ages 6, 4, 2 months) stayed here for mid winter break. We were a bit disappointed to be honest given how many amazing reviews there are of this place. The location is wonderful - we had a great time walking to shops and the beach. However, the place was pretty worn and run down in a lot of ways and was lacking in many simple things. First of all, the heat didn't work for 2 nights which was frustrating given it was in the 40s at night. The thermostat was out of battery, but we didn't know that - shouldn't some one check that before renters come? It was fixed eventually and they did deliver space heaters (not ideal with little kids running around). Also, some things were broken - some beach toys, the beach umbrella and we would have really appreciated a smaller cooler, zip lock bags or tupperware or aluminum foil to transport food to the beach, a beach cart (the people rending across the walk from us had all these things), a laundry drying rack, and a laundry basket or two. The laundry machine and dryer was also extremely old and didn't function well, which is a must when traveling with kids, especially at the beach! We have rented in many different places and have found these things pretty standard especially in a place catering to families. All in all, I would not rent here again.
Good idea - we should have tupperware! There was aluminum foil in the cabinet. If you wanted a smaller cooler, we would have brought one to you. We do have a wagon if you had asked. We would have brought you a new umbrella or beach toys or anything. We would have brought you anything you asked for, but you didn't ask us or let us know.
It is hurtful when someone just posts a sad review, when you didn't give us a chance to help you. We have never been asked for a drying rack or a clothes basket? But we would have brought you one if that would have helped your stay.
We apologize for your one night with no heater, but it was the first cold night in a long time. Space heaters delivered first thing in the morning. I am sorry you don't want to return, but when you rent your next home, please alert the owners of any issues you have. That's pretty standard to give us a chance to respond.
Sorry you didn't like your welcome gift? Most renters love them. I am TRULY sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. We are very conscientious and try to make sure everyone has a great time as you can see by the other reviews.
We had a wonderful time! Great condo!
