About Jason Colaco

We are locals, live close by, and own 7-vacation rental units in the beach area. We love to meet the interesting people that stay in our homes, and are constantly updating our home to make it as comfortable as possible.

Why Jason Colaco chose Newport Beach and Balboa Island Area

Newport Beach is a dream location, and I have dreamed of buying here for almost 15 years. We were finally in a position to do it, and jumped at the opportunity to buy this home. Its so close to the beach and bay, a short walk to great restaurants and shops. You really never have to get in a car once you arrive.

What makes this condo unique

30 seconds to the beach 30 seconds to the sand 5 minute walk to the Balboa fun zone Amusement Park 5 minute walk to great restaurants and shops 20 minutes to Disneyland 60 minutes to Hollywood 60 minutes to San Deigo

Location was great

  • 3 of 5

I have mixed feelings about our stay here. We really liked the location, it was close to the beach which we loved, the size of the property was fine for the 6 of us, we used both couches that fold into beds that are in the main living area, and the price was good, its tough to find something in Newport for $400/night or less. It's nice to have a washer and dryer on site. It was great to have the bedding and towels as part of the rental fee. There were nice televisions in both bedrooms and the main living area.

Here were my concerns:

-One of the couches in the front room has leather that is pealing all over it, I was constantly sweeping it up and it would stick to anyone that sat on it, it would have been really nice to have sheets to put on the couches for sleeping on.

-there are minimal dishes in the kitchen, not enough to have 6 people eat at one time

-the blinds through out had missing slats

-there were minimal supplies on hand, I ended up having to purchase laundry detergent (there was only one load of laundry worth when I goth there), and trash bags

-we never had access to the parking spot, someone was always in the covered car port, so parking was a pretty big hassle for us.

-the counter top had missing tile

-one of the bar stools were broken

-the lamps had missing light bulbs.

Overall I think that the property has good potential but it could use a little TLC to make it a more comfortable spot.

We booked this property for a spring break vaca for my daughters and I and this location was awesome! The property manager was easy to work with and was quick to answer any questions and accommodate us. We arrived to a clean unit, it is small, but perfect for a small family who wants to vacation near the beach and the fun zone. I would definitely recommend this property and will for sure rebook in the future!

Still hot in October without fans working full capacity

  • 2 of 5

The lights and fans did not work properly and the old dirty blinds were off and behind the furniture. The place needs a good cleaning. At first glance, the place looked ok and charming. The people upstairs must have had a little one who loved to run a lot.

Great Summer Deal

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect location for those that are looking for a reasonable place close to all the action. The location is just about halfway between the Balboa and Newport piers which can be reached in a couple of minutes on bikes, or about a 10 min walk. Plenty of restaurants and nightlife spots at both piers. The beach is about 150 yards away so you don't have to worry if you forget something if you go out to the water because you can easily go back and get it. The condo came with one parking spot but the side street is free parking too. You may not be able to get a spot on the free street when you first arrive but by evening or the next morning something should open up. Both bedrooms and the living room and nice TV's and the house was equipped with WiFi for those that don't want to completely escape their lives. There were also several other amenities that we didn't need to take advantage of because we brought our own, towels, chairs, games etc. Even though you could sleep 6 at this location because both of the front couches fold down I wouldn't recommend it because there is just one bathroom. I highly recommend this location for groups of 4 or less and will definitely seek it out next time we are heading that way.

Great vacationing spot!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here for our senior trip and it was perfect! The house is a two-minute walk from the beach, which was very convenient. Shops start popping up within a 10 minute walk, so we were able to just park the car and really never use it until the end of our stay. The house had loads of towels (beach and bath) and a washer/dryer which made our stay so much more pleasant. There were also beach chairs and an umbrella that were super handy because we didn't think to ring those things. The kitchen was really pretty nice with a full-sized fridge, freezer, and cabinets with plenty of glasses, plates, and silverware. We didn't have any problems with noise even though we knew there were people staying upstairs. Overall, it was a great stay and I would absolutely come back and stay again!

As with most condo's at the beach in Southern California, this property does not have air conditioning. Because day time temperatures are normally in the low 70s and night time temperatures in the high 50s in normally unnecessary. The sea breeze also tends to act as a natural coolant.
