  • Great Vaction

    "We had a great time. 2 blocks from the beach, bicycle riding, swimming, breakfast in town and awesome sunsets. The accomodations were perfect for two. Thanks for the the great communication and help getting around town. We would love to come back."

    "The home is gorgeous they didn't cut corners when it came to quality in the home, except for A/C there isn't one! It was unbearably hot! The second day they brought us two fans but it just didn't cut it. All windows have to be open and much to my dismay it isn't a quite neighborhood like I thought it would be staying off of the boardwalk. Many of the homes around this beautiful home are not as nice which seemed to attract a younger crowd. We did enjoy our stay but definitely needed more sleep than what the property accommodated. Having air conditioning would have allowed us to shut the windows and block out a lot of the noise."

  • 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."

  • Wonderful Getaway

    "Loved this unit and location. Took my mom, teenage daughter and a couple of her friends for 3 nights. Everyone had a blast. The weather was beautiful and the deck was so relaxing. It was like an extra room. 15 minute walk to Newport pier and 25 min walk to Balboa pier. Rented paddle boards off 15th street. Walked everywhere. Laventina's Pizza was yummy and delivered. I definitely would consider renting this unit again."
