“Thoroughly enjoyed this property because of it's comfort and proximity to the beach.”
This was a wonderful accommodation. The property is close to dining, beach and shops along the boardwalk. The house was clean and comfortable with all the amenities you could ask for including beach chairs, towels and patio furniture. The fully furnished kitchen was more than adequate. We had a few questions and the rental office was prompt and courteous in meeting all our needs. Thanks for a wonderful 5 days.
“Convenient to beach and boardwalk”
We stayed here for a month while visiting family and found it comfortable and easy to get to the beach, boardwalk and grocery stores. Nice patio in front with sunset views. The galley kitchen is adequate for only one person at a time to cook, and the eating area is limited. The kitchen was reasonably supplied, though I bought more silverware and a few other items. The second bedroom is rather small with a double bed. Laundry is accessed from the back patio. The big plus of this unit is the location and the partial ocean view from the front window. It was also very clean, and the management was promptly responsive to an issue with the refrigerator. Garage parking space proved valuable on weekends. Lots of surfers...fun to watch!
Clean, nice rental. Close walk to boardwalk and beach. Would definitely stay again.
“Great location, could use some improvements though”
First of all, this property does not have central air conditioning as advertised. That was disappointing because that was one of the main reasons we chose this property. Also, we expected more amenities considering the high price that we paid. (Coffee, body lotion, etc.). We have stayed in other Vrbo properties that cost less but had generously stocked kitchens. However, the location was great; very close to the beach. Also, having a garage to use was wonderful because parking in all of San Diego is atrocious! The sand toys and boogie board were great for our son, and the beach chairs were great for us. Be aware that the bikes are for adults--they were too big for our 9 year old. The front patio was great. You get a "peek" of the ocean from there and can hear the waves crashing. A great place for dining. Overall, it provided an OK house (for the price) with a great location.
Response from the manager This guest must have mixed up this house with another one, easy to do when you are looking and comparing so many. We have never advertised this house as having AC. AC is very rare in the San Diego beach area and out of our 51 units, only 5 have AC, two condos with central air, another one only in the lvrm and another two only in the upstairs master bedroom. We are very aware of which five have AC and we state that very prominently in the headline. This one does not mention AC anywhere. None of our owners provide children's bikes in any of our rentals because it's too much liability and a proper fitting helmet is required for anyone under 18. You can easily rent children's bikes many places around the beach area and they fit them with the required helmets. Since this very popular house rents really well so that tells me the price is fair and competitive. If the calendar is empty, we lower the price. The customers are the ones that drive the rates in this day of internet comparative shopping and we are very sensitive to occupancy rate feedback. Nancy
“Tight spaces and bad odors. The location and outdoor patio are”
I didn't expect a five star resort but I expected better than this. When we first walked in the gross, filthy smell of the carpet set the tone for the month. We had to buy febreze and air fresheners to try to disguise the smell. And when the odor is that bad you know the carpet is dirty so it makes it very uncomfortable to walk around and not feel gross. Simple inexpensive things like the bath mats and shower curtains were old and stained so again felt dirty. We couldn't even use the bath mats. The space is small and no way appropriate for six people. Maybe three people can comfortably sit in the living room to watch tv. The master bedroom is underneath the deck of the top unit. There is no padding under the deck furniture which is right overhead so if you are trying to sleep and someone above moves the furniture or enjoys the space you will hear the dragging of chairs. It was especially difficult trying to nap our two year old. I had to ask the people upstairs to stop moving the chairs and it's not their fault. Another issue is the beach chairs and bikes. While having the option to use them is great but they are old and rusty so you wouldn't want to use them anyway. There is not enough hot water so if someone is doing laundry or showering in one bathroom or the other unit expect a cold shower. Also, if you are staying long term like we did there is not much storage in the fridge because you can't open the drawers bc the door is too close to the wall. The service from the rental company was good. I just wish they inspected the properties better and made some recommendations to make this unit cleaner. The carpets should absolutely be ripped up. It takes a lot to make them smell that bad and the entire month we were disgusted and uncomfortable which does not make for a fun vacation. If I had known I would have not stayed there. It was not a cheap rental.
“Great location and nice condo”
Nancy's runs a tight ship, they kept us informed with clear concise email as our trip approached. At check in everything was in order and clean. Overall I'd rate the condo an 8 out of 10. Great patio's out front and in back. It would get a 10 if they replaced the carpet and the sleeper sofa is ready to be replaced with a non-vinyl version.
“Great location, excellent service.”
The service was excellent - we had to call to ask a question, change out the high chair, and get a fan, and the prompt response and follow up were fantastic. The instructions we got prior to our arrival were extremely detailed and that is much appreciated when traveling. We love the location. We stayed upstairs the year before and chose to stay on the main floor this year because it has 2 bedrooms. It has everything we need for a family of 4. The only issue we would have is the carpet is due for a major clean or change - it is showing the effects of many many rentals, so was pretty dirty. This is mostly a concern for us specifically because we have a 1 year old who crawls as well as a young child who likes to play and lie on the floor. As well, the kitchen could use a bit of replenishment in terms of pans, utensils etc. So, we'd definitely rent from Nancy's again, but may look at some of the other properties for next year in the same area, because we love Mission Beach and the proximity to the water.
We enjoyed our stay. The location was great, place was clean and comfortable. My in-laws stayed in upstairs unit and it was perfect. Only complaint is the strange smell that we couldn't figure out. Guest services was very quick about small issues like light bulbs and how to use the TV. We would stay again if they figure out the smell.
We stayed in the two bedroom downstairs unit.The pictures are very accurate. This is a nice place. Working with the agents from Nancy's was easy and they are very professional and responsive.Our favorite place to enjoy morning coffee and happy hour was the front patio.There is distant view of the ocean and sunset. The location is excellent, just short walk to the beach,and many restaurants and grocery stores. We cooked most nights,and the barbecue is a newer unit that works great.The unit was well stocked with the basics.We rode the bikes for trips to the coffee shop,(Java Cafe was our favorite),store, Ocean Beach, La Jolla (4 scenic miles). The bikes are just ok. I would recommend this place if you're looking for a nice place with a local feeling.
“What an awesome and fun location, just not as clean as we would”
We loved the location of this rental. The house was well furnished and well appointed with fun and appropriate amenities. The cleanliness of the floors left much to be desired. I specifically requested a clean location because of my infant-crawler. The kitchen floor was dirty, and the carpet was worn. The bathroom floors still had hair and the bath mats were stained from the previous stay. But we dealt with it. We cleaned the floors and limited our child to areas where blankets covered the floors. Otherwise, the house was great, and I would recommend a stay in this house because the location was awesome!! Beware of the homeless dude living in the alley where you go to park in the garage.
