Our group spent 5 nights in condo #103 during the middle of July 2010 and had a wonderful time. We booked through Jeanne - http://www.jeannes-beach-villas.com/ibc.htm after finding her ad online. My wife and I traveled with her parents and our 2 year old son, and selected this property for its proximity to the ocean. Imperial Beach, which we had never visited before, turned out to be pretty gritty and pretty great. It has a long pier with many fisherman and many seal and dolphin sightings. It's about 300 ft from the condo. About 30 surfers are in the water day and night.
(Take a look at my pictures!) Directly across from the patio is a playground and picnic tables. This small park is packed with people during the weekend, with many families setting up tents and spending the whole day there. The beach area right by the condo is very popular during the day, but in the mornings and evenings it is nice and quiet. This particular room has one of the largest patios in the building, and is one of the few located on the beach. However, you cannot access the beach without going through and around the building, unless you are willing to jump the railing into the sand.
The rooms were not updated, but still fine for us. One only had 2 twin beds, which was not a perfect match for the couple staying in it. The other room was a nice master suite. The pool and jacuzzi were right outside the door, which was very convenient. The underground parking garage with 2 spots made things easy. There is wireless internet. The Beach Club Grill is downstairs, we had an ok lunch there. San Diego was 25 minutes away, but since we were paying for this beach location, we spent the majority of our time right at the condo, enjoying the patio and the beautiful ocean. This seemed to us to be one of the best rooms in this large building, and for just picking it online it was a really great find.
