About this condo

Entertain a small group, sitting practically on the beach, view the sunset, the IB pier and the Marriott Resort, beyond Dunes Park. Lay out openly on this spacious patio or sit back, sheltered from wind, sun and public sight. Enjoy the same views from the kitchen, dining and living rooms, all brightly remodeled with (faux) driftwood floors and marble countertops. Fully stocked, you'll find comfortable beds, the best appliances, and even Boogie boards, games and sand toys for the kids.


The space

This large condo unit (1275 Sq feet) has ample space for lounging in the common areas as well as large bedrooms, each with flat screen TVs and internet. Pay-per-view orders are available at an additional charge. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. There is a brand new washer and dryer in the unit for your use. The master suite has a California King bed, walk-in closet, twin sinks, a large extra-deep bathtub with separate shower and toilet room. The 2nd bedroom has two twins and a pull out bed. There are air beds for extra guests to set up in the living room, where three or more adults can comfortably sleep, listening to the waves outside.

The large patio at ground level has a beautiful fire pit table to keep your group cozy in the evenings. Close enough that you could literally throw a stone to the sand on the beach. It's a great area for sunbathing, with full exposure. But many guests love the little nook, where an intimate party can gather around a bar-height table to dine outside, overlooking the full view while being virtually invisible to the public and protected from the wind and sun. Perfectly comfortable for your morning coffee, card parties or working on computer. And with the door open, you can even kick back and watch TV from the nook outside, while you smell the fresh ocean breezes.



Guest access

ALL of this entire 1275 sq foot unit is available to our guests (except for housekeeping closet). The public areas are also accessible with your keys to the pool, Jacuzzi, work-out/meeting rooms, the BBQ pits and poolside dining areas, and the lounge chairs surrounding the pool, heated outdoor showers and common area bathrooms.



This unit is strictly used year-round for vacationers who want a quiet warm sunny beach from which to enjoy Southern California. You'll find that the prices vary according to the same seasonal and holiday rates as the Marriott's South Pier Resort next door, slightly more expensive during holidays and the summertime.



But for the same price, you can sit on your own large patio, steps from the pool, with a full kitchen, water toys for adults and kids, two bedrooms, two baths (one with a deep soaking tub) and 1275 square feet instead of the 350 square feet that the hotel resort will offer. The only thing they have that we don't, is your massage and nail spa, and a fire-pit (too much liability). But then all you have to do is make a reservation or walk next door at order a drink at the restaurant when that suits your fancy.



There is beach access from the complex - just walk toward the back of the complex past the grills through the door straight onto the sand. Make sure you take a key with you to re-enter the property. You will find that Imperial Beach, especially in the quiet off-season, is one of the best kept secrets in San Diego County.



Other things to note

Since this unit is the closest to the front of the building, you will enjoy the fact that

you can walk practically straight from your front door to the pool and jacuzzi areas. You will also find a shower with warm water directly in front of the elevator. We ask that you please use it to shower off sand from feet, clothing and sand toys. Guests bringing a small dog have found that using this shower is a great way to be sure that your doggie's feet and hair are always clean and fresh. And there's now a park across the street, supplied with plastic bags to clean up any doggie mess, so DO NOT use the planters in the building. Please. Laminated rules and associated fines established by the HOA are strictly enforced.
Also, please note that San Diego County and the City of Imperial beach require an additional fee of 10% to cover taxes. This fee will be requested from you after your booking is confirmed and you will be notified through the resolution center.

    Amazing Getaway!

    This property was perfect for a relaxing getaway. Rochelle, the owner, met us at check-in to show us how to access the property and gave us a tour of the condo. The condo was in an older condo complex in Imperial Beach but this unit is definitely one of the nicest in the place. We ended up using the porch (with an amazing ocean and pier view) every morning, afternoon and evening. The fire pit was a nice bonus. While the weather wasn't the best during our stay (not very warm or sunny) it was still muggy, so it was nice to have A/C. The bed was probably one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in away from home. Other pros: 2 free parking spaces (in secure, underground garage), beach chairs, toys and towels provided, Netflix, great restaurants, shops and the pier within walking distance, and easy, private access to the beach. Cons: the outdoor jacuzzi/hot tub wasn't working while we were there, the pool area was pretty run down with only 2 lounge chairs available (but the weather wasn't nice enough for us to use it anyway), also the amenities listed a weight room but we couldn't find it anywhere in the complex. Overall, we had a great, comfortable stay and I'd recommend this condo to anyone looking to visit Imperial Beach, San Diego.

    Great condo steps from the beach

    This condo is as-advertised, a wonderful spot to enjoy a little old-school meets new-school San Diego beach scene. Walk to the beach in a few steps, walk to the pier only a hundred yards. The master suite is really nice, with a huge bed, nice shower, and dual sinks. The second bedroom has 2 beds, but they were a little small for my son (he's 6'3" though, so normal humans should be fine I suppose). Great parking that was easy to get in and out of. All around we were very happy we picked this place to stay.

    Beautiful Beach Stay

    My husband and our 18 year old son and I stayed here for a week in June. The condo is clean, and everything was in working order. The beds were comfortable to sleep on. There were room darkening window coverings for sleeping in. The view of the beach is incredible. The beach is right outside the complex. There were plenty of beach toys and towels available. The beach itself is clean and family friendly. We had plenty of space to ourselves here, but nearby lifeguards are reassuring. There were so many shops and restaurants within walking distance. There is even a grocery store within walking distance. There is also a beautiful nature preserve down Seacoast Drive. The town feels safe and friendly. We did not rent a car during our stay, just used Uber, which usually came within 10 minutes of our request. We did day trips to LaJolla, Coronado, Balboa Park, the zoo and a Padres game. The condo building is very secure with locked garage and access to the grounds only accessible by use of a key. We did not use the pool or hot tub while there. We spent a few evenings and mornings on the most amazing patio, which has both sunny and shady spots depending on what you prefer. This was an amazing family vacation spot.

    Beautiful home and beautiful view!

    We loved sitting on the patio people watching and the access was ideal for exploring IB on foot. The apartment is very spacious and had everything we needed. The kitchen is well-stocked compared to many VRBOs - there are a few spices and things to help you get by, lots of dishes and pans, and a couple of decent knives. Rochelle was very accommodating and made sure everything was the way we wanted. She checked with us once we got there to make sure there were no problems. The complex is very quiet and secure. We intend to return!

    Perfect location for kids!

    We just spent a week at this condo with our four kids and it's fantastic. The proximity to the beach and playground cannot be matched. It was immaculate upon arrival with most everything you could want for the beach. The commute to the local attractions is very reasonable, anywhere between 20 mins and 45 mins. The property manager was efficient and very responsive to any questions and requests. Would love to stay here again.
