I was looking for a reasonably priced rental that was close to the beach and allowed dogs. I stayed at the Martinique for a week. There are 3-4 attached units and this one is off to the side closest to the alley.
The place was very clean and had all the kitchen supplies I needed. I didn't spend many daytime hours inside because the weather was beautiful and sat at the beach for hours. There are 2 small neighborhood beaches a 3-5 minute walk away. I preferred these smaller beaches to the crowded large crowded one by the pier. In comparing prices to other rentals in the area it was competitively and reasonably priced.
The wifi worked just fine and the bed was very comfortable. I had plenty of room but it was just me and my Labrador staying there. When they say 2 adults, 2 kids I would agree that anything more than that would be a tight fit.
The Main Street with all the stores and restaurants is about a 15-20 minute walk in one direction and the cliffs trail that follows along the ocean starts about a 5 minute walk in the other direction. My dog and I walked the trails each morning and its very pretty with a nice breeze coming off the water.
I ate at a few of the restaurants in the area and to me I didn't find anything to either recommend or to steer away from, they were just ok. I preferred bbqing on my own and then eating out on the shared patio by the condo. It was 110 degrees back in Phoenix and I was determined to soak up as much of the 65 degree San Diego weather as possible.
For the most part this unit is exactly as advertised. Some things I ran into were all 3 bikes were broken, the BBQ wouldn't start (seems the ignition button was broken), this particular unit is right off the main gate and garage door so there was A LOT of pedestrian traffic in and out and the gate and door opening / closing was annoying, the washer and dryer were constantly being used by the cleaning service during the day and the renters at night, sand in the jacuzzi and there were a lot of kids staying there while I was there. This unit doesn't have parking assigned and I can see that as the high season approaches it might be difficult to get a street spot close. I only had issues late at night and on the weekend.
I did call about the bikes and the BBQ. The bikes were fixed the following day. These are not the highest end bikes but they are ok to toodle around on. The BBQ had gas but the ignition button didn't work. I went out and bought a $5 lighter and it would start manually. Not a huge deal but I shouldn't have had to go out and buy it especially after I had called it in.
Overall this was a good place to stay. I would stay here again but I'd try and stay in a unit that was further away from the gate and had an assigned parking spot.
