We own a Marriott Time Share and spend several days each year at this Marriott situated on the Pacific Ocean at Newport Coast.
You do not have to own a time share to rent a unit at this Marriott.
Each unit is 2 bedroom/2bath fully furnished including a washer and dryer. The units we have used all have a balcony overlooking the Pacific. There are several pools, shuffle board and other areas including a workout center and a golf course.
Nearby is Laguna Beach, down the road is San Juan Capistrano and so many other places to visit too numerous to mention. About 2 hours South is San Diego.
If we win the lotto we are moving to Newport Coast - it is to die for! Moderate Weather Year Round.
