Solana Beach , CA

Kick'n back

         
Review by Peter B. — June 24th, 2022
Great view, close to the sand and water, and had everything we needed to enjoy a great time at the beach
4 out of 5 stars

great view

         
Review by Kelsey M. — April 9th, 2022
there were a couple of disappointing things about the condo. the first would be the chain smoker who was staying directly above us. was very frustrating having to constantly close the slider due to the smoke coming straight input our condo. she smoked quite often too which made it a chore to keep up. when staying on the ocean i except to be able to have my doors and windows open to feel the breeze and hear the ocean. not on this trip unfortunately. my husband is a long hauler due to covid complications and was told the complex was a smoke free property. there also was no cleaning supplies. not even clorox wipes to wipe the very stick counters. only one roll of toilet paper for a 10 day stay and there was an ant problem. also the oven was not able to open all the way, due to the setup in the kitchen so forget using that. we most definitely enjoyed the view but wish we were a little more stocked on the basic cleaning supplies to be able to keep things cleaner and keep the ants away. would stay at the complex again because of the location but maybe not this particular condo.

An Unbelievable Discourtesy

         
Review by — March 19th, 2022
We have been renting this condo for 3 winter months for the past 3 years. Each year, near the end of our stay, I emailed the real estate management company to give them the dates we wanted to book for the next season. After doing that this season, they told me that they had already booked a month during my requested dates to somebody else! I have been in this same complex for ten years. Prior renters were ALWAYS given first priority to renew for the next season. Management told me this was not true. That is certainly a FALSE statement. I was absolutely incensed that they did not come to me first before booking a new rental....and they booked a 1-month rental, as opposed to my 3-month rental. In addition to this discourtesy, does this even make financial sense to them and to the owner of the condo? They suggested we stay in the condo when it was available and then move to another condo complex for the rest of our stay. We are senior citizens, we bring a huge amount of personal belongings for three months....their idea of moving was completely unacceptable. This is an old complex. They did address all maintenance issues promptly. But this lack of courtesy to us is completely unacceptable. I would not recommend them to anyone.

Good Location But Owner Must Spend Money to Improve Conditions

         
Review by — September 28th, 2021
We love Del Mar Shores Terrace and have stayed there several times over the years. We rented the condo next door last year and it was great. This unit is nice but when we arrived we immediately felt how hot it was inside because the shades were up and the west facing windows were taking on lots of heat. We quickly realized that the shades for the 4 windows and slider door were in bad shape and 3 of the 4 were not functioning and looked threadbare. This was not good for privacy or heat control. The Keurig coffee maker was not in the kitchen and the only floor fan did not work. Property management had to come over a lot on this visit and eventually (our last two days) the Owner ok'd the installation of drapes -- which took a long time and impacted our private time. The next day the sink backed up and that meant the plumber had to come out and fix the clog. These things happen and the property management was mostly responsive but we suspect the owner was the problem by not spending money to properly and TIMELY repair key items for privacy and safety. We spent way too much time calling property management and pleading with them to get the owner to step up to the plate to make the place habitable for us. Cleaning the water stains off the wall from the leaky shower should be done, too. We love the location but would not stay in this unit again.

Thank you, John. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with Stubbs.

2 weeks of fun

         
Review by Evelyn H. — July 13th, 2021
This is a great location, nice breeze through the unit, was great to have a back patio for our bikes. Front patio if rather small so we could not do dinner outside. Stubbs was very responsive with getting a new grill and faucet for the bath room. No instructions on how to get the TV to work, but Stubbs came over and got them working. First time we have stayed on a ground floor unit and we missed the view of the ocean. Beach was great, very few people, we took walks and played with all the dogs. Nice area to ride our bikes.

Loved it!

         
Review by Hollie L. — May 28th, 2021
We loved this place! Highlights, great view and beach access, well stocked kitchen, cute decor, awesome shower pressure, nice to have washer and dryer. The bed was too soft though and hurt both our backs, but that’s a preface thing. It was discouraging that for 3 days of the trip the hot tub was ice cold. Other than that great!

Beach Beauty

         
Review by Frankie A. — May 19th, 2021
We had a wonderful time. Our son thinks we should rent this condo every time we come to visit. If this property were mine, I would consider getting rid of that hemp rug. It’s really dirty. Otherwise the place is terrific.

Excellent Easter Weekend

         
Review by Mark L. — April 8th, 2021
DMST 13 - Exceeded my expectations after reading many of the reviews. Yes,there are a few minor issues that should be taken care care of and have been told they will be. But, all in all the condo is perfectly located in the complex, cozy yet a sense of space with great views and plenty of light. Friendly neighbors and is located right at the beach access stairs which makes for extremely easy access to the beach and surf.. We will be back..

Cozy, Comfortable and Charming

         
Review by Gloria N. — October 1st, 2020
We chose to stay here for our 25th wedding anniversary away from kids and parents and loved the decor in the photos. It was even better in person. Was afraid about bathroom b/c no photos but it was huge and updated, Location was perfect with beach access but quiet, romantic and we were able to BBQ, watch NHL & movies on super comfortable couch. Bed was super comfortable, too. We did buy a portable fan so we could keep window blinds open to enjoy the amazing view. Stubbs forgot to give us card key for beach access but we just walked over an they gave it to us. Their instruction packet and staff was super professional and impressive.

beautiful beach, worn out unit

         
Review by — October 1st, 2020
This is a wonderful location, on a cliff overlooking the beach. The unit, though, is in sad shape. All the furniture in the photo remains, but that photo has to be at least 8 years old. The rug is ragged and stained. there was a nasty grease stain on the small patio outside. the kitchen table is rickety -- i've seen better at goodwill. the sofa is way past replacing, paunchy and with no support, needs to go. Same is true of the bedroom mattress. The walls are bruised and chipped in places....the laundry has some bizarre instructions of what you have to do to keep the lint from flying all over the place. Also, the TV has neither cable, nor any of the subscription services (Netflix, Hulu, etc), nothing I could find....this could easily be a decent unit with a few hundred dollars investment replacing this stuff. I wasn't looking for luxury. The beach was the luxury. But it would have been nice to have not been met with the chintziest, most worn-out stuff at every point in the unit....even the knives were ******. the beach chairs worn out.....very little effort is needed to bring this up, but apparently the owners don't care.....

Manager Response:
Thank you for your feedback. The photos are from mid-2018, and are fairly accurate from the walk through that was done by management in response to your review. Had we known about any of the issues you were having, we would have been happy to help. All of our properties include cable or streaming services and this unit is no different. We would have had the cable fixed right away, as well as the stain on the patio. Since your departure, we have had the unit painted and the couch and rug have been professionally cleaned. We have also updated the table and chairs to a new, sturdier set. We have nearly 80 properties in this area in varying price ranges. In the future, please inquire directly to find a unit that will be suitable to your needs.
