About Gail Steel

John and Gail Steel chose Surfsong and Solana Beach for our retirement years because we fell in love at first sight with the area and the lifestyle. Originally from Minnesota, we were looking for a vibrant, active community with an agreeable year-round climate. Having always lived on water, we were drawn to the Pacific and never tire of looking west.

Gail Steel purchased this condo in 2000

Why Gail Steel chose San Diego County

This isn't a rental, it's our home. Our friends and family are our favorite repeaters. They love this space too!

What makes this condo unique

It's a three minute walk to the beach, to shopping or to a variety of restaurants. You can go out for breakfast, lunch or dinner without a car.

Perfect Ocean Front Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is amazing! It is a corner unit right on a cliff over the water. We stayed there the first week of June with our two toddlers (ages 1 and 3) and it worked perfect for our family. The views are wonderful. I woke up each morning, sat on the patio with a cup of coffee and watched the early morning surfers. We also saw dolphins on a couple occasions. You can even see the ocean while standing in the kitchen cooking.

The condo itself is beautiful and very large for a one bedroom. We had our family over to grill out on the patio and easily fit 8 of us for lunch. We had a pack N play and a twin air mattress for the kids in the bedroom with us – that was tight but still better than a hotel room. It was stocked with handy supplies like a beach bag, pantry items, toiletries and beach towels.

It is just a short walk to the beach – you can either walk on a path in front of a few other condos (which ends in a staircase so isn’t ideal for a wagon) or a couple blocks on the sidewalk. Both take you to Fletcher’s Cove. You can find almost anything you need within walking distance – tons of restaurants, coffee shops and a CVS. We even walked to the San Diego County Fair at the Del Mar Race Track which is just under 2 miles away.

The condo community was very quiet. We rarely saw other people and those we did see were very friendly. And the unit itself is quiet too. There was a fair going on just a block away with live music and when we closed the windows we couldn’t hear it.

We would love to stay here again … and again!

We really enjoyed our week stay in this lovely, furnished, clean condo. The condo looked exactly as pictured, but the actual views from the patio do not do the pictures justice. The owners were very accommodating in every way. The beach was a 5 minute easy walk and very clean and the surrounding area was fun to explore. We would not hesitate returning in the future.

Wonderful Unit!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned after staying at this unit for 10 days and it truly is a gem. You are within easy walking distance to the beach, train station, many cafe's and restaurants and many many more activities. The unit itself is very nice with a modern style and is immaculately clean. The unit includes Cable TV in both the Livingroom and Bedroom with surround sound and it also has the ability to play your music from your mobile device.It also includes all cooking equipment needed to make a nice home-cooked meal whenever you may choose to make one. This truly is a WONDERFUL place to stay.

Beautiful Solana Beach

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to this property and we had a great time. This time we went to the beach at Carfdiff by the Sea and used the boogey boards. Really enjoyed the sunsets and jogging along Highway 101.

Outstanding Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed in this home for one week - the middle of June. The home sits on the bluff above the Pacific with a million-dollar view. This condo is updated, clean, very comfortable and well equipped. It is in a great location and within walking distance of restaurants - we loved Liz at the Beach Grass Cafe - a CVS Pharmacy, the Post Office, and the Fletcher Cove park and beach. The condo complex is well maintained with tennis courts and a sparkling clean pool and jacuzzi. The owner was very responsive with e-mails and returning our deposit. We highly recommend this VRBO!
