About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Prepare yourself for the vacation of a lifetime at this gorgeous Newport Beach home. Perfect for a family vacation or friend weekend getaway (up to six guests), this home has three bedrooms and is just one block from the beach.

Centrally located in the heart of Newport Beach peninsula, this duplex gives you the chance to skip the car rides and walk to everything including restaurants, prime beach spots, and exciting attractions.

A granite countertop bar attached to the kitchen with three black barstools welcomes you to this lovely home. The kitchen has everything you'll need including an oven, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, and coffeemaker.

The dining table seats up to four and is just adjacent to the grey sectional, which faces the flatscreen TV atop a beautiful gas fireplace. Head out to the balcony through the sliding glass door and relax in the comfortable chairs.

Down the hall are three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. One bathroom is attached to the master bedroom, which has a king-size bed and flatscreen TV. The other two bedrooms each have a queen-size bed.

This home conveniently comes with a Blu-ray player, cable, and WiFi. A coin-operated washer and dryer are located in the shared garage. (If you're traveling with a larger group, you might like to consider renting both halves of this duplex together - please call us at Vacasa for more details!)

Feel free to rent a couple bikes and take a ride along the path just feet from your door. Tasty eateries, bars, and the hopping nightlife are just a few blocks away on 21st Street, and Balboa Fun Park is close at hand and offers pier rides, food, and shopping. And just two miles down to the end of the peninsula is The Wedge, said to be the best place for skimboarding, surfing, and more.

Modern, elegant, and ideally located, this home is the best spot for your beach getaway.

Good location, poor care for property

  • 2 of 5

Location was wonderful, one block from the beach. Bathrooms and kitchen were updated. However, when we walked in, we were overwhelmed with the strong scent of chemical deodorizing sprays.

We were told to take out fans and start moving the air to clear it. Imagine our disgust when we discovered the fans were full of dust and were filthy.

As the days went on, more issues became apparent:

1. No lights in either outdoor stairwells making it dangerous to climb stairs at night;

2. Coffee maker did not work;

3. Dishwasher panel did not function properly;

4. The carpeting was runned down and stained;

5. Middle bedroom needs a a serious repainting;

6. A couple of the off-white hand towels in first bathroom had stains;

7. No blender.

Next time, we will do better research to find an apartment that meets our expectations.

Great condo, great beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great condo and so close to the beach! Balboa blvd. is busy but since we are right next to the crosswalk, it wasn't a difficult trip to the beach. I loved it since we had all three condos together. It was a great trip!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay at this condo. The location is incredible and the home was clean and very comfy. It felt like a hotel, with the comforts of home! Heather, the local manager, was super nice and made sure we were happy!

Ugh, Gross! Never again.

  • 1 of 5


Brought three couples for my husband's 38th birthday. Upon arrival the unit was legit 100 degrees. Food all over the walls, dirty counter tops, soiled carpets, dusty fans, dirty oven... we didn't want to even sit down anywhere.

Tried to get out and just go to a hotel but were denied and Vacasa sent cleaning crew for a second time. But did they really? House was still super dirty, ugh. We're forced to stay there. We're embarrassed for our arriving guests.

Our bikes were stolen out of the garage in the middle of the day. We tried stay away as much as possible. We will NEVER rent here again and most likely never rent with Vacasa again.
