Cherie is a warm and welcoming host for an Air BNB stay! She made me feel right at home in her charming and relaxing beachside cottage from the get-go. Coffee and healthy snacks in the fridge were just the right touch after my cross country drive to get to SoCal. She is a lovely person with a genuine heart of gold. I love the open air feel of her cottage, and it's ideally located right behind the Balboa Peninsula beach boardwalk and beach. It can be quite busy on that boardwalk, especially weekends, so it's actually ideal to be a few steps from all that activity. Having my own parking spot behind the house was also *very* helpful. Cherie is a wealth of knowledge and information about all of the OC, and she was very generous with her time in answering my questions and sharing helpful information.
I flew my mother out for Thanksgiving this year and put her up at Cherie's place for 5 days (this is my first AirBnB experience). Cherie is a super awesome person and went out of her way to host my mom! Everything on her property description is "dead on"! One house away from the beach although you can see the beach from the rental bedroom and hear the waves at night. Perfect neighborhood (Balboa) for walking to shopping, food, entertainment, ocean views and killer sunsets! Cherie also does a light breakfast (fruit, yogurt, juice, coffee, etc.) catered to order for my mom and her other guests. Cherie was super easy to deal with and made everything about the situation completely painless! I would recommend Cherie and her place to ANYONE based on my / my mother's experience! You will not find a better deal or a better host!
Cherie was very warm and welcoming! Literally, you are as close to the beach as 2 million dollar properties!
Neighborhood was beachy and residential, but close to shops, restaurants, and local attractions! Take the ferry over to Balboa island; for a serendipitous adventure awaits! Charming and very cape cod!
Cherie went out of her way to make sure breakfast items were available, the fresh fruit and bagels w cream cheese were scrumptious! She even made coffee for me!
Cherie is a fabulous host and I hope to return for a visit in the future!
Cheers and enjoy your newport peninsula home away from home!
Cherie and her home are really two great airbnb gems. The house is at a perfect "pier-to-pier" location in Newport Beach. Off-street parking is available but it was really easy for me to park on the street. The rear entrance to the cottage near the room was very convenient and led straight out to the beach and the Oceanfront path. It's great for biking, walking, jogging, and just enjoying the beach scene. Several restaurants, bars and other fun spots (and a library!) are within a short walk or bike ride from the house.
Cherie will reach out before your stay to ask about what breakfast goodies she can stock for you, which is a really nice bonus. I would definitely recommend Cherie's place to a friend!
Cherie was a warm and engaging host thinking of every detail to make our stay very comfortable.
We enjoyed perfect weather which allowed us to enjoy the beach, steps away, and ride the bikes on the boardwalk. Cherie was made sure the bikes were ready to use.
For anyone considering this "room" with a full bed, the location is close to airport and is located on the Main Street. Noise is a factor.
We've had a perfect stay in Cherie's house. Everything from first contact, welcome, hospitality, rooms and facilities to location and neighborhood was simply perfect. Cherie is a wonderful person who helps and supports you whenever needed. We highly recommend this place to everybody. That was one of our best airbnb experiences ever!
About the Host, Cherie
Hi, I'm Cherie! I'm an active, self employed woman enjoying this stage of my life. I’m a friendly, easy going person who is involved in my church and my community. I'm always happy to lend a helping hand and really love meeting new people from all kinds of backgrounds. My social circle includes friends of all ages from many walks of life. I've raised my sons; now they are married with children of their own and I enjoy living a relaxed beach lifestyle. My favorite past time is hanging out on the beach with a good book or a good friend...sometimes both!
