Overview

San Diego County Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom 2 bathroom, sleeps 6

While sunbathing on a private patio, you can watch your toddlers at the state-of-the-art playground (safety engineered, with foam-cushioned flooring), wave to your teens on the basketball or volleyball courts beyond, or take pictures of your friends riding the ocean waves or perhaps fishing from the pier. With no boardwalk, your patio practically touches the sand, yet sits comfortably away from the activity. All you hear outside are the sweet sounds of the ocean waters. Later, you can have everyone meet at the jacuzzi or the heated swimming pool, all enclosed within the secure building and all nestled within a lovely tropical garden. Linens, all towels, beach chairs, and even boogie boards are available for your use.

Make use of outdoor BBQ grills (gas), and try working out in the exercise gym. On day two, try taking a seven mile walk along an undeveloped beach to the historic Hotel Del Coronado, or rent bikes to tour the mansions along the way.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • limited accessibility
  • non smoking only

Fantastic location and views

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time here and would definitely stay here again if we are staying in Imperial Beach.

Our first time staying in Imperial Beach. Great for what we wanted which was just to kick back and relax. It is a small area with limited but quality choices within quick walking distance. If you are looking for excitement, probably not the place for you. If you are looking for nice relaxing time with the family then give it a try. We drove to the USS Midway Museum in San Diego via 75 along the Silver Strand State Beach which is a direct shot to Coronado. It was only a 20 minute drive or so to the museum and downtown SD.

My view of the condo:

Enjoyed our stay here and will consider it again for a future rental. Furnishings were fine four our family of four including two teenagers. Kids in the room with two twin daybed style beds. Master BR had a comfy king bed. We are not nitpickers with our bedding. Master BR was large with separate shower and nice tub and two sink vanity and toilet in its own little room. Guest bath was large, two sinks and combo shower/tub. Kitchen not huge but plenty for our needs. Stainless appliances. Flat TVs in both bedrooms which we didn't use. Flat LCD Samsung TV in great room. Dining area with seating for four at table and two at counter. Plenty of spare bedding material to curl up with in living area with two couches, recliner and convenient side tables. The condo is older and the decor may be dated for some. We don't usually care as long as everything is clean which it was.

Condo Positives:

1. Basically right on the beach and overlooking the public park.

2. These condos adjoin Barrels restaurant which we enjoyed a couple of times and only a block or two to other eating establishments. Our favorite was Coronado Brewing Company brewpub (nice happy hour food and drink deals from 2-6) just a block or so away. Market and liquor store are also very close.

3. Huge patio area with lots of furniture.

Could use improvement:

1. A decor update would improve the unit for those expecting the latest styles and trends.

2. The latches that keep the little screen trapdoors closed that provide access to opening/closing the windows are all broken with age.

3. No leftover spices. Removed with each visit? We purchased salt/pepper and ketchup.

4. Arrival/departure instructions could be better. Wasn't quite sure what to do with keys on the way out.

5. No signal with AT&T in unit.

For us, the minor negatives are far outweighed by the positives.

Reeeelaaax

This place was perfect for us. The sound of the waves each morning and evening, a constant reminder of being on vacation. The place was very clean in spite of much of the decor being older. Beds were comfortable and there were plenty of blanket/pillow combinations. Some of the furniture is new since the pictures were take. The pool was super easy access and the grounds are impeccably kept. The park was active, but only during the daytime - lots of family and community type activity. Quiet at night. There are dining options within walking distance and some smaller convenience type stores, as well as the pier. This location is exactly what you'd expect a small beach town to be. Views were spectacular. A great place for people who like to contemplate, read, dine and drink outside and are looking to truly get away from the hustle and bustle of the workaday world.

Beautiful oceanfront condo with amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this condo. It was very clean and comfortable and the view of the ocean out the family room windows is breathtaking. The pool and hot tub are nice and there are a lot of great places to eat out in the area. We plan to stay again.

San Diego Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at a few other VRBO since there are 5 in our family & we often travel with 2 other relatives. The kitchen makes it easy & less expensive by allowing us to cook a few meals at the condo. It would be nice to have a cookie sheet or foil for baking pizza or cookies. It was very nice having assigned parking spaces. We had a rough first night which was sort of my fault...we got in late & I assumed the air was just taking a while to cool down but it wasn't working so we had a very warm night & I was a bit worried since the next day was Sunday but they came out & got it cool for us...on a Sunday! The owner/manager were very apologetic about our first night issue & got it fixed ASAP. The beach is well patrolled & the area is nice, clean & quiet. We felt very safe. A suggestion would be a detailed email about keys, garage, elevator, places to get groceries, wifi directions, favorite restaurants (skip Carrows by the way), things to do near by, things to do upon leaving...

We visited the San Diego Zoo & Seaworld...both were awesome! My absolute favorite adventure was to explore the La Jolla Beach area...we found it by accident & all enjoyed climbing the rocks/cliffs. It is well worth the drive. The little park right outside the condo is great for smaller children. We enjoyed watching the kids & surfers off the back patio each morning. It is cool when the sun goes down so bring a jacket.

Winter in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

Nicely decorated, with updated appliances. Conveniently location to pool, which our grandkids enjoyed on several occasions.

With temperatures in the 60's to 70's . . . we enjoyed beach walks and Imperial Beach stores and staff.
