Crystal Cove house description
PLEASE READ: Accepting Monthly/Long Term Rentals from Dec 15th - June 1st and Summer 2014.
This luxury home in Newport Beach is something of a celebrity—you can actually glimpse our backyard in the opening credits of the hit show The O.C. Joking aside, this house has everything you could want in a Newport Beach vacation rental: ocean views, close proximity to the beach and Disneyland, a spacious backyard with a private hot tub and fire pit . . . the list goes on and on.
(Before we jump into details, let me point out that you can view additional photos of the house by clicking on the tab to the left. We also have more pictures on our Facebook page, which you can access via the link at the bottom of this description.)
This one-story beauty boasts four bedrooms—three with king-size beds, and two with in-suite bathrooms. It’s the perfect size for groups or large families. The master bedroom is especially luxurious, featuring his-and-her sinks, a Jacuzzi tub, and French doors that offer views of the ocean and access to the private backyard. The master bedroom, like most of the house, is decorated in calming, neutral colors that invite you to kick back and relax.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare gourmet meals, including a massive refrigerator, two ovens, and a six-burner stove, as well as dinnerware for up to 10 people. If you need to pick up groceries, Trader Joe’s is just a short walk away. A popular part of the house is the recreation room, which features a handmade bar and a pool table. You can play a little pool and then lounge around, listening to music while enjoying the ocean views.
When you’re ready to head outside, the spacious backyard welcomes you to bask in the California sunshine. We have plenty of seating, including two swings and a two tables that seat 10. At the end of the day, there’s nothing better than hopping into the jacuzzi, which fits up to eight people. We also have a grill and fire pit, where your kids will love roasting marshmallows as the sun sets over the Pacific Ocean.
On top of all this, our amenities include:
• Satellite TV and 47-to-55-inch HDTVs in every bedroom. The two main rooms also have DVRs.
• A 47-inch HDTV with Wi-Fi in the recreation room, which also has a 5.1 surround sound system and French doors that open into the backyard.
• A 55-inch HDTV with Wi-Fi in the living room, along with a Wii, a 7.1 surround sound system, a DVD player, and a fireplace.
• A private gym with a treadmill, assorted weights, cables, and a 42-inch satellite TV.
• Four beach chairs, a beach umbrella, two boogie boards, lots of beach towels, and a small cooler for your beach outings. Just be sure to hose yourself down of sand in the courtyard before entering in the house!
• High-speed Internet throughout the house, with an Apple router and extender.
• A small hookah with supplies. (We have no problems with guests who smoke—just make sure you do it outside. Absolutely no smoking is permitted inside the house.)
• Complimentary access to the community center, which has an Olympic-sized pool, a children’s pool, a jacuzzi, a barbecue grill and kitchen area, tennis courts, basketball courts, and a gym. The neighborhood also has several playgrounds, one of which offers beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean from on top of a hill.
• Optional maid service. I can arrange for my cleaning company (the one I’ve been using for over 20 years) to keep the house spotless while you are out and about. An additional fee will apply.
In terms of location, this vacation rental couldn’t be better situated. Crystal Cove State Beach is within walking distance. With its swaying palm trees, parks, and community center, our gated community feels almost like a resort.
A little further from the house, you’ll find Laguna Beach (7 minutes away), Corona del Mar (7 minutes), and Newport Beach (15 minutes). We also have a very nice shopping center five minutes from the house by foot. Two of the best restaurants in Orange County—Javier’s Newport Coast and Mastro’s—are also within walking distance. If you’re looking for breakfast, I highly recommend Pacific Whey, Shake Shack, or Beachcomber Café. Both are less than a 10-minute walk away. For golfers, there are numerous options, including Pelican Hill, which is just a three-minute drive from the vacation rental.
Ready to book? Make sure you contact us today, as this vacation rental is sure to go fast. We respond to all inquiries promptly. The monthly rate for this home ranges from $16,995 to $23,995 depending on the season and the length of your lease.

I stayed for two months in this property with my family, and it was an amazing stay. The community is wonderful and friendly. I loved how secure the place is with the gated community. The property itself is wonderful and has a beautiful view of the ocean, a lot of great memories were created during the day and night, especially when we all gather around the fire pit and have cozy conversations, and warm tea. The house was fully equipped with all the things that u need and want. As renters with a different cultural background, we felt right at home, all thanks to Ali and Sean. I would recommend this property to any family interested in spending quality time with a beautiful view of newport's coast, with a 5 min drive to all places of interest close by. Thank you Ali and Sean for giving us the opportunity to stay in this house, we will always remember it, and we will always keep you in mind when we come to Newport. Respectfully,

Owner response: Turki and his friends and family were excellent guests! They stayed for 2 months at my home in Newport Coast and were some of the best long-term renters we've ever had with little to no issues at the home. The one exception being the time the surround sound had an issue in the living room. I was able to have it fixed within a day. He was very friendly and always communicated with me via text or phone calls. I was very comfortable with Turki as he called me when it was necessary or he had a question. I was always more than willing and happy to help him out. You want your renter to pay on time, keep your home in good shape, and not disturb the neighbors. Turki and his guests did all that very well and I hope to one day host him again.

