1616 West Oceanfront Unit B 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.

Let's have a quick chat, and see if this is the right place for you.

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

- This is the second floor unit 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 condo with stunning ocean views and immediate access to the beach. This upper unit has vaulted ceilings and a much better views than the lower unit, but you don't get the front patio, and the balcony is small. That said, it's also a little quieter and more private upstairs.

As far as living arrangements, this condo is a three bedroom, two bath, with a queen-sized Murphy bed in the living room. The master suite has a king-size bed, and the two additional bedrooms have two twin beds each. Roomy and nicely laid out, it sleeps eight pretty comfortably. If you have more in your party, you could also rent the downstairs 3 bedroom unit, or the rear 1 bedroom unit.

"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?"

- Not bad. There is two car tandem parking on the carport. It's not the tallest or widest carport ever. You'll probably want to keep your smaller vehicles in the carport, and use those 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 beloved that it books a year in advance for half of summer.

"Is this the right vacation rental for me?"

- If you're looking for a reliably enjoyable oceanfront condo with gorgeous views and the ability to sleep up to 8, it's hard to go wrong with this one. Being on the second floor not only means you get a better view, but you also enjoy a little more privacy and a little more quiet. You also get two parking spaces instead of one, which you will greatly appreciate once you experience the peninsula traffic.

This is an all around good vacation rental and one of our most popular. If you're on the fence, don't worry about having a good time. Worry about missing out on the dates you want because someone else already booked. ;-)

    a guest recommends this vacation rental

    Upon walking into the rental, everyone’s initial impression was the same— a jaw dropping view. It doesn’t get any better than looking out straight into the ocean and watching the waves crash along the shore. Being on the second level was great for privacy as well since the boardwalk is busy. If you look closely you might get lucky enough to spot some dolphins. The house was clean and they had a gift basket waiting. We realized right away that there was no hot water which was a surprise. You would think that would all have been checked but once we notified the contact person, someone was over fixing it within the hour. It was a water heater replacement that was needed so we went one day without showers which was no biggie and they generously gifted us a gift card to a great local restaurant in town to make up for the inconvenience. Was super unexpected but very much appreciated. We had the best time here and the location truly cannot be beat. Walking distance to pier, shops, restaurants, balboa, bike rentals, etc. I would definitely stay here again and I actually hope to.

    • Manager Responded on 1/5/2018

      Thank you for the review! We're glad you had a great vacation, and we greatly appreciate your understanding on the water heater. We try to make sure everything is perfect before move in, but if anything goes wrong during a guest stay, we do love the opportunity to show off our great customer service. ;-)

    Michelle W recommends this vacation rental

    The home was beautiful, clean and very well stocked. The property management company was very helpful and gave great communication. Don’t bother over packing because this house has everything from blow dryers, a lot of beach towels, beach chairs, pots and pans, silverware, and even Tupperware and pot holders. Even included was a coffee maker, toaster, lots of dish towels and a washer and dryer with detergent and dryer sheets. Tons of extra pillows, sheets and blankets too! We will definitely be renting this place again though White Sail Realty.

    Hands down best location in Newport. Walking distance to pier for shopping and restaurants but far enough away so there isn't too much traffic. The space itself was spacious, clean and had all we needed for our stay at the beach. The staff at White Sail was friendly, accessible and accommodating. We look forward to staying here again and enjoying the view, beach and perfect space.

    • Manager Responded on 11/17/2017

      Awesome! Thank you for staying with us. We'd love to have you back at the Dolphin View property for your next vacation.

    Ann L from Santa Barbara, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Overall, excellent experience and would stay again due to the fabulous location, prompt response of the owners, kitchen with tools and utensils. Issues we had were small but added up: the prickly water flow from an old shower head in the en suite bathroom, sand in the dresser drawers, dripping tub faucet (water is at a premium here in SoCal), rickety thus unusable dresser drawers, and a used condom found between one of the twin beds and the wall.

    • Manager Responded on 11/17/2017

      Thank you! We try to stay on top of issues as they occur. The shower head has been replaced, as has some of the bedroom furniture, and we now have a new housekeeping crew on the property to address deficiencies.

      It's a big place to clean, and expectations are high. We try to ensure every aspect is fully reset for each new guest, but if something is overlooked, we welcome anyone who isn't satisfied to let us know. We'll ensure any deficiencies are addressed promptly.

    IT was a nice rental in a nice location. The bathrooms were dated which made them look a little dirty. THe furniture was dark and so it felt unbeachy. The rental company was amazing, Anything that you needed they were there to provide. The kitchen was well stocked so making meals at home was convienient

    • Manager Responded on 11/17/2017

      Thank you for the comments! We have been replacing the furniture over time, so it's getting less dark and more beachy.

    Great location on Balboa Peninsula, close the pier and walking distance to great restaurants. The place was a little dated and could use a little sprucing up, but was clean. Biggest suggestion I have would be for beach towel and beach chairs to be provided at the villa. Was surprised that a beach rental being used by vacationers coming from out of town that towels and chairs were not provided.

    • Manager Responded on 11/17/2017

      Great point! We've now started including beach towels and beach chairs as a standard feature of the property.

    a guest from Tulsa, OK recommends this vacation rental

    The home was nice but modest in decor. No air conditioning so be sure weather is nice. It was as advertized but having young children, we did not stay the full time due to the loud neighbors below as well as the very busy area. This is a touristy area so not for a chill, beach type relaxing vacation. This is suited more to a group wanting a pretty view of the ocean and not concerned with having a lot of people right outside your back door on the beach walk.

    • Manager Responded on 11/17/2017

      That is a great observation about the decor, and we have been updating it since your stay. While there is no AC, the ocean breeze is a full time feature that keeps things cool. As far as noise, please let us know if our other guests are being a little loud, and we'll give them a ring. Also, the city is very quick and efficient at solving noise complaints. It is a public beach, so even in the best of times, a bit of the boardwalk experience comes with the territory.

    Location can't be beat. Amazing view of the beach and ocean. The beach sidewalk was right outside our door and it was an easy walk to Newport and Balboa Pier - walking distance to grocery store, bars, restaurants,etc.

    The place is nice and well equipped but could just use a bit of updating to make it a five star review. Particularly the balcony area and showers.

    • Manager Responded on 11/17/2017

      We fully agree, and in the fall of 2017 we began changing out the furniture and decor to try to upgrade it. We appreciate the feedback and hope to get you that fifth star on your next trip. ;-)

    Our family of five stayed here over the President's Day holiday, and were content with the condition of the apartment. The kitchen was clean and well stocked with utensils, etc. The bath towels appeared brand new and the sleeping arrangements were just right (my husband said the master bed was the most comfortable of all the homes we've stayed in thus far!) The management company welcomed us with a thoughtful basket of goodies, and checked in with us throughout our stay to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. There were some minor disappointments but overall it was a very pleasant stay.
