This spacious upstairs 3-bedroom/2 bathroom vacation home is located in the heart of of the Newport Beach Peninsula, just a few steps from great amenities & the BEACH.
The rental was great! We really had a wonderful time. Having the beach so close was a lot of fun, we saw dolphins both days we spent at the beach. We were careful to follow all the directions prior to leaving, though there were two windows that would not lock after multiple tries. Thanks so much and please let me know if there was any charges to the deposit. We would love to come stay again sometime! Thank you!
ps everyone loved the beach decore throughout the house.
I'll be frank and to the point with my review to help others make an informed decision with my detailed thoughts:
Property management team, great to work with, made things easy and was flexible with us to accommodate our arrival time.
Property was stocked with towels and kitchen ware.
The living room tv was nice
The entire property itself, less the issues I'm listing below was just fine. It was a cute and quaint beach house, park across the street and near the pier.
The property itself, Is much smaller than the pictures so be sure to look at the square footage. The pictures and color, in my opinion made the property look really amazing and not that it wasn't a nice property, it just was not as wow as depicted.
The property definitely served it's purpose in terms of rooms and beds but it is so outdated. The washer/dryer was from the 80's and the date on there, actually said 1980. We were afraid to use it in the event it ruined our clothes, but that's just personal preference. The carper could use a good clean as you can tell walking on the carpet that it felt gritty. The garage is not level so be sure to rent an automatic because if you have a stick shift, you will have a hard time reversing as your car will want to roll forward.
The biggest complaint we have is the keys and garage opener provided. We had 4 adults with us and it became an inconvenience when folks wanted to do their own thing because we only had 1 garage opener and 2 keys to the house. Would be great to have extra so everyone can do as they please and not have to stick together or meet up.
Overall, I'd stay here again but I'd be more mindful of who I'm traveling with to ensure we are not short on keys, parking spaces etc. And if the appliances were updated, I'd love to use the washer etc if needed.
We truly enjoyed our stay here. It would be really hard to beat the location with it's proximity to the Pier, Restaurants and most importantly the Sand.We stayed for 18 nights and really could have gone without a car for the majority of our stay. Thank You Beachview Realty for a seamless transaction and stay.
I have stayed in this area before, which I like because it is easily walkable to the beach (no crossing Balboa Boulevard), but not right by the busy pier or waterfront boardwalk, and you get a nice view of the new, beautiful Marina Park.
The rental management company was pretty responsive, like when I couldn't locate fans or the rental bikes at first. They also arranged to have a bike company drop off bikes, and the price was better than if I rented locally. The negative was that the next door neighbor got mad at us because the bike rental company had left the bikes blocking the pathway between houses (apparently this happens a lot). I told the rental company and they seemed not to care, so you can be prepared to get a similar neighbor interaction if you rent bikes.
The apartment itself was spacious. I didn't like how they set up the living room - they put the television in front of the window with the great view of the bay/marina so it blocks the view AND you can't open that window to get air flow. The fans they provided were filthy with dust and one rattled so much I couldn't use it because it made too much noise.
Generally the apartment was in decent shape and had plates, utensils, cookingware, some clean but not very fluffy towels. They also provided beach towels and many beach chairs and boogie boards which was really nice, along with a lot of toys and games for the kids. You should bring your own shampoo, etc., which is to be expected, but they do give you with a starting set of toilet paper and some folks left behind laundry detergent. It's an old apartment, though, and without upgraded finishes. The floor felt a bit sandy and there was sand in the (very old) laundry machines but it's a beach place so to be expected. And the water pressure was VERY low. We also never got hot water, it was at best warm, but the rental company said later we could have called them to ask them to adjust the water.
Overall I would have to give this property a 3 star rating. It was certainly clean, spacious, and conveniently located to the beach. And, although not alot of time was a tually spent int the unit itself, what time that was probably for the better. The living room furniture (sofas) were not very comfortable. They felt somewhat run down and seriously worn. Dining room table and chairs were comfortable for a time, but don't try to use the dining room table as work space...for that, it is not very comfortable. Beds were more comfortable which made rest possible. Could not get the outside lights, coming up the steps, to work so we came home in the dark. Carrying an arm full of groceries could be a little sketchy. Parking in the garage was fine, sxcept you had to get out of the car to open and close the garage door. Electronic openers were either not working or not available. Other small nuances but not too ridiculous to make mention of.
Bottom line is: would I stay there again? Yes, but I would ask them to make sure things were in working order and would request automatic garage door openers, etc...
No complaints from our party of 7-plenty of room, close walk to the beach & pier. Nice park/bay across the street. Garage was nice due to parking out front is sometimes hard to find.
