Space 1,900 sq ft
Property type townhome
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Pool table & flat screens: 5 bedrooms, 3 bath, Steps to the Sand

This home is the 3rd house from the sand, right by one of the best surf spots in Orange County, the 52nd Street River Jetties. This is a 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom upstairs unit of a duplex with parking in the garage (the whole house is available for rent as well if you'd like the entire duplex for your stay). The living room area has vaulted ceilings with sliding glass doors that open to the front facing balcony. There you can BBQ with family while watching the sunset.

The kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances and everything you need to cook during your stay. We recently repainted and redecorated the whole home to best fit a vacation rental (new beds with comfortable bedding, fully stocked kitchen, and elegant beach decor). The open layout includes plenty of seating and a pool table for entertainment for the whole family! Tiled throughout the common areas with newly remodeled master bathroom. Flat screen TV with cable in the living room and with Netflix in the master.

Each of the five bedrooms has a queen bed with plenty of closet space.

Since the biggest perk of this home is being so close to the sand, we have provided bicycles, boogie boards, and beach toys for your use while on vacation! All you need to do is have fun!

About Kristen Bendanna

Our family has owned this property together for a long time and have decided to rent it out as a vacation home so that we can finally use it on the off weeks! We can't wait to spend more time in Newport Beach:)

Kristen Bendanna purchased this townhome in 2002

Why Kristen Bendanna chose Newport Beach

Newport Beach has something to offer for people of all ages and we feel its a great place to vacation year round!

What makes this townhome unique

Location, Location, Location! Right by the sand on the North End of the peninsula allows you to enjoy the sand on your vacation with restaurants within walking distance. Want to get off of the peninsula? You won't have to worry about beach traffic since you have quick access to PCH and the 55. Oh yeah, and the house was just remodeled in May 2015!

Perfect spot near the beach and plenty to do all day long

  • 5 of 5

This place has a great updated charm and everything you need to cook, grill, sleep, chill out, and play some pool. Even found the closet with Halloween costumes and that was a wild hour of fun.

Great Location and Big Property!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed last week at this property, July 2017. It is a great location to the beach and not a far walk or bike ride to the pier. The beach front was great....not nearly as crowded as the boardwalk beach front. It is an older property so you give up luxury for room and location which was worth it! The owner was great and easily available if needed.

Roomy house very close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for our family. Our number one priority was being able to walk to the beach. This was perfect. If we forgot something it was just a minute to run back and get it. The house was very homey with a beach vibe (loved the ceilings). We didn't cook while we were there but it seemed to be set up to do that. We all admired the stove- we just didn't use it! We were a little worried about lack of A/C but it was not a problem. Just open some windows and turn on the fans. It actually cooled off very well - especially at night. Great to have the washer and dryer downstairs and very grateful for parking for 2 cars (we drove 2 SUV's and it was tight but they did fit) We had others meet us at the beach and parking was pretty interesting especially on Saturday. We did use some sand toys(buckets and shovels) and our two kids rode bikes one day down to a little park just a few blocks away when it was a little overcast and cool at the beach. It looked like there were quite a few boogie boards, etc. but we didn't ever have time to try them. It was nice to have those kinds of things there. There is a great little strip mall with several places to eat just a couple blocks away (also Jack in the Box). I think we tried most of them- the doughnut shop was a favorite but they all were good. If you go down to the pier our favorite place was Rockin' Baja Lobster. I would recommend walking or taking Uber as parking down there on a weekend was almost non-existent. Overall this was a great vacation and if I get the chance I will go back.

You're on it! Newport Beach
Car: recommended

The Newport Beach Peninsula offers the best vacation spots in Orange County. Just a 30 minute drive to Disneyland, a quick 10 minutes from John Wayne airport, and steps to the sand for surfing and family fun in the sun, Newport Beach has something to offer for the whole family! This area is known for its beautiful sandy beaches, great swells for surfing, and high end shopping at Fashion Island. There is no shortage of restaurants and bars (and most within walking distance) where you can unwind after a long day playing volleyball on the beach and watching the sunset off the pier.
