About Carol Gavan

My husband and I brought 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 alway been the center of our life.

Carol Gavan purchased this condo in 1992

Why Carol Gavan chose San Diego County

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.

Exceeded our expectations, amazing beach rental. Breathtaking ocean view.

  • 5 of 5

We are SO glad that we chose this rental! The view is better than we could have ever imagined, literally feet from the ocean. We could not have asked for a better person to work with, Carol was so helpful with everything, she is wonderful. This was our first family vacation and it was just perfect here! The rental is beautiful, has everything you could possibly need for the beach including chairs, towels, boogie boards, and beach toys. The unit is wonderful, beds are super comfortable, really nice kitchen with everything you could need, and the view is spectacular! Lots of really great places to eat within walking distance. No need to do anything else but enjoy the beach and the view. Thank you Carol for everything, we are already planning our next trip! Loved it there!!

Beautiful location, lovely condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Carol's condo for one week. It was exactly what we were looking for. The condo is in great condition, the kitchen is well equipped, and there are a lot of beach toys for you to use.

It is in Imperial Beach which is a much quieter location away from the hustle and bustle of San Diego. I loved waking up to the roar of the ocean and enjoying the ocean sunsets every night.

We hope to return in the future.

Awesome oceanfront condo

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several different condos in the Imperial Beach Club complex, and this one is one of the very best. Oceanfront deck, beautifully decorated, very clean, and extremely well stocked unit! Carol was wonderful to work with- between having to change our dates and even compensating us for the unplanned pool/hot tub closure, she was very accommodating and fair. We look forward to our next stay!!!!!

Excellent Stay, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This is a great and well kept unit and complex. It sits above the beach with great views of downtown SD and Coronado. Good restaurants nearby. Underground parking. Carol runs a tight ship and keeps a very clean property. All owners should be like her!

Happy to be back!

This was our second visit to Carol's lovely condo, and again it was perfect. Carol was lovely to deal with. Unfortunately, we had a medical emergency AND car trouble on our drive to California, and when I called to let Carol know that we wouldn't be checking in on the day we planned, she seemed truly concerned. When we did finally arrive safely (and with everyone healthy again), she seemed as relieved as we felt! It was so rejuvenating to be able to relax on the balcony and watch the waves, the surfers, the dolphins, and the sunsets. The condo is very well equipped. Our kids loved playing on the beach, splashing in the waves and boogie boarding, as well as playing on the playground next door. It was a wonderful vacation for us all. The kids constantly ask when we get to back to 'our condo'. :) Also, we can't recommend Sea 180, the restaurant at the Marriott just down the way, highly enough. The food is incredible, they have a wonderful happy hour, the sangria is to die for, and the views are spectacular. We can't wait to visit this perfect vacation spot again soon!
