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.

Great little spot! But, we all fit great! Wonderful cross breeze with doors open. Walk to Starbucks and Pavillion, or a short drive to Kean Coffee and Sprinkles Cupcakes! We love staying in Newport/Balboa area!
Great proximity to the beach
Overall our family had a great week at Newport Beach and the house was very close to the beach and genuinely clean. Some issues we had was the gate in the back was rusted out to the point that pieces of metal were falling off. We had two little kids with us so we couldn’t even leave both doors open for a cross breeze bec we were worried someone could get hurt. We contacted the property manager and she tried her best with a temporary fix and we were told a new one was ordered and hope it gets installed for future guests. Some other small things towels and sheets need to be updated. Towels are super small and Sheets were falling off the bed. Also it was very hard to find a plug that worked not because there was no power to them but because they had been so used that our plugs would just slip out. So the house is great but just needs some general maintenance to keep up with how the property is advertised. We would stay again if the gate was fixed so that we felt safe!
Property was great and was as described. Fit our needs perfectly, and we enjoyed our week.
Great Spot for a Family Vacation
We had a great time staying here. We fit two families (8 people total) comfortably and loved the easy beach access. The bathrooms are a little outdated and some of the doors need a little repair, but the property is excellent for the price and location! Communication with the property manager was excellent, and checking in and out was very easy.
Had a great time!
Perfect location. Just as advertised
We love this house!
2nd time coming to this home and we will be back next year. It’s clean. Super close to beach. The beds are comfortable. Love the room air conditioner up stairs. The host lives close by and attentive should you have a need.
Always love to have return guests!!! Must mean our team is doing something right. Thank you so much
Newport Beach on the Peninsula is convenient to a lot of SoCal features and attractions, i.e., Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Lego Land, many Museums, LA and San Diego Zoo, with proximity to Interstate Highways so close you can make it almost anywhere within 60-90 minutes, even San Diego.
