  • Had a very comfortable stay! Great owners!

    "We stayed here for 2 weeks in October. Overall it was a pleasant stay but we too had issues with the fridge and ended up having to throw a lot of groceries that went bad. Saying that the owners were so onto everything we complained about and even offered to pay for the spoilt food. They sent a fridge repair man immediately and the fridge just needed defrosting due to an ice issue. We also complained about people upstairs making noise and the owner contacted the people straight away which is pretty impressive! Obviously this was out of the owners control. The unit was neat and clean, great for a family. The location is superb and perfect for a beach holiday. It could do with air conditioning but for the fantastic price we couldn't complain. I would stay there again if needed and really appreciate such fantastic flexible owners with great communication."

  • Great Great location

    "The house was very clean and right on the beach. Being on the first floor made it even better because we could sit on the patio and people watch. It is in a great location where you can walk to stores and restaurants. We all loved it!"

  • 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."

  • Great Way to Unwind After Disneyland

    "My wife, 5 year old son, 2 year old daughter, and I met up with my in-laws in LA earlier this year for our children's first Disneyland vacation. We spent the first night at the Disneyland Resort Hotel and spent an entire day at the park. After an exhausting day and fairly short drive (by LA standards) we found ourselves at Russ's fantastic beach retreat in Newport Beach, and immediately started unpacking and getting the kids to bed. The next four days we spent recovering from Disneyland, with no shortage of great options for kids and adults alike. The beach is a short walk away and in March was very clean and not crowded at all. Restaurants were an easy bike ride away, made easier by the fact that the house came stocked with enough bikes for all four adults to get around, and the guys at the bike shop at Newport Pier had a trailer for the two kids. We biked to the Balboa Island Ferry, both piers, restaurants, shops, arcades... really was a fantastic location to get all along the strip while avoiding all the noise and congestion closer to the piers. The house fit our family perfectly. Grandma and grandpa got the upstairs master bedroom, while my wife and I took one of the 1st floor bedrooms down the hall from the room we put the kids in (two twins worked well). We barricaded the exterior / garage doors to keep the little ones from wandering away, and the rest went flawlessly. Plenty of space for us, kitchen had all the supplies / utensils you could every need, and the patio was a great place to sit and have a beer during nap time. Fantastic value considering how close you are to the beach and how much room you have. The finishing touch was when Russ saved the day by sending us our son's lost mickey mouse hat... which is consistent with the great service we got from the time we made the reservation to the time the mickey mouse hat arrived back home! Thanks Russ -- we will definintely recommend for anyone else heading out to Newport Beach, particularly any families recovering from a Disneyland adventure."
