The house was the perfect location for us to spend a long weekend on the beach with our daughters and their significant others. The house was very clean, well appointed and the perfect size for 6 adults. We enjoyed their boogie boards and chairs on the beach, their BBQ and patio for meals. The kitchen had all that we needed...

Sandcastle exceeded our expectations in all respects. Janice and Bill were friendly, helpful and great sources of local knowledge. The apartment was extremely well equipped and had a great location just off the beach.

About the neighborhood
We're located one house off the oceanfront/white sand beach/boardwalk (JUST 30 STEPS) and an easy 10 minute stroll on the boardwalk to the Newport Pier. Enjoy the area and the beach without a car - or with a car, you're just a short drive to Disneyland, an hour from LA and 1.5 hours from San Diego, a perfect location! Fly into John Wayne/Orange County SNA airport (10 minutes away) or into LAX or LGB.
Getting around
Southern California is a sprawling place - and our public transportation is not so great. Either rent a car, if you are planning on doing a lot of sight seeing. Or if you are planning on having a low-key beach vacation, you really won't need one. You can rent bikes to get around here on the Peninsula - or just walk. Or cab or Uber around. Nearby, we have a major supermarket, movie theatre, casual to 5-star restaurants, everything you could need to chill and enjoy, without a car. So whatever your needs, you can plan accordingly!
Access
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: SantaAna/John Wayne/OC (SNA): 8.1 mi
You can fly into any of the SoCal airports: LAX is an hour away (a little more during rush hour traffic) but SNA (aka John Wayne) airport is 12 minutes away - and you can even drive here just on surface streets, without even getting on a freeway. If you're flying Jet Blue, LGB (Long Beach) is about 35 minutes away, Ontario is an hour+. You can even fly into Ontario airport (approx 1 hr away) or San Diego International airport, which is 2 hours away!
