Welcome to Surf Vacation Rentals

I have lived in San Diego for 35 years and have been doing rentals for over 23 years.

I love my job and love all the families I have met over the years. I have 3 kids... My son graduated from The Ohio State. My daughter graduated from Oregon. And my youngest daughter attended University of Arizona started her own clothing line ILYSMkinda Here is a link to her line

I was blessed to be a Ball Girl for the Padres for 19 years! I have 3 Top Ten ESPN Play of Day!

I used to work as a Promotion Director for a San Diego radio station. I can help you plan the greatest party ... anything from amazing caterers, guitarist, magician, theme parties, taco guy, valet parking, bartenders ... whatever you need I can find it!

I think you will like working with me and my staff. I am very lucky to have the best assistants, cleaning crews and handymen who have also all worked for me personally and professionally for over 20 years! We truly do our best to make sure you feel at home.

Please feel free to call, text or email me with any questions.

We also provide all your paper products and beach gear for a vacation ready home.


“Hands down the best air bnb everrrrrr if you have kids. It’s stocked with everything and Nina provides wonderful service and communication from Start to finish. My 1 year old twins were in absolute heaven! Toys, location to the beach, layout, all of it was absolutely perfect”


“2nd stay in this fantastic cluster of units 1 block off the beach. This particular unit was recently remodeled and it was gorgeous. Boho beach chic with top of the line appliances, TV’s and furniture. The unit was well appointed with everything you will need for a first class stay. Of special note was how comfortable the beds were. Most important is Nina Detrow with Surfside Vacation Rentals. She represents these Units with great professionalism; great communication, excellent responsiveness, and easy to do business with. She is Top Notch!”


“Nina is the absolute best when it comes to property management, as the many 5 star reviews of our vacation rental attest (most of which specifically reference Nina by name). She is organized, a great communicator and her friendly, extroverted nature makes her perfectly suited to this work. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without her!”


““Nina's place is beachside perfection! It's literally steps from the beach and she's provides everything you'll need without lugging a bunch of stuff to the condo, specifically, beach chairs and towels. The condo is spacious and well appointed. The master (upstairs) has an AC unit that really came in handy. The rest of the unit is fairly well cooled naturally. We had a fantastic stay and will definitely be back!””


“"We had a great trip and thoroughly enjoyed the property. The location can't be beat, as it's right across the street from a fantastic stretch of beach, and it is also just a short walk into the main part of Del Mar. The property has everything one could need - and I do mean everything. It is equipped as if it's someone's own vacation house, not just a rental where the owner is trying to cut corners. It was particularly helpful to not have to haul a bunch of books / toys / beach gear for our little ones - so much there for them to do. Wouldn't hesitate to book again"”

“"Great location! The home was clean and well stocked. The property manager is super responsive. Enjoyed our stay””


“I reserved this for a 2 week stay while recovering from brain surgery, we were required to stay close to the hospital. We were shocked at just how close you are to the beach, literally didn't even need to put shoes on. Del Mar is such a wonderful town! This condo had everything. EVERYTHING. Well stocked with blankets and pillows, very comfortable beds, all the beach toys you could ever need, and really well thought out decor. Everyone was comfortable. I can say it was the best Vrbo experience we've ever had. Nina was incredible, give that woman a raise! The pool was great, it was a quiet location even being next to the tracks, there was never a noise issue. I can't rate this high enough. Great family place for sure!”

“House 100 percent as advertised. We were there during a heat wave and one of the nights was pretty hard but the rest of the time it was ok not to have AC. House manager SUPER responsive and helpful. Perfect location - house well stocked.”


“Location, location location! Daily trips to the beach with nearby showers and restrooms - you cannot top this. The house was comfortable and clean and had plenty of room. The owner was very responsive and kind. We had a wonderful trip and would love to return. Thank you - we really appreciated the location and would love to return next year.”


“Thank you for the excellent stay at your property. It was a block away from the superb Del Mar beach, down the street from Jake’s restaurant and Powerhouse park, short walking distance to town. Excellent location. Our 2 year old grandson loved the trains which he could see passing behind the condo. Very fun. The condo was well equipped with all that we needed. Thank you for arranging for the 2 pack n plays and 2 high chairs. They were godsends! We loved the lovely safe patio. Rooms were comfortable and had everything we needed. In addition, the back shed had all the beach stuff one could want! Kitchen was great and well equipped. We hope to stay again.”
