This cute little “upside down” beach house has it all – location, location, location! Not only is the home located on one of the best stretches of beach in Newport, the boardwalk ends at the patio, so visitors can enjoy the best of both worlds - the boardwalk is steps away, but the sand is, too – the beach comes right up to your patio. The house features an upgraded kitchen and baths and an oceanfront master off the patio – yes, the sound of the surf will lull you to sleep! The spacious patio features plenty of seating and a gas barbeque. Oh, and incredible views, too.
LIVING & DINING
The home has the bedrooms downstairs and living upstairs – to maximize ocean views. Granite counters and a breakfast bar with three stools give the kitchen a friendly, functional feel. Guests can linger over beverages and snacks while the chef whips up meals. The large dining table has six chairs for family meals. The oceanfront living area with a large sectional couch, futon and a flat screen TV - hidden in the armoire – also has a desk so you can catch up with emails or do a little work. If you must.
BED & BATH
Both bedrooms are on the ground floor as well as a large Jack & Jill bath with walk-in shower with dual shower heads. The master bedroom has a king bed, sofa, float panel TV and French doors that open out onto the beachfront patio. Two sets of twin bunk beds in the second bedroom accommodate four, so the kids can all be together.
• BR 1: Ground floor master with king bed, shared bath with walk-in shower, large oceanfront patio.
• BR 2: Ground floor guest room with two sets of twin bunk beds, shared bath.
The futon in the living room folds out into a bed.
The home offers exceptional sunset and Catalina Island views plus views north to Palos Verdes and south to the Newport Pier. Right on the sand, the front patio has comfortable seating, a gas barbeque and an umbrella. Family memories made playing on the beach, in the waves and spending time with one another will last a lifetime.
A full-size washer and dryer are located alongside the one-car carport in a locked closet.
The beach at 36th Street is perfect for sunning, swimming, surfing, boogie boarding, body surfing, skim-boarding and pretty much any other water or beach related activity you can think of! Jetties at 32nd and 36th St keep the waves manageable for most of the year and shape the waves to make the beach here family-friendly.

Charlie’s Chili on McFadden Square is “don’t miss” breakfast spot for many repeat visitors and Dory Deli has terrific food morning, noon and night - plus unbeatable people watching!
