This property is well maintained, clean, wonderfully located, with a view that is tough to beat. The property owners were very nice and helpful with any questions we had. Overall it was the nicest home we have ever rented for a vacation. You will not be disappointed if you stay here.

The Sandcastle is perfect in every way. First off, Bill and Janice made everything easy from start to finish. (We were a group of 5 women on a girls trip.) Bill and Janice were helpful with any questions we had (which were not many because they provide excellent details and written instructions about the accommodations as well as a wonderful,...

When planning our January 2016 family vacation to Newport Beach, I was looking for a nice place on the Peninsula that would accommodate my group (husband, 2 and 4 year olds, and nanny). We lived in the area prior to relocating to Wisconsin 2 years ago, and this was our first trip back to Newport with the kids. Being familiar...

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!
