Ground floor so wheelchairs can make it.( but no wheelchair access doors available). Nice fenced outside patio with a barbeque, great for evenings after the beach all day. We have several bikes you can use! Drive 10 minutes to the multiplex movie theater, or rent a movie and kick back in comfort. Walking distance to Newport Pier, the Plaza, or tons of great restaurants. Only 25 minutes from both Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm, and LA Angles Stadium. 40 minutes from LA Dodger Stadium.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The house is older but the location is great!! Our kids loved the complimentary bicycles too. Having garage space for our vehicle was a plus (our Dodge Durango fit with no problem) and we walked everywhere. Shops are close and the beach is a block away. We loved having the doors and windows open to smell the sea air!

Wonderful location and amenities with plenty of room to relax.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 (4 kids between ages 7 and 15) really enjoyed staying here. The location is very convenient to rent paddle boards just up the street to use in the harbor. There were bikes and boogey boards included with the house and we used them! Neighbors were quiet and the garage was a great feature to keep our van secure while we spent days at the beach or around the peninsula and Balboa Island. We really have no complaints about the property - it was perfect for us.

Over all very happy with our vacation

  • 4 of 5

Description and pictures were very accurate. Good communication with owners. We had to call the a couple of times and they responded timely. Nice to have a garage to park in since there is no free parking anywhere. The house was clean. Close to a great park where kids could play and have fun. Great location. Only critique is that the beds are not that comfortable. Other than that we had a great time. I would recommend this home to any family. The best thing about it was the location. Thank you for a fun stay.

Had a Great Stay at this cute Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

Our family met to celebrate Thanksgiving together. The house is small (we knew that coming in), but it was warm and welcoming to all who came to celebrate! We loved the location to the restaurants, pier and walking path, all within walking distance. The owners provided games and bikes and we used them daily.

We had a wonderful time and would love to come again!

Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location in Newport- one block to the beach, one to the bay. Not fancy but very comfortable and lacking nothing. We loved having the bikes available and used them every day. The host was gracious and very easy to work with. I would rent this place again without reservation.

Car: not necessary

Newport Beach CA is one of the most beautiful resort towns in the USA. Conveniently located at the end of the Newport Freeway (55), the beach house is only 20 minutes from LA Angles Stadium and Disneyland and only 45 minutes from LA Dodger Stadium and downtown LA. But why go anywhere? Millions of things to do between Balboa Island (5 minutes away) and busy Costa Mesa with full services (10 minutes away). Not to mention the best beach in California only a 5 minute walk!

Other Activities: Beach volleyball
