Dophin View Coastal Vacation (4/5 stars)

fantastic week on the coast

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.

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.

nice place (5/5 stars)

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

Pristine! (5/5 stars)

This place is absolutely pristine!  The location is just perfect.  Close enough to walk to almost everything you need, but super easy parking in case you wanted to drive.  You can access the beach, right down the stairs from the cliff, or take a quick walk or drive down the street for beach access at Fletcher Cove (no stairs).  The beach out in front of the property is absolutely beautiful.  If you walk a little down to the south, you will have an almost private beach, all to yourself.  The amenities at the property are well cared for and ample.  Pool, hot tubs, tennis courts, and game room, along with cool little gathering spots for sipping coffee or cocktails and watching the waves roll in.  No need to go much further than the front patio at the condo for views of the Pacific tho.  The patio furniture is super comfy and you could sit for hours, reading a book and just watching the surfers and the dolphins play in the ocean below.  The sunsets are breathtaking!  The condo itself is bright and brand new.  Fully stocked with everything you need.  The kitchen is a highlight, with all updated appliances and every accessory you could ask for.  The couch and the master bedroom mattress are super comfy, and taking a shower in the rain shower after coming up from the beach is the perfect ending to the day.  The property is quiet, and being on one of the end units makes it feel like you have the whole place to yourself.  I can't say enough good things about this spot.  Thank you so much for having us.

Manager's Response:

Thank you so much, Paige! You were our first guest here and we are so glad to hear that it had everything you needed for your vacation. We look forward to hosting you at Sea Gem again soon!

We had a wonderful stay at this very nice property. (4/5 stars)

LOCATION:
There are some shopping\food places within a few blocks walk, but it takes a short drive to reach a larger assortment of choices. There are LOTS of good places to eat within a 15-minute drive.
COMPLEX:
The complex is very quiet and non-smoking (but there was that one guy...)
The pools were still mostly restricted due to Covid, so the lounge chairs were lacking. The pool\spa were clean and well heated.
The parking spaces were pretty close to the unit (which isn’t the case with all units), but it is still a little distance to hump all your stuff (with some stairs)
UNIT:
The unit is well loved (read: some minor holes in the couch, stains on the carpet, etc), but everything was very comfortable.
The sound of the ocean drowns out most of the little noise within the unit, but if the people above, below or next door to you open closets, slam doors, walk in heels, etc., you will hear it.
There were some maintenance issues that need to be addressed (slow tub drain, broken ice maker, outlets not working). Also, they need to clean the glass on the balcony railing, what is the point of having that great view if you have to look through dirty glass!!
Nitpicky stuff: There should be another nightstand in the front bedroom, needs a light in the living room, an electronic lock on the front door would be convenient (and more secure).
The unit was WELL stocked. There was all kinds of stuff in the place (kitchen accys, games, towels, tools, cleaning supplies, pillows, blankets, books, beach chairs & umbrella, etc). Nothing was lacking.
The little patio off the master bedroom was useless since it didn’t have any furniture.
BEACH ACCESS:
While you have a GREAT view of the ocean from the unit, getting to the beach takes a seven-flight stair climb (and not those little 5-10 step flights). If you are loading up with kids, coolers, chairs, etc, its gonna be a long hike. If long stair climbs are not your thin

Manager's Response:

Thank you for your thorough review, Dean! We will definitely mention your review to the owner and work with them on updating the unit. We are glad you enjoyed your stay overall and look forward to hosting you again soon.

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!

Perfect Stay for our Family (5/5 stars)

This was an outstanding experience for us. We sought a location to stay while our house was finishing a remodel, and this worked perfectly. Right next to the beach with wonderful amenities. Super convenient for bringing in groceries and such. Loved our time there. No complaints whatsoever.

Jim 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.

PERFECT!!!! (5/5 stars)

This place is HUGE, modern and ideally located with very nice VIEWS OF THE OCEAN the website pictures does not do justice.


My family had a wonderful time and are going to come back for a much longer stay to work and school remotely.  

 

I did my research and got lucky this just came on the market as I haven't found as good a value in this area.

Christie J.

Del Mar Getaway (5/5 stars)

Really nice property, across the street from a park overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The property is well maintained, quiet, and a few blocks from the heart of Del Mar. Parking is off-site a short 2 block walk away.

Jeff C.

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.

Great location - Too many issues (3/5 stars)

Our 6-week stay during Covid-19 while my husband was treated at the cancer center.
Positive: Location, top-of-the-line appliances, condo layout, responsiveness of property management. Thanks to Jennifer and Tyler who did their best address issues as they arose.
Negative: Our opinion as owners of property rentals elsewhere, is that this unit was not rent-ready. Our family has stayed in many beach home rentals over 3 decades--this one had more issues than all combined! Condensed version: electrical/wiring must be inspected before re-renting as several outlets did not work and one buzzed/flashed sparks as we plugged in our cell phone charger. The microwave did not work properly and we had use of it only about 1 week of our stay ( although the repairman was there 3 times); we waited for the new microwave that did not arrive before we checked out. The handyman came on day 8 repaired the inoperable outlets including in both baths, removed the door in the master bath to repair and return the next day, removed the inoperable folding doors on the laundry, attempted to fix the gas BBQ but basically pronounced it dead (after we had refilled the empty tank), various cleaning issues that required staff to return. Vacuum cleaner did not work properly and a new one was ordered and delivered. We replaced the batteries in 2 of the 3 smoke detectors to stop the beeping. Sliding door in master needs attention as it must be lifted to open/close.

