Quaint Townhouse, One House from the Ocean!
Newport Beach Newport Beach and Balboa Island Area

Great Way to Unwind After Disneyland

  • 5 of 5
My wife, 5 year old son, 2 year old daughter, and I met up with my in-laws in LA earlier this year for our children's first Disneyland vacation. We spent the first night at the Disneyland Resort Hotel and spent an entire day at the park. After an exhausting day and fairly short drive (by LA standards) we found ourselves at Russ's fantastic beach retreat in Newport Beach, and immediately started unpacking and getting the kids to bed. The next four days we spent recovering from Disneyland, with no shortage of great options for kids and adults alike. The beach is a short walk away and in March was very clean and not crowded at all. Restaurants were an easy bike ride away, made easier by the fact that the house came stocked with enough bikes for all four adults to get around, and the guys at the bike shop at Newport Pier had a trailer for the two kids. We biked to the Balboa Island Ferry, both piers, restaurants, shops, arcades... really was a fantastic location to get all along the strip while avoiding all the noise and congestion closer to the piers.

The house fit our family perfectly. Grandma and grandpa got the upstairs master bedroom, while my wife and I took one of the 1st floor bedrooms down the hall from the room we put the kids in (two twins worked well). We barricaded the exterior / garage doors to keep the little ones from wandering away, and the rest went flawlessly. Plenty of space for us, kitchen had all the supplies / utensils you could every need, and the patio was a great place to sit and have a beer during nap time. Fantastic value considering how close you are to the beach and how much room you have.

The finishing touch was when Russ saved the day by sending us our son's lost mickey mouse hat... which is consistent with the great service we got from the time we made the reservation to the time the mickey mouse hat arrived back home!

Thanks Russ -- we will definintely recommend for anyone else heading out to Newport Beach, particularly any families recovering from a Disneyland adventure.

As a frequent VRBO renter I have always had the best of luck and this rental was no exception. It was great! We had a 'situation' when we arrived with the lock box not working, which can happen, and Russ showed caring and understanding and helped make a difficult situation better. It really matters how owners/agents handle the problems that can occur with any rental. Russ gets an A+! The house looks just like the photos and is well equipped. The bedrooms are all good sized and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen appliances are wonderful. My pies baked to perfection in that great oven! The dishwasher is a double drawer making it great for running small or large loads of dishes. The fridge is a side by side and roomy. The washer and dryer were great. The barbeque was brand new! The bikes and the beach toys are especially wonderful to have provided. Our family rented for a week during Thanksgiving. I want to suggest 'off prime season' renting to anyone who can do it. It felt like we had the beach to ourselves and it was so relaxing and fun. The weather wasn't 'sit in the sun and bake' type but my grandchildren loved jumping the waves and building sand castles and collecting shells, etc. The basketball courts and playground are right there and everyone enjoyed them. The restaurants weren't jammed packed as they are in the summer. There are lots of advantages to off season visits! But is especially want to say that it does matter how problems are handled and for this alone I would say this is a fabulous rental - but it is in every way.

Loved our time on the peninsula!! Throughtly enjoyed our rental, location, and amenities. I was born and raised in southern california and was overjoyed with being able to share that heritage with my husband and childern. The rental lacation was perfect. Just steps from the beach and boardwalk, yet minutes to resturants and stores. We loved the crusing bikes!!! What a wonderful way to experience the beach scene and activities. The home is charmingly decorated with beach and nautical themes. Comfortable and inviting. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare nutritious meals as well as a BBQ for grilling out on the quaint patio. We would definitely rent this home again.

Words can't express how much this home was perfect for our family of 5!! Our boys, ages 7, 5 and 18 months had a blast!!! So easy to take everything to the beach, which was pretty much our back yard!!! My parents came to visit us for 3 nights and felt absolutely comfortable in the guest room with their own bathroom and shower right outside their door!! The boogy boards, bikes, beach towels and beach toys provided to us were a huge plus!!! Beautiful short walk to the Fun Zone almost every night via the boardwalk!! Easy enough for the kids to walk too!! Such a beautiful home!! Highly recommend staying here for your family vacation!!!

What a beautiful home for our family vacation! The pictures did not do it justice. The furnishings were great; they were modern, attractive, comfortable and in excellent condition as well as clean. The space was more than adequate for the six of us. We did not feel cramped. The decorations were a big extra. Everywhere were nice wall hangings and live, pretty plants. We were amazed. The kitchen was well equipped with more than we could ask for. Besides the standard dishes, glasses, silverware, and appliances were state of the art furnishings as well. The refrigerator and freezer looked like cabinets. Equally impressive was the distance to the beach. We could walk to the beach within about a minute and without crossing any busy street. And that beach was gorgeous! Beautiful stretches of sand surrounded by rolling waves on one side and an elegant looking boardwalk on the other. Unlike the honky-tonk businesses lining the boardwalks that we're used to, this boardwalk was lined up with attractive beach homes. Daily, we used the boardwalk for walking, jogging and bike riding. It was so nice to be able to use the owner’s beach bikes. Similarly, we enjoyed using his beach chairs, beach umbrella and beach towels. Several times we used the owner’s guide to local restaurants and found his recommendations to be just right for us. This was definitely a vacation home that we'd be delighted to visit again!

Great, relaxing beach vacation!

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Southern California and couldn't be happier with our house rental. The location is terrific--just a hop, skip and a jump to the beach--and a short drive to many attractions. We spent a few days at Disneyland while we were there. The house was well-appointed for both hanging out (wifi, TVs, kitchen items, etc.) and for the beach (bikes, boogie boards, etc.) and had a binder of information to help us get oriented to the location. We would definitely stay here again!
