Peter and Barbara Swanberg, Pomona high school sweethearts..class of 1953, spent many spring breaks known as 'Bal Week', an iconic spring fling in Southern California from 1945- 1955 where So Cal high schoolers gathered at the fun zone for innocent fun and sun. After a serious college football run at Mt Sac and U of O (go Ducks!), the couple married, started a family and became professionals educators (Pete was also a football and wrestling coach) in San Gabriel Valley. This special time at Newport in their youth created a yearning for a beach house of their own. Through hard work and saving, Peter and Barbara fulfilled this dream when they purchased this duplex Property. The family lives on-site in back and rent the charming bungalow in the front. Today, Kim, their youngest, and Erik, her oldest, manage the VRBO rental, with the hope they give their guests the same special coastal memories once shared by Barbara and Peter.

Erik Vandenakker purchased this cottage in 1972

Peter and Barbara were Pomona High School sweethearts and the gang spent many spring and summer breaks having fun in the sun.

Exceptional service and hospitality. Let us know if you are celebrating something special, we have created a 'honeymoon suite' for a newlywed couple. It was great fun! We will be happy to arrange for flowers, champagne or anything we can do. If you need a ride from the airport, just ask. If we can manage it, we will. You really do not need a car in Newport Beach.

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.

Best Beach Bungalow

  • 5 of 5
As I am sitting on the front porch of this charming bungalow, I felt compelled to write my review early. My husband and I could not have asked for a better place to stay in Newport Beach. We parked our car the moment we arrived and never felt the need to get back in it. Everything is in walking or biking distance. The beach is a VERY short two blocks/two minute walk away, and the closest beach is amazing and is not overcrowded (as some of the other beaches in the area seemed to be), even on memorial day weekend. The owners are extremely accommodating and provided everything we needed for our stay, from beach towels to bicycles. The pictures barely do the beauty and charm of the place justice. The size of the home is perfection as you have so much more room than a hotel and so much more character, perfect for a romantic and relaxing getaway. We will definitely be back and will not hesitate to recommend this place to our friends and family!

My favorite beach house...

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is the perfect place for a visit to the beach. The location is excellent ... one block from the boardwalk, walking from all restaurants and bars, and two blocks from grocery shopping. The bed is extremely comfortable and the bathroom and kitchen are very clean. The homeowners are really nice and easy to work with... I would recommend this place for anyone!
