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 Newport Beach

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.

This house is a great location from the beach and surrounding community!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for our family of 4, plus overnight guests.

The hosts and property manager are very receptive to any needs during your stay; also helpful in recommending rentals and sightseeing opportunitued. Great to have a garage on this street!

Only downside--two parties on our street till 5am on the weekend...we aren't air conditioner users, which there is one in the master bedroom--but that may have helped with the noise levels.

We have already rebooked for next year!

Super cute bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect and the house was very spacious to easily sleep 6 people! The house is four houses from the beach and only about 10 minute walk to restaurants. The house is really clean and super cute! We will definitely stay here again!

Great Home in a Great Location with a Few Suggestions

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our too short, two-day stay. Although the weather was on the cool side & the surf was poor, the few-step walk to the beach demonstrated the location's excellence under the right surf & weather conditions. Great places to eat & everything needed are a quick hop in the car away.

The home itself is a unique gem with all a couple (us) or a family up to 6 would need. The upstairs master suite is beautiful & spacious - just must use the space heater in cooler weather. Its king bed is luxurious - we just would've preferred a firmer mattress (a matter of personal taste).

The hot water takes a while to kick in, but not a big deal. An easy improvement would be to upgrade the quality of available towels.

The downstairs is compact, but efficient & adequate. The 2 downstairs bedrooms are on the small size, but fine for young children or teenagers.

The bag of ice in the freezer was a nice touch & contained the best ice cubes I've seen.

Overall, it's a very cool, clean, well-maintained place & I recommend it highly.

Cute place, great use of space

  • 5 of 5

This place had a great beach cottage feel and we especially loved the separate upstairs master/suite. It really made our stay because we had our own oasis away from our 18 year old daughter and 21 year old niece who visited with her while we were there! Everyone had their own space. The king bed in the master was a plus. The owner was very responsive to questions and requests which meant a lot to us. The place is small but the space was used very wisely. We had everything we needed, although a few extra pots for cooking would have been nice (there were lots of frying pans though). The beds were comfy, the place was clean, linens were in good shape and the refrigerator was huge! The beach really was just a very short walk away and the overall neighborhood was very nice. As with all beach rentals we've ever frequented, parking is a challenge. There was garage parking for one car which was VERY nice to have, but a larger vehicle might have troubles because of the way people block garages and park in the alley. Parking for a 2nd vehicle was very difficult and/or nonexistent and we were there during off-season. There is an excellent grocery store nearby and pretty much anything else you'd want. We visited Balboa Island to see all the Christmas lights -- beautiful little town. We truly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it highly to others. Out of all the places we've stayed when visiting the CA beaches, this was one of our favorites to date because the owner is truly involved and it feels more like a home than a "corporate-run" rental. They really care about this place and it shows. The master suite was the other thing that really set it apart. We would definitely stay again if we're ever in the area. Thank you Bill for a great experience.

Love the location, good flow of the house,50 steps to the beach beds so soft

  • 5 of 5

This is a 1929 cottage and is updated but of course still has the character of being an almost 100 yr old. The owner Bill & Denise( property manager) was easy and they were very accommodating. The house had great living space flow and the front patio was amazing to sit, eat & people watch. Ohh... the beds enveloped you and we enjoyed many lie ins especially my teenage daughter. The kitchen is nicely updated and had good cooking space. It has ac in upstairs master, plenty of beach chairs and garage parking for a small SUV. About 50 steps to the beach and 7 blocks from grocery store and nightlife ( easily walkable). The boardwalk starts in the beach on 36th and we loved riding bikes and walking on it to go to the pier.
