Please be sure to CONTACT US DIRECTLY in order to discuss your holiday dates and rates. It's always our pleasure to speak to visitors of our site! Come spoil yourself and enjoy the enchanting Southern California island lifestyle from this lovely Lido Isle residence. This remodeled 2,980 sf home is situated on a private, oversized lot, ensuring utmost comfort. The downstairs opens up to a rare uncovered, outdoor garden and patio that include seating, BBQ, and space perfect for outdoor entertaining, dining alfresco, or simply relaxing.

Tastefully decorated and upgraded throughout, with terracotta pavers and custom stonework, this wonderful home incorporates warmth and charm while offering the finest in beach living. The home includes 4 bedrooms - a spacious master suite with a private terrace, including sitting area, two full-queen rooms, and a fourth room with twin beds - renovated spa bathrooms, a dining, living, and family room, wet bar, and a handsomely appointed gourmet kitchen with modern appliances essential for whipping up that perfect meal.

For the active, the water is across the street, where you can swim, boat, or SUP while your children swing from the fully equipped and updated playground, or a friend can pick you and your loved ones up on the private dock! Lido Isle hosts two other private beaches, including the San Remo beach, which includes a delicious snack bar, protected swimming area, and water slide, for young and old alike! And when your fingers and toes need a break from the water, or if you are an avid tennis player, one need only walk down the strada (private walkway) just outside the backyard to find one of three private Lido Isle tennis courts. When the hunger finally sets in or it's time for grocery, surf, or clothing shopping, world-famous, waterfront restaurants and shops are just a 7 minute walk away in the Cannery and Lido Island Villages - simply breathtaking!

The island location is conveniently located minutes away from Highway 1 (Pacific Coast Highway) and the 405 San Diego Freeway, which take you south to San Diego - and Sea World! - Mexico and famous surf spots, or north to Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Carmel, and San Francisco. Just off the 73 Freeway and a mere 7 minutes drive from the home you will find Internationally-renowned South Coast Plaza, an indoor shopping mall with high-fashion retailers and restaurants, but if you are looking for a fun way to spend the day outside, but dry!, Fashion Island is Newport Beach's most famous outdoor mall and only 5 minutes south on the beautiful Pacific Coast Highway.

Laguna Beach - where the show 'The OC' was filmed! - Corona del Mar, and numerous other hidden beach gems are just past Fashion Island along Pacific Coast Highway. There, more charming boutiques and delicious restaurants and patisseries that line the coast - a must visit location just minutes away.

This Lido Isle home is truly paradise because, while you have every Southern California attraction at your fingertips, some within minutes away, at the end of your day, you cross two bridges and end up in in your lovely, tranquil, private oasis from where you can peacefully watch the sunsets, sailboats, and kayakers with a tropical delight in hand!

Just beyond the house (1 block) is the local rental shop for paddle boards and kayaking - just rent and plop right into the ocean! In the evenings, the local gondolas provide a very romantic and scenic tour of the islands and the beaches - almost like Venice but without the tourists!!

Luxurious Island Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Booking this piece of paradise is highly recommended! After an exhaustive search of many properties, we selected this property for a very special multi-generational family vacation. (Group of 7, ages 4-77). We wanted to create closeness, but also allow for privacy, and luxury, but also to feel close to the natural surroundings. This home exceeded our highest expectations in all areas. The layout is thoughtful, with families in mind. Quality, tasteful and comfortable decor and furnishings throughout and appliances top notch. Beautifully decorated, no detail was spared. The kitchen is modern and well stocked with new, high-end appliances and the bathrooms sparkle with luxury. All towels and linens are 5 stars. In and out there are cozy nooks and places to enjoy the sea salt air while reading, entertaining, or enjoying intimate conversations. Extra touches throughout reflect pride of ownership. Optimal location for exploring all of Newport and surrounding beaches, but tucked away in a secure and safe, quiet residential area so you feel like you almost have your own private island! Owners Gigi and Nicole were responsive, and warm and really committed to ensuring we enjoyed our stay, which we all certainly did. It felt almost like borrowing a good friend's vacation home, which we plan to do, again, soon!!!

Island Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We are traveling from Provence, France. Your house is magnifique! It is a long way for us from France, but well worth the trip! The furnishings in your home were exquisite and elegant - wonderful coordinated decor. This house was even more beautiful than the pictures we see on the internet. The home was extremely clean and everything we needed. It really fit our entire family very comfortable. We spent our time on the beach, body surfing, biking, kayaking, surfing, walking, relaxing on the patio, and entertaining friends and family from France that also visited your area. We enjoyed the nearby restaurants that we walked to from the house - especially the Cannery and Sabatinos. My husband really liked the large flat screen TV in the master and I loved the quality beds and linens and fabulous kitchen. Many nights we ate dinner outside in the private enclosed patio for bar-b-que. At sunset, we enjoyed the view from the second story veranda. We had a nice and relaxed vacation and the weather was excellent. This home is in a quiet street but you are close to all the activities so we enjoyed the best of both worlds. We highly recommend this property. So much better than a hotel. No comparison. Thank you! We will visit again - Merci Beaucoup!

