About Matt Pentecost

I am a real estate broker and manage this property for my family. As a native southern-Calfornian, I love coming to the beach and know that you will too!

Matt Pentecost purchased this apartment in 1973

Why Matt Pentecost chose Newport Beach

This property has belonged to my family for years and it has been my home-away-from-home as I was growing up. We still use the property when it is vacant since it is such a beautiful location with such great proximity to everything and provides all the amenities we could ask for.

What makes this apartment unique

The short walk to the beach has been wonderful as my family has created long-lasting memories of playing in the sand, surfing, and watching the sun set...only to return to a delicious bbq dinner on the patio.

Great location on the penisula. We walked everywhere and enjoyed the cool ocean breeze

  • 5 of 5

We were personally met by the owner, Matt and had great communication. The apartment was clean with a distinct vintage feel. The bed was the most comfortable I ever slept on! Perfect location for small family! Will definitely rent again when I visit OC

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 spent 3 nights at Matt's place. Great location, great price, and even better hospitality from Matt. Matt checked in with us when we arrived and just before we departed to ensure we had every thing we needed to for a relaxing stay and a worry free departure. He even let us use his parking pass which saved us some money and head aches of trying figure out where to park to unload and load. Parking was right out front on the median just a few feet from the front walk way. His apartment was extremely clean and well stocked for everything we needed to enjoy ourselves. I used the internet a little to knock out some work while the kids watched their favorite morning shows on the cable tv. Every thing you need to store your own groceries to make meals for the beach or enjoy it on the patio looking out over the town/bay were available in the kitchen. The local market was just down stairs and over a couple of doors in case you forget to bring something. If you don't feel like cooking Matt has coupons and menus from some of the great tasty local places available. The beach is just a couple doors down and the location on the beach couldn't be better. You walk right out and you are next to the beach bathrooms, post beach showers to wash away the sand, and a life guard station. All things I appreciate since we brought our 3 young children with us. We look forward to staying here again. J,T,M,R, and G Gilbert, AZ.

Great place, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four just returned from Matt's apartment and can't wait to go back. This place has everything you need for a great southern California vacation. Steps to the beach, tons of restaurants and activities within walking distance and an easy drive to Disney. We loved leaving the bedroom windows open at night so we could hear the crashing waves. Plus, Matt is super easy to work with. My wife, two teenage daughters and I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!

Perfect place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a 11 night stay. We have stayed here many times now and plan on staying many more times. Great location. Very clean & comfortable apartment. Right across the street from the bay & the Marina, one house off of the boardwalk. Walking distance to both piers, Fun Zone, Balboa Fairy, restaurants & shops. Everything you need to stay in and cook or grill on the patio overlooking the bay. You will not find a nicer guy than Matt. Can't wait to come back again.
