Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi and thank you for taking the time to look for guest comments. It shows you are a savy, careful shopper and I admire that! The Victorian Cottage is the newest addition n to our exciting group of Pacific Beach rentals. I don't have any comments for it yet buy you can read the comments for my 7 Riviera Villas vacation rental condos by going to the guestbook on my website at "nancysvacationrentals" or at VRBO/18977. You will be able to get an idea of what our guests think of the Sail Bay area and of me, the person to whom you will be trusting your hard-earned money and vacation time!

We had such a great experience! Everything was clean and orderly. The location was perfect, close to the bay and an easy walk to the beach. We have stayed at a few VRBO homes and this by far was the best! We look forward to returning in the future!

Quirky charm to match the Pacific Beach vibe

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at this little beach house. Was originally built as a single room, then a series of add-ons. Comfortable and clean, outstanding location and lots of fun.

Owner very helpful and responsive.

Woke up at home this morning, thought I was at the beach cottage, then was really disappointed

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this cozy, adorable cottage! My boyfriend and I stayed for an extended weekend and felt right at home. It is in a great location, and the bikes make for easy travel to many shops and restaurants. The upstairs bedroom was so sunny, I loved just opening the doors to the patio a and enjoying the fresh beach air. Just perfect!

Amazing cottage house

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this beautiful beach cottage was amazing. The location is so close to the beach and walkable to all the cool restaurants near by. There are plenty to do in the winter and summer. We took the kids to the Sea World and LEGO Land. The cottage worked out so well, the master bedroom downstairs for us and loft space upstairs was perfect for our 3 kids. Boys slept together on the bed and daughter slept on the comfy mattress set up on the floor. The cottage is set up with plenty of movies and games, so we were never bored. Kitchen has plenty of things to cook with and bathroom stocked with all the necessary things. Host was very accommodating, she let us come in sooner than check in time and was very helpful with all of our questions. We highly recommend this place and are planning on going back in the summer!!
