Overview

About the property

Welcome to America's Finest City, San Diego! And, vacation in the Pacific Beach/Mission Beach and Bay area without paying a fortune! This family affordable 4-plex is just four blocks from the beach, and they all are fully-furnished vacation rentals. Affordable and cozy, this family friendly unit does not boast the ocean view that some properties have, but it also doen't have the hefty price tag either! Jason's unit (named for my nephew who helped renovate the unit) is priced for your budget with all the comforts of home for your family. It has a king size bed in one room. The second room has a bunk bed with a double on the bottom and a single on the top. There is also a queen sofa bed in the living room plus another couch.

Enjoy all San Diego has to offer in this comfortable two bedroom/one bath apartment with oak hardwood floors and all the amenities you need to enjoy your stay including 10 beach cruiser bicycles. All you need to do is bring your clothes, toiletries, and sunglasses!

Located in the very heart of Pacific Beach, these apartments are only minutes away from SeaWorld, the world famous San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Old Town with it's excellent restaurants, Belmont Park and it's authentic 1920's wooden roller-coaster, SeaPort Village, downtown San Diego's GasLamp Quarter, the Convention Center and Petco Park.

Our Felspar apartment is also 30 minutes from LegoLand, 40 minutes to the San Diego Wild Animal Park, 75 minutes to the quaint historic gold rush mountain town of Julian, and another 30 minutes beyond that is beautiful Anza Borrego Desert State Park! Even Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm can be enjoyed as a day trip. If the hustle bustle of tourist sights are not your thing, kick back and enjoy Pacific Beach's trendy ethnic and seafood restaurants, boutiques, bars or bask in the sun on the wide white-sand beaches that go on for miles.

If you don't feel like driving, park your car in the private garage and forget about it. You can get by just fine on your feet, by bicycle, or public transportation! Everything you need is within four blocks including beaches, grocery stores, shops, restaurants, bars, both Mission Bay and Pacific Beach, and the local bus stop. You can always hop on one of our easy rider beach cruisers and get around that way as well. ASK us if this unit has AC!

Come and enjoy everything San Diego has to offer without spending all money on the rental fee! We provide a coin-operated laundry room and this property has wireless internet, too.

About Nancy's Vacation Rentals

I was a flight attendant for Pan Am and United for 32 years and was based in Paris for the last 5 years of my career. I retired after 9-11 and converted this property into a vacation rental and began my next career! It's a natural progression from Flight Attendant/Purser to Vacation Rental Manager. I'm still trying to make sure people enjoy their vacations!

Nancy's Vacation Rentals purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Nancy's Vacation Rentals chose San Diego County

Because of the fabulous weather. I own this vacation rental in the Pacific Beach area because I love the community and laid back lifestyle San Diego has to offer along with all of the outdoor activities!

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.

Just bummed

  • 1 of 5

Thw bunk bed was good for our 3 boys. I felt like everything was just thrown together with old leftovers though. The kitchen was the worst part of our rental stay! And we rented a house just so we would have access to a kitchen so we could cook!! Everything was just hodgepodge. From the drinking glasses to cookware. The pots and pans were old and teflon flaking....was just a disappointment. Plus the neighbors across the way played their loud music every night after 930pm. Did I mention very loud. We couldnt even have the windows open. And we had 3 kids under the age of 11. And the garage- we didn't know we were going to have to share it with the other garage owner which we weren't happy about. The reason for the garage was so we wouldn't have to worry about our vehicle. And it was so tight and crammed with bikes and boogie boards and on our last day... a ladder appeared out of nowhere and was hung within a few inches of my car's front corner bumper. It was truly a disappointment for us on our family beach vacation.

Owner's Response: We're very sorry that you had such a disappointing experience. We at Nancy's Vacation Rentals strive to help all of our guests create positive and long lasting vacation memories. Whenever guests are dissatisfied, we do our best to remedy any situation as best as we can. We do want you to know that we have gone through the kitchen and replaced everything that needed replacing but we certainly would have responded during your stay had you reached out to us. We also can call neighbors who might be playing their music too loudly if we are made aware of the situation and have diffused loud neighbors during the spring break chaos in the past. We also provide white noise machines in each bedroom for nights when sleep seems a bit more elusive. Again, we apologize that your stay was disappointing and we wish we could have had the opportunity to correct some of the issues about which you wrote, we would have done so happily, if it meant a more positive experience for you and your family! We do hope you give Nancy's Vacation Rentals another opportunity in the future. We have nearly 60 vacation rentals to choose from, from the more budget rentals such as this to the higher end rentals if you are looking to celebrate any special events! We wish you the best, The NVR Team

Nice house

  • 4 of 5

Location: walking distance to the beach was great; spring break was a little too college filled- restaurants were catering to college aged not always family friendly.

House was nice and as stated. Would have liked some black out shades/curtains as the ones there let in lots of light and needed some repair.

Parking in garage was convenient as the street filled up in the evenings. Garage was tight for the mid-sized car we had but great to have.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback. We're happy you enjoyed your stay with us, overall. We will share your suggestions with the property owner regarding the blinds. We hope to have you as our guests again in the future, perhaps outside of spring break season!

