Why Todd chose Imperial Beach

We chose this condo because it was practically on the beach, there was a great beach bar around the corner, and it's the most southwest part of the U.S.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is so close to everything. It seems you can get anywhere in San Diego within 20 minutes. Imperial Beach is a quiet community, which is great for kids and couples. Coronado is nice and close for great restaurants and shopping. There's a lot of attractions nearby too: San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Tijauna, Golfing, Surfing, Swimming.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The place was perfect. Since this was more of a family thing, we didn't get to enjoy the beach as much as we wanted. We did walk every morning and evening. Location was GREAT. I think the 500 yards from beach was wrong. More like 100yards!! I have a friend already interested. Close to good food, drink etc. Had to tell my wife to quit cleaning up everything. She wanted to pull the sheets and clean the place up like home.!! Bed was comfortable. Kitchen was great. Took a little while for hot water which didn't bother us, but might affect your water bill. Pam at realty office was very nice.

I give it a A rating and would be glad to write a review on website if you'd like. We would be interested to rent again.

This place was perfect. I felt safe. It was conveniently located to everything. It had everything.

  • 5 of 5

I would rent this place again! Even though I used it to attend a month long job related event , i didn't have an opportunity to utilize the boogie board which the condo had. It was well supplied for a vacation. Thank you Todd. I hope to rent again in the future.

Comfy place to stay. Had everything we needed for our visit to Imperial Beach. Sat in the chairs provided almost every evening to watch the spectacular sunsets!

Great Location

We always enjoy our stay in Todd's condo on Imperial Beach. If you need auto care go to "Woody's" on Palm Ave.

Great Southern California Beach Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Spent an enjoyable month in Todd's condo. Description and photos are accurate. This is a very small condo, but adequate for our stay as we enjoyed the price and location. Very close walking distance to several good bars and restaurants. We enjoyed happy hour at Coronado Brewing Company, SEA 180 Coastal Tavern, Barrels, and Margarita Monday's at Ye Olde Plank. Can't beat Imperial Beach for small town beach atmosphere. Great morning walks on the beach to watch surfers and killer sunsets over the pier. IB is very clean, uncrowded and plenty of parking...something that is hard to find in S. California.

Love the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

July is my favorite month because I spend it in this delightful condo just steps from the beach. Step out of the back gate and cross the narrow street and I'm on the sand. We love to walk to one of the local restaurants for breakfast and dinner. Sunsets on the beach were fabulous this month. The sun was out by 9am every morning and there was a nice breeze off of the ocean. There are plenty of storage spaces in the condo for all of our items. Todd has made numerous upgrades since last year and we were very comfortable. IB has a variety of events throughout the summer but the condo is in a relatively quiet area of town. Our pups enjoy running in the surf and watching the sunsets with us. The only day the beach is crowded is July 4...otherwise, it's very open. A plus is the parking spot directly beside the building. I love coming to the beach and I enjoy working with Todd and Karol at Spirit Realty.

Right out back, across the lane!
Car: not necessary

Our condo has the best of both worlds: it's close enough to walk to the beach in 2 minutes, but because it's not right on the beach, you save a lot of money!
