This lovely lower story duplex home was fully remodeled in May of 2011. It is located just 5 houses from the ocean with an ocean view patio area allowing you to fully enjoy the California lifestyle! Comfortable living room with high ceilings, exposed beams, plenty of natural light, a large flat screen TV, and a queen sofa bed with an upgraded gel-infused memory foam mattress (4/2014) for extra sleeping room. The kitchen has hardwood cabinets, granite counter tops, appliances, utensils, and everything you need for cooking and eating at home around the... dining table for four. The bedroom has a sumptuous pillow top king sized bed with a large flat screen TV and DVD player.
We provide two adult beach cruiser bicycles for exploring the miles of boardwalk beginning at Law Street and running along the ocean and 4,000 acre Mission Bay Park. Or you can walk the short 1/2 block to the beach with your beach chairs, towels, and sand toys and spend the day. Nearby Palisades Park was voted best beach overlook for watching the sunsets and the surfers.
On your patio there is an outdoor shower, patio chairs around a table with an umbrella, and a BBQ so your evenings and afternoons can be spent relaxing at home.
This new rental is truly a quiet oasis at the beach, yet you are just 6 blocks from Crystal Pier and the myriad of seafood, steak, and ethnic restaurants that Pacific Beach has to offer.
This location couldn't get any better...You are only two miles from SeaWorld, four miles from Old Town, eight miles from the airport, and the downtown GasLamp area, the famous San Diego Zoo, and the Embarcadero with it's floating museums. LegoLand, the Wild Animal Park, Disneyland, the historical gold mining town of Julian and Anza Borrego Desert State Park are all within easy driving distance. Come and enjoy all that San Diego has to offer including, according to us, the best weather in the nation!

Brought my son on a business trip and wanted to get out of the corporate/downtown scene. This was a perfect fit. Quiet, personal space close to the beach where we could soak up the relaxing parts of San Diego when we weren't working.
Nice stay in a great location

Enjoyed our stay at this rental... all was as described. The rental had everything we needed... the kids' beach toys and the beach chairs were a great touch that got some good use! Location was central to many things... we would stay again!

We had a fine stay at 701 Law Street. It's in a very good location, just a block from the beach. The apartment is clean and well appointed. The kitchen is better equipped than our daughter's kitchen and she lives in San Diego year round. We used the beach chairs but did not have a chance to try the bicycles or the surf boards. The bed was very comfortable and everything worked just as it should.
An awesome stay!

My boyfriend and I stayed at this lovely house for 9 days. The weather was perfect, the location was perfect, and everything that the house included fit our active needs. We enjoyed using the surf boards, bikes, and beach chairs during our vacation. This place is in walking distance from stores, awesome restaurants, and clothing stores. If you're looking for a vacation home this place is great. The house itself was clean, offered toiletries, and a full kitchen of supplies. Nancy's Vacation Rentals did a wonderful job at getting back to us in a timely matter even when we asked to rent the place in a short time. Thanks again for a wonderful and unforgettable experience!
Perfect getaway location!

We spent a week here, and it was lovely. Its very close to the beach,is well-equipped and comfortable. We had visitors a few evenings, and the seating area provided a cozy and relaxing environment for conversation. The patio area in front is a great place for having breakfast, or relaxing in the evening.

I really don't want to leave a review, because I don't want the word to get out how awesome this place is, I want to keep it all to myself!!!
We stayed here the week of Thanksgiving and really enjoyed ourselves. The house is small but quaint. Nicely equipped kitchen, comfortable living area, very comfortable king bed and nice bathroom. We did have a small problem with ants in the kitchen, but nothing that we couldn't handle. The batteries on the smoke detector died during our stay, we woke up to "chirping" one morning, however, a representative from Nancy's rental was there that day with a new battery. There are bikes that come with the property that we rode daily. The best part about the house is that is is only steps from the beach. There is no better way to start your day than a walk on the beach. There is also a little park area just steps from the house that offers free yoga classes Saturday and Sunday. The location of the house is close to restaurants, grocery, etc. I really can't say enough about this place, in fact, I'm gonna stop now. Like I said, I want it all to myself!!! Read more

This was our first stay at a vacation rental and from our experience, this will be our first choice of accommodation for future holidays. The response from Nancy's Vacation Rentals were prompt and helpful. The property itself is located in a quiet neighborhood of Pacific Beach, a few short steps away from the ocean, which we could see from the window and the patio. So glad it was a bit away from the crowded/bustling blocks which were themselves just walking distance, so we had the best of both worlds. The rooms were very well kept, well stocked with linen, and had all amenities we could ask for.
If we were to visit San Diego again, we would most definitely return.

