Really nice condo.

"Lovely condo - great experience. We asked for a condo on the second floor, facing the courtyard. The view was much better than the parking lot, and the balcony was much more private. The trade off was hearing all the pool noise (which was fine). Condo updated, well-stocked and very clean."…"

Solana is such a nice, quiet vacation spot. We walked to the beach every night and watched the sunsets. Its alot less busy than neighboring Del Mar but equally as beautiful.

Solana Beach is a small charming town that has great beaches, good food, shopping on Cedros, and a wonderfully relaxed vibe. It's a great place to stay on vacation-centrally located between downtown San Diego and North County San Diego, close to all.
