About the property

4 Bedroom, (2) 3/4 Bath House On The Boardwalk With Views Of The Sand And Ocean.

Imagine stepping outside the patio door of your own authentic four bedroom beach house onto one of the finest beaches in Southern California, Newport Beach. Think of your family and friends having fun barbecuing on your patio, walking barefoot on the white sand beach, hearing the sound of the surf, getting re-acquainted with the smell of the ocean breeze, roasting hot dogs and making s'mores at the Newport Beach fire pits, watching the gorgeous sunsets behind Catalina Island. For family fun, enjoy playing games, spending time on the wireless internet, watching a 55'' HD TV, watching your favorite movie on a Blu Ray DVD or putting together puzzles.

At Your Home on the Beach, you can walk, ride a 'Segway' or bicycle down the oceanfront boardwalk, take a cruise to Catalina Island, take the ferry to Balboa Island, rent a boat in Balboa Bay, take a deep sea fishing trip, enjoy wonderful shopping in the quaint shops, and eat out at fabulous restaurants. All this is within three blocks of your home! There's plenty to do, or not do, it's your choice, it's your beach house!

Our beach house is a private, single story, 4 bedroom, (2) 3/4 bath beach house located on the Balboa Peninsula near the Balboa Pier. Two bedrooms have queen beds and 2 bedrooms have twins. There are two rollaway beds also.

We have a detached 2 car garage with parking for a 3rd car parallel to the closed garage door. We have a washer and dryer located in this garage. They are operated by quarters. Laundry soap is not provided.

We start you off with one role of toilet paper for each bathroom and one roll of paper towels. All cleaning supplies including automatic dishwashing soap are provided. For your convenience, all linens are supplied and folded on each bed. You bring your own personal products and laundry soap.

The City of Newport Beach parking lot is nearby which provides additional parking for your guests. As is often said, 'nobody knows how many friends you have until you have a beach house'.

Newport Beach offers everything you need and anything you could want. With its close proximity to John Wayne/Orange County Airport, the city is easily accessible to all visitors. Superb golfing, world class shopping, yachting and a uniquely California sophistication, make Newport Beach an inspiring destination.

Take a drive in your car to all of the local places to visit such as Disneyland, Lego Land, Knott's Berry Farm, Universal Studios, the Rose Bowl, The Tournament of Roses Parade, the Long Beach Aquarium, Sea World, the San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park. If shopping is your joy, visit South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa or the upscale Fashion Island in Newport Beach.

About James and Shelly Petrilli, Ward and Ann Brien

We grew up in southern California with teen-age memories of Spring Break at 'Bal'.

Our family purchased this beach house in 1988 with the idea of our generations working together and continuing to build more memories at 'BALBOA'.

James and Shelly Petrilli, Ward and Ann Brien purchased this house in 1988

Why James and Shelly Petrilli, Ward and Ann Brien chose Newport Beach

We live in Newport Beach 15 minutes from Your Home on the Beach. We believe in handling the renovation and cleaning ourselves rather than leaving it to a property management real estate firm. No one cares for your property like the owner.

What makes this house unique

This oceanfront beach house, we believe, is the only PRIVATE, single story 4 bedroom house that sleeps 8-10 with a 2 car garage, and a large walled in patio near so many attractions. This is a REAL beach house built in 1938 with modern amenities. Our guests enjoy the history and ambience of our beach house.

Review of our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We used the little house for a family reunion. Over the weeks approx 20 people came and went. We had three families from Las Vegas, One family from Temple City, our daughter from San Dimas, our son and his husband from Claremont and ourselves from Covina. The house was cozy and yet large enough to accomodate all of those people on and off over the week. The owners were very accomodating. Even though we had to bring things down with us there was a coffee pot, washer & dryer, bath towels ( we had to supply our own beach towels and sheets & blankets. It was just a great place for all of us to renew our family ties.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Accompanied by kids and grandkids this home and location was perfect for all ages! Easy access to sand, ocean, fun zone, bikes, park, fire pits...The only time we left all week was to head to Disneyland. Doesn't get much better than when you can truly relax. The owners and their family are helpful and quick to respond with any questions I had.

Perfect Family Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for us. We have 3 small children and this home was perfect: NOT pristine and perfect that you feel like you have to tip-toe around to prevent from breaking something, but WAS comfortable, cozy and could handle the wear and tear of my 3 children without fault. It has a rustic beach style that flows with the 1900's craftsman look of the home. Beds were cozy, plenty of extra blankets and bath towels provided. Located right on the boardwalk which was so nice to be able to walk out the front door, through the gate and simply stroll out with the kids in the stroller to the park close by or head straight to the beach. Ward was above and beyond accommodating, ensuring we arrived safely, that things were going well, and that check out was easy. We already booked with them again next year and hope to keep it a tradition to keep coming back to this home in the future. Can't beat the location, price, and graciousness of the landlords who own this adorable home.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this house and its location. We had no reason to ever drive anywhere as we could walk or bike to where ever we went. Beach is so nice and the patio was perfect... We will be back😀!

Everything we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

Having grown up on the Balboa peninsula, I wanted to stay in an authentic, classic beach house similar to the house I grew up in. Your Home on the Beach was just that! Our four children, their three spouses and our three grandchildren stayed here with us and we were very comfortable. There was parking for our three cars which was very nice. We never worried about parking and with most activities we wanted within walking distance it was great. Ward was excellent to work with from beginning to end. He is a very warm and generous man who truly wants your stay to be memorable and fun. Being at the beach where I grew up and sharing it now with my grandkids was as close to heaven as possible! We had a really wonderful time. Biking, disc golfing, ferry rides, walks and beach time filled our days not to mention the Laguna Sawdust Festival, Orange County Swapmeet and of course Disneyland! I would not hesitate to stay here again.
