This is a great property and our group really enjoyed our stay. It's really out of the city, and is very private. The outdoor space is truly lovely, and the kids loved the pond with all it's fish and turtles.
The home is very spacious, had a nice kitchen, and was in general very comfortable. In the back of the property it is very private, you won't see anyone else, which we loved so much.
As was mentioned in other reviews, and I will echo here, the road to this property is very rough. I would not recommend renting any luxury vehicles as they won't do well. Part of the road was pretty washed out while we were there as there had been rain, so there were really big potholes.
Another thing to note: the shower in the master was great, but on the main level the water came out either cold or very hot in both showers. It wouldn't stop us from staying again, but was a bit of an annoyance.
This is a wonderful home, big enough for a family. It has everything you'll need for a comfortable stay. We were lucky to find this home for an extended summer stay. The kids (and dog) loved the back and front yards. The furnishings and applicances are all modern, and there's a great barbecue out back. It's on a cul de sac, so it was safe for the kids to ride their bikes and scooters. It's only a mile or so off the freeway, with easy access to shopping, groceries, restaurants, and a great drive-thru coffee shop. We hope to be able to stay here again in the future!
Thanks for the great stay Laura. A comfortable and great place for a family to relax.
Thanks Laura for a great stay for our family, it is a comfortable place for our family. Tom
Wonderful apartment, wonderful sight to the ocean...
We had a great time in the apartment of Laura and Milt, everything was perfect organized and so lovely.
Thank you very much
Laura's and Milt's Lakeside home was a wonderful base during our 2 week stay in the area as we visited family.
The house was spacious and had everything we needed to feel at home and relaxed with our toddler in tow. The kitchen was well-equipped so we found ourselves making many meals at home rather than eating out.
Both Laura and Milt were wonderful hosts. Since they needed the house for a few days at the start of our stay, they very graciously offered one of their other nearby properties which was beautiful and a great experience for us to enjoy and even gifted us with Netflix while we were at their home. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything, more than was expected, and thus we highly recommend staying at any of their homes. Thank you Laura and Milt for opening up your home and sharing with us your homes!
The Place is just awsome. We couldn't believe that we where so lucky to find Nature Retreat. The 4 kids where everyday in the pool...
This where for sure the best 3 mounth in our familylife!
Milt and Laura are great people and we had many many great talks and nice barbeques. We used the also the Gym, sauna and the whirlpool. - everything is in perfect condition and a lot of fun to use. My wife went horseback riding 4 times at the close ranch. We where on the farms around and had an awsome time. It's realy the perfect mix to be on the country side and enjoying the city and the beaches...
We had an incredible time at the Imperial Beach Oceanfront Condo! It was like a real second honeymoon for us. It had everything we love and more. From the living room is a stunning view of the waves and pier. Access to the beach is really easy, there is a pool and jacuzzi, a gym should anyone care to work out, and it is walking distance to a variety of local food places. The balcony is fully stocked with a hammock, umbrella-ed picnic table, surf board storage and lounge chairs. We loved being able to relax in a home and be able to cook our own meals while still have the luxury to swimming/surfing as often as we like.
The neighborhood is quaint and quiet, with many friendly local faces. It doesn't feel over-crowded or congested. There was a street market near the pier and cute shops and ice cream parlors. We would have no reason to drive anywhere with everything we need within easy walking distance.
We felt safe in the condo. The complex was kept clean and quiet. It felt just like home, we could barely believe we had only been there a weekend.
What was so refreshing was how helpful and gracious the hosts are. They made it so simple for us to figure things out and feel comfortable staying in their home. It made our whole stay so much better knowing that we were staying in the home of friendly, warm people. The welcoming environment made all the difference!
We want to go back and recommend it to anyone who loves the beach and needs to relax!
Pictures and words do not do this magnificent place justice. This is a magical property and I am counting the days till I can next return.
Nous avons séjourné un dizaine de jours chez Milt et Laura.
L'appartement est idéal, un vaste séjour plein soleil donnant sur une vaste terrasse devant la plage, une chambre calme à l'arrière.
Milt et Laura sont des hôtes adorables, très disponibles et à l'écoute, nous avions besoin de 2 lits séparés, ils se sont arrangés pour nous les procurer.
Vivre avec eux est très cool, très simple, Milt qui est un excellent musicien nous a fait partager des soirées guitare et chansons, avec au loin le chant des vagues...
Nous souhaitons revenir chez Milt et Laura car nous avons vraiment apprécié leur hospitalité et l'appartement si agréable.
You will find Milt and Laura the quintessential hosts!! They have incredible attention to detail and offering their unique and fabulous homes up to you is a real opportunity. As fellow vacation home owners we also know what it means to be customer oriented and from all of our times together, we see that they do as well. You would not want to miss a chance to stay in one of their homes. We highly recommend them, and wish you all the best that a fantastic vacation has to offer.

I've been friends with Laura for many years and I know her to be an honest, sincere, and kind person. Her property is a very special place, as I've stayed there many times myself as a guest. It's quiet, peaceful, and the nature is very powerful and inspiring. I always leave there feeling refreshed and energized.
