Wonderful Location, Wonderful Home!
"This cute little beach house exceeded our expectations in every way! We found it a tremendous value considering the location and amenities. My husband and I grew up in Orange County and were looking for a place we could have family and friends over while we were on vacation with our two sons. The living room had plenty of comfy seating, the kitchen well equipped, and the patio was perfect for laughter and grilling. The house was clean and the beds comfy. Having a garage to park in eliminated the stress of finding street parking (it is a hunt!) and we came and went as we pleased. We used the beach chairs and boogie boards provided; the beach is just a short walk across Balboa Blvd. The Balboa Fun Zone is nearby as well, close enough to walk to but far enough you don't get noise and foot traffic in front of the home. We loved waking over there for a sweet treat, ferris wheel ride, and arcade games! Margaret, the owner, was very pleasant and helpful. I added this property to my VRBO favorites, and look forward to staying there again!"

"My granddaughters, ages 10 and 11, and I loved this upper unit, the sunset was awesome to see from this view! The unit is very well kept and had everything we needed. The location is great with shops very close by to rent anything from bikes to body boards, which my granddaughters loved. There are shops for quick snacks and nice restaurants. The beach is within a few feet of the unit with a water station to rinse off the salt water and sand. The owner, Doug was great. I didn't meet him personally, but he called a few days before our arrival to explain everything we needed to know. We would love to stay here again!"

"We have been coming to Newport Beach for our family vacation for 12 years now and we absolutely love it!!! We came across this beach house 4 years ago and we are bummed we didn't find it earlier, we love this house and the owners are so accommodating in so many ways!!! We look forward to our yearly stay at this wonderful house!!! The owner offers bikes, boogie boards, chairs etc. for you to use so you don't have to bring anything from home. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you will need to bake, cook and grill!! It has a washer and dryer in great working condition and a great family room where we love to sit and play games(which are provided) and watch movies. The bedrooms are comfortable and spacious. And you can't beat the walking distance to the beach its just right!! We are grateful that John and his family are willing to share this beach house with us as we continue to make the best memories with our family! Thanks John!"

"We rented this property because 14 of us were traveling to Newport Beach to celebrate our daughters graduation. We rented both floors (A and B) to house everyone. The property was clean and we had plenty of space. There were family members ages 17 to 65 and all had a great time. Perfect location for beach activities, shopping, biking, hanging out on the patio and balcony, and Disneyland isn't far. We will be back!"
