The place itself is great, very clean location great, beds ARE excellent. Towels and paper items are cheap considering the overall property and their RULES (not the same rules posted with VRBO perhaps we missed that?). The one bathroom shower (there is a shower outside for beach sand) has absolutely no pressure.
We called the management company with an issue and they indicated someone will come but not sure when, their maintenance people make their own schedule. As far as we know they never showed up and there was no follow up. (We got what wasn't working, shower, to work for the most part, eventually) We don't know if they came or not while we were out.
Just a warning, this is not managed like a typical VRBO. The management company requires a FULL CONTRACT signed and initialed outside of VRBO, online. You would have to request a copy of what you sign, it doesn't appear to provide a way to save it. Communication and mails are almost all outside of the VRBO application and tend to go to spam. The check-in process IS a process and you have to go to another location (not walking distance and not sure how they accommodate late arrivals, it's a typical business with specific hours) to pick up a key (garage remote) and sign MORE paperwork (redundant) AND provide a copy of a driver's license. Check-out also requires a stop at the rental office to return the garage door opener or fees apply (although there is a key drop for this...). The people at the management company are pleasant.
If you're expecting a typical VRBO rental, which is normally keyless, well... The property is keyless, the process of getting into it, was not necessarily expected.

The upper condo (cottage) was perfect for our short stay in Newport Beach. We were a close walk to the beach. The neighborhood was incredibly quiet (probably because of the noise ordinances) and very clean. The unit is very well stocked (kitchen, beach, and other stuff) and had everything we needed. Plenty of storage for our stuff and the garage (and parking space) were life savers!

The property was so clean clean clean!!! The adorable upstairs unit was bright and decorated so perfectly. We had never visited Newport before but this was the perfect spot on the Peninsula, 5 min walk to the beach, close to stores and restaurants, yet very quiet. We were a family of 4 that stayed here and the only thing we would have like would have been a second bathroom but honestly that did not put a dent on our stay here. We loved cappy’s cottage, and would definitely stay here again.

This was an amazing condo and location. Everything was very clean and well maintained and a very short walk to the beach and lots of local restaurants. The only complaint I have is when two people are sharing the garage it is VERY difficult getting in and out as the alley is narrow so its tricky! Other than that HIGHLY reccomend this location.
I did stop and check in and checked out at Beachview which I feel was unnecessary and could have just left the remote on the counter at check out since we enter with a code.

There is nothing to not like about this place. The unit has everything needed for a great beach vacation. A/C came in handy as it was unseasonably hot the week we were there. It is located a short five minute walk to the beach with beach chairs, umbrella, cart, and towels all provided. Washer/dryer unit in garage. It is also a short walk for groceries. The unit is beautifully decorated with garage parking provided. We had a great time and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. I highly recommended this unit for anyone wanting to stay in Newport Beach.
