About the Property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.25 Baths, (Sleep 5-6)

Beautiful sunsets and awesome panoramic views await you just steps from this Newport Beach vacation home on the Balboa peninsula. This vacation home is the lower unit of a duplex and is one house away from the sand, walking distance from park, basketball court, tennis court, and Newport Pier on the boardwalk.

If you need a larger place, our upstairs (4 bedrooms) may be available some weeks during the Summer: VRBO Listing #852330

This is not the typical vacation rental. The house is clean and comfortable. The lot is 50% larger than normal. If you enjoy music, the property has a state of the art audio / video system. Wireless internet also provided. If, you have small children, the house has been professionally child proofed.

A sliding glass door opens up from the living room to the patio area where you can read and relax while enjoying the ocean breeze on the 600sq foot tiled patio.

If you enjoy eating out, there are 50+ restaurants within walking distance. Our guests are always happy with the accommodations. My favorite activity is sitting on the patio with a newspaper and watching everyone riding, roller blading or just walking by.


In summer, winter, spring, or fall, this NON-SMOKING vacation home is definitely all about location, rest, and relaxation. Step out to the ocean and watch the dolphins swim by or enjoy views of Catalina Island.

Master Bedroom has King bed. Second bedroom has two single beds and a third single pull out (trundle) under the single by the window. In addition, basic starter kitchen, bathroom and laundry supplies are provided. There are no silly extra fees for laundry, cleaning, linens, etc...

The house is professionally cleaned after each guest. In the summer we enjoy opening the windows and letting the ocean breeze roll through the house.

This vacation home includes a carport and a second car can park behind the carport. The property also includes boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels, umbrellas, beach toys, and coolers..

You will be walking distance from great restaurants, live music, and shops in the heart of the peninsula. If you are looking for activities, there are plenty to choose from - walking along the ocean, biking, roller blading, boogie boarding, surfing, sailing, boat rentals, whale watching, trips to Catalina Island, fishing, shopping at Fashion Island or South Coast Plaza and more.

This rental is just 15 minutes from John Wayne Airport, 20 minutes from Disneyland, California Adventure, and a short drive from Los Angeles International Airport, Sea World, San Diego Zoo, Hollywood, Universal Studios, Knotts Berry Farm, Long Beach Aquarium, Queen Mary, Getty Museum, and many other tourist attractions.

Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the check-in time is 1:30 pm and the departure time is 10 am.

Please be advised that this is NOT a party house. My family lives in the other unit.

Have a nice time, use the beach, have a barbeque, get some sun and relax. We hope that you will come stay in our beach house and enjoy all that Newport has to offer.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We are a family of four. I've lived on the penninsula for 21 years and in this house for 11+ years. Each year we rent the upper unit where we live for two weeks while we go on vacation. We usually rent to another family wanting to enjoy the beach.

Why the Owner Chose Balboa Peninsula, Newport Beach, CA, USA:
I've always wanted to live by the ocean. It brings a sense of balance and renewal to everyone who visits. I chose this property because it a 50% wider lot than the normal property, it is a corner lot with a direct ocean view and it is one house to the ocean.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
This property is set up as a home, not a rental. Spices are in the cupboards ready for cooking. No silly extras like paying for laundry. The furniture, carpet and decor and appliances are all setup the way we want to live. We commonly look outside and see dolphins.
