Tucked in the bay of Newport Beach, the pretty and small Newport Island is the location of our family beach house. The neighborhood is uniquely quiet and family-oriented, you'd never know that the beach and tourist attractions are only a stroll away!
Once you've crossed the tiny bridge (from the busy Pacific Coast Highway)you'll find yourself on the secluded Newport Island. Our furnished home is ideally located bayfront, with 3 of the 4 bedrooms overlooking the water. The upstairs contains the 4 cozy bedrooms and 2 of the bathrooms. You'll find the rest of the house downstairs on the main level. Our home has a full-kitchen, living room with fireplace, dining room, pool-table room, and a comfy sitting room with some board games and then a bathroom. The full-size pool table is a new addition to our home- it's sure to bring tons of enjoyment to your stay. The kitchen, living room and dining room all are facing the water and give a very open, ocean feel.
You could spend the entire day not even leaving the house but basking in the sun on the water-facing brick patio. The living room sliding doors open to this patio, our favorite location of all. Here we have a sociable out-door bar area, complete with both a gas BBQ and a gas fire pit. You can share a drink around the table or recline in a lounge chair, all maximizing the enjoyment of the water rippling at the patio edge.
Not to forget that there is a 2-car garage for convenient parking. In less than a 5 minute walk you will find the beach, a park with children's swings, or a basketball court. Add another 5 minutes and you can walk to bike rentals, video rentals, restaurants. Just a little bit further and you will find the famous and historical Pavillion, the beautiful Newport and Balboa piers, shopping, more great restaurants, the Fun Zone and the Wedge. If you'd like to experience the rest of the OC, you can drive to enjoy couture and first-class shopping at South Coast Plaza and Fashion Island, spend time with the artists and MTV TV Stars in artsy Laguna Beach, or head inland to Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm or the Angel's Stadium. So much at your fingertips!!

WE are a couple who are just finishing the high school experience with our youngest daughter. WE live in upper newport beach off of the bay and enjoy going down to the beach house when it is available. Otherwise we do a lot of hiking and biking, gardening and community service. Jeff enjoys boating a lot too. I am more into yoga, gardens and people!
The Owner purchased this house in 2000
It is a most beautiful area, this home is right on the bay and we could go right out into the water on kayak or sailboat. It is also on a quiet really nice island off of the main beach area that is quiet and calm in contrast to the crazy beach scene.
On the bay water; bbqing on the beautiful brick patio on the water; walking 4 blocks to a beautiful popular but not as crowded as near the pier beach; great restaurants nearby even walking distance; nice neighbors
