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.

Amazing rental by the beach

  • 5 of 5

My family and sister-in-law's family shared this rental, 10 of us total. The place was perfect for all of us. The best thing for me was having to cook for Thanksgiving, the kitchen in this rental is so well equipped and organized, really impressive. The patio is truly amazing with the beach in sight. Can't say enough good things about this place. It was definitely a plus to have the garage parking. Both of our minivans couldn't fit, but it really wasn't that bad to find on-street parking. June was so accommodating and easy to work with. We were able to go to the beach once during our stay and having all those beach equipment to use for FREE was a definitely plus. Both of our families will definitely want to stay here again if we make a trip down back to SoCal.

Too many good things to say about this rental.

  • 5 of 5

I'm going to struggle to get all the good things into this review, but here goes:

- you can park your car and forget about it. The ocean is right there, and you are a quick walk to groceries, restaurants, and whatever else you need. If you have to go somewhere, they have a bunch of beach cruisers you can use. How cool is that?

- the place is awesome! Breakfast on the patio under the marine layer while soaking in the view of the ocean. Who doesn't want that? We went with 3 kids (ages 10-13) and we never saw them because they were either out at the ocean boogie boarding (also provided) or hidden up in the loft. Kids love lofts!

- what really set this place aside was the small things: good pots, pans and chef knives (a rarity) and, as mentioned above, boogie boards, bikes, a surf board, and a skim board.

- finally, I'd be remiss if I didn't talk about the internet. My wife and I couldn't completely escape the office and needed internet access. So fast internet was something we wanted, but didn't expect. The wifi they offer is blazing fast. I tested it with my SpeedTest app and I got 80 mbps in the front room.

Ideal Location and caring Owners!

  • 5 of 5

This place is great! June was amazing to work within very reasonable with a few requests we had. The kitchen is well stocked with things to cook with, house is well-maintained and the owners provide garage parking spots which is key in the Newport area. The rental also comes with tons of beach toys, chairs and a wagon to get she to and from the beach- which is one block away. There are also a handful of bikes you can take on the boardwalk. It's within walking distance to multiple restaurants and our favorite, 2 different donut shops making fresh donuts daily! You can walk down to the Pier in less than 5 minutes! Great place, plan to return again! Thanks June!!!

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!

Perfect Newport Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting the Newport Beach area for a college buddy's wedding. He suggested we stay on the Balboa Peninsula as it would allow us to enjoy the weather and bar scene to the fullest. I came across this listing due to it's bedroom count (3 bedrooms), and location (about 8 houses from beach). Once I saw the pics, I was sold. Close to beach - check. Deck w/ views - check. Bikes to use - check. Fridge for beer - check! The transaction w/ June & Bryan couldn't have gone any smoother, and while we were there, they were remarkable hosts. They live downstairs, so they are generally around at night and on weekends. All in all, this is a great place, and a very reasonable price, considering the extras you get (bikes, beach chairs, beach toys, etc..). Highly recommend to anyone heading that way.
