Property description

The Penthouse at Palm Plaza includes 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, full kitchen, large wrap around ocean facing deck with BarBeQue, W&D, dish washer, 4 flat screen TVs and DVDs, F/P, original water color art of local attractions. Assigned carport under unit, .

Imperial Beach is a small, laid-back town of about 25,000 people and it's less busy than most beach areas in San Diego County. There are at least 8 restaurants within a 5-minute walk from the condo. There is a well-stocked 7-11 convenience store and a taco shop about 20 yards away, and two coffee houses within 200 yards. There are many fine restaurants including several at the Hotel Del Coronado, in the beautiful and very exclusive city of Coronado, located about 8 miles north of Imperial Beach along the 'Silver Strand' that separates the Pacific Ocean from San Diego Bay. The condo is located on Palm Avenue, which is a major street further to the east, but by the time it gets to the beach, it's a two-lane road. To get to the beach from the condo, it's a walk of about 200 yards crossing one street, Seacoast Drive, which is controlled by a four way stop sign.

Imperial Beach has wide sandy beaches, all of which are publicly accessible. The surf is excellent, the area just north of the Imperial Beach Pier and another area about 1 mile south are among the best surfing locations in Southern California. The City of Imperial Beach has been working to emphasize the surfing theme, and the plentiful public art reflects that. There are two beach-front public parks within walking distance of the condo, one at the foot of the Imperial Beach Pier. The pier is about 300 yards long and there's a restaurant at the end. Even at prime time on weekends. it's easy to find a place to set up at Imperial Beach. No alcohol is allowed at the beach or in the public parks and the public places are very family-friendly. Imperial Beach is not a 'party' area compared to other San Diego County beaches such as Mission Beach or Pacific Beach.

Easy walking distance to the beach, all shops, restaurants and historic pier. Enjoy small beach town unhurried atmosphere, estuary, ocean and bay. Also close to Coronado and San Diego for more shopping, restaurants and water activities. Close to Las Americas outlet mall and Baja Mexico. Bring your passport when you visit!

The Penthouse @ Palm Plaza is located less than 1 block from a sandy lifeguard patrolled beach. Views of dolphins, whales (in season), incredible sunsets, islands and city views as well. Just steps away from the Penthouse you'll find Mexican restaurants, 7/11, West Coast Coffee Shop, VFW, Ye Old Plank Inn for libations and billiards. Jump into the car and visit Coronado's Hotel Del Coronado, restaurants and shops. A little further and you explore San Diego's Gas Lamp District. the Zoo, Sea World, Balboa Park and much, much more.The Neighborhood: Imperial Beach is a small, laid-back town of about 28,000 people and it's less busy than most beach areas in San Diego County.

About: Born in Philadelphia and raised there. attended West Chester State University, and Bloomsburgh State University for graduate degree in Audiology.

I have been active with the Chamber of Commerce, the Boy's and Girl's Club and served on the board of a number of HOAs. One year I was voted Business Man of the Year in IB. I live both in IB and in Mexico and enjoy both for what they are and provide to me. I enjoy supporting the arts, family life and taking care of animals in need. My hobbies include sailing, the beach, friends, listening to music and it seems, repairing cars in inconvenient places.

Why Imperial Beach:
In the heart of the beach area, with restaurants, pubs and easy access in and out of town. One of the more unique properties in IB with an huge ocean facing deck. The views are incredible and wrap around the entire property, from mountain sun rises in the morning to ocean sunsets in the evening.
