Overview

About the property

If you like to stroll, hike, run, bike or swim in the ocean, this newly remodeled condo is close to the beach, parks, running and bike trails. Just about 1-1/2 miles to the beach, you’ll be steps away from Fairview Park and Talbert Nature Preserve in Costa Mesa. You’ll be 5 miles from Huntington Beach Pier; 7 miles from Balboa Island; 14 miles from the art colony of Laguna Beach, and only 13 miles from Disneyland. So, what are you waiting for?!!

The “Mermaid Lounge” has kitchen, living/dining area, two bedrooms (plus loft), a full bath (Jack and Jill) and a half bath downstairs. With tile throughout, it’s okay if you bring in a little beach sand. Upstairs there’s new carpeting in the loft next to the walk-in closet and a ¾ bath. According to VRBO, the average hotel room is 325 sq. ft. Here you can bring your groceries and spread out in about 1,300 sq. ft. Just right for a maximum of 6 guests. Master bedroom has a king size bed, loft has a queen size, and the “surf room” has a daybed and twin bed. Add crib size child bed or Pak n Play for little ones at no charge. The kitchen provides what you need for preparing meals with mostly new appliances; use spices, cooking oil, coffee, tee, or anything you can find there. The washer and dryer are just around the corner in the hallway where you'll find all the laundry supplies you will need.

Clean, uncluttered and comfortable, you can unwind here or scurry off to your choice of Southern California attractions. You may even want to sign up for sailing lessons at the Orange Coast College School of Sailing and Seamanship whether you are just starting or have sailed before. You don’t have to leave Newport Bay to enjoy a fabulous day on the water. Rent a Duffy boat, order food and beverages or bring your own!

Head through Fairview Park and down the hill to pick up the Santa Ana River Bicycle Trail. Turn left and you’re at the beach in about 2.5 miles. Or, turn right and bike the rest of the 30 mile trail to Riverside County.

Surf lessons? We can refer you to our favorite instructors. Model airplane enthusiast? There is a flying field (electric only) in Fairview Park. Oh, and if you play the piano …bring your music because we have one here!

FOR INQUIRIES: Choose "Contact Owner" (below the pricing area), fill out the form with your questions/information of your choice, then scroll to the bottom and choose "Send Email". No payment is required for this option. My prices shown will be honored for subsequent reservation.

FOR 24-HOUR BOOKING REQUEST: VRBO has added a 24 hour booking request to my web page, and I'll do my best to respond quickly.. After five years of renting my home to travelers, with no complaints from my neighbors or HOA, I continue to ask that all guests sign a Rental Agreement and speak with me personally, briefly, before finalizing the booking. I am given 24 hours to "accept" and finalize the booking, or 'decline". First payment is required with this option.

About Kathleen Winnie

Grandma, girlfriend, sailor, traveler, retired Sales Manager, I am rarely home so why not share a nice place to stay for travelers. At various times my guy, family and I have used VRBO to enjoy the country from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, to Bend, Oregon. We enjoy the weather here the most; it is nearly perfect year round. And, there are so many things to do!

Kathleen Winnie purchased this condo in 2007

Why Kathleen Winnie chose Costa Mesa

Close to the beach, sailing, and many attractions, one of my favorite things about my property is that it is nestled among the trees in a quiet, safe complex with very nice neighbors.

What makes this condo unique

Guests have use of my California State Beach Parking Pass. This may be used as many times per day as you wish each day at the nearest beach, Huntington State Beach. If you pay per visit without a pass, the fee is $12.00 - $15.00. It may also be used at many California State Beaches. There is a charge if pass is lost or stolen.

The home is very quaint and cozy. The home is clean and comfortable. The back patio is very relaxing, private and quiet. The owner is very kind and responsive. Great place to lay our heads after long days at Disney!

Perfect place for our family

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Mermaid Lounge, which is ideally located in a quiet area near a nature preserve close to my son in Costa Mesa and a short drive to the beach. Kathleen, the owner, was available for questions before, throughout and after our stay, and her neighbor came to check on us as well. We had a great barbecue on the back patio. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed! There were lots of sleeping options for myself, my 2 adult daughters, my son in law and my 3 grandchildren aged 1,2 and 10. We used both the toddler bed and the baby crib. The front closet has beach supplies, including a beach umbrella. We will definitely stay again when we do another family visit!

Clean and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Kathleen was so responsive and the woman who cleans the house does a meticulous job. The space is open and quiet and close to surrounding attractions. Would not hesitate to recommend the rental or return myself.