I would highly recommend staying here. I flew in from Georgia having no idea what was around this area. You are literally around everything! There were bikes available, which could take you anywhere. The house provided boogie boards, surf boards, towels, extra blankets, soap, shampoo, etc. etc. Extremely satisfied and will rent this house again when I return to San Diego. An amazing house in an amazing city.

We had a great time at this cute rental, loved the location only a few houses from the beach, loved the apartment with the full kitchen and amenities. The information book was very helpful for finding restaurants and local things to do and Nancy's Rentals provided us with a slew of great links for local attractions, shopping, discounts, restaurants, maps and more. We would definitely stay there again.

We loved our place on Law Street. The apartment was the perfect size for our family of 4. I loved having a kitchen to cook in. Location was everything too. Right by the beach and in perfect walking distance to great restaurants and stores. Met the owner our first day and he was very kind and welcoming. We will come back for sure!

Very, very nice but huge ant problem in the kitchen.
Left on 09/19/2013 for a stay in September 2013 | David
This rental had all the promise of being a wonderful five star experience. The location, amenities, & decor were excellent! We couldn't have asked for better. However, one of the main reasons we rented a twinhome rather than a hotel room was we wanted to have a kitchen we could use to prepare meals. That was impossible in this rental. The ant problem was ridiculous and gross. The only place we could keep food so the ants wouldn't get to it was in the refrigerator. We actually had dirty dishes in the dishwasher for two days and when we opened it the 3rd morning, there were thousands of ants inside the dishwasher. The garbage was below the sink and half way through the week - yep - thousands of ants were in the garbage and under the sink. It ruined the absolutely otherwise perfect accomodations. Thank God we ran into the cleaning supervisor when we first got there and he let us know that there was a small ant problem in the kitchen. Small? Hardly. Try unbelievable. I felt sorry for the renters who were staying after us. We ate out all week.

CjJ's Ocean Oasis is the perfect spot to chill at the beach. This unit is spotless with many amenities and recent remodeling. Beautifully furnished with nice extras such as bikes and surfboards. Ocean views from the living room and patio were soothing. We can't wait to return!

Our experience with Nancy's Vacation Rentals and Cj's Ocean Oasis was wonderful. Nancy's provided exceptional customer service and we would definitely use them again. The rental was immaculate. I'd love for whoever cleans and organizes that place to clean my home! The rental is super cute and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We loved being able to walk to the beach and to a good variety of restaurants. We also liked knowing we had our own reserved parking place! The master bed was comfortable. However the pull-out sofa bed was not. Our 5 yr old didn't mind it at all...but I don't think anyone else could sleep on it. So I wholeheartedly recommend this home if you will only be using the master bed or, like us, you have a child who won't mind the sofa bed. Thank you so much to Nancy's for your flawless service and to the owner's of Cj's for sharing your home with us.
Vacation Condo - 701 Law Street
Left on 12/24/2012 for a stay in December 2012 | R Barton
My wife and I have been making annual trips to San Diego for a number of years to visit our daughter. The condo at 701 Law Street is by far the nicest place in San Diego that we have stayed in since we started coming out. The condo has a living room that is very nicely furnished with a large flat-screen HD TV, a wide selection of cable channels, and Wi-Fi with a high speed internet connection. The kitchen was well equipped and the bedroom is roomy and comfortable. Above all the condo was exceptionally clean, well cared for and quite close to the beach. I am sure we will stay here again on our next trip out. We reserved the condo through Nancy's Vacation Rentals. They were polite and professional and answered all of our questions.

Just a few houses from one of the best beaches in the whole of San Diego, this is a clean, comfortable, and thoroughly equipped rental. The owners have meticulously provided all a guest could want for a relaxing beach getaway, including plenty of beach towels, a couple of beach bikes to use on the miles of boardwalk less than a block from the house, sufficient cooking equipment to dine in if you wish, and lots of good suggestions for local eateries if you prefer to dine out. A private parking space in back is a definite plus, but you don't really need to drive once you've arrived, because there's everything for the perfect stay within walking distance. Another plus: It is quiet despite its close proximity to the beach and abundant nightlife not far away.

The house is in a great location! Close to the airport, walking distance to the beach and many restaurants are close by. It was clean, well stocked and comfortable. We loved using the bikes and beach chairs that were provided. The kitchen is well supplied and we also used the laundry amenities. Nancy's Vacation Rentals is easy to work with / make reservations. We would come back to this house in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone! Great vacation for us.
Perfect birthday weekend
Left on 10/19/2012 for a stay in October 2012 | Tiffany
My husband and I celebrated my 40th birthday in Pacific Beach, and it was perfect! Cj's was definitely an ocean oasis. It was great to walk out of the house and right onto the beach! We ate several meals on the front patio, which is lovely. And we were so close to the Law St. park overlooking the ocean that we walked down with a breakfast picnic one morning! The bikes and beach equipment were a really nice convenience, the kitchen is stocked better than any other place we have stayed, and everything is super clean! Our host was very friendly and informative, yet gave us our privacy. We loved this place and want to return asap!! Only wish there was enough room for both of our teenage kids to join us!! Couples and very small families will be comfortable here.

