About Ed and Sandy Hornyak

Sandy and I moved back to the San Diego area in 1991 after I retired from 21 years in the navy. Sandy retired from registered nursing about five years ago, and I retired two years ago after teaching first grade for fifteen years. So we are really, really, retired now and enjoying every minute of it! We like to travel and try to get away several times a year. We developed the travel bug during my last years in the navy since we were stationed in Rota, Spain for four years and then in the U.S. Embassy in Lisbon, Portugal for almost five. But sometimes we just like to 'travel' to our beautiful condo by the ocean for a few days every once in awhile.

Ed and Sandy Hornyak purchased this condo in 1993

Why Ed and Sandy Hornyak chose San Diego County

We've always dreamed of owning property by the water so we jumped at the chance to buy this place. Imperial Beach is so much quieter than San Diego's other beaches and that's what we like most about it.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with the view of the beach and ocean from the living room area. Even though you are away from it all, everything in San Diego is within easy reach.


Imperial Beach is a quieter and more family friendly alternative to San Diego's other, busier beaches but is only 20 minutes or so from all of San Diego's attractions such as the zoo, Balboa Park, etc.

We would like to share our experience with all out there. It was fantastic!!! We stayed the week of 4th of July and have to say that we had the best view of the IB fireworks show. In Addition, we were able to relax and felt very comfortable with our stay. It's has a real home feeling and our kids loved being so close to the beach. Thanks again Ed and Sandy for sharing your wonderful condo.

Owner's Response: I have to say that of all the great views the units in our building have, I like our view the best. We are on the top floor (3rd) which provides a terrific perspective, and the view features the beach and next door park, with the IB pier also a focal point.

Imperial Beach Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Ed and Sandy's home.

Everything that you need for a relaxing break. The house is well equipped and in a fantastic location, the beach was not too busy and there were shops and restaurants within easy reach.

Ed did everything to make sure that our arrival and departure was easy. Keys were sent to us (whilst we were travelling, Ed sent them to our motel that we stopped at before our visit). A helpful list of local amenities, and attractions was also sent. Ed called us at the condo to make sure we had everything we needed. The fruit was a nice touch. Clean, and comfortable with electrical equipment that was modern and all working well, a great sized home. I would have no reservations in giving Ed and Sandy 5 stars and recommending them as hosts. Imperial Beach itself is a bit go a gem, quiet off the tourist trail so a fantastic break from the hustle and bustle.

Thank you for having us Ed and Sandy.

Helen and family.

Owner's Response: Imperial Beach is, indeed, a gem that is a wonderful place for families. Nice, quiet, walkable neighborhood and a great place to relax. We try hard to provide a smooth check-in process, to have everything in the condo that you might need, and to give a lot of info about the local area.

Imperial Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The location was great and the property was perfect. The owners of the property were very responsive to your needs and great to deal with. Property was clean and perfect for my family of 4. Fruit basket was nice touch and tickets for boat ride in harbor was greatly appreciated. If I return to imperial beach I would absolutely want to stay at same location. Thank you for the great hospitality.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week in Imperial Beach 🌊?.. condo is in an excellent location -- super easy to access beach. Our kids aged 13, 7 & 5 loved surfing, swimming and digging sand castles. They also loved the pool and hot tub. The condo is very cozy and perfect for low key relaxing week at the beach. Great value for money.

Ed and Sandy were super helpful and friendly. For Southern California we were a little unlucky with the weather in late July .. some cloudy, overcast days but it didn't stop us having fun. Thank you for a lovely vacation.!!

We loved our stay in IB and in this condo. Beautiful views and a great beach for my grandkids to begin to surf. The condo was clean and comfortable. Could use some updating but still rates a 5! Thank you!
