About Lauri Lewis

My husband, two sons and I have been coming to Newport Beach for a week of each summer for the past 24 years. Of all the southern California beaches, it has offered everything our family has needed from when our kids were toddlers to now as teenagers. We decided to acquire a nice beach home to use as a rental property to help pay the mortgage and to use for our weekly summer vacation. The property was a year round home to a nice retired couple who kept the unit in spectacular condition. It is unlike many of the substandard rentals in the area which are rented to college students, have coin-op washer/dryers and require you to bring your own linens. We continue to maintain it at a high standard. We hope to help make your Southern California beach vacation pleasurable and relaxing.

Lauri Lewis purchased this house in 2008

Why Lauri Lewis chose Balboa Peninsula

This property is located within walking distance to restaurants, stores, parks, entertainment and most of all, steps to the beach.

What makes this house unique

Ample 2 car garages for both the upper and lower units with electric garage doors as well as space to secure bicycles.

We thoroughly enjoyed this remodeled beach home. It was clean and fully stocked with everything we needed. My grand children loved, loved, loved the beach that was several blocks away but close enough for an easy stroll. The 40 to 44th street beach is a safe, family beach with lots of friendly people. Lauri was so helpful and extremely easy to work with.

Great Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed this clean, spacious and updated beach house (upper level).

Just far enough from the beach to avoid the noise, parking and traffic issues. 2 car garage huge benefit.

Owner was professional, prompt and great to work with.

We'll Be Back!!!

Excellant Rental!

  • 5 of 5

I waited until almost the last minute to find a beach house for the 4th of July weekend for my family and I was lucky enough to find Lauri and her beautiful home! The house is amazing and has everything you will ever need for the perfect vacation! All 7 of us (and 2 toddlers) had the best time! The house is close to everything, and is well stocked with everything you would need. We had an extra car and Lauri was nice enough to save us a parking spot before we got there! Definitely want to rent from her again1 Thanks Lauri!

Beach trip

  • 5 of 5

We booked a last minute trip to the beach and this place was awesome. We spent a week there and had everything we needed. The location is great , just a short block to the beach. We had everything we needed for the beach(towels,chairs,umbrella and cooler). The place is a short Uber ride from the airport but the place has garage parking which is a plus if you need it. We enjoyed the beach bikes and even took a long ride to Huntington Beach for the day. There is a store a short walk away and it is close to lots of places to eat. Make sure you try chronic tacos for breakfast,lunch or dinner. Laurie was quick to respond and made sure we had everything we needed. We will be back next year for sure.

Entire Family Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year here and we will definitely be back next year. Unit was spotless and ready on time. It was well stocked with kitchen utensils and small appliances. There were also a great assortment of BBQ utensils, linens and towels. My family enjoyed the variety of beach bikes, beach toys, sand chairs and even a little shovel to dig a hole for our umbrellas. Everything is there. The grocery store is about 5 minutes away by car and this makes packing for the trip quick and convenient. The garage is a bonus because parking is a bit unpredictable. LOL! The owner is positively amazing; quick to respond, addresses every question or concern in a timely fashion and makes you feel like family. We are sad to leave and immediately start looking forward to next year. It was a relaxing, fun, family dream vacation. Thank you Lauri!

Excellent location. Awesome rental. This was our first vacation with the entire family and we were sad to leave. We had a fabulous time. Everything you need is at the rental and everything else is within walking distance. Property was spotless and every need was met. We absolutely loved this rental and Laurie is the best. She will make sure your every needs are accommodated. This was definitely our home away from home. We will be back Laurie!
