"What a vacation -- what a house --- right on the beach - first floor is key. Coffee on the patio while people watching. Cocktails and sunset all from the patio as you sit on the beach. Whale watching, Dolphins all from the patio just a bonus. House is clean with all amenities. Lawn chairs provided and are key for the beach. Bikes, boogie boards and parking. Location location location. When not onthebeach you can walk to town and frequent a dozen different shops and/or restaraunts. Don't ever need to leave -unless of course for day trips. So close to John Wayne airport.
Owner met us while we arrived to show place and amenities. We were able to occupy earlier since we had an early flight. Working grill, washer/dryer can't say enough ---- we want to come back again and soon. Quite spectacular ! And as the daughter of a realtor------ it's all about location location location"

"There really is something to be said about feeling like you're in a home away from home. From the supplies that made trips to the beach a little easier to the toys and books that were left out to help entertain our two young girls (4 and 2), sliding right into an enjoyable stay is definitely part of the experience Kirsten creates for her guests. There's something minimalistic yet totally complete about the apartment, and from the moment we walked in the door we felt settled. Besides the obvious reason people would want to stay here (access and location), this place really is great because of the little details. This is one of the best ways you can enjoy Newport Beach--you won't regret your choice.In fact, maybe next time we'll be selfish and go back without the kids."

"John always provides a clean comfortable home at the beach, we have been renting from him for over 10 years. It is close to the beach, a park across the street for the kids to play and stores within walking distance."

"We just stayed at Gary's Beach House and it definitely was paradise. The location is excellent. It is within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, shopping, nail salons, etc. This is a must because there is limited parking in Newport Beach. The neighbors were very kind and helpful to us. There were 5 females in our group and having two full bathrooms and 3 patios/balconies were great. Everyone had as much privacy as they wanted. Gary was available by phone for many questions from all five of us. Everything you need to live comfortably is provided. From hair dryers to coffee maker, this allows you to pack light. We loved it! I will definitely rent from Gary the next time I am in Newport Beach. This Beach House is highly recommended by all five of us!"
