Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to share my experience as the prior reviews that I read were the reason we selected this property. They were all true! I was traveling with my 10 and 14 yr old children and the location right on the beach and near all the food was ideal. Being on the second floor was great for views and a little privacy, thoroughly enjoyed our stay as this unit was near everything. The unit is perfectly updated and stocked, it has everything you could need for your visit. The owners were very polite and helpful. Highly recomend the property and we'll be back.

Sorry it took so long for me to send this review but I wanted to make sure I did get one in. This was the most amazing week we have had!! The memories are priceless!! The rental home is perfect. We spoke to the unit next to this one and this unit doesn't even compare to others. Everything is provided - beach chairs, boogie boards, beach towels, BBQ, washer and dryer, A/C, the list goes on. It's just perfect! The price is amazing as well. I would recommend this beach house! Perfect location. We will definitely return!! We asked our kids if they wanted to go on a cruise or go back to the beach house. They said the beach house for sure!! That says something. Thanks again!!

Perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! This condo couldn't have been in a more perfect location. It was literally steps to the Newport Pier, the sandy beach, the wonderful shops and places to eat, as well as a nice fresh fish market where seagulls and pelican's gathered to snatch some fish scraps. There are bikes to rent near by and a nice long sidewalk where you can walk, run, ride, or roller blade (whatever fits your fancy) that funs the length of the peninsula. The sunsets over Catalina Island were spectacular, and we could even see the fireworks up the coastline from the pier which signaled the coming of the New Year. Dolphins could be seen from the deck and there was a great seal that seemed to love to swim under the pier so he could snag some of the bait that people were using to fish, as well as throw to him on purpose. I hope to spend other vacations there!!

Another great stay!

  • 4 of 5

We love this rental. This was our second stay here. Great location right on the beach and next to shops, bike rentals, restaurants. No need to drive anywhere! Would have given five stars but the toilet wasn't working when we arrived, which was very inconvenient. We called the owner and they came out and fixed it right away. No other problems. Great place!!

We are coming back next year!

  • 4 of 5

What a great vacation spot! We stayed in this wonderful rental with our toddler for over a week and it was just about perfect. Great location, clean and well-kept, full of everything you need from beach gear to more than your average kitchen accessories. One small issue was the AC didn't work in the room where our daughter stayed and there didn't seem to be a way of adjusting the temp in the other rooms, but at least having AC was a huge bonus. We will definitely be staying here again next year! And we got our deposit check back the day after we got home!

Owner's Response: Hi Cristina, So glad you had a wonderful time and we look forward to your return trip (you were just perfect guests)! The A/C units are new and the controllers can be a bit confusing (I'm still learning how to work them) Hope to see you next time, Mary
