Interaction with Guests
I will be residing in Orange County but a few miles inland. If you should need anything I could be here in 30 minutes.
I love that I can walk to everything. Coffee houses, theatre, mall, restraunts and of course the beautiful ocean. The weather is awesome and you can hike to Crystal Cove which in my opinion is more beautiful than Hawaii.
Uber is the best! and there are bikes too.
Other Things to Note
Plenty of places to work out in this area. Beautiful weather year round. Laguna Beach is about 10 minutes away.
You can have a pet here but please do not let animals on the furniture. Smoking outside only please.
Had a great mini vacation in Corona del Mar! House is in the perfect location and was very homey and comfortable. Her description is spot on!
Can't wait to book another trip!

My husband, daughter and I spent a week here leading up to and including the Fourth of July holiday. We normally go to SanDiego but wanted to spend a day at Disneyland without actually having to stay in Anaheim so we decided to try the Newport/CDM area. It was very convenient to the park and only took us about 30 minutes to get there with very little traffic.
The house is pleasant and tastefully decorated. It is extremely convenient to just about everything in the area. The walk to the beach is about 3/4 of a mile and takes about 25 minutes if you are towing beach gear, kids, chairs, etc. So, better to drive unless you do not have all of that stuff to drag along.
We brought our dog and I was able to take some great walks with her all around the neighborhood. The beaches here are all dog friendly until 9am and after 5:30pm in season. There is great all day, off leash dog beach a short drive away right on the border of Hungtington Beach.
It was nice to have a parking area right in front of the garage. There are cars parked up and down the streets continuously so the parking that is offered is the best option.
Overall, it was a good experience.
My husband, 8 month old baby and I stayed in Glenda's home for business and vacation. There are many positives about this home and therefore great potential however our family had an overall negative experience. The location is wonderful. The house is in walking distance to the beach, stores, juice bars, Starbucks, and great restaurants. You really don't need a car. Our family walked everywhere. The house has a very cute uncovered porch in the front and an enclosed patio in the back. The house is cozy and quaint and was the perfect size for our family. Unfortunately upon arrival, the house was NOT CLEAN. This was very unsettling and a major disappointment. There was dust and grime on all surfaces. The linens did not smell clean. There were coffee stains on the counter and even dog poop on the back patio. Due to the timing of our arrival and the fact that we needed to stay in CDM for a week, we decided to just deal with the mess. We washed all of the linens (sheets, towels, bath/kitchens mats, blankets) and spent several hours cleaning. We did contact Glenda upon arrival to notify her of the situation. We arrived on a Sunday however she was not able to arrange for someone to come clean until the 5th day of our stay. We did share our issues with airbnb and we were satisfied with the resolution for our negative experience. Airbnb was very helpful and easy to work with given the circumstances. I think it is in very poor taste to allow guests into your home in such a state. It's likely that it was unintentional however there was no sense of urgency from the owner to fix the problem.
Glenda's quaint home was in a great location, close to restaurants, coffee shops and the beautiful beach. Parking was available.
Glenda's home was perfect for our 2 week - family of 4 vacation in Corona Del Mar. The house is well appointed with very comfortable beds, high quality linens and a very nice living area. It met all of our needs. It was unusually hot while we visited so that was somewhat of a challenge with no A/C but the fans in her home work well and helped to mitigate the heat and poor air flow. The last few days were much cooler and typical for the area - with wonderful ocean breezes. The house is within close walking distance to everything… lots of great restaurants, coffee (Starbuck's is a block away), banks, grocery stores, and best of all the OCEAN! I was able to go running every morning straight from the house…what a treat. Our kids are 4.5 yrs old and had no problem walking the approximate 10 minutes to and from the beach. Parking is available in the driveway which is really helpful. We parked our larger SUV in the driveway with no problems. We would definitely stay here again and appreciate Glenda's responsive communication, flexibility with a few date changes and her attention to detail.
Beautiful home in a perfect location! We stayed for 3 weeks, spent our day by the beach (in close walking distance) and enjoyed the neighborhood. Our kids loved the nearby parks, and the cottage worked really well for our family. Glenda was great to deal with - very professional and accommodating. I would definitely recommend a stay here!

About the Host, Glenda
Hello future Airbnb visitor,
My name is Glenda and I have lived in beautiful CDM for three years. I am a local realtor here in OC and I know this area very well. I love meeting people, entertaining, shopping, walking and I enjoy traveling.
I live a few short blocks to the beach. The views especially the sunsets are breath taking and beautiful. You can walk your dog here and walk on the beach with your dog in CDM before 10 am and after 4pm. If you want to go to Dog Beach we have that too. Talking to neighbors and participating in local events is a norm here and there is always something going on. The weather here is perfect! I really enjoy the fine restaurants and wine bars which are just a short walk from my home and I can tell you all about the great things to do here in this area and in Laguna Beach which is also very close.
I would love to have you over. It is really cool here and my house is very comfortable and quaint.
So feel free to call me if you have any questions. Enjoy your day and see you soon.
