We are a family of 5 who often travel together. On this occasion, we were travelling to San Diego to visit family who live there. This property in Solana Beach caught our eye first because it was away from the downtown area, right on the beach in a very upscale neighborhood without the upscale price. The pictures do not do this property justice. Not only is the property VERY CLEAN, it is nicely furnished with comfortable furniture, bedding, and updates appliances. The owners have provided many extras that you do not find in every homeaway property (believe me...we have stayed in many)! There was laundry detergent, coffee, condiments, etc. that made it very easy for guests (like us) who arrived at 10:30 at night and couldn't find a grocery store that was open that late. As for the late arrival, the owner again made it very easy as no one had to meet us there to give us a key. The property itself sits on one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in San Diego county, and it is a very short drive to downtown, or further up the coast to neighboring points of interest. The property offers a lovely clubhouse that allows you an unobstructed view of the sunset over the beach (when it's cold out) or you can just sit on the benches outside when the weather is nicer. We were there in December so we actually did both. There is also access to the beach and pools on property. The property also gave us 2 covered parking spaces right in front of the unit, and plenty of guest spaces right behind the unit. The owner made herself available by phone or text in the event we had questions or problems. We communicated with her a few times for general reasons. We did not experience any problems during our stay. The owner is very nice, has a funny sense of humor (read her activity/rules booklet), and even provides a notebook for her guests to leave their thoughts...simply lovely :) We are already planning our next trip out to San Diego...and we WILL WITHOUT HESITATION book this property again. Thank you Stephanie for going above and beyond to provide a great experience for your guests :)
This large, comfy home was the perfect choice for me to spend the holidays with my family who live only a few blocks away. Close to my favorite gourmet market and the beach, the house also offers spectacular sunsets from the deck off the master bedroom. June is a charming, considerate host who goes out of her way to make her guests feel welcome. I hope I have the opportunity to stay in this lovely home again.
