Rental ID: NB20215B (sleeps 4)
Welcome to one of the most recognizable locations on the Newport/Balboa Peninsula: “The Retro A-Frames of 15th Street”! Our rear upper studio, which includes a bonus loft, has just been lovingly restored and tastefully furnished to accommodate private coastal getaways for singles, couples or small families, looking for nearby beach or bay access at bargain prices. An easy ½ block walk one direction leads to the beautiful Pacific Ocean; ½ block the other direction leads to the equally lovely Newport Harbor. Both destinations provide multiple options for great water recreation & excursions, for which Newport Beach is renowned. For those travelers who prefer a more relaxed pace, the private balcony affords a spacious oasis from the hustle and bustle of town in the shade of an umbrella or in full sunlight.
The ground floor entrance on the side of the property leads to the upper main level of the studio, where the queen bed arrangement is the central focal point of all amenities. Flanked on all sides are the cable TV, a working desk, leather love seat, and just beyond, a fully-stocked kitchen & dining area. Hints of a classical nautical theme remind guests of their seaside surroundings. The original architectural points from the early 1960’s have been wonderfully preserved: bead board, built-ins, and woodwork reminiscent of a boat’s interior.
The loft bedroom, which is furnished with two twin beds, is accessed by a ladder, and is strictly off-limits to young children due to extreme caution that must be exercised at all times with the exposed opening at the top. Note: Parents must use their discretion when considering this accommodation.
There are no laundry facilities on-site, but there is a convenient laundromat in the area.
PARKING: There is no designated parking, however there is unmetered, metered and pay-kiosk parking throughout the general neighborhood. All metered parking in the city of Newport Beach is free after 6 p.m. and before 8 a.m. Be sure to read all street signs!
Several commercial establishments are just across the street, including Fry’s Market: a local convenience store; the local 15th Street Surf Shop; and the Stuft Surfer: a family-owned breakfast & fast food casual eatery with picnic tables right on the oceanfront sand….it’s a local AND tourist favorite! A real treat at Christmas time is the Newport Harbor Boat Parade of Lights, which passes right by 15th Street’s very own public dock: a front row seat to the best show in town is just a few yards away from the studio loft; a spectacular fireworks show is given on the first and last nights of the boat parade off either of the two landmark piers on the oceanfront – it’s an occasion to remember!
Fabulous restaurants are abundant throughout the Newport/Balboa Peninsula, with many of them an easy walk or bike ride away. But guests can also enjoy the amenities of the studio loft’s kitchen and outdoor balcony dining and barbecue areas with home cooked meals….either way, you won’t go hungry in Newport Beach!
Because of our mild climate, this house (like most in the area) DOES NOT have air conditioning.
