Charming cottage in the perfect location at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO and I will definitely do it again. I am very choosy about where we take our family vacations because I want them to be fun for everyone in the family and low stress! The owners here had great instructions and were very responsive to our questions. We rented the upper unit of the cottage and it was clean, bright, private, and so cute. We never heard the guests in the lower unit. We had our teenage boys with us, and they had their own twin beds instead of having to share. The upper unit has 2 bathrooms which were very clean and updated. The boys could take off on the bikes provided in the garage and head to the pier, Balboa Island, even Little Corona Del Mar. We rented extra bikes at the pier as well. We actually rarely used the car! The beach is a very short walk so we could boogie board and then head in to grill on the deck and then back to the beach. It was exactly what we hoped for!

Wonderful spot near the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, bright, comfortable vacation home in a fabulous location two blocks from the beach. The property owner, George, was quick to respond and pleasant to work with. My family felt that our trip to Newport was extra special staying there. We plan to return on our next trip!

Exactly as advertised!

  • 4 of 5

This beach house is exactly as it is advertised. The price is great for the location. Having the beach towels, beach toys and bikes is a nice bonus. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because there are no black out shades in the bedrooms. We were up by 5:30 each morning.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. Yes, our unit is bright and airy and gets a lot of light. The bedrooms do have blinds, but they don't provide a complete blackout, as some hotel rooms do. Your are the first guests that have commented on that. Thanks again for choosing our unit. We're glad you had a great time and enjoyed the location and amenities of our unit. George

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Cozy space on the 2nd floor so u can actually see the waves crashing from the right side of the deck. The amount of space was perfect with everything you need. The master bath seemed remodeled and very clean, well everything was clean! Wasn't sure exactly how close the house was from the ocean but it worked out perfect you are literally steps maybe 1-2 minutes if that. There's a path on 49th that gives you direct access to the ocean which was perfect. We LOVED the space and recommend the location if your not looking for the overly crowdedness of the pier/main beach area.

Loved this cute 2 bedroom spacious living space just steps from the beach. Had a great patio to sit out and feel the fresh air. Had everything we needed from towels to bikes and paper towels! The owner was very flexible and responded quickly to messages. Will definitely stay here again!
