"Perfect location and beautiful home. We had the upper unit and the inside was even prettier than the pictures show. Better than any other rental I have seen. Has everything you need included for a great vacation. I would definitely come back here."

"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!"

"This is a beautiful rental with great upgrades. The whole space served us well and was larger than we expected. We were VERY happy with this choice. View of Newport Bay is good, although I wish the deck wall itself was see-through (a few taller chairs are provided on the deck that help the view). Family beach is right there and Newport Beach is less than 3 blocks away (you can see it if you lean out of the deck!) with Newport Pier, restaurants, shops, etc. just a few blocks from there. GREAT, GREAT, GREAT LOCATION! Front & Deck is shaded in the hotter afternoons into evening; so nice. For a good workout, we walked the 2 miles to Balboa Pier & back! Love that this was NOT on the main beach boardwalk with all the chaos, crowds, bikes, and noise there. Location can be a bit noisy during the day due to the close proximity to the family beach, but typical for any urban setting at the beach. It was always pretty quiet at night. Beds were GREAT and we may go buy one ourselves! Kitchen was on the small size for accommodating more than 2 people at a time, but totally fine, beautiful & fully equipped with absolutely everything we needed. Love the large granite counter with bar seating on the other side. Laundry inside unit was super helpful (and you even provided the detergent!); BBQ is hard-lined to gas (nice!). Having the garage was great (it's super tiny, though) and we were always able to figure out parking for our visitors with a little effort or paying the nominal fee at the large Family Beach parking lot. Street Sweeping days were a challenge and you may want to remind your guests of it because they don't do that in many other states. Considering the cost & how nice the space is, better room fans could be provided, as there is no A/C (there was usually a good breeze there & I know no A/C is typical at the beach). We live in Georgia now, but both grew up in So Cal and spent many years of our youth & young adulthood at Newport Beach. Thanks for helping us have such a great new experience while visiting our Calif family & friends. Can't wait to return!"

"The seashore shanty was absolutely amazing! It was clean, cozy and just steps to the ocean! The size of the beach house was great and the patio was very spacious! Good location within walking distance to restaurants and shops. Would definitely return for future vacations! :)"
