This room is spacious enough to also be used as a sleeping area. Complete with 2 twin beds, in a trundle/day bed set-up. The bottom bed pulls out entirely & can roll away from the top twin for more privacy. Both beds have comfortable spring coil mattresses. When you are not sleeping here, the bottom bed rolls under the top one and makes into a comfortable day bed for reading or relaxing.

The cook will never feel closed in with this California-style kitchen that looks out into the living and dining room and to the swimming pool beyond over a long breakfast bar where people can sit on the high bar stools with comfy backs and visit with the cook. The newly remodeled kitchen sports granite counter-tops, sleek, contemporary all white cabinets and all new appliances including a side-by-side freezer/refrigerator in stainless steel, with cold water in the door and ice maker, both with filters, a new white stove top with a microwave above. The stainless steel double bowl sink & dishwasher make clean up easy.

The large master bedroom towards the back of the condo, will provide you a restful quiet night’s sleep. Here you`ll find a portable air conditioning unit, and a top-of-the-line queen pillow-top mattress. The bedroom has a separate wall- mounted TV, between bookcases, with a DVD player. There is large closet the length of the room, with 4 mirrored doors. The queen canopy bed will set the mood for intriguing romance. Or if you love to fall asleep to reading your favorite book, there are convenient lights within reach. Rich tones of magenta, purple, blue & lime adorn the master room and new high thread-count sheets are provided for your comfort. Before bed you can tip toe out to the jacuzzi/hot tub to sooth those tired muscles.

The bathroom layout works great for several people getting ready together. You`ll find a separate vanity & sink area with a 6 ft. closet, dressing space, mirror, lighting, etc. Inside the main bathroom is another sink, vanity cabinet, toilet, shower/tub combo, with new clear-glass sliding doors & towel bars. The dressing room and bathroom are clean and white with purple and lilac accent colors.

The hallway has lots of storage cabinets, here you will find beach equipment, & toys. Since you are so close to the beach, you can take out your own personal sand chairs & umbrella, walk a few steps down to the water & relax at the beach all day. It`s so close you can come up to your own private bathroom, or to get a snack for the beach.

Two bikes are provided with each condo for cruising the miles and miles of boardwalk paths along the Pacific coastline or around the lovely 4000 acre Mission Bay Aquatic Park. If there are more in your group or you need children’s bikes with helmets, there is a bike rental shop just 2 blocks to the south.

For Yoga enthusiast, walk 3 blocks north to Law Street Palisades Park, voted best beach overlook, where there is a large grassy lawn. Weekend mornings there are Yoga classes by donation. Life does not get much better than stretching out on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, sitting in your beach chairs on the grassy knoll directly in front of the building or watching the sunset over the ocean. Maybe you’ll even catch the Green Flash on a cloudless evening!

About Nancy's Vacation Rentals

We met here at Ocean Pt. Condos on the grassy knoll overlooking the Pacific Ocean back in 1988. That 4th of July we sat out front, watching the fireworks over the ocean - spectacular! At that time we were just neighbors living in the same complex, a building with the best ocean views, steps to the sand. But as the love story goes, we both felt that magical energy between us that night. As we walked the beach over the next several months, getting to know each other, we realized we both were in love, not only with each other but also this location. A year later we married, and vowed that we not only wanted to stay living by the Pacific Beach Ocean, in wonderful San Diego, we wanted to save enough money to buy a unit in this building on the oceanfront.

Nancy's Vacation Rentals purchased this condo in 2004

Why Nancy's Vacation Rentals chose Downtown

We hope you truly love our Beach Home that we just remodeled for you, as a Vacation Rental! It has a cozy warm feel.

We Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is right on the beach 🏖They have everything you need, I was surprised at how thoughtful every detail was. It was a little warm but the AC in the bedroom made up for it. The TV went down at one point but they had it reprogrammed the next morning, great service. The pool was quiet and cozy in the evening. Please be prepared for sand though, can’t avoid it you are at the beach lol

Great location off the beach

  • 3 of 5

Location was great. Condo was comfortable and has a nice living room and kitchen. We enjoyed the original art displayed throughout the condo.

The sheets had holes in them the bedspread had a stain. New bedding would be a good update. The bedroom closet was full of stuff and didn’t leave much room to put our things away.

Owner's Response: Hi Glenn, Thanks for your feedback. My apologies about the holes in the sheet. Next time, call us and we will bring you new sheets and a new bedspread. We have a fully staffed local team. We will clean out the closet and update the bedding. We invite you to stay with us again. Cheers, Kelly

Great Rental with Excellent Service

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with our two young boys stayed in condo 112. The building was under construction, but we knew this and the discount was part of the reason for our choice. The condo itself is comfortable and has plenty of room for a family of four. As mentioned in another review, the walls are thin, but if you've ever lived in an apartment building before, this is normal. The kitchen in the unit is great and has obviously been renovated, opening up the unit for great sight lines. When we first arrived, we discovered that the unit did not have any hot water, but a single phone call solved that issue right away. The pool was an absolute hit with my family and was a big part of our evenings. The strict guidelines in the building for noise and partying is perfect for families as the building is very quiet at night. Having a parking spot in the parkade is also valuable as parking around the building is hard to find.

