  • 5 of 5

To be honest if I could 10 STARS I would give this a 10. Michelle thought of everything anyone would need or want. The property was in Pristine condition and completely stocked. There was everything from dinnerware to extra blankets, pillows, and towels.

Bicycles are in the garage if you want to ride around Newport.

Michelle provided lists of local restaurants and how to get to the closest Starbucks, Trader Joe's etc. This was the first getaway where we did not need to research anything. Rollo, was a wealth of knowledge and greeted us; letting us know to call him if we needed anything. He also gave my husband and I a brief history of the area and a wonderful place to eat where the locals go (Best Monte' Cristo I think I ever had.

We came down from Long Beach and even though it was only 2 days we came away so relaxed. My husband and I are definitely going to be coming back often and stay here. We really can't wait for our next stay.

Nice rental.

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Literally 1 minute walk to beach. It definitely is "cozy". Ok, it's small. But it is comparable to other homes in the area...and has a nice patio to spread out. Very well equipped and modern kitchen. Beach chairs, bikes, and beach toys are also a bonus. Michelle and Rollo were very easy to work with. Would rent again.

The best Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

I have rented for many years in Newport Beach but this is the first time I was seeking a family reunion location for over 20 people. Daunting. Michelle was fabulous in helping me to determine how much space I would need to give families some privacy but allow room to come together. I rented 5 units. Without a doubt the best service and support I have ever received in Newport Beach. Rollo and Richard fantastic. Lovely location, well appointed rentals with all the amenities. This will be my go to spot in future years. Thanks HappiTravels for an awesome reunion.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this wonderful Vacation Home. It had everything you would need for a wonderful stay. One of the best features was the garage took the hassle out of parking which can be a challenge. Also, whenever we had a question there was always someone to come and help us. This was also a fabulous location. Thank you for a great stay!!

Wonderful beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed this beach home. It was stocked with everything we needed and was walking distance to the beach. It had plenty of stuff to do, including two bicycles, beach toys and games. The kitchen was well stocked and had plenty of staples available. I forgot to pack sugar for our coffee and sure enough, Michelle had it in the cupboard. I would also like to say that our security deposit was refunded within hours of checking out, we have sometimes had to wait weeks for it. I would definitely stay here again if we were to ever make it back to Newport Beach.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five enjoyed our stay here. The location is very close to the beach and we were able to walk to restaurants and parks. The house is stocked with everything for a great beach vacation - beach towels, sand toys, chairs, coolers, etc. The home has beautiful updates and a large kitchen and patio area. The manager is very friendly and helpful.
