We enjoyed our month long stay at this condo very much. Everything was as described, or better.
The condo itself was cozy and relaxing. We felt comfortable and it is well stocked with kitchen items, towels, beach items/toys, etc. The complex is clean and quiet.
The heated pool, hot tub, and workout building are right off the back patio and within view of the condo...which we loved. The complex has a large deck over seeing the ocean with an indoor view room right below it. Beautiful and convenient at sunset. The beach access itself was what I expected. There are quite a few stairs but we were prepared for it because we had read the other reviews. We have a 1.5 year old daughter and the steps were way too much for her to climb herself...no problem, we just carried her. I can see how this might be an issue with more than one small child, someone old, or out of shape.
I was very pleased as we explored with how many things were "walk-able". We walked everywhere most days! One of my favorite places was Solana Beach Coffee Company. Its a little building up the street that sells breakfast, lunch, coffee, smoothies, etc. We walked there every single day with our dog and stroller for our morning coffee. Cedros Design District is walking distance and has many shops and restaurants worth checking out. And we loved the Sunday farmers market. Fletchers Cove is a 15 min walk away with a pretty view of the ocean/beach access, clean public restrooms, children's playground, and grass areas. We also walked in to downtown Del Mar multiple times for shopping, food, and to hangout at Powerhouse Park/Beach. The snack shop there has yummy ice cream cones and they have a playground for children. Oh, I could go on and on. We had no problem keeping busy during the month, and even left feeling like there was still more we would have liked to try.
Dog Beach was just a few minutes walking distance and my dog LOVED it. There were many people with friendly dogs for my dog to play with.
One thing to be aware of is that the complex asks that you take your dog off the property to go potty. So, not only away from the yard of your condo, but completely through the gates of the complex.This was easy for us. But if your dog needs to go out a lot or is picky about where he goes, you might need to think about this.
Margaret was great to rent from. Very kind and understanding. Great communication through out the whole process.
