Guestbook comments from the owner

We just spent a week at this beautiful newly built home in Newport Beach. We cannot rave enough about the place! It has a giant patio right on the sand, with a built in BBQ, a large dining table and lounge chairs. We would have been content to spend the entire trip on that patio -- watching the kids play on the sand and just enjoying the ocean air.

There was so much to do nearby if you are up for a short walk -- it is not far from the Newport Pier in one direction, and the Balboa Pier/Fun Zone in the other direction. There are many restaurants and beach rentals in both areas -- We rented bikes and rode up and down the boardwalk, a duffy boat to cruise among the Newport islands (my favorite part) and one day took a short drive to Disneyland and Downtown Disney. The kids loved the new Marina Park with its lighthouse slide and lots of playground equipment and it's just a block away.

The unit itself was perfect for our group -- three of the bedrooms had king beds for the adults in our group, and the kids loved the "bunk room." There are also a ton of movies on the apple TV. We watched 1 almost every night.

An overall great experience. We will definitely be back.

The perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

I cannot speak highly enough about this rental!! Our family has been renting through VRBO for years at numerous locations. This unit had everything we needed and more! Our intention was to eat out most nights, however, due to the location and the amount of fun our kids were having, just steps from the beach, everyone wanted to stay in a BBQ. We cannot wait to book this house again next year:)

We have been renting different homes on the boardwalk for more than 20 years. This has been my favorite so far. We had some issues trying to figure out the tv remotes and Christi was quick to respond and exceptionally patient. We'll be back again next summer!

Property is impeccable and the location couldn’t be better

  • 5 of 5

We love staying here. Perfect location in the nicest condo on the beach. When sit outside enjoying the sunset you literally hear couple after couple walking along the path say how this is the nicest place on the beach! Gorgeous and comfortable! The kids love all the sand toys, balls, frisbees, games, puzzles, etc.
