About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Rental ID: NB11435A (sleeps 8)

Permit #SLP10822

Located 1/2 block from the sand and boardwalk, this lower unit of our vacation rental duplex is within reach of the area's best beachfront and ocean recreation Newport Beach has to offer: great waves for the accomplished surfer, yet gentle shorelines for the youngest sandcastle builder.

The 3 bedroom 2 bathroom downstairs unit offers an ocean view from its oversized patio which has ample shaded seating and barbeque grill for outdoor family meals. All three bedrooms contain wood-shutter window coverings, ceiling fans, and are well-appointed, clean, and bright. The master bedroom is furnished with a king bed and has its own private bathroom. The other bedrooms each contain a queen bed.Two twin-sized tri-fold sleeping mats are also provided with linens.

During the Winter (Off-Season) months, this vacation home can be rented as a 3, 2 or 1 bedroom unit. Rates vary based on the configuration.

Please refer to the "Additional information about rental rates" section of this listing.

PARKING: 1 space provided in shared double carport, accommodates most vehicles (some SUV's). Garage dimensions are 83" H and double wide. Available general neighborhood parking can also be utilized (metered and unmetered).

Due to the moderate coastal climate, this house (like most in the area) DOES NOT have air conditioning.

Check-in time: 3 p.m. on the arrival date

Check-out time: 10 a.m. on the departure date

Great location! Sub par in the details

  • 2 of 5

The location couldn’t be better. A block from the beach and restaurants are within walking distance if you don’t mind walking (we didn’t). Great area to stay if you want to do Disneyland AND the beach but not be in Anaheim which is what we wanted.

We needed to go to rental office for keys which was odd because every other rental I’ve had a representative met us at the house. So be ready to get addresses for both the office and the house. Parking is very tight. It’s an old neighborhood with tiny garages, small homes so parking is minimal BUT we always found a spot. One set of our keys did not work which we unfortunately found out after some of our party left an event early, only to return to the house to just sit outside-locked out.

We had 8 people and bedding for 7 beds. One of my kids had a hodge podge of bedding to make it comfortable but you would think if it says 8 people can sleep here there would be enough bedding. All the bath towels were stuffed into a laundry basket in the dining room (weird) and we had to put them in the bathrooms. Also you have to purchase your own toilet paper?

They were remodeling the unit upstairs and we were given zero notice of this, aside from the morning they started and we heard bangs above us. The owner then came down from upstairs to say they were remodeling (no kidding?)

Nice lady but she hung around around our front patio area A LOT and everyone in our family was like “what is she doing?” It was really weird. I was getting ready in the bedroom and I watched her stand in the front patio area while the family was trying to get ready for the day. Pretty intrusive if you ask me.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Everything was clean and comfortable. Fantastic location. What a relief to not have to load up in a van with sand all over! We just showered off in their outdoor shower and entered through the side bathroom door. We loved the board games and books provided. The staff were super attentive to whatever was needed (they immediately replaced a worn out kettle and butcher knife). The only thing beyond their control was the noisy footsteps and talking from the tenants upstairs, so good sleep was an issue. Bring a white noise machine if that bothers you. Overall a fantastic family getaway!

Great house-Lousy beach amenities

  • 4 of 5

Location is perfect. House set up is great. Very disappointed with the provided beach towels, beach chairs & umbrella!!!!! The chairs were rusty little cheap ones, the towels were tiny, faded old rags, and the umbrella was broken & wouldn't be worthy to use as a personal rain umbrella let alone a beach umbrella. So besides the beach amenities: the house, beds & linens, bathrooms & bath towels and kitchen essentials, it's a great beach rental house. I would rent this unit again. But newer beach towels & chairs are really requested!!!!

Owner's Response: We have brand new beach towels arriving any minute - they were on order at the time of this reservation; blessing & a curse that all our properties were fully booked and the beach towel supply was minimal! Our apologies! In addition, new beach chairs have been installed. We no longer supply beach umbrellas as they constantly break in the wind with each use. We ask all guests to notify us right away if any supplies need repair or replacement; unfortunately, these folks didn't inform us until their departure, which left us without any recourse for them. We love to be proactive immediately with any issues!

Beautiful home!

My family rented both upstairs and downstairs and had a great time.

Wish we had better weather but it was still a great time.
