Great place. Great service. Great location

We really enjoyed our stay. The amenities and space were perfect. And it is located a short walk from the beach, restaurants and grocery store. The property managers were attentive to our needs.

Great stay for a large family close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Newport Beach. The house is very close to the beach. We used the backpack beach chairs and bikes. We even used a boogie board twice and the sand toys. The house comfortably slept 16. The four bathrooms made it easy too. The patio and balcony added to the living space. The location is close to a convenience store and strip mall with a bakery, taco shop, and more. I recommend Chronic Tacos! We parked a small SUV in the garage It was tight but it fit. Parking on the street can be a challenge. But it wasn’t too bad. We really enjoyed our stay - the location and accommodations made it great. My wife’s family commended me for the choice.

so close to the ocean!!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved it. Very close short walk to beach. We went to area parks, ie; Disney and knotts and it was very well located for all our needs. We plan on trying to book a beach only stay in the future. Thank you for all the bikes, chairs, etc.

Super close to the beach, roomy, plenty of boogie boards and bikes!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 15 rented both units in October and were very satisfied. A quick walk to the beautiful beach, and many bikes for our use to ride around town and to get to the boardwalk several blocks away.

Our kids loved the boogie boards. The accommodations were clean and comfortable.

Parking was a little more of a hassle because of our big suburban, but we were able to make it work despite not being able to use the garage. Tips from the owners were helpful.

Would definitely stay here again!

Both units were lovely and had everything we needed to have a wonderful stay! We will return.

  • 5 of 5

We rented both units for a family reunion. There were 14 of us and we had plenty of room. We had seven children at the reunion, ages 16 months to 12, and everyone had a great time. We loved the patio and the two minute walk to the beach. They have thought of everything we needed to enjoy the beach and our stay.
