Great vacation by the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week at Tower 13 with our two teenagers. What a wonderful spot. The apartment was beautifully appointed with everything we needed for our family of 4, including 2 baths, outdoor shower, laundry and dryer, great kitchen, nearby grocery store, front patio, BBQ grill, plenty of bath and beach towels, parking spot and garage full of beach items (wagon, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, bikes and more - I LOVED having a bike!). Not only did it have everything I needed and wanted but the apartment is lovely with clean lines and nice fixtures. The beach is steps away with the big Newport waves that we love - and right at a lifeguard tower. Kat and John were fabulous and responsive to all my questions pre and during stay and just so nice. We followed their recommendation to have the kids do surfing with Endless Sun Surf School!

Lovely new home, great location, family oriented

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful for a small family or just a quiet get away for two. Built just a few years ago it has all the amenities you could ask for. Clean and beautifully maintained. Owners provided beach chairs, beach toys, adult and children's bikes for our use which was a huge savings and nice way to explore the entire peninsula. Situated half way between Balboa and Newport piers on the peninsula so a short walk to either the beach or bay or either pier. Quiet family oriented neighborhood, with quiet neighbors above.

The owners took the time to meet us and made sure we had everything we needed. Also gave us tips on restaurants, hikes and other activities in the area. Great experience, would definitely rent again.

Beautiful house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2.5 year old daughter, and I stayed at this house for 4 nights. It was a beautiful house and was in a great location (close to beach, stores, restaurants, and parks)!! The house had everything that you could possibly need including a lot of toys, books, and games for our daughter. There was also a garage full of outside toys (bikes, etc) and beach gear/toys. We tend to stay at vrbo's and airbnb's when we travel, and this was by far one of the cleanest and most equipped homes we have stayed in! The owners were very quick to reply to all our questions, were helpful in their responses, and were very pleasant to work with! We would definitely stay again if we were traveling to Newport Beach!

Look no further... you have found the perfect beach house! We couldn't have been more happy with our whole experience in renting this beach house from Kat and John. They were always available to answer questions before our arrival, and it was so fun to have a chance to meet them once we arrived. They made us feel welcome and at home.

This beach house rental is beautiful, up-to-date, clean, perfectly located, and provided us a nice place to relax when we'd come home at night after a full day of playing in the ocean, riding our bikes up and down the boardwalk, and shopping. Walk around the corner and you're on the beach... just perfect!

It has everything you want and need in the way of technology and fun... internet, Apple TV, dvd player, boogie boards, bikes, a beach wagon, beach towels, beach umbrella, and more. We will come again and again and again. We've rented other beach houses in recent years, and will never have to look again because we found the perfect house in the perfect place from the greatest people.

I have recommended this property to several friends who want to visit Newport Beach and have a fun, memorable, and easy vacation. Our family of four loved every minute! Thanks to Kat and John for helping us make our vacation one of the best!
