Beach House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-7)
I have lived on Seashore Drive for 33 years, including the last 29 as owner of this duplex.
Dave purchased this House in 1989
Why Dave chose West Newport
I moved to Seashore Drive for the world class waves. great beaches, perfect weather, and wonderful salt air. This beach never gets crowded - even in the summer.
What makes this House unique
I love the spectacular Sunsets over the ocean. Great weather all year round - never too hot or too cold. Everything is so close - I can walk or ride my bike to everything that is great about Newport Beach, and anything I need. But the best reason I live at the beach are the great waves in West Newport. 49th Street is steep and hollow, while the waves around 28th-32nd are gentler and roll onto the beach. Good surf can be found all year round within a mile in either direction.

Great location with lots of toys to use!
We loved the location , just steps away from the beach and only 25 min drive to Disneyland if traffic is good. We loved having access to bikes, boogie boards, and beach toys! The only bad thing is it had a musky smell especially bad in the bedroom. I feel like if it had tile instead of carpet it would fix that problem. We would rent this home out again for sure!
Great Location! Great Extras!
This was a great location just off of the beach, a literal stones throw. The accommodations were comfortable and the extra amenities, like the beach toys, bikes and water gear, were great. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Can’t beat the location
We loved our stay in Newport, we visit California a lot but this was our first time in Newport. If you’re looking for the ritzi busy city life look somewhere else. We loved the laid back atmosphere. This house does have a lot of rules but they’re not unreasonable or hard to follow. It was so much fun to walk to the beach every day within minutes & have everything you needed to have the best vacation, some of it was a little worn but that’s because people tend not to take care of things that don’t belong to them. The house had everything we could possibly need except enough TP lol but getting more from Dave upstairs was no issue. There was plenty of room for us even though the title on the add says 3 bedrooms & the pictures look like it has 3 bedrooms the description says 2 bedrooms which is what it has. One of the air mattresses has a hole but there are 2 & we only needed one. It was hard to keep the carpet dry & the apartment does have a musty smell that bothered my allergies a little but I came prepared. The mattress in the master bedroom needs replaced or turned? It was very lumpy & soft at the same time & I like a softer bed. There was food left from previous renters, one of my kids thought it was ours & found one box of cereal had a very large, dead bug in it. The house needs a little tlc & a good dusting. I found another dead bug in the closet while folding all the bedding & there were a LOT of ants so we couldn’t leave even a jar of honey on the counter. There was a lot of bedding and pillows, more than enough & plenty of towels. The internet was horrible, didn’t bother me because um, we’re at the beach! But it might matter to some. It really is a great place & we would stay again because it was just so well supplied with fun things & in the perfect location, I would love to see the carpet changed to tile. My 5yo said his favorite thing was riding “his” bike to the pier. Thank you for providing us with a home for our wonderful vacation.
Stay at the beach
We enjoyed the close proximity to the beach 🏖
My daughters and I had a fantastic time at this property. The proximity to the beach perfect. Our first time on vacation in California couldn't have been better!
Thank you Dave. I would gladly stay at your place again!!
Great place for the price
Awesome location. The New Port Beach and board walk are great. The use of the bikes and boogie boards are an awesome bonus.
The place is a little dated but we'll worth the price. I recommend staying here. Owner Dave is great.
