Stroll on the sand along the shore or ride our 4 provided beach cruiser bicycles on the miles and miles of boardwalk along the bay and ocean. Sip wine on the balcony as you watch the sunset or walk around the bay 10 minutes to the ocean to watch for the green flash. At night you will see the two big paddle-wheel boats all lit up cruising in the bay, moonlight and lights of the strand across the bay reflecting off the water.

This large, 1800 sq ft non-smoking 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo features a 50-inch flat screen TV with cable in the living room, DVD, a mounted TV in the Master Bedroom, a TV in the second bedroom with a built in DVD player for the kids, high speed cable internet, Wi-Fi and a desk to work comfortably on your laptop computer.

The Master bedroom has a king bed, there is a queen in the 2nd bedroom, bunk beds with a full on the bottom and a single on the top in the third bedroom and a queen sofa bed. There is an easy to use gas log fireplace for ambiance in the comfortable living room.

Expectations were met

  • 4 of 5

Seven of us came for a birthday celebration. We felt the location was excellent. The picture on the website was deceiving showing a pool. Why show the pool (which is not part of the building) when there is a good view of the place from the beach? The space was nice, clean, easy directions, comfy beds, good water pressure. Everyone liked the place and said they would stay there again.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us here in San Diego to celebrate! We do apologize if you found the photo of the view from your unit deceiving - it wasn't meant to be in any way. We do make it clear in our breakdown of building amenities as well as on the heading of that photo that the pool is not part of the building. Again, sorry for any confusion, that wasn't our intention! We hope you will consider Nancy's Vacation Rentals again in the future. Warm Regards, The NVR Team

Vacation rental pacific beach San Diego

  • 4 of 5

Overall experience was good. Upon entering the condo it was stuffy. Would recommend airing it out before guest arrive. Ants in the cabinets and bugs in the bathroom. If u plan on using the dishes wash them first there were quite a few dirty dishes in the cabinets. Location of the condo was excellent and the layout is beautiful and roomy.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. We work hard to provide a relaxing experience for each of our guests and will continue to focus on improving the comfort of each of our units. We do our best to have our cleaners open the windows and prepare the units before guests arrive, though sometimes the cleaning is completed a few days before the next guest, depending on property schedules. We will continue to bring day of arrival inspections to the attention of cleaners and maintenance. We're happy to hear that, overall, you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you as guests on future trips to San Diego! Best, The NVR Team

Great Location, but that's about it

  • 3 of 5

You can't beat the location of this unit and two underground parking spaces were a plus. The kitchen is well equipped, but mostly with old pots and pans. In their defense, we have found this to be the case in most rentals. The beds were very uncomfortable and some had plastic mattress covers which were very hot. The bedding was not the correct size for some of the beds as well. There is a small balcony with electric BBQ which was adequate. There is no air conditioner and the unit is not situated to take advantage of the sea breezes, however there were fans throughout. The unit could also use a thorough cleaning. The availability of four bikes and beach toys was also a plus.

Owner's Response: We appreciate that mattress comfort is individual to the user. One person will find a mattress too hard, when another will find it too soft and then others will find it just right. We have had no complaints before or since these renters were at this unit. Their stay was during one of the hottest times we have had in San Diego in many years. While the box spring is covered with a plastic visqueen bed bug and dust mite allergen protector, the actual mattress has Protect-a-bed AllerZip Mattress encasements which are the pest control and hotel industry's choice for protecting mattresses against bed bugs, allergens, dust mites, dirt and liquids. These high-quality mattress protectors are used in hotels worldwide, and have been certified by an entomology laboratory to be 100% bed bug proof. AllerZip mattress encasements are made of breathable, 100% white terry cotton with a breathable hypoallergenic bed bug proof membrane layer so they are soft, cool and comfortable to sleep on.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a very good value, and my kids and my wife enjoyed the stay, as I did. I can't think of anything that the staff overlooked, with the possible exception of giving a brief description of how to ride, or bike, to the ocean by the shortest path (which is, I think, to walk out of the condo on the beach side, turn right on the sidewalk bordering sail bay, walk 10 minutes until you pass a small playground and walk across a small bridge, turn right at the first street encountered after the bridge, then turn left on the main avenue that leads four blocks to the ocean). Also, there's no A.C., and one or two extra fans would have been helpful, as it got just a bit warm inside at night, even though it's cool outside, nearly always in the evening, this close to the pacific.

Owner's Response: You've asked and we listened. We're excited to be able to offer Ceci's Riviera Condo as one of a few rentals in the beach area of San Diego that includes A/C. An air conditioner was added in March of 2010 just in time for summer!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay with NVR and we couldn't

have been happier! Nancy goes above and beyond

with providing all the extras, especially for a family:

beach toys, bikes, boogie boards and chairs. Plus

fabulously furnished and updated apts are better

than a hotel. The rentals are kept spotless and

there is everything you need to get started, plus

videos, games and internet. The prices are really

competitive too. We will definitely refer friends and

hopefully be back ourselves. Thanks a million! The

Newsom Clan...

We rented Posey's Condo for a girl's getaway and were very impressed! Nancy and Jeremy had thought of every little detail we might need on our relaxing vacation, and it was a very enjoyable weekend! We really appreciate the warm and courteous hospitality throughout the whole process.

There is a wonderful young children's playground right on Sail Bay about 200 yards down the boardwalk. We provide 4 adult beach cruiser bicycles for riding on the miles and miles of boardwalk around Mission Bay and all along the ocean. Great area for walking, too! Maybe you'll catch a glimpse of the green flash just as the sun sets on the ocean on cloudless days.
