The unit was beautifully decorated, immaculate and had a fantastic chefs kitchen. This will be our first choice on our next trip.

Loved the Lucent Pearl. Exceeded all expectations. Great location and the unit was very clean. Loved biking (provided by owners).

great property, close to all attractions, restaurants and the beach. Very clean. Fireplace was not working and had to ask for an iron and ironing board. Staff very helpful and responsive. A/c seemed like it was regulated, could lower temp but then it went back up on it's own.

This home is just beautiful inside, such luxury! The home was very clean, comfortable and had every amenity we could want. Having two parking spots in the garage was a huge plus because parking can be a major challenge in that area. The location is ideal, just steps away from the Balboa Fun Zone, restaurants, and the beach is a few minutes walk from the front door. Everyone we worked with at White Sail Realty was lovely to work with and communication was easy. The only complaint that we had was that the weekend we stayed it was incredibly hot and humid and so we were happy to have AC however it is controlled by the realty company and would switch off throughout the day and night so the temperature was inconsistent, we would wake up in the middle of the night hot and stuffy...we would turn it back on and by the time the house would cool down again it would turn off. We called management about this and they said they would look into it and we never heard anything further. Not a big deal but worth mentioning. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a luxury getaway by the beach!
That was until we had dealings with the property managers. We were given 1 towel per person and 1 hand towel. when we asked for a couple more and a couple more rolls of toilet paper, we were told NO! We were reminded that we have a washing machine though. We were very surprised. We were also turned down for extra paper towels. 2 rolls for 6 adults for 4 days. They acted like we were unreasonable. They did however break down and give us 1 roll of paper towels and 2 rolls of toilet paper. As i said, not very welcoming. And again, we have rented ALOT of beach houses. We've never even had to ask for anything let alone be told NO. In fact, all of the other houses were fully stocked with everything you can think of. We ALWAYS leave something behind, like a game, a bottle opener, beach toy with a little message on it in each house. Just as a token and something fun for other guests. We didn't here.
We did have a GREAT TIME at the beach. Always do. But, as beautiful as this house is, we wouldn't stay again with this management group.

The house is stunning. Location great. We have rented as a group of 6 all over the coast. Laguna, Newport, Huntington, for years. We try different locations each time. This time, we actually said that we would be back to this house as soon as we saw it.

Beautiful property, centrally located. White Sail was exceptional to deal with.

We recently stayed here for a long golfing weekend. The unit is super clean very updated and very conviently located. It also has parking for 2 cars which is really important in this area. The staff at White sail was both friendly and professional.

Fantastic location in this clean rental. White Sail Reality was very responsive with the few minor issues, BUT the is no consistent internet connectivity and the rental company did not fix this. It was a major problem as two of my adult children needed to connect to work. Do not stay here if you need internet connectivity for work. Otherwise, no complaints.
The house itself is one of the best rentals I have stayed in. Everything was exceptional and perfect. The rooms are all bright with natural lights and good decor. Living area and kitchen are both great if you are planning to have guests over as well.
I would stay here again.

My family stayed at the Lucent Pearl for four nights in March. White Sail Realty was a top notch realty firm to deal with. They made checking in and out extremely easy.

We enjoyed this 3 bedroom and 3 bath rental. The construction updates are recent and well done. The furniture is comfortable and the location is great for access to beach and harbor. This is a touristy area with not a lot of really good restaurants nearby but several that are okay. Mint Leaf across the street is exceptional Thai. The kitchen is well equipped with Thermador appliances and everything works well. The beds are comfortable. The apartment is light-filled, and the master bedroom is very bright at night, especially the master bath. And there is no door between the master bedroom and bath, never a good idea. That was the only negative we experienced. We could not figure out how to work the tv remotes to watch regular tv but we did watch Netflix. We would stay here again--convenient and comfortable.

10 out of 10 location, 10 out of 10 interior layout and desig ! Among the luxurious amenities there is an incredible chefs kitchen that easily allowed us to cook an amazing Thanksgiving meal! Perfect home for families with a great layout, spacious family room/kitchen and garage parking. Excellent view out the family room windows of the flags and ferries wheel of Balboa Fun Zone yet the beach is around the corner. 10 stars for this property and White Sail who made everything so easy!
