The master bedroom is located on the ground level with a full bathroom with bath tub/shower. It has a queen sized bed and cable television. Upstairs is another bedroom with a queen sized bed and a third bedroom with two twin beds. The bathroom between th...ese two bedrooms is full-sized with tub/shower. There is also a queen-sized sofa bed in the living room for additional sleeping arrangements.
It has a double garage. The washer and dryer take up some of the parking space but it will fit 2 small cars or 1 larger SUV. Please call us for measurements if you have any questions about the size.

Mission Bay is located just 40 steps from the house. There is a white sandy beach and a nice boardwalk for walking, biking, and rollerblading.

There are may wonderful restaurants for breakfast, lunch, and dinner within walking distance! This lovely beach house will accommodate up to eight guests and is available year round as a vacation rental.

We received exceptional customer service and staff were very responsive. The home was nicely appointed Nd had all the items as promised in the add...missed a dishwasher but we used paper plates so it helped...great location between the bay and the ocean...
Good location to access a variety of activities.

The house was clean and reasonably maintained. While not a large home, it suited our party very well for this stay. For this vacation, the location was ideal. Everyone was in reasonable proximity to our chosen activities, and being close to two beaches was handy for morning runs or evening walks. We did make use of the provided beach gear, and appreciated the bicycle area of the garage.
The only minor points we had were that the drain plug in the main floor bathroom needed some TLC. The BBQ refused to heat properly the second time we used it...not sure why, it didn't seem to be a supply issue.
Overall the detractors were minor, and the house was a welcome part of our experience in the area.

Location of the house was very convenient. Ocean beach was beautiful. Lots of restaurants and shops in area. House itself was clean and comfortable. Kitchen and eating area were small. Kitchen supplies such as pots and pans and sharp knives needs to be updated. Enough appliances and well functioning.
Really, no complaints as the house worked great for our group and was clean and comfortable.

Housing retreat was clean; location was excellent. Amenities were satisifactory. Instruction sheet listed games in bottom drawer in twin bedroom. There were none available. Would like a bigger livingroom/dining room area. Check in/out was easy. Phone assistance was nice.

The service was great. We loved the codes that allowed us access to the house. The house was spotless and very welcoming. We only walked about one half of a block to two different beaches. Wonderful Location!
We will be using Nancy's Rental agency for all of our visits. Excellent, they are very organized!

Nice house, clean, customer service responded immediately to our one concern. Only point is that the grill needs to have some parts replaced, but other than that, it was a nice place at a great price.
great little spot

It's in a good location with lots of restaurants and bars anf just across the street from the beach. Parking anywhere is tough but, the condo has enough room for 2 cars or one truck. The place had everything you would need for the beach.Nice and clean too. thx
We loved being near the beach!
Left on 10/05/2013 for a stay in September 2013 | Karen
We had a great stay at this rental! It was very close to the Mission Beach and to the Pacific Ocean which we visited everyday! It was so nice that we didn't have to drive there because parking spaces are at a premium.
The one down side was that it is very noisy with trash trucks coming and going everyday. There was also someone running a tile saw every weekday which was noisy. We had grandchildren who needed to take naps so this made it difficult.
A service man showed up twice to meet needs that we had so we appreciated that.
Overall, it was a nice place to stay and we were glad we chose this place.
Excellent Bay & Beach Stay
Left on 08/31/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | JD
We loved the location - close to the bay and beach!
Clean, well-kept interior that was well-equipped for all our needs, including a toddler.
The one minus is the poorly protected heater in the hallway. Our 1 1/2 year old opened the door to the open flame within seconds and burned his finger - complete with a sore blister! This door needs to be screwed on so that little children cannot access it!

