We stayed here for a girlfriend getaway. It was such a great beach house! So close to the beach! Clean and plenty of room for a large group, kitchen has tons of dishes and room, and I loved having a washer and dryer in my unit to use! The patio area is great for relaxing, just the parking is hard, very tight quarters to get your car in and out if you have a larger vehicle (we had a van). Thanks for a great stay

We haven't had all of our children and grandchildren together for several years, so I was really looking forward to this vacation. The house was perfect. We had 8 adults and 6 children. The house was clean and the kitchen was well equipped. We made most of our meals there. The beach is one block away and is beautiful. There were plenty of beach towels, some sand toys, and we loved having a washer and dryer (we left four boogie boards). Parking an extra large vehicle was a little tricky, but we managed. We love how calm Balboa Beach is. Great for taking walks with the grandchildren, much less congested than Laguna Beach. A wonderful vacation. We'll go again.

Great house, great location!

This was our second time renting this property this year. The house is spacious, well stocked with bicycles, boogie boards, beach towels and located just a minute walk to the beach. We'd highly recommend this place.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

My family and my sisters family had a nice stay in this unit, with 9 of us total, including a pair of teenagers. The house had just about everything we needed, with additional items such as towels, TP, condiments, laundry detergent, etc., which aren't usually provided at other VRBO's we have used. The location is truly about 150 +/- steps to a very nice section of beach. A 7-11, liquor store and a couple small food venues were <5 min walk away. The owners were great to work with and very responsive to a couple concerns that developed during our stay. Two items are worth mentioning to anybody considering this property 1) Parking in this part of Newport Beach is crazy, and downright horrible on weekends. The house came with 1/2 of a 2-car garage for each unit, but no driveway. We had two vehicles, plus additional visitors during our week. We arrived with several bicycles and paddle boards which required creativity to store. It was a huge shock to realize the challenges of parking (reminded me of NYC, without the abundance of lots). All week long we had to carefully coordinate when to move a vehicle. We deferred several activities because it wasn't worth the headache of searching for a parking spot upon our return. If your stay involves multiple vehicles or lots of day trips or errands, you may want to carefully consider the parking situation. During the week it is much better, but be prepared to park several blocks away. The area is extremely bicycle and pedestrian-friendly, so a car is definitely not needed for many activities 2) We stayed at this property during an unusually warm period in Newport Beach. This house, like most others there, doesn't have A/C. Some in our group weren't bothered by this. Others had trouble sleeping at night or staying comfortable indoors, particularly before we figured out a plan to optimize airflow through the rooms. We cooked several meals on the grill, rather than kitchen stove, in order to minimize the inside temp. We also bought a couple more fans, in addition to what was provided by the owners. If your goal is to spend an abundance of time at the beach without much else, this would be a great spot. Our group did a bunch of day trips, and I think we would have been better off finding a less congested area a little further from the beach. Overall, we had a great trip and I would certainly look at this place again if we were vacationing at Newport Beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. I think your review was spot-on. Yes, it's the beach, so parking is a challenge during Summer weekends. For that reason, perhaps the Balboa area isn't ideal for a party that wants lots of day trips. It's great for a beach-oriented vacation or for folks that don't have a lot of cars...or for the occasional trip to Disneyland or South Coast Plaza/Fashion Island shopping. On weekends, most locals don't move their cars once they are parked, relying on bikes, walking or Uber (a great idea down here). Thanks again. We're happy you had such a good time.
