Reviewer Comments:

On arrival out of office hours our keys were to be in a box - however there was no box only a safe and I had not been given the combination! (I had confirmed final details by phone the week before our arrival and no mention of this) Fortunately a parking attendant was able to assist by phoning a representative. On arrival I was very disappointed. Lounge and dining room furnishings were very different from the internet photos. The lounge was old, shabby and uncomfortable. The dining chairs were mismatched. One bedroom contained only a bed, built in wardrobe and TV. (No drawers, bedside table or bed light). In this same room the vertical blinds were not functioning properly. No beds are made, just sheets provided in plastic wrapping. No contact was made by the agent, even when they knew I could not access the customer service One positive note the property is in close proximity to the beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We apologize there was confusion during check in. Sundays the office is closed and with Sunday check in's we provide thorough After Hour instructions in your signed contract and try to go over that with the guest before they arrive. We are sorry if that may not have been the case. We will forward this review to the owner so they are aware of the condition of the furniture. As for the unmade beds and the plastic wrapped linens, we do this so that the guest can ensure linens are cleaned and sanitized. We sincerely apologize for the late follow up and miscommunication. We would like for all of our guests to check in with ease so they can begin enjoying their vacation immediately. Best Regard, The Staff at Burr White

Reviewer Comments:

We rent a place in Newport Beach every summer so we understand that these houses are not the Ritz Carlton. We stayed at the other half of this unit about 5 years ago. We had a fun week, but we were not impressed with this unit at all. There was sand all over the unit when we arrived (even on the table tops). The couches looked like they were 10 years old and never been cleaned. The screen doors didn't slide properly (or at all). The beds/mattresses were are very cheap quality. We had to flush the toilet 3 times to get stuff to go down. The garage was nice and spacious for one car but not quite big enough for two cars. We didn't have any ants which is a big plus. All the appliances worked even though they were of cheap quality. The TV and cable box were the best we have ever had at Newport Beach. We had a fun week, but it was not because of the accommodations. We just felt that the landlords were more about making money than they were about providing a great place to stay.

Very happy for the Friday option as we would have come in 4th. Saturday was very crazy but, police presence kept thing's fairly under control.

Reviewer Comments:

We've been renting a beach house every year in Newport for 25 years. This was our second stay in this unit and it was disappointing. One step up from camping. The tile wasn't mopped before our arrival. My grand kids walked around in bare feet inside on the main level and their feet were black. Furniture disgusting. Kitchen nice but glass table doesn't stay clean. Never could find accurate remote control so unable to watch it. Ants in main level bedroom. Carpet in bedrooms disgusting and should be removed!

Reviewer Comments:

Our rental was the perfect spot for a much anticipated family vacation and reunion. The location near the beach as well as the whole lay out of the house made the stay very comfortable. A steady breeze throughout the whole house kept us cool all day long and the addition of fans on the premises kept us sleeping comfortably at night. Having bedrooms and full baths on each floor made it the perfect location for our family of nine. The few, minor maintenance issues were quickly resolved during our stay and did not interrupt our daily activities. I would highly recommend this property.

Reviewer Comments:

The side by side configuration of the 2 condos made the trip unsatisfactory. the common patios, decks side by side, in front and back, make it noisey and hard to sleep. Also, the location of the bedrooms in the front, lower level, get a lot of street noise as well as the noise from the condo side by side.
