Newport Beach, California is a world-renowned coastal resort area with miles of picture-postcard beaches and a 10,000-slip harbor that is one of the world's premier yacht moorages. The city is home to more than 70,000 permanent residents and the population swells to more than 100,000 in the summer. The temperate climate, with average highs in the 80's in the summer and the 60's in the winter, makes outdoor recreation like golf, tennis an deep sea fishing available year-round.
Beaches are as picturesque as their names - Pirate's Cove, China Cove, Little Corona and The Wedge--abound. They offer something for everyone: from secluded coves and tide pools to monster shore breaks. From the grassy greenbelt on the Avenue, you can sit and watch the boats sail by. Families gather for evening cookouts at beach fire pits at the state beach and along the famed Balboa Peninsula strand.
With two piers, several manmade islands--some home to millionaire industrialists and developers---a working ferry, a nautical museum, an arcade-era amusement park, and a fleet or dory fisherman who market each morning's catch in open-air stalls, the area has it all.
But it's not all play. Newport is also a Mecca for technology. When the business day is over, there is no lack of entertainment. Picking a restaurant can be a major chore--there are more than 300 of them in the city and hundreds more surround it. They range from casual beach fare to five-star gourmet dining.
Culturally, Newport Beach boasts the Orange County Art Museum with its collection of cutting edge art. The Orange County Performing Arts Center, with ballet opera and symphony, is only a few minutes away in Costa Mesa.
Newport Beach got its start when enterprising developers built the landmark Balboa Pavilion as a bathhouse in 1906 to greet those arriving on the Pacific Electric Railroad's Big Red Car. The Victorian-style building still stands, a visual connection between dreamers past and present.
We have rented houses in this stretch of Newport Beach for about 25 years. This is the first time we've stayed at 4812 Seashore. The floor plan is the same as many of the houses on Seashore....4 bedrooms/2 baths upstairs over a smaller unit downstairs. This property has been partially updated and the location was great. There really isn't a ocean view, but it takes about 30 seconds to walk around the corner and be on the beach. The beds were comfortable, but if you are very tall beware...the twins in one of the bedrooms have foot boards and will be too short is you are any taller than about 5'9". The bedroom with the other twin beds is great...no foot boards. The other two bedrooms have queen beds (alas, we wished they were kings). Make sure to bring some desk top fans...the bedrooms tend to get quite hot during the day.
The only real complaints we had was that one of the burners on the stove wouldn't light (very dangerous, gas comes out but the auto light feature doesn't work) and there is no light switch to turn on the light over the outside stairs. This is really dangerous because it is very dark at night and you need to go up and down to reach the street. For some reason, the owners have covered over the light switches for the porch lights...so strange. We reported both of these issues to Associated Realty (the property managers). Let's hope they get them repaired soon.
If you are cooking for a big group, I would bring an electric skillet and bring a large salad bowl. Note: It's easy to throw the electrical curcuits if you are using more than one appliance at a time. The kitchen is fairly well stocked, but if there are some items you just can't do without...I would bring them. Also, remember to bring dish rags, tea towels, dish soap, etc. for the kitchen. None of that is provided. Also, the trash can in the kitchen take 33 gallon trash bags (not the usual 13 gallon).
We LOVED the fact that this unit rents from Friday to Friday. It made it so much easier for some of our family to come just for the weekend. I wish more of the properties rented from Friday to Friday. We would definitely rent this unit again.
