Great location. Nice deck but also didn't have to share with other guests. Very nice having garage. Overall a great place with a very short walk to grocery store in one direction and pier in the other.

Our family of 6 had a terrific time. The surf in this location is just right for families. It's close to the pier and restaurant areas. The deck is fun for sitting and relaxing. This is house is all about location. It's clean and serviceable, but far from luxurious. That was just fine with us. The location made this wonderful.

I came with my sister to celebrate our birthdays. The location was perfect. We had full ocean view on the boardwalk. We were within walking distance to the grocery store, entertainment and fine dining. The home was clean and revealed a casual & comfortable setting. I brought my little dachshund who had full reign of the front deck and sand lot. She had a fabulous time going for walks and sunning herself on the open deck. I did have an issue with my Wifi code, but management sent someone out immediately to address the situation. The code was staring me in the face and of no fault to management. We were loving our trip so much, we extended our stay by several days. We will definitely be back to stay at Surf Cottage.

Location was great. Parking was difficult as garage is too small for a real car. We used the garage for bikes and competed for car space on the street. The unit itself is gross. Beach house with crunchy carpet throughout...enough said

Good location, but rental needs updating

From initial transaction thru departure, White Sail was truly customer oriented. Exceeded expectations. Responsive and reasonable on all issues. Will use again and recommend anyone else to do likewise.

Plenty of space for my family. My husband, 2 toddlers and my in laws all stayed comfortable here. The cabinets provided everything we needed for our 3 night stay. The shower was separate from the toilet which was nice. The shower needed a little more water pressure. Although everything else was great. Location was awesome! Literally a short sidewalk from the sand and beach!

Although I would say that the rental could use some updating I assume that by keeping it as is the unit is relatively affordable for an oceanfront property. The location is perfect. My favorite part of our stay was hanging out on the deck to watch the sun set. Then hanging out even more to watch the moon and the stars and listening to the ocean sing its songs. A lovely stay was had by all.

Perfect location. Ocean sights, sounds. Walk to restaurants.

This beach house is in the perfect location on the strand. Although the house is dated, it is super clean. We loved it experiencing the beach life! Highly recommend. Good bang for the buck!

Fantastic location. Nice property - some items a little dated but overall very comfortable and fine for a short stay. Property manager was great with prompt and efficient communication.

We had a great time, the location was awesome, the patio was huge and we were lucky enough to find parking on the same street. Only one thing I would change and that is the full beds are a little small and are probably ready to be changed out. It is the perfect place to people watch and is an easy walk to the pier.
The property was described accurately and came with everything needed so all we had to do was unpack our stuff and start having fun. The property manager couldn't have been more helpful and communicated with us to make our stay effortless. Thanks!!

Our family spent a great week at one of the best locations on Newport Beach. The deck overlooking the beach is the perfect spot to sit and watch the world go by.

This house is grossly misrepresented by the pictures and polite reviews available. It is old with paint chipping from cabinets, paper curtains held by clothespins that are conveniently missing from the pictures, a change operated washer and dryer in a shared garage, and disgusting, rusty box fans meant to provide comfort because there are no ceiling fans in the bedrooms and no AC. The experience is more like going to summer camp rather than a beachfront vacation home. The beds and pillows are cheap. The location and view are the only positive attributes that are correctly represented by this listing. I am giving this listing one star because I think it’s overall score of 4.5 is so incorrect. It appears that some furniture has been replaced but that is putting a bandaid on an otherwise run down property.
The weather was fantastic and although we had rain it was only at night. We had everything we needed in the beach cottage for a perfect 4 days. We only needed 2 of the bedrooms and would have liked a 2nd bathroom, but we adjusted easily. Once we arrived the check in and check out was very easy by text and phone.

My best friend and I needed to get away for a girls beach trip. No fuss, just a great beach, good location for restaurants/store and a place to sleep. We can honestly say the photos are exactly what you get. Right on the sand between tower 28 and 32. Loved the convenience of grocery shopping nearby and several restaurants just a short walk away.

Great location! Overall well maintained. We had some issues w TV and service dept. got right back to us w help. One gross BarcaLounger type chair that desparetely needs a replacement. Was NOT happy that guests are supposed to take out the garbage, do the dishes and strip the beds before check-out. We pay an additional $100 cleaning fee, on top of the (not cheap) rental fee, so VERY annoyed they expect Guests to do the housekeeping! Just a bad way to end a nice stay.

We love our time at newport every year in the surf cottage lower floor. This was our 9th summer at this house and we could not be happier. The view is amazing, the porch is perfect and the house is in possibly one of the best spots on the boardwalk. Walking distance to the NB peer and close enough to HB and balboa to even walk or ride your bike. The only problem is that I miss is a lot until I get back the next year.

Overall the experience was OK. The surrounding area is great with lots of things to do. The White Sail rental company is very responsive. The accommodations leave room for improvement.

We had a wonderful weekend at the cottage! The beach is beautiful! We saw dolphins and were even able to see anemones at low tide. The property is old and needs renovation but it was clean and comfortable. The fenced in patio was a plus. It had plenty of towels and the location was excellent. The rooms are small and the walls are thin, you can hear EVERYTHING! Even so, we had a great time and I would stay here again!
- Kasey P. from Las Vegas, Posted: 07/23/2018
This was such a cute little cottage. It was perfect for our family.
Con-needs better pillows. House holds 6 but not enough indoor seating. The couch is worse than my 1st apt. furniture. For the amount of money to stay I think new furniture is in order. Only 2 beach chairs, house hold 6 people. Paying to do laundry!? For the price I believe that's ridiculous.

Pro- perfect spot. On the water. Walk to everything. Comfortable beds. Speedy response when needed. Plenty of kitchen needs
- Bryan S. from Fontana, Posted: 08/08/2018
Overall a good experience. A bit pricey. Would be nice if you offered a tiered rate. Like a weekly discounted rate or something. Next year we are planning another stay but want to stay longer. Not sure if we can at the current price
