About Patrick

I'm originally from Canada.

Patrick purchased this condo in 1994

Why Patrick chose Newport Beach and Balboa Island Area

My dream was an oceanfront condominium in the center of a small Village type walking community. Where the sun always shines so bright and the big city lights are just across the bay.

What makes this condo unique

This oceanfront unit is walking distance to the world famous Balboa Fun Zone and the Balboa Island Ferry, which takes you to Balboa Island, boat rentals, bikes & Segway rentals, rollerblade rentals, fabulous fine dining, cozy cafes, coffee shops, local eateries, shopping, spa services and the Balboa pier.

Close to all Southern California attractions such as Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm. Enjoy shopping and fine dining at South Coast Plaza or Fashion Island. Laguna Beach is just a short drive south on historic Pacific Coast Highway or travel north to 'Surf City' Huntington Beach. Easy access to all major freeways.

Newport Beach, California is a world-renowned coastal resort area with miles of picture-postcard beaches and a 10,000-slip harbor that is one of the world's premier yacht moorages. The city is home to more than 70,000 permanent residents and the population swells to more than 100,000 in the summer. The temperate climate, with average highs in the 80's in the summer and the 60's in the winter, makes outdoor recreation like golf, tennis and deep sea fishing available year-round.

Beaches are as picturesque as their names - Pirate's Cove, China Cove, Little Corona and The Wedge--abound. They offer something for everyone: from secluded coves and tide pools to monster shore breaks. From the grassy greenbelt on the Avenue, you can sit and watch the boats sail by.

With two piers, several manmade islands--some home to millionaire industrialists and developers---a working ferry, a nautical museum, an arcade-era amusement park, and a fleet or dory fisherman who market each morning's catch in open-air stalls, the area has it all.

But it's not all play. Newport is also a Mecca for technology. When the business day is over, there is no lack of entertainment. Picking a restaurant can be a major chore--there are more than 300 of them in the city and hundreds more surround it. They range from casual beach fare to five-star gourmet dining.

Best Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we found this condo on VRBO! The location is perfect right next to the Balboa Pier and within walking distance from the Newport Pier. The condo is great with a beautiful view and is wonderfully decorated. The beds were all comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. We would definitely stay here again and hopefully will! Thanks Patrick!

Overall my family enjoyed our stay greatly. The location was very convenient

  • 5 of 5

For the most part we had a nice stay and the location was great. Patrick met us as we came in and provided our key to the garage and unit. It would be nice if there were two keys as a suggestion. The unit was great with the view of the beach and pier! Patrick was very quick to respond to small issues we had were a remote was missing and the guest bath tub had a clog. The plumber was literally there in an hour. The furniture needs some updating along with the cabinets. It could also use a new interior paint job. All in all, however, my minor issues that I had didn't ruin the stay. You don't need to bring beach chairs or bogie boards. Patrick has them there for you. All of the towels and linens were in good shape. The lack of AC was at times difficult when it got humid but if you open the windows, you do get the ocean breeze. You're in walking distance to the boat rentals, many restaurants, pharmacy and liquor store. Bike rentals are all over the place too. The one thing you need to do is trek to the pavilions that's about 3 miles down Balboa Ave near the center of town. I went there a few times to keep some food in stock. If you'd ask me if we'd come again, I'd say yes. Thank you Patrick for your hospitality

We stayed here during the first part of March and it was awesome! We loved the amazing ocean views and closeness to some great restaurants and fun family activities. The unit is very nice and located in a quiet complex. We would definitely stay again!

Fantastic Property Great Location

  • 5 of 5

First off the Best thing that we noticed was location location location. Wow the views were spectacular and you were only steps from the beach. Patrick was quick to respond to any questions we had. The property was spacious and very well stocked with anything you might need. There is no central air but there are plenty of fans and all the windows could be opened so air was easily circulated throughout the condo which worked well. The location of the condo is only minutes from top rate restaurants and various activities. We took a few cruises and were only a few blocks away from the dock. We got to witness the start of the sail boat race from Newport to Encenada from our balcony which was a nice surprise on our visit. The secure underground parking was a huge bonus and had easy access to get into and out of the parking garage. Great vacation with great memories made! Looking forward to staying here again.

Overall: Very Good

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this property from 3/28 to 4/1.

The Short Version:

We were very happy. The place is huge, big enough to easily hold multiple families if you wanted to split the cost. Kitchen was great, Wifi was super vast, and big modern TV's in every room. The view is amazing, we felt safe on the property the entire time, and the property owner was helpful throughout the process, including getting us checked in a couple hours early on our first day.

The Long Version:

We stayed for 4 nights. We asked the property owner if we could check in early and he was able to get us in a couple hours before the normally stated time of 4pm. The instructions provided by the owner seemed somewhat complicated on paper, but made perfect sense once we arrived. The entire property was well cleaned and comfortable. The kitchen was wonderful and stocked much better than I expected. The location is great as there are more restaurants and entertainment within walking distance than we could possibly in enjoy in 4 nights. Its only a 1 minute walk to the Catalina Ferry.

If we were doing it again we would probably not even bother with a car rental. Take a cab to this property for 2-3 nights, have groceries delivered, and then take the ferry over to spend a night or two on Catalina.

The Bad:

There wasn't much "bad" to be had. In a few spots the unit does show some signs of age. A rusty shower curtain here, some paint chips there, but nothing that subtracted from our stay. The light switches are confusing and took some time to figure out what controlled what.

Overall, I certainly have no concerns about staying in the property again especially if I have the entire family with me or split it with another couple (or two).
