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.

Wonderful bright condo

  • 5 of 5

Wife, dog, baby and I stayed for a month and loved it. The condo is spacious with plenty of light and a well kitted out kitchen. Alise was a pleasure to deal with and always responsive. Can't wait to return! Thank you.

Doggy vacation

  • 4 of 5

The place is really nice. Was disappointed that the pool and common area were closed the whole week we were there. Beach was nice and the 175 stair steps was a good workout every time you needed to come off beach to go to bathroom. There was not a lot of places to walk to get food since, but we made it work. With the new rules about pets not being allowed on terrace or any barking we were scared to ever leave them alone in condo so we basically stayed with them the entire time. Overall the place had everything you need for a relaxing vacation. I would say this is a place for people that just want to relax and read books and hang with your dogs. Very quiet at night

Owner's Response: Hi, I'm sorry the pool was closed for unexpected repairs, it was a very unusual situation (our pool is always open!) and I happily compensated you for the inconvenience. Dogs are not allowed to bark excessively (to the point of nuisance) in our complex. I don't think you had to take yours everywhere with you, unless they are extremely barky dogs (Personally, I do have one of these, so I know how it is, and I would probably take her everywhere too, rather than leave her to annoy the neighbors ). I'm so glad you had a nice time on your visit though!

An amazing getaway to make memories!

  • 4 of 5

The condo in solana beach was so wonderful and cozy! It was stocked with all the essentials like spices, appliances, propane for the wonderful BBQ and more than enough detergent, paper towels and Toilet paper! The large dining room table and open floor plan was great for our family; giving everyone room to spread out while still being together! The bean bag was also a great addition! The ocean view was wonderful, we never wanted to shut the curtains it was that beautiful! The pool and hot tub were great amenities and the walkability was on point perfect. It was also nice having the washer and dryer in the unit, they came in handy!! The only things that prevented this from giving this a 5 star was the BBQ lines were disconnected when we got there; so after realizing it wasn't heating up, we had to connect them. Additionally the only other thing that would have been nice would have been a window in the second bedroom. We could not figure out how to get the ceiling fan to work in that room so it got a tad stuffy at night. But I will say the unit was wonderfully stocked with ample fans and heaters if needed. It was a wonderful vacation and we could not have asked for a cuter condo to spend it in. We will most definitely, 100% be back!!
