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!

Great location to beach, dining and shops. Perfect for family and guests! Great 2ndfloor patio!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion over Father's Day weekend. Between all the houses rented this one was by far the best! Layout was perfect for our gatherings! Large living area inside and outside. Bedrooms on opposite end of living area so kids were able to go to bed and not be disturbed by later gatherings. Loft space was perfect for kids. (5 & up- the drop was a bit much For the itty bittys.) Kitchen, linen and laundry were well stocked. Plenty of beach supplies available on site. The weather was beautiful and the home has upgraded windows and plenty of fans in every room- we didn't even notice there was no A/C. June was very kind and helpful. We were so grateful to have found this gem of a beach house. Thank you June! We look forward to booking another stay!

Indoor-Outdoor Living!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the home to celebrate my daughter's graduation from Cal Poly Pomona. It was a perfect fit for a friends and family party of approximately 20 people. The kitchen was well stocked for me to prepare a variety of dishes for the pasta bar. The bar, dining table, and outdoor accommodations allowed everyone a place to eat comfortably. We were able to enjoy the fabulous indoor-outdoor living from the living/dining area to the spacious deck. The deck had a view of the ocean and a great BBQ. The children enjoyed the loft and spent a lot of time up there playing games. All of the beds were comfortable and each bedroom was well equipped with storage, a tv, and cooling fans. The master bedroom closet was a walk-in and very handy for storing things out of the way for a party. We appreciated the laundry facility that was stocked with a new washer & dryer, laundry detergent, and cleaning supplies. The spacious bathrooms made it very easy for all of us to get ready for the commencement ceremony and be on our way by 7:15 am. The showers were stocked with shampoo and shower gel. We loved being only one block from the beach. After our big meal we took all the kids down to the beach to run and explore. It was very convenient to be in walking distance to the beach, shops, restaurants, and a grocery store. We borrowed the big wagon that rolled all our beach equipment over the sand with ease. My granddaughter had a lot of fun with the buckets and sand toys. It was really nice to have an outdoor shower to rinse off and clean up the equipment. One of the greatest amenities was to have garage parking for two vehicles! That was really amazing! We wished we had had more time to relax and enjoy all this cool beach rental had to offer, like borrowing the cruisers to bike around town and along the beach. We hope to return again some day, when we are not so busy with events, to relax and explore Newport Beach.
