About Laura Cyphert

20 years ago we moved to Imperial Beach with the US Navy, and rented a furnished apartment near the ocean. We left 6 months later to live near the University where Laura attended college, and it took us nearly 20 years to come back.. to our dream condo with amazing ocean views. From the beach you can see from Mexico to downtown San Diego. Still far from the San Diego crowds you can experience that magical place we discovered 20 years ago. Now we live there 'part time' and when we are not there we share our dream with others. We are glad to have you as our guest and to share in our dream come true.

Laura Cyphert purchased this condo in 2012

Why Laura Cyphert chose San Diego County

Enjoy the beach without leaving your condo (if you want!); white water and pier views from the living room, including the sound of ocean waves. Or enjoy your private desk with lounge chairs, and outdoor dining.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is close to all the IB attractions.. .a short walk to many restaurants or the IB pier. Plus there is a surf break here which attracts surfers from all over San Diego. And if you want to enjoy more than just the beach scene, you are just a short drive to the rest of San Diego's many attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The location is incredible - direct ocean front views of the sand and waves and pier. We loved watching the waves from the comfort of the living room and private patio. We found so many sand dollars on the beach. And our dog LOVED the dog beach area. Thank you!

Fantastic location, perfect condo with nice large patio on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing 3 day stay at the condo! It was in good shape and provided ample amenities. Beach/Ocean views from the large patio was a real treat. Quick Uber/Lyft to downtown made it easy to explore the city. While in IB we literally where less than a half mile walk to great restaurants and bars. Directions and communication from owner was clear and concise. Great trip had by all. I strongly recommend booking this condo.

Fantastic view! Everything you need for a great stay in IB!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the fantastic patio! The view was just amazing. The condo was roomy and very comfortable for 4 adults. We did have a bit of an issue flushing the hall bathroom toilet. No big deal once we figured it out but it should probably be checked. Other than that it was awesome! We loved our stay!

View was great! Rooms clean and comfortable. Patio was another plus.

  • 3 of 5

The location and the view from our condo was excellent. The condo was clean and comfortable. However, I do have some complaints.

1. The lockbox was VERY difficult to open and impossible to return keys to.

2. Obviously, you knew when we booked the rental that the pool and hot tub would NOT be available. However, this information was not shared with us until right before our arrival.

3. When we needed information from you during a medical emergency, we received no feedback. However, when we found it difficult to return the keys to the lockbox, you managed to contact us.

Normally, when I visit San Diego (this was visit 21) I stay in a hotel but chose to stay at your facility on this trip to make it extra special for my granddaughter. Because of her special needs, swimming in the ocean is a difficult option so having an indoor pool accessible was to be an advantage. I had stayed there with friends (Eikers) last October and had been pleased during that visit so chose your location. I plan to visit San Diego again as our daughter continues to live there, but will probably research other facilities.

Location is everything!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is about as perfect as we could've wanted for a (NOT crowded) beach front spot, with amenities and accommodations to make the stay comfortable. The furnishings were nice, the ocean waves were constantly peaceful, the pier was right there & very cool. If only the pool and hot tub hadn't been under renovation at the exact time we stayed, it would have been beyond perfect. I will look here in the future, and recommend to friends. Imperial Beach (and we visited La Holla and Ocean beaches) is superb...less crowded, warmer, and cleaner sand. And IB town had much delicious dining to enjoy: fish, shrimp, crab, yum! Loved!
