ONLY USE THE COMBO LOCK WHEN LEAVING.
Never lock the throw bolts on front door + screen doors when you leave as you do not have the keys for these locks to get back in. Call Yolanda 619-634-3455 who has keys or Nancy 619-297-9911 who can give you secret key locations.
Lock only the combo door by turning the inside bolt on the combo lock and then pull the door shut. Test it to make sure it is locked – you will hear a click.
But it is OK to lock the 2 doors leading to the deck from the inside however for security.

It is a booming changing and fun place.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: 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..
Why the Owner Chose Imperial Beach, CA, USA:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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?
