About the property

Cool, Bright & Airy with Beach View Balconies + Loft + Private Garage

When you daydream about your perfect San Diego vacation, what comes to mind?

Sunshine, blue skies, and palm trees? Sunning on the beach and frolicking in the surf? Relaxing evenings dining outdoors, gushing over spectacular sunsets and falling asleep to the sound of the waves and the refreshing ocean air? We've got you covered!

The moment you open the front door at Ocean Breeze, you will enter vacation mode as you take in the calming view of the Pacific, erasing all the stresses of the world.

This gorgeous, two bedroom townhouse in Imperial Beach has it all! The bright and airy floor plan provides terrific beach views and cool ocean breezes in a spectacular corner unit at Seacoast Villas, just across the street from the beach. The main floor has fantastic ocean views from the fully stocked kitchen, the dining room and the newly updated living room. Open the windows and step out on your ocean view balcony and flood the house with the cool ocean air. On those rare, cool evenings, you'll appreciate the gas fireplace. You'll also find a convenient powder room on the main floor.

You'll be able to stay connected in your "home away from home" -- Ocean Breeze has super high-speed Wi-Fi Internet and Premium Cable with on-demand streaming of your favorite episodes and movies, including HBO, Showtime and Cinemax. The state-of-the-art remote control allows you to search for programs or channels using voice commands -- you won't have to study the channel line up, just search by voice the channels and programs you want to watch.

Upstairs, you'll find two bedrooms, each furnished with queen beds and the main bathroom with a luxurious marble tiled shower/tub combo. Above the master bedroom is a sleeping loft with two twin beds. Plus, guests have the convenience of off-street parking in a private, secure garage, equipped with new front load washer & dryer. Beach lovers will find a red Radio Flyer wagon stocked with beach chairs, boogie boards, beach toys, beach towels and an umbrella.

Imperial Beach is one of the last remaining, “Classic Southern California” beach towns -- great for families with kids or those wanting to relax in a low-key environment without a worry in the world. Walk along the beach collecting shells and sand dollars – or stroll along Seacoast Drive for a walking tour of some pretty cool public art installations. Join a game of beach volleyball or grab an ice cream cone and meander out along the wooden pier to watch the surfers and locals fishing for dinner.

There is no better place to spend lazy days sunbathing or building sandcastles, and relaxing evenings admiring a gorgeous sunset over the Pacific.

Ocean Breeze is located in a quiet, low-key neighborhood so you might be surprised to find two dozen restaurants and coffee shops along with a handful of convenience stores and gift shops within a 10-minute (1/2)-mile walk along Seacoast Drive or Palm Ave. There is a Farmers Market held every Friday at Pier Plaza with farm fresh produce, prepared foods, flowers, gifts & souvenirs. A little further away are grocery stores, banks, pharmacies and even more restaurants.

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 delivery fee.

Plenty of sunlight, cool ocean breezes and to-die for views of the beach. Book your San Diego get-away at "Ocean Breeze" today!

About Birgit + Cindy + Paula

We fell in love with Imperial Beach on our first visit in 2014 when we started managing vacation rentals in Seacoast Villas. It reminded Paula of her childhood growing up in Huntington Beach in the 70s before all the over development crowds. IB has a wonderful, family-friendly atmosphere with loads of restaurants within a short walk along Seacoast Drive and Palm Avenue. IB is just miles from Coronado and San Diego's top attractions, but a world away - relaxing, peaceful and just perfect.

Keith and Paula

Birgit + Cindy + Paula purchased this townhome in 2017

Why Birgit + Cindy + Paula chose San Diego County

After managing this awesome beach-view, vacation rental since 2014, we jumped at the chance to purchase this gem in May 2017. Of all the properties in "Seacoast Villas", Ocean Breeze has always been our favorite - for the view, and the wonderful, cooling ocean breeze in this unique corner location.

What makes this townhome unique

We can't say enough about the ocean view -- you can watch the waves from the main floor (kitchen / dining room / living room and balcony), with an even better "elevated" view from the master bedroom & balcony -- and from the newly furnished sleeping loft! The corner location provides wonderful light and a cooling ocean breeze.

Happy memories, outstanding accomodation!

  • 5 of 5

From the first time I talked to Briget I knew this was the place for our annual Grand Canyon Girls reunion. She answered all questions thoroughly and gave detailed descriptions of the condo. It was everything she said and more. Clean, well maintained and amenities were accurate. The location was beautiful with a view of the ocean from two balconies. The "ocean breeze" kept it cool and the sound of the ocean was peaceful and relaxing.

Coronado Island was an easy drive away as were unique malls and shops. Ye Old Pl.ank Inn (bar) provided a fun filled night of pool playing and local folk. An enjoyable walk out to the end of the pier is delightful expierence filled with salty air and sunshine plus an outstanding view.

I would highly recommend this rental to others and I plan on returning myself.

Nestor/Brush families highly recommend!!!

