Great cozy place to stay
"Great location, fun little place by the beach and bay. This place comes stocked full with everything you will need, dishes, towels, beach towels, sand toys for kids, extra blankets, Pillows etc. we will definitely stay here again. I only had one issue with the wifi but after texting the owner he responded within 5 minutes and resolved my issue. Great stay!!!"

"What a wonderful time we all had! Chris was so pleasant to work with and very accomodating to make this occasion very special. We had 3 generations of loved ones and we had a great time. Even though there was a cold snap while we were there, watching the beautiful sunsets, from the warm living room upstairs, with Catalina in the foreground and enjoying wine with friends, was fantastic! Thanks again, Chris! We'll be back in the summer and ready to get into the surf!"

"I've stayed in Newport Beach many times over the course of my life and this was one of the nicest properties I've ever stayed at. Clean, updated, comfortable, and all the basics are provided for you. At other properties in the past, we've had to provide our own bedding (sheets and pillows!) bring beach towels, pack or buy beach chairs, and rent bikes. This is ALL provided for you at this property and makes packing for your trip so much easier and less stressful.
Kirsten was wonderful to work with, emailed several times to make sure we would have everything we needed for our stay, and was prompt in responding with any questions that I had.
Location was perfect! A very short block and a half walk to the beach, a couple blocks from a nice grocery store, and also walking distance to several restaurants and cute little souvenir shops. Fashion Island (a big outdoor mall with tons of stores and restaurants) was only a short drive away. Laguna Beach is also a fun spot to visit and a short drive from the property.
The beach itself is one of the best beaches on the west coast. The sand is amazingly soft and they keep the beaches clean. We saw Dolphins out swimming every day we were there. Although I was there for a girl's weekend with a friend (which was absolutely heavenly), I couldn't help but think of how much my 5 and 3 year-old boys would love this beach!! There's a rock pier where little crabs hide, early in the mornings when the tide is low you can gather all kinds of neat seashells, and the beach is so nice, you can lay on your towels and the kids can play and build sand castles along the edge of the water--SO fun. Also great little waves for boogie boarding and saw its of surfers out in the morning hours.
Basically 4 days here with my best friend was heaven on earth and I hope to be back sooner rather than later! Maybe with my kids next time."

"I cannot begin to tell you what an amazing time we had for spring break. Two families with 10 teenagers and we had a blast. This property is just incredible and the owner is on top of everything. We were close to everything we wanted to do. The place was clean and plenty big enough for 14. We even had friends come out just for the day and they couldn't believe the place. We cannot wait to rent this house again."
