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 Balboa Peninsula

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.

Perfect beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

This quaint beach house was the perfect venue for our family beach vacation! The location is ideal - steps from the ocean but also within an easy walk to great restaurants and other attractions. The house is attractively decorated with very comfortable furnishings. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of room for eveyone to gather round the table for a home cooked meal. Fresh fish from the Dory Fishing Fleet Market was our favorite! The owners clearly have an eye for details and they didn't miss a thing. We couldn't have been more pleased with this choice!

Great location, and a beautiful quaint house.

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for my family to celebrate my wife's retirement. The 10 of us fit very well into the house. Having the two car garage for parking was a big plus! Luckily, the public lot (fee based) is just across the boardwalk. So I was able to park my large truck there while family used the garage. It all worked out perfect! The owners are fantastic! I'm hoping to rent it in the future!

Loved My Stay

  • 5 of 5

Love the tile floors and that they are so EZ to sweep clean from sand carried in on the bottom of shoes, boogie boards, beach chairs, towels, etc. Everything is so close: Food, bike rentals, Newport & Balboa piers, Arcade, etc. Owners are Really Nice - 2nd time i've stayed here :)

Family gathering at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathered here for a week. This house is so welcoming. If we go back to Newport Beach again we would definitely stay at this house. During the day family members went where they wanted too. Then at night all of us sat out on the front patio and talked and talked. It was a wonderful time. Our hosts were wonderful and really made us feel welcome.
