"OK, Kitt and Pete, after 13 years, I guess it's time we posted a review! We are the Gordon family from Granite Bay, CA, and longtime summer renters. We came across this VRBO listing for the upper house when our twin girls were starting Kindergarten in 2002 -- they are now starting college at UC Davis this week and we have been back every year except in 2011, when we vacationed on the east coast. It's a beautiful, spacious house in a great area, very tastefully furnished and decorated with a beach/marine theme and Pete's own photography; it's incredibly comfortable, has a well-equipped kitchen, includes linens, a washer-dryer, beach gear and bikes; and has a garage! Our favorite feature of all might be the rooftop deck which boasts a view in all directions. We have fond memories of relaxing up there, enjoying the breeze as we sip a glass of wine and watch the sunset. It's lovely to stroll along the bayfront over to the fun zone or Newport Landing, and easy to hop on the ferry and continue the walk on Balboa Island. The beach is just a couple of blocks the other way on foot; and we've always enjoyed biking along the boardwalk up to Newport pier, or down to the Wedge. Thank you for having us back all these years to share your incredible home, and for keeping it so nice!"

"This is a great beach house. Perfect accommodations and location. My family and I had a great relaxing Memorial weekend filled with bike rides on the boardwalk, easy access to the beach with provided beach chairs, beautiful sunsets, walking distance to great restaurants and a fully stocked kitchen and usable grill. We can't wait to visit again."

"When I think of a place to get away to, this is the place. This was my second stay at this home and I just absolutely love it. Just about everything you need is provided for. So close to the beach and restaurants that you don't even need a car. Very clean, comfortable and organized.
My boyfriend and I stayed in the master bedroom, we left the french doors open to let in the sea breeze in and the music playing from the armoire all night, it was so romantic, peaceful and we slept like babies."

"I booked with Dave months in advance in anticipation of our nuptials on 090915. We checked in a few days early and arrived hours before the rental was ready. Dave was very accommodating and allowed us to leave our luggage in the house while we visited one of his recommended restaurants (he gave us a list). one settled in, we had a great experience with all the amenities offered. We biked, boogy boarded, and used the towels and chairs all week. Dave dropped in a few times to check on our level of comfort, which was more than expected. He even gave us an extra fan for guests we let stay the night after our rehearsal dinner. The location was perfect for our pre-wedding family gatherings. I was even able to have my make up artist and photographer come to the house to get me ready for my big day. All of my guests were amazed at the location and amenities offered at such a reasonable price! The day of check out, Dave gave us extra time to check out, considering we were exhausted from the wedding the night before. I would recommend this place to everyone and stay again. Thank you Dave!"