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this comfortable home in a perfect location. A short bike ride to the beach, and our kids were jumping off the "Jaws" bridge! My daughter especially liked the shopping and the charm of Lido and the peninsula, within easy walking distance from the house - we walked to great cafes, the Lido theatre - and our favorite- Bear Flag for fresh sushi almost every day. We cooked lobsters and steaks, grilled outside, and enjoyed meals outdoors on the enclosed comfy patio. The kitchen is spacious and fully equipped. The beds are very comfortable, as is the living room and family room. The house comes completely equipped with everything you need for the beach - toys, towels, snorkel gear, boogie boards, umbrellas & chairs, you get the idea. A spacious back yard offers plenty of room to throw a ball around and play games with the kids. Between the great shopping just a few minutes away and Fashion Island and South Coast Plaza, and the great privacy of the island, we are looking forward to coming back next summer!

Gem on Lido Island!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this Lido Island property for our family reunion/summer holiday - all 8 of us. I have to say that the pictures on HomeAway don't do this amazing home justice! It's obvious when you walk through the door that the owner put a lot of love into the home - every finish is upscale and the decor and setting is very pristine. The house is perfect for large groups - enough space to spread out and get away if you want to.

The kitchen is well stocked and each of the bedrooms had comfortable beds and pillows. If you have a NetFlix account you can sign in to watch your movies. Our kids enjoyed using the outdoor shower after long days at the beach.

The house is off the beaten path - very private island. Kids enjoyed seeing the paddle boarding and kayaking which is right next to the property and also renting duffy boats. We had a blast on the gondola rides which reminded us of Venice.

Our favorite restaurant, steps off the island was the Bear Flag Fish- great seafood at reasonable prices. Place your order at the counter, then go grab a seat at one of the picnic tables outside or inside at the sushi counter.

The owner exceeded our expectations and is a really nice. All emails were answered quickly, met us at the house when we arrived, and was available during our stay via text.

If you're thinking about staying here and see that it's available - BOOK IT - you'll have a stay you'll never forget.

Gorgeous clean beach family vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a gem, nestled among other beautiful homes on Lido Island. Ideal for a family, it's just across the street from a private beach and playground for the kids and adults can take advantage of the docks and SUP rentals. In addition to the upstairs master BR, there are three other BRs that share a Jack and Jill bath and nice shower. Of course, the master BR has its own large bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and an attached cedar closet. The bathroom heater was especially welcome on a chilly November morning.

We've stayed in many vacation rental homes but this one was the most immaculately clean that I've ever seen. There was not one spot of dust on any surface. The spaces are comfortable and very nicely decorated. The linens are first-rate, too.

Most importantly the owner was very responsive to all emails and questions. She answered every email, phone call or text within minutes and made sure we all had the best time.

Will definitely be back and have already referred family and friends!

Thanks again!

Spring is $4950, roughly $6,000 less than what you'd pay for a similar size villa at the nearby Pelican Hill Resort. Instead of living at a hotel, you have a 4 Bedroom, 3,200 sq feet inside & you can visit the resort absolutely free. Going the beach? The house is equipped with everything you need. 4 Beach chairs, Umbrella, 2 Boogie Boards, beach towels, & a small cooler to take to the beach with you! Smoking Question?

Our big backyard allows for you or anyone you travel w/ to smoke outside. We have no problems with that. There is absolutely no smoking inside the home.

Maid Service...If you need maid service while you are there, just let me know and I can arrange to have my regular cleaning people to come by (we have the house cleaned every two weeks)&make sure the house is spotless while you are out of the house enjoying the area. The house will be cleaned right before you arrive. The neighborhood is like living in a nice resort.

At the tip of the island is the Lido Theatre for movies located right next to Starbucks. Also, at the tip of the island is kayak and paddle board rentals. You can also rent a gondola with a gondolier for a romantic sunset harbor cruise & our of the bay and islands. Not to mention that within walking or biking distance is the world famous Newport Beach Jetty for a day of sun, surfing and just relaxing. (There is a bike rental shop a couple of blocks from the property, just off the island.) Lots to do for kids and adults. If you feel like staying close to the house, there are 2 private beaches on the island. One is fully equipped with playground equipment for the kids. The other beach has a snack bar, thatched umbrellas, and a water slide anchored just feet from the sand - just take towels and add our sunshine! :-)
