About Len

We have always loved our area of Newport. Our location can't be beat since you can enjoy a walk down to the pier, yet be able to come back to a relaxing, quiet home in the evening....which is located just steps to the sand!

This area is quite impressive compared to the typical vacation rentals that often have to endure loud evening parties and slow peninsula traffic.

Our goal is to make our property a very special place for our guests, so that you will go home with your own wonderful memories of our place and your stay here.

We want to make sure your stay here is fantastic so you will want to come back again and again!

Len purchased this condo in 1980

Why Len chose Newport Beach and Balboa Island Area

Location! Avoid the peninsula traffic with the easy access to PCH. It is also super close to one of the best surfing spots in the country.

Steps to sand and free recreational amenities at the park

Steps to neighborhood park with free tennis & handball courts.

Easy access to PCH, no worries about getting stuck in peninsula traffic during the summer! Visit Disneyland in about 30 minutes.

Famous surf area (to watch competitions and amazing surfers).

Air conditioning units in each bedroom

What makes this condo unique

The exterior has been remodeled and looks more Tuscany than 'beachy'. The upstairs unit is flooded with natural light and the layout is very comfortable. There is ample parking for 2 cars (each unit). All this (and more) has made this place a keeper!

We provide starter supplies and fully stocked kitchen. We also provide 2 older beach cruisers, tennis rackets/balls, 4 beach chairs, umbrella and games. You'll also enjoy having a 3 burner Weber gas barbeque on the deck/balcony, washer/dryer inside, full size foosball table, personal security code entry, premium cable channels, dvds, blu ray, etc. and we typically have your favorite cool drinks upon arrival.

Wonderful - as always!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in July this summer for our 3rd time at this home. As always, it was very clean and perfectly kept. We love the location on the very quiet side of Newport Beach. The one minute walk to the beach is very convenient. We've even gotten to know some of the permanent neighbors over the years. The owners of the home are incredibly kind and have always been great to work with. They obviously take pride in the home and continue to upgrade appliances and have kept the place immaculate. We will definitely continue to stay here! Thanks for another great week Len!

clean and family friendly

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this property. It was our first time renting and we had a great experience. It was extremely convenient having a place to park. We also appreciated the washer and dryer, as we have 6 people in our family. Our kids had a great time using the bikes and boogie boards.

The owner was always quick to respond if we had any questions. We would definitely stay there again sometime.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful week at Newport - Tennis, biking, surfing, foosball and relaxation at a clean home next to the beach. Kids did not want to leave - Only minor issues were that the master bed was softer then our ideal, and the renovation noises of the apartment building next door. Owners were friendly and extremely responsive. We will definitely keep this place in mind for next year.

My family and I rented this property for our summer vacation at Newport. The owners were very responsive when setting up our trip and had everything ready for us when we arrived. They have obviously take great pride in making this upper-floor unit special. The place was very clean and well kept, beautifully decorated and exactly what we had hoped for when we chose it online.

The location is on the quiet end of Newport beach. It's close enough to the shops and restaurants for easy access but tucked in a quiet little section away from the chaos. The beach is AMAZING and just a few minutes walk from the property. There is a park one minute walk away with basketball courts, tennis, etc... but all our kids wanted to do was play on the beach every day.

We liked the place so much that we've already booked it again for next summer!

Thanksgiving holiday

  • 5 of 5

We lucked out finding this comfortable home-away-from-home which was super close to the beautiful beach. The location couldn't have been better for us since we hosted Thanksgiving dinner for family and friends who lived nearby, and now we're all spoiled for Thanksgiving expecting to repeat this one. Len, the owner, was friendly and gracious throughout the rental process and answered any questions we had throughout our stay. She also left us a roaster oven which was easier to clean than the oven and the turkey came out perfectly done. As other people noted, basic kitchen supplies were provided including coffee beans to get us going if the ocean air didn't suffice. The living room futon/sofa/loveseats and the beds were comfy, and we easily accommodated 8 for dinner. Were we sorry to leave this place? You bet. We shall keep it in mind for next year.

Easy walk to beach, quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The owners were there when we arrived and were very helpful, even found a basketball for our son when they found out he was interested in the basketball court nearby. The beach was an easy 3 minute walk away and there were beach chairs and 2 boogie boards provided as well as umbrellas. We found the waves rougher for boogie boarding than at the beach by the pier but the positive thing is that the crowds are much less at this end of the beach. The apartment was very well stocked (the best we have experienced) with coffee, drinks, spices and washing detergents. The towels provided were of good quality. We found the fans were all we needed to keep us cool but did not spend any afternoons in the apartment. Although the owners are in the suite below, they were not there during the week so we did not feel cramped by their presence.

Car: recommended

RELAXING AREA! This area is very relaxing as it is is not in the area where there is a lot of loud partying. Our property is only two houses to the sand and the location is great! You will avoid the traffic jams typical of summer days further down the peninsula because our place provides easy access to Pacific Coast Hwy.

This area is also considered a world famous surf competition area.

Steps to West Newport Park with free tennis/handball courts, and children's playground.
