Large Six Bedroom Oceanfront Condominium Between the Piers! (68263)
Description from the manager
You’ll feel as though you‘ve been transported to a South Seas paradise once you step inside this luxury two-story condo on the boardwalk between the piers. This stretch of beach is one of the best spots for beach activities, people watching, bike riding, and soaking up the sounds and breezes from the ocean waves. Located between the Balboa and Newport piers, this large six bedroom and four and one half bathroom abode has been furnished with tropical décor, channeling a luxury tiki hut, with a large living room and bar area on the ground floor perfect for entertaining family and friends. There is also a table near the sliding glass doors with seating for 6 which can be used for enjoying a drink from the bar or playing a board game with the family. The lower living area opens onto a patio situated on the boardwalk just 2 blocks from the Newport Pier.
On the beach level there are three inviting bedrooms and two bathrooms, one suite with a queen bed and adjoining bath, another with a queen bed and a third with a double bed. The rooms are decorated with attention to detail, beautiful custom artwork, and most importantly, they feel like home.
As you ascend the stairs to the second level you’ll notice a giant swordfish hanging on the wall, which was caught in the early 1900’s. The second level houses the main living area and master suite. The front of the property abounds with stunning views of the Newport pier and surrounding area. The Balboa pier is just on the horizon as you look south, and the Newport pier is in plain sight to your right. Don’t forget to check for dolphins playing in the water in the distance, they are a common sight! Enjoy views of the ocean or read a book on the patio facing south. The patio facing North has a gas grill and small dining table ideal for entertaining. You will be able to create a fantastic gourmet meal for the family in the beautifully outfitted kitchen, featuring stainless steel appliances, an 8-burner stove top and dishwasher. The formal dining area accommodates 6 guests. There is an additional exterior entry near the kitchen.
There are three large bedrooms and two and one half bathrooms on the second level. The master suite will make you feel like the king of the sea. It is extensive, featuring a beautifully carved four-post king bed and two suede arm chairs for lounging next to the fireplace. If your office requires you to bring work to the beach, you can set up at a fantastic office area in the master bedroom. There is an en suite spa tub, separate glass shower and a bathroom with a toilet and European-style bidet. There is even a balcony facing the alley to allow in the ocean breeze. The guest bedroom on the second floor features a twin bunk bed with tropical stenciling around the room which stimulates the imagination. It’s a perfect space to accommodate children. The third bedroom on the second level has a queen bed with beautiful built-in furniture.

The most troubling problem was the refrigerator. We had 12 people and planned to cook, but the refrigerator was not working when we arrived and was not fixed until 2 1/2 days later. It worked for 2 days and then we came home after being gone all day and the temp in the fridge was 56 degrees and the "get service" light was on. When we called, the staff said it was too full (ridiculous) or we left the door open. Carpets were dirty. The furniture was fine. Location was great but overpriced based on other issues. Read more
Glad you enjoyed the location. Refrigerators work best if they're not packed full, because the air flow becomes restricted, which limits cooling capability. The maintenance department has been notified of the carpets. Thank you for writing.

This was our 2nd time here. Love the location but had many things break while there, Frig, Garage Door, Air-conditioning, faucets in master bath...Frig was out for first 5 days. Very inconvenient, lost a lot of food. Couldn't get our bikes out of the garage for 3 days. ??? Tons of fun after things were fixed. Read more

We enjoyed our stay on Newport Beach. However, I would have to say that my expectations for what we paid for were higher than what we actually received. The home is nice. Average. We've rented homes around the world over the past decade and the cost of this home rental was by far the highest. It was not, however, the nicest. Rips on the sofa cushions repaired by being hot-glued back together? Really? Also, being the 4th of July week, we were required to sign an agreement that we would abide by the laws and uphold the family-centered celebrations of Newport Beach. This led me to believe that a family-centered and family-valued atmosphere was in store. Not so - at all. If you are looking for a wild party on the 4th, then Newport Beach is the place for you! Not so much for families with small children. Perhaps Newport Beach is striving to become a family-centered Independence Day destination. They are not there yet. Burr White Realty was efficient and answered calls when the refrigerator stopped working. The home, however, is over-priced.

We had a family of 12 stay in this home for 6 nights. We had a very enjoyable vacation. The property is beautiful and conveniently located. We watched the dolphins and a sea lion out the family room window every morning. Great fully furnished unit. Had everything we needed. It could have been a little cleaner, there were spots on the carpet and some of the furniture, and the sheets and towels could have been a little fresher. Overall a very nice place and a great place for a family vacation. Read more
Hi Sandy, we appreciate that you took the time to review your stay with us. This is a fantastic property! We love the location, the spaciousness, and that you can watch sea creatures frolick in the sea from the family room! We will pass along your feedback about the cleaning and the linens so they are appropriately addressed by our cleaning and linen supervisors. That aside, we are so happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your vacation with us, and we hope you'll be able to return to Newport Beach soon!

You can tell the owners put a lot of money into the house. It is very roomy and conducive to sleeping many people. Great location. Some of the bedding was musty smelling and could have been cleaner. We did not think the cleaning crew did a good job before
our arrival. Food still in fridge, trash in kitchen, a few beds not made up. The kitchen could use some more cooking utensils (pots and pans).
