Try Marriott's Newport Coast Villas. It was the site that was supposed to be the CA DVC way back when. It is a timeshare like DVC and very nice and spacious. All units are 2 bed/2 bath. Nice pools. Close to beaches and shopping. Rent directly from Marriott or get better prices by renting through an owner at the resort.

any idea on how to rent from an owner

I've rented from owners there twice. You can go through some owner rental sites like www.tugbbs.com/forums (click on Classified Ads in the upper right), www.redweek.com, or www.myresortnetwork.com. It depends on what week you are looking for. If you know for sure, I can try and help you find an owner to rent from.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Costa Mesa last month and it was great. It was only a 10 min. drive to the Newport Pier. We stayed the day in Newport and it was great.

Huntington Beach was my fav place/beach we visited on our CA trip two years ago! I'd say to stay there...but the other two places are all so close that you can't go wrong at any of them!!!

The Hyatt Regency at Newport is a great hotel and is close to the main area of Newport Beach, Bilboa Island and Fashion Island Mall (for shopping).

I also stayed at the Marriott Newport Coast villas; it was wonderful and I'd stay there again in a heartbeat. I reserved it through Marriott.com for something like $250 a night.
