About Carol Gavan

My husband and I brought this condo on our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We live in Poway about 45 minutes from the condo. We have lived at the same address in Poway since 1975. We both grew up in Orange County, graduated from Cal Poly Pomona and Long Beach State University and married in 1962. Our daughter has been married since 1991 and has two children. Our son has been married since 1993 and also has two children. Our family gets together often at the beach, Lake Powell, Colorado Camping and Park City. Family has alway been the center of our life.

Carol Gavan purchased this condo in 1992

Why Carol Gavan chose San Diego County

We love Imperial Beach. It is one of the best kept secrets.

The sand is beautiful. The people are friendly. Our condo is on the ocean. We love the sunsets over the Imperial Beach Pier, Coronado Islands and Point Loma. Our family all loves to come here.

What makes this condo unique

There are not many condos on a beautiful sandy beach. We have the 180 degree of the ocean. The sunsets are beautiful. We like to hear the sound of the surf. It is a thrill to see the dolphins, pelicans and whales.

Excellent Stay, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This is a great and well kept unit and complex. It sits above the beach with great views of downtown SD and Coronado. Good restaurants nearby. Underground parking. Carol runs a tight ship and keeps a very clean property. All owners should be like her!

Happy to be back!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Carol's lovely condo, and again it was perfect. Carol was lovely to deal with. Unfortunately, we had a medical emergency AND car trouble on our drive to California, and when I called to let Carol know that we wouldn't be checking in on the day we planned, she seemed truly concerned. When we did finally arrive safely (and with everyone healthy again), she seemed as relieved as we felt! It was so rejuvenating to be able to relax on the balcony and watch the waves, the surfers, the dolphins, and the sunsets. The condo is very well equipped. Our kids loved playing on the beach, splashing in the waves and boogie boarding, as well as playing on the playground next door. It was a wonderful vacation for us all. The kids constantly ask when we get to back to 'our condo'. :) Also, we can't recommend Sea 180, the restaurant at the Marriott just down the way, highly enough. The food is incredible, they have a wonderful happy hour, the sangria is to die for, and the views are spectacular. We can't wait to visit this perfect vacation spot again soon!

Fabulous rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently stayed at this condo. We really enjoyed the stay. Everything is absolutely just like the pictures. The condo is clean, close to Coronado and San Diego. It if stocked with tons of beach items, so you really don't need to bring anything. Carol, the owner is fabulous. We are already planning on our next stay and would highly recommend this rental.

Fabulous home!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this condo -- ocean views, amazing sunsets, great beach! Nice upgrades, but still has a cozy feel. We're clean fanatics and usually feel the need to wipe down the kitchen and bathroom in most places, but not here. The condo is very well equipped and has everything you can possibly imagine. We were initially concerned about the location being too far south, but found it within an easy 30 minutes or less from most of the places we like to check-out in San Diego. Plus, it’s super easy to get to Coronado. Carol was wonderful to work with, patiently answered all of our questions, and is easily accessible if needed. We loved it so much, we’ve already booked our next trip and can see this being our home, when away from home.

We stayed with another couple and it was perfect for what we wanted. Sitting on the deck in the morning with our coffee watching the waves and wildlife - Amazing.

Cute, clean condo

  • 5 of 5

The unit is very nice, newly remodeled and was very clean inside. It was great being able to walk out to the balcony and watch the sunset above the ocean on the days we didn't feel like going down to the beach. It is in a quiet area but there is fairly quick access to everything. The building itself is a little dated (nothing the unit owner has control of) so you may be slightly concerned before you enter the unit but do not be fooled, the unit is very nice, clean and new with anything you might want for the beach inside. It has a very home like feel to it and they have more than enough kitchenware for anything you might want.

The property was very quiet until the last day or two where there was a family who came in that was a tad less quiet than everyone else, something that the HOA can easily be called for (the number is supplied by the owner at time of rental and also in the condo) but it wasn't horribly bothersome so we just ignored it.
