Great Location, Clean and Modern (5/5 stars)

Excellent condo!  Clean, modern and well appointed.  Not to mention its proximity to the pool and ocean lookout.  Can’t wait to come back!

Solana Beach stay (4/5 stars)

We enjoyed our stay at the property in Solana Beach. It was a very nice location just up the cliff from the beach with a very nice pool and hot tub. The condo itself was well furnished and the appliances worked well including the grill. There were ants in the unit which could be easily remedied with a trap or two and it was a little musty which worked itself out after we aired the unit out for a couple of days. Overall a very positive experience.

Paradise Found: A Dreamy Escape in Solana Beach! (5/5 stars)

Our stay at this beach condo was nothing short of magical! From the moment we stepped foot into the pristine, beautifully decorated space, we were enchanted by its charm and tranquility. The condo boasts stunning views of the Pacific Ocean that instantly whisked us away into vacation mode.


The layout of the condo is both functional and stylish, with ample space for relaxation and entertainment. The cozy living area provided the perfect spot to unwind after a day of exploring the nearby beaches and attractions. We especially loved sipping our morning coffee on the balcony while watching all of the surfers surf right in front of our balcony – a breathtaking experience we'll never forget!


The bedrooms were incredibly comfortable, offering a peaceful retreat at the end of each day. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing outside was pure bliss, and waking up to the gentle ocean breeze was the ultimate luxury. Additionally, the condo is equipped with top-of-the-line modern appliances.


Location wise, this condo is unbeatable! Situated just steps away from the beach, we enjoyed easy access to endless hours of sun, sand, and surf. Additionally, Solana Beach itself is a charming coastal town with plenty of shops, restaurants, and activities to explore. Shops and restaurants are just a block away from the condo.


In conclusion, if you're searching for a slice of paradise in Solana Beach, look no further than this exquisite beach condo. Our stay here exceeded all expectations, and we cannot wait to return for another unforgettable getaway!


Thank you to the owners for providing such a memorable experience!

Great Vacation (5/5 stars)

Lovely, spotlessly clean condo in a well maintained complex.

Beach Front Bliss (5/5 stars)

This rental unit is newly renovated with a fully equipped kitchen and 2 updated bathrooms. The decor is light and there are expansive views of the beach and ocean which is accessible by steps (about 120) outside the door.
The heated pool and hot tub are added bonuses. We had a pleasant stay..

Great place, great location and even better view (5/5 stars)

The views from the house are breathtaking!

A wonderful place to stay (5/5 stars)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Torre View Hideaway. When we next head back to the La Jolla/Del Mar area, this will be the first place we'll look at for another stay. The unit is recently remodeled, bright and airy, and well-stocked. It also has a beautiful ocean view, which many (maybe most) units in Sea Point lack.
This condo project couldn't be better located. Less than 10 minutes walk from Torre Pines Beach Park, and 5 minutes drive to Del Mar to the north and Torre Pines to the south.
Finally, the people at Stubbs Real Estate were friendly, easy to work with, and very responsive (not that we had to contact them much at all).

Newly updated beautifully and they thought of everything (5/5 stars)

Stayed for 2 months on a relocation and could not have been happier. Every amenity and more. Best rental I have ever experienced. Modern features and comfortable plus golf course views of the Omni LaCosta course. You will love it!

Jim M.

Great stay! (5/5 stars)

The condo was great, and had an amazing view.

Jason R.

Stunning! (5/5 stars)

The property is stunning! Everything in the condo is tastefully done with high-end finishes. The view is spectacular. The aquarium is a lovely touch. By far one of the best properties I have ever rented. I cannot wait to return.

Summer Stay (5/5 stars)

We had an excellent stay in a very nice condo. Had everything we needed, very clean, great location, great amenities. Interior in perfect condition. Tyler and the team were excellent to deal with and very accommodating. Can't wait to go back.

Awesome Home 10/10 (5/5 stars)

My boyfriend and I stayed here with some friends for a week, and it was fantastic! Beautiful home, with lots of space for all of us. It’s a great location, with downtown Encinitas or the beach both in easy walking distance. We spent a few nights exploring the cute downtown, and found some really delicious restaurants and adorable little shops. And the rooftop patio was amazing! Great view and an awesome place to hang out after dinner. Definitely a 10/10! We’ll for sure be staying here again next time!

