I was born in Detroit and after graduating from University of Michigan, taught 3rd grade, then moved to San Diego with my family. I was a single mom with 3 children (now grown) for 25 years and worked in real estate. Now I am married to a Navy man also from Michigan. This property is my pride and joy. It was decorated and reconstructed for two years to make it perfect. I am happy to share this gem with beach travelers to love as much as I do. Besides taking care of Elkwood, I spend my time being a grandmother of three little people ages 4, 6 and 8..
Nancy Croisant purchased this cottage in 2012
I love Imperial Beach and became only the third owner of this property two years ago. It was old and abused when I bought it and I have spent the past two years throwing money at it hoping I could save it and make it smile. Some say it looks like guacamole but I think it has a old world charm that I have tried to keep in spite of itself.
Imperial Beach has the most unusual but lovely peaceful feeling surrounded by a crazy world. I hope you can enjoy living there and feeling the home's special aura.
I'm not sure what to say.....is it that old wooden gate and winding cement work with the stones? It is how it is so oddly attached together? It is the strange but comfortable floorplan? I don't know. Tell me what you think?
The amenities of this house catered to our every need with a fully stocked kitchen and laundry in addition to two comfortable bathrooms and relaxing living area. The location was fabulous and just a brief walk to the beach. Like one minute! The parking stall was a bit cozy, as we drove a truck but would be just fine for a sedan. Loved our stay and definitely will return!
Our family of four enjoyed the flexibility the property offered to us vs staying in a hotel. The kitchen had everything a cook could need on vacation. And the beach chairs, boogie boards and umbrella came in handy. The property was well maintained and very clean. Everyone we connected with was kind and timely. If the showers were bigger for my husband it would have been a perfect week.
I came here for a girl's trip with three friends, and this was the cutest, most charming little cottage. Need was comfortable, plenty of storage for all of our stuff, 90 second walk to the beach. It's easy to get to Coronado, downtown San Diego, and Old Town San Diego. Silver Stand Beach is a short drive, and that beach is just as beautiful.
This home was a perfect location for a beach get-away, and also a very easy drive to the city. Very well designed and decorated, and lots of room for guests. Because of the loft design for the upstairs bedroom, sound travels very easily ... only downside is that if others are trying to sleep, you might want to whisper or go outside if the others are night owls. Imperial Beach is a small, unassuming beach town and is not over built and over-touristed like so many other beach areas. Good local restaurants and great walking areas, plus a sandy beach.
Overall, this is a great home with lots of character and a warm, inviting place to stay.
Perfect place for a beach weekend, surrounded by restaurants, bars, coffee shops and parks. Our family had a really nice stay. Thank you Joli and Nancy for being so sweet.
Imperial Beach is a small casual beach community with parks, playgrounds.and a giant sandy beach and pier. There is a new luxury hotel with a spa and restaurant a few blocks away. Also many great restaurants and bars. On Friday, there is a Farmer's Market at the pier. There are many festivals and events during the weekends. There is a famous sand castle event also. It is a booming changing and fun place.
