Guestbook comments from the manager

My 83 year old father was lucky enough to stay in your unit at 1211 Felspar in Pacific Beach. The only thing that would have made him happier was if he could have stayed longer. Everyday while he watched the weather report from his hometown in the Midwest, he would call me to thank me for finding this little gem in San Diego. The location is perfect. He did not have a car and having everything so close gave him motivation to get out and explore the neighborhood. The home was maintained immaculately and outfitted with everything he could have needed during his stay. The neighbors were friendly and helpful. We only hope it will be available again next year!

Thanks again Nancy and Jackie. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with you.

Betty's Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved this darling cottage! It was bright, clean, comfortable and perfectly situated for our family of four. The included boogie boards and bikes were a big bonus, and we loved the proximity to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Except for when we went to Legoland or to visit family, we didn't need to use a car at all. Nancy's Vacation Rentals was pleasant and efficient to deal with, every step of the way. A super positive experience!

Excellent adventure!

  • 5 of 5

Wow what a charming, comfortable house. It was perfect to stay in and be near the beach, restaurants, and shopping!! Had a great time riding the beach cruiser bikes!! The house had pretty much everything we needed, A/C, WiFi, Flat Screens, and a well equipped kitchen. We mostly walked and tried out a lot of restaurants. It was relaxing and fun. Nice drive way for parking off the street.

Great weekend getaway house - close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! The house was clean, comfortable, well-stocked, and in a great location. We enjoyed walking to restaurants, shops, the beach, grocery store - all easily within walking distance. If you're worried about bar noise, we enjoyed that there is a fan setting in the AC system which made for nice white noise at night.

Great location.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice and clean. Didn't expect to have to clean as there was a cleaning fee that we had to pay. Close to beach. Great location. It was strange that the front door had no blinds and was completely open for anyone to pass by and see the residents inside.

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! You are correct, we do charge a cleaning fee which goes directly to our cleaners so they are able to clean upon your departure. I am sorry if you were under the impression that you had to clean. We do not expect our guests to do so. We do ask our guests to take care of a few minor things like loading the dishwasher, throwing away trash, and wiping down kitchen counters in order to avoid attracting any ants (which are very common here). You suggested adding blinds to the front door, however, we are confused as to why you feel this might be a necessity since the front door only has very small windows at the very top of the door. It would almost be impossible for anyone to see into the home from the street through any of these windows. Due to the angle, if anything was visible from the street it would more then likely just be the ceiling. There are definitely blinds on all of the front windows since we know privacy is a major concern at night for most anyone staying here. Thank you again for staying with us, and we look forward to having you back soon! Nancy's Vacation Rentals Staff

Great location

  • 5 of 5

An easy 5 block walk to the beach, one block from Trader Joe's, Sprouts, Woodstock's Pizza, and plenty of other food options. Long parking lot can accommodate vehicle with boat trailer. Typical neighborhood noise you would expect from beach area house. Younger drinking crowd is targeted by many of the bars, but this house is far enough away from most of them that it doesn't matter. Overall - great place and highly recommended.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at Betty's Beach Bungalow in the middle of April and it was great! In our group were 4 adults and even though we did not spend much time in the house there was plenty of room for four male military friends. It is smaller but very clean, and has a great local charm to it. Super close to a lot of stuff! We enjoyed Mission Beach, Pacific Beach, and the local bar scene which is all a short walk. And we had a lot of fun snorkeling in La Jolla Cove, and visiting the USS Midway which are all fairly short drives! Nancy's vacation rental took great care of us too; there was a bee problem at the house before we arrived, and I was notified of the problem before our check in time and they had an exterminator on sight right away and by the time we arrived I wouldn't of even have known there was a bee problem, but they were very proactive. Wherever I travel, I will always try and rent from Nancy's Vacation Rentals first before any where else. Great experience!