Danielle C.

Manager's Response:

Thank you Danielle! We are so glad you enjoyed your time in Encinitas and we look forward to hosting you again soon!

Stunning Ocean View on a Cliff (5/5 stars)

This light and bright three-bedroom townhouse in Leucadia was a delight to stay in. It was sparkling clean, had comfy beds and furniture, and the hosts made sure everything we needed was there for us. There's a sunny and quiet deck to read a book, watch the waves and enjoy the unobstructed 180 degree views of the Pacific. We even caught a pod of dolphins on their way South!


The townhouse sits on a quiet and friendly street and is a short walk to Beacon's Beach and an easy drive to Moonlight Beach, which has all of the beach amenities you could ask for. It is walking distance to many delightful restaurants, breweries and coffee houses, We highly recommend stopping by Pannikins for an excellent cup of coffee and pastry and Le Papagayo's for music, food and cocktails.


This Leucadia home has everything we needed and more to enjoy a great stay in San Diego.  Above all, we appreciated how clean and well appointed ths place was and definitely will stay here again.

Great stay! Cool winter! (5/5 stars)

Love the Solana Beach area! Condo was great and in a good location.
The grounds of Seascape Sur are beautiful. It is nice having morning sun on the back deck and sun on the ocean side in the afternoon.Stubbs Rental
responded quickly when needed. We look forward to coming next winter.

Solana Beach winter 2023 (4/5 stars)

Very nice house in a lovely neighborhood up a hill overlooking a lagoon. Beautiful patio with succulent gardens and view. The 3 bdrm house with only one shower off the master -No door on bathroom. The guest bath has only a deep tub difficult for elderly guest to get in and out of. All 3
T.Vs have U Tube tv system that was not user friendly.
Dave Stubbs was wonderful and responsive as always!!

Worked Well (4/5 stars)

We had a great visit. The place was clean and predictable. Complex was safe and organized.

JOHN T.

Very Impressed (5/5 stars)

My stay here was nothing less than perfect!  I was in town for a week for business and stayed here.  This place had a great mix of location, amenities, and areas to take in the natural beauty of Solana Beach.  I travel a lot for work and this home was so comfortable I didn’t even think I was away. I love the design and feel of this condo - had everything I could need or want. I would get up in the morning and go for a walk around the quiet neighborhood.  After my walk I would stop in at Achilles Coffee. The people there were very nice and made great coffee.  If you want something to eat the breakfast sandwiches as well, are on point.  I must admit I stopped in more than once.  This place is truly a Seaside Oasis for work or vacation.  Highly recommended!

Great experience at SUR44 (5/5 stars)

Everything was wonderful in our 10 day stay. The advance process and checkin was smooth and well organized. The condo was recently renovated and is in great shape. I highly recommend the unit and Stubbs, This is our second experience stubbs, and both experiences were great.

Thomas G.

Stubbs does it again (5/5 stars)

We love staying in Solana Beach and come once to twice a year. Stubbs rentals are incredibly helpful and accommodating. It’s nice to deal with a local company and their customer service is unmatched. This specific unit has the best view and has been the most kid friendly we have stayed in. We loved it so much and will be back for sure.

Hollie L.

Amazing location and views of Solano Beach (5/5 stars)

This is a great unit with lots of room. We have been coming to Solano Beach for almost 20 years now and switch between SBTC and SUR. Both properties are wonderful. However, this may become our go to property. We now have young grandchildren and the location is wonderful. The 3 year old didn't want to leave!

Julie H.

Family Beach Reunion (5/5 stars)

This beach front condo is gorgeous from front to back. Plenty of space to share with our son and his wife while our other son and daughter and grandkids stayed in another unit we also rented from Stubbs. The views are stupendous and the accommodations everything we could want. Didn’t have beach gear with the unit but Stubbs provided with no problem.

Melissa H.

