Our home is one of the original Newport Beach cottages built in the early 1930's. Many original features remain while expanded comfort is found in the second floor bedrooms and bath. Our cottage is in a prime location with easy walking to the beach, shops, restaurants and grocery store.

The space

You will enjoy a comfortable, clean cottage with the best front patio in the area! We hope you will find yourself spending time outside on the patio reading a book, sharing a meal and enjoying the refreshing sea breezes. Our neighborhood is friendly and values family. We are NOT a party block. We ask for renters who are respectful to our home and our neighbors.

Our vintage house is 1200 square feet with a large master bedroom, small back balcony and bath as well as a sizable additional bedroom all on the second floor. The main floor has a well stocked kitchen with dishwasher, a bathroom and comfortable living space with a TV and DVD player. We have many windows and French doors, some original to the home, all functional allowing great breezes through the house. Rooms also have ceiling fans.

We have a barbecue with a fabulous patio and comfortable seating outside. A washer and dryer are provided in our garage where you will have easy parking. Newport is a very popular summer destination and parking is difficult. Our garage allows you the convenience of a parking space whenever you need it! We do not claim to have a home that is newly updated but rather charming, comfortable and clean. We know you will love it!

Interaction with guests

I will plan to meet you upon your arrival, give you the keys, garage door opener and show you around. During your stay I will be available for questions by phone or text.

We had a great time at the beach house. It's nice to be close to shopping, restaurants, and of course the beach. Sue was quick to respond in all our communications. Super comfortable bed in the master. Friendly neighbors as well.

The cottage was everything as described and more. So charmingly decorated, really warm and cozy. The location is close to everything plus they have a garage so no parking struggles. We plan to come back again with our daughters

We have rented houses and apartments all over the world and this was one of our very best. Sue and her husband are amazingly kind and generous people who have an absolutely beautiful house in a fantastic location to share. They met us at the cottage and stayed to make sure that they had shown us everything and that we had all of our questions answered. When we contacted them before/during and after our stay, they responded quickly and kindly. This cottage is a lovely little house that is beautifully decorated and so so comfortable. It is two blocks from the beach, two blocks from grocery store, restaurants, etc. Couldn't be more convenient. We loved the covered front patio - it was so lovely sitting there in the morning with our coffee watching the people go by. And another really good thing - it's so great to have a garage to park in as parking is at a premium in the neighborhood. Obviously it's a wonderful house, but what makes it special are the owners.

Sue was really welcoming! She met us at the house and showed us around and was so sweet. She said to call her about any questions that we might have but their welcome book had everything in it. The house was exactly how it was represented online and more. Very charming and so much character. The neighbourhood is quiet which is what we wanted, so it was perfect! I would definitely recommend this place for your family.

The host provided prompt communication upon arrival. Concluding communication was insulting, abrupt and curt. Owner has unrealistic expectations of amenities and utilization for occupants. Most families take vacations to visit family or people within the region, like us and upon departure owner was angry about inviting guests for dinner.
Sue User Profile
Response from Sue:
Nikki and her guests violated our occupancy limit as well as our house rules. An attempt to discuss this with her was responded to with denial of any wrongdoing. Her "guests for dinner" resulted in neighbor complaints and a damage claim being rewarded to us by Airbnb. We will not host Nikki again.

I am a native Californian, a retired caterer who loves to travel, spend time with my husband, our 7 grown children and 7 grandchildren. I am an extrovert who loves people! It is because of my love for travel and experiences that I am now ready to share our much loved family beach cottage with others. I know you will love it!
