  • Perfect writer's retreat

    "This is a beautiful spot and steps from sand, restaurants and adventure. This place has it all and you won't be disappointed. My writing partner and I had the most amazing and inspiring weekend."

  • Awesome Beach House

    "This was our second year to spend a week at the beach house in July. Our family is Grandma, Papa, Daughter, Son--In Law and granddaughters ages 12, 7 and 7. It was extremely comfortable for all as well as beautifully furnished. Our week this year was during the 4th of July. The boardwalk on the 4th was busy but we thought it was very intertaining. I was a little sad thinking there would be no fireworks for the girls to see. However, there was a lovely display on the other side of Balboa Pier. The owners were awesome. As I said last year we are spoiled with this beach house. None of us wanted to leave."

  • 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."

    "We stayed for a week during a family reunion on the Peninsula. Matt was so helpful and very easy to work with. We felt very welcomed and right at home. The apartment was the perfect spot for us! It was much bigger than we expected for a 1 bedroom. The dining area was huge and great for family visits. The bedroom was very roomy too with a very comfortable bed and even a small ocean view! Everything was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed - the dishes, pots, pans, silverware, etc. all matched and were in very good shape. You could easily set a set a more formal dinner if you wanted to. The view of the marina from the deck was fantastic - we had a great BBQ! It was very family friendly as well. We had our 7 year-old and our young adult sons with us and the space worked well for all of us. The location is close to everything. We didn't drive at all during the week. We can't wait to stay again next year! Thanks Matt!!"
