The house was THE PERFECT distance from the beach, food and shops. Only steps away from the sand and without the traffic of the boardwalk. A block away from donuts, coffee, bike rentals, and souvenirs. Everything we needed was a hop skip and a jump away. The house itself was well appointed with everything we needed to make meals and enjoy the beach. The hosts thought of everything. Newport Beach is BEAUTIFUL! Great little boardwalk and shops. Our experience with Beachside was Awesome. Great app and communication throughout the rental process. Loved the amenities. Would have liked more specific directions on the tv remotes, but that is minor. We also could figure out how to adjust the temperature (AC) if needed. We were fine, but others might find that information useful. Thanks for the great experience. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!!!!
