Perfect Location - Perfect Owners

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend renting from these owners as they were truly outstanding.

All communications were answered promptly and issues resolved without hesitation.

The location is perfect as the complex has it's own secure access to the beach.

And the beach is one of the best in the Del Mar/Solana Beach/Cardiff area.

There are plenty of outstanding restaurants within walking distance and a short drive away.

As far as the unit, it has everything you need. Full kitchen, great Wifi and cable TV, washer and dryer in unit, Grill, a nice partial view of the ocean, corner unit, 2nd floor, must be able to walk up and down stairs, no elevator. Even has it's own single stall parking space which is close to the unit. Once every two weeks maid service was included. Leashed dogs are welcome on the beach. The sunsets from the beach can be breath taking. If you need a gym to workout highly recommend the "Fit Athletic Club" is only a two blocks away (5min walk). Also if you like to go to the movies highly recommend the Cinepolis Luxury Cinemas, Del Mar. 15 minute drive away. Best movie theater ever been to. And if you want a nice Italian dinner before the movie recommend Davanti Enoteca in the same complex as movie theater.

Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

This condo is located on a gorgeous stretch of Solana Beach, perfect for your morning walk prior to heading out to explore San Diego- or a lovely sunset walk at the end of a busy sight-seeing day. I-5 is moments away and provides quick and easy access to all you want to do and see in San Diego! The owner (Alise) is very accessible by text should you have a question, and her response is almost immediate.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We liked staying at this beach condo in Solana Beach. A convenient walk to shops and a short drive to groceries and restaurants. We spent the whole time at the beach, the pool, and the hot tub! Very clean and well stocked for a small family like ours. My only wish was more windows to open to catch the breeze, not just the screen door that opened onto a terrace that was not very private. The whole complex was designed that way. It probably would have been more comfortable but there was a heat wave when we were there - which made for great beach days but a little stuffy in the condo. Heat waves are not too common in SD so our experience may have been unusual. The washer/dryer in the unit made it hotter so we ended up using the common laundry room a few times so the beach towels would be ready for another trip to the beach and pool! The owner was very responsive and helpful.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that you and your family had a nice vacation! There are three large pedestal fans in the condo and ceiling fans in every room. With the front and back doors open there is always a nice cross breeze as well. The beach is at least 10-15 degrees cooler than the rest of San Diego so it is very easy to keep the condo nice and comfortable.

Fantastic condo. Super clean and user friendly. The owner kept all cabinets stacked with basic cooking ingredients, cleaning supplies and towels -- which for a family of 5 can be extremely convenient. The use of the barbecue was convenient and the location with a beautiful beach only 100 yards away was great for the kids. Beautiful sunsets. Only downfall was that we were not aware that June in that area is called "gloom June" since there is a lot of marine layer that will not dissipate. Ocean water was very pleasant and around 65 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit for this time of the year. Kids really liked it. Only downfall is the military helicopter traffic but one can get used to it.

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

Great location. The unit was clean and well equipped with kitchen, bath and laundry supplies. Quiet complex, nice sized unit, nice quiet beach. A little inconvenient that the only bathroom was not next to the master bedroom. Would definitely come here again.
