We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on this property. It was clean and in a good location, close to shops, restaurants, a large grassy area where we played frisbee and paddleball, as well as steps from the beach. Questions were answered immediately by the rental company. The only problem was parking but there is a parking lot nearby (daily fee).

I rented this unit to surprise my wife for her 40th birthday. Ive been a hotelliere for over 20 years, so I know what to look for when it comes to service and maintenance of a facility. The White Sail team was amazing to work with. The booking was very easy, simple, and quick. They responded quickly to any questions I had about the unit. The unit itself was clean and well maintained. The location was perfect. The welcome snack basket and bike/paddleboard vouchers were a plus! Thank you White Sail team, my wife's birthday was a success!
Some friends and I were looking for a little "stay-cation" as we are local to Orange County, but wanted to get away for a weekend. Lucky for us, Art had a last minute cancellation and we could book this unit. The place is very conveniently located. It is right in front a park with the beach just beyond (30 seconds from door to sand)-- this is great if you've got kids, dogs, or just want an easy walk to the beach and solitude (like we did!). There are lots of restaurants and cafes right near the apartment which made breakfast, lunch, or dinner easy when we didn't want to cook. If you do decide to do a bit of your own cooking, the kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, cups, utensils, a few pots and pans, plus a nice Ninja blender, a toaster, and a coffee maker. There's a grill on the deck, too! We were also pleasantly surprised to find a few board games in the linen closet. That was a nice added touch and we spent quite a lot of time playing time!
As the listing says, there is only one parking space for the unit (pretty common in this area), BUT if you've got people stopping by there are a couple of beach lots and street parking available. Even at the busiest part of Saturday (which was St Paddy's, btw!), I think the most we spent was 5-10 minutes finding a parking spot. Besides, once you're on the peninsula, I doubt you'll want to leave!
Overall, it was a very relaxing, pleasant stay and we have Art & White Sail Realty to thank for that. I think it's a good value for the price and I'd recommend you think about staying here for your next Newport vacation!

Whitesail Realty was amazing during our week long stay. The unit was clean, easy to find and the views are amazing! We hope to come back soon!

Nice group of people that own and rent these places. Place is clean, on the boardwalk and a good place for a first time Visitor to learn about the peninsula. Best Beach around.

Property was as described... the lack of AC was a little bit of an issue but the numerous fans helped greatly. Perhaps for a property of this value a 300$ window unit would go a great way in improving the comfort level of the stay. Regardless would recommend this place for location alone. Location is really hard to beat.

We had a great stay. Unit was clean, well stocked and well maintained. Furniture was okay but basic. The view was simply beautiful. Booking was simple and straightforward. The management was easy to work with and responded promptly by phone and email. Love their mobile app as well. Very useful for information about the property, check in, check out, etc. Parking was a little tight for SUV but was okay. Would definitely recommend for a trip to Newport Beach.

Unit is nice. There is room for improvement and or upgrades but overall not bad for being on the sand. Management company is ok but you can tell you are dealing with rental company and not the owners.

This unit is literally steps from the beach! There's a lovely park right in front of the apartment which is great for kids, dogs, or just hanging out. Just beyond that is the beach (not even a 1 minute walk from the unit) that has charcoal fire pits and beautiful views. The apartment itself has great amenities -- dishes, cookware, Ninja blender, coffee maker, toaster, travel sized blow dyer -- and the beds are comfy! If you open the windows and patio door, you can get an amazing sea breeze through the place which helps keep things cool. Everything was very clean and tidy when we arrived and Art was always available if any issues came up (none did though!). This unit is also really close to many restaurants and convenience stores which means you don't have to drive once you get here! There are also a few beach parking lots with cheap parking rates next to the unit for anyone who comes to visit! I'd stay here again!

this 2 bedroom condo is right on the beach, close to the pier, shops and parks. the interior is clean, updated and spacious. white sail realty makes sure you have everything you need for your stay.

The location is perfect - so was the unit - we will be back - no need to rent a car close to everything
That was the best thing about the unit.
The rest of the condo was just average at best. Nothing fancy - just plain the pictures are accurate. Considering the cost to rent the unit, I had higher expectations for the furnishings within the condo though. A futon for a couch in the living area, a creaky master bed, and a bare minimum for kitchen (not even a spatula unless you were grilling). And, if you can't go without air conditioning, you will not be happy with this unit (even though it seemed like it is not uncommon for units to not have A/C).
Also, not a big deal, but we didnt care for the requirement of having to strip the bedding and clean and put away all dishes before we vacated the unit.
We would stay here again, but would probably look around for a place that had more to offer internally.

The location of the Groundswell - E unit worked out great. Because of the location, we were able to go straight out to the beach and walk to restaurants in about 5 minutes. You can walk to Newport Beach Pier in about 25-30 minutes. So, the convenience factor was high. The White Sail staff were good to work with as well.

Fabulous weekend with all the sisters, Mom & most neices. Late check out was most appreciated. A few glitches; the portable fan in the LR is filthy, caked with dust & when we turned it in it flew everywhere (my Mom has COPD & on oxygen & we had to get out of the room ASAP,(, the Lav sink in the back needs to be snaked- the back fill was not pleasant nor the disgusting ring it left & last I slipped IN the shower in back- you should consider anti slip grip stickers.

Had a very nice stay in this rental. Spacious and clean. Only complaint is beds in second bedroom very hard and uncomfortable for an adult, but would be fine for kids. Well supplied with everything you need. Spacious and airy with high ceilings in living room/kitchen area. We had a great time here.
