About Nancy's Vacation Rentals
I purchased this condo to live in when I was single and turned it into a vacation rental in 2002 when my husband (who is from Colorado) and I moved to Julian, a small historical gold rush town in the mountains of San Diego. "You can take the boy out of the mountains but you can't take the mountains out of the boy." I was an international flight attendant for Pan Am and United but retired in 2001 after 32 years, the last 5 years of my flying career was out of United's base in Paris, France. I retired from flying after the tragic events of 9-11 and started a Vacation Rental business.
Nancy's Vacation Rentals purchased this Condo in 1990
Why Nancy's Vacation Rentals chose Pacific Beach
I fell in love with the location and the balcony overlooking beautiful Sail Bay. It's my favorite location in all of San Diego!This quiet upscale bay front area is the very convenient and the perfect scenic location for visiting San Diego.
What makes this Condo unique
Watching the sunsets from the balcony (look for the green flash!) and all the sailboats, catamarans and outrigger canoes on the bay and the boardwalk below. Strolling or bike riding on the boardwalk around 4000 acre Mission Bay and along the ocean. We provide the bikes!

I was excited after booking. But shortly after I received a call from Nancy's vacation rental saying that I did not pay enough. She said that because I only booked from the Saturday before Christmas until the Sunday after and not through the New Year she was going to have to charge me more. She said nobody is going to book half a week for the New Year and that was a big majority of the income for their rentals. I asked why VRBO had wrong pricing, told her I had my plane tickets, work schedule arranged, and my family and kids had done the same. She did not seem to care and kept pushing. I had the rental insurance which I brought up. She said that makes it a little bit more tricky. She seemed very confident about doing this like she had done it before. After reading up it looks like owners of vacation rentals on VRBO and others can actually cancel if they choose and the renters really have no recourse. I took the bait and paid the extra money. We stayed in San Diego. It was a great location. It was right on the bay and beach. In the initial pictures on VRBO it listed the amenities. The description has changed a little bit currently but at the end of the ad is said "just ask us if we have air conditioning". They way it was worded was almost fantastic. I remember thinking of course it has air conditioning. With all the other amenities they took the time to mention why would they say it the way they did? Well they DO NOT! It has no HVAC at all. It was December and probably not entirely necessary. We had a couple storms that kept it cool. There were times that it was hot though. I could not imagine the summer. Here is the kicker. when the storms came it actually got cold. There is a small natural gas fireplace. We lit it and immediately smelt un burnt natural gas. In their instructions about the fireplace they said make sure you know how to use the fireplace before using. I have one at home that is very simple. I hit a switch it lights. No smell lots of heat. This one was not like that. You are never really sure if the gas turns off all of the way. It is almost stripped out. Her instruction literally say turn the knob get a match put it under the grate use two hands and lean back when lighting. haha.. It was a good think she put lean back because it was definitely necessary.
Also in the pictures it shows a swimming pool. This swimming pool is of the neighboring property. Not theirs. Me and my daughter ran outside in the
The condo couldn’t have been in a better location. It was very close to all amenities that San Diego has to offer! The views are breathtaking. K&C

Great place and location
We really enjoyed our stay. Lots of door codes etc to enter at first but overall check in is easy.
The appartement could need a little update but the most important was there, comfortable and very clean.The location is great, not far from most attractions and the beach is beautiful . Excellent for family, it is safe and a beautiful little park by the beach .. about 3 min walk.
Bikes available to stroll, beach chairs and sand toys for kids. i would return coming back to SD
Thanks for sharing your experience!
Fantastic mission bay beachfront condo! Amazing view!
The condo was clean and well maintained with sufficient space for a family of 4. You can’t beat the view of the bay from the balcony! It’s a great location right on the beach which is also a short walk to restaurants and the grocery store. We expect to return to this property in the future.
Thank you for your review, Becky! Hope to have you all back to stay again.
