As beach rentals go it was nice, around the corner from the pier and shops. Easy to take the kids for a walk or quick bite to eat. Only one parking space but we make it work, one issue is there isn’t a outside shower or hose to use. they provide a bucket to wash your feet, but with small kids it was a pain to keep it clean and all the sand under control. Had problems with the screen doors, kept come off the tracks. So the one to the balcony we kept it off. Told the maintenance lady who happen to be down stairs. If you have kids rent the bottom unit.
The price was fair had a problem with not being able to sleep on bed linens
The property was nice could use a pain job and some updating. We were really annoyed with the cleaning lady that was there 3 times, 2 of which we’re not unnecessary, she cleaned upstairs only 1 time. If We knew she was coming we would’ve parked there but you have to go get someone out of the water at the beach, find them, and come back and move the truck in the middle of the day was ridiculous and bring all the kids back in because he was the one out there without all the kids. She was not very pleasant. When we would come home and find her at the washing machine was uncomfortable. The fact that we had to go buy sheets to sleep on the beds was ridiculous if someone had just told us we need to bring our own sheets. Instead we had to go spend the money on three sets of beds linens. Bathrooms were not very clean.
Unfortunately, Karen was an uncooperative guest who abused the house rules- the listing states clearly that there is one garage space included as parking with the rental for each unit- instead Karen abused the rules by completely parking in the garage and then blocking the rear of the garage by parking an additional large truck parked behind the garage and made it impossible for the cleaning people who had nowhere to park as well as the newly arriving guest in the other unit who also had no place to park- when the cleaning people asked them to move they were abusive and refused to move the truck making it nearly impossible to clean the other unit for the arriving guests. When they eventually moved for the cleaning crew they immediately put the truck back and refused to move it even though they were told that they were not allowed to park in that spot. Karen admits in her review that her family member parked where they shouldn't have parked and in doing so they caused a great deal of problems in preparing the other unit for arriving guests in a limited amount of time. There are two units at the building where Karen stayed and Karen knew she was not the only guest, and as such Karen needs to be respectful of the needs and rights of the other guests as well as herself. In addition, Karen's unit was professionally cleaned and the bathrooms were immaculate. In addition the property was just painted in May of this year- also, Karen never contacted me at any time about any problem with the sheets and in fact the sheets are new and if for some reason there was a problem, she should have let me know and I would have corrected it- so her claims that the rental needed painting and was not clean are completely false and are retaliatory simply because they had to move their truck which was not parked in a space that was assigned to them and violated house rules. I would not recommend Karen to future hosts and she was not typical of the cooperative and pleasant guests we have had stay and enjoy this property many times. We strive to provide a family oriented beach rental for families to come and enjoy a great beach vacation in a fantastic location and we have done so for many years with hundreds of satisfied repeat guests and it is unusual and certainly not our goal to have any dissatisfied guests
It was ok
Location was great but the lower level needs to be updated. Smells and looks old.
Erin did not stay in the lower unit. Erin and her family stayed in the upper unit and her extended family stayed in the lower unit. Sorry if she felt any issues with the lower rental as we gladly do whatever necessary to please our guests. However, Erin never contacted me with any complaints regarding either the upper unit in which she stayed or the lower unit and her extended family members in the lower unit even stated everything was great and they had a really good time. Additionally, both units were professionally cleaned before their arrival and all furnishings are up to date rental furniture. Had she contacted us at any time with any issues we would not hesitate to remedy any factors our guests have any issues with.
Ron was GREAT!!
Ron is great to work with. Very quick to respond. Nice place. Good amount of space. Great value. Very close to beach and Newport Pier. We had a great time. Parking can be difficult if you have more than 1 vehicle.
Great spot, Only two properties from the beach and walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. We stayed with nine of us in the lower unit. Ron was very helpful when we had a small mechanical failure and let us use the upstairs unit temporarily, not many owners would have done that. The lower unit could use some updating but overall it is a good value being so close to pier. Would definitely come back, had an awesome time at Newport!
Great Beach Rental
We had a fantastic vacation when we stayed at this beach house with our family of six. The rental is in a great spot that is very close to the beach, less than a minute walk! and plenty of fun activities. The house is very clean and we loved it! We are coming back next year for sure!!!
This property is in a very good area for family vacations--25 steps to the Sand--Ocean View--you are walking distance to shops/dining/ bike and surfboard rentals/ and the Catalina Island Ferry From the property location, Disneyland is 20 minutes away/ San Diego and Sea World are one hour away and Universal Studios and Hollywood are 45 minutes away
