About stephanie larson

We are a family of 4 that loves to travel. All of us love outdoor activities especially in the water. We love Newport beach and all that it has to offer.

stephanie larson purchased this house in 2012

Why stephanie larson chose Newport Beach

We love to go to Newport and hang out at the beach. We wanted some place we could visit every summer and build family memories. It was important to find some place that was in a great location and we could count on being clean and well maintained. I think we found it!!

What makes this house unique

We love this location! We are able to ride all the way to the Wedge at the tip of Balboa in one direction or ride to Huntington beach if we go the other direction. Being away from the pier, parking lot and boardwalk gives us a little more peace and quiet and privacy. Being near 51st keeps us from getting caught up in the traffic that goes along with being further down the peninsula. When we walked into the main room with the high ceilings we knew this was the place. The whole family can hang out together with out feeling squished!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Newport Beach and can not wait to come back! House was perfect! There was not a hair dryer in the house and the owner had one there right away! The only issue was 2 washcloths. With 4 girls in the house. Lol. The house is over a mile from town which is fine if you have enough bikes or a car. We would definitely stay here again!

Lovely home, awesome experience

  • 5 of 5

The owner of the home was communicative and amazingly accommodating. The house itself was beautiful and clean with more amenities that I've seen compared to other beach homes. Rent with confidence!

Great Home in Newport Beach. Perfect for a family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this home! It was everything that we expected. We were on the 2nd floor, which was perfect because we had 3 young children that could go outside on the balcony. There was plenty of space to relax and not feel crowded.

The amenities in the garage made it nice too. Plenty of beach chairs, toys and bikes. I was going to step off how close it really was to the beach! Is it really 100 steps? Pretty Close.

Stephanie the owner is quick to respond if you have any questions and great to work with.

Hope to stay there again soon.

Comfortable home super close to beach!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house with another family (4 adults, 3 kids total). The kids loved the bunk room and the adult bedrooms were very comfortable! The bathrooms were clean and updated and the kitchen was perfect - all major needs supplied by owners. We even used the patio grill one night! The home is literally 30 seconds from the sand and the home is located about 1.25 miles from the pier - perfect location!! We will definitely stay here again!!!

Newport Beach

This property is situated right in the the Newport Beach on the water. This location is ideal for traveling south towards Newport Pier, Balboa Pier, Balboa Island or The Fun Zone. You can also travel North towards Huntington Pier. We love this location because it is an easy bike ride to any of these locations. We enjoy taking out kayaks and electric Duffy boats on the bay. It is nice to rent them near sunset and take out cheese, crackers and wine to enjoy on the hour cruise. The kids also like to spend a day at Newport Dunes. This is a camp ground with a protected swimming cove. It rents out fun water toys like kayaks and paddle boats and also offers a water playground with slides and trampolines. You pay a small fee to park as well as a fee for any rentals. We also like the Santa Ana Zoo and Discovery Cube Science museum which is small and fun for younger children. We are also of course close to big attractions such as Angel Stadium, The Honda center, Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm which is much less crowded than Disneyland and Aquarium of the Pacific. For shopping everyone loves Fashion Island and the block at Orange.
