Great property & location for a large family gathering!
Left on 09/09/2013 for a stay in September 2013 |
Location of the house was fantastic—near the quieter end of the beach.
Size of the house was perfect for our family gathering of 17 (great having a bathroom for each bedroom).
Beds and pillows were very comfortable.
Wi-fi worked great in the living room. However, there was very low bandwidth from the other rooms.
Outdoor shower was great to clean off prior to going into the house.
The main floor and the master bedroom had air conditioning . However, the remaining bedrooms were very hot. Also, the vent in the bedroom closest to the back door did not have very strong airflow.
We checked in on a Sunday when the office was closed. The house didn't have any trash bags, remote for the garage door and the beach towels promised to us. Also, one of the doors was broken. When I called the weekend maintenance, they were quick to respond to this.
The house wasn’t very clean when we checked in:
• Leftover grinds in the coffee machine
• Floors were very dirty
• A dirty towel was left in one of the closets.
• The comforters/bed coverings were dirty and the couches inside and outside the house either need to be cleaned or they should have a washable cover placed over them.
• The screens/windows were also extremely dirty.
• Very poor drainage in the master bathroom sinks.
• Although it looked like the house was on a whole house water filter system, the water didn't taste very good. There was a water filtration system in the kitchen sink. However, the water ran very slowly which led us to believe that the filter needed replacing. When we inquired about this, it was never resolved during our 6 night stay.
• A window in the master bedroom doesn't close—not addressed either during our stay.
• Toilet paper holders were broken
• Broken bottom draw handle for the dishwasher.
Overall, our extended family enjoyed our stay, and the problems indicated above would be ver Read more
Happy to hear the property was for the most part a good fit for your family. The cleaning and maintenance departments have been notified of all your concerns. Hope to see you again soon.

This vacation rental was very spacious and easily able to accommodate our large family including grandchildren. The location of the house right on the beach, near the park and Balboa Pier were convenient for shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. Giving latitude that this is a beach rental, at this price point we were surprised by the marked up walls in the living areas and kitchen, a broken dishwasher drawer, broken handheld shower in the master, and TP holders broken off the walls. These were items we could manage without, but we did feel the house was a somewhat neglected. Otherwise, we found the beds to be very comfortable and appreciated the closet/storage space available to get bags and extra gear tucked out of the way. The back courtyard area and laundry room were extremely useful for wet towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, sandy shoes, and the outdoor shower was a hit with the grandchildren and helped eliminate sandy feet from tracking through the house. The boardwalk patio and covered seating was extremely nice to sit and enjoy the sunsets and children playing in the sand. We would definitely rent this house again! Read more
Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Your review has been forwarded to the cleaning and maintenence departments. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Our first time at this locations. What a great house. So much room. Loved the location by Balboa Pier. The kitchen could use more serving dishes. We had to buy our own ice trays as there was no ice maker. A couple of the bedrooms had no dressers or night stands in them - no place to unpack. Just small things, but overall we liked the house.

Thank you for writing. We will share your thoughts with the home owners. Hope to see you again soon.

A great vacation just the house was very dirty and many broken window blinds and very slow drains. I hope the management company takes my advice and checks into the cleaning company. There was even food left over in closets and under beds from the previous occupants. Read more
Happy to hear you like the location and enjoyed your time here. The cleaning and maintenance departments have been notified. Thank you for bringing these items to our attention. Please let us know when you are ready to return.

Great Place for a Small Family Reunion
Left on 07/16/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | Chuck K.
The rental had pleanty of room. Good size dinning area and an ample supply of pots, pans and dishes (and good appliances). A great location with lots of activities within walking distance (the pier,fishing charters, fun zone, resturants etc.) The property was in good condition and was clean and comfortable (even for larger groups). The courtyard and gas grill were great and the front patio with the shade canopy and gas fire pit were a favorite (spent a lot of time there). Overall our family group of ten consisting of kids and grandkids and grandparents had a great time at the property. The check in/out process was quick,informative and the staff were great! We have used Burr White in the past and will do so again. Having confidence in the rental agency eliminates a lot of concerns especially when conducting businees long distance. Spent a lot of money on this trip. The property and the agency met our expectations. Read more
Thank you so much for your review Chuck! We are thrilled to hear that you and your family had a great stay at this home. The location of this home is excellent, especially for a large family because it's walking distance to local restaurants, Balboa Pier and the Balboa Fun Zone! We are happy to hear the property was comfortable, clean and durable for you and your family. Thank you for your good feedback on our company, we always strive to instill confidence in all of our guests. We will look forward to having you and your family stay with us again! Have a great rest of the summer! -the staff at Burr White

