Great Hang Out

  • 5 of 5

My brother and myself came here after a business trip to relax. We had a great time, the appartement was wonderful and the time at Newport Beach was even more relaxing than expected. We sure come back. The hospitality and care of Kat was just the best. One small thing - the unit upstairs was sometimes a bit noisy but not a real distrubance to us.

Great place!

Great place! We had a wonderful time in Newport Beach ... and we didn't want to leave. The House is very beautiful with perfect attention to detail. We were there with our two Kids (5 and 8 years) and we enjoyed the perfect equipped garage with everything for the beach. The hosts were extremely helpful and friendly. Thank you again!

Ideal location on Balboa near ocean & bay

  • 5 of 5

This facility is first rate and comes with everything you could possibly need. Kat & John made every effort to make sure that we were comfortable. We enjoy walks and found pleasant places to do so along the bay, the ocean, Balboa Island and even church on Sunday. There are numerous choices for dining both up and down the road or a short drive to Fashion Island (Roy's) or Huntington Beach (our favorite Duke's). Thanks for the hospitality!

Great stay at Newport beach

  • 5 of 5

This place is great! One block away from the beach. The garage is full of stuff that you can use (bikes, surfboards, football, beach chairs etc). A nice lite lounge area with BBQ towards the street. House is super nice and is newly built with high class. Kat and John where great with recommendations of thing in the neighborhood (shopping, grocerys, restaurant etc). A very nice family with kids lives above. We highly recommend this place.
