About Joan and Joe Tallman

My husband and I grew up in Southern California and always dreamed of owning a place in Newport Beach. After spending several years working overseas in Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines we returned to fulfill that dream. In 1990 we bought a brand new duplex in Newport and it has become a favorite place for our family and friends to stay.

Joan and Joe Tallman purchased this condo in 1990

Why Joan and Joe Tallman chose Newport Beach

Our place is a 20 minute drive from John Wayne airport, 30 minutes from Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm. It is also within walking distance to the Newport and Balboa Piers as well as great restaurants, shops, and grocery stores, not to mention only 7 houses from the beach. One of our favorite things to do in the afternoon is to walk down the boardwalk and get a frozen banana.

What makes this condo unique

Another favorite past time is to sip our morning coffee on the patio while watching the pods of dolphins and Catalina Island in the distance. The gentle waves made it ideal for swimming, surfing or body surfing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family has been coming here for over 10 years. We have always enjoyed the hospitality of Joan and Joe. The house is a few steps away from the beach without dealing with the congestion and cost of staying on the boardwalk. Every year we find the house to be well maintained and updated constantly. The house had a total redo this year and it is just beautiful!

Amazing rental for families

  • 5 of 5

Home was exceptional for our family. Nice and roomy, immaculate and clean, new amenities, great central location on 27th street, close for kids to walk to beach alone, close to Newport pier and all the shops. Joan is so sweet and prompt to work with.

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed elsewhere in the Newport area and this place is tough to beat. Steps from the beach, within walking distance of restaurants, the grocery store, a movie theater, and one of the best donut shops in the country. The house itself is beautiful and very clean. The kitchen is nicely updated with quality appliances. Beds are comfortable and plenty of towels were provided for our family of seven. A couple of minor maintenance issues did not really affect us. The only other issue, which wasn't a big deal, was the neighbors, particularly those upstairs, were pretty loud on Saturday night and well into Sunday morning. It's a pretty compact neighborhood, so you have to expect to hear and see the neighbors a bit, but if you have light sleeping members of your group you might have to keep some windows closed so they aren't disturbed, particularly on weekends. Joan also promptly returned my deposit after our stay. I highly recommend.

Great property with a great location

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay - we had travelled in from the East coast for a few days so found ourselves awake in the early hours of every morning taking great walks along the beach. Property owners were very responsive. Thank you for a great stay.

Amazing, beautiful and perfectly located beach house

  • 5 of 5

My husband, kids, parents and brother are spending our last night here and I must say we are not ready to go back. This house EXCEEDED our expectations! The owners have answered every question pleasantly. The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful. We will definitely be coming back every year and cannot see ourselves staying anywhere else in Southern California but this home. Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Tallman for making our family vacation perfect with your beautiful and clean home!

Beautiful & relaxing vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy when we arrived to this beautiful beach house in Newport! The look of the house is so adorable. It's so clean & modern inside, we felt at home and comfortable during our stay. We would highly recommend this beach house to anyone looking to get away. The neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful and the beach was only a few steps down the street. We loved waking up in the morning and walking down by the ocean with our coffee. the house had everything you could need during your stay. It was perfect! Thank you joe and Joan for your hospitality and professionalism during our stay! We loved it and would definitely come back again!