A fantastic family memory.
Left on 06/04/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | Kelly E.
This house is a perfect rental for large families. It is close to entertainment but little is needed because the sand and water provide everything the kids want. The home is clean and well maintained and every bedroom has its own bath. The outdoor courtyard is an added bonus for outdoor meals. The grand kids cried when we loaded them in the car to go home. This will be one of our favorite memories. Read more
Hi, Thank you for your feedback. We did a walkthrough of the property this afternoon and will be adding some additional items to the kitchen based on your review. We will be buying an ironing board for the property as well, so thank you for your feedback. The washer and dryer is located off the courtyard, and we even provide laundry detergent so we apologize that this was not communicated to you at check-in. In the future, we are always available to answer any and all questions you may have about the amenities or any other questions you may have about the property.

The rental was great, just disappointed in the supplies
Left on 05/05/2013 for a stay in April 2013 | Katie & Nick G.
Our family had a great time at the rental. The location was amazing and the house suited our large reunion group! We were just a little disappointed in having to call a few different times to ask for things like trash bags and propane. The unit should have had backup supplies and since the BBQ and Firepit were advertised, they should have checked to make sure there was any propane. Both tanks were empty upon deciding to bbq dinner and enjoy the firepit. We had no trashbags, papertowels or dishsoap beyond what what actually in a can or on the towel roll. Not good for a house that supports 17 guests. Beyond those things, the house itself was fabulous, and we enjoyed every bit of the location!!!! Read more
Hi, Thank you for your feedback and review. Firstly, we're so glad that you enjoyed your time at the beach. The location of this rental is fabulous for a family that is looking forward to enjoying the beach and activities surrounding the pier. We apologize that the property was not properly stocked when you arrived. We addressed your phone call regarding the propane and household supplies as soon as they were received, we hope that your requests were sufficiently fulfilled in a timely manner. Please come back to visit Newport Beach soon!

We celebrated my daughter's 15th birthday by parasailing and having dinner 3 blocks away from the house. Then volleyball in front of the house and general high quality hanging out in a terrific rental. Read more
Burr White wishes your daughter a very happy birthday! It sounds like you all had a blast celebrating her birthday, WOW! We're happy to hear that your family took advantage of some of Newport's best activities, such as parasailing. We hope you will come back to stay with us again soon.

Loved this Beach House
Left on 03/10/2013 for a stay in February 2013 |
This great beach house is in a lovely location just two blocks from Balboa pier. Our family enjoyed the front patio with the canopy. The bathrooms were really modern and the beds were awesome. It is spacious with space for different activities and conversations. Read more
Hi Doris, We're so happy to see that you enjoyed your vacation at 1002 E. Oceanfront. It is a fabulous property great for a large family to enjoy the outdoors, on the front patio with the canopy as well as the interior courtyard. We hope you will be back to stay with Burr White again soon!

