Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-11)

Our house is located on the Peninsula of Newport Beach. We are approximately halfway between the Newport and Balboa Piers. Right outside our home is the beach, you can cross the boardwalk (sidewalk) and then just walk straight out to the water.We are situated in an ideal spot because we we live in a more quiet area of the Peninsula. We are within walking distance of both piers and just an easy walk to downtown for dinner, games at the Fun Zone, specialty shops and the ferry to go over to Balboa Island. No need to drive anywhere.

Balboa Island is a fabulous place to visit. Once off the ferry (with a car , bicycle or by foot) it's just a short way to the main street of this enchanting island. Loaded with lots of shops and numerous wonderful places for breakfast, lunch or dinner. No visit to the Newport area is complete without a day or two over at Balboa Island.

Our house itself is very unique. We have an upside/down configuration in that our kitchen and dining area is on the second floor so that you can appreciate the spectacular views of the ocean 'from above' while enjoying a long breakfast or BBQ dinner or just even 'cooking' . Speaking of cooking, there is a big gas BBQ on the front porch where it's so delightful to have dinner on the 'barbie' and everyone enjoying cocktails while watching the world go by. The sunsets are spectacular night after night. Each one, better than the last. Outside the upstairs den is a deck with equally great ocean views where you can hide away and read the paper, have a second cup of coffee or just take in the beauty of Newport. The beautiful Pacific Ocean is your front yard . What more could you ask from a vacation to Newport Beach,CA.?????????????????????????????????????????????????

About CHRIS GOETHALS

Our extended family owned 'the beachhouse' for many wonderful years. The eight children in the Goethals family spent each summer on the beach; doing summer reading, taking junior guard training, working at the local food shops, taking sailing lessons, fishing off the piers and just enjoying growing up in Newport. In 2001 when it looked like the house was going to leave our family my five children and myself decided we could not live without it and so we bought this very special home. We spent months putting the house back into it's original condition and have loved the gatherings we've had with all the families since purchasing '104'. It's a very special place, Newport Beach, with many exciting adventures awaiting you. We hope you enjoy the beauty of the Pacific, the charm of Newport Beach and your time at our home.

CHRIS GOETHALS purchased this house in 2001

Why CHRIS GOETHALS chose Balboa Peninsula

We had spent many fabulous summers at 104 East Oceanfront during the time that our extended family owned the property. We chose to own a home in Newport beach because we could not imagine not spending large amounts of time each year at the beach. Newport is a very unique area with so much to do and if you don't want to get up and go there is nothing nicer than just sitting out in front on the beach watching the waves come in and seeing a porpoise or two navigate their way through the breakers.On weekends the ocean is alive with activity. Sail boat races, wave runners, body surfers and all with the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop.

What makes this house unique

The beauty of our property at Newport is that once you park the car the vacation takes care of itself. If the kids want to ride their bikes they can go for miles and miles without getting lost or in trouble. If you have a runner or an avid walker you have come to the right place. Miles in all directions to walk or run. Boating? Wave riding? Para-sailing? Canoeing?Have you ever traveled over to Catalina Island? Where can you have all this within walking distance? Suppose they are all off doing 'their thing'. No Problem, sit out on the front patio, enjoy the people passing by on foot, on roller blade, on pedaled surrey. If you are a people watcher, as I am, you've come to the right place. Want serenity ? Then just walk out to the beach and watch the activities out in the ocean. It's just as close to perfect as you can imagine.

And if that's not enough information add these places :

Hollywood and downtown LA, just one hour away.

Fashion Island for shopping, South Coast Plaza, Bowers Museum, Discovery Science Center, Knott's Berry Farm, Angel Stadium, The Pond are all less than 30 minutes from you at Newport Beach!

Great location, great owner!

  • 5 of 5

The things we enjoyed most about our stay in this home was being right on the beach and the roomy table on the patio. Every night we'd eat dinner on the patio then play games on the beach until the sun went down. The owner is fabulous to work with, every question we asked was answered quickly, we could not have asked for a better owner/renter relationship. Being close to the Fun Zone and Pier were highlights and facilitated numerous walks with a fun destination.

Wonderful family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Great stay! Love being able to watch the kids playing on the sand while preparing meals in the kitchen or bbq in the yard! 3min walk to the coffee shop and Italian deli. I have rented a few vacation rental houses over the years, this is hands down the most well stock kitchen I have ever stay in! The deli is also a small convenient store that open late. With 7 kids (2 babies) in our party, it was nice to be able to prepare multiple meals at home. 4adults 5 kids sleep very comfortably (the 2 babies slept in pack n play). Nice easy walks to both piers.

Tip: "Amazon Now" delivery is a great help too!

Great location on the sand!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a perfect house for our yearly girls weekend! We had a group of 8 women and the house was plenty big and very comfortable. The front patio is ideal for hanging out, playing games, enjoying the sunshine and sunsets and interacting with people passing by. This house is just a couple minute walk to the Balboa pier and fun zone with tons of amenities. The house was so comfortable with unbeatable views, we found little reason to venture out. Morning coffee with views and a walk on the beach were wonderful! The owner was very responsive and accommodating.
