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 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.

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Ed and Sandy's condo. The view was fabulous and it had plenty of space for our twin 3 1/2 year old boys (they especially loved the playground that was just downstairs!). Absolutely gorgeous sunsets. It was great to get some groceries and cook most of our meals there, as well as being within walking distance to restaurants and cafes. Being able to go walk down and play on the beach was a highlight. San Diego is a great place for kids :)

Thank you again for a wonderful stay.

True Gem with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Ed's place. The check-in instructions were pin-point, the basket of fruit waiting for us was a very pleasant surprise :). The condo itself is very well furnished and has truly awesome views - right on the beach! Imperial beach is a nice quite place to stay at while visiting San Diego. It is about 30 mins drive from the major attractions. Will definitely be back!

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Sandy and Ed's condo, it was very comfortable. They were very responsive and helpful. We received keys and a map to our home and we felt at ease coming to San Diego. They even let us check in a few hours early - so great! The condo is close to the I5 so it's easy to get around, and, only 15 min to Coronado! We have a young child and this 2 BR was so perfect. Lots of room and space for everyone. The beach is literally outside your door and there is a small park for the kiddos. There are beach toys on the patio so no need to buy anything. We even saw high chairs in the closet - and pulled one out for visiting friends. We had a couple of issues with lighting and Sandy and Ed were quick to respond.

There are lots of food options withing minutes of walking and places to get groceries. We ate dinner out but made lunch and breakfast.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place. Thank you Sandy and Ed!!!

Beautiful Condo in Imperial Beach

  • 5 of 5

This condo is located adjacent to the beach with a beautiful view of the ocean from the balcony. It was clean and well appointed with everything we needed for a long weekend of rest and relaxation. Located in close proximity to San Diego it wasn't hard to find things to keep us busy in the area when the weather didn't cooperate for beach time. The owners were wonderful making sure that we arrived and settled in. We will definitely be back!

Great for families!

  • 5 of 5

Lots of kids things like beach toys, pack-n-play, high chair and booster seats. Overall the kitchen was stocked well with utensils. Very convenient to SD, the beach, & Coronado. Imperial Beach was a nice community and we loved the nastalgic candy store. We also liked the secure building with pool and sauna!

Great place for a family!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous view and a great place to relax for our family of 6. Our kids loved the heated pool and hot tub. The condo is clean and had the amenities we needed. We would come back!

Owner's Response: People frequently ask me if the pool is heated and I have to admit I've never actually stuck my toe in to see. Sounds like it's good.

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.
