About Erik Vandenakker

The Vandenakker Family (John, Kimberlee, Erik and Cameron) live on-site and manage the VRBO on behalf of The Peter Swanberg Trust. Peter was Kimberlee's beloved father and an AMAZING Grandpa to Erik and Cam! This tight family of five shared many beach memories going back almost thirty years, and twenty more before the kids arrived on the scene! Pete, a retired teacher and coach worked three jobs in order to buy his dream beach house...in 1971, this dream became a reality! Come enjoy Pete's dream with us!

Erik Vandenakker purchased this cottage in 1971

Why Erik Vandenakker chose Balboa Peninsula

The property location is ideal for fun in the sun! Great public beach a block away with soft sand and friendly water. Close to all the activities and fun Newport is known for, plus the convenience of a very close grocery store (Pavillions), pubs, bank, dry cleaners and laundry mat. Beautiful sunsets too!

What makes this cottage unique

Exceptional service and hospitality. Let us know if you are celebrating something special, we will be happy to arrange for flowers, champagne or anything we can do. If you need a ride from John Wayne airport, just ask. If we can manage it, we will! You really do not need a car in Newport Beach. Check our reviews and see what some of guests have had to say!

Spectacular Valentines Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What an amazing property and location, with the nicest hosts one could ask for. Erik helped me start off the weekend right, even though we were flying in late he was there to greet us and let us in. Then, he had already done me the extra solid of arranging for flowers and a little bubbly waiting for the better half. I just had to ask and he made it happen!

The weather the whole weekend was gorgeous, and with a 2minute walk to the beach, you can guess where we spent most of our time. The beach cruisers included in the rental made most all of Newport accessible, either walking or biking down the boardwalk. Cannot ask for a better location, amenities or deal.

I highly recommend staying, and we wish we could have stayed longer. A weekend to a whole week or more would be super enjoyable, and I highly recommend staying here. Our first HomeAway experience was a smashing success!

Cannot wait to come back.

The best place in Newport Beach!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful beach house for two and a half months while I was in Newport for a summer internship. The best part of our summer was staying here. The place is absolutely beautiful and comes stocked with everything you can imagine. Coffee, beach towels, sun screen, magazines, and much much more. The inside is beautifully decorated. The bed is very comfortable and has lovely pottery barn furnishings and bedding. We had guests over who raved about the property. I could not imagine a more perfect place to stay and spend your holiday. Steps from the beach and you have beach umbrellas, beach chairs, paddle ball games, and beach cruisers all ready to go when you want. The host family is unbelievably kind. We loved getting to know them. They were extremely helpful and frequently brought treats. I could not have been more pleased with my stay, the only down side is having to leave. I highly highly recommend staying here, you will not be sorry.

What a great bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 3 month old daughter and I stayed here for 8 days in August of 2014 and we had an amazing time. The owners are the most wonderful and generous people and we really enjoyed our stay. The proximity to the beach, restaurants, grocery store & laundry mat are excellent - no need to drive anywhere!! It was a great home base for our little family as I have family and friends in the area. The BBQ was great, the kitchen was perfect for our meals, the patio was amazing, etc. etc. etc. We can't wait to stay again!

Sweet!

  • 5 of 5

We came down from the bay area for mother's day weekend and couldn't be happier. It was a sweet little cottage with all the extras we could have wanted: bikes with hand breaks, close to beach, beach chairs & towels, close to supermarket, close to the kids. The hosts were lovely and accommodating!

Awesome Cottage!!!! Awesome Owners!!!!

  • 5 of 5

As we sat on the patio, wine in hand and the sun shining on our faces…we had only just arrived and began to relax when I was already regretting our departure in a week. We could not have asked for a more magnificent cottage. The location was perfect for walking, biking, restaurants, shopping and traveling to nearby locations. The beach was a hop, skip and a jump from the cottage giving us the opportunity to meet the sun rise every morning on the beach. The owners were so accommodating and there for whatever we needed. The bicycles were also a great treat. The cottage is perfect in charm, cleanliness and comfort. I am so glad we stayed here! Carl and I sincerely want to thank the family for such a great experience. Please do not hesitate to choose this cottage for your vacation. You will not be disappointed.

Charming beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

My sister invited me to stay with her at this beach cottage in July. The accommodations were very nice, and the location was convenient to the beach, stores, and restaurants. We also appreciated the owners hospitality. We hope to stay at this beach cottage again. Thank you.
