  • That lovely porch

    "Long-time friends joined us for a week. We started out on the porch, enjoying the magical late-afternoon light on the water as we enjoyed each others' company. The home interior is charming, fresh and inviting. I could stand in one place, turn around and see something new with each turn. The kitchen was well-equipped, and we liked the expandable dining table. Did I mention the porch? It spoke our language, "slow down and enjoy": coffee in the morning, people-watching (and boats!), naps on the chaise lounge, and a shared bottle of wine at sunset."

  • Location, Location, Location

    "We have rented this property and the sister property downstairs twice prior to this stay. The location is ideal with the Newport Pier, restaurants and shops ( especially the donut shop) steps away. We come with seven young grand children and their mothers ( our daughters) for " cousin camp". The surf is just right... Enough waves and lots of flat sand area for digging sand castles. The accommodations are not luxurious but are comfortible and practical for a family with children. My only suggestion is it would be nice to have a gas grill. The charcoal one provided takes too long to get going when you need to feed hungry kids and adults in a hurry. There are some beach chairs and sand toys provided... We bring our own. Doug and Sandy are nice people and easy to work with."

  • 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!"

  • Great stay and location!

    "Our family stay here for 16 days and we had the BEST time! The beach was a block away and shopping/dinning right across the street. No need to drive anywhere! Lauryl, the owner had everything you could need. It felt like home away from home. She was so easy, friendly and quick to respond to our needs. We miss the Beige Beauty! We can't wait to stay there again! Thanks for everything Lauryl!"
