Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Newport Beach - Balboa Island area

Properties owned by Crashing Waves Cabana Inc are extremely popular and are typically booked 95% of the year. Generally speaking vacation rentals with high occupancy rates tend to be the most well priced with the closest proximity to the beach and to downtown.

Crashing Waves Cabana LLC, welcomes you to Newport Beach, the most beautiful beach in California. Two houses from the sand and two house from the bay, this newly remodeled, 900 square foot two bedroom, one bathroom luxury condominium is ideally located west of Pacific Coast Highway and is a 15 second walk to one of the top rated beaches in the United States, according to the Men's Journal Magazine. Many celebrities have beach homes in the area, used to get away from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood.

Some of the most exclusive hotels in the world have developed world class five-star resorts in our community to take advantage of this beautiful beach paradise. Having traveled extensively around the world, we worked diligently to think of everything you will need to have the best vacation ever, in a cost effective manner. We designed our home to be peaceful, romantic and yet cozy. The main living space offers beautiful Italian tile, a gourmet kitchen, artwork by local artists, a 50 inch plasma screen TV and very comfortable couches that turns into beds.

The kitchen has all of the utensils and appliances you will need to cook wonderful meals, and the dining area seats four.

The master bedroom offers gorgeous carpets, a queen-sized bed with finely appointed 500 thread count linens and a 42 inch big screen TV.

Our second bedroom also offers beautiful tile floors and a 42 inch flat screen TV/DVD. The bedroom has two twin beds that can be combined to form a King bed.

Our location is ideal, with everything you need close by. There are over 40 casual to upscale restaurants, boutiques and art galleries within a five minute stroll.

The world famous art colony, Laguna Beach, is a few miles to the South. The surfing capital of the US, Huntington Beach is a few miles to the north. Catalina Island is a 1-hour ferry .ride from our harbor.

Its so close to the beach and bay, a short walk to great restaurants and shops. You really never have to get in a car once you arrive.

We booked this property for a spring break vaca for my daughters and I and this location was awesome! The property manager was easy to work with and was quick to answer any questions and accommodate us. We arrived to a clean unit, it is small, but perfect for a small family who wants to vacation near the beach and the fun zone. I would definitely recommend this property and will for sure rebook in the future!

Still hot in October without fans working full capacity

  • 2 of 5

The lights and fans did not work properly and the old dirty blinds were off and behind the furniture. The place needs a good cleaning. At first glance, the place looked ok and charming. The people upstairs must have had a little one who loved to run a lot.

Great Summer Deal

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect location for those that are looking for a reasonable place close to all the action. The location is just about halfway between the Balboa and Newport piers which can be reached in a couple of minutes on bikes, or about a 10 min walk. Plenty of restaurants and nightlife spots at both piers. The beach is about 150 yards away so you don't have to worry if you forget something if you go out to the water because you can easily go back and get it. The condo came with one parking spot but the side street is free parking too. You may not be able to get a spot on the free street when you first arrive but by evening or the next morning something should open up. Both bedrooms and the living room and nice TV's and the house was equipped with WiFi for those that don't want to completely escape their lives. There were also several other amenities that we didn't need to take advantage of because we brought our own, towels, chairs, games etc. Even though you could sleep 6 at this location because both of the front couches fold down I wouldn't recommend it because there is just one bathroom. I highly recommend this location for groups of 4 or less and will definitely seek it out next time we are heading that way.

Great vacationing spot!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here for our senior trip and it was perfect! The house is a two-minute walk from the beach, which was very convenient. Shops start popping up within a 10 minute walk, so we were able to just park the car and really never use it until the end of our stay. The house had loads of towels (beach and bath) and a washer/dryer which made our stay so much more pleasant. There were also beach chairs and an umbrella that were super handy because we didn't think to ring those things. The kitchen was really pretty nice with a full-sized fridge, freezer, and cabinets with plenty of glasses, plates, and silverware. We didn't have any problems with noise even though we knew there were people staying upstairs. Overall, it was a great stay and I would absolutely come back and stay again!

Memorial Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The rental is in a fantastic location and gave us easy access to the beach (right across the street!). A quick walk down the boardwalk and we were at the pier! The rental came equipped with various beach items that were definitely a plus. Great kitchen made it easy to cook and the rental was very clean and neat.

Would definitely come back and stay again

Updated but small

  • 2 of 5

We were expecting a different location based on pictures and descriptions. This very small 2 bedroom is located across a busy street from the beach. You will have to do quite a bit of walking to get to the pier or other dining /shopping. Good thing we didn't bring our kids for this trip. They wouldn't have fit anyway. The owners are very easy to work with and we had good communication. Also very affordable for a quick get away. This house is perfect for 2 adults, 4 max. The area is not family friendly.

As with most condo's at the beach in Southern California, this property does not have air conditioning. Because day time temperatures are normally in the low 70s and night time temperatures in the high 50s in normally unnecessary. The sea breeze also tends to act as a natural coolant.
