Great location for the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this Venice Property! We all slept great and found its proximity to the beach ideal! The bogey boards were a plus as was having a parking space in a garage. Fully stocked kitchen allowed easy cooking. Can't say a thing bad about this place!

This is a good one!

  • 5 of 5

Great location and really only seconds from the beach. We stayed and played in Newport for two days then two days at Disney and this house was a great spot for both. Rollo who greets you as you first arrive is a wealth of knowledge and the communication with Michelle was great. Great folks! We had the bottom unit and it had all we needed. Would definitely stay at one of the HappiTravels rentals again.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start. I have stayed at two of the five different rentals available. Each unit is equipped with everything you need and just eight houses down from the beautiful sand beaches. Each unit has beach cruisers available to ride up and down the boardwalk which is my favorite. I'm a last-minute kind of person and I directly call the owner to see if anything is available and she's always very accommodating if any of her units are available which most the time there's no availabilities There's always somebody here to greet you and welcome you in when you get here and if anything goes wrong they're here within 5 10 minutes to fix it. I would recommend any of her properties to anybody. When I leave they've rented all the units for 35 women to come in. Look up Happi travels next time your looking for an awesome vacation.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time a this house. It is so close to the beach and close to everything you need. We loved having the bikes to ride down the board walk. If we had any questions Michelle was so good to respond immediately. I will absolutely stay here again. It was the perfect house in the perfect location and it made our stay so nice!

Clean, Comfortable and Good location

  • 3 of 5

We are a family of 4 with 2 children who stayed at this property for a Disneyland trip in late Jan. The condo was very clean and comfortable. The location is sweet, you can see the ocean from the street. Distance to Disney was about 20-30 mins depending on traffic. There is a little strip mall just down the street where you can have your choice of a restaurants, coffee and a circle K type convenience store. We ate at the Japanese restaurant and can say that it was great and good value. Grocery stores all within cycling distance and driving distance. Rollo greats you to let you in the property and provides you with a generous amount of information on the area. The owner is very quick to respond , as we requested a cooler for packing a lunch and she provided one to us within mins. We usually stay in San Diego or Del Mar on our SoCal visits, but this time due to our Disney trip decided Newport would work better. Lots of rentals on this street we didn't see it at high season when the parties could be ongoing. The only negatives that I might point out is parking.....there isn't much of it. Again this wasn't high season and we still had trouble finding parking on the street in front of the condo. The condo has a small 1 car garage at the back of the property, however, it can only fit an economy rental car or smaller. Keep this in mind when renting your vehicle. The kitchen is missing some cooking extras like spices, oils, vinegars, sugar.... normally we rent condos/houses and there is a little bit of cooking supply and it would have been great to have some of that as well as we did eat in regularly (not a deal breaker of course, just a note of a nice value add). No one was occupying the upstairs rental, so we cannot comment on the potential noise factor. We had a nice quiet comfortable stay.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and are now a part of our HappiTravels family! For future visits we do have a major grocery store 1 minute away and two convenience stores right across the street for future visits if the spice cabinet is low on your needs. Some guests do not like to use open spices, etc. Yes I have actually had to throw out all open spices at a guests request as she did not want to use food stuff other guests had used. We do emphasize in our ad and all our detailed emails sent to our guests prior to their arrival regarding parking . Parking at the beach is precious for all the popular properties in Newport. We bend over backwards to please our guests and always try to fulfill all guests requests. On future visits please ask and we will do our best to accommodate your requests.
