This was my first time airbnb-ing and I had a wonderful experience. I love meeting new people just as Jeff and his family obviously do. The room was perfect, a combination of "in the home" but nevertheless nicely "separate" from the family's living quarters-like a mini apartment. It was central to all the best restaurants and the beach/boardwalk. The microwave and refrigerator with water and snacks and tea was really appreciated as was the beach bike!
Jeff and his family were lovely, he was so helpful and friendly and genuine, couldn't do enough to help us but also gave us as much space as we wanted. Parking was perfect. The place itself is v good, comfy bed and great bathroom and living space. Would definitely stay again :)
I have stayed at many places with many hosts, this place exceeded all expectations we ever could have had. The space was exactly what we needed, comfortable and quaint. Family made us feel right at home and made sure we were always comfortable. Went above and beyond as a host, we were even offered surfing lessons! We got to fully experience Newport Beach, from bike rides to food recommendations, they made us feel at home. Much better than any hotel experience. Would come back in a heartbeat.
What everyone said below is true, and that's why my wife and I decided to book this place for our one year anniversary. I had ZERO problems during my whole weekend there. Right when I arrived, parking was a nightmare, but no need to fear because Jeff held a parking spot for us. If you stay close to newport, you will only need to park once as we walked and biked every where. When we got into our room, he had two laminated sheets of info that answered every possible question we may have from food, to activities, to wifi, etc.
It was an AMAZING experience and the location could not be more perfect. It's a 2 minute walk to the beach and a 2-10 minute walk to all the restaurants you can ask for.
Also, Jeff lent us two bikes to use (FREE), which made cruising around a lot easier! Take advantage of those.
Oh and the bed is DEATHLY COMFORTABLE. You don't want to get out of it.
We cannot wait to go back and will definitely stay here again.
Don't hesitate, just book this place.
I can't say enough about Jeff and his place! He was so welcoming I quickly felt as though I'd known him a long time. He is laid-back and easy-going yet there was so much attention to detail. The place is exactly as described. It is very, very clean with an "over-the-top" comfortable bed. I was welcomed with a bowl of fresh fruit and bottled water, etc. The location is convenient- close to the beach and restaurants and the neighborhood is safe. Jeff told me about a great coffee shop which I loved riding his "beach bike" to in the mornings. Riding on the boardwalk and around town on the bike which he provided was a real highlight for me. I loved every bit of the experience there.
A lively, lovely place to stay! Newport is a beautiful and fun beach town to visit and Jeff was a wonderful host, giving us advice on favorite recommended local activities and restaurants. The room was well equipped with anything we could possibly need. Thank you for your hospitality!
