ON THE SAND ONLY STEPS TO LIFEGUARD TOWER 36

Balboa Peninsula House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Old Newport Beach: a small, home ON THE OCEAN FRONT SAND right near the 36th Street Life Guard Tower. Vacation the way we used to in the 1950s through the 1970s. Sand, ocean, walking on the beach or walking around town to eat, drink and shop. Rent or bring your bike/cruiser to ride to the donut shop, the Newport Pier, Alta Coffee Shop, Crab Cooker, Mutt Lynch's for breakfast burrito or pizza, Beach Burgers, sushi at Cal Beach, Pipeline burgers, Laventina's Big Cheese Pizza, Bear Flag Fish Market, and on and on. Oh yeah, and you have a kitchen, patio, bedroom, livingroom, dining room, two bathrooms - but who needs them when you are ON THE OCEAN FRONT SAND. This home is best for one or two adults or a small family. Kids love it; young at heart and under 50.

About Sara, Dave & Carol of the Seashore Shanty

I manage the family ocean front beach house. I am over 40 years old. My husband is also in the photo as is our dog, who is visits the beach house. We live in Newport just a couple of miles away. I have lived in Newport Beach, California for most of my life. The kids in the family from age 1 through 25 love this home: the beach, the surf and the sounds of the waves crashing at night and in the early morning. Great sunsets. No need to check surf report because you will be right there. We walk down the street for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It's a great place for a small family or couple or retreat for one.

Sara, Dave & Carol of the Seashore Shanty purchased this house in 1970

Why Sara, Dave & Carol of the Seashore Shanty chose Balboa Peninsula

What makes this house unique

BEACH, surf, walks on beach, walk or ride bikes to coffee house, restaurants, donut shop, cinema, market, shops, pier and or to relax - you are on the sand.

All-around Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I absolutely loved our stay at the Seashore Shanty! First, let's talk about the view - the SS is located directly on beautiful Newport Beach and is one on the few houses that has a full patio. Waking up to the sunrise with a cup of coffee (Keurig machine provided!) and eating dinner watching the sunset on the patio was amazing. Also, the view was great from inside through the sliding glass doors and windows directly overlooking the beach!

Parking seems to be a huge issue in Newport, but not at the SS - the house provides 5 parking spaces. Though, you don't really need a car because a supermarket, gas station, a bunch of restaurants & cafes, the pier, and boutique shops are in walking distance.

The SS provided wi-fi, a flat screen TV, speakers that you can plug your iPod into (YAY!), a dishwasher, washer and dryer, and all the kitchen essentials you need. It was nice being able to cook from home and save money.

I'd definitely recommend staying here - it's quite the getaway and Sarah was a great host! Enjoy :)

Perfect getaway to just enjoy life

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at the beach house on a few occasions now. Two times in the spring and one time in November. There are two main things that I really like about the beach house. The location, right on the beach, and the atmosphere of the Shanty. On the outside it looks like a shot taken fifty years ago, yet inside you have everything you need. All the comforts from home are there. It comes with a patio that connects directly to the beach, so no board walk in between. Next to this is the surrounding area quite enjoyable with the beach, bars and restaurants. I've stayed here with my girlfriend and also with another couple. Would definitely recommend to couples (any age). Corne Verdoorn 29 years old.

Love, Love, Love this place!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We just spent our third summer vacation at the Seashore Shanty, and our stay was better than ever! The Seashore Shanty is our favorite place, and we could hardly wait to get there. We love the fact that we step off of the patio and right onto the sand -- just a few steps and we're in the water! The Seashore Shanty is so comfortable and feels like home! It is clean and everything that anybody would ever need is provided. Fruit, water and snacks were even there upon our arrival -- what a welcome!! We have made our reservation for next year and can hardly wait to go back next year - our reservations are made!

Shangra La Beach Shanty

  • 5 of 5
Excellent location right at and on the beach front. Parking garage provided with the rental is a blessing in a difficult area to park. The house itself is a perfect 1.5 bath 1 bedroom beach vacation house, clean and well-maintained, with every amenity anyone would need in a short term stay. The front patio has a gate that opens directly onto the sand and beach. The house is within walking distant to a supermarket and a variety of good restaurants. The owner-management is very helpful in answering questions and providing any additional local information and lore. This is a gem of a vacation house for those lucky enough to rent it.

Perfect on the Sand!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Shanty in April and it was great! The bungalow is right on the sand with an enclosed patio and a gate that opens onto the sand. It is just past the end of the boardwalk so you don't get all the people traffic in front of you. It is adequately furnished with couch and chairs in the living area and a flat screen tv on the wall. The two beds in the bedroom are fine. The one and a half baths worked great when our kids dropped by. Dave was there to meet us when we checked in and they had left us goodies from Trader Joes. We so enjoyed walking to the pier area daily and getting breakfast at different locations. My adult kids dropped by to visit while we were there and they both said it was the best location we had ever picked and we've vacationed in SoCal beaches on a regular basis over the past several years. If you're looking for a lot of frills and fancy décor then you're at the wrong place. But if you want clean, neat and perfect with the sand at your front door then this is the place!!! The front glass doors do not open but there is a door on the side that goes out to the patio. It would make the place even better if those doors opened, but it's really not a big deal. We enjoyed great weather on the beach and wonderful hospitality. We will be back!!!

I Love This Place!

  • 5 of 5
I so love this beach cottage. In addition to being perfectly located, it has all the comfort and conveniences of a home. I’ve been back so many times, it really feels like a second home to me.

Parking is usually a hassle in Newport Beach, but at this shanty, parking is incredibly easy with the spacious garage and automatic door opener.

At other rentals, I used to have to drag my dirty laundry somewhere to get washed, but this house has a fully equipped and well supplied laundry room.

A special bonus: my canine buddy enjoys roaming freely the enclosed side yard and spacious patio.

I have two more stays planned for this year. Can’t wait to get there again....
