  • Highly Recommended

    "We were so lucky to have found this place. We felt very much at home and safe here. The house is in a lovely neighbourhood and very close to the beach. It is very well furnished and the owners are so generous with extras that one doesn't normally expect in a holiday rental. The kitchen came with useful condiments such as salt, pepper, spices and even a full bottle of cooking oil. Dishwashing detergents were also supplied. It was so handy having a washing machine and dryer at our disposal. Washing powder was also shared with us. The bathroom came with a big bottle of body wash, not the usual tiny packs that you normally get in hotels. The place is really set up like a family guest house. We were also allowed to use their bikes which gave us the perfect opportunity to explore Newport and surrounds. We were also privileged to have met the owners, Kathy and Pete - two of the friendliest people we've met. They were so warm and accommodating. Even their dog, Rico, was friendly and quickly became playmates with my 11yr old son. Kathy and Pete even extended their hospitality towards us in their own home by inviting us over for dinner on our last night and taking us to the Newport Boat Parade. We really cannot thank them enough for being the most wonderful host and for welcoming us in their lovely beach house. We hope to return to Newport one day and when we do, we will definitely stay at 308 Alvarado Place again."

  • Over all very happy with our vacation

    "Description and pictures were very accurate. Good communication with owners. We had to call the a couple of times and they responded timely. Nice to have a garage to park in since there is no free parking anywhere. The house was clean. Close to a great park where kids could play and have fun. Great location. Only critique is that the beds are not that comfortable. Other than that we had a great time. I would recommend this home to any family. The best thing about it was the location. Thank you for a fun stay. The Ojeda's"

  • Best Family Vacation Ever!

    "The reviews were accurate, this place is PEFECT for a family vacation! Two things sold us on this place, 1) the location between both piers, and 2) the patio and bbq, and after working with Jim (the relator), I'd have to say he's the third reason you want this place! Ok yeah, the appliances and furnishings were a little dated (brand new fridge and bbq) but EVERYTHING worked just fine - honestly we bbq'd every afternoon and evening anyway so rarely needed the oven/stove or microwave. The house sleeps 12 comfortably. It has a nice flat screen in the family room (with HBO), and wireless internet access which came in handy. A nice large dining room table to use for playing games or meals ... we ate outside most of the time on the patio table. the master bedroom has a superb view and a little patio of it's own that you can enjoy an ocean view while having your coffee in the morning. I would recommend you pick up you food and drinks at Costco prior to checking in as the Von's Pavilion was the only grocery store nearby and we found them to be a bit pricey. Also, plan on bringing any special herbs and spices as there was just the basic in the cupboards (we left a few extra spices to help build up the options). Another great thing is that Jim provides parking for two vehicles in a garage! A huge bonus that came in handy as everyone was jockeying for parking spots on the street. All in all, I would HIGHLY recommend you consider this property first - I know we plan to stay again next year around the same time and I'll probably book it a year in advance so no one snatches it up. Thanks for a great time Jim! My family loved the vacation!"

  • Fabulous

    "Absolutely Fabulous Newport Beach rental. Great Location. Balcony with a view from every room but one to die for. Beautifully appointed and fully equipped. Communications with the landlord was superb. Will be telling all my friends about this rental when they are in the Newport Beach area and want to spoil themselves with a long weekend of relaxation and fun."