This Condo is a Gem! (5/5 stars)

What a place to call home while on vacation! This condo was gorgeous, spotless and completely updated. It sure didn’t feel like a rental, it’s that nice. We didn’t want to leave and can’t wait to go back. The location is amazing, within walking distance to all the great spots in Solana Beach yet the complex is so quiet and peaceful! It also has multiple pools and is a flight of stairs down to a fantastic stretch of beach. Two mins from the condo and you’re sitting on a bench above the cliffs enjoying incredible sunsets. This condo is a gem I almost don’t want to share!

Wonderful and Relaxing (5/5 stars)

We enjoyed our stay at Ocean Daydreams (145).  The layout was perfect for our kids who had their own bedroom. The master bedroom was roomy with a nice porch to sit out in the sun. The real gem of the condo was the large living room/dining room and kitchen. Everything was upgraded and on one level which was perfect for us.  The kids enjoyed the big screen TV.  The beach is literally a 3-minute walk down the steps, and the view from the seats overlooking the ocean was spectacular. Our kids enjoyed the beach as well as the large swimming pool. We will be back to Ocean Daydreams next year to enjoy another great, relaxing experience.

Great Stay. Jennifer, Kevin and Tyler at Stubbs were great . (5/5 stars)

Clean, comfortable, great location , fabulous stay .

Wayne W.

Nice condo (4/5 stars)

Our condo was clean and well furnished. Decor is close to high end and pleasing to the eye. The layout is not open concept/family gathering friendly...the stairs to the second level separate the kitchen/dining area from the living room area. However, that worked out very well for us because we had one person sleeping on the sofa bed in the living room area so we could do stuff in the kitchen without overly disturbing him. The condo is across the street from the main complex so no beach/ocean views and requires a short walk (take your gate key) to the main complex to access the view lounge/patio and beach access. This particular condo is right on Hwy 101 but well insulated against traffic noise...we rarely heard traffic noise unless we opened windows on that side. I doubt we will return unless nothing else is available because we prefer closer access to the beach but we were in a pinch coming out on short notice and the agency came through for us with three nice condos for our large family stay. Just a heads up that the condo does not have a regular coffee maker but an espresso maker which foamed the coffee.

Nice rental in Solana Beach! (5/5 stars)

The condo was nicely appointed, the beds were comfortable and the complex has easy access to the beach. The bedroom layout with two rooms with two beds in each was perfect for our trip as we had our college-aged daughter and three of her college friends join us for the weekend.

A Week by the Sea (5/5 stars)

This was a wonderful place to get away from our Minnesnowta home to defrost for a week. Higher than normal temperatures were a welcome surprise. The kitchen was well stocked with appropriate cookware, dishware, accessories and spices etc. The views from the Kitchen, Family Room and eating area are amazing. Enjoying the Ocean view from the balcony proved to be our favorite spot. Only negative was that because we arrived on a Saturday, an empty propane cylinder for the grill could not be replaced till the following Monday due to shortened weekend office hours and available personnel. The grill itself was in disrepair and really should be replaced. I would have rated 5's across board less the grill experience.

Manager's Response:

Thank you for your review, Martin! We apologize for the empty propane tank. The owners have replaced the grill based on your experience. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Seascape Sur and we look forward to hosting you again soon.

Large, bright, comfortable, had what we needed (5/5 stars)

This condo was large, clean, comfortable to be in, and had everything we needed (including boogie boards and beach chairs). The layout is a little strange but it makes sense to have the big living room / kitchen area upstairs as it's bright and sunny and open, whereas the bedrooms get less sun so they're downstairs. The windowless "office" room actually was very handy for work Zoom calls, as it's out of the way and quiet. Only drawback was that the 3rd bed was in the living room, so the person sleeping there had to be the last to go to bed and the first to wake up.

Diane R.

Great beach property (5/5 stars)

Great location ! Very nice property with good appliances and decor

Ana V.

Spacious, quiet, great location (4/5 stars)

The condo was very spacious and had easy access to the beach and community pool. It was a very quiet community which is great, but maybe not the best place for young kids who don't always use inside voices 🙂 The condo itself was clean and had all kitchen items you needed, except a standard coffee maker. I would have like for the bedrooms to have room darkening curtains and for there to be more beach towels. Also, there is no AC in the unit. You do get a good breeze when windows are open but that isn't helpful when you aren't there or don't want to leave the doors open at night.

great unit (5/5 stars)

Very nice. We had some issues with the tv, fridge, and ants in our bed. Kevin and the Stubbs team responded promptly and did a great job.