We just spent a wonderful 8 days at this fantastic Crystal Cove location. The outdoor patio and views were just awesome...and truly great sunset views around a warm fire pit. My husband and I were there with our 6 year old daughter, nanny and a friend. Our daughter LOVED the patio, learned how to play pool,(yes, there is a big pool table!) walked to Crystal Cove beach each day to explore the tide pools and loved the access to the gorgeous club at the top of the neighborhood that had a 50 meter pool HEATED, cabanas, hot tub, work out facilities. We also walked to Trader Joe's, Mastro's Steak House, Javiars...no car needed! If you want to hang out and watch TV, this home has state of the art systems and all the channels to go with it. The owner of the home, who lives nearby was beyond hospitable and helpful. In fact, he even left a "Good-Bye Basket" the nigt before we left full of goodies in case we had not time to stop before heading back to Chicago. Our family has rented 3 different Crystal Cove homes over the past 2 years and this is our favorite....the views, the patio (friendly for young children), the proximity to beach, shopping...all awesome. Yes, we would defintely rent this home again...I'd recommend it for a family or for couples as there is plenty of privacy. Big thumbs up.

This is an amazing property. Once we got to the house, we never left! The house has everything you could wish for (full kitchen, pool table, large backyard area with bbq and jacuzzi, comfortable rooms, lots of bathrooms, lots of hanging out areas). We had a large group in the house but it is probably more comfortable for a smaller group of people. It is very close to the ocean and has amazing views in the afternoon, evening... and the host is an awesome guy!

Owner response: Ana and her party were wonderful guests! They came in a group of 12-14 for a corporate retreat of sorts. The house can't really comfortably accomodate that many people to sleep in (I warned them this and they brought their own sleeping bags, air mattresses, etc.), but they still managed to have a great time, leave the home very well kept, and left me without a worry. I would love to host their company retreat again.
Fantastic views and great location

We recently stayed at this home with my family and another family as well. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone with children or a larger group of adults. It has lots of beds and nice big TV's in every room. The house was well equipped with everything we needed for a nice beach weekend. Having the beach and restaurants all within a short walk was definitely the best part. We walked along a state park ocean trail to the local ice cream and burger shack on the beach. My kids loved it. The location of many restaurants, bank, starbucks, and a grocery store all within walking distance was also a great bonus as we had more time to spend at the beach and house instead of running around trying to find parking etc. There also was a nice pool table and sitting room that overlooked the back patio that the kids really enjoyed. The setup of the house was great for a larger group because the kitchen, pool table, and back patio are all located such that we could do different things without being separated and we could keep an eye on the kids very easily. The back patio with the firepit and hot tub was roomy with enough room to sit or move around which was an added bonus. Watching the water and stars at night around the fire was a nightly ritual that we all enjoyed. The owner was available and helpful. We had a few questions and 1 minor issue and all were taken care of immediately and efficiently without disturbing us. I would definitely say this place was better than it looked on the pictures and we had a great overall experience.

Owner response: Travis and his family were wonderful guests. They rented the home at the last minute as their two families came for a wedding weekend after deciding against staying at nearby hotels. They kept the home very clean and were very respectful of the home. They had a minor issue that I took care of within the hour as I was just up the street. Any other questions about they house they had they either called or text me and I responded immediately as my phone is an extension of my hand when I have guests at the home so I can be as attentive to their needs as possible. I hope to be able to host their family again as they were wonderful and ideal tenants.

Just returned from one week stay at this great home at Crystal Cove in Newport Beach. First off really want to thank Ali for getting us into his house on extremely short notice. We had arranged to stay at another home in the area but at the last minute the owner had issues with maintenance and we needed to find someplace else quickly. I got in touch with Ali who was very accommodating right from the start. Even though some other guests had just left he immediately had his house cleaners come in and prep the home for us so we could get in later that day. And it was VERY clean. Ali was terrific in giving us useful information and advice on places to visit. If we needed anything at all he would make arrangements to make sure we got it. He definitely wanted to make sure that we had nothing to worry about on our vacation. The house itself is great; my wife and I plus our 25 yr old son and 23 yr. old daughter really enjoyed it. It is very spacious and comfortable; and the private patio is great. It overlooks the ocean and we ended every night under the stars in the hot tub or by the outdoor gas fire pit. All you see is the ocean; it is completely private from any neighbors. The area itself is super; the very upscale community it's in has 24 hour guarded gates so is very secure. And the community center has a huge pool and spa, plus tennis courts. And they aren't packed with people. My son and I played tennis under the lights in the evening and we spent most of one day in the pool area with our own cabana and pretty much had the place to ourselves. The walk to the beach is about 10 minutes and the beach is really great around Crystal Cove-the water was fantastic for boogie boards (which Ali got for us to use)! Right outside the gates of the community is the Crystal Cove Promenade which has lots of shops and some fantastic restaurants-we highly recommend Javiers! There is also a Trader Joes there which is where we got most of our food. We absolutely loved the house and location and would stay there again in an instant if we are able to be back in the area sometimes. We have rented many vacation properties in different areas and this was by far the best experience and location we have had. Thanks again Ali and we hope to see you again.

