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.

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

LOCATION and PATIO. Enjoy the very large outdoor patio with seating for 10, a BBQ grill, and offering great views. The property is on a nice street right in the center of everything you need - a very short walk to the beach and boardwalk as the unit is one block from the beach and you are 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

Amenities & Communication. Although not on the beach, being one block away provides you the opportunity to have the best of both worlds – extremely close to the beach yet away from the foot traffic from the boardwalk. We offer our renters the use of our bikes, beach chairs, wagon, boogie boards, and beach toys. As for communication, I pride myself on my promptness regarding any/all communications with potential and current renters.

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!

Perfect beach retreat

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great at the cool beach house. The location is fantastic, and the patio area was beyond perfect for our group of friends to relax and spend time together. June and Brian were great hosts, and the bikes and beach equipment are definitely pros to staying in this rental. Thank you!

Relaxing vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We spent a good and relaxing time with our family and friends!

The House was cleaned and quite and we found everything we needed!

We also enjoyed the possibility to bike using the bicycles given by the owner.

If there will be another possibility to go to Newport we will consider this house again!

Great property and as described!

  • 5 of 5

I hesitated to write a review because I don't want this hidden gem to become well know, making it harder for me to find available dates in the future! The owners thought of everything and other than ourselves, clothing and food, we just needed to show up! Thanks June!

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!

Owner's Response: Shelee, Thanks for the positive review and feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed our property and everything it has to offer. 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

Bike along the boardwalk from The Wedge all the way to Huntington Beach. Take your bikes on the Balboa Ferry from the Fun Zone over to Balboa Island for the day. Balboa Island has lots of shopping and wonderful restaurants.
