About Carol Gavan

My husband and I bought 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 always 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.

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo at the end of April for eight days. It was amazing!! It had everything that we needed and then some... it was well stocked with dishes, towels, etc. What we loved the most were all of the beach toys that were available for our son to build sand castles on the beach and play in the ocean. This is the perfect condo for a family.

The ocean view is breathtaking. You have a 180 degree view of the ocean with zero obstructions. The beach was really quiet while we were there, so we could go down and get any spot we wanted. The condo is right on the beach, so you can sit on the patio and listen to the waves. The location of the condo was the highlight of my vacation.

The condo grounds are very well maintained. There are bbqs located in the courtyard, so you can take your food down and enjoy some bbq.

The pool and hot tub were a hit with our son. We made many trips to the pool and it was never crowded; we were the only people there most times.

Imperial beach is a really cool area. It has absolutely everything you need without going to far. Along Palm avenue, there are grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, pharmacies, etc. We loved that we could go and buy and cook our own food for the week. It saved us a ton of money on eating out. There is a really cool candy and ice cream shop about a 1/2 block from the condo. It is a must visit... 😊

We always felt safe in this area. We walked the beach and pier almost every night. We found people were really friendly and helpful. We did some fishing off the pier and caught around 10 fish. There was a pod of dolphins swimming by the pier while we were fishing. It was really amazing to watch them.

I would highly recommend renting this condo. Carol was amazing to deal with and is a wonderful person. She made us feel very welcome in her condo.

We are already starting to plan our 2019 vacation. We can hardly wait to return to San Diego and this condo.

Beautiful condo and location right on the beach with a great view from the 3rd floor balcony!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one week in March. It is such a beautiful condo with an awesome view of Imperial Beach, the Pier, and the sunset! The entire condo (bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, living room, and balcony) are greatly updated and cozy. This is a great location, within waking distance to many places! We saw some dolphins a few mornings. The pool and hot tub in the inside courtyard area was very nice also. We rented bodysuits and surfboards from the surf shop downstairs & went body boarding and surfing-the waves are pretty good size! This is the condo to get for sure!! Overall, we had a great time & cant wait to be back!

We enjoyed our stay at this condo. Loved hanging out on the deck looking and listen to the waves on the ocean. Location was great with good restaurants. Definitely would stay at this condo again. Owners were great.
