Below you will find details about our 1 bed/ 1 bath home, Joey’s Riviera Villa in Pacific Beach.

This spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished condo sleeps up to 4. It features a king bed in the bedroom, and a comfortable queen size murphy bed that folds down from the wall. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need for dining in. The kitchen has granite countertops, real wood cabinets and stainless steel appliances. The living room has a plush carpet, gas fireplace, large flat screen TV and an unbeatable view. The bathroom has dual sinks and a large walk in shower. There is a coin operated laundry room about 30 feet down the hall. 

The Riviera Villas are situated on the quieter East side of beautiful Sail Bay (the loveliest part of Mission Bay)! You will have a magnificent view of the sunsets with the activities of the bay in the foreground; kiteboarders, sailboats, water skiers, catamarans, etc. Yet, you are only 12 minutes from San Diego's bustling downtown historic Gaslamp area with its fine dining, 1.5 miles from SeaWorld, and within 15 minutes from the lovely Balboa Park with the famous San Diego Zoo. So, you can have it all!

We can provide an air conditioning unit for an additional fee. Please contact us to reserve the inventory.

Enjoy your coffee on your private balcony as you watch the boardwalk come alive. Right below people are on the boardwalk riding bikes, skating, jogging, and just strolling at leisure. Take a stroll or ride our two provided beach cruiser bikes around the bay and if you like, cross over to Mission Beach with its wide boardwalk to watch the surfers or catch a glimpse of the green flash at sunset.

Vacation rentals in San Diego are for the most part, second homes for the owners. Therefore, some furniture or decor may differ from what is pictured because the owners needed or wanted to replace something. Professional photos are expensive and we can not re-photograph the rental every time something is changed but we do maintain the listing content with any notable furnishing changes especially related to sleeping arrangements. (*Please note: We do not give refunds because a piece of furniture or artwork has changed)

*NOTE: This home is in a residential neighborhood and, as such, is a NOISE SENSITIVE property. Respect must be shown for the property and neighbors at all times.

Violation of these rules MAY result in immediate eviction from the property per your rental agreement, and/or fines from the San Diego Police. Please review your rental agreement for complete details and rules about your home!

It is important for you to read all the details about your property. We highlight everything you need to know about your vacation rental in our listing, through emails, some home manuals, in-home signage and phone correspondence. We want our guests to feel prepared, informed and at ease while staying with us. We are always available if you have questions!

Angelina was excellent in helping us with Early entry and late checkout. Very accommodating and friendly as well as patient working with us.
Excellent. 3rd time staying with Nancy's Vacation Rentals and will definitely stay again with Nancy. We come every year to see our son and will continue to use their services. 3888 Riviera is an outstanding location being on Sail Bay and within walking distance of the boardwalk and activities. The bay is so peaceful and with the active view it has you never get bored.

Nancy is very responsive and helpful - thanks!!
Loved Joey's Riviera - I agree Nancy, the kitchen cabinets need replacing, good idea! And another water jug, or a Brita jug would be nice - fyi. The MBR bed was great and the bathroom has been wonderfully done. I would encourage you to permanently fix/attach the AC unit, as a lot of sound enters through. Also, installing room darkening blinds in the MBR would be helpful since the lights next door stay on all night, and the room is well "lit" at night..... otherwise, it was a great property! We will see you again!

They have always been a pleasure to work with
We have stayed in other units within this complex and this unit needs some TLC when it comes to the Murphy bed mattress and the couch and pillows. There are some other small issues with flooring and cabinets that need to be addressed, but overall another nice unit to stay in and the staff is great to work with. NVR is by far one of the best and easiest sites to rent from. Love it a we will return.

Extremely cooperative and helpful, after a little snafu on Sunday when the phone lines seemed to be caught in a non-responsive loop. My daughter discussed this was the rep who was going to investigate.
