DO NOT BELIEVE THIS AD AT ALL /-NOT Safe
To start off I can validate anything that I am saying with photos. THIS AD is very deceptive and misleading especially about the boat, AS they have no intentions on any use of the boat let alone your free use of it and I was there for four days and it was never made when we could use it without them being in the boat with us. And even when we asked to go out on the boat there was always an excuse and it’s too windy it’s to this or that. No matter if we have had experience, which we used to own boats, and our company has a boat pilots license, and this is just a simple simple little boat! Again do not believe this AD. And if you look at other comments, I wish I had earlier, they always had an excuse why the boat could never be used and cleaning it’s being painted. The stairs are extremely steep and shallow, I don’t even believe they’re up to code, and there was no lights in the stairwell so extremely DANGEROUS. There is basically no lighting in this place, even though they have a few skylights, which has no benefit when it’s dark out. To actually use and watch the TVs, although there are three, you have to bring your own Netflix account or Amazon or whatever, because otherwise you’re not going to be with able to watch any TV. The windows were either very stuck or broken meaning the frames were pulling away from the window so you couldn’t either open them or close them. There was no control for any heat nor was there any thermostat, and it was very cold only 50° out at night, so the place was chilled and you couldn’t do anything about it other than try to take a hot shower ! The area that they showed pictures from, it’s from their portion of the house which is got the beautiful view of the bay. Even though they say you could use the patio area and the barbecue, the man, Scott, sat in this house and watched every move. I felt like I was in a new age Hitchcock movie and it was pretty creepy. They also say that they were there to help you out with anything for 24 hours, but whenever I said we need lights we need this we need there there, there’s always been a will work on getting to that when we can and even though it was dangerous having no Lights on the stairwell we have to actually ask for a flashlight so we can see where we were going and we’re 66 and 67 years old. I really do not think this home is up to code it was clean it just wasn’t safe
The only concern was 1 of the advertised queen was the living room pullout couch so it cut into the living apace. Perfect house for 2-4 people. Too small for 6 people. Everything else was excellent. We had plenty to do and the owners were very nice.
Great spot on the harbor.
We used the paddle boards daily to watch the sun rise, and see some sea lions. We also used the bikes everyday to ride down to the beach and along the path. We would take them down to balboa island and crusie around.
The beach supplies are great as well, everything you need to have some fun. The only disappointment was the boat. From the discription(free use of boat) I thought we could use the boat, but that was not the case and we never did go out. We rented a boat instead down at the pier. Overall nice place to stay and the kids enjoyed it as well. (There is not a view of the water)
I am glad you had fun and sorry the boat was being painted during your stay. The boat is back now and waiting to be used by our next guests who are planning to have a birthday party on the patio and taking the boat with their family to view the Newport Harbor. Have a wonderful summer and we loved hosting you. Judi, Nuel and Scott Benson..

Light-filled, brand-new rental in a great location
My husband and I stayed here for four days a couple of weeks ago. From my first interaction with Judi, one of the owners, to our good-byes on our last day, I was impressed with the care and consideration they provide to their guests.
This upper unit is sunny, beautifully decorated and very well-equipped. While the kitchenette doesn't have a stove, the owners do provide a hot plate, large toaster oven, microwave and good-sized refrigerator, dishwasher and all the dinnerware you could wish for.
Included in the rental is exclusive use of the patio shown in the photos. It's a perfect place to relax and read or make dinner on the BBQ. In addition, the owners also provide all the beach supplies you'll need for a great day by the water. Boogie boards, skim boards, chairs, umbrella, and beach towels are tucked into a beach wagon for easy toting. There are also a couple of bikes for a cruise around the neighborhood.
The location is fantastic: a 3-minute walk to the beach (with lifeguards), a short drive to Balboa Island, Huntington Beach and a large, upscale shopping mall with movie theaters. Important: the rental includes a dedicated (guaranteed) parking space right in front of the unit. Parking on the peninsula is in scarce supply, so having a parking space we could count on was very much appreciated.
The unit is very quiet. We left our windows open every night and never heard a sound from the street. We spent a few hours with Judi and her son Scott, who took us on a Duffy boat ride around the harbor. It was relaxing and fun.
Be aware that there are steep stairs leading up to the unit from street level. The unusually-shaped shower was mentioned by a previous reviewer.
The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, the second bedroom has a queen-sized bed, and the living room has a sleeper sofa.
If you're looking for a wonderful place to stay in a beautiful location, with gracious and kind hosts, book this rental!
