Property description

If you like to stroll, hike, run, bike or swim in the ocean, this newly remodeled condo is close to the beach, parks, running and bike trails. Just under two miles to the beach, you’ll be steps away from Fairview Park and Talbert Nature Preserve in Costa Mesa. You’ll be 5 miles from Huntington Beach Pier; 7 miles from Balboa Island; 14 miles from the art colony of Laguna Beach, and only 13 miles from Disneyland. What are you waiting for?
The “Mermaid Lounge” has kitchen, living/dining area, two bedrooms, a full bath (Jack and Jill) and a half bath downstairs. With tile throughout, it’s okay if you bring in a little beach sand. Upstairs there’s new carpeting in the loft next to the walk-in closet and a ¾ bath. According to VRBO, the average hotel room is 325 sq. ft. Here you can bring your groceries and spread out in about 1,300 sq. ft. Just right for a maximum of 6 guests. Master bedroom has a king size bed, loft has a queen size, and the “surf room” has a daybed plus room for a twin bed or two small beds for little ones. The kitchen provides what you need for preparing meals with mostly new appliances; use spices or anything you can find there. The washer and dryer are just around the corner in the hallway where you'll find all the laundry supplies you will need.
Clean, uncluttered and comfortable, you can unwind here or scurry off to your choice of Southern California attractions. You may even want to sign up for sailing lessons at the Orange Coast College School of Sailing and Seamanship whether you are just starting or have sailed before. You don’t have to leave Newport Bay to enjoy a fabulous day on the water.
Head through Fairview Park and down the hill to pick up the Santa Ana River Bicycle Trail. Turn left and you’re at the beach in about 2.5 miles. Or, turn right and bike the rest of the 30 mile trail to Riverside County.
Surf lessons? We can refer you to our favorite instructors. Model airplane enthusiast? There is a flying field (electric only) in Fairview Park.
Oh, and if you play the piano …bring your music because we have one here!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Grandma, girlfriend, sailor, traveler, retired Sales Manager, I am rarely home so why not share a nice place to stay for travelers. At various times my guy, family and I have used VRBO to enjoy the country from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, to Bend,Oregon. We enjoy the weather here the most; it is nearly perfect year round. And, there are so many things to do!

Why the Owner Chose Westside Costa Mesa, Costa Mesa, CA, USA:
Close to the beach, sailing, and many attractions, one of my favorite things about my property is that it nestled among the trees in a quiet, safe complex with very nice neighbors.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Guests have use of my California State Beach Parking Pass. This may be used as many times per day as you wish each day at the nearest beach, Huntington State Beach. If you pay per visit without a pass, the fee is $12.00 - $15.00. It may also be used at many California State Beaches. There is a charge if pass is lost or stolen.
