Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

This place has a great location. With all the amenities within walking distance. A liquor store and a variety of restraunts to chose from. The sushi restraunt "Fuji Yama" was delicious and had great service. The water is very close from the house just a few feet to a very nice beach. The house had very comfortable beds and everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The house is very cozy and was clean very inviting the moment we walked in. We will definitely stay here again and recommend this place to anyone that is looking for the perfect beach house get away. :)

Great space and location!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented the house for a girls weekend. It is centrally located in Newport, a very short walk to the beach. Came equipped with bikes, and beach chairs, etc. The house is spacious and super clean. Parking is a challenge, but it always is at the beach. We would all rent his house again!

Our California Winter

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting this unit for 6 years now. The owners are incredible to work with. If we have a problem, they respond immediately and figure it out for us. This year was an exceptional year for us with the lovely weather and improvements made to the unit. The new kitchen is beautiful and still allows us to see the ocean while cooking. The new keypad for the door was our favorite new addition. We use the bikes to ride to the various restaurants and grocery store so some days we never get out the car. The unit is close to the Newport Boardwalk which we walk every day. We carry our chairs over to the ocean which is a 3 minute walk. We would recommend this unit for a short or long stay.

One of the best for our family

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in VRBO's and AirBnB's all over the states and Europe. This cottage-style home was perfect for our family with 2 teenagers. I think what makes it so wonderful are the owners who are accommodating and fill the house with essentials like plenty beach towels, bath towels, blankets, paper towels, soap etc. The sun coming into the kitchen/living area is so welcomed each morning. The beds and pillows are amazingly comfortable. The upstairs unit is bright, airy and has a nice deck that we enjoyed each evening. The kitchen and baths are all renovated. The fact that the owners provide nice beach bike cruisers is a plus. With teens,

biking to the Newport pier, Balboa pier and around town is super easy. The beach is a quick cut through. For our first visit to this area, we feel very lucky to have picked this place and wish we could stay a few days longer.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words. You were our very first guests to enjoy the completely remodeled Kitchen. We’re glad you liked how it turned out. Thanks again. George

This is our third time staying here and we really enjoyed it once again. We love the location.

  • 4 of 5

The property is roomy and comfortable for just a two bedrooms and two bathrooms. We hosted 12 people for Thanksgiving and had no problem making everything work. The host even bought us a new turkey roasting pan. Having a parking space is a plus even though the people behind us sometimes block the entry to the garage. They always moved the cars when we asked so just be prepared for that scenario. Also, Having bikes with bike locks and beach chairs come in useful also. Easy walk to the beach and pier.
