Anfang März habe ich drei Nächte in dieser sehr schönen Unterkunft verbracht. Ich war geschäftlich unterwegs und Cherie hat sich vor und auch während der Zeit prima gekümmert - kann ich nur jedem empfehlen. Der Standort ist ideal für lange Spaziergänge und Fahrradtouren.
I've been at Cherie's charming house for a few days (17-21th Feb). I was looking for a place where I could spend some time with my son who is on an exchange period at UCI, cook a meal for him and where he could sleep over in case he wanted to. Cherie told me in advance it was ok with her. My son came every day for dinner, slept over and reached the anteater bus to the UCI campus every morning by bike which is available at the house. It has been a very nice time for us to be toghether at Cherie house. Cherie was a kind and very special host for us. She is such a nice person to be with and we enjoyed sharing conversations and her lovely house.
Cherie is a beautiful welcoming person with a nice place just steps from sand, waves, and sunshine!!! I had a great time visiting and hope to be back someday. Thanks Cherie!
Cherie was a fantastic host, and her home is a historic cottage lovingly restored on Balboa Peninsula, an interesting area to explore. We spent 5 nights there, and were comfortable in a roomy bedroom. A parking spot was definitely a plus, especially as in summer we heard its hard to find parking. We had coffee on the beach each morning, as it was a great location for beach walks, near restaurants and shops, with the walking and cycle path at your doorstep. We had full use of her kitchen, which she left well stocked with breakfast food to use at our leisure. We spent our last night sharing our stories and left feeling like we had made a new friend. Everything we needed was there, beach chairs, beach towels, extra sweaters for cool nights etc etc. Highly recommended for anyone wanting a little getaway with a lovely host!
Cherie did everything she could to make us comfortable .She has restored her cottage and made it into a cozy and pleasant place to stay. We liked chatting with Cherie; she has interesting stories. It felt like staying with an old friend.
WOW! What a fabulous stay! I came to Newport Beach for a business trip & stayed for 16 nights with Cherie at her charming home. By the end, I felt like I had a new home-away-from-home and a new friend.
The pictures on airbnb do not do Cherie's home justice - it is gorgeous, comfortable, and a welcome change of pace from a boring hotel. The location is amazing - on the water, near all the fun of the Balboa peninsula, with easy access to business in Orange County. My room was beautiful and the bed was super comfortable.
While parking in November wasn't an issue - I appreciated having a dedicated space that I could count on. And for folks coming in the summer - this is a BIG deal. Parking on the Balboa peninsula in the summer is a competitive sport.
And Cherie - what can you say about a hostess as gracious and welcoming as Cherie? She gives you plenty of space when you want it - and is easy to contact for questions and help when you need it. She even made me chicken soup when I came down with a cold at the end of my trip.
I highly recommend Cherie and her home - please consider staying with her (just not when I am planning to return for another trip!)
Thank you Cherie!
We stayed for 2 nights with Cherie and she was a wonderful host. She was very friendly and helpful with suggestions of places to go, things to do and where to eat. The bikes she let us use were PERFECT for getting around town. We didn't use our car at all. Her home is beautiful and very clean. She definitely makes you feel at home.
I highly recommend Cherie's cottage. More than anything else, Cherie makes her home, your home. You can rejuvenate your spirits with the roar of the Ocean. Cherie’s place was wonderful. It truly was a tranquil, waterfront and Oceanfront retreat. The sandy, white beach is within walking distance of her backyard. Literally, you can walk straight to the sand and beach from her home. Her home is lovely and relaxed. The auto ferry is within two blocks. The library is across from her cottage. I would recommend Cherie’s cottage, as a peaceful sanctuary.
Cherie was a great host! The cottage is just 5 seconds from the beach, very cozy & clean.
Cherie is a "Fantabulous" host. She had seasonal fruit at hand & coffee with 5 different creamers. The house is quaint and warm. I felt right at home. Thank You for making me feel so welcome in your home. Mom & I had a Great time in Newport Beach.
