Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I had a wonderful time staying with Jeff and Heather. Their place is located in a perfect location- just a few blocks from the beach and boardwalk. I arrived to a clean room with fruit, granola bars, water, and coffee waiting for me. I was traveling light and asked if I could borrow a blow dryer which Heather left for me. You could do everything on Balboa Peninsula by either walking or using one of Jeff's beach cruisers. I would highly recommend this-it's so relaxing and gives you the feeling of simplicity and beach life! Jeff also let my friend borrow a bike for the day and pumped our tires/adjusted our bikes.

    I give Jeff and Heather 5 stars and have already told so many of my friends about this place…there may be a wait list soon with my rave reviews. I'm already trying to figure out when I can visit again.

    Jeff and Heather are A+++ hosts and I highly recommend staying with them.

    Thank you both for a wonderful weekend. It couldn't have been better!

  • The Newman's were wonderful hosts. The room and bath were very private, comfortable and quiet. Everything Jeff told me was true and if he could possibly help me with anything he went out of his way to do that. He was very informative about things to do that were happening around Balboa. The location was ideal - so close to the ocean, stores shops etc. I'd recommend this place to anyone and I'd stay again, gladly. Parking could be challenging but then Jeff would jump in and provide a place for me. All of it was great.

  • Jeff and his family were excellent hosts. The property was just as described and then some. It was clean, cozy, and has an excellent location. Jeff made himself available if needed and was good about giving suggestions about places to go in the area. I am already planning on when I can make it back!

  • We had a great visit. Jeff made us feel so welcome and bent over backwards to make us comfortable. The beach cruiser bikes are a real plus ( had the tires all pumped up!) as it is such an easy and relaxing way to get around. He even loaned us beach chairs to take down to the beach.. did I mention it is only two short blocks away.?? The neighborhood is super safe, the accommodations comfortable and the access to the patio is divine.

  • Jeff and his wife were the most gracious hosts! Their comprehensive studio has everything you need to feel at home, including a comfy bed, tons of fresh fluffy towels, a HUGE HD tv, your own private bathroom with great shower pressure, and snacks/coffee. They even have bicycles for you to borrow!

    They were flexible with timing, easy to communicate with, and really took the time to make sure I was settled in completely. I also want to emphasize that Jeff's studio is one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed (comparable to the cleanliness of my mother's home, which is saying a lot).

    The location is perfect in Newport Beach, within walking distance to the beach, supermarket, fast food, restaurants, and bars. Very convenient and central. This is definitely a recommend for your stay in Orange County!

  • Jeff was an amazing host for our very first trip traveling with an infant. Upon arrival he immediately took stock of what we had and offered to let us borrow a pack and play and play mat from a neighbor! He is right there when you need him or quiet as a mouse, whichever you prefer. We were warned about hearing foot steps up above and the water heater behind the bed but this was not a problem for us nor our four month old, and given that I was often up during the night, I would have noticed any excessive noise.
    This is a great place to stay - within walking distance to a large grocery store, the beach and some great food (hit up Jeff's recommendations, and the Italian place Mama D's), but if you want to travel beyond the local hood I'd recommend a car.

  • I can't say enough good things about my stay at the Newmans' place. The room is great - airy, spacious, pleasant with lots of amenities I wasn't expecting. They go out of your way to both make you feel welcome and give you privacy. They left snacks and bottled water for me, along with helpful maps and guides.

    The house is just a few blocks from the beach and across the street from the canal. The community is very safe and pleasant, with lots of vacation homes next to year-rounders' places. The neighborhood is quiet but close to so is really convenient to everything in Newport Beach, especially with the beach cruisers that Jeff has available for guests.

    Parking in the area can be a challenge, especially on weekends. Jeff kindly allowed me to use his space when I couldn't find parking. Thanks Jeff!

    I've now used Airbnb three times, and by far this was the best experience. I definitely plan on staying there again when I go back to the area.

  • We really enjoyed our stay here. Jeff is extremely hospitable and made every effort to make our stay easy and enjoyable. The location is wonderful, and we enjoyed and appreciated all of the extra touches that Jeff provides,everything from the use of bicycles, to energy bars. Thank you very much, we hope that we will be able to stay here again when we head back to Balboa Peninsula and Newport Beach.

  • Jeff is a very warm and inviting host and does everything to make your stay a pleasant one. It is like having your own little apartment below their main living quarters with your own entrance. The room is large with a big comfy bed, little sitting area with extra folding chairs if needed. A little corner where there is a microwave, small fridge if you need one and Jeff has stalked the area with water, snacks, coffee etc. for your convenience. A nice clean bathroom with lots of towels and various soaps available and a nice hot shower. Parking is a problem in this area at night but this is a beach town and so you do what the locals do. Jeff was very accommodating whenever we got stuck for a spot and encouraged us to text him for help which we may not have done if we weren't so sure he didn't mind us doing so. Thanks Jeff. You are only a couple of small blocks to the beach area and a great promenade for walking or biking along the peninsula. We would recommend Jeff's place and would stay here again. Love the area and easy to find.

  • Jeff and his family did everything they could to make our 3-day stay enjoyable and comfortable: in particular, the bed was very comfortable, there was plenty of room, and Jeff and family were very responsive to our requests for help. We enjoyed the "beach" bikes, fruit, snacks and coffee in the room, the unexpected bottle of champaigne. and the less than 5-minute pedestrian access to the beach. Their recommendations of near-by places to eat were excellent.
