If you want peace and quiet, this is the place for you. This one bedroom, one bath, executive rental is situated on the Penthouse floor of a 4-story condominium complex and offers a 180 degree totally unobstructed panoramic view overlooking the Crown Point Seabird Estuary, Mission Bay, SeaWorld and downtown San Diego.
The lights at night are captivating. No mosquitoes here, it's salt water. This photo was taken at low tide but at high tide the entire bird sanctuary is underwater with just the highest knolls visible as islands.
Soak up some early morning sun on the East-facing balcony while enjoying your coffee and checking your email on the wireless network.
The comfortable living room has an L-shaped couch with soft, comfortable fabric, a huge flat screen TV, DVD/VCR and a DVR, phone, and awesome views. NEW Queen size Murphy Bed can sleep two extra guests.
The king bed with it's Memory Foam topper and a goose-down duvet has prompted many guests to comment that they have never slept so well away from home. When you sit up in bed you will be greeted with the restful morning view of the bay and fabulous sunrises, if you get up that early.
A full time gardener and maintenance man keeps the common area of this nicely-landscaped complex looking beautiful.There is a heated pool, hot tub, well-equipped exercise room and a sauna as well as a respectable take one-leave one library and two large gas BBQs for your enjoyment. There are even washers and dryers by the pool if you want to do your laundry while you are exercising or relaxing in the hot tub.
A two block walk will take you to the entrance to Mission Bay Park where you can put your toes in the sand or take a leisurely stroll, jog, or bicycle ride for miles on the boardwalk that runs along Mission and Sail Bays and over to the ocean.

Nancy's Vacation Rentals was professional and helpful at all times. When minor problems occurred (how to use the DVD player) the response was immediate and cheerful. The condo had tasteful furnishings and everything was very clean and in good condition. The king bed was luxurious and the sunrise views from the bedroom windows were amazing. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony with coffee and/or wine and enjoying the abundant shorebird activity. Heated pool was wonderful in the morning, followed by the jacuzzi that we always had to ourselves.
Great Location - Great Price

This was just what we needed. We stayed for 1 month during our relocation to San Diego. The location was perfect...15 minutes to work and airport (maybe even a little less). The only downsides were no a/C when it got very warm the last few days; weekends there were parties in other condos that you could not close out the noise; and the grill was in a public area with no working ignition and we had no lighters/matches with us. I would definitely stay here again. It was perfect for 2 people. We really enjoyed the Sea World fireworks, walking/running at the beach and watching birds in the estuary.

After 45 days in Nancy's condo we didn't hesitate to re-book for next winter. This apartment has all the comforts but what impressed us most was the immediate response and effort to make our stay the best it could be. What did we like best? Even though we were there for January and February when the temps hovered around 60, we were able to have breakfast on the balcony most of the time. Somehow it was always warm out there, if not hot. The apartment itself comes supplied with extra heaters, but these were hardly needed.
The location is perfect, away from touristy Mission Beach, yet just a short drive away. Trader Joe's is near as are a lot of wonderful restaurants. The apartment is very close to I-5 for quick access to all sites. Golf is just down the road. This is definitely the best apartment of the four I have stayed in while spending the last 14 winters in San Diego.
We come back every year!

We entered out rental with ease. If you did have a problem, the staff would handle it immediately. It really has become our home away from home. The best part is opening that door and taking in the view. We are hoping to see a new sofa in the future.

What a nice quiet place to get away. Not to mention the incredible sunrise and view from living room to bedroom. You'll be spoiled though, and not much else will compare.
Wonderful location for a peaceful place to stay!

We loved everything about Nancy's condo! The place was nicely decorated, very clean, organized, and well-thought out for guests! The bed in the Master bedroom was very comfortable; we had wi-fi access; the view is exactly as shown in the pictures; and the place was very peaceful and quiet (yet near enough to the beach, Garnet ave., and freeway access).
Wonderful view; restful, fun stay

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay here in this one bedroom condo on the 4th floor with a balcony overlooking an estuary and bay in the background. The view was magnificent and we spent many hours out on the balcony, soaking up the view and sun. We also enjoyed the lovely pool and jacuzzi, along with the work out room and sauna. The location was perfect, allowing us to access beaches and boat rentals in the Mission Bay area, as well as Balboa Park and the harbor/downtown area only 15 minutes away. We'd stay here again in the future - and would recommend it to friends and family.

Making the plans for our stay was pain free. This was our third stay in the last year. A total of 9 weeks. The condo is in a good location with good security.
Cons: uncomfortable couch, windows leak

My husband and I loved Nancy's Penthouse unit. It was so quiet. The balcony is very private and it was wonderful to wake up to sunrise with the birds chirping away in the bird sanctuary below. Every morning I would walk along the sanctuary and down to the beach in Mission Bay Park to look at the birds. The location is excellent for getting anywhere. There are two wonderful beach chairs that we took everywhere with us and sat listening to the ocean from sunset cliffs to Point Loma to La Jolla. The kitchen is fully equipped and the bed is very comfortable. As a matter of fact, when we got home, my husband had trouble getting to sleep. He said our bed wasn't as comfortable!
Nancy is very friendly and efficient. For example, the coffee pot carafe was missing when we checked in. Within an hour, Nancy arrived with a new coffee pot. She also replaced the beach chairs with brand new backpack ones which even recline.
We can't wait to go back to beautiful San Diego and Crown Point Penthouse.

What a perfect location to chill out from the demands of work. The condo has a great view overlooking San Diego and the bay, a cozy deck and is just the right size for two adults. We saw fireworks every evening and visited the sites and beaches during the day. Dont forget your binoculars.

Property was as advertised. The view of Mission Bay was exactly as portrayed on the website. Enjoyed eating breakfast and dinner on the balcony with the view. Kitchen was well applianced and included everything needed for cooking. Bed was a little soft with foam padding but that was easy to fix by removing the padding. Easy to get to and from I-5. Enjoyable stay.

Our stay was wonderful. The Condo was very nice. I was pleased that the building was secure and quiet. The location was perfect for us. The view was out of this world.
We enjoyed the fireworks from across the bay on Saturday and Sunday nights. The reflection in the bay added to the enjoyment.
Pros: I liked that the condo was stocked with every thing to make staying easier. The cons, The couch was very uncomfortable with the cusions smashed down. The living room was very crowed with furniture. More furniture than pictures show The hair dryer was missing. I hadn't planned for that. Smaller than expected.
Fun in San Diego

We enjoyed our stay, however it was little too small for us. I traveled with my husband and a 2 year boy. It would of been perfect if it was just my husband and I. The unit was very clean inside but outside of the building needs updating. The carpet was old and the wall needs new paint. The location of the condo was excellent. Close to stores and a short walk to the park. We did have one mishap at the penhouse where I thought it could of been handle better. My son locked the bedroom door and the owner did not have a key for it. So it took them a long time to have a locksmith come to the house to get it open. It wasted a whole day of our time in San Diego and made us pay for the locksmith fee. Customer services could of been better where they offer to come to the unit to wait for the locksmith for us so we go sightseeing. If I had to do it over, I would of stay somewhere else.
A very relaxing and perfect setting for a short stay!

I was extremely happy with my Crown Point stay and the wonderful view of the back bay...I had my son and his best friend visit and we BBQ around the pool and had a great time. The view from the patio was interesting and I couldn't believe the changes when the tide came in...it was breath-taking! The accommodations were very comfortable!
