Reviewer Comments:

While our stay in Newport Beach was enjoyable, the accommodations were well below our expectations! The initial problem with the unit was apparent when we arrived. The website indicates air conditioning cannot be guaranteed. When I called to see if this unit had any I was told they didn't know but assured me the ocean breezes would keep the unit cool. In fact, the second story was so warm during the day and evening it was unusable. At one point, the temperature reached 90 degrees upstairs. Thankfully, by 10 PM it was cool enough to sleep. None of the beds were made when we arrived and when we started making them we found that the linen service left the wrong size for one of the beds. Our calls to the service line went unanswered so we finally had to buy some sheets. When we went to use the bikes, 2 of the 3 had flat tires. When I went to empty the full dishwasher, the bottom rack came out over the door and onto the floor because the washer hadn't been properly secured. The first night we were there, we heard some noise beside the house and determined there were 3 raccoons living under the neighbors house. Since we have a 6 year old, we were concerned about her being outside on the front patio. We called Animal Control who referred us to pest control services (this was a Sunday) left messages with the renal agency and maintenance service, all to no avail. When we left, the raccoons were still there. They usually came out every night so we just learned to live with the situation. On the plus side, the furnishings were comfortable and the home is close to the beach, the grocery store and restaurants. I believe this home could use a complete going over maintenance wise and the addition of some upstairs a/c window units.

Reviewer Comments:

First, let me say the staff was very friendly and helpful from the outset of our booking, through our stay and in follow up. The team we worked with was prompt and professional; they made an intentional effort for us to enjoy the stay. The property location is good! It is a nice street and the immediate neighbors are permanent residents that could not be more friendly. One downside to the location is, although it is very close to the beach, you have to cross the 4-lane ... a bit stressful with a youngster in tow. The other downside is purely timing; July 4th gave Newport's "war zone" to earn its reputation. Our issues were straight forward. The cleanliness of the house was not acceptable; we cleaned and had to wash all dishes, pots and pans before using. The patio area and "fire pit" we're disgusting. Furniture is soiled. 1 out of every 3 light bulbs actually worked; most were burned out. The propane for the gas grill was empty (though they promptly reimbursed us!) which was inconvenient. The floor plan was perfect. The linens and towels were clean and fresh. Overall, we give the rental an average rating. Our expectations of cleanliness were not met but the location was nice and the staff over delivered.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great stay at the location. The street is full of local residents so we did not have too much noise at night. This house is inappropriate for loud parties. We did not want to be in the middle of a party street. Wished we were a bit closer to the beach but it was not inconvenient at all. Loved the two car garage and double bathrooms. We had plenty of space and it was perfect for what we wanted to do. We were able to relax while our kids had their own space upstairs with lounge area and outdoor patio. We will come back. White slip covers in the main room will look interesting at the end of the summer.
