  • 5-STAR Beach Rental-We Can't Stay Away!!!

    "The Sandcastle is a beautiful beach rental in Newport Beach! We have returned here for several years now and have never been disappointed. The location is excellent, just steps to the sand. Just off the boardwalk to avoid all the foot traffic so you can really enjoy the beautiful patio setting with views of the ocean. The pictures really do not do this home justice. Our first visit here we came loaded with cleaning supplies ready to work. We were shocked to find the home so clean and orderly, we even felt comfortable to go barefoot, which we NEVER do in hotels or rentals! We were able to just unpack and start enjoying our vacation, which is exactly what we have done every year at this property. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you would need to prepare and serve a meal out on the patio (you will also find a very nice BBQ grill) or at the large dining table inside. The living room has a very large leather sectional, as well as a leather loveseat, plenty of seating! You will also find a large screen TV with all your favorite channels available. The 3 bedrooms are all well equipped with bedding, dressers, fans, alarm clocks and large closets stocked with hangers. The master bedroom has its own bath attached. All your linens are provided, as well as extra pillows and beach towels. You will also find a closet loaded with beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, etc! Bill and Janice really have thought of everything! We love the fact that they are just steps away if we ever needed anything, yet they give you all the privacy you would expect. They are always eager to visit with us and catch up on what's been going on in our lives since our last visit and give us updates on any new restaurants we should visit or events that may be happening during our stay. This home is walking distance to everything you could possibly need; grocery stores, restaurants, bike rentals, shopping and more. You will be just a fun bike ride away from the famous "Wedge" where you can witness some very skilled surfers in action! You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay at the Sandcastle!"

  • Great property as advertised

    "We just spent a week at this property. It was just as advertised. One house for the beach. You can see the waves from the patio during high tide. We only left the property twice as the location was totally relaxing and a fun place to be. The house is clean and roomy. All the extras are here. Boogie boards, beach chairs, everything. The property owners are great people and very accommodating. They met us when we arrived and treated us as their guests or family. This is an excellent rental location and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a nice stay at the beach."

  • And the Oscar goes to....

    "OK, Kitt and Pete, after 13 years, I guess it's time we posted a review! We are the Gordon family from Granite Bay, CA, and longtime summer renters. We came across this VRBO listing for the upper house when our twin girls were starting Kindergarten in 2002 -- they are now starting college at UC Davis this week and we have been back every year except in 2011, when we vacationed on the east coast. It's a beautiful, spacious house in a great area, very tastefully furnished and decorated with a beach/marine theme and Pete's own photography; it's incredibly comfortable, has a well-equipped kitchen, includes linens, a washer-dryer, beach gear and bikes; and has a garage! Our favorite feature of all might be the rooftop deck which boasts a view in all directions. We have fond memories of relaxing up there, enjoying the breeze as we sip a glass of wine and watch the sunset. It's lovely to stroll along the bayfront over to the fun zone or Newport Landing, and easy to hop on the ferry and continue the walk on Balboa Island. The beach is just a couple of blocks the other way on foot; and we've always enjoyed biking along the boardwalk up to Newport pier, or down to the Wedge. Thank you for having us back all these years to share your incredible home, and for keeping it so nice!"
