Best location and view!!

  • 4 of 5

This condo was right on the beach and walking distance to shops, restaurants, bike rentals, coffee shops...anything!

The space was comfortable for my family, but the condo could use some updating. Doug was wonderful and quick to respond to any questions we had.

I highly recommend this place if you want an incredible location on Newport Beach :)

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect location....beginning every day with a beautiful sunrise and ending every day with a beautiful sunset. in the hours in between, beach, walk, bike or take a short ride to many area attractions. This is a quaint beachfront 1st floor. If you're looking for modern amenities, this is not the place for you. But if you're a beach lover looking for a spot on the beach and walking distance to shops, restaurants, cafes, a weekend farmer's market outside your door and a beautiful pier then look no further. Doug is very accommodating and available for any needs. We had a great week!!

Will definitely rent again. This lower unit duplex is only steps away from all that Newport has to offer. Clean and simple accommodations. Great owner who cares about your stay and experience.

Great Location. Great Hosts.

  • 5 of 5

I would start with the rental but the brilliance and hospitality of Doug and Sandi exceeded what we could have hoped for in our rental hosts. They worked with us each step of the way to make this trip possible. The location of this property could not be better. We enjoyed being able to have instant beach access. Everything inside worked was just as it looked and was advertised. I would highly recommend staying at this rental!!

Thanks again Doug and Sandi.

Perfect location !

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this home for our Valentines getaway. Everything was exactly as described. The unit is steps away from the beach as well as great food places and shops. The coffee spot is awesome and is literally around the corner. We will be bringing our kids back.
