Set over a detached garage in a gorgeous private home on 1/3 acre in Newport Beach, this 'carriage house' studio has a private entrance off the driveway and looks out on a beautiful pool and garden.
Just 10 minutes toward the ocean from Orange County Airport, and 8 minutes from Big Corona Beach in Corona del Mar, this is an ideal place to enjoy one of the world's most beautiful and prestigious areas, including Laguna Beach, Newport Beach, Corona del Mar, Balboa, Newport Harbor, etc.
Much like a hotel suite, this is a large studio with attached bath--and is a perfect get-away where you can relax and explore all the wonders of one of California's most beautiful cities, Newport Beach. It does not have a kitchen--but has a small refrigerator and a coffee maker. Save the money you might spend on a hotel and enjoy eating out in an area famous for great restaurants of all kinds. (It's a short walk to Peet's Coffee and some great little cafe's...and we'll tell you where the best fish tacos are in town!)
Situated less than a mile from Fashion Island, Newport Center, you will be minutes from world class dining, shopping, entertainment, surfing, boating, hiking Crystal Cove State Park, Laguna Beach, biking, beach combing, golf, theater, etc.
We have beach chairs and umbrella as well as beach towels for your use...so you can pack light.
You see the photos of our pool in our listing--a great view you enjoy from our Carriage House studio. It and the back yard are not for guest use; but there is a terrific community pool, heated year round, about 2 blocks from our place--with swim lanes, nice lounge furniture, etc. You are welcome to use that facility.
Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm are just 25 minutes away; and South Coast Plaza and the Orange County Performing Arts Center are less than 15 minutes away as well.
The weather is great year-round--so come to Newport any time and enjoy all that Orange County's beautiful coastline has to offer.
No parties...this is a place for a quiet, relaxing get-away!
Ken greeted us on the first day we arrived and gave us some tips about locking the door. He was welcoming and pleasant. Our stay was relaxing and we came and left as we pleased. It was a very convenient location and for the most part very peaceful and quiet. We would definitely stay there again if traveling to that area of CA.
Ken was a lovely host, his home is beautifully kept and clean. Ken was extremely responsive and helpful during our stay. I would highly recommend his home to others!
My stay at Ken's Carriage House was great! The studio is really clean and has everything you need. The neighborhood is in a great location, quiet and safe. The room feels very cozy and is exactly what is shown in the photos.
Very nice place and very nice family, I love here so much! It is quite and pretty area, I live here about one week and now I am sure I got a very smart choose. Thank you Ken. Next time I will be back.
Ken was very gracious and welcoming. The carriage house was lovely as well. I would happily stay here again!
Ken's carriage house was perfect! Jen and I had a great stay, the photos are fully accurate and Ken's communication was first class. We would look no further than here if we come to stay in Newport Beach again. We would happily recommend to anybody!
We had a wonderful experience! I would highly recommend this place to any one or two people traveling through the Newport area. The only thing that should be noted is that the pool/hot tub are not for guests, but Ken lets you know that within the first email to him. It can just be a little misleading with all the pictures of it. Otherwise, this was a great place and close to great restaurants, shopping, parks and beaches.
