We really enjoyed staying at Laura's house! It was a wonderful and relaxing atmosphere. Our commute to downtown San Diego was only about 25 minutes, which wasn't bad at all. The house was just what we were looking for! We would highly recommend it.
What a wonderful place. Everything was so nice. My family can't wait to visit again. Thank you so much Laura
My birthday was MAGICAL!! The energy on this property is unbelievable. I enjoyed the pool and the spa the most. What a great space to recharge. I hope to return. Thank you Laura & Milt!
From the beginning, Laura was willing to work with us and make sure we were taken care of. The retreat was beyond what my friends and I expected. Our favorite parts were the hammock, and a little hike down the side of the hill to a little rock bench/lookout. It's rough to get there, we made the boys go first to stomp out the plants, but it's worth it.
The drive was a little rough, so make sure you are prepared. But it is doable since we drove a stick shift Honda. I can't wait to return to this amazing, relaxing retreat.
Location, location, location! Overall we had a great trip and would recommend this condo to others. You are surrounded by cool coffee shops, bars and restaurants and the ocean is easily accessible. All of this without being too obtrusive.
The pictures are pretty accurate and the condo itself is in good shape. Close to the stairs/elevator from the garage and we loved the big hot tub. We didn't care for the memory foam mattresses but I know some people who love them so this is preference issue. Also, the cable system/internet/phone is not reliable at all. We had to have Laura come out and try and reboot the system and figure it all out. It worked for one day after her fix and then kept crashing throughout our stay. (Reported to rental agent) Bottom line is this, there are way too many components going on here. My advice would be to just get a simple system and leave it at that.
The neighborhood: Imperial Beach is an interesting and eclectic place. The condo is located in the best of the area. The tourist strip. The neighborhood surrounding the condo is not great though. We never felt unsafe but there is a heavy police presence there at all times. The beach is gorgeous and there is plenty of aircraft watching for you. There is a small military base close by so military helicopters are always buzzing by. We actually loved it as we are into that sort of thing but I could see where someone might not like it. We never heard anything from inside the condo though.
There were little issues that surfaced but the property manager was in constant contact with us and I appreciated her work ethic. If you have ever rented a condo/house, you know little things can come up. Nothing that would prevent me from renting there again.
Nice stay overall and I would recommend this area if you are trying to stay away from the touristy inner San Diego areas.
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
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.