PARTY CENTRAL AND THEFT. AN HONEST REVIE

  • 2 of 5

Place was clean and sufficient amount of the necessity's such as cooking utensils, towels extra pillows and extras like laundry soap and bath toiletries. here are the cons i experienced,

*The Bikes provided had no rubber on handle bars so it was just sticky tape and they were in terrible shape and piled on top each other at the foot of the very small garage making it very difficult to acess without hurting yourself. I call my first day there and requested new bike which i never received until Nancy herself responded to my message regarding the fact that i still had not received any bikes when i was told i would be getting them right away. Finally on my second to( booked 5 nights) last day there i was told i could use the bikes from the stall next to me which were no better. chain kept falling off one and the kick stand did not work on the other. there are very bulky heavy bikes that need a kick stand!

* Toaster did not work did not bother calling on that..why would I? I never had anybody respond to the whole bike situation did not feel like spending my entire vacation complaining! ( DID GET NEW ONE SEE LAST COMMENT)

* BEWARE this property is adjacent to several bars in the area and it is LOUD! This is why i believe this property is rented a lot by young party people who smoke on the premises (although not permitted) and use very vulgar language to include lewd conversations about the girls they picked up at the bars. This is not a family friendly property at all!

* They say pets are not allowed but this is not true they will make an exception as there were to big dogs that barked constantly upstairs from us

**LAST BUT NOT LEAST! I HAD A VERY PRETTY AND EXPENSIVE 3 TIER GOLD NECKLACE THAT WAS STOLEN FROM OUR UNIT THAT WAS LOCKED AT ALL TIMES! I BELIEVE IT WAS THE GENTLEMAN THAT FINALLY BROUGHT OUR TOASTER ! YES HE WAS LEAVING OUR UNIT AS WE CAME HOME. I LOOKED HIGH AND LOW BEFORE COMING TO THIS CONCLUSION BECAUSE WHO WANTS TO BELIEVE THAT SOMETHING LIKE THIS WOULD HAPPEN BUT IT DID! AND UNLESS THAT NECKLACE IS RETURNED TO ME I WILL STAND BY THIS REVIEW'

Final Note it is ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS THAT THEY HAVE ALL THESE GATE CODES AS THE FRONT OF THE PROPERTY IS COMPLETELY OPEN AND THE GATE BEHIND US WHERE THE GAS GRILLS ARE HAVE NO LOCK AND CAN BE ACCESSED BY ANYONE WALKING BY

Owner's Response: Please read the other 10 reviews and you will get a clue about this lady who forgot that she hung her necklace over the corner of a picture frame in the master bedroom. The minute she could not find it, she jumped to the conclusion that my wonderful employee, who brought her a new toaster, stole it. She wrote this comment while she was still there. She must feel pretty foolish now because minutes after she left, our cleaner found the necklace hanging on the corner of the picture frame and took a photo of it and we sent it to her asking her where and how we should return her necklace that she left behind. A couple days later we saw this comment that she posted accusing my employee of stealing her necklace, along with other really unfair comments and we were shocked. We have 9 bikes at the property for people renting the 4 units to use and the rubber grips fell off of ONE of them leaving the sticky tape. It's fixed now. The first night she called us asking for a bike for her daughter and we told her we only provide adult biles because kids under 18 need to wear a helmet and I don't want that liability. Yes, there was a lot of noise from the bars on Garnet St because she was there during Spring Break, the noisiest time of the year. There was ONE dog there belonging to the family of a man returning from military duty in Afghanistan. Since they the families don't know exactly when they are arriving, they could not make advance reservations so they could not find a pet-friendly property during the busy Spring Break period. I decided to bend the rules for that family and let them bring their dog. Not sure why she said the gates on the side of the property don't have locks because they all do to protect the BBQs and propane tanks from being carried away. The gate on the back alley has a lock, too, but the front of the property is open, as it should be. It's not a prison! There is just a small decorative wrought iron gate in the front. See photos. This is not our best or our quietest property but it is our least expensive! Nancy

Great location, great amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We're in town on business.

It was a last minute appointment and Nancy's staff accommodated us without hestitation.

The property was centrally located in PB and the house was everything we needed for our stay.

We'll be back. Thanks Nancy's crew!

Convenient and comfy

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week in Pacific Beach. THe apartment was as described and the only reason I did not give it 5 stars was the neighborhood was mostly taverns, bars and tatoo parlors. We (my 7 year old grand daughter and her other grand mother) had to walk several long blocks to find someplace to eat that was apppropriate for us. The apartment was clean and the kitchen well stocked with dishes and cooking equipment so that was a big plus. The living room furniture was a bit worn but bedrooms were great. Our coffee maker stopped brewing and my email was answered almost immediately and a new one was brought over before the end of the day!! All in all, a nice place to stay.

Great Place for Family with Kids

  • 4 of 5

We had Great Time. Nancy's vacation rental were completely accurate with all pictures, Only missing part was Air-conditioner and It was my mistake, I did not notice in the details. Other than that it is great place to stay with family. Short drive to everything in San Diego. Lots and lots of Linens. We were stayed 7 days and no shortage of linens. Everything Perfect. Walkable distance to Beach. Thank you for Nancy's vacation rental for the easy process.
