"Surf Cottage" (Lower), The Oceanfront And Boardwalk Beach Vacation Legend

Bedrooms 3
Bathrooms1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights

Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

INCLUDES beach towels & beach chairs!

FREE WiFi!

Fun, family and friends await you at this laid back, oceanfront getaway. Your patio is front row seating to the sands, sights and surf of Newport Beach.

The accommodations are cozy and comfortable, perfect for the vacationer seeking an oceanfront experience just three steps from the sand and fifty to the water. The location does not get any better than this!

The open floor plan makes it nice for the entire family to gather and enjoy the Flat screen TV. This three bedroom unit has a two twin beds in the first bedroom, a full size bed in the second bedroom, and a full size bed in the third bedroom. All bedrooms have a mirror, a closet, a dresser and a luggage rack. The shower room is separate from the bathroom. Enjoy provided linens, towels, cleaning supplies, WiFi and coin-op washer/dryer, and beat the summer parking rush with one space in the garage. (The space is too small for SUVs but adequate for sedans and coupes.)

The patio is split, and this unit uses the upper deck. The other unit uses the lower deck.

Take advantage of the numerous local restaurants, fire up the BBQ grill or stay inside and dine in. There's no need to wander too far from home for food, entertainment and shops around the Newport Pier. The Pavilion supermarket and 32nd street dining are also right down the street. Further down the peninsula is the Balboa Fun Zone, where you can find boat rentals, trips to Catalina island, whale watching tours, charter a fishing trip, or take the kids to the old-fashioned arcade next to the Ferris Wheel.

Have more people in your group than six? Rent the upper 2 bedroom unit as well and sleep another six! (See Surf Cottage (Upper) / VRBO 514493 for more!)

This unit rents Friday to Friday for Summer 2018. No air conditioning (but a great ocean breeze). No smoking, in the unit or on the premises. No pets. Minimum primary renter age of 25. Photo ID required. Book now, before the week you want is gone!

Reviewer Comments:

Great location. Nice deck but also didn't have to share with other guests. Very nice having garage. Overall a great place with a very short walk to grocery store in one direction and pier in the other.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! It is a nice deck, and it's actually split. This unit gets the upper deck, which is larger. The upstairs unit gets the lower deck. Both units get their own BBQs and patio furniture.

From initial transaction thru departure, White Sail was truly customer oriented. Exceeded expectations. Responsive and reasonable on all issues. Will use again and recommend anyone else to do likewise.

Reviewer Comments:

Location was great. Parking was difficult as garage is too small for a real car. We used the garage for bikes and competed for car space on the street. The unit itself is gross. Beach house with crunchy carpet throughout...enough said

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! Parking is difficult, no question there. The garage is vintage 1920s, so modern SUVs and trucks won't fit. We generally recommend that people with multiple cars park their bigger cars on the street, and put their smaller car in the garage, so you can get around town without losing your space on the street.

Reviewer Comments:

Although I would say that the rental could use some updating I assume that by keeping it as is the unit is relatively affordable for an oceanfront property. The location is perfect. My favorite part of our stay was hanging out on the deck to watch the sun set. Then hanging out even more to watch the moon and the stars and listening to the ocean sing its songs. A lovely stay was had by all.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! We love that patio as well, for people watching *and* enjoying those spectacular Pacific sunsets. We do our best to keep the property 'affordably beach rustic', but still having it clean, functional and fun.

This beach house is in the perfect location on the strand. Although the house is dated, it is super clean. We loved it experiencing the beach life! Highly recommend. Good bang for the buck!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! It's an old 1920s beach cottage, so a bit of 'dated' comes with the territory, but we try hard to keep it super clean, and we're glad you noticed.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great time, the location was awesome, the patio was huge and we were lucky enough to find parking on the same street. Only one thing I would change and that is the full beds are a little small and are probably ready to be changed out. It is the perfect place to people watch and is an easy walk to the pier.

Owner's Response: Can't beat the people watching from this location. The deck is huge and a lot of fun. And we like your idea of updating the rear bedroom, so we changed that bed out.
