About this listing
Nestled in the heart of charming Corona Del Mar just 2 blocks from the beach, I am offering my clean guest room with brand new Queen bed with memory foam topper for rent in my beach bungalow. You will get a real feel for beach living!
My place is great for getting away from it all, especially if you are active since I am less than 2 blocks from the beach where you can surf, lay out, have a sunset dinner or even an early breakfast right on the sand!
My home is very comfortable and casual. I'm a busy professional, clean, healthy, friendly and enjoy living in picturesque CDM. I'd like to open my home to those who are traveling and want to experience Corona Del Mar in the heart of the city, or simply here on business.
I offer cable, wireless internet, but more importantly, great conversation (or privacy if that's what you are after). As an extra perk, each Saturday morning there's a Farmers Market right outside the front door!
You'll have access to it all (furnished patio area, kitchen, living room and shared bathroom).
Interaction with Guests
* Some weeks I am away so you might even have the house to yourself! Especially holidays which makes booking an even better value for you!
* If two rooms are required, please ask. If I am scheduled to be out of town, 2 rooms can be arranged for an additional price.
The village of Corona Del Mar is not only picturesque but extremely convenient and highly sought after due to its size and location. My guests enjoy walking to local cafes, restaurants, bars, boutiques, grocery store, flower shops etc. making it a super convenient place to stay.
The surrounding area offer limitless activities & Balboa Island is just a short bike ride away. From there, you can take a $1 ferry ride across to the Newport Beach Peninsula. Laguna Beach is also in extremely close proximity at only a 5-10 minute drive down PCH.
The neighborhood is meticulously manicured all year round and the beach is clean and absolutely stunning!
Conveniently located, John Wayne/Santa Ana airport is just a 10 minute drive (approximately a $20 cab ride). If you have transport, San Diego is about 1.20 hrs South and LAX 45 min North.
Unlike most of Newport Beach (especially Balboa Island & the Peninsula), parking around my house is FREE and EASY to find :) There is also a bus stop just across the street which makes getting around very easy. Everything in Corona Del Mar, however, is WALKABLE :)
Overall, very easy to get to and very easy to get around from.

She was very pleasant and welcoming. Her booklet of neighborhood restaurants was good. Also guidelines for staying made sense and straightforward
This is a fabulous location, very close to some great breakfast cafes, as well as outstanding restaurants and the most beautiful beach. Marlina is a warm and welcoming host, who maintains her apartment very clean and clutter free. I enjoyed my stay a lot.
My daughter and I spent a long weekend at the bungalow. It was perfect for our trip. It was two blocks from the beach and right near shops and restaurants. Marlina was a great host. A very enjoyable stay.
Our host was extremely accommodating. I booked the wrong night and she still let us come and stay even in her room. Would definitely go back thank you!!!
Everything was perfect! Just a walk away from the beach, a cozy and comfortable place to stay and Marlina was a true gem! We felt right at home and it was such a wonderful place to come back to after 10 hour days in a conference! Location was amazing. We already have plans to book again next year!

About the Host, Marlina
I am a healthy young professional who loves to travel, read, watch movies, cook and walk to the beach from my bungalow. After University I spent a year working for UBS Investment Bank in London & was lucky enough to travel all over Europe so I love hearing about people's travels and swapping stories. I love to host and accommodate my guests to give them a warm and comfortable atmosphere to stay in. I am down to earth, considerate and friendly, looking for the same in my guests.
