House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

The kitchen is large and has been remodeled. It is larger than the average kitchen compared to most units in Newport Beach. There is a table for six people and also bar seating for four more. The living room has a couch, loveseat and a chair with a 40' TV. On the balcony which has ocean/beach views, there are two additional tables, chairs and a barbeque. There is a shared (with lower unit) non-coinop washer/dryer unit located downstairs in a large laundry room, which has room to store bikes, surf boards, etc. You have one parking space in the garage, which is located off the alley behind the house. The unit has not been rented as a weekly rental until 2010 and is in very good shape. The downstairs is a two bedroom /one bath unit is also available for rent if you need more space.

Keywords: Upstairs unit of a duplex (condo) located five houses from the beach (steps to sand).

We are a beach-loving family that happens to live in the Palm Springs area. We rented in Newport for years and were able to purchase this home in 2003. We stay at the beach when we can every summer. Otherwise, we rent out the other weeks. Our kids love surfing, boogie boarding and going to Angels games while we're there. We hope you love the beach as much as we do and enjoy our home!

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

We have made the Newport Beach area our #1 vacation destination. If we're not using the unit, then we can rent it out to help cover our expenses. We feel it's the perfect family vacation. Parents can relax, while the kids (no matter what age) can run the beach safely all day.

This is one of the few places in Southern California where once you park your car, you don't need it to get anywhere until you leave! You can walk to the grocery store and restaurants (fast-food - gourmet). Also, Newport Fashion Island and the South Coast Plaza are only a few minutes away by car. There are so many things to do within a few blocks from the house (kayaking, sail boating, basketball, tennis, bicycle & running paths, fishing, etc). You can ride on bike paths all the way to Huntington Beach or the path along the Santa River into Orange County. Or you can just sit on the beach and do nothing all day! The surf conditions and the sand are safe for small children and is one of the best boogie board beaches around.

FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at Johns second floor property that suited 8 adults and 6 children. The home was very spacious, and plenty of room for everyone including visitors. The kitchen was great and had all the amenities you needed. We had to call John a few times to ask a few questions and he was always there and courteous. The location is perfect for families with little ones , so you can walk to and from the beach as much as you need. Thank you so much and can't wait until next time!

GREAT VACATION IN NEWPORT BEACH AT THIS HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at this house last summer and the kids and hubby had a great time! No need to drive any where with the beach only 7 houses away, and the grocery store and restaurants within walking distance. We hit up Costco on the way in and never needed our car after that except to go to the Angels Baseball game and Disneyland for the day! The bedrooms and bathrooms were plenty big and we fit two families in the upstairs unit for a few nights and it was not a problem at all. Great kitchen with plenty of seating and everything you need to feed a large family. Planning on staying again next year. The owner was just down the street and checked on us several times (great service). We even borrowed a few bikes from him and some extra beach chairs. Our favorite thing to do at night was to walk down to the pier on the boardwalk. Love it!

GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We've been renting at Newport during the summer for over a decade. We've rented in some pretty sketchy places and boy was this place a nice change of pace! We rented both the top and bottom units for a week and had a great time. The proximity to the beach is fabulous! The house is clean, well furnished, has tons of storage, and FREE laundry! The bathrooms are nice and the kitchen is very well stocked.
John is great to work with and let us tour the place prior to our arrival. We'd definitely rent here again.

GREAT BEACH GETAWAY FOR OUR LARGE FAMILY

  • 4 of 5
We rented the upstairs and downstairs units for our family of 11 the first week of August. First of all, the weather was PERFECT and so were the waves. We found the place to be clean and just as the pictures said. John was kind enough to provide sheets and towels. Having the garage was a plus and so were the washer and dryer. Having a bedroom for each of our four kids and their spouses was also a plus. The unit is about 7 houses from the beach, which made it very convenient to go back and forth for food, snacks, naps, etc. We mostly hung out upstairs, but on days when it was quite hot, we used the oven in the downstairs unit and also ate down there on the patio or around the TV watching the Olympics. We borrowed four beach cruisers from John which provided a lot of fun for a few days. We spent one day at Knott's Soak City in Buena Park, we shopped at Fashion Island and we spent one evening at the Fun Zone on Balboa - all a very short drive away. Mostly we hung out on the beach, watching the surfers in the morning, and then playing volleyball on the beach or boogie and body surfing in the water. Great location.
Our kids are already talking about "next time". If we did, I have two suggestions for John. The downstairs master bed is just a foam mattress. It doesn't breathe, so you stay pretty hot and also the bed makes ALL kinds of noises every time you move, which can awaken your partner from a deep sleep. I would also suggest the availability of bikes for this unit. The two days with the beach cruisers wasn't nearly enough! Our son actually came home back to Oregon and bought a beach cruiser for his wife to take back and forth to work and school! They were so much fun.
Would definitely recommend this place and we are seriously considering it for next year.
