About Bill and Julie Ebeling

We currently live a few blocks from this rental unit. We moved here from Colorado in 2005 and this was our first home. This is an original 1929 beach house that has been completely upgraded for modern comforts. There is a small ocean view from the second floor. We have enjoyed this house with friends and family and great neighbors.

Bill and Julie Ebeling purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Bill and Julie Ebeling chose Balboa Peninsula

We chose this property because it is close to the sand and kids do not have to cross any busy streets. The location allows flexibility getting on and off the peninsula. We also wanted to be next to the ocean to enjoy the ocean view and ocean breeze. The house is close to the board walk so the family can walk or ride bikes to Newport or Balboa pier. We are far enough away from Balboa Blvd so the traffic noise is not an issue. Catch the bus just a few houses away if you don't want to drive, or get in the car and head to Disneyland or Knott's Berry Farm within 20 minutes or enjoy old Hollywood and Universal Studios 45 minutes North. You can head South to Lego Land, Sea World, San Diego Zoo, San Diego Animal Kingdom in 50 minutes. You are right in the middle of all amenities within a 50 mile radius. Enjoy the shopping at Fashion Island, or go to the Segerstorm concert hall just a few miles away in Costa Mesa. If you get tired of the beach, walk across the street to the bay side of the peninsula and enjoy a Duffy boat cruise on the bay. Ride your bikes down to the Balboa fun zone and let the kids play, eat corn dogs, pizza and have fun while you enjoy a nice dinner or shopping all overlooking the bay and the kids. Take the ferry from the fun zone over to Balboa Island and ride around or shop. This property allows you to walk or ride a bike to everything the peninsula offers. The grocery store is walking distance as well as restaurants and shopping. Are you a member of the American Legion? Stop by ours and see why Newport has the highest membership in the country. This is a kid friendly American Legion on the bay with a private beach for the kids to play on, while mom and dad listen to live music and dance outside on the bay while enjoying a cocktail.

What makes this bungalow unique

This is an original 1929 Mission style beach bungalow. there is a family room down stairs as well as you can use the upstairs bedroom as a family room. It has a pull out sofa bed, game table, and TV and bathroom. It has hardwood teak floors throughout, and granite counter tops in the kitchen, front patio and a patio in between the front house and the back house so you can let the kids play.

Perfect little beach house

We loved your home, perfect walk to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The only issues we had weren't really issues but more of an inconvenience:

We couldn't find a broom or dustpan-finally found a broom outside in garage.

Dishwasher didn't seem to be cleaning,also we weren't sure if the tabs under the cabinet (in ziploc) were dishwasher tabs or laundry. They didn't dissolve in dishwasher.

Neighbors across the street were a nuisance but we know there's nothing you can do about it.

We would love to stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind review. For future info, Newport Beach Police is extremely responsive to loud and alcohol fuel disturbances. Denise would have been happy to make the call on your behalf. I think the broom and pan may have been used and mistakenly placed in the garage, we apologize. Thanks again Bill, Julie and Denise
