Our spacious 4 bedroom 2 bath (upper) unit has long been a family favorite on the Newport Beach peninsula with return vacationers year after year. Located 1/2 block (4 houses) from the sand and boardwalk, this upper unit of our vacation duplex is within reach of the area's best beachfront and ocean recreation Newport Beach has to offer: great waves for the accomplished surfer, yet gentle shorelines for the youngest sandcastle builder.

The 4 bedroom 2 bathroom upstairs unit offers an ocean view from the balcony which has ample shaded seating and a barbeque grill for outdoor family meals. All four bedrooms contain wood-shutter window coverings, ceiling fans, and are spacious, CLEAN, and bright.

OUR LOWER 3 BEDROOM 2 BATHROOM UNIT CAN ALSO BE BOOKED SIMULTANEOUSLY, if available (refer to listing #32777).

We now offer beach cruiser bicycles (men's & women's styles) and kids' trailers (single & double) for rent at competitive prices for our guests. Pricing includes locks, helmets and delivery/pick-up of bikes. Contact us to make all the arrangements prior to your arrival, and we'll have them waiting for you at check-in. And even better: you don't have to return them anywhere upon your departure - we'll take care of everything!

Connie,

We had an absolutely wonderful time at your house. I greatly appreciate the opportunity and all of your help. The students enjoyed meeting you right before we left. I will highly recommend your home (and hope that one day I will be back!).

My husband and I both had the privilege of growing up on the Newport Beach peninsula - only 20 blocks away from each other! So when we first met in high school, 40 miles inland, and began dating years later, we both shared the dream of one day bringing our own family back to Newport to live in our favorite neighborhood. After 12 years of marriage, that dream came true, and our family began a permanent vacation! Our 4 kids share the wonderful memories of riding bikes down the oceanfront boardwalk to their 'school on the beach' everyday, accompanied by the sight of dolphins, and migrating California gray whales. Pretty magical!

Surfing, fishing, boating, and all things ocean, have been a major part of our family's lifestyle. It's hard to vacation elsewhere when we live in the best destination place possible!

We did discover the different kind of ocean beauty of Kauai, Hawaii, in 2005, where we also own a lovely family vacation home and have made it available as a vacation rental as well.

My husband Mike can be found locally surfing a variety of watercraft - shortboard, longboard, stand-up, or mat, just about everyday. My preference is the social connection with other moms stand-up paddling in Newport Harbor.

Our family has been involved with all aspects of managing vacation rentals since 1995, when our own home had a darling studio that we rented to friends. All four of our kids have grown up cleaning rentals as their summer job, and they are still a part of our family's hands-on crew that works year-round maintaining our family's 4 vacation properties on the Newport Peninsula.

We also have an ongoing Christian surf ministry, Surfing Expeditions & Adventures (SEA), that provides youth camps & programs in Baja, Mexico; Kauai, HI; and Southern California...it's another good excuse to stay close to the Pacific Ocean!

It's very gratifying for us to be able to serve other families and guests in our Newport vacation homes!

Connie Adnoff purchased this house in 2003

Our own family lived next door to our Favorite Family vacation home for almost 10 years. We now live a little over a mile away, but we still maintain a great connection with the neighbors on 35th Street, and truly believe it's one of the best beach locations in Newport, with its close proximity to the ocean and Newport Harbor, as well as shopping, eateries, recreational equipment rentals, and quick freeway access to John Wayne Airport (15 minutes), Disneyland (20 minutes) & Knott's Berry Farm (40 minutes). Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is a 45-60 minute drive.

Both of our families have a long history - since 1958 - of vacationing and subsequently owning homes in Newport Beach. My husband and I also spent our courtship enjoying bike rides along the boardwalk, sailing in the harbor, walking along the shore to our favorite restaurants, or simply watching the sun set behind Catalina Island. So it seemed like a natural fit for us to host other families, friends and guests in our favorite seaside playground where we have so many fond memories!

One of our greatest pleasures as a family, is to be able to 'do life' on foot or a bicycle! Errands to the grocery store, post office, or bank are always more enjoyable walking or biking. And all of our favorite local coffee houses, restaurants, galleries, and movie theaters are within a few blocks and easily accessed on foot or bicycle. Our goal has always been to avoid driving the car anywhere, and it sure makes parking a breeze! Probably our favorite times are when a big south swell hits our coastline, and we grab our bikes to ride to The Point or The Wedge to watch the extreme surfers (and professionals) strut their stuff on 20-30 foot waves! There just aren't very many destinations or cities that can boast accommodating such an easygoing, outdoor lifestyle year-round!

