Why Kimberlee Vandenakker chose Newport Beach

The property location is ideal for fun in the sun! Great public beach a block away with soft sand and friendly water. Close to all the activities and fun Newport is known for, plus the convenience of a very close grocery store (Pavillions), pubs, bank, dry cleaners and laundry mat. Beautiful sunsets too!

What makes this cottage unique

A new addition for the Springr of 2016 - rent the upstairs unit- a studio with a view and upgraded décor VRBO #811145). Exceptional service and hospitality. Let us know if you are celebrating something special, we will be happy to arrange for flowers, champagne or anything we can do. If you need a ride from John Wayne airport, just ask. If we can manage it, we will! You really do not need a car in Newport Beach. Check our reviews and see what some of guests have had to say!

Loved it and can't wait to rent it again!

  • 5 of 5

This place is so cute and John and Kim were the best hosts. They have everything you need for the beach including Tommy Bahama chairs, umbrella, and towels. They are easy to grab and walk to the beach and make it the perfect relaxing, fun, beach scenario. They also have cute, fun beach cruisers you can use and provide locks for them. You can also use the grill in the back and eat out on the front patio on a nice big table. The cottage is so dang cute and just matches the vibes of the beach! And it has everything you need including coffee for the keurig maker. The air conditioner in the bedroom makes it nice and chilled while you sleep. It was hot and muggy while we were there and it was a life saver! I really can't say enough good things about this place. You just can't beat the location as well! Thank you so much John and Kim! We had the best time! We will be back soon! ~Juju

Beautiful property and amazing loaction!

  • 5 of 5

This property is so beautiful and is an amazing loaction just steps away from the beach! The home has all the ammenities you need plus more... And also had very charming touches like a guest book where people recount their experiences and offer suggestions for your optimal trip! The inside of the home is beautifully decorated with a relaxed beach design, very clean and so comfortable! The owners are so hospitable and kind and provide everything anyone would need to enjoy a beach vacation! I would more than 100% recomend this property to a couple looking to get a way and enjoy the peaceful beach life!

Fantastic little property in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We come to Newport often, but have never stayed overnight down here. This was the perfect little place for our anniversary trip. I must have mentioned that because there were flowers, chocolates and a nice card to great us at check-in! The house is very clean and perfectly maintained. You can tell the owners really take pride in it.

The beach is so close, and everything you need is available to use: beach chairs (the nice backpack ones that make it easy to carry everything), towels and umbrellas. Everything else is close by too. We parked the car and never moved it our whole time there. The grocery store is one street over, more top-notch dining spots were within less than a 10 minute walk than we had time to try.

Also available are beach cruiser bikes, which was great. We used them every day to go all over Newport.

I could go on and on. This is a great place that I hope to book again some time soon.

A big THANK YOU to the owners who made this a memorable trip!

The Perfect Newport Beach Home!

This is absolutely the best place to stay in Newport Beach. The location is perfect, the house is very spacious and comfortable, and it comes stocked with beach essentials (towels, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, bikes, etc.).
