Living room has 40”  TV with local cable, HBO and Wi-Fi.

                                      4th year here and have already reserved for next year!! We unplug everything (sorry, we forgot to plug the TV back in :/) and just enjoy our family! This house is the perfect get away. The house itself is amazing, from the state of the art kitchen and bath to the wonderful location and amenities. We never move our car once we're here; it is convenient to everything - shopping, dining, boardwalk, beach, parks, and Starbucks! The outdoor shower is a great way to keep the beach outside and get the kids and beach gear squeaky clean. The garage is big and so is the washer and dryer. The fire pit is perfect for drowsy nights, Smores, and hotdogs. We always rent the upper apartment at the same time so the extended family can join us throughout the week. Adult kids and/or little ones???- this house is perfect!

                                      Has everything you need

                                      My family and I loved the private house. It provided us with all the amenities of home and much more. We loved that all the beach equipment was there and ready for us to use. The kids loved the space and the pirate them. We loved the location, large bath and comfortable beds. We will for sure rent this again.

                                      We are so glad you had everything you needed!

                                      Perfect House!

                                      brent h.

                                      Crystal was awesome, made everything very easy for our family.

                                      The house is perfect - we loved having plenty of bikes and beach gear. We also loved having A/C, shower outside (tankless water heater), three bathrooms (one in the garage), two car garage, bbq grill, etc. The main floor has everything we needed, the upstairs unit was perfect too. The location is great - even though the house sits on the corner of Balbao Ave, we didn't hear traffic at night. When we travel again to Newport Beach, we will stay here again. We comfortably slept seven on the main floor and two in the upper unit.

                                      Perfect Place to Stay!!

                                      Iris F.

                                      I can't even begin to tell you what a wonderful experience this was and how easy Crystal is to work with. I would highly recommend this home for anyone to stay in.

                                      Fantastic Newport Rental

                                      This was our family's third summer staying at the pirate house and it just keeps getting better and better! This home is perfect for kids of all ages! Our kids are now teenagers and young adults and with renting both the upper and lower units we had more than enough room! We spent the days in the surf, on bikes, and reading on the patio. Evening were filled with home cooked meals on the BBQ, card games around the table, and walks to the pier. The house is organized, comfortable, and very clean! The outdoor shower is great for getting the sand off before you come in and the washer and dryer are so convenient! The owners are terrific and they have thought of everything you need for a terrific stay at the beach! We can't wait to come back next year!

                                      Perfect family vacation home!

                                      Leona M.

                                      Our family just returned from one of the best vacations we have ever had thanks to this amazing home. We have 6 teenagers, so we rented both the upstairs and downstairs units as well as the bikes. The owners have thought of literally everything & the house is crazy organized. We played at the beach (which is just a few houses away) all day, rode bikes in the evening, enjoyed home cooked meals and s'mores by the firepit, and soaked in all the good vibes this home exudes. This home just feels so good! It is cozy, comfortable, and extremely clean. The owners are very responsive and made our first vacation rental experience pretty much perfect. Our kids already are planning our get away at the pirate house next summer! Thank you for such a warm home to make family memories!