We had rented a vehicle for the duration of our stay, but the area around the condo would be also be good for anyone without a vehicle. Restaurants and supermarkets are all within easy walking distance. Oscars Seafood is a good lunch/supper choice and Konos Cafe is a great breakfast place that has large portions and great food with the cheapest prices we had found. Oscars is right behind the unit and Konos is a 5 minute walk down the boardwalk. Also close by is the Baked Bear which is a great ice cream spot that almost always has a lineup out the door. There were a ton of places to have a drink the area, but we couldn't partake as we had two young kids in tow. The area seems to be a good fit for either families or younger couples looking for a nice place to relax and enjoy the night life.

Overall, I would recommend this unit and Nancy's Vacation Rentals and if I ever return to San Diego, I would definitely be looking at renting from Nancy once again.

Very Nice but complex is noisy

  • 4 of 5

The actual condo ( forgot Number ) was fine and in nice shape ..It could use some tweeking in the bathroom with some upgrades or a total remodel but it was very clean. The kitchen was very nice and was the star of the condo. Livingroom furniture was very comfortable. The downfall is the actual complex itself. Very thin walls where you can hear everything around you. The pool never gets sun even mid day. Just the way it was constructed. As explained we have a condo in Florida that we own and rent out so we are in tuned to what people like and will make them return. It is a shame that they did not put balconies in when they constructed the building. But it was kept up very nicely with a person out there everyday cleaning and sweeping. Nancy's vacation Rentals was great to work with. Extremely attentive and got back to me with any questions or concerns I had. One suggestion would be a crockpot in unit.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! I'm sorry to hear that you may have had noisy neighbors during your stay. We take that very seriously, and so does the HOA of the building itself. So even if it is not one of our rentals, we are still able to contact the HOA president so they can rectify the situation as well. Our goal is to make sure your vacation is as enjoyable and relaxing as possible! We look forward to hopefully hosting your family again in the near future, and please remember to ask us about our 'return guest' discount the next time you start planning your trip! Thank you for staying with us! Nancy's Vacation Rentals Team

The unit on the second floor was not air-conditioned and there was absolutely no ventilation. The room was located by the pool. Our complaints about the rooms, lack of ventilation and sweltering conditions were totally ignored. Although the rental company appeared to be sympathetic they were unresponsive to our need to breath! We left the unit three days early because we were exhausted from lack of sleep. I am determined to never rent again from Nancy's rental. They were nice but not helpful at the most basic level. What a rip-off this vacation was! (The date is approximate time of arrival)

Owner's Response: We are so sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay! Unfortunately, you happened to be here when we were experiencing a very abnormal heat wave throughout San Diego. Due to the fact that most coastal homes throughout San Diego are not built with central air (to include this condo - which we also state in the property description), and since we are all usually spoiled with pleasant temperatures year caught everyone off guard believe me! In fact if you pull the weather report for all of September 2015, you will see the dramatic increase from the end of August leading into the beginning of September. In fact, it shows it jumped from the mid 80's to the upper 90's during your stay with us. So that being said, it's no wonder why you were were here during some of the highest temperatures we experienced during this heat wave and unfortunately you were forced to suffer through it along with all of San Diego. That being said..we made every effort possible to locate/buy as many portable AC units as we could. As you can imagine, they were flying off the shelves so they could not be found anywhere when the heat wave first hit. In fact, even fans were completely sold out! I am sorry you felt we were unresponsive, but I can assure you we were desperately trying to do what we could to make all of our guests more comfortable. Since then, we have purchased enough portable AC units for the majority of our properties. More then likely, very few guests will ask to rent one but we wanted to make sure we had enough on hand should we ever experience a similar heat wave in the future. We take pride in providing the best guest satisfaction possible and feedback/reviews from many previous guests rings true to that. Again, I am so sorry you happened to visit when the heat wave hit and your vacation did not turn out as expected because of it. We certainly hope you will not let this experience define us as a whole because we would love the opportunity to help your next visit to San Diego be a much more enjoyable one!

great location for access to the beach, pool & restaurants.

  • 4 of 5

This was a comfortably furnished condo with lots of thought put into the needs of visitors. Lots of dishes, linens, towels & supplies for laundry. There was also a playpen & highchair for infants. Ice packs in the freezer & lots of beach items. Definitely a family friendly space. Having the pool right out the front door was nice but we were disappointed to not have any view of the beach from the condo. We were grateful for the air conditioner in the bedroom because the condo was hot with the warm temps. The a/c unit was very noisy though, which was an problem for us for good sleeping. The pool also had lots of rules which may hamper the fun for youngsters requesting balls & water toys for their entertainment. The pool was clean & a nice temperature for swimming. Overall we liked the condo but would prefer something with either windows to catch the breeze, or a quieter a/c unit. A cooler time of year would make it more appealing.
