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 Orange County

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!

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!!!

Very clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for our annual girls retreat. It was very comfortable for the 5 of us. We liked that it was a little off the boardwalk because it was very quiet. Wonderful stay!

Just as expected!

  • 4 of 5

We have come here twice so far, and love the location (minute walking distance to the sand) and comfortable stay with our kids and friends. Looking forward to coming back again sometime soon! Reason for 4 star and not 5, is because a few small appliances didn't work well, also, there didn't seem to be much high or low dusting in the cleaning process for a very long time. But a little dirt never hurt 😉

Owner's Response: Hi Heather, Thanks for the feedback! I will definitely pass it along to the cleaners. I do know however from staying there and cleaning it myself, it gets really dusty really fast from all of the sand being kicked up in the air from being so close to the beach. I never have to dust high on my walls or my ceiling at home and there it seems to build up quick and needs to be wiped down twice a week. Also it is so weird that the toaster wasn't working for you. I bought a new one, but when I went to check it the one there worked fine for me so who knows? Glad over all you enjoyed it! Thanks for the good review! Hope to have you again!

Perfect location, clean space, lots of beach life amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for a family and friends getaway. It's just a block from the beach and close enough to conveniences that you can walk. It's also nice that this home is far enough away from the boardwalk hussle and party-goers for peace and quiet but still close enough to walk or bike to both Newport and Balboa piers. Very clean and comfortable living quarters with plenty of space. Priced perfectly too without outrageous deposit and cleaning fees. It's a place we will come back to again. Truly amazing trip and this home was at the center of it all!!

Clean beautiful open home.

  • 5 of 5

Property well cared for and decorations were fantastic. Plenty of room for everyone to relax! The kitchen was perfect, with all the cooking appliances. Everything provided we just needed to bring the food. This house is set in a nice quiet neighborhood. We spent the week in March and it was very relaxing. Nice to have the beach all to ourselves. I imagine that even in the summer it's quieter than the Pier area. Thank you!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great review! Yes, the summer months do get a lot busier at the pier! It's nice to be in a spot with limited public street parking! Makes the beach a little less crowded on our side! :)

Big, Bright and Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, this property is everything described and more. Starting with the owner, Stephanie, she is very easy to work with, and prompt in responding to questions and inquiries. If you are looking for a quiet place that is literally only three houses away from an awesome beach, look no further. This property has it all. We just completed a two week stay, and will definitely be renting again when we next return to Newport Beach. I can't tell you how much my wife and I enjoyed staying here. During the two weeks we were joined for part of the time by our son and his family from San Diego, and during another part of the time by our son who lives in LA. There is plenty of space and beds to sleep eight people, with room to spare. If you are seeking a wonderful Newport Beach vacation spot, look no further - book this place. We highly recommend it!

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.
