Sheila was great and very helpful, we had everything we needed except a turkey roaster for Thanksgiving. We bought a disposable one. She directed us to Baby's Away to take care of some baby needs and they were great.

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.

We stayed in Dolphin View Upper in for a couple of weeks in January 2018. The location on the boardwalk couldnt be better with easy access to both piers but away for the commotion. The unit has very good views, easy parking and was clean and well maintained. The management company provided thorough instructions and were very responsive to any inquiries. We will stay there again and I would recommend it to anyone.

Im from out of state and wanted a getaway with my adult kids who live in California. This was the perfect place to do it! The amenities were great, such a beautiful home , and we appreciated the well stocked kitchen. The view and the fact that we were on the beach was unbelievable! We enjoyed playing volleyball and beach games for hours! The BBQ grill though was way too small for the size of the place and could be replaced, but overall the place was amazing.
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.

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.
Please note: one of the shower curtains had mold.
The smoke detector in hall pinged, batter replaced and then inoperable.

last minute plans to rent a beachfront home turns out to be a most memorable stay! Perfect spot for SoCal family members to drop in and share in our fun filled leisure. Have rented several VRBO homes and we have like what they offer. This place is a good one! Minor bathroom updates would be a plus.

The location and duplex were great, only suggestion I would make is to have some beach towels in the unit, we were local and brought our own, but other visitors might not. Sheila was great, helpful and worked with us on check in and check out times.

Great location on the Balboa Peninsula. Close enough to retail to walk to restuarants, far enough from retail to not hear the noise...great view and clean beach....extremely well maintained house...we had a great time!

It was very good. I thought the extra charge for cleaning was a bit much given what we paid

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.

When we checked in the door was wide open also we had to coach and neither one worked. We were given another code by Bailey and was told it would be straightened out the next day never heard from anybody also no lights working in either bedroom and neither TV worked in the bedrooms

We enjoyed our stay at the Dolphin View upper unit! The location was superb! Beautiful ocean view and miles of walking/bicycling path going either direction. Lots of good restaurants and activities close by and beautiful weather made it a wonderful trip!

We were very impressed with the entire experience but I have to say VRBO is the only way to vacation!!! My wife told me while we were on our deck watching the waves that this was the best vacation ever! And we have traveled all over the place in the last 14 years.... The kids had a blast and we could watch them on the beach playing while we were inside! Thank you again VRBO for an awesome vacation!!

Upon walking into the rental, everyones initial impression was the same a jaw dropping view. It doesnt 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.

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.

Great unit with great views. We stay the month of February only problem was this year the weather was better in Chicago.
- Kristen H. from Scottsdale, Posted: 09/13/2017
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.

Happy with our stay, everything was very clean and peaceful. Enjoyed every minute

The home was beautiful, clean and very well stocked. The property management company was very helpful and gave great communication. Dont 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.

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.

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