We had a wonderful stay at Cj's. The property was very nice and very well described on the website. The only issue we had was we had no wifi the entire time. We spoke with Nancy's and the owner (who indicated it wasn't working for the last renters either), but it wasn't resolved. It was disappointing to lug a laptop across the country through security checkpoints and then not be able to use it. It was wonderful to have the washer and dryer, but the washer was a bit difficult to start as it was intermittent in starting. Overall we had a great experience and are already talking about returning, but would need to verify the wifi status first.
Law Street Paradise

My family and I have rented on Law Street for many years. This home is by far, the nicest, cleanest, and most well appointed rental we've ever stayed in. More than half the beach items we bring with us from home weren't needed because they were already provided. From deluxe beach chairs to cruiser bikes, it was all there. The space was well laid out and super clean. The location was perfect and we could not have been happier. We will definitely stay there again.

The condo was very clean and newly renovated. It was well equipped with bikes, boogie boards surf boards etc.. The kitchen was well equipped as well. The location was great right by the beach and walking distance to some fun restaurants and shops. The owner was very nice and helpful.
I had a little bit of issues with Nancy's in the beginning, but it all worked out in the end.
My husband, twelve year old and I had a blast in SD and the great condo was gravy. I suggest that if you can stay in a condo not a hotel it gives more space. I just wish we would have more time to just relax on the beach.

My husband and I were extremely pleased with this vacation home. It is very comfortable and homey. It is stocked with everything you could need for a comfortable vacation including kitchen supplies, beach chairs and bikes, and laundry supplies. It is very close to the beach so we could walk to the ocean or a nearby restaurant in a short time. This location makes it a bit noisy during the day with hustle and bustle of families going to the beach, but it is great if you like to people watch. The landlord was friendly and helpful and wouldn't hesitate to return in the future.

We spent a week using this place as our home. And while there it really felt like home. The entire home is renovated with amazing finishes. With the beach so close we used the bikes almost every day to find a good spot on the beach where we played with the boogie boards and sat on the beach. I really can't find anything that we didn't like!

There are not enough good comments we can make about our stay at Cj's Ocean Oasis...we will be back. We always love Pacific Beach and this condo was perfectly located, easy to find, well furnished and had everything you could need. Comfy surroundings, walk to the beach, Kono's, etc within minutes. We stayed 4 nights with our children (7 yr old son, 3 yr old daughter) and could not have been more comfy. We shopped at Trader Joe's upon our arrival which was conveniently located. The condo was furnished with everything we needed in the kitchen, bath and bedrooms. After long, hot days at SeaWorld, PetCo Park, Legoland, etc we were able to settle in easily to our Law Street stay. There are lots of comings and goings right out in front of the condo, surfers, beach goers and visitors. But...despite all the activity we felt we could close the doors and windows when we wanted to and settle into quiet time. This place is just as written on the website from beach equipment, towels, boogie board to kitchen appliances, to bathroom amenities to location. The wireless access is there, tv's, well appointed furniture, clean linens, pots, pans, dishes, wine glasses...i could go on and on. Want to go back for a "girls trip" weekend, with just my spouse and again with our kiddos. You can't go wrong staying here!!! The photos are exactly as the place appears. Enjoy - we did and we plan to again!

We spent a week over this past Christmas holiday in Cj's Ocean condo. We were very pleased with the accommodations. The condo was very clean and bright with a well stocked kitchen and all the modern conveniences you need when you're away from home including high def. Tv's, wi-fi, a gas grill, and off street parking. My husband loved taking long walks on the beach and biking. I enjoyed some well deserved R&R.; Cj's place is centrally located near the beach, shopping, restaurants and was especially convenient for us because it was only a few miles from my son and daughter-in-laws apartment. I would highly recommend a stay if you'd like a quiet cozy getaway. We will likely stay there again during a future trip to San Diego.

