San Diego Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom sleeps up to 6 with queen sofabed

Take a family vacation in the Pacific Beach/Mission Beach and Bay area without paying a fortune! This fully-furnished vacation rental does not have the view of a place right on the water but it doesn't have the price tag either and the beach is only 4 blocks away!

Centrally located near Sea World, enjoy all San Diego has to offer while staying in this clean and comfortable, roomy family-oriented 2 bdrm apartment with oak hardwood floors and all the amenities you need to enjoy your stay including 8 beach cruiser bicycles, beach towels, backpack style beach chairs, boogie boards, beach umbrella, private garage with automatic opener and laundry room. Cable TV with DVR and premium channels, wireless internet (Turbo-speed), and unlimited phone usage.

You do not need a car at this rental. Grocery stores one block ,tons of restaurants and shops within 4 blocks.

Please visit our website for up to date calendar - we have 3 of these 2 bedroom apartments available on our website!

We go the extra mile for your enjoyment: * The ocean and bay boardwalks are wonderful for bike riding so we provide beach cruiser bicycles for you... just like the ones you rode as a kid. No fancy gears, just a plain bike with a wide comfortable seat, high handlebars, kickstands, and back-peddle brakes.

* Relax at the tables and chairs in the grassy courtyard and enjoy a cold beverage after a day of sightseeing. You will find everything you'd expect to have in a home away from home. If we don't have it, let us know and we'll get it!

* Henry's Organic Market and Trader Joe's are less than a block away. Restaurants, bars, clubs and shops are plentiful in PB which gives you plenty of activities if you don't want to sit around. Everything you could need for your stay is within a 5 block radius... just park your car and enjoy the best of what San Diego has to offer. The ocean is 5 blocks to the west, with lifeguards, showers & toilets. You can also rent children's bikes with helmets (a California law) just down the street.

Peace of Mind while you travel: * Why tie up a credit card with a security deposit when you could be using that money for your well deserved vacation? We offer optional Accidental Damage Insurance, in-lieu of a Security Deposit. When you include this insurance with your reservation, the cost & repair of covered accidental damage will be handled by us! Coverage: intentional damage to the vacation rental during your stay, up to $1,500, including things like carpet spills, furniture tears, broken lamps, & even pet damage in pet-friendly homes!

* Travel Insurance Available: Protect your vacation investment from unexpected events. Did you know that vacation insurance could cover you if: You or a loved one gets sick (even if they aren't traveling with you)? You need medical treatment while traveling? A blizzard or hurricane prevents you from starting your vacation or forces you to leave early? And much more. * Call us today at 1 (619) 940-4687 for more details or visit our website 'NancysVacationRentals' for more info.

Noise in the Area versus Savings: *Located in the heart of Pacific Beach this apartment is in an area popular with young professionals & college crowds. It is not a quiet area in the summer or on school holiday weekends, but depending on what you are looking for, it could be just right. Live bands occasionally fill the evening air & nightclubs are plentiful along Garnet Ave. For most of the time, however, the neighborhood is pretty quiet. White noise machines are provided in each bedroom for light sleepers, as well as double pane windows throughout the property. *Prices are kept low because of the occasional noise & the proximity to the beach. If you read our guestbooks, you'll notice that the neighborhood noise doesn't bother most of our guests. Many feel that the savings more than makes up for a little noise & appreciate the fact that they can save money on lodging so it can be spent at places like Sea World & the Zoo.

*We have other properties located in quiet, upscale neighborhoods if you prefer a quieter area.

ASK us if this unit has AC!

About Nancy's Vacation Rentals

My husband and I live in the mountains NE of San Diego. We like to Scuba dive, ride bikes and hike in the mountains near our home and also walk and ride bikes down by the bay and ocean. Brian takes care of our rentals and I take care of our guests.

Nancy's Vacation Rentals purchased this apartment in 1993

Why Nancy's Vacation Rentals chose San Diego

My 4-plex was a yearly-leased rental and I converted it to vacation rentals because people kept asking me if I had anything less expensive than the rentals right on the ocean or bay. I kept seeing people parking in front of my building, getting their beach equipment out of the car and walking to the beach. Obviously it is not too far from the beach (4 blocks) for a vacation rental and offers a lower cost alternative for young families and anyone vacationing on a budget.

What makes this apartment unique

Riding bikes on the boardwalk. Walking with my toes in the wet sand and watching the sunset on the ocean horizon and perhaps catching a glimpse of the green flash on cloudless nights.

