Enjoy a stay in the laid back beach town of Imperial Beach without the crowded streets and crazy beaches of other San Diego locations. This beach condo is returning as a vacation rental after a previous vacationer decided to turn her trip into a four year stay!
The property is located on the estuary side of Seacoast Drive, a quintessential beach street, offering restaurants such as Sea 180 and Coronado Brewing Co., souvenir shops, ice cream parlors and the D’ames Spa located in Marriott’s Pier South Hotel (all walking distance from the condo). Although not right on the ocean, the sandy beach is about 150 steps from your door where swimming, surfing, shell hunting, sand castle making, book reading, and sunset walks can all take place. When not enjoying your time on the beach, simply walk to your back porch and enjoy the serene views of the Tijuana River’s National Estuary Reserve. At the nearby visitors center you can learn about the estuary’s plants and animals, take a hike and do some bird watching.
Think of the condo as a hotel suite with a living/dining/kitchen area. Home cooked meals while on vacation are always a plus and the fully stocked kitchen will make that possible. The first bedroom has a Queen bed. The second bedroom has a Full over Full bunk bed. Due to the unit size and sleeping arrangements, it can sleep up to six, BUT IS LIMITED TO FOUR ADULTS. It is a bottom floor unit with easy access from street parking to the front door. The laundry facilities are conveniently located steps from the unit. There is a designated parking space for use, but closer curbside parking is usually available. The unit is equipped with internet and a smart TV with access to netflix. Linens, bedding, beach towels and (2) beach chairs are provided.
The town of Imperial Beach has gone through much growth in the past four years. New shops and eateries pop up each time we visit. There is always something going on near the beach, be it a triathlon, a run, a car show, or Santa coming to town. It’s slow pace and laid back atmosphere makes it a relaxing retreat. It is a 10 mile drive away from Coronado and near all San Diego’s attractions such as the Zoo, Seaworld and downtown San Diego. We have grown fond of the local shops such as Oasis Ice Cream on the way into town and El Tapatio Mexican shop that has come a long way from its drive though days. We love to share our little condo and its undiscovered gem of a beach town.