Owner response: David's family was wonderful to host! They were only the 2nd family to have been hosted and they took great care of my home. I hope to host David and Sharon again in the future. They were extremely clean and left the home absolutely spotless before leaving. David even spent time with me after his trip to go over any home related items I could improve upon and I have since fixed all the minor details he discussed with me. I believe I was able to address any issues they had during their stay and tried to accommodate them as fast as possible. If I am around, I will do everything in my power to ensure an amazing vacation. Honestly, it's really important to me that you not only rent the home, but have an amazing time. Everybody wins that way.

My family (wife and three kids) were looking for a great beach property to rent recently. We had rented in Carpinteria, Avila Beach and Newport Peninsula over the past few years. I connected with the owner on this property at the last minute. The property owner was responsive and very accommodating. With short notice, he got us into the property with only a couple of days notice and made us quite comfortable. He even met us at the house the first night with a wonderful bottle of wine and cookies for the kids. We felt immediately at home. The location of the property is excellent. Last year, we had a poor experience with the noise, congestion and relatively poor accommodations on the Peninsula and wanted something more up-scale, quiet and family oriented. This home is in a beautiful and private gated community. The community has a private pool, tennis courts, play areas and workout facility. Walking five minutes gets you to Crystal Cove shopping center where you will find shopping, Trader Joe's and several restaurants at all price levels. Walk five more minutes and you will be on the sand at the Pacific. Although the house is not directly on the beach, the views are fantastic and beach access is only about 10 minutes away. While you are at the beach, make sure to hit the Shake Shack (across PCH from the home). You'll love winding down at the end of the day on the back patio of the house sitting around the fire pit or in the hot tub watching the sun set over the Pacific. It's a very relaxing place. Often the kids would be in the hot tub or playing pool after a day at the beach while we would sit on the patio watching the sunset. The house is roomy, clean and well laid out for a family. We were the first people ever to rent the home so there were small items that could be improved upon, but none of them hindered our visit. I met with the owner after our stay and shared how I thought the property could be improved. He was eager to hear and let me know he'd immediately try to implement most of my ideas. The appointments are more than adequate for a beach vacation, but not so nice that you'll be worried about kids breaking or tearing things up. If your idea of a family beach vacation includes a quiet, private home in a dream location that's very family friendly, put this place on your short list. I suppose the most telling question is whether we would go back. We will be vacationing at this property again!

Owner response: I can't say enough nice things about the Tony's family! They were the first family our home hosted and they couldn't have been a more perfect first family to host. They are a great family that I would love to host again! They took great care of my home and their children were very clean and respectful of their rooms and the home. Tony was extremely helpful in giving me some great feedback on how I could improve the home. I was so appreciative of his great feedback to help me improve the living experience for future guests and hopefully their family again. I have since implemented many of his suggestions. I'm very glad to have met and hosted the Tony's family and hope to host them again!

About the owner: I've grown up in Orange County my whole life and went to college in LA (USC). With my brothers, father, and mother we run our family businesses together in Orange County. We have this AMAZING house that I've been living in with my younger brother for the past 7 years. Growing up, I'm been fortunate enough to travel to 50+ countries and it has always been a dream of mine to own hostel. I understand the needs of a traveler more than anyone and I consider myself to be an excellent host (thanks to my Mom!). Since the explosion of VRBO, we have been using the house as a vacation home for long term renters and I've loved every second of it. Meeting and helping new and returning guests as they explore my local neighborhood is something I truly cherish. My goal is to be your personal concierge and have your vacation be as stress-free and fun as possible. I am confident you will not find a better host on VRBO that cares about his guests like I do.
Why the Owner Chose Crystal Cove:
Luxury! Location! Luxury! Location! Luxury! Location! The home sits inside one of the most prestigious gated communities in Southern California. Everything you need is within 5-10 minutes.

Just outside the gates is an excellent shopping center that has all the shops you could need.
