  • Amazing place!

    "The pictures just dont do this place justice! The location is amazing, you are literally steps from Mothers Beach which we found to feel like a private beach and not all of the hassle lugging your stuff very far. The house is beautiful, clean and well maintained. We travel a lot and I can honestly say this place was great! Also in the Master bedroom one of the most comfortable beds I've e ever stayed on when traveling. Thank you for a great experience!"

  • Wonderful location and amenities with plenty of room to relax.

    "Our family of 6 (4 kids between ages 7 and 15) really enjoyed staying here. The location is very convenient to rent paddle boards just up the street to use in the harbor. There were bikes and boogey boards included with the house and we used them! Neighbors were quiet and the garage was a great feature to keep our van secure while we spent days at the beach or around the peninsula and Balboa Island. We really have no complaints about the property - it was perfect for us."

  • Great house! Close to the Beach

    "We came to Newport for my cousins wedding and found staying at this house, instead of a hotel, a much better alternative. The house is clean and quite comfortable for 2 families. The house does not have central air, which was not an issue at night because we opened all the windows and had fans, but during the day, the house was a bit uncomfortable. From what I am told, not many houses have central air. The only negative, was that amount of noise during the day from a neighbor blasting his music each day which made it difficult for my 15 month old to take a nap since we had to keep the windows open. The owner, Gary, was very attentive, even from overseas! The location was perfect! An easy walk to the beautiful beach and a short walk to the pier. The grocery store was also in walking distance. Oh, parking spaces are hard to come by but the property has a parking space in the back of the house. Overall, we enjoyed our stay! Newport Beach is a beautiful place with lots of activities, friendly people, and great weather!!"

  • 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."