Richard L.

A Perfect West Coast Retreat!! (5/5 stars)

Absolutely could not beat this location. Convenient to Solano and Del Mar beaches. Walkable to many shops and restaurants. Since we were from East Coast and limited on what we could bring, we really appreciated Stubbs providing beach chairs, towels, cooler, etc. during our stay.

Stephanie M.

nice place (5/5 stars)

great location and view. Keys did not work for pool access and ants are evident in the master bath

Howard H.

The best week in Solana Beach (5/5 stars)

We recently spent an entire week at Seascape Sur in Solana Beach and it was wonderful. We loved the location—walking distance to town, restaurants and beach. We spent every sunny day at the beach and it was never too crowded. The condo itself was great, very clean, spacious and had all the amenities we could have needed. We will definitely look to stay here again on our next trip to SD and highly recommend it!

Megan B.

Great Beach Location. (4/5 stars)

Condo has a great view and a nice patio. It is next to the pool but there are very few people who walk by... we felt it was very private. The condo has a nice kitchen, washer/dryer along with two bathrooms and two double beds in the bedroom. Del Mar Beach Club has a private stairway to the beach which is a plus (expecially with Covid). As always Stubbs staff were friendly, supportive (had a few lightbulbs go out)and very responsive. You can walk to several restaurants, the shopping on Cedros, coffee shops and the CVS is close by as well. Solana Beach is a wonderful place. Stubbs always has quality properties that are clean and comfortable.

Spacious and Clean (5/5 stars)

The location of Del Mar Beach Club was perfect for us. The unit seemed clean and big in the pictures, was perfect for us. It was very spacious and clean. Overall, we were very pleased.

Marge L.

Loved every minute we had at this place (5/5 stars)

There is no better review than simply stating, “when we come back to Solana Beach we will be trying to get into the same exact place.” It was clean, quiet, and the views of the ocean were phenomenal. Each morning my kids got to eat on the balcony and watch the dolphins play in the water. The access to the beach was super easy to get to and in a few minutes we were surfing. The kitchen was fully stocked with great equipment (pots, pans, knives, etc.) so we could cook most of our meals after spending the day on the beach. The property managers were also extremely great to work with.

Exceptional!! (5/5 stars)

Being from San Diego and having sold our home in November of 2018. We had set out on a 14 month road trip / book tour.
We were in Sedona Arizona and had made a trip to Durango Colorado when David had a medical emergency. His cancer had returned. We came back to San Diego for treatment. Now we needed somewhere to stay and fast.
All I can say is THANK YOU to Stubbs Vacation Rentals and their exceptional staff!!
Jennifer and Jeffrey are AMAZING!! Their expertise, warmth, patience and kindness have meant so much to me during this time.
The rental is perfect. . . Again, exceptional.
Thank you Stubbs Vacation Rentals, because of your establishment, we were blessed with a miracle!
With gratitude,

World Class Rental (5/5 stars)

World class beachfront views in a well appointed department. Great kitchen and dining layout, with a view towards the sea, makes this a nice beach place to have some quality family times, even in winter. Also nice enough to impress any visitors. Bo made the magic happen, being experienced at meeting worldly travelers needs with excellence.

David

Comfortable, Like Home (4/5 stars)

This place is very comfortable, like home. We stayed 7 nights and appreciated the roomy space, amble utilities, and easy beach access. The location is about 20 min drive from the main tourist spots and our favorite restaurants, but you got everything you need at home. We truly enjoyed this relaxing and great vacation.

great summer getaway (5/5 stars)

This condo was perfect for our family of 5 (kids ages 8, 10, and 12). It is beautifully decorated and comfortable with efficient use of space. The complex was quiet and nicely maintained. Parking is close to the unit and wasn't a hassle. Pictures and description are accurate. Would definitely stay here again!!! Only downside was no A/C and the stairs to the beach weren't accessible, but we were aware of that before we booked the rental.

Excellent Service (5/5 stars)

We found Stubbs on Google, got in contact with Jennifer and she sent us several options. We chose Stubbs because of Jennifer's service. We loved our stay. Kitchen was well equipped, nice grill, comfortable beds and pillows. Thank you for responding fast to our needs.