Left on 01/23/2013 for a stay in January 2013 | Joan L.
Location is definitely exceptional. The previous reviewers complaints about insufficient plates and flatware were apparently fixed, there were plenty for the number of max guests. The patio and fire pit were nice additions. There is a volleyball net nearly in front of the house so bring a ball if you're inclined. Parking sufficient for 5 cars at the house, and public (pay) parking is nearby for overflow. Views are great! Bike path goes all the way to Huntington - or further? We had a great experience and talked about doing it again. Also great prompt communication from Burr White people. Of course the perfect weather was a bonus and put us all in a good mood.... Only downside that comes to mind is the dining table is small for the # of people (we brought a folding table since this was mentioned by a previous reviewer) and there were no extra trash bags or paper towels in the house. But overall it was thumbs-up. Read more
Hi Joan, We appreciate your constructive review and are happy to hear that another one of our guest reviews helped you prepare for your trip. We will make sure that the owners consider adding more seating in the dining room for 2013. We will update this review in the future when that does happen so our future guests can prepare accordingly. You were here for great January weather so we're happy to hear that you enjoyed the outdoors, and maybe even got a volleyball game going! We hope you will come back again soon, Burr White would love to host you.

Master bedroom awesome, rest just ok
Left on 12/12/2012 for a stay in November 2012 | Lisa K.
We had 14 members of our family for Thanksgiving, and had to "borrow" extra plates and silverware from Whole Foods for our dinner. Lovely property, but could use some re-supplying of the necessities. Not enough plates, silverware, glasses, etc. for the 16 it is supposed to sleep. Master bedroom was wonderful, but other bedrooms looked a little tired and could use new linens. Location was terrific and would recommend for that alone. Nice firepit on the front patio, good parking. Overall good experience. Rental agents great. Read more
Hi Lisa, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review about your stay. We appreciate your feedback and have passed your comments regarding the kitchen necessities and the linens on to our team for them to address. 1002 E. Ocean Front is a great property for a large family. We're so happy that enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday there together as a family. We hope that you'll make your visit to Newport Beach a yearly tradition, either during Thanksgiving or during the summer. Thanks again!

We had a great experience and really enjoyed the location and amenities. Certain parts of the home were not up to standard (dirty pots, broken blinds), but the staff was very helpful in noting my concerns. Also, the listing indicated a greater number of beds/sleeper sofas than were actually present--I would not recommend the property for more than 10. Otherwise, very happy with our stay and will certainly stay with Burr White again. Read more
Hi Michael, We very much appreciate your feedback, and your review was very constructive. We will make a note of your comments and be sure to address them to better serve future guests. We hope to see you again soon!

Some Important Points Regarding 1002 E Oceanfront
Left on 07/31/2012 for a stay in July 2012 | Mike M.
We loved this property and had a great holiday but felt that you should note the following points as it was an expensive rental rate and the issues left a sour taste, I think a less laid back group could have made a fuss about the following issues:
There is only one of each item of cutlery for 6 people and the property is suitable for at least 10/12 guests. We were six but it mean't washing cutlery by hand every time you wanted a spare item or were having more than one course. We had guests for dinner one night and fed the kids first and then washed everything for the second sitting.
Clean tea towels and napkins were not in the house on arrival but we found them wet in the washing machine and dried them ourselves.
The BBQ gas was empty on arrival. The BBQ had not been cleaned.
The sprinkler is leaking and wets the external day bed. This was reported but not attended to.
There was no bottle opener (we purchased one).
There were no coat hangers (we purchased them).
The property was pretty clean but external areas hadn't been swept, the BBQ was dirty, and there were lots of dead flies on the carper near the windows. The counter panes were also in need of drycleaning in the main bedroom. The windows also need cleaning.
Some light bulbs need replacing.
I don't think these issues reflect very well on Burr White and I think a more sensitive group of guest could have written a far more stern note!

The house was awesome!! A bathroom for every bedroom. Great location. Loved the manner in which they provided the linens. We rent at least 2 to 3 large houses a year - first time we have seen the bedding and towels professionally done. Will definitely choose this house again for our beach stays. Read more
Hi Ivy, Thank you for your review. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed this home and we are even happier to hear you plan on coming back to the Peninsula to stay with Burr White again.

Best Vacation House
Left on 05/18/2012 for a stay in May 2012 | Clark S.
Our vacation experience was amazing from start to finish. We booked our reservation with Bree. She went above and beyond her job to make sure that we were taken care of. Once we arrived in Newport, the house met and exceeded any expectations that we had! It was amazing. The pictures do not do it justice! We will be back renting this house from Burr White again!
