Enjoy resort-style living in prestigious Newport Beach at this immaculate, contemporary oceanfront retreat. The high-end, family-friendly home is located DIRECTLY ON THE SAND, with no boardwalk and features three floors of endless ocean views. The comfortable 6-bedroom home sleeps 12-14 with 4 full bathrooms, making it perfect for executive retreats or family holidays. Parking for 4 cars. Relax on leather sectional facing a 55" flat-screen HDTV (satellite Direct TV service) with surround-sound and a Blu-Ray/DVD player. Prepare meals in a fully-furnished kitchen with granite countertops and breakfast bar. Two dining tables together seat up to 14. Also, grill or play cards on the spacious patio just steps from the surf. Beach chairs, towels, lounges, and umbrellas are provided to just sun bathe or catch a wave. An outdoor shower makes the post-beach clean-up a breeze.

A private haven awaits upstairs in the master suite, with DirectTV HDTV, walk-in closet, king-size bed and ocean-view balcony. The lounge area features a beamed ceiling and floor-to-ceiling is the perfect spot to curl up with a good book or work at the computer desk (WIFI, copier, fax, printer and phone provided). The spa-like master bath offers a serene retreat, with jetted tub, walk-in shower and first-class amenities.

All 6 bedrooms include ceiling fans, reading lights and large mirrored closets with built-ins (2 king beds, 4 queen beds, and a portable crib by request). A third-floor den converts, if needed, to a 7th bedroom with a queen-sized futon couch. A cozy children's hideaway with beanbag chairs and toys opens off the room, and TV cabinet is stocked with kid-friendly games and DVDs.

The third-floor rooftop deck lets you bask in your lounge chairs at the stunning panorama of crashing waves and sparkling coastline, and at night offers a view of Disneyland's spectacular fireworks.

We are located 5 minutes from top-rated Hoag Hospital, 10 minutes from world-class shopping at South Coast Plaza and 20 minutes from Disneyland Resort.

About Heather

A mother and daughter team own and have rented this home for over 15 years. Like any good family-owned business, customer service is their top priority.

Heather purchased this house in 2000

Why Heather chose Balboa Peninsula

The location of this home is right on the Newport Beach sand, and in a prime location by 42nd Street. It is not located with the boardwalk in front of the home, so you can walk out of your patio and directly onto the sand. We are 1 mile from Hoag Hospital for those who undergo treatments. We have the most bedrooms and bathrooms of any oceanfront luxury rental home in Newport Beach.

What makes this house unique

There are very few places in the world like this home, where you can sit on the patio or on the rooftop deck and have a clear view of the sun setting over the pacific. The master bedroom delivers the perfect beachfront get-away with breathtaking views of the Pacific. Relax in comfort in this elegant retreat featuring a king bed, spa-like master bath with jetted tub, gas fireplace, cozy reading nook and adjacent computer desk. This home has the unique combination of luxury and beachfront convenience.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Beautiful house with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

I brought in 3 other couples for my husbands surprise 50th birthday getaway. They, as I, were delighted with the house and loved everything about it. We picked this place because it looked great, had a true walk-out onto the beach, and was a whole house (not just one floor). Bonus: parking for 3-4 vehicles!

We already want to go back!

I brought my wife and kids here for my wife's birthday. We stayed for 5 days and had such an amazing time! We loved that it was located right on the beach and the house was nice and clean when we arrived. Betty and Heather were so easy and great to work with. Nobody wanted to leave! We will definitely come back!

Beauty on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at "Beauty on the Beach." The house was well maintained and located perfectly right on the beach. We are still missing the sunsets and can't wait to get back.

We rented this home for one week and loved it! Family members included two small children under 6. Being right on the beach was phenomenal for all of us, especially our grandchildren. The house has everything you could need and the number of bedrooms is genuinely surprising. The master bedroom is HUGE and our two small grandchildren loved playing in the room first thing in the morning. The loft was an added bonus room with a secret cubby space that the kids enjoyed playing in. Owners were great to deal with and we had no issues at all. We also discovered the best sushi restaurant we have ever been to, called San Shi Go. The sushi chef encouraged us to ignore the menu and let him decide. I don't know how we will ever go back to "regular sushi" again. All in all, a fantastic week despite the inclement weather and highly recommend this home!

The home was amazing

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was accurate and the layout was great for entertaining. The property was clean and well-maintained. My sisters, parents and cousins all loved the place. When we come out to California again we will definitely rent this home. The view from the third floor is great for whale watching. The owner was great with directions and any questions we had. We would recommend this home to our family and friends. So many of the homes we looked at had double beds or bunk beds and this home had nice queen and king beds in all the rooms. All the beds and pillows were so nice and comfy.
