I am a real estate broker and manage this property for my family. As a native southern-Calfornian, I love coming to the beach and know that you will too!

Matt Pentecost purchased this apartment in 1973

This property has belonged to my family for years and it has been my home-away-from-home as I was growing up. We still use the property when it is vacant since it is such a beautiful location with such great proximity to everything and provides all the amenities we could ask for.

The short walk to the beach has been wonderful as my family has created long-lasting memories of playing in the sand, surfing, and watching the sun set...only to return to a delicious bbq dinner on the patio.

VACATION HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I just got back from staying at this great unit. Pictures are very accurate & the beach TRULY is just 50 steps away. Matt met us at the apartment to check us in, showed us around the place, & gave us some tips on things to do. He had all the little things you need already stocked (trash bags, toilet paper, hand, dish, & laundry soap). There were plenty of bath towels & linens. Some previous renters had left a few things behind that came in handy (misc pantry items, beach chairs & blankets).

There was a little noise coming from the construction across the street (they're building a nautical museum by the bay), but the bedroom is on opposite side & if you close the front windows at night you'll be fine. By the time we got back from our daily excursions & getting ready for grilling dinner, they were done for the day & gone. We enjoyed seeing their progress (they don't mess around) & wished we taken a before & after pictures.

We flew directly into John Wayne & opted not to rent a car since pretty much everything on the peninsula is within walking distance & we planned on spending a lot of our time on the beach or just hanging out & grilling on the patio. (However it was really nice to have the parking pass from Matt to lend to my dad when he & his wife came to visit for dinner one night.) You can rent bikes & pretty much whatever you want to get around everywhere. There is a little market around the corner (Fry's Market on 15th) for drinks & misc items you may have forgotten at the big grocery store (Pavillions on 31st). We took at cab from the airport (approx $25+tip). If for some reason we needed a ride (ie walk down to Pavillions for groceries, but had too much to carry back) we used Uber (everyone we rode with was super fast picking us up, nice, & had immaculate cars and the ride back to the airport was only approx $14 tip included).

The kitchen gives you the opportunity to save money and do all your meals at the apartment. But if you're looking for some good restaurants to check out, here are the places we tried and would recommend:
Charlie's Chili- awesome breakfast
Woody's Wharf- laid back, great happy hour 3-6, cool patio w/ great view of the bay
Akropolis- gyro lunch special
Mint Leaf Thai- super yummy & they deliver
zPizza- everything is 100% organic, gluten-free options, big chicken wings, LOTS of topping options, vegetarian & vegan friendly, & they deliver
Seaside Donuts- grab coffee & go walk the peir

We'll be back! Have fun!

PRICE AND CONFORT

  • 5 of 5
This property and listing photos accurately reflect the rental's appearance.
Everything was as hoped for and more. The host Matt was wonderful, providing everything we needed yet respecting our privacy. The rental was indeed 50 steps to the sand(beach). Its located in a beautiful upscale neighborhood, in Newport Beach, great walks, big view from patio. Matt provided us with parking pass for metered street parking. we have three kids and our goal was to take the kids to Disneyland, Universal studios and sea world, this VRBO was so perfect to commute to the attraction parks (25min) and the joy of the beach. If you like fish you can buy fresh a few blocks away every morning from fish market or you can eat at many seafood restaurant. If we go back to Newport beach this property will be our home vacation again. Thanks Matt, was nice meeting you.

WONDERFUL NEWPORT BEACH APARTMENT!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in the apartment for 4 nights. It is ideally located between the harbor and the ocean. It is in walking or biking distance to lots of restaurants and shopping. It has lots of windows to open to keep the ocean breeze flowing through. Matt has the place stocked nicely with pretty much everything you need for your stay, hand soap, toilet paper, paper towels, a bar of soap for the shower, laundry and dishwasher detergent and a well stocked kitchen. Just bring your own toiletries and food and you are good to go.
The queen bed in the bedroom is very comfortable and our son used the small (of the two) sofa sleeper and said that it was fine as well.
Matt was an excellent host and met us at the apartment when we got there to show us around and give us the keys and parking pass. He was available by phone if we needed anything, but we never needed to contact him, we had no problems with anything.
You do have to be able to go up and down a set of stairs when coming and going, but that was fine for us. Highly recommend!

PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a great time. Everything was the way we expected it , no surprises. Which is the way you want it. The beach was so close, and we were able to get rentals right on the corner. Very convenient! I would definitely chose this place again, and again. Thank you for sharing your home.

PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
I have nothing but good things to say about this condo and Matt! Our arrival and check in was super easy, Matt was easy going and everything went smoothly. The condo was adorable, perfect size, quaint. You can see the bay from the balcony and a sliver of the ocean from the bedroom window. We kept the back bedroom windows open all night and could hear the ocean, it was very relaxing! The restaurants and shops were just a quick walk down the boardwalk, enjoyable. The weather was beautiful and the condo was fully livable, it came with all the necessities and everything we needed. I would highly recommend staying here! Families, younger couples, elderly couples, and anyone in between!
