About matina soutsos

I was born and raised in California and I am very lucky to own a beach house just 1/2 a block from the beach. I currently live in Denver, Colorado, but I do visit my home quite often.

matina soutsos purchased this house in 2000

I designed this property so that kids and adults can enjoy their vacation. The location is fabulous. Walk to bars, restaurants, beach and shopping. The sunsets are intoxicating.

Wonderful place for a family get together!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a more perfect location. This comfy and utterly perfect house, is just half a block from the beach. Having NO major streets to cross made it ideal for us with our two young granddaughters. The walk/bike path at the end of the street which runs along the sand, provided a fantastic place to walk each morning. Of course we spent a large portion of everyday on the beach...a real joy for our Denver family members! Having sand toys, boogie boards, bikes and beach towels available for us at the house was great! An added bonus was a a garage space for our car since parking is really at a premium in Newport. We look forward to using this wonderful property again in the future.

A Beach House You Can Count On

  • 5 of 5

Always in search for a beach house in Newport Beach that checks ALL the boxes!

Of course we have never found a house that checks all of the boxes, but ~ man oh man ~ this one has most. Proximity! Price! Layout and style and comfort! Best yet it is stocked with linens and items needed for the beach! Just roll in with your clothes. It is incredible to see a landlord who actually knows and understands what is important to a tenant! Thanks for a great experience!

Excellent rental property

  • 5 of 5

The property was absolutely amazing. The location was excellent with it being half a block to the beach and a block away from Newport Pier. The interior is modern and contains all the amenities we wanted from towels and toiletries to cooking spices. It is very clean and the descriptions on this website are accurate. The transaction with the owner was very professional and she was even happy to give suggestions for great places to eat around the neighbourhood. I highly recommend this property!

Amazing location, great property

  • 5 of 5

This property and communication with the owner was a perfect compliment to our family vacation at the beach. Very impressed with the property; very clean, remodeled, and provided everything we needed while we stayed. Walking distance to all the best spots near Newport Pier, great restaurants and beaches. We can't wait to stay again. Thank you!

Best Rental Experiernce

  • 5 of 5

This house is the definition of perfect! It's steps from the beach and within walking distance to everything. I took my in laws and kids and everyone had a blast. I was concerned about noise with a newborn, but the neighbors were great and we had no issues. The house literally has EVERYTHING. All we had to do was show up with clothes. We went grocery shopping and were able to make a few meals at home. It was really nice having a brand new washer and dryer in the house as well. We usually have to rent bikes, but this one came with 5 bikes and locks. Having beach towels, chairs and umbrellas provided also saved us a ton of time and space in our truck. The owner was wonderful to work with and responded very quickly. We will definitely be back later this year or next.

We could not be happier with our stay at Matina's beach house. Just steps to the sand and a short walk to the boardwalk shops. There were 8 of us and we had plenty of space. We had brought an air mattress just in case however we didn't need it. It was a bit chilly during our stay so we didn't use any of the beach supplies but there is a large assortment of them. Matina was wonderful to work with, she answered all my many questions and her downstairs tenant is very nice as well. We are already talking about going back when it is a little warmer.
