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.

Condo was clean and amazing beach view

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean and had a home feeling. The ocean view is breathe taking and listening to the waves was so relaxing. The condo complex is well secured because you need a key to get in, even the elevator in the parking area required a key. Shops and stores are walking distance. Everything was just perfect. My family and I can't wait to go back!

Great Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week in this Imperial Beach condo. The location was great. Close to the beach and the pier. Nice little restaurants within walking distance. Excellent coffee and breakfast sandwiches at Katie's Cafe. A delicious burger and beer at the Coronodo Brewing Co.The condo was clean and comfortable and spacious. Two full bathrooms were perfect for two couples. We loved to have coffee in the morning on the deck and watch the surfers and the waves. We had a great time playing in the ocean during the day and it was nice that there was a good supply of beach towels and a couple of beach chairs. In the evening the sunsets were gorgeous and we liked to walk the beach and the pier. We also made use of the pool, hot tub and the BBQ area. Imperial beach is a nice quiet little beach town that is perfect for a relaxing vacation. Ed was very easy to deal with and very pleasant. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend this condo to friends and family planning a vacation to this area.

Owner's Response: You did a great job of taking advantage of all the condo's amenities as well as those of the local area. You don't have to go to the "big city" to have a great time at our condo. (But it's available if you choose.)

Can't beat the location on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Spacious and clean condo literally steps from the beach! We had a small issue with the internet connection on our first eve and the owners called the provider and had them call the condo to fix the issue (which was much appreciated for the college student along with us who needed to do homework)! There were plenty of beach towels and linens provided, too. Waking up and having coffee on the deck while watching the waves was one of my favorite parts of being there! The condo is close to several restaurants and mini markets, too; my husband bought coffee every day from Katy's Cafe and love it! You will not be disappointed staying here!!

Owner's Response: I don't know what we'd do if we didn't have that balcony overlooking the beach and ocean! We've received so many comments from guests about how they've loved having coffee out there in the morning and/or enjoying a glass of wine for sunset!

Great condo with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. Location is wonderful with good beach access and beautiful views. The condo is spacious and clean. Our family had so much fun and the owners were easy to work with. This was our first time doing a condo rental and I have no complaints. We were surprised how much stuff it had in terms of beach chairs, beach toys, etc. The one suggestion I might make is it would be nice if when they send the key there was a basic list of what to expect at the condo such as beach towels, pack and play, etc. I brought along some things that were really not necessary because the place had so much. Would recommend this to anyone.

Owner's Response: I think the list idea is a good one. Without giving a precise inventory, I can see that it would be good for our guests to know that yes, we have beach items available in the condo such as towels, chairs and toys.

wonferful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property. The view of the ocean and having it only steps away was my favorite thing. So nice not having to drive. Property was clean and well kept. We enjoyed SeaWorld and the Zoo.

Thank you

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 loved this condo. Amazing view! We were able to watch the dolphins swim by every morning and evening from the comforts of the family room, dining room or balcony. You can walk to the beach in about a minute. Nice beach with lifeguards to help keep you safe. Found lots of sea glass along the beach during my morning walks. Several good places to eat within walking distance (highly recommend IB Taco Shop, Filippi's Pizza Grotto and the Tin Fish). The condo is very quiet! No people walking by, no doors slamming or conversations being heard from the next unit. Peace and quiet! We slept well!! The pool and hot tub area were very nice and never crowded. Several times we had the place to ourselves. The condo is located in a great area, with lots to see and do close by. We loved our time in IB. Thank you again Ed and Sandy!

Owner's Response: You have to solemnly swear never to reveal how great the vacations are in Imperial Beach - we don't want it to get too crowded! Just kidding. We're very happy you enjoyed the "walkability" aspect of the area. Thanks also for the restaurant recommendations. We like to inform future renters of the places that others have enjoyed. It seems like every year we add a new place or two that proves to be very popular.

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.
