December 17, 2022

No matter if you’re traveling solo, with friends or with kids, Newport Beach boasts a variety of places to stay. But before you start hunting for hotel deals, we’ve pieced together a list of our favorite vacation rentals in Newport Beach for every type of traveler. It’s time to pack your bags!

For the Out-of-State Travelers

Beach House Rental

Looking to trade in your skis for a dose of vitamin sea this winter? Newport Beach’s variety of beach house rentals offers a special experience for out-of-state travelers. And while resorts offer perks like maid service and pool access, a vacation rental comes with its own advantages, such as multiple bedrooms, indoor and outdoor spaces and a sense of privacy. Live the island life with a rental on the charming Balboa Island, or enjoy beach access and some of the best nightlife in Orange County with a beach house on the Balboa Peninsula!

For the Families

Crystal Cove Beach Cottages

Newport Beach has a little something for everyone, especially those traveling with kids. The Crystal Cove Beach Cottages may not have the amenities of a five-star resort, but these quaint bungalows offer an oceanfront escape for those in search of some fun in the sun. Each of the 24 cottages features a full-sized kitchen, common sitting room and deck with views of the ocean and has been beautifully restored to preserve its original charm. And after a day of sun and surf, families can experience the Crystal Cove State Park Historic District, where they can enjoy a meal on the sand at The Beachcomber or rent a fire pit for a cozy evening on the sand.

For the Couples

Lido House Cottages

Chic, luxurious and spacious, Lido House’s coastal cottages offer a unique beach house experience that any couple will love. Each of the five cottages at Lido House is beautifully designed to celebrate the “barefoot luxury” lifestyle of Newport Beach. Enjoy personal services such as in-cottage spa treatments, curated shopping experiences and top-notch hotel amenities like on-site dining, pool access, Lido Limo shuttle service, beach equipment rentals and more. Your romantic escape by the sea awaits!

For the Work-From-Home Warriors

Marriott’s Newport Coast Villas

Live like a Newport Beach local in one of Marriott’s Newport Coast Villas. These Tuscan-inspired condos offer everything you need to work from “home” comfortably. You’ll love the spacious two-bedroom, two-bathroom layout of each villa and the access you’ll get to amenities like three outdoor pools, a state-of-the-art fitness center, tennis and basketball courts and a putting green. And once you’ve packed in a day’s worth of work and an afternoon of activities, retreat to your spacious villa, which comes equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi, a full kitchen, a washer and dryer and a furnished balcony. It’s safe to say you’ll want to stay awhile.

For the Millenials
