This is a fabulous property, comprised of two beach cottages, separated by a large interior courtyard. The interior and exterior have been updated, but the cottage feel is preserved.
The front patio has wicker seating and a market umbrella for enjoying the sunshine during the summer, as well as a heat lamp for staying warm during the off-season. Enter the front cottage through the dutch doors to the living and dining areas. The living area is just to the left, with a warm leather reclining loveseat, ottoman, a large flat panel TV, and a gas fireplace. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and a small built-in eating nook seating four.
The first bedroom has a double bed and a flat panel TV. Don?t be startled by the mini-great white shark mounted on the wall, it?s just for show! The second ?master? bedroom is located in the back of the house, with access to the interior courtyard. There is a double bed and a wall-mounted flat panel TV for your entertainment. There is one bathroom to accommodate guests, with a shower.
There is a lovely private courtyard, between the two cottages. It is wood-planked, and features a wicker glass-topped table with two matching chairs. There is also a large cast iron patio table, with seating for 8, and an umbrella for shade. There is a gas grill so the whole family can enjoy a feast on the BBQ. There is also an outdoor shower so you can wash off from the beach before going inside, and the fence has hooks to hang up your towels, wetsuits, and swim suits.
Enter the back cottage and find a compact but open and updated kitchen, with granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances. The walls are beautifully tiled in tiny white blocks, and the floors of the cottage are tiled in travertine. There is one bathroom in the hallway, with a shower. As you move towards the back of the property you?ll find a charming living and dining area. You can enjoy a meal at the high topped table with seating for two. The living room has a large brown leather sofa, which converts to a queen bed in the evening. There is a massive wall-mounted flat panel TV to keep you entertained in the evening.
As you carry on upstairs, you?ll find the master bedroom with a queen bed. The bedroom is semi-private; there is no door at the landing of the second floor, and is open to the stairway. There is a flat panel TV, and the space is open and bright, with plenty of windows, and several sky-lights atop the vaulted ceiling. There is also a ceiling fan to keep you cool in the summer.
There is one car parking in the garage, attached to the back cottage, with an interior entry into the living room. There is a stacked washer and dryer in the back bedroom in the front cottage.

Vicky C. from San Dimas, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2016 This is our second year at this location, and we are hoping for a third experience here next summer. All was terrific (especially the office staff welcome. Magnificent organization!). The parking in the side lot is all but impossible, so I think I'll park elsewhere next year.My only negative comments are that the Bar-B-Q was very, very dirty. I wish there had been a couple of rolls of paper towels when we arrived.Someone came to inspect damage to the fridge doors made by a previous tenant. I showed him that the reclining couch was permanently in the up position. He tried to fix it, but wasn't able to. He never returned.
A guest from Chandler, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2016 After coming here for the past four years we feel like this is our little beach cottage. It's perfect for our family. We are already looking forward to our next visit.
Renee K. from Chesterfield, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2016 The cottage was so cozy, spacious, and accommodating for our needs. Loved the privacy, kitchens (which we used), and especially the patio between the cottages!
Stacey W. from Foothill Ranch, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2016 Everything was great except the bedding. The comforters were dirty, sheets were thin and gross and sand was in the couch and floor up arrival
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Thank you for you feedback! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed most of your stay with us here at the beach. We apologize for the inconvenience of the linens, we use a third party vendor for those and we have spoken to them about it. This does not normally happen and we will be sure to keep tabs on them in a more efficient manner. As for the sand, our property inspection team most likely just missed that and we apologize for that as well. We are currently working on gaining more staff for such a reason, and in the future a situation like this is less likely to happen. We have staff on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week for situations like these, so please if you choose to stay with us again, give us a call so we can come fix the issue right away. We are glad to hear you had a good time with us, and hope to see you again in the future
Andrew K. from Windsor, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2016 My 3 teenagers, myself and wife had a great time in our beach cottage. It was very clean modern and well equipped. Just a few blocks from the beach, stores and restaurants. I would live to visit again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Thank you very much for the kind feedback! We are very happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay with us, and we hope to see you again in the future! Sincerely, The Burr White Staff
Great beach rental! 2 amazing cottages near beach and town!
