If you can book it - book it! Don't think about it, just grab this one up!

Loved, loved, loved this cozy, private, quiet, spotless, bungalow! I'm a picky real estate broker and the meticulous care that has been taken of this eclectic little place was immediately obvious. The beds rival ones you find in the nicer hotels. The bathroom has an oversized tub and you'll appreciate the quality linens. I was worried about possibly having to share the water supply with the downstairs unit, but there was no need. The sofas were comfy with lots of pillows, and the wall-to-wall view above the neighboring rooftops from the living room was nice - could see mountains and the bay in the distance. Even though it's small, the kitchen turned out to be just perfect with room enough for two. The stove is huge and we lacked for nothing as far as meal prep and serving was concerned. There's shopping nearby for most anything you need in the way of groceries/take out. Sharing a front porch was not a problem - walk out the gate and head towards the beach and you can smell the ocean right away. The garage is loaded with anything you could possibly need to enjoy a day at the beach. Rollo (what a nice man!) met us when we arrived to give us a quick orientation and a parking lesson (backing into a garage is not my strong suit!) Michelle was always available and checked on us each day, via text, to make sure we were happy - we were! If I ever make it back to Newport Beach (and I truly hope I do), I will wait until this cool little beach house is available. One very big thing for me was that my Daughter and I both felt safe here any time of the day or night. Thanks again, Michelle and Rollo!

Family friendly, great location

  • 5 of 5

A home away from home! This little beach home had everything we needed! Great location, with all the comforts of home. We loved having a washer and dryer (we could pack much lighter) and she has plenty of beach toys. Michelle and Rollo were very hospitable, gave great recommendations and were very helpful. This was our first Cali vacation and we did lots of exploring, the location was so convenient to many beaches and great attractions (Legoland/Disneyland) are an easy drive away. We hope to return soon! Thanks again!

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

I needed a place for 4 nights last minute and the owner was very responsive and worked quickly to have the house ready for my arrival the day I made the reservation. Cute and cozy surroundings, short walk to the beach, all the amenities you would need to be comfortable. Enjoyed a home grilled dinner on the front patio. Beach bikes available for nice sunrise bike rides on the beach.

Cozy and Charming

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a cozy beach property with a lot of local charm, this is the place. It isn't fancy, but it is well cared for and very comfortable. The beach toys and bikes were an added plus that made our days on the beach and on the boardwalk very enjoyable. We had a great trip and hope to return sometime soon.

Great beach rental!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the upper unit for Memorial weekend - it was perfect for our family of 2 adults and 3 kids (younger ones shared the full bed, so no need to use sofa bed). The unit was very clean and kitchen well equipped, and loads of beach chairs, boards, and kids sand toys so we didn't have to bring or buy. Rollo met us on arrival and was a great source of local info, and beach really is so close. There were other guests renting the lower unit, but we heard no noise at all - only the garage door when they moved their car. Thanks Michelle, we will visit again!