This was by far one of the best vacations I have been on! This house is aboslutely perfect for various reasons from the look, amentities, location, etc. The house looked very newly remodeled and modern which made us feel right at home. All of the furniture and appliances are fresh, clean, and up to date. The amenities at the rental are outstanding. We got a lot of use out of the awesome beach cruisers that do also come with locks so you can enjoy a fun ride along the boardwalk, which is less than a minute away, then stop at any of the numerous locations for a quick bite or view of the ocean. The laundry, parking spot, fully stocked kitchen, fully stocked bathroom, lovely patio with bbq, surfboards, beach games/chairs, board game closet, tv, dvr, ps3, etc. were all amazing features added to this place. The location was also wonderful. The house is less than a minute walk to the beach, right up the sidewalk, which also leads to the boardwalk. The area around the house is also really nice, lots of cute beach houses, fairly quiet as well. The owners of this rental also live right upstairs, they were very respectful of our privacy but also very friendly, and came by to introdue themselves and make some great suggestions for dinner and things to do. The house also has a binder per the owners with instructions for pretty much everything so you won't have any questions about how to work/what to do with something, it is all taken care of for you. I can't wait to get back for another vacation at this location!

Hate to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay because we might not be able to rent it next year. It was great! Our sons live in PB so being a few blocks from their home was important. We stayed a couple of homes away last year so we knew we wanted the Law St. location. The renovations made were very nice and the owners accounted for all our wishes. We hope to be returning here again next year.

Cj's Ocean Oasis is absolutely beautiful! Jim and Caroline have provided everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay and memorable vacation. The beach is super close and never crowded. We enjoyed chatting with Jim and Caroline who were very helpful providing information for the area. I simply can't say enough about the house or the owners. This was one of the best vacations I've ever had. I can't wait to return.

Beyond our expectations
Left on 08/09/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | Bob Watt
When we decided to rent Cj's Ocean Oasis, we had read the reviews and description of the property and also looked closely at the pictures when comparing to other locations. We decided this condo best suited our needs (just my wife and me). The description and pictures did not do this home justice. Carolyn and Jim, the owners, have tried to think of everything in order to make your stay on Pacific Beach a wonderful experience. The home itself was vey upscale, looked and felt brand new, and was extremely comfortable.
Having dedicated off-street parking for us and a spot for a guest vehicle was very important, as Law Street was always busy with people coming and going to/from the beach. Law Street is at the very north end of the Pacific Beach boardwalk. The boardwalk and beach access was perhaps 300 feet from the front door.
We enjoyed relaxing in the beautiful front patio/garden as you could watch the parade of people as well as see the ocean.
We dined at three different restaurants that were recommended in the comprehensive Visitor's Guide binder provided by Carolyn and Jim. All were within walking distance, and rated 4 stars for one and 5 stars for the other two.
Our daughter lives in San Diego, so this was a chance to visit with her. We entertined her and her friends at the condo on several occasions. They were impressed with the home, and it was a pleasure to have guests in a comfortable environment. The place really felt like a home and not just a condo.
Thanks Carolyn and Jim!

Overview: We stayed here with our 2 year old and it was the best decision we made. The vacation rental has "everything" (i.e. bathing-shampoo, conditioner, body wash, kitchen-pots/pans, dishes, utensils,day at the beach - surf board, boogie boards, sand toys, towels, chairs, umbrellas and much more) you need to have a great stay at the beach. All you have to do is bring your luggage and stop by Ralph's (supermarket) and buy your food for you stay.
Location: The beach is just a 3 minute walk away and is not very crowded. Also, there is a bike/walking path that takes you all the way to Belmont Park. The rental is located in a very quiet neighborhood compared to Mission Beach.
The owners: The owners live in the apartment above the rental. They are very nice and respect your privacy. In fact, we only saw the once and that's shortly after we arrived. They stopped by to highlight the rental's features and to explain how to use the super hi-tech washing machine (yes, you will need the explanation).
Must dos: While at Pacifc Beach, if you don't do anything else eat breakfast at Kono's Cafe (it's right across the street from Crystal Pier)! It has the best breakfast and coffee!
Need to know: (A/C) The rental does not have a/C because it's not needed. The air passing over the ocean is more than enough to properly cool the rental. All you have to do is turn on the ceiling fans and slightly open the windows. That's the good part about San Diego. The weather is very moderate. Conclusion: All in all, it was a great experience that was worth every penny.

When we arrived, the owners Completed the renovation. We benefited of a brand new location. Everything is provided for the convenience of the traveller.
From the barbecue on the terrace and the Bicycle cruisers, to the fully equipped kitchen.there is even a shower outside to avoid bringing inside some sand from the nearest beach. There is two HD wide screen cable tv, and an Internet connection.
The owners (Caroline & James) Are very attentive to their tenants.
I will return without hesitation, and I frankly Recommend to my friends to go.
Thanks to Nancy, Caroline and James thanks to which we've spend wonderful holidays.
