Jerry Quinlan purchased this Condo in 1997
Why Jerry Quinlan chose
'Top of the World' is like a pressbox in a sports stadium; looking from a most exceptonal and unique view down over the pier, beach, harbor, and Islands on the horizon. A short two hundred twenty yard walk down to the sand. The location is equally between Disneyland, Newport, Hollywood; and, San Diego Zoo, Seaworld, Legoland.
What makes this Condo unique
Overlooking EVERYTHING! - harbor, beach, waves, surfers, pier, and Islands. Three block walk into downtown Del Mar street in San Clemente; and, 220 yard walk down to the sand, waves, pier, and restaurants on the pier.

Good size space, enviable location, stellar view! The wrap around deck, grill & firepit in the patio table were highlights. Appreciated having a full kitchen for family meals, and access to a washer/dryer so we could keep our towels clean. One disappointment was this was not a 3BR listing even though HomeAway categorized as such. Yes, there were enough beds but with two families, we were expecting both sets of parents to have a bedroom with kids in the bunkroom & sunroom, which wasn’t the case so be warned, adults will be on trundle beds! One recommendation would be a guide for the property (where things are located, how to use them, which outlets work / don’t work, where to find towels & toilet paper, house rules, area highlights, etc). Overall, it served it’s purpose & gave us a good home base for our week at the beach.
Breathtaking and magnificent view
The view from the deck was gorgeous and very quiet and relaxing. My family and I truly enjoyed ourselves. Jerry was there when we arrived and departed. He was a great host. We definitely recommend this location and plan on going back for a longer period of time. Thank you Jerry!
Awesome location and views!
Property was clean and had everything we needed. Jerry (the owner) was on site and available if needed. We absolutely loved the view and the location is great..a short walk to the beach and pier and right in between San Diego and LA! Highly recommended!!
Million Dollar View
Your home had a million dollar view! We loved it!! We were not sure what to do with the towels and sheets as there are normally precise instructions on what they want us to do. And we were not sure if we should just walk away without locking up. We went ahead and started the dishwasher. Maybe just a little more clear on instructions would be helpful but we loved it and tried to make sure it looked just as nice when we left. We did not have a pet. Thank you!!! We would love to come back! Verlee
Great location and views. Beachy decor. Some of the furnishings are ready for replacement but still good.
What a great place. Everything was spot on for our family. Our 3 kids loved it, especially the bunk beds. The location as advertised, a short walk to the pier and beach. My wife is already planning on booking for next year.
We truly enjoy hosting such high quality, happy families.
