We are always apprehensive when booking a vacation rental online from photos however kayli’s Beach Front Condo was everything we could have asked for.
This unit was immaculate. I must say I am a cootie freak and I was perfectly at ease and comfortable in this condo. The beds and linens were super comfortable..the kitchen and baths well equipped. We were even able to have the ambience of the fireplace we had going every day.
What is really amazing however is the location. Walk right out the patio and the beach is right there, Extremely private since it’s a small complex and we love having the bottom corner unit with easy access,since were always coming and going not to mention the parking spot was right next to the unit..delightfull..!!
The views out every window and the sound of the waves were mesmerizing. To be able to step out your door and take a stroll on the beach is well worth the rental cost.
Obviously we can’t say enough about what kayli has preserved and we felt privileged to be allowed to share it even for a few days.
We will definitely be returning as soon as we can!
My wife and I were looking for a somewhat secluded, quiet place on the beach where we could hear the ocean at night, enjoy the sea breeze, walk the beach, and relax in a comfortable setting. This unit certainly fit all those requirements! The facilities were clean and the furnishings comfortable. Some elements need to be updated, but nothing in the unit itself was unpleasant. The kitchen was adequately furnished with everything we needed; the living room area was spacious with plenty of seating for many more than the two of us!
Our only criticism is that the patio sliding doors (off of both the living room and bedroom) have no screen doors, which limited the amount of time we could leave the doors open & enjoy the sounds of the beach. The patio furniture, too, needs to be updated or refinished and the chair pads replaced. In the end, though, these couple of things really didn't take away from our very enjoyable stay.
Stayed at this lovey condo with our family of 6 and our well behaved mixed breed Zeus, the views from every room are breath taking! You are literally steps to the beach, and it's very private, like your own beach! Every thing you need was right there, the accommodations were awesome , we had great meals on the beach front patio, overlooking the surfers and dolphins , cooked in the kitchen every morning, and enjoyed the fabulous restaurant down th streets..every place was so close and convenient!!!! This place is the best kept secret! We are coming back for Sand Castle Day’s and can’t wait to enjoy another week of Beach Lovers Paradise..!!We had three rainbows in one day and the last one was a double!!!! Don't miss this little piece of Heaven. Kayli was so accommodating and is a pleasure to work with< Love her so much!!
Very well designed and equipped unit, what an incredible location with amazing views, it’s like you're in Hawaii! and the surfers are awesome to watch and funny! The owner Kayli is superbly attentive and accommodating regarding any needs you might have. Doesn't get any better!
The beach walk is over 10 miles to coronado, didn't walk all of it but a great way to see the ocean, surfers and kite surfers, I’m even tempted to try!
The highlight, still, was this lovely condo! We loved being on the patio and in the living room or kitchen, seeing the view and hearing the wave and having breakfast and dining at night on the patio under the stars and full moon.. it was a memory we will cherish.
My expectations were high based upon the photos and reviews, but I must say that said expectations were not only met, but exceeded. The unit was absolutely perfect. We did not find one single hair or any stray sand (how is that possible at a beach house?). Amenities-wise, we had everything that we could possibly need..not be a stretch to say that it was better-equipped than our own kitchen at home.
Seriously I could go on and on. Decor, floor-plan layout, patio view, location, all pretty much perfect. As the reviews states, the photos do not give this place justice.
It has a great indoor outdoor feel, a wonderful patio and lounge chairs for viewing the ocean, with great ocean breezes inside. The access to the beach is excellent, in a minute walk and down the little path, We wanted to stay forever and never leave!
Owner was very unorganized and very unconcerned with customers experience. As we were traveling from LA to the condo we still had not received the code to get in, werent sure we could get in when we arrived at 8 PM. Also once your stay over you will never hear from her again in regards to your deposit. The experience was so bad that both my daughters and my wife were in tears the first night.
Ahhhh! What a lovely vacation home. If you want to be off the beaten path, this location is perfect. Unlike the busy lifestyle of Mission Beach, this spacious condo on Imperial Beach is peaceful. The photos accurately depict this ground floor property - and oceanfront location. This comfortable condo rests right at the beach's edge, with a low rock border (to shield the property from waves at high tide) so you get a nearly unobstructed view of the ocean. 2 small patios off the living room and master bedroom are perfect for a morning cup of coffee, and an evening glass of wine while enjoying the sunset. Take in the sounds of the ocean when you open the sliding glass doors! Sleep to the sound of the ocean from the master bedroom or living room sleeper sofa. (If you prefer quiet, there is a bedroom on the opposite side of the condo - away from the ocean.) Bring a blanket and relax on the beach - just steps from the patio, and enjoy the view of few surfers, pelicans, and dolphins! We saw several dolphins on the horizon during our stay. Stroll up the beach - to the Imperial Beach Pier for fishing, and restaurants. Driving up this coastline will lead you to Coronado Island. We chose this home for solitude and privacy and it did not disappoint. The only concern one might have, is if you plan on swimming, be aware of Imperial Beach's ocean-cleanliness signs. We are shore dwellers - strolling along the ocean's edge and knee-deep for shell hunting, so we were not concerned at all! And, it seems that the local surfers were not concerned, either. The wave breaks here are phenomenal! Inside the home, you'll find everything you need: more than enough towels and linens, and a washer and dryer with supplies. The full-size kitchen is equipped with utensils, table settings, pots and pans. The living room is open and comfy with 3 couches - and sofa-sleeper! The TV has premium channels and the electric fireplace provides a comfortable ambiance, with the option of turning on heat. 2 full bathrooms made sharing easy, and the bedrooms are comfy with queen beds. There's plenty of closet space to tuck away your luggage. Parking is convenient with 1 space right next to the unit, and plenty of parking on the street which faces the estuary. Bring your binoculars if you want to see the wildlife in the estuary! You can view it from street-side of the condo! If you bring your dog, leash-walking is welcomed on this beach, and there is a grassy common ground just off the front sidewalk. A night stroll along the sidewalk with your canine companion is safe and quiet. The host is very accommodating, communicative, accessible...and very friendly. We will return!
After several months, multiple requests, and a promise to "look into it", my $515 security deposit has still not been returned. My 70 year old parents and I made sure that the unit was left in excellent condition, cleaned and straightened, with TV's left on, as requested. I would not recommend renting this unit.
