Great Experience in Del Mar
This condo was in a great location being close to the beach and downtown Del Mar. The property manager, Nina, was very responsive and pleasant to deal with. Would definitely recommend this place to others.
Not well maintained house in a wonderful location
We are a family from Brazil with a daughter studying at UCSD and this was my fourth time in a year in San Diego. I stayed at La Valencia Hotel and the other 2 times we rented a home through an agency. This time we wanted to try something different and we chose VRBO and Del Mar.
When we arrived the location was the best, very close to the beach, almost beside Poseidon and Jake's Restaurants and shops in beautiful Del Mar. That was the best part.
The reviews were great and the pictures beautiful but they were probably taken a long time ago and did not correspond to the real thing.
The complex where the unit is located is cute with a pool an jacuzzi just beside the train track. There is the noise of the trains every once in a while but that really didn't bother us.
What really bothered us, a lot, when we first entered the house in a September afternoon, was the heat!!!! They had left the fans turned on but the heat upstairs, where the master bedroom and the bunk rooms are, was unbearable! They put a portable air conditioning on the master bedroom that was far from enough to chill the high ceiling room with a direct insolation. The temperature upstairs was 90*F when we arrived! We all stayed downstairs that was much more cooler! My husband considered moving to a hotel but we waited the night to see how would it be. We could only sleep with the air at our feet but our son on the bunk room only had the fan...
Well, the best room is the one downstairs. Much cooler and with a remodelled shower but... dirty! My daughter woke up sneezing uninterruptedly the next day and when I saw the lamps beside the bed they were covered with a thick layer of dust... And there was also ants, lots of ants, all over the bathrooms and kitchen. This house needs a deep cleaning!
The furnitures are shabby but the other problem was the light. Not having enough lamps, at night it was very dark in the rooms. In the morning it was the opposite, the upstairs rooms have high glass walls and no shades...The master bedroom had some blinds but thanks God we had the eyeshades from the airplane...
Noticing this is a high intensely used house, I suggest a complete remodelling and putting a real air conditioning, at least upstairs.
This is a house with great potential but the way it is today I would not stay here again and doubting the pictures and the reviews I would also not use VRBO again
LOVED THIS PLACE!
Stayed @ this location for 7 days and could not be more impressed or happier with our choice. My oldest son was getting married and staying @ the L'Auberge hotel/condo located within walking distance. Our condo was also so convenient to the beach and provided us with everything we needed for our stay. My 9 year old took advantage of the beach toys and the pool/hot tub area the most on this trip as did a lot of us. It turned out we had 3 families from the wedding at this same location. We had plenty of sleeping space for our family and a couple of my son's friends (groomsmen) who stayed with us. Three bathrooms; a washer and dryer and everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare meals-- A lot of time was spent on what seemed like a new couch and sofa along with a side chair and ottoman in the "family room" area which the guys used to play cards.
We left Del Mar and traveled north to another location and cannot say we had the same experience.. I would definitely recommend Nina and her condo location here in Del Mar.
Thanks for a memorable stay! <3
Well maintained, well decorated 3 bedroom condo very close to the Del Mar beach with pool & hot tub
We loved our vacation here- evenings we would walk with the kids to the beach, which is very close, literally across the street. Then we would come back and relax in the pool and hot tub. Clean, well maintained and beautifully decorated. The place is well stocked with a grill, beach chairs, 4 boogie boards, and 5 times the amount of sand toys that our 3 year old needed. It is an older complex, but remodeled and a new coat of paint, pretty much like the city of Del Mar itself.
We thoroughly enjoyed the condo and all that it had to offer! Great location!
Amazing location directly across from the beautiful beach, excellent bars and restaurants, short hop to great golf and really central to downtown attractions as well as San Diego safari and legoland. The complex has a really nice communal pool and hot tub, great parking (2 designated spots in an underground parking facility which was great for keeping the car cool), bedrooms and bathrooms were great (carpets were spotless which has to be difficult in a rental), kitchen was great with new appliances and a convenient upstairs laundry room . The house was plenty big for 4 adults and 3 kids and everyone in the complex was friendly and polite.
The customer service provided by the wonderful Nina (who was nice enough to pay us a visit to see if we needed anything)and her team was what pushes this property to 5 stars. we had a few minor issues on the 1st day (to minor to even list) and within hours Coral had everything taken care of. This really meant a lot to my wife and i and really got our stay off on the right foot. Also the entire house was spotless when we arrived and the house keeping team were welcoming which really gives the place a nice relaxing atmosphere.
One small area that could be improved is the living area and outdoor area. the living room and outdoor furniture looks and feels dated and uncomfortable and need to be replaced and also dimmer switches would make a huge difference to the living room, dining room and upstairs landing lighting as its very bright with the lights on or darkness without them.
This is the 1st review I have ever written but I feel this might help another family have the wonderful vacation we had. Hope to be back next summer.
The condo comes equipped with free wi fi, all your linens and beach chairs, boogie boards and sand toys and an outdoor barbecue on your own private patio area.

Only 1 mile from the Del Mar Fairgrounds and Del Mar Race track, 3 miles from the Del Mar Polo Club and 7 miles from the quaint village of Rancho Santa Fe. We are 21 miles from the San Diego Airport. Everyone loves the location - right across the street from the beach!