Mostly excellent. Very defined at the end by COVID. Complex and unit were generally wonderful.

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,

Spectacular View (5/5 stars)

Fantastic place with a spectacular view in a fabulous location. A great romantic hideaway for couples by the beach. The photos really don't do it justice!

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.

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.

Awesome Location (5/5 stars)

Ideal Location (5/5 stars)

My wife and I stayed here for 6 weeks while we were house hunting. It was an ideal location that’s walking distance from downtown Encinitas and just steps from an ocean view. We had a couple of issues with maintenance-related items, but Bo’s rental company was quick to come out and fix them. The house was stocked with anything you could need for a stay - even for us to cook thanksgiving dinner!

Matthew

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!

Summer Vacation /airbnb disabled (5/5 stars)

It's a nice place for summer vacation. Ten minutes walk to beach. Quite and clean. The transportation is convenient var No5 highway. The facility in house is sufficient and easy to use. We are happy to come back again.

Loved the Space /airbnb disabled (5/5 stars)

We loved the space and the upstairs deck with table facing the ocean was the perfect place for leisurely lunches in the sun. The only drawback to this unit is the Queen bed in the master bedroom. The mattress is too small and is in need of an upgrade. There is plenty of room for a King bed and would make a huge difference in sleeping arrangements! The kitchen is fully stocked and we were able to cook all of our meals without missing any type of pots/pans/measuring spoons, etc. They have done a great job making sure we had everything we needed. Note there ARE beach towels and there IS a blow dryer in the unit. We brought our own because the listing specifically says they do not have these things... but you can save the space in your suitcase 🙂

As Solana Beach Tennis condo owners we rent an additional condo for one week in August to provide for additional family members to visit. This is the 2nd year we have rented from Stubbs and have been satisfied with our dealings with them (3/5 stars)

We love the location. Close to grocery stores, Costco, restaraunts, but most of all the beach!!! We also enjoy Sea World & the zoo which are also very close! (5/5 stars)

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.

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.

appliances poor shape, several screens poor condition, we left the place much cleaner than when we arrived and didnt get our deposit back. We returned to Solana Beach this year and used another vender (3/5 stars)

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.

Very old and dirty (2/5 stars)

After paying over $1800/week I expected the place to be at least decent. The unit is very old and have not beeen renovated. But at least it could be clean! It was thick layer of black dust on all outdoor furniture, obviously it was never cleaned. Thick layer of dust on indoor things like lampshades, clock, etc. Bathroom counters dirty in the corners, floors seems to be clean but after you walk barefeet, your feet turn black. the most discusting was to find spots on the bedding that was in the closet, apparently it was not washed. The part of the bedding that was washed and put in the closet was absolutly wet.
Ants in the kitchen...
Do I need to continue?

Not a Secure parking area, Guard blank! (1/5 stars)

Get a better security system, had damange
to my new Lexus, window and interior!

Merrill S.

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!

Spacious easy-to- be in (5/5 stars)

Although there is quite a bit of pool activity
(kids) during the day-- the place was generally quiet... great for families w/
small kids--
The complex hallway outside the rental needs some deodorizing attention.
Overall, a very relaxing vacation spot!
Thank you!

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.

Timothy B.

Solana Beach Condo Stay (4/5 stars)

This is the 2nd time I've stayed at this property, in fact, in the same unit. I really enjoy the area, but didn't give it a 5 due to the high tide beach bathing prevention...but, I still love the location. I also didn't give a 5 to the property's general condition due to the toilet issues and only 2 sets of keys available for a 3-bedroom unit. I can understand only 2 parking spaces, but I don't understand only 2 sets of available key sets. I do plan to stay with you again in the future. For the most part, I really love the overall setup.

Carla B.

Wonderful Family Vacation (5/5 stars)

Had a great stay. Much more comfortable for a family with kids vs. a hotel. Great location on the beach. Solana Beach is a nice, relatively quite city but close to all the fun that the San Diego area has to offer. We look forward to visiting again.

Spectacular view in a great location (5/5 stars)

Well furnished with all the extras. Great location in the Seascape Sur complex. Only complaint is the tiny second bedroom.

There were a few minor problems with the unit we stayed in, but they were immediately corrected as soon as we identified them to the Dave Stubbs office staff. Their customer service was very helpful and friendly and i would not hesitate to recommend the Dave Stubbs service to any of my friends.

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.

a VERY nice and comfortable stay (5/5 stars)
