Great Home, Great Beach, Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed at several rental homes over the years, and this one is top notch. The home is decorated so nicely, that I was taking pictures of their towel racks and other items because I want one just like it! It was comfortable and perfect for our family. It had everything we needed for a great vacation, like boogie boards, bikes, baskets for the bikes to carry our camera, sand toys, chairs, and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need. The bedding was all super comfy, and we all slept great. This home is the PERFECT location. About a 60 second walk and our feet were in the sand. Newport Beach has got to be my favorite in Cali, and I've been to a lot! We didn't move our car for 4 days as we walked to everything, grocery store 5 minutes, restaurants everywhere and the best little donut shop about 2 minutes from the house. We really loved this home and would stay here again in a heartbeat. Matina was also so easy to work with. She answered emails quickly and was so flexible. Thanks for a wonderful vacation!

Great beach house!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this great Newport beach house for 2 weeks. Fantastic location and it really is steps to the sand. Mostly everything is in walking distance; groceries, places to eat, etc. We were 2 families (8 people) and we fit comfortably. The top floor, which is where we stayed had modern amenities and that was definitely a plus and having a full size washer and dryer was amazing. We used this beach house as our home base and were able to do some travelling in and around L.A., Santa Monica, Laguna just to name a few because they were not very far by car. We had rented a 7 seater minivan which was a bit of a tight squeeze in the garage. It's a beach town so to have parking is actually a luxury. Would, and have recommended this property to family and friends. It made our first trip out to California a memorable one!

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed a week at the beach house and I cannot say enough great things about it, and Matina! We were 6 adults and 2 small children, and while the place is on the small side, it was so well-laid out and organized that we were quite comfortable together. Everything you need is provided, including beach toys/chairs/towels, kitchen items (including basic spices), bathroom towels, bed linens, washer/dryer, cable, wireless, etc. We cooked about half the time and found everything we needed. The master bedroom is a great size. We brought twin air mattresses for the kids since they would be going to bed too early to utilize the couch bed, and they fit on either side of the master bed easily. Master also has a huge walk-in closet with enough space to store our suitcases and still access shoes, clothes, etc. The garage is shared with another car, and the space is tight, so don't bring a car larger than a full size sedan. Great perk to not have to street-park! We went to Disney and Legoland, so we needed a car, but otherwise would not have needed it much. The beach is steps away, and there are bikes in the garage for anything further. We had an awesome time and Matina went above and beyond to make sure everything was right. We would love to return for another family trip!

Great place to stay and enjoy the beach

  • 5 of 5
I celebrated my 40th birthday here and had the time of my life. The location is great, walking distance to the grocery store, bars, restaurants, and of course the beach. Really good floor plan, rooms are good size and two bathrooms is a huge plus. The place was clean and had everything you needed for cooking. We had friends visit and they all loved the accommodations.I would definitely stay here again.

Great location. Well appointed house.

  • 5 of 5
Three of us stayed here for 6 days and loved the property. Everything that we needed to spend a week at the beach, and have friends over to visit, was in the house. The bikes were in good condition, the apartment was very clean and modern, there was a view of the sea and there is even a private patio off the, very big, master bedroom. The photos are accurate representations of what you will see when you arrive.
The location was quiet but close enough to the grocery store and bars and restaurants to mean we didn't need the car.
We were able to park our Chevrolet, Trax SUV in the garage without a problem even when the six bikes were in there. We could have parked something bigger if needed.
Matina was helpful and efficient with everything. We will definitely go back next time we are in Newport.

Great family get away!

  • 5 of 5
We wanted something close to the beach and that's just what we got. We had a great time staying at Matinas place in Newport. At first we were bummed because of the 9am check out, but we're happily compensated when we were able to come a day earlier. That def made it that much more relaxing. The unit is great. Perfect size for our family of three. We could've had more ppl but enjoyed our space. The unit was clean, had lots of toys and umbrellas and beach chairs and even a great amount of cruisers. We loved that.

Our biggest issue was parking. There is a space in the garage but unfortunately with the bikes hung on the ceiling we weren't able to get our SUV in the garage. Also it was around spring break so parking was somewhat annoying, but it's to be expected. And though there were cruisers, we had to rent a bike trailer for our three year old so that we could utilize the bikes. I'd also recommend a wrench and bike tool so that the seats could be adjusted, I'm short and luckily the neighbor behind was kind enough to help out. Having a tv in the bedroom was perfect because we couldn't figure out the main one, but it didn't matter cause we were only there in the eves.

It was great being able to make our own food and have all the amenities of home. The unit made great use of every corner in the kitchen. The washer/dryer was great, internet, cable, beds were comfy, and we had plenty of towels. The neighborhood on Friday night was a bit loud and sketchy watching some of the spring breakers walk around, but again, it was during spring break.

Overall we had a fabulous time! Loved renting and working with the owner was better than anticipated. I'd def recommend this unit for anyone, girls weekend, young couples to old couples and families too. Just be advised about parking and if u have littles u may have to rent a bike trailer to enjoy the cruisers. Thank you for a great anniversary/spring break vacation!
