  • New Years at Solana Beach

    "This place is beautiful. It has a nice, open feel, with a consistent theme to the interior design. It has a great location on the bluff above the ocean. The stairs down to the beach are right next to the unit, making it extremely convenient to access the beach. We were two couples, and we never felt crowded or in each others' way. Lot's of room when someone needed some privacy and quiet time. The kitchen was huge, and I was very impressed with the pantry supplies. Was a little disappointed with the cooking pans, but that's a minor issue. Cooked half our meals in the unit, and found a great selection of restaurants in Solana and the neighbouring towns. Shopped for our groceries at Vons, a few minute drive away, which had a huge selection of everything we needed, including an impressive wine section with lots of sale options. The I-5 takes you down to San Diego in about 20 minutes, so you never feel like its a long drive (just watch out for rush hour). The only reason we didn't give the unit a 5 star rating was due to a couple issues with the hot water tank and water pressure in the ensuite shower. But these concerns were passed on to James and dealt with immediately after we checked out. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this rental, and we will certainly look to rent this place when we come back to SoCal in the future."

  • Just a Wonderful Find

    "This is our third trip to the Solana/Del Mar area and this condo surpassed everyone of our expectations. The view was exceptional at this time year gracing us with spectacular sunsets every night as we sipped wine on the balcony. The artwork in every room brought the area highlights indoors. Avanti meet our every need. The colors throughout the condo also suggested a desire to reflect the area's atmosphere. The blues found in the glass tiles of the kitchen and the color of the sofas cemented the feeling of being on the ocean. We were there for 8 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The beds were quite comfortable and sleeping with the sound of breaking waves could not be more relaxing. One evening we had our son and his friends over and everyone was in complementing the place. Everything one could need for a vacation was provided from games to beach chairs. Just a WONDERFUL find. I will not hesitate to stay again if I have the opportunity!"