Loved the outdoor patio privacy. Easy check in and check out. Very clean everything was there that we needed for a family vacation. Easy access to the beach and bay. Only thing missing was the board games we did not locate any games. Also a huge plus was having a washer and dryer. Already planning next years vacation. Maybe next year we can get a King Size Bed in the Master Room.
Great location for walking to all the fun

I liked the ease of managing the reservations, directions and the stay itself. The home was a bit smaller than I had expected but it was clean and well-prepared for us. It was great to be close to the boardwalk, the bay side and the ocean side. I wish we had not rented a car. Didn't need it once we got to the house and parking was an issue.
Everything we needed
Left on 05/24/2013 for a stay in May 2013 | Dana
We were very happy with our stay at Donna's Beach Retreat. The beds were comfortable and everything we might need was there - down to coffee filters and a cooler! It is located in a excellent area between mission beach and mission bay. I would describe the accomodations as very nice, but, not luxury. Since there are higher end type accomodations in that area - this is good to know before booking.
also, the 'small' parking spot is for a very small car - a typical 4 door sedan will not fit in it - another detail good to know when booking - but, was not a big problem for us - since we used that spot for visitors - and just left the garage door open.
Perfect location for our stay.

We were in San Diego to attend a wedding at the Mission Beach Women's Club and this location was ideal for us. We were able to walk to the reception and then in the other direction for the after party. Perfect placement between the Bay and the Ocean with an easy walk to either. We were six adults (husband, myself, daughter, son and daughter-in-law) and the beds worked fine for us. Only negative is not enough comfortable seating in the living room for more than three or four adults. Reservation process was uncomplicated and representatives on the phone were friendly and helpful.
Wonderful Location, Great for families

We recently stayed at Donna's Beach Retreat and couldn't of been happier! The Nancy's Vacation Rental team was incredibly helpful with any question we had and made the whole process very easy.
The home is in a great location, we were able to walk to the Bay and to the Ocean in under five minutes with our boys and could drive to any of the major attractions in about 20 minutes. There are also multiple really good restaurants within just a block or two (Mission, Olive's Cafe, Saska, Rosaria's Pizza, etc).
We had rented a minivan which fit in the garage at a slight angle, which actually made it easier to get on the road again for our next adventure!
When we were "at home," we were able to sit peacefully in the backyard space due to the high fences and great tree coverage- very relaxing after a day out and about. We will definitely be back next time we are in San Diego!
Left on 02/12/2013 for a stay in January 2013 | Ev
This was a great little place, close to the beach and other San Diego attractions. We appreciated the maps and area information that was emailed before our trip. The management was very accommodating and returned a phone call before office hours. (We were asking if they had some sand toys for our kids. Yes! and they brought them right over.) The house was perfect for our family of 5. It was nice to have shampoo and laundry detergent provided. We loved having a garage and the kids loved the beach/ocean themed decor. There was one stove burner that didn't seem to work, but everything else was in perfect order and we'd rent there again in a heartbeat!

Very comfortable and convenient to the beach and for all we wanted to do. Clean beds, towels and everything was good. To make it even better as a courtesy I would recommend you get new pots and pans and at least provide sugar and salt.
Would go with Nancy's again
Multi-Family Bay Vacation
Left on 09/19/2012 for a stay in August 2012 | Jennifer
We stayed in this rental for 5 nights. Being honest, we had issues. However, Nancy and her employees were very helpful and responsive to everything. It was in a great location. We had 3 kids under 4 with us, so it was perfect to have the bay so close. Within a minute we were there dipping our toes in the water. The beach was almost the same distance, but you have to cross a street...so it took about 3 minutes walking. Still so close.
Despite our issues, I have been assured by Nancy that the house has been updated completely with all new electrical circuits, brand new DVD player, and all the bikes are in perfect working condition.
The property was very clean and fairly spacious. We had 7 in our party. The outside patio is great to BBQ on and relax in the great San Diego weather.
Anything we needed for cooking was available for use. We even baked a birthday cake.
I would recommend this property, but more importantly (I think) I would recommend Nancy and her team. They were very accommodating, easy to work with, responsive, and truly value customer satisfaction.
In my future travels to SD, I will definitely look at their properties.
I've had worse.
Left on 04/30/2012 for a stay in April 2012 | Seattle Family
Overall, for the price not bad but barely not bad and that mainly because of the price and location. That said, the master bedroom comforter had hair on it (not ours), the pillows cases had old stains and the carpet was obviously not clean, not stained but clearly they don't shampoo after each group of visitors. The master bedroom is downstairs and the living room is directly above it so you can hear ever step people are making from uptop. And oh, the garbage trucks that pick up trash very early can be heard early in the morning so be prepared.
Would go again

