Overview

Balboa Peninsula House Rental Photos and Description

Upgraded & Super Clean, 3 BD/2 BA, a "Home away from Home", Pride in Ownership

CONGRATULATIONS! You have found a TRUE GEM amongst the many Newport Beach vacation rentals! Available year-round as a weekly/short-term vacation rental, and OWNER MANAGED, the RECENTLY REMODELED/CONTINUALLY UPGRADED 'Sandcastle' is one of the nicest - and certainly cleanest and well maintained - rentals in the area! For the discriminating SMALLER family of SEVEN or less, we offer a great beach vacation experience in a lovely, warm and comfortable home on the Newport Beach Peninsula.

With so many Real Estate Agency-Managed rentals on this site these days, we invite you to deal with us as OWNERS/Managers for the very best personal service only an Owner can provide! Read our reviews, what other guests have to say about us.

Located one house off the beach, and on a corner location, both the INTERIOR and EXTERIOR of the 'SANDCASTLE' were completely UPGRADED recently, to include new kitchen cabinetry & countertop, new bathroom cabinetry/countertops/fixtures, new tile shower in Master bath, a new leather sofa, new beds throughout, double pane windows and sliding doors (and blinds), new mirror sliding closet doors, new cabinetry throughout the unit, a flat screen TV and new artwork. On the OUTSIDE of the house, we've recently redone our stucco for a smooth look, adding architectural features including stone, korbels and shutters. It was wonderful before, and it's even more fabulous now!

The 'Sandcastle' is a 'HOME AWAY FROM HOME', with very comfortable furniture and a well stocked kitchen, with HDTV (with Satellite TV/75 free premium movie channels) in the main room - and another flatscreen TV in the master bedroom...Plus there's a terrific large front patio with table, chairs, umbrella, gas barbecue, and a partial view of the beach, that extends the living room to the outside of this downstairs Duplex unit.

The 'Sandcastle' is decorated in a 'beachy' style, with very nice artwork and colorful accessories. You can be ready to start vacationing from the minute you walk in the front door.

We cater to smaller families, maximum SEVEN overnight guests (adults and children combined), looking for something 'nicer than the rest'. We don't accommodate large groups or gatherings, as we have a maximum of TEN (overnight and daytime guests combined) on the property at any time...one of the ways we are able to keep the 'Sandcastle' in the lovely condition it's in! We do sleep 7 in beds:

- Master Bedroom: California King bed, armoire with TV (with satellite/premium channels), large closet, and adjoining bathroom

- Bedroom #2: Queen bed and dresser

- Bedroom #3: both a Double and Twin bed and dresser

- A hall bath accommodates Bedrooms #2 and #3

- and we do have a pull out twin sleeper chair/bed in the main room

Pillows, comforters, mattress pads are furnished, and now bed linens and towels also will be included in our standard Cleaning and Linens Fee.

Enjoy a ground floor location and don't be concerned about who's staying upstairs...because it's just the two of us (Don't worry though, we stay out of your way; You'll hardly know we're around...unless you need us for something!) Since it's our house as well, we keep it looking it's best - all the time!

SORRY, but we have a strict NO PETS policy. Not inside the house, nor on the front patio either.

Located at Seashore Drive & 35th Street, we're one house off the boardwalk/sand/beach, and you should know that in this area, the distance between boardwalk and ocean is quite narrow (a real positive, very close), vs some other areas where the sand is 3x what it is by us. So that equates to you being very close to the surf at 35th Street, easy and quick to get from the house to the water.

Also you're a short 10 minute walk to the Newport Pier and a good choice of restaurants; close enough to the hustle and bustle of activity surrounding the Pier, yet enough away to enjoy a book peacefully on the patio.

You're a short drive or bike ride to the Newport Beach Fun Zone, whale watching tours, boat rentals, wonderful shopping, etc. You're also not too far for a day's excursion to other great Southern California attractions such as Disneyland and the California Adventure Park, Knotts Berry Farm, Universal Studios, Hollywood, San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park, Legoland, and more!

