BEST RENTAL WE'VE STAYED AT ON THE NEWPORT PENINSULA!
"We've been coming to Newport for 15 years, staying on the Peninsula - and this is our NEW FAVORITE! Janice & Bill were great hosts, making booking arrangements so easy. But when we walked into the house, that's when we knew we had picked a really great house this time! Music was playing quietly and as we walked around the house, one room was nicer than the next. We loved the little touches, the art on the walls, the book of THINGS TO DO, an extensive choice of books and current magazines, even a small safe for our valuables. And one house from the sand.
Over our five night stay, we found the kitchen had everything we needed (and then some), we loved hanging out on the front patio, being steps from the beach was perfect, and the restaurant recommendations in the book were great! The beds were comfy and the bedding was very nice, and the house was super clean. Our family of six could not have been happier. We were just a half hour from Disneyland and we didn't even have to get on the freeway and hassle with traffic! Instead of looking for a different vacation home for next year, we are planning a stay at the Sandcastle again! We most definitely recommend this vacation home if you are looking for a clean and comfortable house just steps from the beach."

"We have been coming to Newport Beach for our family vacation for 12 years now and we absolutely love it!!! We came across this beach house 4 years ago and we are bummed we didn't find it earlier, we love this house and the owners are so accommodating in so many ways!!! We look forward to our yearly stay at this wonderful house!!! The owner offers bikes, boogie boards, chairs etc. for you to use so you don't have to bring anything from home. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you will need to bake, cook and grill!! It has a washer and dryer in great working condition and a great family room where we love to sit and play games(which are provided) and watch movies. The bedrooms are comfortable and spacious. And you can't beat the walking distance to the beach its just right!! We are grateful that John and his family are willing to share this beach house with us as we continue to make the best memories with our family! Thanks John!"

"What an absolutely perfect spot on the beach - you can't get any better. Huge beach, wake up to surfers and sound of the ocean - not crowded during March spring break. And being one house off of the bike/walking path is huge for privacy/noise. We had a 4 and 5 yr old with us and while the walk was a bit far to the Newport Pier (but we still did it), we had easy walks to eat out near the Pavilion grocery store and gelato!
House itself had plenty of extra sheets, (beach) towels, plastic ware, etc. Nice to have private parking on site and would be ideal to store bikes. Main bath with shower will need a remodel at some point to match the rest of the house but overall great space for 4 days, even for a family of 4! I would recommend investing in new beds in the near future as well.
Owners are low key and friendly and provided some Keurig coffees, fresh pastries and every recommendation was spot on! Would recommend and would definitely stay here again:)"
