1616 West Oceanfront Unit A Newport Beach, CA 92663 United States

You're planning the trip to Newport Beach and you want a great vacation rental, right on the beach and boardwalk. Everyone is relying on you to pick the right one.

You're doing great so far! This is one of the most popular units on the oceanfront. Let's chat, and see if it's right for you.

"Can you give me an overview of this vacation rental?"

- This is the ground floor of an oceanfront triplex, right on the boardwalk and between both piers. I would recommend this unit to people who wanted a good, clean, modern, mid-range option with a nice patio and immediate access to the beach.

This unit is a three bedroom, two bath, with a Murphy bed in the living room. The master suite has a king-size bed, and the two additional bedrooms each feature two twin beds. Sleeps eight pretty comfortably. If you have more in your party, you could also rent the upstairs 3 bedroom unit, or the rear 1 bedroom unit. The upper and lower units are almost exactly the same, except the upper unit has vaulted ceilings and a much better ocean view, but the downstairs has no stairs to climb and has the highly popular boardwalk patio.

"Is the home well outfitted?"

- Yes. In addition to WiFi, cable, a fully equipped kitchen, linens, beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas, automated keypad door locks, a guest orientation data tablet, and a washer and dryer in the hallway, it also has a basic starter supply of soaps, detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, enough to get you going for your stay.

"Will it be clean?"

- Yes! Housekeeping will have it cleaned, stocked, beds made, and ready for move-in.

"How is the parking?"

- Adequate. There is one car parking on the carport. It's not the tallest or widest carport ever. You'll probably want to keep a smaller vehicle in the carport, and use that one to get around town with, and leave any larger ones on the street.

"How about the price?"

- This is a roomy, desirable mid-range oceanfront, one that does a lot of little things right to create a really enjoyable final product, and the pricing reflects that. This unit is so popular it books a year in advance for half of summer, and is one of the more popular oceanfronts in town.

"Is this the right vacation rental for me?"

- If you want more luxury, we have that. If you want a better price, we have that. If you're looking for the sweet spot in between, this is it.

*Are* you looking for the sweet spot between luxury and economy? You are? Why haven't you booked yet? I already warned you that this place literally books a year in advance. Someone else may be reserving your dates right now while you sit there reading this sentence.

    a guest from Chandler, az does not recommend this vacation rental.

    White Sail goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is good. But the overall condition of the house is poor. It is as simple as paint tearing off the wall to having multiple lights out in the bathroom. For the price you pay I would have expected more giving the condition of the house. There is also no AC and they provide fans, but again the fans need a good lint cleaning to work properly. Location is great!

    • Manager Responded on 11/17/2017

      We appreciate the comment about the condition of the property, and we agree. By the end of the summer, it had gotten a little worn. This fall we got with the owner to buy some new furniture and decor to improve the experience. It's such a great location, it was probably time for equally great furniture. We hope to have some new pictures up soon!

    a guest from Castaic, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Rented the lower level Labor Day Weekend. Great location, very comfortable rental. Enjoyed hanging out at the place, although we did venture out a couple of evenings to find Newport was a bit too busy so we were happy to return to our place. BBQing/cooking was no chore at all because of the beautiful scenery. Lots of stuff to do within walking distance which is great because parking can be an issue if you have more than one vehicle(not the property's fault)...that goes for every beach town during the summer months. The property managers were awesome...very helpful. We hope to rent again here soon.

    • Manager Responded on 11/17/2017

      Sounds like you guys had a blast! The nice thing about this Newport Beach rental is that you are close to the activity if you want it, but you can also just kick back and enjoy the home if it gets to be a bit much. Hope to have you back again soon!

    • Manager Responded on 11/17/2017

      Mid-peninsula, right between the Newport and Balboa piers, it's hard to beat this location. Close enough to dining and shopping to get there easily, but far enough away to avoid Newport at its most crowded.

    Michelle F from 92677, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We were having an event at the American Legion at 15th street and this was the perfect location. There were 5 women sharing the home and surprisingly, we found that the home was stocked with everything we needed. We never cooked at the property but there was everything we would have needed if we had. The staff was great at communicating quickly by text, and even accommodated an early check in. There was ample room should we have had more guests, but the only thing that we felt was lacking was the number of towels provided. There was a washer/dryer, but it is difficult while on vacation to be washing towels every day. Otherwise, I would totally recommend Dolphin View to anyone.

    • Manager Responded on 11/17/2017

      Wonderful! Sounds like you had a great time! We try to keep everything well stocked, and are glad you noticed! :-D Also, we have started including beach towels with every stay, so hopefully that should keep the volume of laundry down!

