|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
When you need to get away from it all....this is the place to relax. Our stairs to the beach have been completed and though it includes many steps...it is easy and now safe to get to our public beach. If all those stairs are daunting there is another public beach 4 blocks away that has no stairs. Also,
dog beach is about the same distance away going south
Keywords: An older condominium that has been completely refurbished with new plumbing, cabinets, carpet, flooring, paint, the works. A
wonderful location that allows walking to the beach, Cedros Street, the Racetrack, and to many fine restaurants.
It was the ideal getaway location when the kids were small. It was great for our family
from the desert.
San Diego has so much to offer and we are
just 20 minutes from Sea World, 20-30 minutes from Balboa Park and the Zoo. Lego
Land is close and even Disneyland can be reached in 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Me and my family had a great time here! The owner was very involved with our stay and ensured we felt at home! We would definitely stay here again and recommend the property!
Our family really enjoyed our stay at this condo. Well appointed with all of the necessities needed and the location is fantastic! Having a garage outfitted with a bunch of great beach gear to use was also a huge help. The beach was clean, safe and not very crowded. We loved it. Plenty of shopping/food options within walking distance as well. Liz, the owner, communicated very well and all went as planned. We cannot wait to come back!
Can't say enough nice things about this condo. Great location on a secluded beach (but still has a lifeguard), all the necessary items to play in the sand and water, and a comfortable home to return to when the day is spent. Liz has it all! There are boogie boards, beach chairs and an umbrella, totes, sand toys, paddle ball, and ample fresh smelling towels. The condo itself has a well stocked linen closet, soap and paper products, and a kitchen that is nicer than MINE! The "air mattresses" that are advertised are really those aerobeds that pump up like a regular bed with custom fitted sheets. With 4 teen boys over 6 feet tall, I did not have any problems with sleeping arrangements. That was a first for me. The condo is located a short walk from many restaurants and shopping. There are three different grocery stores within a few miles. It is conveniently located 15-20 minutes from both SeaWorld and LEGOLAND. It was also a 50 min. trip to the Disney parks that was a smooth drive against the flow of rush hour. We enjoyed the game closet and now have a new family favorite in the game "Sequence". The hot water was endless. She has wifi, cable TV, and a gas grill out in the back yard. Anyone vacationing here from a large family to a quiet romantic get a way for two will not be disappointed. Thank you, Liz, for the best vacation ever!!!
The condo was very clean and well-stocked. I loved that it had a king bed and two queen beds. A lot of sleeping space in just 2 bedrooms. The beach was close and beautiful. As we were there before school was out we had the whole beach to ourselves at times. My 4 yr old had a great time playing in the sand and jumping over waves.
I loved the area. It was very quiet and upscale. Lots of restaurants within walking distance and a very short drive to Del Mar. Very nice!
This condo is a hidden gem. It is everything it advertises to be...cozy, clean and close to the beach. Our family of 6 stayed comfortably in the ample rooms with all the comforts of home. After a short trip to the grocery store, our week over the Thanksgiving holiday was fantastic. After a hearty Thanksgiving meal prepared in the well-appointed kitchen, the entire family was able to enjoy a beautiful sunset at the beach, just a short walk away! The condo is also close to great restaurants and bars...like the Posideon...which is right on the beach.
The owner, Liz, was great in assisting us in any manner possible...thanks Liz!
First of all, this is a GREAT place to stay. This so much, much, much more than "just another vacation rental."!
First of all, as you enter the condo, you walk into a bright, clean and cozy family/living room. Adjacent to it is the dining area with a great table and chairs. Next to it is the kitchen and a door to get out onto the back patio. There is also a bathroom with beach towels on that floor.
Upstairs are two bedrooms and a full bathroom. My wife and I took the smaller bedroom with King's bed. My two girls (10 & 12) got the big room with the nice big beds and a gorgeous view of the palm tree outside the window. They were in heaven and actually spent time in their room playing.
When we arrived on a Saturday after driving for 14 hours, we were exhausted. When we opened the fridge, there were actually several new water bottles in it. The same with butter and condiments. There was a little bit of everything, and we couldn't figure out whether previous guests had left some items, or whether the landlady stocks the basics.
Being away from home, you really don't want to have to go out and buy salt & pepper just so your eggs have a little flavor. It was like that with everything. Garbage bags. Sandwich bags. A can of ravioli.
BUT THE TRULY AMAZING THING is the remodeled kitchen. I now, I'm a guy" and I shouldn't drool over such things, but I couldn't help myself. The appliances are top-notch and extremely clean. The silverware was actually nicer than the stuff we have at home. Plates, cups, glasses, utensils, knives . . . they had everything you would possibly need on your vacation.
Then there are the beach chairs, the two body boards and miscellaneous vacation hardware that's available for you. My girls probably went body boarding every day, and that alone saved us from entertainment expenses.
We felt so blessed to have found this particular condo, we even got the used beach towels laundered.
Finally, I have to tell you in all honesty that I have never dealt with an easier-to-get-along-with landlord than the one who watches over this condo. Every e-mail exchange and phone conversation left me with a big smile. There were no hiccups or misunderstandings. Everything went as planned.
It also doesn't take much to get the security deposit back. Just put everything back (house keys, garage door opener, parking pass, etc.) and clean up after yourself. That's it.
We will definitely be back!
The Del Mar Race Track operates during July/August to
Labor Day. We are located approximately 1/2 to 1 mi,
away. During the month of June at the same site the
San Diego Fair is open. Legoland, Sea World, San Diego
Zoo are all 20 minutes away by car. San Diego' s Zoo
Safari Land is about 45 minutes away. And within easy walking distance is our famous Cedro Street known for its Design Stores. We think the best Thai restaurant in Solana Beach is located just across the street from the condo.
