Charming 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Home In Lovely Peninsula Point
Why Kate Rhymer chose Balboa Peninsula
Our family began vacationing in Newport Beach in 1996, when our children were young. We started out on Balboa Island, but then fell in love with the Balboa Peninsula! We've been coming to Newport Beach for 20 years and our (now grown) children have the best memories of riding bikes, jumping in the waves, eating Balboa Bars! We bought this charming cottage in 2005 and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!
What makes this House unique
Our home has a unique warm and welcoming feel as soon as you walk in the front door!! We are located at the end of the charming Peninsula Point neighborhood. Fabulous spot for a family vacation, or a girl's getaway. Great location for bike riding - you can park your car and not move it for days! Grab your beach chairs and towels - the sand is just steps away. Make sure you take the ferry over to Balboa Island and do a little shopping on Marine Avenue - and a Balboa Bar is a must! We love to grill in the backyard and then enjoy dinner on the front porch - but we always love to go out to the sand for the gorgeous sunsets. One of our favorite things is to sit around the fire pit in the back yard and make s'mores in the summer time. Our family has been coming to this area for 20 years - it's our little slice of paradise!!

Great time at the beach!
Kate was a great host! The house is not your average rental. It is cutely decorated and stocked with high quality amenities. There were a lot of nice touches. We travel to the beach often and not having to bring bikes, chairs, umbrellas or even beach towels was a big plus. The house is in a relatively quiet and beautiful neighborhood with access to a quiet beach, but it is also just a short walk from the fun zone and pier if that is more your style. The patio's in front and back were both great environments to enjoy a meal or just to relax and talk by the fire pit. The house is great for 4-6 as advertised. I wouldn't advise trying to squeeze in any more than that.
Perfect Beach Getaway!
We can not say enough about how great this location and house are! The kids loved the beach, the bikes, boogie boards and sand toys. We all loved the family games and puzzles they had as well! We loved that we could bike everywhere! Thank Kate for all of your kindness and your much loved beach home!
Everything was perfect.
My family had the best time here. Everything was provided for. The beach was beautiful. The locals were sooooo nice. We felt like we were at home and definitely will be back. The owner, Kate, was accommodating and lovely...just a real nice person. We were sad to leave, but will look forward to next time.
Happy Beach Home for our family
We loved staying at "Surf's Up" and Kate was a great hostess! Her beach cottage has all the comforts of home and has a warm and cozy feel. The beds were comfy, we roasted marshmallows in the fire pit, rode bikes almost every day, and played cards on the front deck and walked to the beach each day and enjoyed watching the body surfing happening at the Wedge. It was a short bike ride to the ferry to Balboa Island and Kate's directions and suggestions she left us were very helpful. We liked being a bit off the beaten path and never had problems finding street parking in front of the house. Kate was responsive to questions and gracious with a snack basket as well when we arrived. I would certainly recommend her place, but not the dates for when we want to return!
Loved our stay! Feels like home, every detail is taken care of. Kate is a fantastic host. Near the beach in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood.
Great house beautiful beach!
We had such an awesome time at this house. It was clean, had comfortable beds and everything you could possibly need. The air conditioning worked great and one day we just opened the windows to let the air in and that was great too. We enjoyed the wagon, beach chairs and sand toys for our little ones at the beach. The location was awesome with only a few steps to the beach. We always had a place to park in front of the house. We loved staying here and I was sad we couldn’t stay a few more days. You won’t be disappointed with this house!
Our lovely home is located at the end of the charming Peninsula Point neighborhood. The beach is just steps away, but day trips are also fun - Disneyland, California Adventure, and Knott's Berry Farm are less than an hour away. Enjoy a day exploring Catalina Island! Quick drive to shopping at Fashion Island or Irvine Spectrum. Just a mile away at the Balboa Pier you can rent a kayak, jet skis, or parasail, or take the ferry over to quaint Balboa Island. So much to do in Orange County!
