Costa Mesa Condo Rental Photos and Description

If you like to stroll, hike, run, bike or swim in the ocean, this newly remodeled condo is close to the beach, parks, running and bike trails. Just under two miles to the beach, you’ll be steps away from Fairview Park and Talbert Nature Preserve in Costa Mesa. You’ll be 5 miles from Huntington Beach Pier; 7 miles from Balboa Island; 14 miles from the art colony of Laguna Beach, and only 13 miles from Disneyland. What are you waiting for?

The “Mermaid Lounge” has kitchen, living/dining area, two bedrooms, a full bath (Jack and Jill) and a half bath downstairs. With tile throughout, it’s okay if you bring in a little beach sand. Upstairs there’s new carpeting in the loft next to a ¾ bath. According to VRBO, the average hotel room is 325 sq. ft. Here you can bring your groceries and spread out in about1,300 sq. ft. Just right for a maximum of 6 guests. Master bedroom has a king size bed, loft has a queen size, and the “surf room” has a daybed plus room for two small beds for little ones. The kitchen provides what you need for preparing meals with mostly new appliances; use spices or anything you can find there. The washer and dryer are just around the corner in the hallway where you'll find all the laundry supplies you will need.

Clean, uncluttered and comfortable, you can unwind here or scurry off to your choice of Southern California attractions. You may even want to sign up for sailing lessons at the Orange Coast College School of Sailing and Seamanship whether you are just starting or have sailed before. You don’t have to leave Newport Bay to enjoy a fabulous day on the water.

Head through Fairview Park and down the hill to pick up the Santa Ana River Bicycle Trail. Turn left and you’re at the beach in about 2.5 miles. Or, turn right and bike the rest of the 30 mile trail to Riverside County.

Surf lessons? We can refer you to our favorite instructors. Model airplane enthusiast? There is a flying field (electric only) in Fairview Park.

Oh, and if you play the piano …bring your music because we have one here.

About Kathleen Winnie

Grandma, girlfriend, sailor, traveler, retired Sales Manager, I am rarely home so why not share a nice place to stay for travelers. At various times my guy, family and I have used VRBO to enjoy the country from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, to Bend,Oregon. We enjoy the weather here the most; it is nearly perfect year round. And, there are so many things to do!

Kathleen Winnie purchased this condo in 2007

Why Kathleen Winnie chose Costa Mesa

Close to the beach and many attractions, one of my favorite things about my property is that it nestled among the trees in a quiet, safe complex with very nice neighbors.

Kathleen is a great host!

  • 5 of 5
Not only is this house in a nice location- close to the beach and not far from disneyland and other attractions- but it is very well kept. Kathleen does her best to provide you with the essentials you need on vacation. Much more than you would get in a hotel. It's like home away from home. She is also glad to help and to answer any questions you may have. We were traveling with little ones, and I can't imagine a better place to stay with your children... Daybed and toddler bed in one bedroom, and even a pack-n-play upon request. ...Oh and I must mention: the beach pass is awesome! We also had a minor mishap on our visit, and Kathleen was very understanding and went above and beyond to help us out.

A true home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
In our 5 years of renting vacation homes, this one tops the chart! The property was clean, well-maintained, spacious, bright and airy We felt like we were staying in a secluded cottage, deep in the forest, because it was just so quiet there. The owner was so nice and made sure that we felt at home and enjoyed our stay. The place is incredibly well-stocked (tea, coffee, sugar, spices, napkins, plastic wrap, laundry detergent, soaps, you name it!) and there were plenty of books and toys to keep the little ones entertained. There were also beach toys, towels, umbrellas and a beach parking pass for us to use. We used the beach parking pass to go to Huntington beach which was a short, easy drive away. We took the kids there one evening to watch the sunset and make s'mores over a beach fire. We loved our stay and had such a relaxing time! Highly recommended!

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at the Mermaid Lounge the last week in April. The property was very nice, clean and well maintained. We enjoyed Disneyland, a 25 minute drive, Sea World, a 90 minute drive and Universal Studios, a 60 minute drive and of course multiple beaches just minutes away. There were 5 of us total and we found the accommodations and experience to be exceptional. Kathleen is the wonderful and thoughtful owner of this property. There were minor maintenance issues that were resolved quite quickly, efficiently and Kathleen was more than happy to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and provided great customer service. I can't say enough about her extra effort. We highly recommend this property, the location was perfect for our needs and itinerary. If we return to the area we will give Kathleen a call again.

Perfect family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
My family went to California for our son's wedding and needed a place to stay for 5 people.
Kathleen attended right away when things were needed, fixing the Wi-fi and providing a new ironing board; she even provided make-up remover wipes for us. The house was clean and nice, and felt like a second home. The location was convenient for shopping, sight-seeing, and going to the beach. We loved the experience and would definitely recommend the experience for others, and plan to return again someday.

Excellent family rental

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and kids (12 and 16) had an excellent week staying in Costa Mesa, our third spring break stay on the same street, first at this location. Clean, quiet and accommodating in every way, we looked forward to getting "home" at day's end. Ten minutes to Newport, 25 to Laguna and 25 to Disneyland via freeways. Fairview Park at end of street is a great place to walk early morning. Close to grocery stores and restaurants. Hostess Kathleen was A+ from the moment we connected on vrbo.com, answered our questions patiently and was a phone call or text away if the need arose, which it didn't. We definitely will be back! Thank you, Kathleen!

Fabulous family rental

  • 5 of 5
With 2 adults, and 4 children 2,5, 11 and 13 it is hard to please everyone... But this place did. The little ones had their own little zone with toys. The jack and Jill bathroom was perfect to share with us. The older ones had their own loft space which made them feel very grown up.
Cooking, washing/drying clothes was too easy... It's an easy 25 mins to disneyland, close to lots of supermarkets, shops and fast food, and of course the beach& the kids had a swim and play in the sand with the beach toys from the house. It was our home base for 11 days and we could have stayed longer.
We couldn't have asked for more... Thanks Kathleen!
