About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bath, parking, patio, free laundry, bicycles, beach chairs, & more

This is the upstairs unit of our COMPLETELY RENOVATED Duplex (downstairs listed separately and you can rent both). Each unit has 3 beds and 2 baths, and at least 1 parking spot in the carport (2) if the downstairs unit is not rented.

Air conditioned and all new everything; furniture, appliances, mattresses, mattress/pillow covers (allergen free), sheets, towels, flooring, lighting, windows, insulation, and more!


Master bedroom has a king size bed with Memory Foam Pad (removable if you like firmer bed)

2nd bedroom has a queen size bed with Memory Foam Pad (removable if you like firmer bed)

3rd bedroom is the largest room with a bunk bed and Futon couch that folds down into a full size sleeper. Bunk has a twin size top mattress and twin size trundle (pulls out from under bed), and a full size bottom mattress - sleeps 4 easily

We also provide a fold up futon foam mattress for the floor (great for small children that want to sleep in-room with parents)

Pack and Play available upon request for baby sleeper.


2 Full Bathrooms complete with pebble floors, big cushy towels, bench for your clothes, 1st bathroom large shower with bench, 2nd bathroom has bath/shower combo. Medicine cabinets and under cabinet storage. Toilet paper, tissues and liquid bath soap provided.


Everything you'll need; dishwasher, gas range/oven, microwave, fridge with ice maker, utensils, pots & pans, dishes, blender, rice cooker/slow cooker, etc...


SMART TV's in every room! Giant 65' in living room! Tons of books and DVDs. Video games (Game Cube). Board games, children's books, toys. Free WIFI of course. :)


The patio on our upper unit has a table with 6 chairs, places to hang your towels, an easy to use BBQ with propane tank (extra in garage in case you need it). Its a great place to spend the end of the day - smelling the ocean breeze or catch some rays during the day.

FREE use of our (HE) front-load washers and dryers in the garage (each unit has dedicated washer/dryer) / brand new! NO COINS - NO WAY! You are our guests! Soap also provided.


37th Street is a GREAT street. It is quieter than most and has less traffic. The curbs are red on our side of the street so no one will be parking in front of our house loading and un-loading (it can be really annoying). We also have less car traffic as it is a one-way street. We are next to the alley on one side of the duplex so we have less neighbor noise as well.

The boardwalk starts on 36th street so we are just out of the way of the traffic of the boardwalk (great for families with small children as the boardwalk can get very crowded), but close enough if you want to hop on the trail to 21st street/Main Street!

Just a quick walk across the street is a little playground with jungle gym, shady grass area for picnics, and swings. Also a great basketball court (bathrooms and water fountain).

Take a morning stroll with your coffee just past the park to Newport Island and look at all of the beautiful water front beach cottages.

Dolphins love 37th street! Highly likely you will see them playing in the waves several times throughout your stay. I think they like the local surfers. :)-

Parking in Newport is often difficult (mostly in summer and weekends) we offer 1 parking spot in carport per unit (possibly 2 if one of units is not rented).

You are welcome to use our beach cruisers (7 adult and 2 kids), boogie boards, surf boards(long boards, Sushi Board), skim boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, pop up tents, beach chairs, wetsuits (children sizes), etc...

Take a look at our downstairs property also a 3 bed/2 bath:

You could rent them both together for a family reunion.

Please note...this is a family vacation house - not a party house. We only rent to people 25 years and older. No EVENTS or PARTIES. If your looking for a party house...this is not the house for you!

Lisa Li purchased this house in 2014

Why Lisa Li chose Newport Beach

This property is 6 houses from the sand and has a beautiful and peaceful beach with great surf for all levels. Its also completely renovated with new furniture, appliances, windows, insulation, beautiful laminate flooring, just steps away from the beginning of the boardwalk but, away from the chaos, next to a lifeguard station, playground, walking distance to great restaurants, bank, grocery store, etc....GREAT LOCATION!!!!

Also have the downstairs unit available if you want to book both units at the same time. This unit is 1000 sq ft and the downstairs unit is a little larger at 1300 sq ft.

Yoga Retreat in Newport Beach

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolute perfection. I hosted 3 yoginis on a yoga retreat to Newport Beach. We had the best time! This house suited our needs in every way. A great kitchen to cook and share meals, plenty of space for the 4 of us, lots of amenities. The added extra special bonus was the bikes! We rode those things everywhere...the bike path along the beach, to restaurants, to the grocery, to the Balboa ferry over to the island. It was a total ball. Lisa is so kind and accommodating. Her recommendations were spot on! We loved the restaurants and the massage therapist that Lisa recommended to us. A quick walk to the beach, lovely neighborhood. Couldn't be happier.

Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. This house was perfect for our two families to get to know each other. All the amenities that came with the house were perfect. No need to pack a bunch of beach necessities, they were all there! Lisa was very accommodating. We will definitely stay here again.

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5

This condo was extremely well kept, so comfortable and was the perfect location! The décor was absolutely adorable. It was equipped with 7 adult beach cruisers that we utilized everyday to ride along the boardwalk, go to the grocery store and grab a bite to eat. Having access to the bikes made the trip ten times better. Lori was super nice and very accommodating. The house had everything you need. It is well stocked with bathroom toiletries and even the kitchen had some essential things you need for cooking. All the beds were very comfortable and each room had its own air conditioning unit. I highly recommend this place for a vacation spot. I hope to come and stay here again.

Fantastic location and great place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in the upstairs unit. The owner is very gracious and so extremely accommodating -- she made our visit so much easier. The upstairs unit has an air conditioner in each room which made it awesomely comfortable. The unit is newly remodeled, very functional and very nice. The bunk room easily fit our four children. The unit was nicely decorated. It was an added bonus that there were 12-13 (I can't remember exactly how many) bikes for the entire house (to share with the downstairs unit), and a washer and a dryer for each unit. Fantastic place -- we'd love to stay there again.

We had a great vacation at the beach and this beautiful beach house added to it. Great location, close to the beach, restaurants and the pier is a short bike ride away. Lisa you have thought of everything! It was so nice to enjoy all the bikes, boards, canopies etc. Thanks again for sharing your beautiful beach house with us. We can't wait to come back.
