  • My 2016 summer vacation

    "We have vacationed in Newport Beach 12 times over the past 14 years and "The Sandcastle" is by far our favorite place. The location is perfect and the house was immaculately clean. This is the only house we've stayed where bed linens, bath & beach towels and beach chairs and an umbrella was provided. And the three outdoor showers provide for keeping the sand out of the house. The owners went above and beyond to make sure our stay was to our satisfaction and we will definitely return."

  • Incredible Home at the Beach

    "Located in the prime area of Newport Beach on the Oceanfront, we rented this property for our family reunion and had an incredible time. Not only does the home have space for large parties, but it is located in one of the best areas in Newport, on the Oceanfront, close to the Newport and Balboa Piers, shops, fun zone, and dining. Plenty of parking is available nearby."

  • 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."

  • 1416 W. Oceanfront, Newport Beach

    "It was very nice. Would have been nicer with a garage, but at least there was parking. The décor is very dated, and the downstairs sofa needs "help". All in all, a good week. Very quiet and peaceful. Great beach. Decent TVs. BBQ is good. Plenty of seating, inside and out. Nice views from upstairs. Very comfortable for a party of four, tr"
