About Matt Pentecost

I am a real estate broker and manage this property for my family. As a native southern-Calfornian, I love coming to the beach and know that you will too!

Matt Pentecost purchased this apartment in 1973

Why Matt Pentecost chose Newport Beach and Balboa Island Area

This property has belonged to my family for years and it has been my home-away-from-home as I was growing up. We still use the property when it is vacant since it is such a beautiful location with such great proximity to everything and provides all the amenities we could ask for.

What makes this apartment unique

The short walk to the beach has been wonderful as my family has created long-lasting memories of playing in the sand, surfing, and watching the sun set...only to return to a delicious bbq dinner on the patio.

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 10 days this trip. We have stayed at Matt's place many times now and will be spending many more. The location is fantastic. One house off the ocean and just across the street from the bay. Short walk to Newport pier & a little longer walk to Balboa pier. Balboa Island ferry is just a half mile down the road. 1/2 hour to Disneyland. So many good restaurants and all within walking distance. We can't wait till our next stay. Clean, well stocked, It has everything you need, even a grill. I had just retired so Matt even left us a bottle of wine to celebrate.

I have rented this property several times due to the great location. You can walk or bike to local restaurants, stores, Marina, park and 2 piers. It is clean and has every amentity needed. You can hear the ocean from the bedroom and the bed is very comfy. Matt takes care of everything and is so accommodating and easy to work with. This has become our families go to vacation spot.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect, so close to the beach and both Newport and Balboa piers. The furniture in the front room was a little dated but we were traveling with kids and they didn't seem to mind. The bedroom however has a really comfortable bed. The unit is well stocked with everything you need plus linens. The balcony has great views of the Bay and we enjoyed relaxing there. The communication with Matt was seamless, he was really easy to work with, had quick responses to our questions and great follow through. We would definitely rent again!

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row we have stayed at Matt's property and we just love it. It will be our vacation home from now on. I would recommend this home to everyone. Matt was just wonderful, he called to see if everything was ok and if we needed anything. He was very thorough. It is close to all the thing we needed. Looking forward to coming back next year!
