On a scale of 1-10, I rate this a 2!!
If you are looking for a busy party scene this is your place. But if you have a family I would not recommend. Place was unclean and not kept up. The fan in the kitchen area had an inch of dust and there was still Taco Bell cups/wrappers behind one of the beds. Cabinets were broke, fan/light in bedroom broke, limited toilet paper, towels, blankets. Refrigerator would not cool and coffee pot was filthy. Parking was tight and you have to tiny parking spot in a shared garage. This is a shared unit with owner, the owner occupies the 2nd tier of the floor and shares the rooftop which was clearly communicated once we arrived and decided to eat dinner on the rooftop. Partying on the street continued throughout the night and no AC in the place so you have to keep windows open and hear everything! I would not recommend to families who are expecting a nice clean, quite getaway near the beach. head to Laguna or pay more to get better quality.
Great location, but could use some work
First the good things: We stayed here in July and the location is perfect. Super close to the beach, walking distance to so many good restaurants and shops. Newport Beach and Balboa are awesome. The unit also has a parking space which is so helpful and needful in busy Newport. The bedrooms have new room-darkening shades which are great.
What was disappointing was the condition of the unit. There was a layer of dust on everything, including the walls, vents, ceiling fans, and refrigerator. Light bulbs were missing everywhere and a lamp was missing a shade. The carpet on the stairs is filthy and there are random nails in the walls and lots of nail holes that need filling and paint. There was a used bar of soap in the shower and the shower curtain and rings were gross and rusty. There was a missing towel rod in the downstairs bathroom so there was nowhere to hang towels in the bathroom. The baseboards and doors had lots of built up dust and grime. It seemed like the unit wasn't quite ready to be rented out and needs a thorough deep clean. Some small touches would go a long way. Compared to other rentals on VRBO we have stayed in, this definitely didn't measure up, cleanliness wise. If you're ok with that, this is a great place to stay.
Check in was easy and Joe went out of his way to get us in a little early. House has everything you need. Rooftop area is great with plenty of seating! Location is amazing. Simple walk to sand, bars, restaurants and pier. Joe was a fantastic and friendly host!
Great hosts, responded quickly to any inquiries. Great central location and quiet at the same time. We will return for a future family get together.
