We parked our minivan in the garage, climbed out the back hatch because it was so tight and didn't use the car again for the entire stay. The grocery store is a couple blocks away. Amazing Mexican food at Avilas was blocks away. The Newport Pier was a short bike ride down the boardwalk, and we regularly rode down the board walk to balboa pier and balboa island. And the house is ON THE BEACH. Yes its old, like you are staying at your grandma's house without a dishwasher, but it was very clean... and the property management lady we worked with was amazingly attentive. Available on text, and always responded immediately. Only downside is you can hear the other floor in the house pretty well. First two nights, there were college guys down there that talked all night. Not too loud to complain, but you could hear them. The end of our trip, another family was down there and it was quiet at night. Lastly, the bed comfort is tolerable and could use an upgrade, But did I mention... this house IS ON THE BEACH!!! Super calm area. It felt like the beach was our private beach. Plus fun grilling or sitting on the couches while people cruise up and down the boardwalk.

Me & my children had such a memorable time staying at the upper surf cottage! We had amazing views of the ocean, the sound of the ocean was so comforting when we slept at night & the smell of that fresh ocean breeze that filled the cottage was everything & all that we wanted & needed! We appreciate everything & hope to stay again!

We had a fabulous time in this Surf Cottage. The view was breathtaking! We live out of state and coming home was just what we needed. The staff was very attentive and super friendly. We will be coming back!!!

very nice location, clean and fun place. Only drawback was the parking - the garage was nearly impossible to use it was so tight in spacing.

We love coming to this rental property. We always get great service from Sheila and her team. The unit is in the perfect spot and our kids love to attend the surf camp each year.

This unit it walking distance to the pier and for anything else you may need at the beach. The view is beautiful. Management is attentive.

As a family we rented both the top and bottom units so it was perfect! The upstairs only has one actual bedroom. The other bed is in an alcove that is part of the living room so there is no privacy. Right on the beach and within walking distance of shops. One of the best features was the fenced in sand area. Perfect spot for children to play in the sand! Be careful when opening the gate though because you are right on the busy Boardwalk with heavy bike traffic. Could use more shade on the deck and parking is definitely a problem since only small vehicles will fit in the garage. Having access to laundry, grills, and outdoor hoses was a huge plus! Nice towels and linens were provided plus a wonderful welcome bucket of goodies!

Great vacation place. Close to everything and with the best view. The house could use a little update but overall provides everything you need for a stress free vacation. We had a little problem in our stay at nigh time and someone was sent in no time to fix it. We will be coming back

I took my teenage son and we had So much fun we booked an extra night. We stayed in the top floor and it was perfect. Its clean and comfy with an amazing view. Its a cute place, very clean with lots of white towels, extra pillows, and beach chairs to carry down to the sand. The staff is super-friendly and very responsive. They handled my request to stay an extra night very easily. I will definitely stay again. Probably with my other teen and husband.

My family of four stayed for 6 nights at the end of March. We had a great time hanging out at the beach. First impressions of our the surfers cottage was good. The apartment was clean and had all the amenities we needed for our stay. The view is amazing watching the sunset each night. The kids during the day could go in and out using the bathroom, getting snacks and just rest out of the sun during the day. Also being close to the grocery store and restaurants was very convenient. I would say it sleeps 4 comfortably. The pull out sofa is hardly a sofa. I wouldnt ask anyone to sleep on it. Overall I was happy with the surfers cottage and would stay there again.

This place was the best location! Can’t beat the boardwalk. The views were amazing! Everything we needed was provided. The shower was really small. There wasn’t a lot of outlets for charging electronics. Overall this place was great and we had a wonderful time!
I want to say first that Amelie and the whole staff were incredibly accommodating and professional- I hope the company knows how valuable they are. That being said, the property itself is in dire need of updating, especially for the price. There is a point where location can no longer justify the price- and granted it is a great location, right on the beach- but the property really needs help. There is a noticeable lean to the entire floor, there were multiple soft spots that we were concerned with putting a foot through, and the furniture needs to be replaced- the beds really didn't make for a comfortable night. There is no noise privacy from the unit below so be prepared!
There were some cleaning and maintenance issues when we arrived- the shower head was broken and a few things weren't cleaned well and Amelie promptly took care of it and was again, incredibly helpful there. We really appreciated the efforts of her and the rest of the staff to make us comfortable but we do not feel it was worth the price for the quality of the place. Maybe if you're looking to take a surf trip with some friends and you're looking to get out of a tent for the night it'll be fine but as a couple looking for some comfort and relaxation, we agree that continuing the search is a better idea.

We chose this rental after having to be evacuated due to wildfires so maybe for the right person and the right agenda this place would be perfect. Unfortunately for us it was less than perfect.

We had a great time. Very basic property in need of a bit of updating but checked off all of our boxes for three people (Dad, Mom, 14 year old). Our only complaint is the beds could really use mattress upgrades. Kitchen and grill adequate for cooking, view great, literally right on beach. Short walk to restaurants and bars.
