About the property

Enjoy the ocean view and breezes from this beautiful two bedroom , two bath condo. Full kitchen, washer, dryer, cable TV with DVD player. Wireless internet. Swimming pool, Jacuzzi, bar-b-que, underground parking included. The local area is quiet and uncrowded - perfect for walking around or relaxing at the beach.

Imperial Beach is quieter and more family friendly than San Diego's other, more crowded beaches. Yet most of San Diego's main attractions like the zoo, Coronado, and Sea World are within a 30 minute drive.

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 Imperial Beach

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.

  • 5 of 5

This place was the best we have stayed at using VRBO. The owners Ed and Sandy really care about your stay at their condo, they kept in contact with us throughout to make sure we got there and that we had everything as well as checking in right before we left and wished us a safe trip home.

This place has the best location to beach, playground for our young grandsons, and restaurants.

Next time we go down to San Diego we will definitely be calling for this place.

Beach condo delivers all it promises

  • 4 of 5

Ed and Sandy are generous and thoughtful hosts- a beautiful basket of fruit greeted my arrival. They acclimatized me not only to their condo but also to the local attractions. Ed had arranged washing of the windows so that I could enjoy the stunning ocean sunsets. Sandy had bought many supplies and all were placed in drawers and cupboards in apple-pie order. This condo is clean and comfortable with everything one needs for a relaxing holiday. Their unit is in a large complex, Imperial Beach Club, with heated pool, hot tub, barbecues and picnic area surrounded by lush and fragrant plants. All of the gardens are meticulously maintained. Location is ideal with beach access, playgrounds, beach volleyball, good restaurants and the fishing pier. The nearby Tijuana River Estuary and Conservation area is great for birdwatchers. Those wanting to surf or swim in the ocean should consider that the beach may be closed some days due to raw sewage sometimes being released from Tijuana. The city government has launched a law suit to resolve this issue.

Nice property, good location, just far enough away from the real crowded locations.

  • 4 of 5

Had a nice vacation, IB Forum had good food and great service, and the Brigantine was very good. Pier nice and close and just out the door the beach. Nice having 2 bathrooms as we only have 1 at home that I share with 3 girls! View was great!

Nice condo, clean, property laid out well, good location.

  • 4 of 5

We found the condo to be well laid out, very clean and comfortable - even though it was somewhat dated. Condo was supplied well for visitors (coffee/filters, condiments, soaps, laundry soap/drier sheets, many towels, washer/dryer, dishwasher soap, non-stick pots/pans, etc.) With the condo complex being right on the beach it was convenient to walk around, and on the beach. The grounds were in very good condition and well laid out. The complex is under security, with all gates lockable and underground parking, with it being secured also. The stores, restaurants, necessities were all in close proximity.

There needs to be an onsite office for the complex so that issues that might crop up can be reported immediately. Did have a couple issues with the elevator not working - did not last long each time. And, the water was off for a few hours (believe it was related to the storm that hit San Diego area on January 9th - 10th), with no office to report it. Did call Ed (owner of condo) and explain to him what took place.

Definitely would use it again, if we are in the area and it is available. Enjoyed our stay. Would have given another star if not for the problems, even though they were somewhat minor. Did not meet Ed, however, he was very friendly on the phone and helpful as much as possible.

Thanks Ed,

San Diego Stay

  • 5 of 5

San Diego is truly a wonderful place to visit. The condo was warm and inviting; there was even a complimentary fruit basket placed out for the guests. (THANK YOU VERY MUCH ED&SANDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) It was clean and had everything necessary for a comfortable time. Our family greatly enjoyed our vacation in California. Thank you for a delightful stay!

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.
