Renting a home for a week next May

We re coming for my sons college graduation. Want to stay near the ocean. We have stayed in Corona before but we really need 4 bedrooms. What area of Newport would you recommend ? Would love a roof top view of the ocean or easy walk to the beach.

I would contact Burr-White Realty and ask. They do short-term rentals as well as the more usual ones. Bring money.

Please be warned that many short-term rentals listed on Airbnb, VBRO and TA are illegal. Newport Beach has permitted short -term rentals in specific areas. It is important to confirm that your rental has a permit from the city. The agents like the one noted by traveller assure that for you and if there is a problem, they can be called and held responsible. Here is a map of the permitted short-term rentals in Newport Beach. If your rental is not shown, it isn't legal. nbgis.newportbeachca.gov/NewportHTML5Viewer/…

If you need 4 bedrooms, I assume you are coming with a large family. Please note that the neighbors will not tolerate parties, parking congestion or loud disturbances. The City of Newport Beach posts the police and fire calls within the last 7 days. You can see that there are many disturbance and parking complaints in the rental permitted areas, just within the last week: nbgis.newportbeachca.gov/NewportHTML5Viewer/…

Marriott has their timeshare property in Newport....Newport Coast Villas. I’d look at renting a couple units off of Redweek. You’d be legal and they probably have a common BBQ area, etc.

I looked at doing the same when my son graduated down there.

We have rented on the Balboa peninsula from VRBO 3 times in the last 4 years and once from Airbnb. All check out as legal on the supplied map. We've used Burr White many times as well. There is no reason to be afraid of any of them.

I agree on using Burr White. They are great to deal with. There are a couple of other rental agencies by the Balboa Pavilion, I just don't remember their names, but they should be easy enough to find on a search.

We've rented from Burr White 5 times and Cannery Rentals 4 times. The only problem we have ever encountered was with another agency that I probably shouldn't name here. The property was misrepresented and when we reported problems they remained unresolved. That may very well have been the fault of one bad salesperson, though. The agency gave us a partial refund and said that the individual no longer worked for them.

Good to know about legal areas. I will call Burr White. We have stayed at the Marriott property. I prefer closer to the beach. We normally stay in Corona but I think we’ll try Balboa island this time ! Thanks for all the info.
