About Nancy's Vacation Rentals

We love sharing our home with others so that they can create many family memories while enjoying sunny San Diego!

Nancy's Vacation Rentals purchased this house in 1990

Why Nancy's Vacation Rentals chose Pacific Beach

Best weather in the world!

Guestbook comments from the manager

My 83 year old father was lucky enough to stay in your unit at 1211 Felspar in Pacific Beach. The only thing that would have made him happier was if he could have stayed longer. Everyday while he watched the weather report from his hometown in the Midwest, he would call me to thank me for finding this little gem in San Diego. The location is perfect. He did not have a car and having everything so close gave him motivation to get out and explore the neighborhood. The home was maintained immaculately and outfitted with everything he could have needed during his stay. The neighbors were friendly and helpful. We only hope it will be available again next year!

Thanks again Nancy and Jackie. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with you.

Great location - adorable house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this adorable bungalow. It's close to everything - the beach, great restaurants and bars, shopping, Trader Joe's and Sprouts... anything you could need! The house is comfortable and cozy. It seems to have been updated since the photos were taken. There was some new, cute furniture and decor that made it feel more modern. We would definitely stay here again!

Relaxation at its finest!

  • 5 of 5

The property is amazing! Love that it has a drive way makes parking stress free, which is always good. Looks like they got some new furniture which really opens up the living room. The location is perfect for shopping and finding the best food places in PB. I have stayed here multiple times and it never disappoints.

Nice 2BR bungalow great for 2 friends or a family with a dog

  • 4 of 5

This 2 BR bungalow is in a great location in Pacific beach. The 2 BR is great for 2 people with a dog. The floors are all tile and hardwood and kept clean. The fenced in backyard and patio are great for a leisurely breakfast of BBQ. There is a fenced-in grassed dog run as part of the yard along the side and back of the house. The TV has a problem in that the programming disappear-- apparently from power surges. Had to have repair person. Repair person was there within a couple of hours, on time, very professional, quickly resolved the problem. We would definitely stay again.

Betty's Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved this darling cottage! It was bright, clean, comfortable and perfectly situated for our family of four. The included boogie boards and bikes were a big bonus, and we loved the proximity to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Except for when we went to Legoland or to visit family, we didn't need to use a car at all. Nancy's Vacation Rentals was pleasant and efficient to deal with, every step of the way. A super positive experience!
