My wife and I spent a week at the condo with our 6 children. It was a great place to escape the Phoenix heat. The condo is very close to the beach. You can leave your car in the garage and walk half a block from the door to the ocean. From there, walk a block or so along the beach and there's a playground for the kids right next to the sand. About another block gets you to the pier with a little seafood restaurant on one end and an ice cream shop on the other. To us the atmosphere in Imperial Beach seemed very relaxed and family-friendly. How can you not enjoy life when you're next to the ocean with perfect weather?
The condo was very well stocked with everything we needed and more. The owner is very professional and hospitable. You can tell that he takes pride in making it an enjoyable experience for his guests. He met us at the condo when we arrived and stocked up the garage with some new sand toys and beach gear for the upcoming summer. There really is just about everything you could want for the beach - bikes, boogie boards, fishing poles, umbrellas, a shade tent, a cooler, and nice thick beach towels.
The rest of the condo is great too. It's nicely decorated. The towels and bedding are much higher quality than we expected at a rental place. It has a big TV and fast internet for when you want to just relax with the windows open and the ocean breeze blowing through. When you do go out, it's just a couple of miles to the I-5 and you're a few minutes away from everything there is to do in San Diego.
We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone.
