About Nancy Chapman

Married 44 years,

Built our home in we raised our two children,

now both married with children of their own. Still local, we

get to enjoy seeing our 4 grandchildren grow is

a true blessing to us.

Our Casita was born in 2012 (having a builder for a husband is great) :-) thus fulfilling my dream to

have a sweet little place for friends and family to enjoy; giving all who visit a place to rest, recharge

and discover new and interesting places to see and experience.

Why Nancy Chapman chose Vista

We built on this property because of the central location to anything and everything you may ever need, but, far enough away to have peace and quiet. Having an ocean view and beautiful sunsets is a wonderful added bonus!

What makes this bungalow unique

Our Casita is located 5 minutes from the 78 Hwy so getting around is incredibly easy. Once here you will be surrounded by our gardens with lovely mosiac tile work that I have enjoyed creating through the years and beautiful running fountain to add to the peacefulness.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a small get away and to visit some breweries, I don't think I could have found a more perfect place for us. The grounds are beautiful and the room comfortable, very clean and a perfect size, plus the location is fantastic! Nancy and Jim are wonderful, friendly hosts who make you feel welcome, when we showed up Nancy had a list of local breweries printed up for us, there were also warm oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and fresh fruit in the room. You had everything you needed if you wished to cook in room, the kitchenette is a perfect size for two.

Your location is close to downtown which has a few breweries, cafes and shopping - only about 5-10 minutes depending on traffic - Oceanside & Carlsbad are only 15 minutes away, where we decided to go for breakfast and stroll near the beach. There are too many breweries to mention not far away.

Whether you are looking to check out some breweries, the beaches of North San Diego, casual or fine dining, local markets & crafts/arts, Casita is the place to stay, a perfect little get away with wonderful hosts and a beautiful yard (which Nancy & Jim have worked hard to make nice with little surprises if you look around).

We would love to book here again if we decide to head to the area again, well worth it!!!

Thank you Nancy and Jim for a wonderful !

Very Cute Casita!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and when we got there there was some cookies that were still warm baked for us. This Casita is below the main house but completely separate. It backs up to this beautiful backyard as shown in the picture. Overall great and communication was good as well!
