Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

If you wish to offer to exchange your main residence for ours, welcome to our Monterey Ranch style home. From the interior of our home, or from our spacious deck, you may enjoy sunset, ocean, city light, and Santa Catalina Island views.

We are offering our Main Residence. It is our only home.
Please do not offer just your Holiday or Vacation home.

Corona del Mar is a coastal community within the City of Newport Beach, California.

Our home is comfortable for up to five or six adults.
Our car has only five adult seat belts.

The floor plan of 2532 square feet allows togetherness or privacy.
The master bedroom has a California King bed (72x84 inches) and an ensuite bathroom with 2 wash basins, 1 toilet, and 1 shower over sunken bath tub.
The guest bedroom has a Queen bed (60x80 inches) and an ensuite bathroom with 2 wash basins, 1 toilet, and 1 shower over bath tub. This bathroom can also be accessed through a hallway door.
The sewing room/bedroom has a single (33x77 inches) bed with a pull out/up (31x74 inches) bed that can be separated or locked together for a 64 inch wide bed.
There is a half bath with 1 wash basin and 1 toilet.

Newport Beach is home to a large selection of iconic sporting, cultural, and community events throughout the year. Its beaches and picturesque coastline play host to such annual events such as the Newport Beach Sandcastle Competition, Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade, the Newport to Ensenada Yacht Race, Newport Beach Film Festival, and Taste of Newport.

Walk 25 minutes to Corona del Mar State Beach. Drive to Crystal Cove State Beach in under 15 minutes or Huntington State Beach in 20 minutes. City beaches are 20 minutes. Watch the crazy surfers compete at The Wedge or the Professional Surf competitions at Huntington City Beach.

We are located 20 miles from Disneyland, 45 miles from Los Angeles and 85 miles from San Diego. We recommend staying over multiple nights in San Diego, or even better to find an exchange (it is very worthwhile).

Access to several airports is easy. The largest one is Los Angeles International (LAX-45 miles = minimum 1 hr drive) which requires much earlier check-in and costly transit from home. The nearest is Santa Ana/Orange County/John Wayne (SNA-5 miles = minimum 13 minutes) with a much shorter check-in and less expensive transit. From baggage-claim at SNA to home is less than half an hour. This is one great reason to book SNA if you must make a stop at any other airport in the USA on the way to/from your home.

Our house book has information to help you find most anything. Large and small appliances have information booklets in the kitchen. We are always happy to answer questions about if we have something, or where to find it.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Our neighborhood is central to most everything.

Walk to a nice supermarket, a drug store, a pizza parlor, etc.

For those who like to walk, jog, or hike, just step out the door for city or country wildlands.

Shopping at Newport Beach Fashion Island is a beautiful outdoor Mall just a short walk away. Or drive if you plan to buy much.

The large pool is shared by our Association of 51 homes and is heated to over 80 degrees Fahrenheit from about Easter to Halloween. A three minute walk will get you to the gate. There are a men's and a women's restrooms. There is an outdoor shower to remove any sand if you have just come from the beach.

Across from the entry to our neighborhood, the City of Newport Beach has really good tennis courts. We have no tennis rackets.
Next to the tennis courts are two lawn bowling greens. We have no bowls.

A public bus traverses the Pacific Coast Highway from Long Beach to San Clemente. The transportation center is about a 20 minute walk from our home.

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Many free or nearly free sights and activities are nearby. Walk wild lands, beaches, and shopping centers.

Visitors are surprised at the great number of beautiful old cars, and luxury new cars driving around our area. A Tesla dealer and a Lincoln dealer are a walk away in Fashion Island.

Almost unlimited ethnic food choices in markets and restaurants are available.

Surprising everybody, sunny July 2015 brought 1/2 inch of rain for the first time in 30 years. The weather is nice enough to participate in year round outdoor activities. In the Winter, sometimes snow is available 1.5 hours away. Some people surf in the morning, ski at noon, and return to surf in the afternoon. D's brother used to do this driving her convertible between.

Our City offers many classes year-round for stand-up paddle, surfing, tennis, etc.

If you want to save money, you might make the 20 minute walk to the beautiful outdoor Newport Beach Fashion Island mall. If you want to go shopping, then take the car. Parking is free.

Nearby Fashion Island is our Newport Beach Central Library and its surrounding Corona del Mar Plaza boutique mall = Sprinkles cupcakes, Tommy Bahamas, Brighton, etc. The library facade was in the movie, "Beaches" as the hotel entrance.

The library is open 7 days and offers many free resources.

Walk around the Fashion Island business buildings and library to see many notable, or not, sculptures.
