About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2), Gated Community with Covered Parking

Come for the Del Mar Race Season, or escape your cold winter weather at this relaxing beach town vacation rental next to the San Elijo lagoon in sunny California!

Watch the sun set over the Cardiff bluffs from the patio of this ground floor, single level unit, surrounded by pines and eucalyptus trees - you feel you are out in the country but you are actually just minutes away from the beach. This is the best location in the complex - quiet and nestled back against the hillside.

The condo is very clean and features granite countertops, wood laminate and tile floors, woodburning fireplace, spacious walk-in closet in the bedroom, and a cozy outdoor patio. The bedroom has a select-comfort king bed. This is a gated community with parking for 1 car in the covered carport and plenty of guest parking in front of the unit.

Enjoy all the amenities including pool, jacuzzi, workout room, picnic area and barbecues. Local Cardiff beaches are a short drive around the lagoon, and the Del Mar Race track is 4.8 miles. Trader Joe's, Sprouts Market, Ralph's, and other great stores are 2 miles up the road.

- Play tennis and racquetball with courts just steps from the front door

- Take a walk and view birds and wildlife at the San Elijo lagoon

- Spend the day at the track/fairgrounds or explore the beach

- Buy fresh flowers at the local farmer's stand on the corner

The surf beaches of Seaside, Cardiff Reef, and Swamis are all right here. And if surfing/beach is not your thing, you can wander through the San Diego Botanic Garden in town; visit nearby Torrey Pines for golf, hiking, or paragliding; explore Los Cedros design district for upscale shopping or live entertainment at the Belly Up Tavern; savor the sunset in a hot air balloon near Del Mar; or take the train from the Solana Beach station into downtown San Diego. Visit all the sights of San Diego including Sea World, the Zoo, Legoland, and other attractions within a half hour drive.

About The Owner

I am a California native who enjoys being outdoors - what better place than in beautiful Southern California!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Owner chose San Diego County

I fell in love with the north county San Diego coastal area - it has so much to offer with Torrey Pines hiking, beautiful beaches, events at the racetrack, fresh-grown local produce, great shopping and laid-back people.

What makes this condo unique

My condo makes me feel like I am living with nature in a pine forest near the lagoon - I love the peaceful environment, listening to birds, away from the noise/traffic typical of a beach city. Plus, I am a hiker and the San Elijo Lagoon has lots of great trails just a short walk from my home.

Excellent, Convenient, and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We are staying here while visiting our son in Solana Beach from Oregon. We have excellent access to him. Patty has thought of everything in this totally renewed unit. It is clean , updated, and perfect for the two of us. I love looking out at the greenerly all around. It is quiet and serene. No detail was forgotten. And to think the hustle-bustle is not far awayl!
