  • Terrific Beach house

    "My family rented this property for a week in July. We couldn't have been happier the owner was great, very nice and accommodative and the agent - Erin - was terrific she took care of everything we needed and was a pleasure to work with. The property is in the best location on the beach walking distance from shops and restaurants, every one of us from the kids to the adults had an amazing holiday. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone."

  • Good Family Get-away

    "We rented the upper unit for spring vacation. It fit all 7 of us comfortably. The unit was just renovated. The ocean/marine decor adds a bit of unique fun to the experience. The ceiling is constructed with finished wood beams that compliment the beautiful new wood flooring. The owner was very accommodating and great to work with. He was quick to resolve any issues we had with the unit and suggested several things to do. The duplex is located very near the beach and not having to worry about children crossing a busy street was a plus. Beach things provided for the use of renters include boogie boards, beach chairs, and beach toys for the kids. Newport Beach Pier, a grocery store, Santo's Tacos, and a Gelato store are among the many, many places within walking distance from the unit. From the pier, we saw a couple of juvenile whales playing fairly close to the shore as well as a few Sea Lions swimming around the end of the pier. All great experiences for families."

  • Didn't want to leave!

    "For me this was the perfect beach vacation home. It was much more than I was expecting. It was clean and everything you need is provided except your meals and personal clothes. Jim, the owner was very nice and quick to respond with questions and the one issue that came up. He even brought us flowers which was so sweet! I recently lost my husband and we had planned this vacation to go together before he got really ill. I decided to go anyways but I was a bit anxious as to how I would be without him. It was the best thing I could've done for myself! This home is beautiful and so relaxing. I would have been perfectly happy to just stay in and relax in the Master Suite, go for a walk on the boardwalk in the morning and spend time just sitting on the sand at the beach, which was just a very short walk away. I took a few family members with me and we rented bikes, took the ferry to Balboa Island and ate at various restaurants. There's even a place at the Newport pier where you can buy fresh fish. We bought a whole black cod which they cleaned and cut in steaks for us. We then brought it back to the house and grilled it. It was so good and buttery!...We cooked most of our meals at this house and there wasn't an item we needed that they didn't provide! We loved it so much that we extended our stay. Can't wait to go back next year!"

  • Just Perfect

    "This is a perfect property for everyone. Myself and my family of 9 stayed at this house for 7 days. Inside is beautiful. We had all ages in our group stay at this house. We brought my 60+ year old mother, teenagers, adults and 2 young kids. It is a perfect location. Grocery store and plenty of places to eat with in walking distance. Pier is just up the road. Beach is so close. I loved that the owner provided beach bikes, Boogie boards, towels, sand toys and chairs. I would absolutely stay here again. Thank you"
