This is our second stay at this location. Once again we had a wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

Since our last stay. Mary, and her husband have made improvements. I can't think of issue that we had with anything. The location could not be better.

The best recommendation I have is that everyone looks forward to our next vacation here.

Thank you Mary for a wonderful vacation.

Perfect location!

Unit is located in a great location. Close to everything in Newport Beach. It's our second stay, and just as great as our last visit.

Location, literally on the beach AND parking!

  • 5 of 5

A great rental. Just what I'd hoped for and the parking turned out to be very important on the holiday weekend. The second bedroom

Was just right for my 18 year old son and 12 year old their age the bunk with the full size below and single above was just perfect. Bedrooms are nice and quiet!

Wonderful views and location!

  • 5 of 5

We have used home-away and other rental sites to book homes and condos in the past, but Mary may be one of the best owners we've ever interacted with. She was prompt to get back to us and communicated with us during our stay.

The location of this condo was great. It is right by lifeguard chair 20, little restaurants and shops, and offers amazing sunset views and people watching from the 2nd floor deck. The unit was clean and ready for us upon arrival!

The king bed and bunk beds were very comfortable and we were glad there was air conditioning in this unit because we had a few very hot July nights during our stay.

Mary has everything you need in the condo to enjoy your stay from kitchen gadgets to hangers in the closet, to beach towels, awesome Tommy Bahama beach chairs & umbrellas and boogie boards for the kids!

I only have a couple of ideas for improvements: The futon couch in the family room was not super comfortable to sit on, but we just unfolded it and made it up as a bed and we layed on it to watch tv instead. Problem solved! Also, you may want to bring your own hair dryer if you use one to style your hair because the one there doesn't work the best. Truly those were the only two things I would change or improve.

On a side note, if you're interested in whale and dolphin watching, check out East Meets West Excursions with Captain Nick in Newport Beach! Next to this awesome condo location, our excursion with Captain Nick was our other favorite part of the trip! We saw a super pod of over 1,000 dolphins swimming along our private chartered boat with Captin Nick! Epic!

We will definitely come back to Newport Beach and stay in this unit again and go on an excursion with Captin Nick! It was a wonderful trip, great weather and beaches, and the condo was just what our family of five was looking for! Don't let this one slip by you!
