About JUNE WINDMULLER

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 Balboa Peninsula

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 Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several places in the Newport Beach area. We typically like to be closer to the main activity (not on the peninsula thus far), so this property fit the bill! We were walking distance to Malarky's and the grocery store and Mama D's. The beach and the strand were right across Balboa. It really was perfect.

We were a little worried about this home not having air conditioning. We have been burned by people saying "you don't need air conditioning...just open the windows and let the cool beach breeze blow in." Yah...well...if you're too far from the beach that may or may not work. Anyway! In October this was not an issue and we were very comfortable. The property had everything we needed...from kitchen supplies and accessories to towels, blankets, sheets, fans and beach toys...including a new, awesome beach wagon that held all our crazy stuff quite nicely! The enclosed garage was another plus. It made us feel secure and the parking was very easy.

June was such a pleasure to work with. When we arrived it was very late and the code wouldn't work. She got up and came out and helped us, despite the late hour. She was pleasant and happy about it and I'm not sure I would have handled it the same way! It was such a relief.

The property itself was great. 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms, a large loft and the patio is what we just loved. So nice to be able to sit outside and eat and look at the ocean. The master bath only has one sink so that was mildly annoying but not overly burdensome. The bathrooms and kitchen are not super updated but updated enough to feel comfortable. There is a brand new washer dryer in the home that was very helpful in getting just enough laundry done to get home with some clean clothes to wear.

We traveled with 2 kids under 10 and they loved the space of this property. They could go up to the loft and read or play their iPads and we could be downstairs watching TV or whatever. We never felt like we were bumping into one another. It was really great. The kids said they loved the TVs in every room, the loft and the outdoor patio the best.

Overall it was a very comfortable stay and we look forward to our next stay at the Beach House!

Although not a newly renovated beach house, we do pride ourselves on its cleanliness, its location, and offering guests all the amenities one needs at the beach. As you stated, it is very comfortable. We do hope you and your family will stay at our property again! ~ June

This was the perfect place for our group!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property! Perfect for our long weekend enjoying the sun! The location is prime for easy access to the beach as well as food and fun. They also provide everything you would need for a great day on the beach. The outdoor shower is super helpful as well. We enjoyed the deck often as it was the perfect place to hang out and watch the sunset. Over all Five stars!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our week at this property was fantastic! Finding a rental that can accomodate our family of 10 while considering location, size, and cost is not an easy task and this property fit the bill!

The property is just a few steps to the beach and that we loved. The grocery store, restaurants, pier, gift shops, etc are just as close which made it nice to not have to drive during our stay. The home easily fit our family of 10 and the loft was a huge hit with the all children but especially the teens. They liked it so much that some of them chose to sleep up there. The weather was gorgeous during our visit, but ceiling fans and portable fans were available if needed. We had everything we could ever need. The kitchen was well stocked, the large sofa and balcony seating for all of us to be together at once was a big selling point for me, beds were comfortable, provided beach towels nice and much appreciated, and all of the outdoor/beach items available for our use was great! The kids enjoyed using the wetsuits, boogie boards, and skimboard. The outdoor shower was appreciated. We truly wanted and needed nothing while there. Even the unplanned need for street parking (not due to the garage, but rather a necessary late change in the vehicles driven) wasn't an issue but I'm sure during the summer months that could be more of a challenge although not prohibitive.

June was fantastic to work with from beginning to end! She has thought of everything you could possibly need... and more. Her attention to all details from booking, check-in, during the stay, and check-out made it so there really wasn't any reason to contact her. Her responses were prompt the few times I did reach out. She was even able to accommodate a late checkout so we could get to Mass and after check-out allowed our adult son to keep his bag in the garage until time to Uber to the airport. We really appreciated both of those special favors.

We loved making this property our home away from home last week. When we arrived at our actual home late Sunday, our 3-year old son said "I want to go to my blue house, not this one." He loved it there and even now as I write this review, he saw the picture and said "I want to go to my blue house."

Thank you June and Brian for making us feel right at home! We will be back!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

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.