Thanksgiving 2011 was wonderful @ Donna's!
Left on 12/23/2011 for a stay in November 2011 | Alisa
Once again Nancy's Vacation Rentals provided us with clean, comfortable, close to bay and beach housing.
Donna's was great because we had grandma and grandpa downstairs with their own bathroom and the rest of the gang upstairs with their own bathroom. The garage fit my daughter's minivan nicely on the diagonal which was terrific because beach parking is very limited.
We were within a block of the bay and about the same distance over to the ocean. The bicycles provided lots of exercise and adventures for all of us. There is a bike shop about a block north where I rented a child hauler to go behind a bike and the kids loved riding in it.
The kitchen is small but equipped very well with pots, pans, blender, dishes, glasses and lots of kitchen towels for drying dishes.
My grandchildren loved looking out the windows to watch buses, trucks and cars go up and down Mission Blvd. There is some noise associated with the garbage truck that rumbles up the alley but if you are a kid it doesn't come often enough.
It would be nice to have a couple of folding chairs for additional seating.
Having a washer and dryer in the garage was terrific with little kids there was always laundry.
This beach retreat has it all.

We loved the house, the neighborhood was nice, close to the beach and shopping. A lot of extras were provided. We loved the master suite down with its own bath for privacy. Our only complaints were the carpeting throughout was very dirty. We took our shoes off on arrival and soon put them back on. We also came home and found three rather rude messages from the owner of the company on our answering machine. There was a minor glich during our stay, but it was solved quickly. Evidently she was more disturbed about it than we were. All in all, it was a nice place and we would reccommend it to our friends.

Traveling with 3 not-so-little kids, it was great to have a proper bed for each of them. Also, 3 Tv's gave versatility to those down times. The kitchen was very well equipped and good to be able to make free local calls. Nice private courtyard and close to both ocean and bay. We were very happy with this property!

The house is located in a very noisy area. It is located right on Mission Blvd. Sirens, late night parties. No tv in queen upstairs bedroom. Sink in downstairs bath needs attention. Bikes have wobbly wheels, need to be serviced. It was acceptable, but not a great value for the money.
Family beach Vacation
Las Vegas, NV
Great beach condo steps from the beach
Left on 07/18/2011 for a stay in June 2011 | Family beach Vacation
My family and I (wife, mother-in-law, and 2 boys, 4 and 6) had the best time in this vacation rental. We found the condo very clean and it met every one of our needs. The garage fit our 2006 minivan perfectly. We had no problem with parking, witch is a problem on the beach. We spent our days at Legoland and SeaWorld then every eving on the beach relaxing. The provided beach chairs were a big help. One of the best vacations yet. We hope to come back next year.
Nice, quiet place by the beach
Left on 07/14/2011 for a stay in May 2011 | Mike
Overall I was happy with this vacation rental and with Nancy's Vacation Rentals. It was a nice clean place in a great location. It has a two car garage, but large Suv's will not fit and parking was an issue for us. The beach was great and the house has bikes and beach chairs, which we were grateful for.
Overall, the main things that bothered me were very small items, but several of them. I went with my wife, four children, and her brother. For a three bedroom house there was not much living space. The kitchen was small but adequate, but the table only seated about five comfortably and there was only one couch in the living room. The kitchen was lacking in some really basic items that I would expect in a rental in that price range, like enough silverware for the amount of people that are allowed to stay there and utensils like a knife for cutting watermelon and a can opener. Lastly, other rentals we've stayed at in the area had a good selection of staples, like condiments in the fridge and flour and sugar. This house had none of those, and we spent a pretty fair amount of money at the grocery store buying items that we had expected to be there already like ketchup and ranch dressing. I think it added about $100 to our trip to buy these things that we figured would already be there.
Overall, it was a good place in a great location, but I would not recommend it for more than about 6 people. It has the space of the average two bedroom house in the area.

