                                My husband and I just returned from a week stay at this fabulous rental. I totally agree with what the other reviewers said about the property being even more spectacular in person. It was nice to open the windows and enjoy the ocean breeze nightly. You have the bay on one side; the beach on the other. I enjoyed morning runs on the beach walk that ends at the pier. So many restaurants are close by and a number are within walking distance. Laurel made the arrangements easy and Lorraine was there to greet us and answer any questions about the property we had. We look forward to renting again.

                                Our family of four had an absolutely wonderful time at this condo. It is beautifully furnished and the "beach extras" of the bikes and boogie boards made the trip even more special. The rooftop deck has a partial ocean view--we grilled out every night---no restaurant could beat it! Our two kids are 14 and 15 and they had a blast biking around, taking the ferry to Balboa Island, getting shakes at Ruby's on the pier, and going to the beach which is a very quick walk. Both of our smaller SUV cars fit in the garage and we didn't use them for the week. We biked to the grocery store (bring a backpack)! Laurel and Lorraine were very helpful---thank you both! Very special family memories--we hope to return!!

                                This property far exceeded our expectations. It was closer to the beach than expected and was equipped with absolutely everything we could have hoped for. It was exactly as described and shown in the pictures. The rooftop deck was amazing along with the views it provided. It was immaculately clean and incredibly comfortable. From the towels to the linens to the blankets to the furniture...absolutely top notch! It is situated on a quiet street about halfway between the Newport and Balboa piers. Everything you would want to do or need to get is within walking distance. We have 2 children 11 and 9 who wanted to be at the beach most days. Using the wagon and beach supplies provided, we left the house and were set up sitting under umbrellas and in chairs in less than 5 mins.The manager of this property couldn't have been more accommodating and provided lots of helpful hints about the area. I'm telling you, it doesn't get any better than this property. We will most definitely be back. I would highly recommend this Condo to everyone. Whether you are young or old. Single or married. Kids or no kids. It is PERFECT! I am more than grateful to have found it!

                                I'm always a bit nervous renting properties on-line for the first time, but my whole family agreed this was a home run. The owner was more than reasonable letting us rent a partial week. The communications were prompt and clear, and our deposit returned quickly after our stay. The property manager was a joy to work with and really went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. The home itself is extremely well kept, and has all kinds of nice extras to make a beach stay pleasant. Beach gear, bikes, chairs, beach toys, etc. The garage parking is a huge plus! Trust me on this one. I agree with the previous comments that the location is actually better than some houses that are closer. You are out the door and laying your towels on the beach in three minutes. You are also pretty much halfway between the two big municipal parking areas at Newport and Balboa piers. The beach seems less busy there, but those areas remain very accessible if you want to eat, shop, etc. If we go back for another California beach vacation, I can't imagine a better place to stay.

                                “Best vacation ever!” - This was a daily cheer from my 6 and 7 year-olds over 7 days of beach and family vacation bliss in this Newport Beach vacation rental. We got lucky when we booked this place - the extent to which we did not fully understand until we spent some time there. The location is perfectly located in a quieter part of the Balboa peninsula - a couple of blocks is far enough away from the traveling frat parties that can exist on the beach front itself - yet close enough that the walk to the sand is easy and short. The beach is great and good for our kids to safely play in the surf while adults lounge, boogie board or swim. The location provides easy access to both piers, the funzone, duffy boat rentals, the balboa ferry and shopping. The rooftop patio is the jewel of this property and is as pictured. Most evenings were spent having dinner here while the sun set to the sound of the waves in the background. The garage gives you ample room to park you car and maintain your beach gear (the owner provides chairs, beach toys, towels, boogie boards, cruisers and even a wagon) as well as give you a place to shed sand and sandy clothes before entering into the house. The living/bedroom/bathroom and kitchen areas are all comfortable, clean and with upgrades all around. The ridiculously comfy couch will be missed. Laurel the owner and Lorraine the property manager made the arrival flawless and their attention to making sure our stay was a good one reinforced why you would want to rent directly from an owner. We will return - doubt any other property in this price range would come close to matching the quality and location.

                                This is a wonderfully comfortable, convenient and quiet unit. It was immaculately clean, and looked just as it's portrayed in the listing photos. It's only a block from the beach, but on a peaceful street. We walked to the Fun Zone (1.1 mile, I believe) for the Parade of Lights, to restaurants, and, of course, to the sand. We were particularly happy to have the convenience of the garage on the night of the boat parade, as street parking would have been a challenge. On other days, our visitors had no trouble parking in front or very near the unit. The kitchen is well-equipped, and had everything we needed to make Christmas brunch and evening supper. Laurel made it easy to secure the reservation, and Lorraine is a delightful and helpful proeprty manager. This would be my choice for any future visit to the Balboa/Newport Beach area.

                                Thanks for a wonderful time! The home was just as described: very warm, modern, well decorated and clean. The owner and property manager went the extra mile to ensure we had an enjoyable stay. They also took extra time to give advice on things to do and see in the area. The private balcony was a favorite and provided some great family memories. Thanks again ?

                                My family stayed at this great condo the last week of June, it is very nice with all high end furnishings and all the comforts of home. It is in a quiet part of town so you won't get the late night partiers outside your windows at all hours of the night. It has a beautiful rooftop deck that we used constantly which has a gas grill, refridgerater with ice maker and a sink. It was great for drinking morning coffee or eating lunch, or cooking dinner. One block from the beach and tennis courts. We used the bicycles everday. We have rented many places before, but this one is at the top of the list, we had a very memmorable vacation here.

                                This rental provided a great getaway for us. The beach is a short walk, the bay and paddle board rentals are a block away. All amenities are nearby. It was perfect to be just back from the boardwalk as it was quiet. The rooftop deck is awesome. It was great for sunning, grilling and dining. we brought our own bikes but there are cruisers available as well as all the beach toys. The owner and manager were very helpful and the property is well maintained and comfortable. This property exceeded our expectations!

We prepared ourselves thinking often pictures on the internet do not accurately depict scale, current conditions, etc. The house is immaculate and newly renovated. The private roof deck is everything we expected and more. We spent a lot of time up there. The property is also a block and half from the beach. We were three adults and two children (ages 4 and 7) and every beach toy the boys could possibly have wanted was available for our use. Boogie boards, towels, nice beach chairs, shovels, soccer balls, etc. A big wagon is available to cart all the beach stuff to the ocean (or tired kids on the way home). Two cruising bikes also available. We rented an electric boat and tooled around the bay one day, went on a sea lion/celebrity house cruise another day, bummed around the beach several days. Incredible surfing and boogie boarding. Restaurants within walking distance (1 mile). Highly recommend!

                                Recommended for: Romantic getaway, families with teenagers, families with young children, sightseeing, adventure seekers, girls getaway.
