Owner Managed, Impeccably Maintained, Your Newport Beach Vacation Home Away From Home

Sand Castle was fantastic. Very clean and steps away from the sand.

Sand Castle was fantastic!! Janice and Bill were amazing! We were a late arrival and entered the house with lights and music playing. We immediately felt right at home. Everything about the house was comfortable, including the beds! We were in Irvine for a lacrosse tournament and wanted to stay at the beach. The house »

Balboa Island annual ART WALK was great!

Yesterday was a gorgeous day! Perfect to do the annual art walk stroll along Balboa Island’s South Bayfront. Lots of vendors – and about six bands playing along the art walk.

Great location, great accommodations!

Our family spend 5 days at the Sandcastle at the end of March. We loved the proximity to the beach and boardwalk for long, not-so-lazy days of chasing waves and riding bikes. The home was very clean and we loved having the laundry facilities and comforts of home. Janice was so helpful in sharing ideas »

So much fun!

The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with appliances and dishes. We enjoyed meeting the owners and would love to stay again the »

Great place close to the beach!

The house was the perfect location for us to spend a long weekend on the beach with our daughters and their significant others.

The SANDCASTLE is perfect. Clean, comfortable, steps from the sand and we loved everything about it!

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect vacation home. Everything was really great, from the comfortable furniture and beds to the kitchen cabinets chock full of very nice kitchenware, to the nice tile master bathroom and the comforters and linens on all the beds. Really, we were ecstatic when we walked in the front »

My 2016 Summer Vacation

We have vacationed in Newport Beach 12 times over the past 14 years and “The Sandcastle” is by far our favorite place. The location is perfect and the house was immaculately clean. This is the only house we’ve stayed where bed linens, bath & beach towels and beach chairs and an umbrella was provided. And »

Perfect Hosts

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.  5 STARS (out of 5)   Date of Stay: 8/16   Guest: the Shoolbraids from The Hague, Netherlands; posted on TripAdvisor
