Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing time here! We were impressed on how close the beach was. The place was perfect and we will be coming back again. Very clean and beautifully decorated. Michelle was very prompt on getting back with any questions and Rollo was very sweet and hospitable. Our favorite place to eat was chronic taco and the donut shop across the street by Jack in the box.

Wonderful Beach Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our family vacation and it was a wonderful experience! The house is right next to a great spot on the beach. It's close enough to the pier to walk or ride bikes to, but not too close so it wasn't crowded. There were beach chairs, toys, umbrellas, boogie boards, and bikes for us to enjoy during our stay. The house itself was very nice and clean, large kitchen and living room, beds were comfortable, and there was plenty of space for our group of 8 people. We loved it! It was a great trip! Thank you!

Had everything and more!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely Labor Day weekend at the house. Rollo greeted us on arrival and was super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. He even helped hold a street parking spot for our second car! I forgot one of the door codes and he immediately got back to me even though it was late Friday night. So nice!

The unit was SPOTLESS on arrival - so clean! We had plenty of room for our family - my husband and I, two teenagers, two middle schoolers and 4 and 5 year old. The master bed room is enormous. Seriously humongous. Having a kind bed was so great. The secondary bedrooms fit the older kids easily, and the little ones slept in the master on the daybed/trundle and we did not feel crowded at all. All the rooms had fans which was awesome as well.

The kitchen had everything we needed - dishes, pots, pans, utensils, knives, pitchers etc. It was summer so we did have to bring our own bed linens and towels, but that wasn't a big deal at all. The garage was STOCKED with beach goodies like chairs, coolers, paddleball, boogie boards. The garage is small and has a funny angle to get into it, but our smaller suv crossover did fit into it. A suburban wouldn't, but our Veracruz was fine.

Our family loved using the bikes, which was one of the best features of the house, especially with 10 and 11 year old boys! We could walk easily to donuts, pizza, a park and a little Circle K for milk or beers.

The street was super peaceful and quiet, but not at all like you felt you had to whisper. Just families and locals, no partying college kids, even over a holiday weekend. It was so relaxing!

We would definitely go back and recommend it! The property management was professional, accommodating and friendly and our deposit was returned I think by the evening we checked out. Literally 30 seconds to the beach - it was great!

Amazing location for beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo. It is spacious, clean and provides all the basic amenities as well as some bonus items. We used the bikes, boogie boards, sand toys, beach chairs, and umbrellas every single day. It is a quick walk to the beach (less than half a block) and a quick walk to nearby restaurants and markets. There was really no need for a car on this trip! If we find ourselves back in Newport Beach, we will rent this unit again in a heartbeat. Thank you!

Perfect beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our ten day stay and have already booked our third year in a row! The condo is beautiful, spacious, and immaculately maintained with enough room for ten. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked for cooking. The neighborhood is quiet at night and close to a convenience store and a couple of great restaurants; the pier is only about a half mile away but this area is much quieter and less crowded. This was a relaxing, charming, and fun getaway that's perfect for families with kids or teens. The condo is equipped with bikes and boogie boards -- perfect for all ages. It's a couple of miles from Balboa and the Catalina ferry, but there's plenty to do without driving anywhere. We can't wait to

go back!

Great condo an location

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautiful and is true to the pictures you see on line, The master bedroom is very big and nice. There was plenty of room to add a play and pack for my grandson. The condo has lots of cupboard space in the master bedroom and bathroom. I like "things" picked up and put away. We were able to that with the storage that is provided. It was fun to have the garage fully equipped with toys and chairs for the beach. Nice location to walk back to the condo for nap time. We took a walk and found a darling house that is decorated like the pirates of the Caribbean from Disneyland, Very fun to look at, We had a great time. Rollo is very helpful when checking you in and answering questions. We hope to go back next summer, 4 days was not enough time!

Location, Location, location!

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! Wow what a great place to stay! I lived in Southern California my entire life until I moved out of state 15 yrs ago and when I was a kid growing up Newport Beach was always our home beach to go to. When I found the HappiTravels website (and as a child my dream was to always have a house right there at Newport beach) and when I saw what they offered I thought it was "too good to be true" but boy was I wrong. From the beginning of the process Michelle was awesome and detailed. Then once we got to the property and met Rollo (who is a wealth of knowledge and experience) everything was as described and advertised. I mean every detail was covered, house was in immaculate condition. Kitchen was stocked with everything that you would need to prepare home cooked meals (minus the food of course) which was easy to obtain with the major grocery store right down the street. Garage was stocked with bikes , boogie boards, sand toys for the kids, beach chairs, etc... The convenience factor of the location to everything is a major plus as well and with easy access to pretty much all major Southern California freeways (in the area) you really have nothing to complain about. Oh yeah and then there is the walk to the beach and yes it is an easy walk maybe less than 100 ft. Easy to haul stuff down with you and easy to return throughout the day whether its for a nap, a snack, if you forgot something or just headed back after a long day on the beautiful Newport Beach sands. This is our 2nd summer in a row and I can't wait to book our trip back again next summer ('17) as well. I would like to thank Michelle and Rollo for all the preparation, hard work and perfection,as they have this process down to a science and you can tell!
