Why Barbara Nelson chose Solana Beach

We have lived in other areas of San Diego, but truly feel that North County Coastal offers it all! This owner managed home in Solana Beach is close to the racetrack, numerous beaches, many attractions, great restaurants, and close to the freeways which means you are located not far from anywhere you want to be.

What makes this house unique

Guests commonly tell us that this property feels like a private, peaceful resort.

The views are hard to beat. This coveted property overlooks the protected San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve, one of the regions largest coastal wetlands with over 700 species of plants, animals, and awe-inspiring rare and migratory birds. It is only a short walk away with 7 miles of terrific hiking trails (with naturalist guided Weekend Walks) and the solace of nature. Solana Beach has miles of scenic paths for biking, walking, and/or running.

Review of property

  • 5 of 5

The property is well maintained and in a great location in Solana Beach. It felt like a large 3BR casita at a nice resort. The courtyard is very private and well designed for outdoor dinners. The private street was quiet. Everything was considered in the planning of the property and the hosts were very considerate and thorough during our stay. We highly recommend this property for other visitors.

Loved This House!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked this quiet, private Solana Beach home with two other couples for a week. Every inch of this home is beautifully appointed and immaculate. The bedrooms/bathrooms are laid out to allow plenty of privacy for everyone, and there is also lots of space to congregate in either the gorgeous kitchen/dining area, the cozy living room, or the relaxing outdoor patio.

It was easy to take advantage of all that the San Diego area has to offer from this location. You do need a car to get around but we never felt like we had to drive very far to see the sights. We were able to easily visit Balboa Park, downtown San Diego, Coronado Island, Torrey Pines National Park, Shelter Island, and of course, several beautiful nearby beaches.

There is such a wide variety and number of fabulous restaurants in the area that we had trouble deciding which ones to try. I can honestly say that we were never once disappointed, which is really saying something, coming from a bunch of Chicagoans. One night after an especially long day of sightseeing we decided to try to cook dinner at the house, which turned out to be really fun.There's a big grill on the patio and the kitchen was extremely user friendly. The house has a great sound system, too.

As in most cities there were many opportunities for shopping, but Solana Beach has a particularly charming shopping area called Cedros Avenue Design District. The shops, boutiques, and galleries are all unique, with interesting one-of-a-kind merchandise and artwork. Definitely worth a visit.

The owners of this home were extremely nice and very accommodating with our needs and schedule. It was a pleasure to work with them and we were so grateful to have found such a perfect spot. All six of us highly recommend this lovely home and beautiful San Diego!
