About Nancy Chapman
Married 46 years, Built our home, and we raised our two children here, now both married with children of their own. Still local, we get to enjoy seeing our 4 grandchildren grow which is a true blessing to us. Our Casita was born in 2012 (having a builder for a husband is great) :-) thus fulfilling my dream to have a sweet little place for friends and family to enjoy; giving all who visit a place to rest, recharge and discover new and interesting places to see and experience.
Why Nancy Chapman chose Vista
We built on this property because of the central location to anything and everything you may ever need, but, far enough away to have peace and quiet. Having an ocean view and beautiful sunsets is a wonderful added bonus!
What makes this Bungalow unique
Our Casita is located 3 minutes from the 78 Hwy so getting around is incredibly easy. Once here you will be surrounded by our gardens with lovely mosaic tile work, that I have enjoyed creating through the years, and beautiful running fountain to add to the peacefulness and enjoyment of visiting birds, butterflies and dragonflies too.

Cute homie stay!!
We enjoyed our quick stay in this great casita. It was very close to freeway access and was very clean and homie. Nancy and Jim were great and you will get to enjoy the best banana bread when you arrive!! :)
Wonderful, positive and cozy
The hosts have thought of everything to welcome guests: positive vibe, cozy comforts, easy access, quiet back area, furnishings to comfort. Very accommodating hosts, they will check in with you and help out with any questions or needs. Have stayed here 4x and the level of charm and support have never wavered.
We love having you visit...and that you can come, feel at home, relax, take a much needed break and feel rested. Thank you for taking such nice care of the Casita and for your thoughtful words.
The best of the best!
This was the best decision I have ever made on a place to stay! We rate this place a 10+++. The owners do not intrude, are friendly and most accommodating, they did not leave out a thing to ensure our comfort. This rental is close to everything, but you won’t be inconvenienced by traffic.
We stayed here awaiting the arrival of our first grandchild. If you have ever waited on a child to be born, you know the stress of the wait. This place gave us a place to sit back, relax and to enjoy our time with our our son, daughter-in-law and Jaxon, our perfect grandson.
Should we return to CA some day, we will stay here. We have even thought about returning just to be able to come back to this place. If you stay here, and you should, it will only add to the quality of your vacation.
Such wonderful guests!! What a great time to visit.....time to welcome your first grandchild :-)
We are so happy you got some snuggle time with your beautiful grandson and your kids too! Very happy you enjoyed your stay and would love to see you again.
We booked last minute and Nancy was so helpful and accommodating! There was even hot cocoa mix and martinelli's in the fridge -- small touches, but made the place feel that much more like "home". 10/10 would recommend and 10/10 will stay again!!
Thank you so much!!
It was great hosting you and glad you were able to stay, even for such a short visit. I hope to see you again in the near future.
Best wishes always,
A pleasant experience
It was peaceful, serene, and enjoyable staying here.
It was very nice to have you visit and so glad you had a nice time.
I hope you can visit again.
Relaxing Casita in a Great Location
There is no better value in North San Diego County than this beautiful casita located in Vista. Even though it is built into a main house, it has dedicated parking and a private, gated entrance. If you are looking to relax, the casita has a well-appointed private back yard that includes a fountain and a fire pit. We were there in December and the entire place was lit up for the holidays.
The casita is intriguingly designed. It is a single room, but through the use of a divider and a screen, it feels more like a suite. In addition to the bed, there is a full-sized couch and a comfy chair. If you want to wake up and make a quick breakfast, the kitchen has everything you would need: a minifridge, toaster oven, and any other essential. Because the weather is so wonderful in Vista, you can have your breakfast on the tile deck. The decor is very warm and welcoming. Upon our arrival there was chocolate banana nut bread and some Merci chocolates waiting on a tray. The room is outfitted with books, DVDs, beach chairs and towels, anything you would need for a SoCal stay.
The hosts are friendly, welcoming, but never intrusive -- the perfect kind of VRBO hosts. If you need anything, though, they are ready to help.
The location of the casita is perfect for enjoying all of the opportunities North San Diego County has to offer. You are only about 15 minutes from the beaches of Carlsbad and Oceanside, close to two multiplex theaters, about the same distance to a host of restaurants ranging from inexpensive family eateries all the way to top end restaurants. There is even great live theater in Vista at the Moonlight Amphitheater. And if you want to zip down to San Diego, it's only about 40 miles away.
The casita is perfect for a couple's getaway. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here!
We loved having you stay at our Casita and feel very blessed you enjoyed your visit. Thank you for such a wonderful review and thank you also for being such great guests. The Casita was so well kept, clean and tidy, which is very much appreciated. We highly recommend you to any host in the future, as the perfect guests and hope that we will see you again when visiting this area.