If you're into swimming, surfing, or body boarding, take no more than 30 steps from your front door onto the white sand beach down to the awesome surf that has consistently ranked Newport Beach as one of the top beaches in Southern California. And if you have little ones, the shore is gently sloped, so they can easily get their feet wet and play in the shallow water without being overcome with the waves. When you return to the house, rinse off under our outdoor tile sand shower - or in our new Laundry room shower.

HOW TO GET OUR BEST PRICE?

- Email us first (thru this site) before you put in an automated "Reservation Request" - for starters. As of April, HA/VRBO/Vacation Rentals has added a new SERVICE FEE (of 4-11% they've said) - since they've become part of Expedia, which you'll see WHEN YOU ASK FOR A QUOTE IN THEIR SYSTEM. If you are willing to go outside the HA Payments program and book directly with us, you can AVOID THIS SERVICE FEE.

- Secondly, we quote the discounted CASH price. However should you choose to pay by CREDIT CARD - and outside of HA Payments, there will be just a 3% CC fee - of the total price, and we can do it through PayPal. PayPal charges us 3% (as does HA/VRBO) when you pay by CC, so we must pass on that cost. Thru HA payments, you pay their service (booking fee) and we still have to pass along the 3% CC fee they charge us.

- For years we've taken only a check (or cash) to secure your dates however we realize these days, some people want their miles or points from their CC, so we can accommodate you that way also. In 15 years of doing this, we've had no issues at all!

- So if possible to KEEP YOUR COSTS DOWN, do consider payment via check! But whatever works for you, we can accommodate you!

We are honest and communicative Owners, and we maintain high standards in everything we do! As your hosts and proprietors Bill and Janice, we live in the upstairs unit of the Duplex, and we're about excellence in everything we do! Your vacation home will be ready and waiting for your arrival - impeccably clean with a welcome bottle of wine to start your vacation right! There's a book of 'Things to Do' with sights and restaurants we recommend, and we're happy to assist with suggestions to make your vacation truly memorable. Since it's our home too, the property - inside and out, upstairs and downstairs - is so very well maintained.

Just 15 minutes from Santa Ana/Orange City airport and 50 miles south of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), a vacation at the 'Sandcastle,' experiencing our hospitality and Newport Beach lifestyle, will have you returning year after year!

HINT: If a more relaxed and quiet vacation is what you're looking for...a well kept secret is that September and October are fabulous, due to the great weather and lessened number of tourists.

About Janice and Bill, Owners/Managers (Wife & Husband)

We're Bill & Janice and we own the 'Sandcastle', and live in the Upstairs unit of this Duplex while renting the Downstairs unit as our Vacation Rental. We're ex-Corporate Executives (now retired) and we've come to enjoy the better things in life - and if you do too, perhaps this is the vacation home you've been looking for! We love to travel, throughout the US and internationally, and here we are in Ravelli Italy enjoying lunch (and on the International front, we've traveled extensively and have been to China, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Philippines, Europe, Argentina, India, Australia, New Zealand, India and Africa in the last few years).

The 'Sandcastle' is available all YEAR ROUND as a weekly/short term rental, as we do not choose to rent the winter months to college kids - as so many people do in our area - insuring that it is available, and in beautiful condition all year through! During non holiday weeks and in our off-season, we'll even rent the 'Sandcastle' for shorter stays of 3 nights or more. We take a lot of pride in the 'Sandcastle' and do enjoy that our guests appreciate staying in such a comfortable and clean 'home away from home'. We aim to be your go-to Newport Beach vacation home; We have many returning guests, and we hope you'll become a satisfied guest too!

Janice and Bill, Owners/Managers (Wife & Husband) purchased this house in 2000

Why Janice and Bill, Owners/Managers (Wife & Husband) chose Newport Beach and Balboa Island Area

The general area is fantastic. The white sand beach and ocean, virtually outside our door/30 steps away, is beautiful. Our location, a ten minute walk on the boardwalk to the Newport Pier, is perfect; It's close enough if you want the hubbub of activity there, but enough away to quietly enjoy a book on the front patio.

It's an outdoor lifestyle here at the beach, and we ride our bikes alot, walk/run, grab a beach chair and settle into relaxation on the beach, rent a Duffy boat and cruise around the Newport Harbor. And there's so much to do in the area...There's great shopping and an abundance of both casual and upscale restaurants, and theme parks (Disneyland etc) and sights for our visitors to keep busy.

