Why Owner chose Lido Isle
This is one of the most beautiful spots along the southern California coastline, very reminiscent of the Amalfi coastline in southern Italy, but with convenient access to all of Southern California's attractions, including the beach, Disneyland, Sea World, Universal Studios, the Getty Museum, and many others. This home guarantees you the privacy, luxury, convenience, and comfort you deserve and are looking for while 'getting away,' while also granting you the option of fun, spontaneity, and adventure!

Luxurious Island Oasis
Booking this piece of paradise is highly recommended! After an exhaustive search of many properties, we selected this property for a very special multi-generational family vacation. (Group of 7, ages 4-77). We wanted to create closeness, but also allow for privacy, and luxury, but also to feel close to the natural surroundings. This home exceeded our highest expectations in all areas. The layout is thoughtful, with families in mind. Quality, tasteful and comfortable decor and furnishings throughout and appliances top notch. Beautifully decorated, no detail was spared. The kitchen is modern and well stocked with new, high-end appliances and the bathrooms sparkle with luxury. All towels and linens are 5 stars. In and out there are cozy nooks and places to enjoy the sea salt air while reading, entertaining, or enjoying intimate conversations. Extra touches throughout reflect pride of ownership. Optimal location for exploring all of Newport and surrounding beaches, but tucked away in a secure and safe, quiet residential area so you feel like you almost have your own private island! Owners Gigi and Nicole were responsive, and warm and really committed to ensuring we enjoyed our stay, which we all certainly did. It felt almost like borrowing a good friend's vacation home, which we plan to do, again, soon!!!
We are traveling from Provence, France. Your house is magnifique! It is a long way for us from France, but well worth the trip! The furnishings in your home were exquisite and elegant - wonderful coordinated decor. This house was even more beautiful than the pictures we see on the internet. The home was extremely clean and everything we needed. It really fit our entire family very comfortable. We spent our time on the beach, body surfing, biking, kayaking, surfing, walking, relaxing on the patio, and entertaining friends and family from France that also visited your area. We enjoyed the nearby restaurants that we walked to from the house - especially the Cannery and Sabatinos. My husband really liked the large flat screen TV in the master and I loved the quality beds and linens and fabulous kitchen. Many nights we ate dinner outside in the private enclosed patio for bar-b-que. At sunset, we enjoyed the view from the second story veranda. We had a nice and relaxed vacation and the weather was excellent. This home is in a quiet street but you are close to all the activities so we enjoyed the best of both worlds. We highly recommend this property. So much better than a hotel. No comparison. Thank you! We will visit again - Merci Beaucoup!

Gem on Lido Island!
We stayed in this Lido Island property for our family reunion/summer holiday - all 8 of us. I have to say that the pictures on HomeAway don't do this amazing home justice! It's obvious when you walk through the door that the owner put a lot of love into the home - every finish is upscale and the decor and setting is very pristine. The house is perfect for large groups - enough space to spread out and get away if you want to.
The kitchen is well stocked and each of the bedrooms had comfortable beds and pillows. If you have a NetFlix account you can sign in to watch your movies. Our kids enjoyed using the outdoor shower after long days at the beach.
The house is off the beaten path - very private island. Kids enjoyed seeing the paddle boarding and kayaking which is right next to the property and also renting duffy boats. We had a blast on the gondola rides which reminded us of Venice.
Our favorite restaurant, steps off the island was the Bear Flag Fish- great seafood at reasonable prices. Place your order at the counter, then go grab a seat at one of the picnic tables outside or inside at the sushi counter.
The owner exceeded our expectations and is a really nice. All emails were answered quickly, met us at the house when we arrived, and was available during our stay via text.
If you're thinking about staying here and see that it's available - BOOK IT - you'll have a stay you'll never forget.
Wonderful family vacation!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this comfortable home in a perfect location. A short bike ride to the beach, and our kids were jumping off the "Jaws" bridge! My daughter especially liked the shopping and the charm of Lido and the peninsula, within easy walking distance from the house - we walked to great cafes, the Lido theatre - and our favorite- Bear Flag for fresh sushi almost every day. We cooked lobsters and steaks, grilled outside, and enjoyed meals outdoors on the enclosed comfy patio. The kitchen is spacious and fully equipped. The beds are very comfortable, as is the living room and family room. The house comes completely equipped with everything you need for the beach - toys, towels, snorkel gear, boogie boards, umbrellas & chairs, you get the idea. A spacious back yard offers plenty of room to throw a ball around and play games with the kids. Between the great shopping just a few minutes away and Fashion Island and South Coast Plaza, and the great privacy of the island, we are looking forward to coming back next summer!
Gorgeous clean beach family vacation rental!
This property is a gem, nestled among other beautiful homes on Lido Island. Ideal for a family, it's just across the street from a private beach and playground for the kids and adults can take advantage of the docks and SUP rentals. In addition to the upstairs master BR, there are three other BRs that share a Jack and Jill bath and nice shower. Of course, the master BR has its own large bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and an attached cedar closet. The bathroom heater was especially welcome on a chilly November morning.
We've stayed in many vacation rental homes but this one was the most immaculately clean that I've ever seen. There was not one spot of dust on any surface. The spaces are comfortable and very nicely decorated. The linens are first-rate, too.
Most importantly the owner was very responsive to all emails and questions. She answered every email, phone call or text within minutes and made sure we all had the best time.
Will definitely be back and have already referred family and friends!
Location, location, location. This home is in the best place - we could walk to restaurants, the beach, kayaking. My family was in heaven! The pictures don't do it justice. Great spot for relaxing and enjoying what Newport has to offer. Recommending this property to all our friends!
Spring is $4950, roughly $6,000 less than what you'd pay for a similar size villa at the nearby Pelican Hill Resort. Instead of living at a hotel, you have a 4 Bedroom, 3,200 sq feet inside & you can visit the resort absolutely free. Going the beach? The house is equipped with everything you need. 4 Beach chairs, Umbrella, 2 Boogie Boards, beach towels, & a small cooler to take to the beach with you! Smoking Question?
Our big backyard allows for you or anyone you travel w/ to smoke outside. We have no problems with that. There is absolutely no smoking inside the home.
Maid Service...If you need maid service while you are there, just let me know and I can arrange to have my regular cleaning people to come by (we have the house cleaned every two weeks)&make sure the house is spotless while you are out of the house enjoying the area. The house will be cleaned right before you arrive. The neighborhood is like living in a nice resort.

You can also rent a gondola with a gondolier for a romantic sunset harbor cruise & our of the bay and islands. Not to mention that within walking or biking distance is the world famous Newport Beach Jetty for a day of sun, surfing and just relaxing. (There is a bike rental shop a couple of blocks from the property, just off the island.) Lots to do for kids and adults. If you feel like staying close to the house, there are 2 private beaches on the island. One is fully equipped with playground equipment for the kids. The other beach has a snack bar, thatched umbrellas, and a water slide anchored just feet from the sand - just take towels and add our sunshine! :-)
