Perfect Week in Newport Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 enjoyed a fantastic week on Balboa Beach in Newport. This home served as the perfect central location for us to visit Disneyland, Universal Studios as well as some locations we wanted to visit in Irvine and Dana Point. It was great to walk right out into the sand with beach volleyball right in front of the house and the water right there as well. So many shops and fun places to visit within walking distance down the bike/walking path that runs right in front of the house. The home easily held all of us with enough bathrooms to allow us to get up and get on with our day. The house has a garage and a carport. We brought two cars, one being a full size pickup. Got to be a pro at backing it into the carport from the narrow alleyway by the end of our week. Really had a great week in a very nice home.

Great Location, Beautiful views but very noisy...

  • 3 of 5

We arrived home yesterday after a 3 night stay at this beach house. There were 11 of us and everyone was able to get a bed and the house itself worked out great. The location and views were awesome. The reason for the 3 star review is that there is an upper story of this beach house that is rented as well. I did not realize that when I booked. The noise level in the house is deafening. With that said, it was not the fault of the guests, they were just enjoying their vacation. When you are in the 2 rooms with the queen bed and the 4 twins, when the upstairs guests flush the toilet, use the sink or take a shower it sounds like water is going to go through the ceiling..I'm not kidding I ended up with ear plugs, and

Advil pm and still was awakened. I did call the 24 hour phone number at midnight the first night and the gentleman was very nice. He told me he had never received a call stating the noice level of the unit?? I can't believe we are the first to notice this. Truly, we are not a family hard to please! There was a small issue with ants and when calling the rental company they sent someone out immediately to spray. Villa rentals was very nice and we did love the beach house but the noise level was a problem as we came home really tired......

I loved where this property was! It was within walking distance to both piers, the ferry to Balboa Island, Balboa Fun Zone and many restaurants and bars. The beach is right out the door! We would definitely be back!

Great multi family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this family vacation was wonderful. From the beginning, dealing with Joy, to the end this vacation was great. We had 13 people in our group and we never felt that we were 'on top' of each other. The house was fantastic. Everything was within walking distance - though we rented bikes and would strongly suggest that - and the beach was great. I'm almost afraid to praise this anymore because I want it to be available for us next year. Can't go wrong with this rental.

An excellent vacation rental at a great location

  • 5 of 5

A quick walk to Balboa Pier, The Fun Zone, and a variety of restaurants and a great place on the boardwalk. The unit was clean, well-maintained and the perfect layout for our family. It was our first time to rent through Villa Rentals, Inc. and we were very satisfied. There were some technical difficulties with the television, which they promptly handled. We look forward to staying again next summer.