Our Favorite Family vacation home is situated near the beginning of the Boardwalk on 36th St., which extends several miles south, past the Newport Pier area, which is about 10 blocks away, the Balboa Pier area & Fun Zone, and finally to the Newport Harbor entrance. To the north, the bike path, 1/2 a block from this home, extends several miles to include wonderful rides along the ocean to Huntington Beach, Sunset Beach, Seal Beach and even Long Beach - all fun destinations without ever leaving the coastline!

Our Favorite Family vacation home is actually a duplex where both units can be reserved, when available, simultaneously, with the possibility of housing a total of 18 guests comfortably on the same property. It's a great pleasure to be able to host family reunions.

Because our family grew up here in Newport, and we frequent most of the favorite local establishments on a daily basis, we can confidently make recommendations for local businesses, and likewise enjoy the recommendations from others as vacation home owners/operators. We are well-known in the community and our reputation as good rental hosts is very important to us, especially within the surrounding neighborhood!

GREAT LOCATION AND VERY COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property for a bachelorette getaway weekend. This was a perfect location, within walking distance of the beach, grocery store, and restaurants. No rental car needed. The property was very clean and Connie was great to work with. Quick with email correspondence and very helpful.

PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We had a great family vacation with another family at this home. The location is fabulous! Only a few houses away from the beach. We stayed upstairs and it was great to have the patio to put our beach stuff and the picnic table provided good extra seating. We loved being able to walk down to the pier and visit the restaurants and the shops. I felt very safe in this neighborhood. Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: It's a delight for our family to facilitate special memories for our guests....just like we've experienced over the years with our friends and family! There's nothing better than a great day on the beach and in the water; a barbecue dinner on the patio, followed by a walk to the Newport Pier for ice cream; then back to the house for games or movies. It's simply the best, and everything is right within reach. We love it when other families feel the same way! Thanks for the wonderful report!

EXCELLENT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in this location for 5 nights with 7 high school students. We all really enjoyed our stay at this location. From my first inquiry to checking out, the owners were very helpful and easy to work with. We enjoyed meeting them as we were loading up to leave. I found their instructions for every detail very clear and helpful. The house was beautiful and family-friendly; the area was quiet; and the location was outstanding. Seeing the ocean from the balcony was really neat for people from Colorado! Our only problem was parking. We came in a 15-passenger van that would not fit in the garage so we usually had to park about a 10 minutes walk away. (A normal sized van would fit in the garage.) I have and will continue to highly recommend this location!

SPECIAL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Just enjoyed four nights at the beach apartment. We had rain, wind and sun and a very good time. Very close to the beach. Apartment is clean and very spacious. Everything you need is provided. This is my third time at the beach apartment. I can't wait to come back.

Owner's Response: We absolutely love to have our alums return over the years....it's a win/win situation for all of us! And that is the greatest compliment of all: knowing our repeat guests trust us enough to provide consistent quality every time they book with us. And the feeling is mutual! Besides, it's great fun to see familiar faces and get reacquainted with their families, when possible....especially seeing the kids grow up! We're grateful for the opportunity and the kind words!

FABULOUS FIND

  • 5 of 5
This property exceeded our expectations!!! The location was fabulous...so close to beach, boardwalk, stores, and restaurants. The house itself was very clean, plush carpeting, comfortable beds, and a kitchen with all the supplies we needed. The fact that it had queen and king size beds was perfect for our family, since our older children are now married. We also appreciated the extra accommodations for our grandchildren, which were clearly stated in the house supplies. As for the owners, they were beyond helpful!! They were very kind, friendly, and welcomed any questions I had...big or small. Their son also was wonderful to chat with and helped us get the additional supplies we needed for our stay, such as bikes and a canopy. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone! We absolutely had a great time and took home with us unforgettable memories. We thank the family for helping to make this all possible!!:)

FINALLY A CLEAN HOME!

  • 5 of 5
The owner of this home was so friendly and accommodating! Thanks Connie! My family had such a wonderful time. We have stayed in Newport Beach before and had a horrible experience. But thankfully we gave it another shot and are so glad we stayed at Connie's place. It was cleaned as if we were the first people to visit. The home was so close to the beach, and the weather was wonderful! We will definitely be back!
