I Had reserved this condo primarily base on location and the ability to accommodate 3 couples with the bed Sizes in each room. I lived in the area during my college years and it is by far my favorite area of California. My wife and I had gotten engaged in Del Mar in 2011 and wanted to thank both sets of parents for having helped contribute to the wedding. What better than another week at the beach in Del Mar ?
Honestly, I was impressed by the photos, but they didn't give the Condo full justice. We were blown away!! Everything was clean, spacious, and inviting. Plenty of room to cook, lounge, and relax. A very nice BarBQ with propane supplied, large kitchen with plenty of space to entertain, a bar top with stools, and 2 covered gated parking spaces. Everything we needed was there; a blender for margaritas, beach chairs, etc. # separate bathrooms and showers, washer,dryer, etc. We made dinner ourselves most of the time, and walked to local restaurants the other nights. My wife, mother, and mother-in law WALKED to a local spa 2 blocks away and got massages while the boys hit up Torrey Pines Golf Course. We also went to the races which was literally a 5 minute drive- we could have walked there too!
The Location and price of this condo can't be beat.
I placed a deposit on the condo about a year in advance and the rental manager made things so easy. I'm actually a little depressed that I am back to reality; no more runs along the beach, walks through downtown Del Mar, or 50 meter treks directly to the sand off 18th street... Well, that is until next time we stay there!.. maybe then we will walk across the street to have a drink and catch the sunset at Poseiden or Jake's
As if it wasn't obvious, I cannot emphasize enough how wonderful our stay was!! And this beautiful condo, its amenities and location/price were HUGE reason why. The only negative is the withdrawal you will go through when your stay is over. I think I only lasted until the Lomas Sante Fe exit heading home on the 5 before I wanted to cry!!
