Excellent location and layout for family!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place that looks at both the bay and from the 2nd and 3rd floor the ocean. Kevin Forbes was very accommodating and it was just such a great getaway for a family. Wonderful!

Beautiful property with plenty of space and amazing location.

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay. My only justification for 4 stars instead of 5, and really I would make it 4.5 if I could, is that our check-in was delayed by over an hour due to cleaning and then the sheets were still damp, likely because they were trying to hurry. Honestly it was a minor thing considering how lovely this beach house is. Kevin provided everything we needed for a family getaway to the beach. We would definitely stay again.

Very comfortable, clean, bright home

  • 5 of 5

This home is a wonderful place to stay. It is very spacious and clean. It has a homey environment and Kevin is a very friendly host. It is located almost right in between the Newport and Balboa piers and has easy access to both the ocean and the bay.

It is 3 levels, with the downstairs having a a bed and desk, great for kids to hang out and sleep. The 2nd level has the kitchen, bathroom, dining and living area (with a couch and TV), and patio. It is very open with lots of windows and light. The blinds are good tho and darken things up nicely if needed. There is a murphy bed that is very comfortable. The bathroom is in great shape and the water pressure is good. The kitchen area is open and has basic necessities. The top level has a very comfortable bed and another TV.

A couple of things to know....

1. The kitchen is stocked with plates, cups, glasses, but everything is breakable so if you have kids you might want to bring some non-breakable kitchen ware. Also, there is a BBQ on the patio that is in good shape, and there are some utensils to use but, strictly speaking they aren't BBQ utensils so you might want to bring those along as well.

2. The upper level has a pretty steep staircase up to it, it's not a lot of steps but it is winding. There is a hand rail and post to hang on to, but just something to be aware of for those you might feel a little unsure on their feet.

I would highly recommend this home for anyone looking for a comfortable family vacation.

Beautiful rental for small group

  • 3 of 5

This property is well done. Nice lay-out and up-to-date furnishings. Because of its location on the bay side and main living on the second level, we found it was not a rental for entertaining. Frequent noise complaints from neighbors and an owner who counted the number of guests in person made for a stressful Fourth of July experience. Great place for a family with 2 or 3 kids.

Great location and space for a group

  • 5 of 5

We are a family with preteens, so we enjoyed the separate spaces and floors for the rooms. A few of the beds were pull outs but we all slept well in the comfy fresh white linens and blankets, pretty quiet neighborhood. Be aware of the stairs and small bathroom, but not a problem for us. So great to walk one block to the beach or bay. Bayside has a lovely, clean sand and water, baby beach that is protected from the wind and a floating platform to swim out to. Plenty of towels and some beach gear was helpful. Owner was easy to reach via text.
