Recent Balboa Peninsula reviews

  • Beach House

    "We loved it! Great location! So close to the beach! Within walking distance to grocery store, restaurants, gift shops, coffee shops, and yes--a 24 hour doughnut shop! We loved walking out onto the pier every morning and seeing the sea lions. We were also lucky enough to see dolphins and even whales! We also enjoyed going for bike rides every day and just enjoying the sounds and scenery! This is such a friendly, laid back, fun place. We would definitely recommend this fun beach house! We also enjoyed the pictures and history of this house!"

    "We just stayed at Gary's Beach House and it definitely was paradise. The location is excellent. It is within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, shopping, nail salons, etc. This is a must because there is limited parking in Newport Beach. The neighbors were very kind and helpful to us. There were 5 females in our group and having two full bathrooms and 3 patios/balconies were great. Everyone had as much privacy as they wanted. Gary was available by phone for many questions from all five of us. Everything you need to live comfortably is provided. From hair dryers to coffee maker, this allows you to pack light. We loved it! I will definitely rent from Gary the next time I am in Newport Beach. This Beach House is highly recommended by all five of us!"

  • Amazing location

    "We had two moms and 3 teen daughters for spring break and it was a slice of heaven. Janice and Bill were there to greet us in the beautifully decorated and spotless beach house. The location was perfect for walking everywhere we needed to go and there are great waves for swimming and surfing steps away. We would highly recommend The Sandcastle to all ages. We will be back for sure:) Wendy Vesling"

  • AMAZING!!!

    "We recently took a "staycation" at this lovely gem and as the other reviews stated--it is far better than the pictures show! We were a family of five with three kids aged 9-12. They were in love with the window seats and rooftop deck plus all the games they were able to play since we were having a "no electronic" weekend. There is a baby beach on the bay side which was perfect for a relaxing day and picnic with the kids. It is charming and spacious and close to everything. We love Newport Beach and have stayed there many times, but this is definitely a favorite! Matt is accommodating and wonderful and we will be back!!"