Janet T. from Oklahoma City, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2015 Absolutely loved this beach rental! Wish I could have rented it for an entire week. This fabulous property actually has 2 separate cottages that are both beautifully decorated with modern amenities. It also has a lovely courtyard that separates the two cottages and a cute front porch. It just makes u feel like ur at home. I never wanted to leave except to go hang out on the beach and boardwalk which is only 2 blocks away. I had my family there and plenty of room for a small dinner get together for 12 people (we invited some friends). They all adored the place and no one wanted to leave. We couldn't have asked for a better place, conveniently located to shops (we walked to get pizza and coffee and groceries) and the main highway into Newport Beach. We really felt like part of the neighborhood and everyone by us were super friendly. Parking can be a bit of a hassle but that's just typical of any beach town. The rental does come with one car garage. There is no central AC but we found that we really didn't need it but we used the outdoor shower for the kiddos and the washer/dryer. Look forward to renting this unit again next time we are here.
A guest from Ontario, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in August, 2015 Our Vacation at the Beach was great!! we had a very relaxing time, going to the bars and restaurants, but mostly making dinners and talking with our Kids and there signifficent others. Our beach house was decorated very nicely and had 2 cottages, a bid porch in between the houses, 3 bedrooms and 2 kitchens, every thing was there we really didn't have to bring anything but our clothes. We had a Birthday party for my husband and also got a family portrait done at the beach. We had a great week!!
Lynn F. from Santa Maria, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2015 Both cottages were charming, well maintained. The inner courtyard was private & a great place for everyone to gather.
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Thank you for your review! We appreciate both your business and your feedback, and we hope to have you stay with us again in the future!
Dawna H. from Loomis, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2015 The cottages were both beautiful and we loved our location. Very close to the beach. We rented bikes from Bikes & Beach rentals and they were very accommodating and had nice new bikes. Would rent this cottage again for sure. Only hiccup was our Toyota Sequoia didn't fit in the garage--the garage was too short.
Dawn A. from Carnation, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2014 There were 4 of us and the cottages were great and we sat out every night on the patio and played cards. The patio is very private. We didn't rent a car & didn't have any problems walking. We took a day & got a cab and went to Balboa Island and Fashion Island and that was convenient. The beach was a short 1 1/2 block walk which seemed even closer when you walked it.
A guest from Marquette, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 Our rental was in wonderful shape - not as big as it looks in the pictures, but plenty big for four adults and two children. We even hosted 30+ people for a family reunion one afternoon and it was perfect. Everyone remarked on how great the cottages were. A few family members expressed interest in renting the property themselves in the future.
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty We are pleased that you liked this beach cottage. The City of Newport Beach and this home have specific occupancy limits. 30+ people are well over the occupancy limits. We are glad that you and the property owner weren't cited and/or fined during your family reunion.
Ginger M. from Chandler, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 We had another wonderful family vacation week. Our kids and grandkids now refer to the cottage as our beach house. It really is our home away from home. This year we had some maintenance (burned out fan) and plumbing issues (backed up shower) that were quickly resolved by a very professional team. The attention to detail from the cleaning team wasn't there this year. We had dirty sheets and blankets and they didn't clean under the furniture so there was hair, Q-Tips, paper, etc., under the beds and dressers. That part was disappointing because last year the property was pristine. I don't anticipate that will happen again but if it does I will inform Burr White immediately. We look forward to returning to 'our beach house' next summer!
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Thank you for your comments regarding your experience at this beach house. We are so pleased that you feel it is your home away from home. We do apologize that the cleaners did not pay attention to the details. In the future, please give us a call, if you run into a situation like this again. We will get them back out to the property to address any issue immediately. This is not how we strive to do business. We look forward to seeing you again very soon!! KR
Kim R. from Visalia, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 Perfect vacation house and location. Very clean and perfectly equipped. The people around the property were so warm and friendly. Would lived to have stayed longer.
A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2014 This place is wonderful. You can tell someone went above and beyond when selecting the finish's and furnishings. The home is done in light airy tones of white and blues with coordinating furniture and accessories. The kitchens have absolutely everything you need to cook and entertain right down to martini glasses, serving platters and ti light candles for the table. Everything is very well done and the entire house is set up and furnished for a relaxing beach get away. I love the house layout with the joining courtyard, perfect for either 2 families or adults on one side and older kids on the other. We grilled out on the patio each night and enjoyed the outdoor heaters and cozy 6 person dining table. When it was beach time we used the chairs, umbrellas and toys provided on the courtyard and arrived at the beach in under 5 minutes walking distance. This is not a typical thrown together party like beach house, but a very elegant and cozy home for families. You can really tell the owners thought out every detail and sparred no expense in doing so. Can't wait to return.