More Than We Were Looking For (5/5 stars)

Bo had experienced a software issue that had a slight impact on us. To our supreme delight Bo did everything he could and over delivered on getting this little glitch to be nothing and ultimately, because of his service, my family and I had a fantastic stay at the place. Thanks Bo!

SB condo (5/5 stars)

The complex is great, and we took advantage of the pool and the proximity to the beach, Legoland and Sea World. The layout of the unit was great, however it was too run down for me to want to stay in it again.

Renee Dake W.

Loved it. (4/5 stars)

We plan on coming back to the same unit next year.

Robert M.

We loved our visit in Solana Beach. The weather was excellent and the housing was good. (4/5 stars)

The only problem was that our six condos were not all together. Having them in different complexes was difficult because of the different keys. It would have been helpful if the property manager had explained the security system to me when I inquired about reservations, and also that they were in different locations. She said they were within walking distance to each other, which was true, but quite a distance from DMD to SBTC. Having never been there I didn't understand the set up, so it would have been helpful to have been given a more detailed explanation. Other wise we had a great time in spite of being separated. Thanks.

Juanita D.

Summer Vacation 2008 (5/5 stars)

This was a great property and great location. Our Family had a great time in San Diego. We were a short walk away from the beach and the pool. We had a washer and dryer and kitchen to keep our costs down. The only thing I would suggest is to clean the carpet. It was rather dirty, but other than that, a great spot to call home for a week.

Cindy C.

Oceanside comfort (5/5 stars)

This beautifully appointed home was bright, comfortable and spacious . The breezes off the ocean kept things cool. The best thing was eating out on the rooftop deck and watching the sun sink into the Pacific.

Great Location - Good Unit (5/5 stars)

Overall positive experience, as usual. This unit has the best location (end unit means extra windows) and the most convenient parking spaces in the complex.
A couple of minor additions would achieve Superior status. The unit could use one more comfortable chair (there is certainly plenty of room)and, especially during race season, expanded cable service would be nice so we could receive TVG-the horse racing channel.
Upgraded appliances were nice and the new cabinets and sliding doors were treat-everything opened easily.
One minor negative re appliances. When we arrived the dishwasher was beeping occasionally. After we played with it for what seemed like an eternity (naturally the only manual apparently missing from the otherwise complete set was the one we needed) it finally stopped making the noise. Not wanting to press our luck, we simply didn't risk using the dishwasher for the week.
We enjoyed our stay-a lot!

John C.

Great unit, great location, I would do it again (5/5 stars)

I highly recommend this unit. It was it good shape, right on the water (above the bluff) and in a great location. The complex is also very good with two nice tennis courts, two pools and a nice club house with pool tables and ping pong. Our family of four really enjoyed our stay.

Nice spot with plenty of room for family of 6 (5/5 stars)

Everyone had their own beds! Nice layout, relaxed location with good access to beach.

Fabulous Location (5/5 stars)

Wonderful location with unobstraucte view of the Pacific and fabulous sunsets. Grounds of the complex are beautiful with tennis courts and pools to use. Second bedroom has only a double bed, so not the best for sleeping arrangements but roll-away is provided.

The location and place was fabulous. The sunsets awesome. Very convenient to everything

Condo in Solano Beach (4/5 stars)

I loved the location. The condo was old. Everything was rusty. The kitchen items and the barbeque were rusty. Beds were uncomfortable also. The only great thing was the ocean view. We went out and bought paper cups and dishes to use.

SONG8 (4/5 stars)

This is our second time to use Dave Stubbs. We love it. However, prices keep going up and we are going to have to skip it this year because we can't afford the pricing.

Condo (4/5 stars)

We were quite happy with our stay. We just had one problem- we had to move all of our things to another condo because of a non-functioning refrigerator.

Carole W.

Condo with a view (5/5 stars)

With a sister living in Solana Beach we have stayed in many different accommodations over the years. This was by far one of the best ones we have found. The condo has a wonderful view of the ocean and it was a delight to wake up each morning and watch the morning surfers. Also, when the tide permitted we would take long walks along the beach which is easily accessible. The condo was well stocked with supplies. We enjoyed our stay very much.
