Nice condo, but very loud/busy location

  • 3 of 5

The property did not look at pristine as in the pictures but was overall well maintained and comfortable to stay in. However, the carpets were very dirty and the outside balcony was also dirty- dirt from chairs would rub off on you. This property is in the heart of all the bars in Newport and right by the pier. We enjoyed being so close to the beach and the water by the pier is very calm and ideal for young kids. We loved being right next door to Balboa fitness and worked out many times during the week. It was great going up to the Newport Coffee Co every morning which was right across the street. This is great if you want to stay close to many bars and restaurants and be super close to the beach (we loved that part) but it is not ideal for families that want quiet at night. We loved the place during the day but HATED it at night. The king bed was pretty much like sleeping on a piece of plywood, I am not even sure it is an actual mattress, it felt more like sleeping on a box spring. Since there was no AC, you were forced to sleep with the windows open; which meant you heard all of the traffic and bar sounds ALL night long. If you are used to sleeping with peace and quiet, DO NOT stay here. You will hear sirens, cars, horns, people yelling coming home from the bars until all hours of the night. Needless to say, we had a great week but did not get much sleep at all. I wish someone on past reviews let us know how it is at night at this place so we could have made a better choice for us and our 2 year old and 4 month old kids.

Great Location and Clean!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house and plan on staying a little longer next time. It was clean with all the comforts of home. The beach is right across the street and we had so much fun with the boogie boards and sand toys provided by the owner. It was a perfect trip for our family of six. The location can't be beat with shops, restaurants, bike rentals and the pier only minutes away. The owner was great to work with and quick to respond to any questions. We would definitely recommend this house and would love to return!

Location was excellent, with easy access to beach activities.

  • 4 of 5

The 2 bedroom unit was adequate for 4 adults, and we thoroughly enjoyed the easy access to Balboa Peninsula and Balboa Island. Local Newport Beach public marina was within walking distance, and we found the park to be quite relaxing with beach, pier, and the marina restaurant.

On the pier and beach!

  • 5 of 5

Very cute cozy place, but honestly it's also very spacious with high ceilings. Good wifi, even subtle things like high quality paper towels or toilet paper and soap/towels. The Old Spaghetti Factory is literally across the street and a good family spot. We'll definitely be coming back! Oh and no car needed.

Our family of 5 really enjoyed our time spent at this home. Easy access to beach, pier, restaurants, and bay. We really enjoyed walking to Marina Park daily to use the playground.