Kimbie N. from The Woodlands, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2014 The property was a slice of heaven. Super clean, simple beach décor. We could tell the owners put a lot of love and care in the décor. 1 1/2 from the beach and 1/2 block overlook to the bay. Enjoyed passing quaint houses through the neighborhood as we walked to the beach everyday. Just minutes, so quick which was important to us. Also, walked to the grocery store only 2 blocks up the street! Outdoor areas in the front of the house and courtyard in between cottages were enjoyed by all. Sat out there for morning coffee and evening wine. Also, Burr White was great to work with and really helped us out as we booked last minute. Great checkin/checkout, super easy. If you have a chance to stay here, do it! Amazing.
Adorable cottages, but the beds are not too comfy.
A guest from Seahurst, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2014 The cottages are cute and the back courtyard was great to host a barbeque for about 15 of us. They have a great barbeque and propane heaters and comfortable outdoor furniture. The places are clean and kitchens pretty well-equipped. A knife sharpener would be great to have though. The mattresses really should be replaced. They are worn out and not comfortable anymore. Garage is too small for most mid-large cars. We just pulled in and then left the door open since we could not close it with the car inside. This is a nice area of Newport Beach, but still some late night partying going on.
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Thank you for your review. The beds have been replaced. Your comments have been forwarded to the maintenance department. Unfortunately, Newport Beach was built before larger vehicles became popular. Please let us know next time you are in the area.
A guest from Beaverton, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2013 We all had a great vacation staying in Newport Beach at your cottage. We were all comfortable and the youth enjoyed being able to go to the beach on their own because it was so close. We found the cottage met our needs and was very clean. Our only problem was we had to figure out the trick to opening the back door to the front cottage. (You have to pull in on the handle.) The garage also is not designed for parking a van, but we managed by leaving the garage door open. We would definitely stay there again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Excellent. Unfortunately Nepwort Beach was built before larger vehicles became popular. Glad it all worked out. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
Bill D. from Omaha, NE recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2013 This is a great rental for families: having two houses with an interior courtyard area, and only a few blocks from the beach, is ideal and this property is amazingly clean and well maintained. Our family would definitely return for another visit.The only watch out is that the garage is smaller and you will not be able to fit an SUV or larger car. If you have larger vehicle parking is possible on the streets around this property, but you have to be careful with street sweeping days etc.
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Awesome. Thanks for the pointers.
Rhea C. from Redlands, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 This house was the perfect house for our family. We had the front and back unit. The court yard in between the two house was a great place for the family to gather to eat, talked and let the grandkids play. We are renting this house for our 2014 vacation.
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Looking forward to seeing you again next year. Thank you.
Ginger M. from Chandler, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 We couldn't have asked for a better 'home away from home' for our family vacation. We will definitely be back next year. Thanks Burr White!
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Thank you for your review Ginger! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at this cute home! The front patio and inner courtyard is perfect for a family gathering and we are thrilled that your family enjoyed everything. The location of this property is fantastic because it's an easy walk to the beach, local restaurants and grocery store! We will look forward to having you and your family stay with us again next year! -the staff at Burr White
Jean & Ben S. from Weston, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013 It was exactly as it look in the pictures. The little touches like fresh flowers made it so special. We used the beach chairs beach umbrella heat lamps at night patio chairs all the extra's made it perfect. The best part was it was very clean and I am fussy. Two short blocks to the beach and walking distance to grocery store was wonderful.
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Thank you for your review, Jean & Ben!
A guest from Arroyo Grande, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2013 Staff at Burr White was fantastic and always quick to reply. The house is adorable and kept in great condition and only minutes to walk to the beach. I only wish there was a later check out time to enjoy more time at this fabulous rental!
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty We wish we could allow you to stay late too - it's so hard to leave!!! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope you'll stay with us again soon.
Dana M. from Sunland, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2013 We had a wonderful time. We celebrated my daughters bday and she couldnt have been happier. Thank you.
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Hi Dana, We're so happy to hear that your family was able to enjoy your daughter's birthday here at the beach! Happy Birthday to her, from all of us at Burr White! Thank you for your review and we hope you'll come back to stay with us again soon.
