When we decided, after 25 years, to sell our Naples FL condo; we looked at several places to rent near our San Diego based son and daughter-in-law. I found this Solana Beach condo on line and thought it looked perfect. We sent our kids to check out this one and one other in the area. They came back raving about the Del Mar Beach Club property...and boy were they right! The moment we walked in, all we could say was "Wow!" The decor, the view, and the general property were more than we could have hoped for. I loved coming out each morning and opening the blinds to the spectacular Pacific view. The stairs directly down to the beach were just a few feet from our door. Needless to say, we took daily walks along the shore. The layout of the condo itself allowed us to have that "at home" feeling I was afraid I would miss from our Florida unit. I was a caterer, and found the kitchen supplied with anything I might need. The appliances were state of the art (even more up-to-date than I was familiar with). The TV's (both in the living room and master suite) allowed us to watch together or indulge in our separate tastes...plenty of movie channels on the cable system, too! The Solana Beach location was perfect - 20 minutes from downtown San Diego, but "small town" enough to have lots of restaurants, stores, and amenities within walking distance. Steve Schuler, the owner, could not have been more accessible or helpful, even offering to allow us to purchase "anything that might add to the condo's convenience." We did buy some beach chairs to leave in the storage closet. We are so happy with everything about our experience at Del Mar Beach Club and look forward to next year's stay.
