Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Superbly appointed Beach Front Condo located on the sand with spectacular Oceanfront View. Family oriented laid back atmosphere right on the beach with a 180 degree gorgeous view of the beach and pier from the patio. Beautifully and warmly furnished, 1500 square foot oceanfront condo boasts a fully equipped kitchen, flat screen TVs in all rooms, free wifi, 2 full baths with tubs and showers, with an elevated covered deck that provides an unobstructed view of the beach area, ocean, pier, downtown San Diego and the Coronado Islands. The condo is located in a small quiet building with private secure parking for two cars (with garage door opener). Pamper yourself in the master suite's oval air-bath bubble tub with a separate walk in shower. The guest bath has a full bath / shower. The condo is suitable for handicap with doorways wide enough for most handicap equipment. In addition, the condo has a wonderful gas fireplace in the living room. The condo is an animal free area; pets / animals are not allowed. The unit is non-smoking.

The condo is located in Imperial Beach, which is at the southern end of the Silver Strand State Beach, just 8 miles south of Coronado. Coronado is located right across the bay from downtown San Diego. Most major attractions in San Diego (Zoo, Sea World, Balboa Park, Old Town, Seaport Village, Mexico) are all roughly a 20-minute drive from our condo. The main thing that distinguishes Imperial Beach from other beach communities is the uncrowded, quiet beach. Our condo faces the beach to the west and is adjacent to the wildlife refuge (with visitor center) to the east.

The condo comes equipped with everything you could possibly need. In addition, there are bicycles, sand toys, beach towels, a barbeque, beach chairs, boogey boards, beach umbrella, board games, books to read, DVDs, a Thomas Bros. Street map of San Diego County, and several books with day hikes or day trip ideas in San Diego. We also provide brochures with information on restaurants, shopping areas, local attractions, boat rentals, golf courses, etc.

Over the past 2 decades, San Diego has evolved past its old reputation as a slow-growth, conservative Navy town graced with 70 miles of fabulous sandy coastline. Amid all the change, San Diego is still first and foremost a big outdoor playground. You can swim, snorkel, windsurf, kayak, bicycle, in-line skate, and partake of other diversions in or near the water, as well as in the mountains and desert. Just pack a laid-back attitude along with your sandals and swimsuit, and prepare for a warm welcome to California's grown-up beach town. The condo is available for rentals of one month or longer.

AMAZING ocean views!

  • 5 of 5

You are literally on the ocean. The condo is not in San Diego like we thought but it was a great surprise to be in Imperial Beach..great little coastal town close to everything. Only around 20 minutes to zoo and downtown San Diego. 15 minute drive to Coronado Island. A lot of quaint cafes within walking distance. Condo is as advertised. Bedrooms, floors and baths are all updated-kitchen and living areas could use some updating but everything was very clean and you can't beat the location/view. Morning coffee on the patio watching dolphins and surfers!!!

One of the best vacations ever!

  • 5 of 5

The house was so comfortable and clean. The beach is super close and isn't too touristy which is wonderful. Me and my family had a lovely stay and hope to be back soon!

All as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

All as advertised -- Big beautiful uncrowded beach that's RIGHT THERE. Five steps from the deck to the sand. Clean neutral furnishings, Krurig coffee machine, great kitchen knife set, beach toys, gas fireplace, grill on the deck, on and on. Bathrooms recently refurbished, furniture is all clean and seems new. Excellent communication with owners. Easy move-in and move-out procedures.

Negatives? The kitchen is a little small and my foodie wife doesn't like the tile countertops. But it's packed with good stuff. Including a crockpot. Was great to set it cooking all day while we were at Legoland, come home and a real hot meal was waiting. Blender, muffin pans, good saucepans, and a working grill on the deck. Wife bought her own knifes, and ended up not using them.

Been coming to Imperial Beach for seven years, and we think it's getting better. Nice new restaurent has opened, Friday farmers market. Second time at this condo, and the refurbishments turned it from really good to great. Already looking at kids school calender to book for next year.

Perfect Spot for a Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beach front condo. The ocean was literally just outside our door. The kids could come and go which made it so convenient. The place was very nice with everything we needed. We would rent this place again.

Perfect long weekend escape location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Greg's place in conjunction with some business travel. He accommodated some timing changes for us that really helped out. An excellent and responsive host. The condo was actually better than advertised, and looked newly updated. Comfortable beds and a really neat layout of the unit. It so close to the beach that we really didn't leave much other than to walk the beach and eat fish tacos on the pier, about a 5 min walk. We will definitely be back!
