Unbelievable Home Directly on the Sand with 6-7 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14

Enjoy resort-style living in prestigious Newport Beach at this 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.

Families, Couples and Corporate Retreats only. No smoking, please.

About Heather

A Mother and daughter team own and have rented this home for over 10 years. Like any family-owned business, customer service is their top priority.

Heather purchased this house in 2000

Why Heather chose Newport Beach and Balboa Island Area

The location of this home is right on the Newport Beach sand, and in a prime location by 42nd Street. It is not located on the boardwalk, so you can walk out of your patio and 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

This house was everything and more than the internet site described. The home was extremely clean. Everything that we needed was available to us.

This was the most beautiful view I have ever seen from every floor.

We appreciate the family trusting us with their family albums and enjoyed all of the family pictues and possessions through out the home. We felt like we were at home not at a hotel by any means. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds in every room were.

I can't say enough about our stay at Beauty on the Beach. It was truly that. A BEAUTY..

Thank your so very much. We will come again...

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.

BEYOND Beauty at the Beach ~ HEAVENLY

  • 5 of 5

This home is a little bit of Heaven on the Beach.... beyond our expectations, perfect in every way from the fabulous furnishings to the personal touches. For us, comfortable beds are a must...these were better than any rental we've enjoyed in our many years of travels.

All attractions are with driviing distance, Catalina is a short boatride away and departs from Balboa, there are farmers markets, quaint shops, beautiful marine living everywhere and the sunsets, nothing can compare.

This is definitely a HOME away from home.... we were so fortunate that we found this property. Perhaps our travels will bring us back to this area and if they do, we would rent again from this lovely family without hesitation.

Perfect time at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this beachhouse! It was so nice to be able to sit on the beautiful patio and work, while, the kids played in the sand right in front of the house. Love that there is a bathroom right inside a side door for bathing the kids after playing in the waves. (EVERY bathroom has a tub/shower combo which is awesome!) My teens loved that they could surf right in front of the house in the morning. They also loved hanging out on the 3rd floor deck. The house is nicely laid out. The kitchen was completely stocked, had everything we needed. The large dining room table was perfect for setting up a puzzle for our stay there. The house is amazing! You definitely feel like you get to know the owner's family from all the pictures throughout the house. We had a great time, and can hardly wait to go back. We didn't spend much time out and about, as the kids were super happy to just play in the sand and water.

Fabulous beachhouse on the oceanfront

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from Europe to the USA and were very thrilled that this property was available at our travel dates. The owner is the sweetest person and we felt home immediately. We experienced a wonderful family stay at this fabulous clean spacious beachhouse. The accomodation was extraordinary with plenty of room for our family. We spent a relaxing, sunny yet active holiday at the beach and enjoyed lodging in this gorgeous beach house with private patio right on the sand. We enjoyed going out for breakfast and dinner at the local restaurants. Plenty of variety there.

We attended the sawdust festival, Disneyland, shopping,... We certainly do return here because there was just nothing that we did not enjoy about our stay in Newport Beach.
