Perfect after work get away - GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

Was in the area for work for a week but wanted to forego the mundane of hotel living. This beach bungalow was the perfect spot. Not only is the location stellar for being able to easily walk to the beach, the pier and numerous restaurants, but the interior was very cozy and chiche with everything you need to be comfortable away from home. The king sized bed was like a cloud and I looked forward to laying my head down each night. The porch is great for people watching and getting a little bit of afternoon sunshine. David was very responsive to questions and we really appreciated the shampoo, soap and coffee provided. We also greatly appreciated the 100.00 gift card to Mastro's. It was a wonderful dining experience. I would definitely return.

Great location - walked to the beach and restaurants each day. And access to beach chairs, beach towels, beach toys and boards was awesome! The space was perfect and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony to enjoy the cool breeze. Great place to stay near Balboa.

Nice accommodation in the centre of Newport Beach. Very attentive host

  • 4 of 5

The property was very clean, modern and very central for restaurants and beach. The only downside of the location is it being very close to the main road through Balboa therefore can be noisy at times.

David was very attentive in dealing with a couple of minor issues we faced at the beginning of the stay.

Great location for a vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five, which includes three teens, had a wonderful 4-night stay at the end of February and would stay here again in a heartbeat. Everything was comfortable and felt like home by Day 2. The location is perfect and, after seeing how close the beachfront rentals are to each other as well as the beach walk, we prefer this location - which is just a couple of blocks from Newport Pier (you can see it from the windows).

We were glad to leave our rented minivan in the garage the whole time and we could walk everywhere. Within two blocks are plenty of restaurants and the grocery store, Pavilions, is only a half mile walk. We also walked along the beach walk two of the days to Balboa Pier (a little less than 2 miles) and ate at Ruby's, took a Segway tour of Balboa Peninsula, and did a whale watch. We also walked over to the opposite side of the bay and rented a Duffy boat. (Groupon has a ton of offers for Newport Beach.)

The condo is well appointed and has plenty of space. Toiletries were also included! You can tell that a lot of attention to detail has been put into this property. Yes, there is some wear & tear (e.g. carpet) but it is what you can expect from any popular property near the beach (especially if guests don't heed to the "leave your shoes at the door" sign -- we always travel with indoor flipflops at hotels and rentals for this reason anyways!). Our teens stayed in the back bedroom with the two beds and thought it was a great space. The lack of door to the sink/shower area threw them off at first but they worked around it.

The king size bed in the other room was super soft and comfy - we were pleasantly surprised as we usually prefer a firmer mattress. There were TVs in both rooms plus the living room. For some reason, all the TVs were plugged into the wall but unplugged in the back when we arrived. We were able to figure out all but one. It wasn't important enough to contact the owner, David; however, we are sure he would have responded right away if we did. The wireless was not working when we arrived and he got back to us within minutes after contacted and we were able to connect.

We also used the washer/dryer before leaving, which was great to have available for use (and ended up, in hindsight, as a necessity as after our flight out of LA was cancelled due to a noreaster and we unexpectedly ended up in LAX hotels for three nights after we left Newport Beach).

All in all, highly recommend!! We loved our stay!

Excellent location right in the middle of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Once you arrive you really don't have to drive again once you get settled in. This VRBO is right next to the beach, restaurants, bars and pretty much any kind of food you can think of. The grocery store is about a half mile away. We spent quite a bit of time on the deck enjoying people watching and the views both during the day and at night. I will hopefully get the opportunity to stay here again in the future.
