Why Pam Edson chose Balboa Peninsula

We love the location of this house with the beautiful clean white sand beaches just a few houses down. 29th Street is home to a wonderful group of neighbors and is very quiet. It is also one of only four double wide streets which spaces the homes nicely and allows parking on both sides.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Started writing a book on our stay but decided to sum it up in one word - Fantastic!!!

From the first moment we arrived I felt as though a best friend had invited us to stay in their beautiful home in a perfect location on Newport Beach. Although it wasn't free I would have felt obligated to pay them something. Their hospitality was wonderful; sharing things to do, providing us with all the amenities, introducing us to their neighbors....on and on...

Again just a truly fantastic family, property and overall experience.

Thank you!!!

Perfect spot in Newport

  • 5 of 5

Our whole party was so impressed with the house. Decorated perfectly for a beach vacation. Stocked with all the amenities you will need. So close to the beach. Quite neighborhood, just a short walk from the Pier.

Cozy Cottage in Newport Beach

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is cozy, well decorated and very well furnished. Cottage easily accommodates 5, with a king bed in one bedroom and another bedroom with a large bed (queen?) and a twin. It was very clean and maintained well. Parking available on the street, but it was rarely available when we were there. The garage for the home is accessible on the alley behind the cottage. Could be difficult to fit a large car in the garage. Location is fabulous--easy walk to the Newport Pier, restaurants, etc. Suggest renting bikes and enjoy riding down to the Balboa Pier. There is a bit of an ocean view from the desk window. Unless you want a full ocean view, you won't find a better place to stay in Newport Beach.

My family and I love this property and are already looking forward to returning! It was well appointed and convenient to everything. The property had everything we needed - including beach towels, beach chairs and toys. The proximity to the beach was perfect.

Absolutely wonderful stay.

  • 5 of 5

Just adorable as soon as you walk in. Extremely clean & comfortable. You can tell it is well maintained & totally updated. We were a family of four adults visiting my son & we were very comfortable. Close to the beach & within walking distance to everything or you can rent bikes down the street. The garage here was a definite perk. Parking can be a real issue this close to the beach. The owner Pam was wonderful. Available whenever you call even before the trip. My only suggestion would be a small tv in the 2nd bedroom for dvds. As four adults we didn't always care to watch the same thing when we stopped to relax. I imagine families with kids would enjoy it also. GREAT PLACE. THANKS FOR A WONDERFUL VACATION.

My family had the best time at the Beach House! The cottage was comfy and cozy and decorated so cute. Everything we needed for comfort and beach fun was there. And being steps from the beach was a bonus!
