“The perfect beach house”
Reviewed 21 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013
person found this review helpful

I would stay here again without hesitation. We intended to stay 4 nights and ended up extending to 7 nights-- still wanting more. The owner/manager is kind and patient. We had some money transfer challenges since I was out of the U.S. during the time when payment was due. Because they do prefer noncredit payment, this added to the complexity of the negotiation. Everything worked out fine and our security deposit was returned promptly.

The location is wonderful, at the southwestern most edge of the U.S. The ocean is magnificent and the beach sparsely populated, especially if you walk south. About a mile to the south is where the Tijuana River empties into the ocean. It is a wild place with lots birds and tide pools. To the north is the Imperial Beach Pier. More than worth the stroll. Walk to the end and have lunch or breakfast at the Tin Fish. Or watch the surfers crashing about in the waves.

The rental is in a multi-unit building (4-5 total units, not sure how many) with extreme close-in beach front. There are two small and secure parking spaces underground. It is tight quarters so if you have a choice and all else is equal, rent a small car. The unit is narrow but very long so there is nice separation of space between the back bedroom/bath and the masterbdrm/bath. Four people are easily housed.

The building is not new so on outside you can see the effects of just a few years exposure to the sometimes harsh weather at the coast. Metal is especially vulnerable to the salt air. The unit’s interior is in excellent condition. The view is fab! Ah and the thought of sunset makes me tear up.

Renting this is more like staying in someone’s home rather than a unit that only sees renters. The furnishings are very nice and the kitchen is well outfitted. There are a few condiments left from previous users so check into the apt before going to the grocery store. The appliances are mostly new and very high quality. The full size washer and dryer are nice for an extended stay out of a carry-on suitcase. Wireless internet works great and there are several large screen TV's hooked to cable.

Out front are gently hidden stone steps down the boulders to the beach. We were there at a high-tide weather event and the surf lapped at the edges of the boulders. The unit is first floor, so the building access is perfect, walk out the deck, into the yard, to the boulders, down to beach and water.
