About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 7

Wake up to ocean views, the gentle sounds of waves and seagulls in the distance, and the fresh scent of salty air. Spend the day on the beach flying kites or building sandcastle under big blue skies, walking along the pier in flip flops with an ice cream in hand and a collection of shells combed from the sand. Or rent bikes for the day to pedal around Imperial Beach, or up to Coronado Island along the Bayshore (Silver Strand) Bikeway. End your perfect day watching the sun set over the Pacific from your private balcony, while the stars and moon begin to light up the night sky. And fall asleep with the ocean breeze cooling your sun kissed cheeks before you drift off to sleep, dreaming of the new experiences tomorrow will bring.

Spend your dream vacation at Surf Passage, a gorgeous townhome just steps from the beach. This spacious 2 bedroom / 1.5 bathroom home of more than 1,200 square feet, three balconies & a private, secure garage. Surf Passage has all the comforts of home plus some amenities you would never expect to find in a vacation rental. The updated gourmet kitchen has shining stainless steel Viking appliances and granite countertops. The open floor plan provides ocean views from the living room, dining room and kitchen! Open the sliding glass doors to fill the house with a cool ocean breeze. Pick up a bag of marshmallows and roast them over the fire pit on your balcony to make Smores. Grab the wagon full of beach gear (chairs, umbrella, toys, boogie boards, volleyball) and spend the perfect day at the beach.

A bright and airy master retreat has vaulted ceilings, a beach view balcony and a separate loft with two twin beds and its own peak-a-boo view to the sea.The second bedroom is furnished with a queen and twin bed, vaulted ceiling and its own balcony. The main bathroom is situated between the two bedrooms and has a large, newly tiled shower and plenty of storage space. A convenient powder room is located on the main living floor. Please let us know if you require additional furniture for your baby or infant. We can provide a baby crib or a twin-size inflatable air mattress & a highchair, for a one time $25 setup fee.

Surf Passage is across the road from the beach in “Seacoast Villas” a small complex with 10 townhouses. Each property has its own private garage with direct access to the individual units – guests can also access their unit from the second floor common area.

Pack your swimsuit, flip flops and sunscreen, head to Imperial Beach and experience a nostalgic beach holiday at Surf Passage.

Imperial Beach: Experience a “Peaceful Easy Feeling” that won't let you down

Imperial Beach is like no other -- a throwback to a simpler, southern California beach town of days gone by, with miles of uncrowded, white sand beaches, magnificent views of the Coronado Islands and the downtown San Diego skyline. Imperial Beach (IB) is laid back, unpretentious and has a wonderful, “small town” vibe. You'll find everything you need within a short walk along the seacoast – beachfront parks with picnic tables and barbeques, a weekly farmer’s market (every Friday), beach volleyball nets, restaurants, waffle-cone ice cream, and retail shops. Stop by the Surf Hut (right across the street from Seacoast Villas) to rent surfboards, stand-up paddle boards, wetsuit, fins and bikes. Plus there are plenty more shops & restaurants along Palm Ave. Take a walk along the pier to gain a different perspective of the surfers and unrivaled views of San Diego: from Point Loma to Mexico. Extending almost 1,500 feet into the sea, the Imperial Beach Pier is also a great place to spot whales and dolphins swimming by just off-shore, or to try your luck fishing (BONUS: a license is not required for Pier fishing).

Imperial Beach is one of the most unique areas of San Diego, and lends itself to quiet getaways, family vacations and nostalgic trips down memory lane. IB is untouched by overdevelopment and void of the late-night party crowds, high density housing, congestion, traffic

Beautiful Peaceful Location!

  • 4 of 5

This is in the best location. Imperial Beach is beautiful and is one of the least crowded beaches we've been to. One of the best kept secrets of Southern California. The locals were super friendly. The condo itself was clean, the beds were comfortable and everything we needed was there. It was a wonderful vacation for our family!

The house was located with a beautiful view of the ocean. The trip to the beach was only a short block away, the rooms where nice and clean. All that you needed was in walking distance and if you felt the need to travel UBER was just a phone call away. We will be coming back to Imperial Beach and would recommend this place to all.

Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

Imperial Beach is a cute beach town, with many amenities! This condo is spacious and very clean. The property manager is very helpful, even provides an app for the condo and area. The beach is just across the street and not crowded. There are many restaurants within walking distance that my family enjoyed. We definitely recommend this condo!

Modern and very well equiped house with awesome view to the beach

  • 5 of 5

The house's location in Imperial Beach is very nice. You only have to cross the street to get to the beach and some small shops. The beach is not that overrun like other places in San Diego. It fit perfectly for us.

The house itself is very modern and clean. The kitchen is very well equipped and we really liked cooking there. The living room has a large Samsung Smart TV with a big variety of channels. There is also a Blu-Ray player with that you can access Netflix (if you have an account). In addition there is a BOSE sound system for Apple Airplay. WLAN was fast and everywhere in the house accessible.

The living room has a fireplace the heated the room quite well. Furthermore the balcony has a fire pit run by gas that provided a nice atmosphere in the evening.

Down in the garage were an additional refrigerator, a large washing machine and a large dryer. Everything was working perfectly. In the garage could stand one car, even a huge pickup (Ford 150).

There were some beach-chairs, balls, sand molds, boccia and a sun umbrella provided.

The contact to the home owner was really fast and friendly. Problems are fixed extremly fast and with complete satisfaction. Its possible to communicate by mail or SMS with the rental team and they find always a perfect solution.

We really enjoyed our stay at Surf Passage!