No matter where we travel to (and we've been around the World), we can't imagine living anywhere else, so it's a pleasure to have guests stay at our vacation home and enjoy all that we enjoy!

What makes this house unique

We have lived on the Peninsula for 20+ years, and prior to this home, we lived just a few blocks away. It's a great area! We purchased this Duplex to (a) enjoy the fantastic beach and general area ourselves - as we live in the Upstairs unit - but mostly stay out of your way, and (b) provide a vacation rental - Downstairs - that we could oversee ourselves, offering something 'better than the rest', with more personal service. We're available from the time you book until the time you arrive, to assist with any questions or needs you have. We know the area so very well and you can feel comfortable knowing that we can assist with whatever special request you have! (Or keep to ourselves during your stay, if that's what you prefer:-)

We love to travel ourselves, and our aim is to provide MORE to our guests in terms of a clean and comfortable, nicely decorated, well maintained rental, and we modeled it after what we most enjoy - and expect - when we travel. Frankly, when we travel, we like to have - as an example - a choice of pillows, nice wine glasses, sharp knives, TV pay per view movies at no charge, an extra tank of propane should it run out, a washer/dryer of our own to use, bedding that smells - and is - fresh and clean, local restaurant recommendations...some of the many basics and extras that we offer as Owner/Managers of our beach vacation home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love the Sandcastle! You have a beautiful home that is just perfect for those of us who enjoy the beach and like to feel "at home". We were able to relax and play, which was just what we needed. We captured some great beach photos, especially the sunsets. We spent family time which means so much to us, especially as our kids get older. Bob's Mom & Aunt used to bring the kids and rent a beach house on 30th Street. These are especially fond memories for him. Getting to relive it again for the first time has meant so much to him. I love your decorations! They are all different and fun. Janice, keep collecting! It brings a personal charm to the house:-) Thank you for an incredible week! We made memories and had a great time!

5-STAR Beach Rental-We Can't Stay Away!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Sandcastle is a beautiful beach rental in Newport Beach! We have returned here for several years now and have never been disappointed. The location is excellent, just steps to the sand. Just off the boardwalk to avoid all the foot traffic so you can really enjoy the beautiful patio setting with views of the ocean. The pictures really do not do this home justice. Our first visit here we came loaded with cleaning supplies ready to work. We were shocked to find the home so clean and orderly, we even felt comfortable to go barefoot, which we NEVER do in hotels or rentals! We were able to just unpack and start enjoying our vacation, which is exactly what we have done every year at this property. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you would need to prepare and serve a meal out on the patio (you will also find a very nice BBQ grill) or at the large dining table inside. The living room has a very large leather sectional, as well as a leather loveseat, plenty of seating! You will also find a large screen TV with all your favorite channels available. The 3 bedrooms are all well equipped with bedding, dressers, fans, alarm clocks and large closets stocked with hangers. The master bedroom has its own bath attached. All your linens are provided, as well as extra pillows and beach towels. You will also find a closet loaded with beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, etc! Bill and Janice really have thought of everything! We love the fact that they are just steps away if we ever needed anything, yet they give you all the privacy you would expect. They are always eager to visit with us and catch up on what's been going on in our lives since our last visit and give us updates on any new restaurants we should visit or events that may be happening during our stay. This home is walking distance to everything you could possibly need; grocery stores, restaurants, bike rentals, shopping and more. You will be just a fun bike ride away from the famous "Wedge" where you can witness some very skilled surfers in action! You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay at the Sandcastle!

Best vacation home we've ever rented!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a great find! We have rented in the area before, but this house is now our favorite beach house -by far! The house itself was beautiful and comfortable, the pictures hardly do it justice. The beach was just steps away and the waves were great for boogey boarding. We enjoyed the new BBQ and just sitting out on the patio, having dinner, or reading a book or just relaxing. It was well stocked with everything we needed, from the extra pillows to the blender to the free movie channels and even a little safe to lock our valuables. The owners have really thought of everything, and were very easy to deal with. They greeted us upon arrival, but then we didn't see them but once or twice briefly, and they left a few friendly notes with suggestions of what to do in town on our front door. Plus they have a great book that gave us ideas of things to do (if we could tear ourselves away from the house and beach) and local restaurants. We rented bikes nearby, and just have a wonderful vacation. We definitely recommend this lovely home, and we plan to come back for a future stay. Thank you Bill & Janice for making our visit so special! We are so glad we found you and your lovely home!

