Wow, what a great place to stay! Super convenient location, walking distance to grocery store, restaurants, and most importantly the beach! Less than 5 min and you are on the sand. The house itself is very nicely appointed - with 3 of us it was plenty roomy. Beds were very comfortable and excellent breezy airflow made things just right even during a heat wave. Very functional kitchen, we made several meals and my wife even baked cookies. Also, a lot of nice extras here, such as the front patio with grill, bicycles, beach chairs and a well-appointed bathroom with ample towels. If you are coming to this area of Newport Beach, be aware that parking can be tough, especially on the weekends. Thankfully, a one-car garage is provided, that makes life much more bearable. But hey, down here why are you driving? Just walk a few blocks and sit out on the sand! Gloria, the owner and the host manager Linda were extremely gracious and helpful. Our 3 year old had a blast, too.. I would highly recommend this to any party of say 4, (maybe 5) or fewer. My Newport Beach recommendations - 1) The Beach!! - 2) Rent a bike or skate the boardwalk path - 3) Alta Coffee house, a quick walk and 4) Bear Flag Fish company, also a quick walk away. Oh yeah and one more - Sancho's tacos for a great breakfast burrito..
