"My family and I really enjoyed our time here. The location was incredible, a few steps from the sand. Restaurants and the pier also just steps away. The property management team was so accommodating and kind. I will definitely be booking again in the near future."

"We had a great time at this beach house! It was very clean, upgraded, and had everything we needed-- even boogie boards and beach toys. It was close to everything--we didn't use our car once. We rented bikes for the week right across the street. Lots of restaurants to choose from. Grocery store was a mile down the street. We biked to Balboa and Huntington a few times, and paddle boarded in the bay. Our kids had a great time! (8 yrs old and 11 yrs old) Thank you David- we will definitely be staying her again!"

"OK, Kitt and Pete, after 13 years, I guess it's time we posted a review! We are the Gordon family from Granite Bay, CA, and longtime summer renters. We came across this VRBO listing for the upper house when our twin girls were starting Kindergarten in 2002 -- they are now starting college at UC Davis this week and we have been back every year except in 2011, when we vacationed on the east coast. It's a beautiful, spacious house in a great area, very tastefully furnished and decorated with a beach/marine theme and Pete's own photography; it's incredibly comfortable, has a well-equipped kitchen, includes linens, a washer-dryer, beach gear and bikes; and has a garage! Our favorite feature of all might be the rooftop deck which boasts a view in all directions. We have fond memories of relaxing up there, enjoying the breeze as we sip a glass of wine and watch the sunset. It's lovely to stroll along the bayfront over to the fun zone or Newport Landing, and easy to hop on the ferry and continue the walk on Balboa Island. The beach is just a couple of blocks the other way on foot; and we've always enjoyed biking along the boardwalk up to Newport pier, or down to the Wedge. Thank you for having us back all these years to share your incredible home, and for keeping it so nice!"

"Chris is awesome! Very easy to work with. We had a great time at this home! The location was perfect!!! We had a really great time and the kids loved playing in the sand right in front of the house. Thank you so much!"
