About Nancy Felton

My name is Nancy Felton and I have been a Realtor in Seattle for 37 years. I have owned and operated 3 other vacation rentals for almost 10 years. San Diego is such a fun place that I purchased this property to make into a vacation rental.

Nancy Felton purchased this house in 2017

Why Nancy Felton chose North Park

I just purchased this property in October, 2017 and was thrilled to be able to find a Spanish style place with two homes on one lot.

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with this neighborhood that is so close to everything, from 3 blocks to olympic sized swimming pool to the local cafe only 1 block away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very much appreciated the details you included. Lots of towels, well stocked and workable kitchen (we are chefs) walkability to lots of places, adorable yard. Really a great little place and the efforts made decorating and on extras were very much appreciated;))

We had a wonderful stay. We would definitely like to book again as we visit San Diego several times a year. Thank you!

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in North park casa. The place was immaculate when we arrived and had everything we might have needed. My husband and two children (5 and 6) stayed and there was plenty of room for all of us. The kids loved playing on the patios. The decor was nice. I’d recommend this rental to anyone coming to San Diego. It was close to Balboa park too.

The Casa had everything we needed. Loved all the outside sitting areas so that we could absorb the sun! Great to have off street parking! Nice quiet residential area!

Thank You Nancy! Your attention to detail is commendable!!

Excellent location!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I debated on staying at a hotel or at a rental. Boy am I glad we stayed here. We were all so impressed and it truly felt like home. I personally felt it was cleaner than a hotel and loved the privacy. Nancy was quick to respond to questions too. The location is within walking distance to a Smart & Final and the best coffee shop ever! Thank you for making our vacation enjoyable!

My wife and I loved the place. It was very well furnished, wonderful courtyard, clean, and located near a local supermarket and donut shop. Who could ask for more. It was also very quiet with no noticeable road traffic noise. We would definitely stay here again