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Breeze is the best unit in entire complex. Great views and ocean breezes. So close to the beach, plenty of boards, towels and toys for kids of all ages. Unit was clean and comfortable. We will be back! Folks who booked our stay were wonderful and accommodating to our family. Loved the garage and easy instructions to gain access and checkout. Again, go with Ocean Breeze best unit in the complex. Thanks for making the family's first beach wedding a success. Now we will come back with no agenda but just to relax and enjoy. Again, thank you.

Relaxing condo, Beautiful view, Great location!

  • 5 of 5

While looking for a place to stay during a last minute family emergency, I wanted something that was walking distance to the beach, privacy for myself and my grandparents, and a place to enjoy 4 days visiting with family. We had a late night arrival, but the condo was set up and easy to access without any issues. There were fresh tulips on the table, and a basket of goodies that tied us over until I could walk to the market in the morning. Kitchen was well stocked with anything we needed for the stay and the furniture was clean and comfortable!

Pros:

-Lots of mirrors in the bedrooms and bathroom areas! Definitely a plus if you've ever stayed in a rental that lacked mirrors!

-Having a bathroom upstairs and downstairs added for privacy if needed

-View was awesome, many mornings and evenings spent sitting on the patio with coffee or wine enjoying the view

-all the furniture was very comfortable and relaxing, including the beds

-We didn't have a car, but our family that visited us there did, so parking in the garage was really nice

Cons:

-The upstairs tub drain wouldn't seal which wouldn't allow my grandma to take a bath, but after alerting the rental company, should be fixed.

-there's a step down from the kitchen to the living area and my elderly grandpa fell a couple times (i'm sure more due to his lack of memory than it actually being "dangerous"), but there's a rug at the bottom that should help point it out. Perhaps a piece of trim or something that helps make the step stand out...?

-Lots of stairs, which is fine if your my age, but if you're elderly, it may cause issues...

-As other renters noticed, the street noise can be annoying, especially with loud motorcycles going through. BUT if all the doors are shut, it actually blocks a lot of the noise.

-the instructions indicated that the recycle bins were in the alley. I assumed that meant the alley behind the condo, but the home association president pointed out they were in the back of the garage area, not next to the dumpster. We got the recycle put in, but it took us a bit to find it

Overall, the stay there was great and I wouldn't hesitate going back. For the price compared to other rentals in the area, you definitely get your money's worth! The other people staying in the other condos were very nice, and we even met the home association president for the condo who was very nice and helpful. Communication between myself and the rental company was done thru email and text which was great

We feel very sorry for your grandma's inconvenience about the upstairs tub seal, and we have already looked into the issue. The Next Stop: San Diego team will make sure to inform the new owner of this home that the step from the kitchen to the living room area needs to get marked. We really enjoyed hosting your stay and sincerely hope to see you again in the future. Remember that we offer our returning guests a 10% off discount on the nightly rent. All the best, Birgit

Sunrise was to perfection!

  • 5 of 5

The location of Ocean Breeze is second to none. The view of the ocean from the two patios is 100% accurate. The beach is really that close! Our internal clocks were on CST so we enjoyed taking the SHORT walk to the beach each morning to crash the waves on the boogie boards (provided), then we made sure to return each evening to watch the colorful sunsets. Be sure to bring your camera because you will want to remember the beauty of the sky, waves of the ocean, and more. We definitely recommend taking the short walk to Coronado Brewery Co., IB Tacos and IB Pizza. The food was affordable and definitely worth it. We also loved visiting with the kind locals who were so friendly and helpful. Our family of 4 enjoyed the convenient location of the property, the safety of the garage parking, the comfort of the condo, access to laundry, the beach chairs/toys, and kitchen amenities. With the windows open at night, be prepared for quite a bit of street noise. Earplugs might be helpful if you are a light sleeper. We visited both Vons and Wally's grocery stores, and while I prefer to shop locally owned stores...we found Vons to be a better stocked. We can't say enough kind words about the owners/managers. We had a couple small hiccups with the boogie boards and grill, and they were absolutely exceptional at resolving the issues quickly. Their responsiveness, care, and attention to guests is truly admirable. We are so grateful for such a fun and relaxing vacation!

Rating Details:

The property manager was very helpful.

The vacation rental was spotless.

I was very happy with the location.

I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

This rental is well represented in the description, pictures and reviews. The location is central, close to beach with a nice variety of bars and restaurants easily within walking distance. The property is clean and well stocked with comfortable furniture. The carpet has several stains, probably due for a replacement but other floors are stone/tile and in great shape. Parking was a big plus even during the quiet month we were there, parking would have been a problem. There were a few minor fixes needed, toilet paper holder broken, garbage disposal in poor shape and sliding screen doors to decks hard to open and close but they are always difficult to keep functional. We enjoyed the deck frequently throughout the day. The beds were comfortable and linens clean and well cared for. I would recommend this property.
