About the property

2 units each has 2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4-5 or 8-10

Newly remodeled duplex each unit having 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. Excellent location. Set blocks away from noisy Balboa Boulevard yet close to the picturesque bay with boats sailing by. The Bay beach is a perfect place for small children to play and close to a small quaint boardwalk that winds around the bay. Rent one unit or both. The Duplex is steps to the bay and 2 blocks to the beach with great views of Bay Island and Harbor Island from the upstairs unit porch. Close to the Pavillion, fun zone and restaurants.

It's a premiere place to relax or a day filled with water sports, biking, sight seeing and sun. Nestled in the heart of Newport close to great shopping, dining and entertainment.

For our guests we have provided beach chairs and umbrellas as well as boogie boards and beach accessories. Sleeps 4 comfortably (5 max with sleeper sofa) in each unit.

Why The Owner chose Newport Beach

ALWAYS CHECK FOR AVAILABILITY WITH OWNER. SINCE 2 UNITS CALENDAR NOT ALWAYS ACCURATE...LOOKS BLOCKED BUT ACTUALLY AVAILABLE. This property is unique since there is only a small group of homes in the Bay area neighborhood. It's location is very close to both the bay (few doors away) and the beach is 1-2 blocks away. This leaves many activities to do whether it is at the bay or beach along with many restaurants and shops that are within walking distance.

There is also a family atmosphere and seems to be more relaxing and quieter than the rowdy pier/ beach boardwalk area.

Birthday beach weekend

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect size, in the perfect location for a surprise bday getaway for my boyfriend's birthday! It was walking distance to just about all our destinations for a fun filled, yet relaxing weekend. It offered great space outdoor to host a small bar-b-que party with a few friends/family! The owner Anita, was SO helpful and easy going that it made everything that much better to enjoy! Great ambiance and supplies at the house (paper plates, laundry detergent, great supply of towels, kitchen stuff, blankets, pillows, etc. It's all the "little" things that matter most with stays like these and I am happy with the turnout of the weekend. Thank you Anita! We treated it like our own home and hope to be able to stay here again. What a pleasure!

Immaculate, adorable and the best location

  • 4 of 5

The upper unit was very compact, but very nicely decorated and well laid out for our family of four. There is plenty of light and breeze and the French doors and balcony really opened up the living space. The kitchen is new, elegant and reasonably appointed - we easily made simple meals. Everything was sparkling and felt new. There's a small market and coffee/breakfast cafe within walking distance as is the beach, the Balboa ferry and the Fun Zone. It was a busy Fourth of July weekend and the lower unit was occupied. Our downstairs neighbors were very polite and accommodating, but it was completely unrealistic to think that we could use the bbq and lower patio - it's really integrated into the downstairs. Also, there's no air conditioning, which was only uncomfortable one night, but keeping the windows open also lets in lots of neighborhood noise. Part of the charm of the Balboa Peninsula! I would completely recommend this charming flat to my friends.

Quiet location

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, quiet and excellent location between bay and ocean side; Away from business of traffic and congestion. Kitchen well stocked with utensils, serving and cooking items, but bare pantry- will need to buy all of your own spices, etc. Close to kayak and bike rentals. Responsive host, however was inflexible re: cancellation for family emergency. Otherwise, would definately stay there again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Colleen. So glad you were able to work out your "family emergency" less than 48 hours prior to check in, on a busy holiday weekend. I would love to be more flexible on that but it is practically impossible to re book on such a short notice. Thank you for understanding. As far as the bare pantry, I stock all the basic supplies such as coffee, tea, sugar, salt, pepper and a number of spices. I would advise bringing extra if you are planning extra cooking. Glad you enjoyed your stay!

Great location and nicely furnished property!

  • 4 of 5

Clean, well furnished. Could not get internet connection to work despite help from the owner. No other negatives. Comfortable beds, nice space for the three people we had in our group. Could have had a few more wine glasses. Really nice location---a few houses from the bay and about 2 blocks to the beach, which was deserted in December. Of course beautiful weather helps and few people make for an enjoyable get-away. I would highly recommend this property to others. We are looking forward to more weekends here!

Rode the Balboa Ferry to Balboa Island to look at Christmas lights! Really stellar! Quaint, romantic, and wonderful time. Highly recommend taking advantage of the nearby ferris wheel and bay activities.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, Bob. So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at The Beach House. I contacted Time Warner, our cable and internet provider at the time and they did confirm there was an outage in the area for the internet. Thank you and hope you can visit again!

Newport Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely comfortable, clean, bright, and quiet upstairs unit. There are lots of windows, to make it really bright and it was a bonus to have our own balcony for morning coffee. The beds were super comfortable, and plenty of hot water for showers. Booking was hassle free. The owner Anita was very easy to work with and responded promptly by email and phone. The only drawback is that it is an upstairs unit which means that your patio table is downstairs so in the summer season I would probably prefer the downstairs unit. We had a great time.
