In December 2014 Bryan and I purchased our 'cool beach house' duplex on the Balboa Peninsula. Both of us are natives of NJ and alumni of Virginia Tech. Bryan has lived on the Peninsula since 2007 and June moved here in 2013.

We each have had some experience with renting other properties and the summer of 2015 was our first time doing so here in Newport Beach. We enjoy watching college football, drinking red wine, listening to classic rock, and trekking over to one of Newport's established bars - Blackies By The Sea, where ''everyone knows your name'.

JUNE WINDMULLER purchased this house in 2014

Why JUNE WINDMULLER chose Newport Beach

Great location, a wonderful view, and a very large outdoor patio. A very short walk to the beach and boardwalk as the unit is one block from the beach. The duplex easily sleeps 8 - 10 people, depending on sleeping arrangements, and is within walking distance to many restaurants, bars, bike and surf board rental companies, and the grocery store. More importantly, we live here in Newport Beach and promise to provide you with a personal touch and a very positive experience.

We enjoy meeting new people, are extremely easy going and are excited to turn this property into one that you will want to come back to year after year.

What makes this house unique

Location. Although not on the beach, being one block away provides you a view of the beach. The property is on a nice street right in the center of everything you need.

The Patio is a plus. Sit back and enjoy relaxing on the patio and watch the sun go down.

Fantastic house in a great location with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for better accommodations for our recent family trip to California! The house was just as we hoped, but the huge second floor patio was beyond compare. We spent a great deal of our time on it enjoying the weather and incredible ocean view. The location of the house is perfect. We parked our cars in the garage upon arrival and didn't use them again until it was time to leave. Everything you need is within walking distance. The owners were very helpful and welcoming. They truly have everything you need to enjoy the beach and surrounding areas (bikes, beach chairs, toys, etc). Not having to drag all that with us was great! We've already talked about our return trip!

Thanks for a wonderful vacation!

Plenty of room for 2 families/Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Once we arrived in Newport, we did not get in our car. We could walk everywhere-the beach, the grocery store, ice cream, dinner etc. In addition, this location was perfect to have the best of both worlds for our kids-the beach and Disneyland. It was a short 30 minute drive to Disney. The kids loved the patio and loft area. We had 5 boys between ages 9-5. They were happy to bunk-up together. It was perfect for what we were looking for in our vacation!

Owner's Response: Andrea, I enjoyed meeting you and the boys and appreciate the positive review. I always like to hear that families enjoyed our property and its location. What more can five boys want besides the beach and Disneyland?? Hope you will return to Newport beach. Regards, June

Perfect place for families---has everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this awesome place. The owners are the best and all you need for a great stay is provided. Short walk to beach, great ride (with bikes provided) to any of the piers and central to all the stores/eateries you would want. Awesome patio and spaces for two families to spread out. We will definitely book this place again.

We really enjoyed the location and convenience of this beach house. It was very well stocked, comfortable and clean. We also appreciated that there were bikes to use for our family and all the other things needed for the beach! It was private and close to just about everything! We will definitely be back and would highly recommend it.

Team Building

  • 5 of 5

We held a Team Building event and Cool Beach rental was the perfect venue. There was plenty of space for our group of 6. It's immaculate and well appointed with all the desired furnishings and supplies of a hotel. The unit floor-plan is excellent, we never felt crowded even with up to eight of us in the living area. The deck is an awesome place for breakfast and grilling with a nice view of the beach and ocean. The location is 10 out of 10. Easy walking to great restaurants and bars.