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Jason's during our conference visit early in Nov 2007. It was bright and tidy, safe and spacious, quiet at night. A guest book showed us the nearest shops and restaurants. What also great was that we could make our own sandwiches and didn't have to queue in the convention centre.

We have enjoyed our beach ride at dawn, jog at dusk as our holiday part. More importantly, we worked more productively than ever.

It is not only great for vocation but for business travellers as well.

Thank you.

Férias excelentes

  • 4 of 5

Eu e minha familia adoramos ficar nessa casa. Ela é bem aconchegante e tem os equipamentos necessários para uma boa estada. Fui atendido no que precisei, tanto por telefone quanto por email. Algo a melhorar poderia ser a velocidade da internet. De resto ficamos com saudade dessas férias. Recomendo o imóvel a quem desejar alugá-lo.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

I recently stayed at this apartment with my husband and two small kids, age 2 and 10 months. We really loved the location. Its within walking distance to the beach, which was something the kids loved so we got to walk there every afternoon. Only takes about 10-15 minutes. There is a Trader Joes and Sprouts Farmers Market right around the corner which was very convenient since we made all our meals at the house. It was easy to get to other attractions such as the zoo and USS Midway. Overall, we really enjoyed this place and would stay again. However, there were a few things that we think could be improved:

1. The pots and pans that were there to use were all non stick, but the coating was coming off of them and getting into our food. Definitely in need of new ones.

2. The wi-fi was painfully slow, pretty much could only use the internet to look up directions to things. Wouldn't work for Netflix or even most webpages.

3. There were boardgames there to play, but all of them were missing pieces, so not really playable.

4. The headboard on the king sized bed was suer loose and would bang against the wall at the slightest movement. Not very nice when you have a sleeping baby in the bed that would wake up everytime.

5. One of the barstools was completely broken. Luckily we never tried to sit on it before we noticed as we probably would have ended up on the floor.

Overall, the place was great. Definitely recommend this place!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. We work hard to provide a relaxing experience for each of our guests and will continue to focus on improving the comfort of each of our units. We are paying for Turbo speed internet for this unit, so it is disheartening to hear of the slow internet speed. We will work with our provider to improve this situation. Thank you very much for letting us know about the other challenges and we will address the items you mentioned as soon as possible. We're happy to hear that, overall, you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you as guests on future trips to San Diego! Best, The NVR Team

A tad loud

  • 3 of 5

The next door neighbors tended to party until the wee hours of the morning which made for some short nights. Overall, however, we enjoyed the facility and particularly its location. We used the place as little more than a place to lay our heads and a headquarters for getting out and doing things during the day. In this regard it fit our needs rather nicely. ps. Wifi almost unimaginably slow, nearly worthless. I would recommend this location but with the caveat that the renter is not looking to spend all his/her time relaxing here but rather getting out and enjoying the sights.

Owner's Response: Thank you for providing that information and helpful feedback. The comfort and quality of our rental properties is important to us so we be sure to follow up on the internet issues you mentioned to improve the unit for the next guests. We are sorry to hear about the noisy neighbors but we're happy to hear that, overall, you enjoyed your stay. We do manage over 55 locations in the Pacific Beach/Mission Beach area and can certainly recommend some quieter locations for future trips to San Diego! Best, The NVR Team

Great family friendly rental close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fantastic time staying at this vacation rental in Pacific Beach! We had a party of 3 adults and 2 small children ages 3 & 4. The unit was clean, well-located (you can't beat the proximity to Trader Joe's and shops and restaurants!), and extremely well-equipped with everything you might need on your stay.

We've stayed in vacation rentals many times before but this unit is hands down the best so far. The kitchen has every appliance and utensil that we needed (and were actually functional, not broken), the bathroom came stocked with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, soap, and plenty of towels, there was extra bedding, sleeping cots, a pack and play, and tons of fans in the bedroom closets, and the garage full of beach toys, bikes, and other goodies was such a great bonus! The kids absolutely LOVED the bunk beds and everyone in our party slept great in the beds.

It's about a ten minute walk to the beach and only a few minutes by bike, once you reach the boardwalk you can walk or ride in either directions for a few miles without car traffic and enjoy the beautiful view and beach!

We were so pleased with our stay and would love to return! I would highly recommend this rental for anyone looking for a great price and quality stay.
