Great space! So close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed at our fingertips! The property supplied a surplus of beach toys and boogie boards. Our kids were in heaven! Several restaurants within walking distance were so delicious. The beds were comfortable, and we had plenty of space to relax and unwind. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

A very comfortable apartment with all amenities

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable vacation apartment with seemingly all amenities, from the big, like a washer and drier and A/C to the seemingly minor like a variety of DVDs, and a stunning range of beach equipment. The superb access to the beach goes without saying. There are good restaurants within walking distance. This is the third year we have stayed in a HappiTravels vacation apartment and it will not be the last.

Cozy Beach House...Just a short walk to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great last minute get away! The house was well maintained. Rolo & Michele were great to work with. Rolo was there to greet us and give a rundown on the property. They were quick to respond to our needs. We rented the upper unit. They have plenty of beach equipment and bikes to ride. Nice neighborhood. Would rent again.

Our home by the sea! The best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We love our home by the sea so much! This is our sixth time back. It's the perfect location and so clean! Michelle and the whole HappiTravels family take such good care of us!

Every morning we walk on the beach and almost always see dolphins!

We want to have a family reunion and rent all six HappiTravels properties as they'll all nextstore to each other.

It's just the best vacation ever!!!

Truly a great place! So convenient to food, fun and beach!

  • 5 of 5

Such a great experience start to finish!

I was in a rush booking a place since my previous housing fell through at the last moment. Michelle quickly saw my request and the narrow timing and called me up. We traded info so that I could get her place booked within the hour. SO GLAD WE DID!

The place was exactly as presented here. We were the upper unit, so if you have mobility issues check out one of Michelle's other properties. For us though, it was perfect.

Street parking in the area is difficult so the garage was a nice feature. Its snug fit so big vehicle might not fit, but we had friends come for drinks on Friday night and they didn't have trouble finding street parking- so it is do-able.

The patio was lovely, under what may be one of the only non-palm trees in Newport Beach. So nice to be out as the sun goes down, with the other neighbors on the street doing the same. While no view... you can honestly walk to the front gate and be at the beach in less than 5 minutes.

The house comes complete with everything you would need to make your beach time a blast! Beach chairs, boogie boards, pails, shovels, towels... you name it, its supplied. Even with our busy schedule we found time every day to go down and enjoy the beach.

The house its self is also very nice and well equipped. I've stayed in other VRBOs that had basic starter supplies. But Michelle supplied everything but food and beverages! There is a washing/dryer is in the garage, we didn't use it but all the laundry supplies were there as well. We called Rollo when we were finishing our shopping and we met for a walk around the place. He is a great asset for property management. He talked about the place, and the surrounding attractions with some hilarious stories. He made sure we had his number and left saying several times "call if you need anything". Michelle text several times asking if everything was going well and just made me feel that she was invested in us having a great stay.

On Saturday, when it was time to go... we went to the beach in the morning and then spent the time dragging our feet because none of us wanted to leave.

I know when you leave feedback... there should be something that you could suggest changing...honestly I can't think of a thing! All of us so enjoyed our time there. It is a terrific place, well managed and will be on my return list!

Thanks for everything Michelle and Rollo!

  • 5 of 5

Ruth and I really enjoyed the close proximity to the beach and board walk. The property was awesome to stay at and the accommodations were great with the garage for parking even though it would allow for compact vehicles only, it was really great not having to find a parking spot on the street. We also had the ability to do laundry if needed. Nice kitchen to cook meals and full refrigerator to accommodate food and beverages. There were lots of restaurants around the area. All were within 1 mile of the property. The only downside was the sharing of the outside patio but we were able to enjoy for two days. Overall I would recommend this property. Our TV was not working but Michelle and Rollo took care of it immediately.
