Why Lauren Ranes chose Del Mar

All of the residents and visitors of this unique hidden gem agree! Our property is located on 13th Street overlooking the ocean, taking in deep breaths of ocean breeze, and perfectly situated in the center of all that our favorite city in the whole wide world has to offer!
What makes this House unique
There are various options in Del Mar when choosing a home or hotel to accommodate you. Not many can offer you the location of 13th Street or deliver the amount of home you are looking for as you are away from home. The wood shakes on the outside of our custom home to the grassy yard placing you in the midst of the action and tranquility are disarming from the moment you set sights high on the property. Upon entering our home, you will know why we want to share the love of our life with our guests!

Thank you for allowing me to host your stay in Del Mar, and thank you for reviewing my home. Next time you're in town, you're always welcome to stay and play at my place!
Clean, quiet, by the beach
Thank you for letting us stay at your home, being a great host when needed, everything was really great. Been coming to Del Mar yearly for 7 years now, and this was by far the best. Thank you.
So happy to welcome you home, hosting your charming family was an absolute delight! Thank you for taking care of the house, and choosing my home to make your memories with! Looking forward to next time!
Fun in the sun
We had a lovely escape to Del Mar this Christmas. The house was bright and charming and we love the in town location. Also, two blocks from the walk down to the beach on 11th street!!
It was a happy holiday by the sea, indeed! So good to have you and I thank you for looking after the house so well. Your home away from home truly is in a great location to access the beach and all local attractions a short walk away. Looking forward to hosting you the next time your holiday plans include Del Mar!
Very nice and clean.
We enjoyed being so close to downtown Del Mar. The beach is just a ways down the street, so convenient! Also, it's so quiet.
I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for keeping the house so clean and for being such a pleasure to cross paths with. I do hope to have the opportunity to host you again. When your plans take you through Del Mar, please consider being my guest!
Horrible experience. Host isn't experienced in renter communication or maintaining a beach condo.
Though I don't usually write lengthy reviews, this experience warrants one.
Beware. She initially seems accommodating. Don't be deceived. You may lose a lot of money in retained deposits and leave feeling very misled. At the beginning of our inquiry , Lauren, the host, tried to steer us away from using VBRO, claiming to save us fees by using her Aero Venture America LLC contract. LUCKILY WE DID NOT DO THIS AND USED VBRO ALLOWING US TO WRITE A REVIEW AND WARN OTHERS! At arrival, Lauren gave a quick tour of the condo & also noted that we should keep the sink dry as it sometimes rusts. Although condo small & missing some kitchen essentials, most things seemed to be in order. Also you can see the ocean from the small deck, however, access to the beach is about a 15 min walk.
Next day, we noticed the outdoor cushions on the sofa were missing preventing us from full enjoyment of the outdoor deck. When questioned, Lauren said the previous renter's dog had soiled them all & replacements should come (they never did). Next day, I requested more beach towels & was told there should be 16 but we only counted 6.
20 days after check-out, we received an email stating that she was keeping our refundable deposit b/c of missing towels, damages & provided over 50 photos of walls with smudges, close-up photos of loose threads in carpet, small scratches on furniture, & other things that I know we did not do (or lack of communication on her part-basically a list of items that should be addressed with cleaning/pet fee/normal wear & tear).
The list goes on and on...
I caution anyone from staying here as the property manager is not trustworthy.
Although we thought we left the condo in great condition by washing all the towels, cleaning the refrigerator, wiping down all the counters, sweeping the floors, emptying the trash and stripping the beds, you will also want to wipe down all the walls/baseboards, take video of everything & make sure you review every aspect of the house with Lauren at checkin/out so there aren't any misunderstandings. Lauren left for Mexico during our stay & wasn't available at check-out. We have traveled the world yet we have never had someone try to take advantage of us like this. No receipts have been provided since our check-out on 8/8, 30 days ago. Nonetheless, Lauren has continued to rent the condo, even though she claimed we caused much damage, & is claiming she hasn't had it free yet for estimates, repairs or replacements.
It still pains me that our exchange was not a better experience. I am very disappointed that we could not accommodate our interaction adequately enough to redeem our relationship. I truly wish you and your charming family all the best in all the days on the horizon.
A great location , short walk to beach and restaurants/bars. Ocean views from deck and master bedroom. Close enough to hear the surf, quiet neighborhood. House is clean and setup well for renters.
Thank you for the review. It has always been a pleasure to host you all. You always leave the home spotless and you are a pleasure to run into in the neighborhood. Would love having you as full time neighbors, and truly did consider selling the property to you when asked! Looking forward to seeing you the next time we cross paths!