    This house is in a great location, with plenty of non-crowded beach access. It is comfortable, and has a great patio and beautiful beach view. They have been continuously updating the inside. Appliances in great shape.

    • Manager Responded on 11/17/2017

      Thank you! That patio is very popular, and we just replaced the old chairs and BBQ with actual lounge furniture and a nicer grill. As the beach goes, this is a pretty chill part of it, so you can enjoy the sand, water and boardwalk flow without the 'West Newport' party vibe.

    Kathy M from Huntington Beach, CA recommends this vacation rental

    The location is great. This is not fancy, but very comfortable & clean for a family vacation at the beach. walking distance to shops/food/entertainment. We have stayed here 3 times and love sitting and watching the ocean and the people walking by at this BEACH RENTAL. The layout of the unit is perfect for 6 adults and a couple of kids on the Murphy Bed. As far as the kitchen goes, everything you many need is there. If you can, rent the upstairs unit also, same layout and even better view of the ocean, just doesn't have the patio space for a group to sit outside like this downstairs unit. Celebrated our 60th anniversary there with family & friends and had a great time! You won't be disappointed.

    We loved staying at Dolphin View. The condo is well appointed and perfect for our three young children. They could play in the sand right outside the door.

      This is a very popular spot for exactly that reason - easy and convenient for kids to play in the sand and parents to keep an eye on them from the patio.

    a guest from Tucson, AZ does not recommend this vacation rental.

    We rented the three bedroom lower story of this house in February. It is extremely convenient to both the Balboa pier and Newport pier but the condition of the house is poor, especially as it relates to the price charged. Its not that there as anything broken - it was just old and battered. The carpeting is pretty old and dingy looking. I didn't appreciate being left instructions that I had to strip all the beds and clean and put away all dishes before I left- what is the $225 cleaning fee for! Overall it was just overpriced.

    • Manager Responded on 11/17/2017

      We appreciate your feedback on the condition, and we've made some upgrades that we think future guests will like. Also, it's no longer asked that guests strip the beds. Upon reflection, that was kind of an old-school vacation rental thing, and not what our current guests expect, so we've made that change as well to make the experience more hotel-like. Still, we're glad you liked the location and had a good time.

    Hi, The rental was in the perfect location for us. Great view from patio! We enjoyed our five days and nights there.
    Generally the place was clean and had everything we needed.
    Exceptions: The shower curtains had mold on the bottom and there were no bathtub floor mats. The metal edge on the step down from the hallway to the living room was loose. The patio screen door bottom track was broken. These things were just minor issues for us. Overall we loved the place.

    • Manager Responded on 11/17/2017

      We're glad you loved the place, it's a great place to love! We have replaced the shower curtains, fixed the metal rail, and we now include floor mats. (Not sure how that got overlooked, but it's standard now.)

    This was an excellent rental, right on the beach. It was nice and big and had plenty of room for my family to stay. It is in a perfect location between the newport and balboa piers. The most relaxing part of my trip was walking down to the Stuffed Surfer and grabbing a coffee, then relaxing on my patio. We rented cruiser bikes and never had to worry about driving our car. I would stay here again

    • Manager Responded on 11/17/2017

      Dolphin View is a big rental unit in a great location, and many people like that it's nice and close to fun dining options like the Stuffed Surfer and McFadden Square. But it's also always fun to just relax on the patio at the end of the day and enjoy the view.

    A nice 3 bedroom( with family room, Murphy queen pull-out) get-away on the boardwalk. Good location from Balboa and Newport piers. Great family environment. Very clean! Convenient washer and dryer in house with supplies. Nice appliances and stocked kitchen cabinets. Reality company always accessible, and pleasant to work with. Linen service provided, but optional. Portable fans in all the bedrooms. The larger master bedroom has plenty of room for additional blow-up mattress. The 2 smaller bedrooms have twin beds only. One room we pulled the 2 beds together, with a king mattress pad, and made it a king, instead for 2 adults. Been going there for 15 years, and they are continually upgrading the place.

    • Manager Responded on 11/17/2017

      It's always nice when people notice the little things! We do try to keep the property well stocked, and do continual upgrades to keep it fresh, so even our returning guests of many years notice the difference.

      We do include the dolphin views at Dolphin View at no extra charge, although we never really know their travel schedule. Also, we've started adding dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent and other soap products to all rentals. Dolphins can be hard to predict, but everybody needs soap. ;-)

    Having previously stayed in several places in this general area near the Pier, I can honestly say this place is the best! The location, condition, amenities, and management are superb. It is near enough to the Pier to take an easy stroll there yet not directly on top of the congestion and noise around it. The interior is clean and beautifully appointed with everything you might need. White Sail Agency is amazing - very responsive and thorough. And there is covered parking for one car. We would definitely return to this property!