Perfect Beach Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy we chose the Sandcastle for a family get together which included two small grandchildren to keep busy. From the time we booked until our departure it couldn't of been a more enjoyable experience. Janice & Bill are wonderful OwnerManagers and so easy to deal with. The property is lovely. It is extremely clean and very comfortable (and I'm particular on

cleanliness!). It is steps away from the beach, a playground nearby (both great for the children) and walking distance to a nice grocery store and restaurants. Janice & Bill do live upstairs and you would never know they are around except for the nice touches that would pop up by the front door unexpectedly. Thank you! We concluded this is one of our best stays together so far. We can't thank you enough for making it so enjoyable. We look forward to staying again when in the area.

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4 days recently.Normally I do not sleep anywhere I go but I did here. The house is nicely furnished and very very clean. It is just steps from the ocean too.Great location. Janice and Bill were around to greet us and to let us know if we needed anything to ask. We were a family of 5 and we each had our own space to spread out. I would for sure stay here again if we are ever in the area.

A+ 5-STAR - Perfect place to stay - Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

I was in town from Minneapolis to perform at a jazz club and decided to rent a beach house along with my wife and my parents who were also in town with me to catch my show. We were all absolutely blown away by this house! It was so clean, had all of the great amenities and was the perfect location - you can see the beach/ocean from the front patio. They had detailed instructions for everything including a huge book of attractions and places to eat - they really go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. All 3 rooms were very spacious, the kitchen was awesome, the living room was so comfortable and the outside patio was just amazing! The owner's were the nicest people as well - they stopped down to meet us and to ask if we needed anything, but also did not disturb us (even though they totally could have, we are very social people). They even came to my show which was so cool. Next time I come back to the L.A. area, this is where I will be staying! I can't thank them enough for making our stay a very enjoyable experience!

Owner's Response: Danny, I cannot believe that I never posted a response to your fabulous review of our vacation home! Such an oversight on my part! Needless to say, we so enjoyed meeting you, and we REALLY ENJOYED seeing you in concert at Spaghettini's in Seal Beach. What a terrific show you put on! We listen to your CD regularly now too. Such a nice family - and talented too! Thanks for choosing our "Sandcastle" for your stay in the area - and we do hope we'll see you again, either at our vacation home, or on stage! Best, Janice & Bill

Good space and good location

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 adults and 3 small children and the condo was perfect for our group. The unit was well equipped and in excellent condition. The beach was nearby and fun for all. Shopping and restaurants were within walking distance, although we ate a number of meals in the unit. The condo's parking space is small and the street parking is crowded.

Owner's Response: Fred, so nice to have you and your family here for Spring Break; Glad you found the house comfortable. Yes, we live in close quarters here at the beach (nothing like I imagine you have in Minnesota!) and parking is at a premium. It's the trade-off I guess for being steps from the sand and being able to enjoy the smell of ocean breezes...and a smaller vehicle is always a good choice with our parking space and street parking nearby. Glad you enjoyed our neighborhood too. We love the area and we thank you for choosing the "Sandcastle" for your March visit! Janice & Bill

It's a great area for bike riding (mostly flat), so bring your bikes or you can rent them nearby (by the hour/day/week)...and we have an outside area where you can lock them up (so please bring a lock:-).

Notes:
As Owner/Managers, we personally work hard to make sure you have a great vacation - and try to anticipate anything you'd need! And since we live in the Upstairs of the Duplex - and it's our house too, we keep it really lovely, inside and outside, upstairs and downstairs! It's decorated with very nice artwork and furnishings, much like we have in our own home. There's an outdoor sand shower so you can keep the inside sand-free, and a washer/dryer just for your use. You can bring bikes or rent them nearby, and we have a place outside for you to lock them up (bring a lock!). Ipod player in Living Room (also plays CDs). We're always doing 'something' around the house, upgrading, buying new things, making it even nicer! Be one of our satisfied guests and come and enjoy a stay here at the 'Sandcastle'!
