Overview

About the property

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.

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 Pacific Beach

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.

Great Location, Comfortable Beds

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a week and loved our stay. The location was steps away from the main street in Pacific Beach, close to tons of restaurants, and steps away from a supermarket. The apartment itself was clean, and the beds were very comfortable. They kitchen was also well equipped and came with basic spices. Being able to use the two bikes was also an awesome way to explore the city, and access to laundry was a great bonus.

Would definitely stay here again!

Wedding Week

  • 5 of 5

A group of us from all over the country came together for a friend's wedding in PB. We rented one of the units on Feldspar for the week. The rental was perfect for what we needed it for. We are all in our lower 30's and weren't planning on being at the rental much other than sleeping. The location was perfect. It was within blocks from a couple of grocery stores and some really good night life. Having the use of 4 beach cruisers was huge. The boardwalk was only 6 blocks away and we could cruise the bikes all the way to Mission Beach within 20 mins. Not having AC was a little concern, but there were plenty of fans. It was also nice that a really nice gas grill was available. We were able to eat a couple of family meals. Overall, we were really impressed with the rental and we will be back for our yearly trip to PB.

Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. My husband was concerned that there was not A/C but we opened up the windows when there and it was perfect. We loved that we could put the kids to bed and we could stay up watching TV or hanging outside. Its a great location walking distance to the beach, restaurants and grocery store. My kids had a great time and I loved that we were comfortable there. Would highly recommend this rental for people with young kids.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The owner had everything ready. The only thing that we had problems with was the TV remotes. The apartment is great. It was just right for my family of five that used this location for 3 nights. It is centrally located in Pacific Beach. There is a Sprout's grocery store nearby that has reasonable prices. It is just across the street. There are many restaurants near this location. It is about 8 blocks from the Pacific Beach. This stretch of beach is wonderful. The neighborhood is great.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! Most families also enjoy how close in proximity this apartment is to just about everything, so I'm glad you were able to take in all of what Pacific Beach has to offer. Thank you for letting us know about the issues you experienced in regards to the tv remote, we asked our maintenance supervisor to send someone by to take a look at it so it is now fully operational. When you plan your next vacation, please keep us in mind and remember to ask us about our return guest discount! Thank you for staying with us! Nancy's Vacation Rentals Staff
