About the property

Private 3 bd 2 bath lower unit, 2 houses from sand. 2 bikes to cruise Newport!

This property is the perfect spot to set up camp for a week at the beach. It is about 100 steps to the sand. It is in the perfect location along this little strand of coast to utilize all the surrounding piers. It is a about a mile walk down to the Newport pier. Close enough to walk or bike to the shops and restaurants, but far enough to escape the parking lots that bring big crowds. The unit includes a master bedroom with a queen bed and a private bathroom. A second bedroom with a queen bed and a third bedroom with a full over full bunk bed that has a single trundle pull out. It has a second full shared bathroom in the hall. When you enter the property it has an open concept living area with a couch and a dining table so that everyone can hang out in the same space. All of the bedrooms as well as the living area have large flat screen TVs on the wall. The kitchen is stocked with everything you would need to eat in. It also has a coffee maker, toaster and microwave. There is a patio out back with a sitting area, a BBQ and a small fire pit. This unit has enough room to park 2 cars. (one in the garage and one in the driveway.) Street parking can be hard to find so this reserved space makes a big difference! There are beach chairs, sand toys, umbrellas and a washer/dryer in the garage. We do our best to make this home feel special. We keep everything well maintained and the style up to date. All appliances are stainless steel and the counter tops are granite. We are constantly making improvements to make it feel like a home away from home. We are happy to help with any part of your vacation we can, from planning to restaurant suggestions to responding to maintenance calls. We think you will love it here as much as we do!

About stephanie larson

My family and I love to travel. We enjoy seeing new places, although we also tend to revisit favorites. All four of us are fish and could spend all day in the sun and water. Unfortunately, school and work like to get in the way!

stephanie larson purchased this condo in 2012

Why stephanie larson chose Newport Beach

After going on vacation in Newport Beach we were all hooked. We knew this was some place we wanted to visit every summer with the kids and eventually the grandkids. When we found this property it felt like a perfect fit. We like that it is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood and we can go back and forth from the house to the beach easily. Our walks to the pier together every morning to look for shells and pick up a coffee (and the uninterrupted talks that go with that) are priceless to me.

What makes this condo unique

It is so awesome to be able to park the car and get out and exercise. During our beach week we take long walks on the beach, ride bikes, swim, paddle board and kayak. For us it is less than an hour away from our home but feels like a world away without all of the everyday distractions. It is so great being near 50th. You miss the traffic and crowds that come with being closer to the pier and the parking lots. This downstairs unit stays hidden from the street and sun and feels very quiet and private. It also tends to stay pretty cool in the summer heat. We love it!!

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

My family recently stayed here over the Christmas week and it was everything we hoped for and more. There were 9 of us staying here and while it was close quarters with so many adults and a toddler we never felt like there wasn't enough room. We loved how close we were to the beach and had everything we needed. Thanks for an amazing experience! We would definitely stay here again!

The property was just as expected. Stephanie was very thorough making arrival and departure seamless. Stephanie's suggestions of 'favorite things was appreciated (Dory's Deli was terrific). The location and distance to the sand was amazing. We are so glad we found this rental!

Amazing Fall Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our Thanksgiving stay in this home was wonderful!! We were able to order a pre-cooked turkey from the Pavilions down the street and cook our sides in the cute kitchen! The option to do this made our trip even more amazing! The home was perfect for us to enjoy the beach within steps away, walks on the Pier, shopping, deep sea fishing and even Knotts Berry Farm! The home is so adorable decorated, room for all of us and the back yard was awesome for s'mores and story telling! I can't forget to mention the bikes, beach toys, chairs that we were able to use! And even an outside shower to wash off before coming in, such a smart idea too! Only thing is wish we could have stayed longer! Stephanie THANK YOU for everything!! We LOVED it!! We would definitely book again here!! Such an AMAZING home for a vacation!!

Newport Beach

This property is located one mile from the Newport Pier. It is close enough to walk down to the shops and restaurants, but far enough away to escape the most crowded part of the beach when you want to lay out and relax. You can ride a bike further down another 10 minutes or so to visit the arcade at the balboa fun zone or cross on the ferry for more food and shops on balboa Island. There is a little water museum there with a tide pool touch table for little kids. It also is the place to go if you are interested in booking whale watching trips, harbor cruises or want to take the ferry across to Catalina Island for the day. You can also rent kayaks, paddle boards wave runners etc. We like to rent the little electric duffy boats and cruise the bay with snacks and a glass of wine. If you ride in the opposite direction from the house you are about a 25 minute ride from all that Huntington pier area has to offer. I love the central location west Newport offers. Of course the house is also about 20 minutes away from big attractions such as Disneyland and Angel Stadium. My kids enjoy the Santa Ana Zoo which is small but nice. They also enjoyed the discovery cube hands on museum when they were little. Newport Dunes is a campground down the street a few miles that has set up a nice safe cove that is great for families. the have a little water park area set up during the summer and rent out paddle boats and things in a safe easy to watch area. They charge a small fee per car to enter for the day. Fashion Island is a nice outdoor mall that offers shopping, food and a nice movie theater. The waves at Newport are great for swimming, surfing and building sand castles. If you are interested in tide pools or snorkeling head over to Laguna Beach. The downtown area also has nice shopping and restaurants. We like to go to the Montage hotel for drinks. Parking can be tricky so we usually valet at the hotel even though it is pricey. It has an amazing view. There is a nice and expensive restaurant in the hotel but we usual opt for the cheaper more casual bar and restaurant by the pool. From there you can walk on a sidewalk along the beach or access the white sand by going down the stairs. While there is a lot to do in Southern California, half the time we park our car and dont use it at all. We go from the beach to the house to the beach and walk to dinner.
