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.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is within walking and biking distance of many restaurants, shopping and both piers. Matt always takes good care of us. We always enjoy our stay.

Great stay, near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Mat's place, very close to the beach, no problem with parking, all the amenities. Good for a family of 4-6 or group of friends looking to relax on the nice Balboa beach. Terrace and BBQ were also great. There is no cutting board, so not bad to buy.

Great Place for Familes!

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent beach rental for my family. It is steps from the sand, but there are other pluses as well. I grew up in NB and am very aware of the bonus of certain locations. This property is directly across the street from the new Marina Recreation Facility. There is a great 'Baby Beach' here for little kids and weak swimmers. You can rent a stand up paddle board that is right on the sand - not carry one around. Just hop on and go.

The area to the north of the Pier can get packed because of the huge parking lot there. However, it's nice and quiet with plenty of space on the beach area in front of the apartment because the parking is limited. You are still a short walk to the restaurants, bars and fun area without being right in the middle of it!

You can quite literally do your grocery shopping for the time you're here, then not move your car again once you've parked near the apartment. Everything except a major grocery store is withing easy walking distance. (There a small market one block away where you can find basics.)

We also loved the HUGE deck. We had breakfast outside every morning and several other meals there.

In short, a great place for a family beach vacation.

Great place and great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at Matt's Balboa apartment and we love it! Everything is always very clean and well stocked. Matt is super friendly and very accommodating. We feel right at home and have everything we need! You can't beat the location - close to all the restaurants, steps from the beach and across the street from the marina park. It's no problem to run back from the beach to grab a drink or a snack which is great with kids! The view from the deck is terrific - a great place for happy hours and BBQs. We come down to Newport every summer for a family reunion and we rent 4 houses now. This place is perfect for our family and makes it easy to meet up with everyone. We can't wait to come back again next year!

Welcoming and close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! Matt was very hospitable and welcoming. He greeted us upon arrival and even helped us bring some of our stuff up to the apartment! He was available if needed. The apartment itself was open and the bed in the room very comfortable. The location is amazing. Walking distance to a bunch of restaurants, bars and the pier at 21st. It's also super close to the beach! Thanks for the great stay.
