About the property

Enjoy the ocean view and breezes from this beautiful two bedroom , two bath condo. Full kitchen, washer, dryer, cable TV with DVD player. Wireless internet. Swimming pool, Jacuzzi, bar-b-que, underground parking included. The local area is quiet and uncrowded - perfect for walking around or relaxing at the beach.

Imperial Beach is quieter and more family friendly than San Diego's other, more crowded beaches. Yet most of San Diego's main attractions like the zoo, Coronado, and Sea World are within a 30 minute drive.

About Ed and Sandy Hornyak

Sandy and I moved back to the San Diego area in 1991 after I retired from 21 years in the navy. Sandy retired from registered nursing about five years ago, and I retired two years ago after teaching first grade for fifteen years. So we are really, really, retired now and enjoying every minute of it! We like to travel and try to get away several times a year. We developed the travel bug during my last years in the navy since we were stationed in Rota, Spain for four years and then in the U.S. Embassy in Lisbon, Portugal for almost five. But sometimes we just like to 'travel' to our beautiful condo by the ocean for a few days every once in awhile.

Ed and Sandy Hornyak purchased this condo in 1993

Why Ed and Sandy Hornyak chose San Diego County

We've always dreamed of owning property by the water so we jumped at the chance to buy this place. Imperial Beach is so much quieter than San Diego's other beaches and that's what we like most about it.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with the view of the beach and ocean from the living room area. Even though you are away from it all, everything in San Diego is within easy reach.

Amazing condo on beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! Thank you to Ed & Sandy for their hospitality and great communication. This condo has everything you need and overlooks the beach- we saw surfers, porpoises and even seals from the living room daily. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need. There is a washer & dryer in the unit, which is awesome. Everything you need for a relaxing stay is included from beach towels and toys to a boogie board. TV and DVD player with movies, board games & books included.

Imperial Beach is full of friendly people with lots of green space, great restaurants and stores all within a quick walking distance- don't miss IB Street Tacos, Filippi's pizza, the Wave Cafe for hearty breakfasts and The Coronado Brewing Company for good tacos and great craft beer selection. The Tin Fish at end of pier is also fun to visit!

San Diego is a quick 25 minute drive and Coronado even closer- it's an ideal location to feel out of the City but yet so close to take in the zoo, Midway Museum and other attractions!

We will miss the sunsets and ocean waves- thank you again for opening your great home to us.

Shanna, Chad, Emma & Nicholas Strowbridge

Owner's Response: Thanks for pointing out some of the local eateries. It seems like every year we add one or two great spots to the area. Imperial Beach just keeps getting better and better.

Better View Than Advertised

  • 5 of 5

Everything needed for a great stay is provided, including fully equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, above average jacuzzi, good complex security features, & that fantastic view. You can hear the waves in the living room & dining room with the windows shut. It's a cute little beach community with plenty of good food choices in walking distance. We had such good relaxing family time for the 4 day mini-vacation, that neither TV was ever turned on. The owners make sure everything is taken care of. Great value!

Would love to stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four, including two small children. It was the PERFECT location for everything we set out to do - pool, beach, great restaurants for relaxing... and within 30 minutes to San Diego/La Jolla. The condo was the perfect amount of space for us, it included beach toys, two strollers, booster seats and a high chair, plenty of towels and beach towels. We are on the top floor with an ocean view - there was a TV there, but who needs it when you have the ocean right there in view! And the beach access from the condo was so convenient, especially with kids in tow. We got to meet Ed, and he was super sweet and welcoming (thanks for the fruit basket!). Ed and Sandy helped make this family vacation our favorite one yet! We hope to book with them next time we come around!

Owner's Response: We're very happy that over the years we've accumulated a lot of "kid stuff" in the condo. A lot of our guests come with small children and it's nice to have these things available for their use so they don't have to bring so much stuff with them.

Clean, well-equipped condo in a great location

  • 4 of 5

This condo overlooks Imperial Beach and offers easy access to the beach itself. Parking is secured and in the basement of the building, each floor is accessible via elevator or stairs. There are multiple restaurants within a few blocks (we particularly liked the Coronado Brewing Company pub, the Thai food restaurant across the street is affordable and offers good food). The condo is well furnished, comfortable, and the owners do a great job of ensuring you are happy. We would certainly return!

Imperial Beach is a quieter and more family friendly alternative to San Diego's other, busier beaches but is only 20 minutes or so from all of San Diego's attractions such as the zoo, Balboa Park, etc.
