For the amount of money this rental was. Few more amenities. Clocks in bedrooms. Rental chairs and umbrellas terrible. tV in a bedroom did not work. No tv in another. Cooking equipment very minimal. All these things should have been checked out before hand by rental company. More towels included.
Thank you for sharing. The maintenance department has been notified. We will discuss with the home owners as well. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

“Molly's Fabulous Vacation”
Left on 08/19/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | Virginia A.Reviewed Aug 19, 2013Stayed Aug 2013
I have been renting from Burr White for many years. This luxury home is the best yet. It was spacious, luxurious and absolutely fabulous. My 90 year old mother was with us on this family vacation and the elevator was a great help to her. It also provided ease in taking up luggage when arriving and taking down luggage on our departure. Everyone in the family had a wonderful time and agree that this home was the most luxurious of all the luxury homes we have rented in the past. We can hardly wait for our family vacation in 2014 in this home.
We apologize for any inconvenience. The cleaning department will be adjusting their schedules accordingly. Thank you for your comments.

“1028 Oceanfront 2013”
Left on 07/16/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | Jeffrey S.Reviewed Jul 16, 2013Stayed Jul 2013
When we arrived at the property there were no garbage bags, no shampoo, few rolls of toilet paper and paper towels, for an expensive rental the kitchen was inadequately kept for any sort of cooking with several of the usual appliances such as the toaster, blender, etc were not working or not in the unit. For the cost it was grossly inadequate in many ways. In addition we were not able to get into the unit due to cleaning until about 3:30. We will not rent this unit again - someone obviously hasn't taken care of it. For this amount of money we expected more.
Alyson! Thank you so much for taking the time to do a review for this beach home. It was great meeting you and your family and we are thrilled you had a wonderful stay. The location of this house is fantastic, it's walking distance to Balboa Pier, grocery store and local restaurants. We hope to see you again in the future, I know this home would love to have you come back! Have a great rest of the summer and see you again soon! -the staff of Burr White

We had a GREAT family reunion with children and grandchildren (all adults!) from North Carolina, Utah and California. Much better than a 5 star hotel for that purpose. A lot of visiting (and eating) in the kitchen. Great location.
Hi Chris, We're so happy to hear that you had a great time. We hope that you'll be able to come back again in 2013! Thanks again, Chris!

not real user friendly for the kids, and too maney restrictions, sand on the floor!! (it's on a beach) and counter top concerns. Also,with no screens on the doors or windows in order to enjoy the nice breeze we had to put up with flies everywhere not fun!! nice place if you don't have small children.
Hi Dennis, Thanks for your review. We're so happy to hear that you had a great vacation and we hope that you'll be back again this summer!

For such an expensive high end rental the owner needs to spend $100 at Ikea or crate & barrel and equip the kitchen properly for the amount of people it sleeps. there was not 1 cutting knife. bread knife. Not one large pan to saute anything (I bought one and left it there!!) one more large pot. Set of champagne glasses. It was ridiculous not to be able to make pancakes in the morning!!
“Way over-priced rental property Arb'd by the Realtor”
Left on 04/15/2009 for a stay in April 2009 | Mark H.Reviewed Apr 15, 2009Stayed Apr 2009
I noticed when I looked back at my invoice, that the Burr White Agent did not break out her fee - my guess is I got arb'd pretty good relative to the owner what I paid what the Agent/Burr White got. The property was way over-priced to the market. The floors in the house were dirty the overall condition of the property was poor - carpeting was in the bedrooms was stained old. Notwithstanding the pictures of cozy fireplaces jacuzzi tub, I arrived to find a notice that I was not allowed to use the Fireplaces - the key to turn the gas on, was gone. The notice on the Kitchen table also informed me that the Jacuzzi Tub in the Master Bedroom was not functioning could not be used - even though there were wonderful pictures on the web site. None of this was disclosed in my conversations with Jane T. of Burr White when I rented the house - total misrepresentation. Two days before we left, a notice was put on the garage door that the house was under request for permit to tear it down for a new house to-bebuilt. for all of that I paid $11,000 for 4/3-4/13 - in this market, for the quality of the product I won't go into all the details, but the house is nothing like the pictures basically a dump - as evidenced by the notice on the garage from the city (tear-down). I have rented 40-50 rental homes from Qwest on the outerbanks of NC also at least once prior from Burr WHite in Newport beach at least once, this was the worst rental experience I have ever had.

“Very poor qualityproperty - be very careful renting from this co”
Left on 08/31/2008 for a stay in August 2008 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Aug 31, 2008Stayed Aug 2008
We rented a beach front property in August; the property was advertised as a luxury house, with the price to go with it ($10,000 per week). The house was damp, very poorly equipped (non-functioning master bathroom, broken door lock, virtually empty ktichen). Indeed, there was a planning notice on the house detailing an application for its demolition. Burr White had virtually no interest in our problems, failing to visit the property and have not responded to our emails. We left after 2 nights and will seek a refund. Bear in mind that Burr White act for the property owners and once they have your money have no interest in you as a customer. The rental contract gives you no protection (read the small print); you cannot believe their advertising, so I advise you to rent from them with extreme caution.