As always when rent through Nancy's Vacation Rentals everything went smoothly. The location of this apartment is excellent, easy access to the beach or the bay. Extra benefit of being really close to great restaurants and even walking distance to Ralph's and Crystal Pier. The beds were comfy and it was nice to have the master suite on a separate floor for privacy. The only drawback is that there is not a dishwasher at this apartment. So if you don't like to do dishes, you might want to consider that.

The location was as expected. The garage does not accomodate two cars very easily at all. The house has poor plumbing and the house also does not have a dishwasher, garbage disposal or ice maker. All things you would expect from a $2000 plus weekly vacation rental. The listing likely did not include those items and I just expected it. Nancy and her staff were great. I would use them again, but would not go to Donna's because of the lack of basic things. Plumbing made using one bathroom inside of the master suite difficult for the majority of the trip. Not Nancy's fault. When we did call the plumber came immediately but did not fix the problem. Not real excited to have repair people given access to house when not there. Location was fantastic, bikes were great. Certainly not as roomy as depicted in photos.Live and learn.

My family and I had a great time here. It was a great location to both the beach and the bay. The house had almost everything we needed. The only thing I was disappointed to find missing was a dishwasher. To have a house that sleeps 6 or more I feel it is definitely needed. Also, due to the great location, it was pretty loud at night and in the morning there seems to be a garbage truck that goes by every morning. Last year we stayed at Brian's Felspar apartments where you provide the white noise machines. I feel the machines would also be a nice addition to this property. Overall though my family and I were very happy and had a great time. This is my second time renting through your company and I definitely plan on using you again. Thank you!

Shampoo, Q tips, numerous towels, and blow dryers were also available. The washer and dryer were very convenient and the house was in the perfect location. All the beds were very comfortable as well. The patio was awesome and the privacy was enjoyable. The only drawback was that our SUV did no fit in the garage. Otherwise, it was a great vacation rental.

The house was well located and very nice, however because of the location it was very noisey with street traffic and garbage collection. For a place for eight, the furniture is insufficient - there are only three sofa spots and one chair downstairs. Should be one easy chair upstairs next to the sofa.
Our summer vacation
Left on 06/30/2010 for a stay in June 2010 | Shawna
Opon arrival we were given the incorrect door code. After making serveral panic calls to all the phone #s we had received at 10:00pm. As I was picturing sleeping in the car with the family, my husband called the office and someone had answered. Our night was saved! A few days later the kids wanted to ride the bikes but the code was incorrect also, we didn't call for that code. I feel that the house could have been cleaner, dirty hand prints on the back of the doors, dirty rug by the front door etc. There also seems to be some eletrical issues, light flickering & televisions turning off. We have stayed at Nancys Vacation Rentals before and never had these problems. I feel that a few items just need to be corrected. We would rent from them again, see you next year.

less than we expected
Left on 06/24/2010 for a stay in June 2010 | average vacationers
The location was excellent. The layout of the house was nice. We were disappointed with a few things: Upon our arrival, it took two hours to enter the house because the key pad to the garage wasn't working-and it continued not to work well, always requiring several attempts before it responded. the garage was apparently "remodeled" and parking inside did not allow the garage door to be closed. The garbage disposal was "broken" before we arrived, was unusable for our stay, and smelled the entire week. The floors were not clean.
