About the Property

We are not renting but please enjoy coastal beauty via my fine art photography.

For the past decade, we have rented to many people who wanted to come to Newport Beach and stay. For anybody wanting to take a vacation, staying at a hotel for a week, a month, 3 months is not feasible due to pricing. Yes, we all travel and a hotel seems logical for 1-2 nights. As well, families want to stay in a home TOGETHER, have parking, a BBQ, no loud neighbors above and the hassles of a hotel.
That said, not renting anymore.
BUT.... now I'll use this site until it expires to show and sell my fine art photographic prints. Take the time to peruse and take a gander at my work. Great prices. Take a look at my web site and see if any catches your eyes. I hope you will find something that will make a great memory.
Sincerely, Alan Huestis Studio 404

About: My name is Alan Huestis, am a friend of the owner whom I grew up with in area. I manage this property and others and love providing guests with a wonderful time and making their stay a fun one. I surfed this area my entire youth before venturing off to exotic places for waves. The Balboa Peninsula is a classic area of Newport and it simply has a wonderful feel to it. The reviews say it all about what I provide my guests. Take a look and hope you can stay awhile at the Nickey Beach House!

Why Balboa Peninsula, Newport Beach, CA, USA:
Great place in a quiet neighborhood. E-mail me or call me at 541-390-7126 with any questions you might have . House is not a fancy posh Balboa house.... rather a classic and clean Balboa Peninsula cottage that is perfect for a wonderful relaxing stay in Newport. If you want hustle and bustle.. stay along the boardwalk. If you want to enjoy the hustle and bustle during the day, then come back to a quiet and cozy neighborhood... THIS IS THE PLACE!!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Close to a very nice UNCROWDED stretch of beach- just 2 blocks from the Wedge and back bay, a couple of parks and a public pier. Very quaint beach cottage style home and in a very nice neighborhood. FREE off street parking, a novelty in Newport!
