Spectacular Beach Home- Elegant and comfortable - Excellent owner and contract compliance
"We have hosted our second Family Reunion in this beautiful home in Newport Beach for the last week of July 2015. As before, this home served as the center of activities for over 35 family members (two other Newport Beach homes were also available for the family). There was plenty of room available for outdoor lawn activities and shared meals, 7 active toddlers, birthday celebrations and even a proposal of marriage! We plan to return again for years to come, God willing. Thanks to Loraine DeFrank for her beautiful and elegant home."

"Before arriving, there was constant communication and all questions/concerns were answered. Once we arrived, we were given the tour of the house (even though we came in early...VERY welcoming and friendly!) The house was beautiful and perfect for the amount of people we had. Just a minute from beach, so we were in heaven and just a drive to get to where we wanted (went fishing at Newport Landing, fished at pier, surfed) Overall, we had an excellent experience, the kids had a blast and we WILL be back next year! With it being July 4th, it was hectic and we were told that, but after the area was quiet. Enjoyed our visit, already planning for next year!"

The house was perfect in every single way! It was even more beautiful than the photo.
"This house is pure luxury. We had such a fabulous time and the owner and property manager thought of pretty much everything to make our stay perfect. It was fully equipped with everything you could need in the kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms. There was also a ton of closet space for our clothes and suitcases. The house also included the use of four really nice bikes, beach chairs, beach toys, kayaks, etc. We went to Disneyland one day but decided to forgo the second day because we preferred to hang out at the house because it was so awesome. This was actually the kids’ idea.
The house sits in a prime location right at the water’s edge. The kids played pool, or with beach toys by the water when the tide was low, while the adults enjoyed the absolutely amazing view. We took out the Duffey boat several times during our stay and enjoyed the sightseeing. We LOVED having use of the Duffy. And it was easy to find the house when we headed back because it really is the tallest house on the peninsula. All the balconies were really nice too. We ate pretty much all our meals outside. There are also a lot of great restaurants close by.
Every detail of the house was awesome. The beds were super comfortable too and so was the bedding. We loved the cool Spanish tiled showers and bathtubs too. Our kids enjoyed the huge jacuzzi tub as much as I did.
We live in the San Francisco Bay Area and rent a lot of houses on the west coast through VRBO and this one was by far our favorite. We really appreciated that the property manager, Lauren, was responsive and very nice from beginning to end. She gave us a thourough tour of the house when we first arrived, which included showing us how to use the elevator and boat. We texted her with a question during our stay and she texted right back. In all honesty, this house was absolutely perfect and we definitely plan to rent it again. (BTW, we rented the house in mid-October and the weather was gorgeous.)"

"This was our families first time using VRBO and renting a beach house. This property was listed exactly as described and ease of payment was secure and trustworthy. We needed to bring 'nothing'. Everything you was there..beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, surf boards and ice chests. There was nothing we needed but our clothes. The beach is literally across the street and parking was available for two cars..that's a big plus...also we had unlimited use to bicycles...four of them.
Any communication with the owner was prompt, friendly and genuine. We will definitely come back again if our schedule permits without even looking at other properties. Thank you for the stress free vacation."
