"The Surf Shack was absolutely perfect - very nicely appointed and decorated; very clean; steps to the beach and pier; and only a short walk to the shops on Del Mar. The master bed was very comfortable and the unit was well equipped with appliances and TV's. Above all, the view was the best! The one e pictures are an accurate depiction."

"What an amazing home! My husband and I stayed here with our two children for a perfect getaway. As soon as we walked in we fell in love with the impressive decor that gives the home a resort feel. The best of both worlds!! The kitchen was well equipped and the family room provided us with amazing views. The bedrooms for the kids were perfect, but the real treat is the master suite!! We have stayed at many resort properties and none have equaled the master suite in this home! Even the tub in the master bath has expansive ocean views!! After enjoying brunch at the Montage it felt nice to come back to the stunning views and comfort of this home. The private beach was perfect for family time and we recommend all this home has to offer to those blessed to vacation here."

"Everything we expected and more. This is a really nice property right off the beach, about 50 steps away. That of course is the main attraction, and being so close and on the beach side of Balboa Blvd is incredibly convenient. Some days we didn't use the car at all! A very comfortable interior, looks newly updated. Great beds and a lot of nice touches. Definitely not your average beach house rental, a true next level up from that. Listing description was very accurate, it's actually nicer and roomier than the pictures lead on. The property was very clean, everything in the house worked great. Great communication between us and owners before and during our stay. The parking spot was a little tricky for the small SUV we rented - a tip would be rent a smaller car, it will fit easier in the spot. But hey it's great to have your own spot in this part of town where parking is a premium. Newport Beach, beautiful beach, plenty to do just in town. Great restaurants we tried were Wild Taco, Gina's Pizza, Sancho's, Joe's Crab Shack, and the poke bar at Bristol Farms market. City Donuts has some fantastic donuts for morning coffee and donut time, too. I would recommend the Sandcastle highly, high quality place in a great location!"

"This cute bungalow was just the right space for me to call home for a week. After living in Newport Beach for 20 years, then moving to NC, this house was in the best location for me to revisit all the things I love about the area, see my friends and my grown kids. The owner is so hospitable and helpful! I brought my little dog along. There is an enclosed patio where she was able to hang out. This house has space for one car in the garage -- SO IMPORTANT because parking is a challenge on Balboa Island."
