About Dan Monaco

My husband and I are both originally from San Diego. We currently live in the Palm Springs area and we both work in real estate. We have two kids and five amazing grandkids, who we are head over heels for! We still have family in San Diego and we come down often to visit them and to enjoy our Del Mar Beach Condo.

Dan Monaco purchased this condo in 1999

Why Dan Monaco chose Del Mar

We are originally San Diego natives. A job transfer moved us to the Palm Springs area 30 years ago. We wanted desperately to have roots in San Diego and so we purchased the beach condo in 1999 to have a place to come back to. Many family vacations have been spent in this condo and now our family, including the grandkids, enjoy this condo with us!

What makes this condo unique

When we found the beach condo, we instantly fell in love with the location. It's a half a block from the most gorgeous beach in San Diego and with great restaurants nearby, a bench on the front balcony and an outside shower, you never need to leave! Although if you do, it's a hop away from so many activities that San Diego has to offer, including the Del Mar Fairgrounds just behind the condo. Even though you'll likely want to spend much of the day at the beach, we loved that our condo was spacious, offering everything we needed for a family to stay. The master bedroom is rather large, and with two full bathrooms, a large family area, and a full kitchen, it's the perfect spot to spend a holiday or a long weekend with the family. We fell in love with Del Mar the moment we drove up to this condo, and we've been in love with it ever since. We hope you enjoy the beach just as much as we do!

Condo is located close to town, 1 block from the beach and has lots of beach equipment. Was very clean and roomy. However, if you are looking for a quiet vacation, this is not the place for you. Building is located on a busy street. Walls are paper thin and traffic noise was constant, as was the noise from upstairs neighbors. Also, TV in master and ice maker were not working. There were no ice trays available to make our own ice. Both problems were reported to owner, but were not fixed during our 5 night stay. For this price, I expected more.

We were in Del Mar for a reunion and needed a place for the six of us (my wife and I and our four kids). This was a wonderful condo with everything we needed and we felt at home immediately.

Here for a reunion in January, so we didn't care about beach access, but missed having some sort of outdoor space. Misled by the picture that looks like a deck or balcony but is actually the common walkway in front of the apartment. Also would have been helpful if there had been some instructions for media. We wanted to watch a video but could not figure out how. Called Dan for help, but no answer.

Perfect place for us! location was ideal -- across the street to the best beach and 10 minutes walk along the beach to the darling town of Del Mar! Condo was darling and stocked with everything we would ever have needed. We will be back for sure! Kitchen was great for our holiday cooking and even a whole foods around the corner.

Great place..

  • 4 of 5

Clean and updated unit. Easy walking distance to the racetrack which is why we were there. Thought the price was too high. Paid $500 a night. Normally it's $250-$300.

Owner's Response: Hi, Thank you for your review. The price was increased due to Del Mar hosting the Breeder's Cup this year. All prices in the area increased for this event. Thanks for staying with us, Dan Monaco
