Why Al & Mary Ricci chose Newport Beach and Balboa Island Area

This property is perfect for relaxing. Once you park your car there is no need to get back in it. There are no streets to cross. The views are amazing. Enjoy walking the Newport Pier after dining at one of the many restaurants / food courts in the area.

Cant wait to do it again !!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as shown in the pictures not to mention the perfect location for people watching. We had one issue with a broken bbq and the property owner had it replaced with a brand new one by the next morning. This was our first time renting a house at Newport beach and I must say Mary (Owner) was available for any question we had, already planning our next trip.

Awesome week in an awesome location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with out 2 teenage boys over spring break. We absolutely loved the location and the property. Everything was as advertised, we couldn't have been happier with our stay. Mary was awesome to work with and available for anything we needed. If you like people watching this is the place for you. We didn't even get in our rental car for 3 days! I would highly recommend this rental to family and friends. Great trip.

Best location on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, the only thing that would have made it better is more time! It was the perfect location for our family, right next to shops, bars and restaurants. My teenage boys never got bored and we all enjoyed renting bikes from the Boardwalk Shop 2 doors down from the house. We enjoyed being right in front of the pier, being able to walk down the pier early in the morning and seeing what was going on at Dory's. I have family that lives only 10 minutes away from the house and they are now wanting to rent the house for stay-cation.

The house itself was very clean and comfortable. Because we were there in March the nights got cool, the fire place was perfect for the evenings. It was nice to be able to walk off the porch onto the boardwalk. The master bed was comfy, my boys did say that the bunks were squeaky but comfy, the kitchen was fully equipped with anything you need. I was surprised to find that there was coffee, laundry detergent and other items. It was so nice to have a washer and dryer, nothing like going home with clean laundry. the grill on the porch was a great idea, we grilled steak one night out there and visited with all the people on the board walk heading to the bars (did I mention the people watching is like no other?). The parking spot was great. We enjoyed flying into Long Beach Airport and taking the PCH to the house, it was only a 25 minute drive and relaxing.

I think this will be an annual family vacation spot, I looked at other homes along the pier and none of them compare for the price! The owner (Mary) was very helpful and great to work with. I was surprised to see that within 3 days of getting home that our deposit was in our mailbox. Thank you for sharing your beach house with us, we look forward to visiting again next year!
