Wonderful Newport Local Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 loved our visit during the winter holiday break at Gary's great getaway, situated in a wonderful Newport location. We felt like locals – enjoying walking 2 blocks away from the sandy white beach & boardwalk, riding nearby rental bikes on the bike path, and being walking distance to restaurants and cafes and even Pavilions grocery store for home-cooking, easy access to surfing lessons at Huntington and hiking at Crystal Cove. This 3 bedroom brightly lit upper unit had a comfortable feel with the hardwood floors, outside decks and comfy beds with good linens. The covered parking spot and safe neighborhood for our teenage girls to explore were key. Gary was the host of the most – giving us a great orientation to the area & its Lido Marina, Wedge, Balboa Island and was so responsive to all our needs from inquiry to arrival and checkout. Many thanks, Gary, for our great stay to your lovely home!

Great house! Close to the Beach

  • 4 of 5

We came to Newport for my cousins wedding and found staying at this house, instead of a hotel, a much better alternative. The house is clean and quite comfortable for 2 families. The house does not have central air, which was not an issue at night because we opened all the windows and had fans, but during the day, the house was a bit uncomfortable. From what I am told, not many houses have central air. The only negative, was that amount of noise during the day from a neighbor blasting his music each day which made it difficult for my 15 month old to take a nap since we had to keep the windows open.

The owner, Gary, was very attentive, even from overseas! The location was perfect! An easy walk to the beautiful beach and a short walk to the pier. The grocery store was also in walking distance. Oh, parking spaces are hard to come by but the property has a parking space in the back of the house.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay! Newport Beach is a beautiful place with lots of activities, friendly people, and great weather!!

Fun weekend Newport will stay in Gary's beach cottage again!!

  • 4 of 5

Location was great. Furniture outside needs to be replaced, couldn't sit in half of the chairs. Would love if there were a few amenities in the kitchen like garbage bag, paper towel roll, sponge. We left all of those things behind so hopefully the next person enjoyed. Didn't bring beach towels but loved the one we were given. Will come back again, just some feedback of

How it could have been 5 stars. Burr White was awesome as well. Love the bucket of stuff and the bag, nice touches. Should have booked for next year but forgot. Thanks

Owner's Response: Glad to know that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your instructive comments. Seems there was damage done to the outside furniture during the summer season. My Apologies. All of the damaged patio furniture has since been either replaced or had new slings added to be like new. Also, new kitchen amenities have been restocked. Again glad to know that you enjoyed your stay.

Great beach location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay with everything we needed. We loved being in walking distance to the beach. The place needs a little updating and parking is a challenge if you have more than 1 car but overall I would recommend Gary's place.

Beautifully decorated 3 bedroom beach house with view of ocean and surrounding area from multiple de

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this beautifully decorated 3 bedroom beach house . When we first saw house from outside we thought it was small,but was pleasantly surprised when we entered . It was so huge inside and exceptionally clean. We came for our daughters wedding and had company from out of town during day and into evenings . This house had a perfect layout for entertaining , and was walking distance to beach, grocery store, restaurants and other shops . We didn't even rent a car for everything was so close and lyft/ uber were available if we needed to go out of area. Our daughter and son in law were able to use carport when they came to visit. We will surely love to rent this house again in future!

Clean, comfortable place with a great location and a great owner

  • 5 of 5

Everything went very smoothly thanks to Gary.

The place is beautiful, clean and only a block from the beach, with a nice view from the balconies.

Nice apple TV/blueray/cable setup.

Awesome location just steps away from fun, good and groceries.

Gary was courteous and responsive throughout.
