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!

It was a great location. Easy to get to the beach or to PCH. We loved all the beach toys, beach chairs and beach towels that were provided. There were plenty of fans that helped keep us cool during a heat wave that hit while we were there. Hope to stay there again.

We absolutely loved this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was fantastic!! Location location location!!! The house is very well equipped and has everything you'll need for the beach as well- the outside patio gives you a view of the beach and it's perfect for morning and evenings when you just want to relax and enjoy the view and weather.

The check in and out process were easy and the 2 car garage was wonderful to accommodate our family since parking is always a little hard to find during a weekend. They even had bikes we used!

You're also not going to find a better host than the owner- she's so accommodating and a great communicator! We couldn't say enough nice things about the place!

A Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this vacation home and would recommend it to others without any hesitation. We look forward to coming back in future years. We have stayed at two other (more expensive) locations on the Peninsula, and this home turned out to be our favorite. We had four adults and two children in our group, although the home could accommodate more easily. We found the home clean and comfortable and well-equipped with not only the essentials but also all of the "little things" that become important (e.g., nightlights for the children, band-aids, scissors, umbrellas, games, etc.). The owners coded the keypads with a number that matched our home address, which was easy to recall (just an example of the detail shown). The living area was comfortable and the fact that one walked out to the deck from the living area just expanded the space and the open feel. The loft became a "pirate ship" for the kids. We brought our own beach gear but the owners made available a wide variety of beach items, which we used to supplement our stuff. The wagon to haul stuff to the beach was an amazing convenience! We loved the close proximity to the grocery store and, yet, the location was still within a easy walking distance to the Pier. We had all the space we needed to park two cars in the garage. Above all, the owners were gracious and friendly!
