Paradise on the Balboa Peninsula

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a 30+ day stay at this fantastic home on the peninsula. This beautiful home has all the amenities you need for your stay at the beach -- beach chairs, beach towels, bikes, umbrellas, body boards, and even a wagon to haul everything to the beach.

The home itself has all that you need for your stay -- completely furnished home, kitchen, and office area. The home is convenient to the beach and the Fun Zone, not to mention a short walk to nearby bars and restaurants.

The roof top terrace is the "icing on the cake". The view of both the ocean and bay are truly fantastic. There is always a nice breeze on the rooftop.

The owner and property manager were a pleasure to work with. They are truly interested in making your stay the best it can be.

We will definitely return to this beautiful home in paradise.

Newport Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week in this home and it was amazing. The home is well taken care of, beautifully decorated, and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The photos don't even do this place justice. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the necessary items to cook and BBQ for the week. The rooftop deck is absolutely amazing. It was the perfect place to send our evenings while the baby was asleep downstairs. The location is perfect, just a few blocks from the pier and you have the beach on one side and the bay on the other side. There was more than enough beach items including chairs, coolers, towels, sand toys, boogie board, bikes and a wagon to tote all the toys around with you. Both the homeowner and the property manager were a pleasure to work with. They are very responsive, friendly and very easy to work with. They answered every question we had and always got back to me in a very timely manner. Lorraine was there to greet us and show us around the house and was very accommodating with our arrival and departure times. We will defiantly be coming back to this home in the future.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home! Location was great, close to the beach and a great view. Everything was clean and new. Easy to work with. I have 2 kids and they loved it also. I didn't need anything for them, more beach stuff than we knew what to do with!

Newport/balboa Fabulous stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and two adult children made a last minute trip to Neport for both business and pleasure. We were trying to find something near to the beach aw well as being accessible to Anaheim Convention Center and Saddleback Church in Lake Forest. This home was a perfect location! Steps to the beach and bay and walking distance to Newport activities. Only a 25-30 minute drive to Lake Forest and Anaheim. Not to mention just a 10 - 15 minute drive to Laguna Beach The house sits on a pretty and quiet street. Laurel, has left nothing out when it comes to providing for her guests. Her home is very clean and comfortable. Two newly decorated bathrooms, comfortable beds, all necessary items for the kitchen & three great bikes that we used each day. One of our favorite parts of the house was the roof top! Beautiful fireplace with comfortable seating and great views. Being so close to the beach was wonderful. We walked each morning and thoroughly enjoyed the excercise. The pier is so close and there are some great little shops and restaurants all within walking distance. I would not hesitate to stay here again for future visits. Laurel was very prompt with her communication and when we arrived (which was 9:30pm) her property manager, Lorraine was there to greet us, show us around and explain how things work. All in all, great trip!!

Perfect family vacation rental.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 enjoyed this vacation rental for 9 days in March. Perfect for families! Literally a block to the sand/boardwalk and a playground on the sand (I can lay in the sand as they play in the waves and even if they wanted to play at the playground). You can hear the waves crashing from the bedrooms as you fall asleep. Easy walk to Newport pier one way or Balboa Pier the other way for restaurants and shops. Warm nights on rooftop deck sipping wine or beer as the kids sleep below. AMAZING!

Wake up, leisurely breakfast and coffee on the rooftop deck, walk to beach, come home for lunch, back out for afternoon session, come home for dinner, kids to bed, relax on rooftop deck. REPEAT!

Thank you Laurel and Lorraine.

Great Rooftop Patio!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two kids and myself stayed at the property for 10 nights in February 2015. The property had all the amenities we needed and was so close to the beach. We enjoyed many late afternoons sitting on the spacious rooftop patio and relaxing. The property was very clean and well looked after. Laurel and Lorraine were both great to work with to arrange the rental and go through all the details of the property. We would definitely recommend this property and look forward to returning in the future.
