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 Imperial Beach

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.

Awesome condo for a great beach vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an awesome vacation staying at this condo. The unit is very clean, wonderfully equipped in the kitchen and bathrooms. For entertainment there’s a big screen living room TV and a TV in each bedroom. Additionally there are boogie boards, beach chairs, frisbee, volley ball, toys — fun for all. The pool and jacuzzi are large and clean. This is a 3rd floor unit with nonone above you—very quite. Several nice chairs on the balcony. The beach view is the best in our opinion. You get to see all of the stars at night. You can see to the right all the way to San Diego (beautiful night lights) and to the left México and Imperial Beach pier (beautiful night lights) . Out front is the beautiful beach/sunset views we all seek. Imperial Beach only gets better as we visit more. Not far are outlet malls on the border where we enjoyed shopping and eating. Coronado Island is 5-10 mins, San Diego downtown is 20 mins and outlet mall 15 mins away. This condo is our favorite place to stay in CA. Carol the property owner is great to work with. Thank you for providing a clean and updated condo for our family’s enjoyment.

Awesome views and easy access to beach

  • 5 of 5

The best things about this condo are the terrific views from the balcony and the easy access to the beach. My husband and I stayed at the condo with our daughter, son-in-law and 2 year old twin grandsons. The boys loved playing on the beach! The condo is convenient to many restaurants within walking distance and is not far from the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, and the USS Midway - all places we visited. The condo was also equipped with just about everything we needed to enjoy our vacation - from sand toys & beach umbrella - to futons for the boys to sleep on. As an added bonus - we even saw dolphins swimming in front of the condo on a few occasions!

Can't beat this view of the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this condo multiple times and keep coming back. You just can't get a better view of the ocean in San Diego. Carol is always a pleasure to deal with, she is so pleasant. The Samsung TV with sound bar in the living room is a nice recent upgrade. Not that you would care to watch TV when you can be watching that view of the ocean. But it was nice for after dark. The condo is well equipped for time in the unit and also has beach items such as beach chairs, an umbrella and beach toys. Garage parking included is a nice feature.
