And you don't have to be a seasoned chef to enjoy what our kitchen supplies; from cooking spices and storage containers to granite countertops and new appliances, the kitchen contains everything you need to make simple snacks for a day at the beach or a delicious dinner for the whole family. The master bedroom enjoys an ocean view from a comfortable queen bed, private bath, television and access to the patio. The second bedroom has a queen bed, television, and a view of the Historic Balboa Pier, while the last bedroom has a full and single bunk bed. All three televisions have access to DirecTV, so no one has to miss their favorite sitcom or drama while on vacation. There is also an in-unit washer and dryer and WiFi for your convenience. The condo is located just steps away from many popular activities such as boating, paddle boarding, kayaking, and the famous Balboa Fun Zone and Ferris wheel. There are two bicycles available for picturesque rides on the boardwalk or a visit to the Newport Pier. If you want to venture off the boardwalk, you are only a short stroll to the Balboa Island Ferry, which will take you to Balboa Island for shopping and delightful food adventures. You are 30 minutes from Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm and upscale shopping at Fashion Island, and only 1½ hours to San Diego. The complex features a private gated entry, elevator access, and a gated parking garage with two private parking spaces for vehicles with a maximum height of 6'2”. Newport Beach STLP#-SLP11877More

This was a beautiful, updated condo located just steps from the beach. Plenty of room for our family. We loved being able to walk to the beach, local restaurants and entertainment. We also enjoyed bike rides up and down the bike/pedestrian friendly paths. Our kids loved the ice cream and snow cones spots near by and we loved the ocean views and quality time. The condo was clean and the owners were great to work with. We highly recommend sandy toes and would definitely come back!

Sandy Toes was as perfect, everything as advertised and more. Upon opening the door, we felt a warm welcome. The kitchen was fully loaded with so many small appliances. There were plenty of linens, towels, beach toys, chairs, umbrellas and bicycles. Ideal location, minutes away from Balboa boardwalk and Newport Pier. A notebook provided helpful tips and details on local activities and eateries. A BBQ on the large balcony was at hand. We enjoyed front row seats of breathtaking sunsets and Xmas Boat Parade Fireworks Show. Jeff and Stephanie added a special touch, a real Christmas tree. It smelled marvelous. Our adult children felt this was a safe place for their young children. Owners were easily accessible for any questions, concerns during our stay. Definitely a place to return.

Laura, We are so glad you and your family enjoyed Christmas at the beach. Newport Beach is a great place to be during Christmas and you were so fortunate to be able to see the outstanding fireworks show put on by the city on the last day of the boat parade. Thank you for the care you took of our condo. We would be glad to have you stay with us again when your travels bring you back to beautiful Newport Beach. Regards, Jeff & Stephanie Mendenhall

We really enjoyed our stay at Sandy Toes Retreat! The condo is beautifully furnished, with many amenities (kitchen, laundry, several TV's, and plenty of supplies). The beach is literally steps away, and you have a great view of the Newport Beach pier. Enjoy your coffee on the terrace while you watch the surfers head out for the day. Great dining options nearby (both dine in and take out). Highly recommended! Our hosts were readily available if we had any questions. We hope to visit again someday!
