About Erick & Holly Bickett
My wife and I love this home. Newport Beach is one of the nicest beaches on the planet. We both have grown up and lived in the area for most of our lives. We live in this home, 1/2 a year so it is not cared for like a typical high volume rental.
Erick & Holly Bickett purchased this House in 2013
Why Erick & Holly Bickett chose Balboa Peninsula
You will find out if you are lucky enough to stay here... Location - Location - Location Also this is the best swimming beach in Newport and our home is closer to the water than any area on the Newport Peninsula. The home is also one of the closest locations to the departure from Newport Beach. This means as comparison you can be to the freeways from our locations within 10 minutes where other locations it can go from 15 min to 45 min. Also, you are 3 blocks from Newport Harbor, just down the street(across the peninsula) Finally we are strolling close to 10-20 bars and restaurants, but not too close so that it is noisy.

This house is a serene search for simplicity.
This house is a serene search for simplicity. Staying here goes beyond the boundaries of ordinary living with incredibly beautiful views of the ocean, open sky and natural landscape. Not only is it equipped with a fire pit overlooking the sand, but the sliding glass doors allow you to have a constant view of the ocean waves with or without the breeze. The evenings were cool so we enjoyed the heat of the gas fireplace watching scary movies inside. After sun and sand-filled days we would lay on the couch, or fall horizontal in the massage chair and catch up on anything and everything binge-worthy, while still being able to people watch. With 3 bedrooms, all the kids and their friends fit comfortably accompanied by our two dogs as well. We spent a good portion of our trip dining outside, enjoying the view and having drinks all within a few block walking distance. The 27th street location took our quick getaway to an unparalleled level, and I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
The best oceanfront property in Newport
We stayed for the month of August 2018 and couldn't have been happier with the home and location. Erick and Holly were easy to contact and the property was very clean and well-maintained. If you want to be close to the ocean, this is the place for you. The open concept allows for ocean views throughout the main floor and master bedroom. For eating, restaurants as a short walk up the boardwalk, or stay at the home and enjoy the view while cooking in a kitchen that boasts top end appliances or the gas BBQ outside. They have large TVs throughout the home but we found ourselves most nights watching the sunset next to the gas fire pit on the porch. If this home fits your budget, book it! You won't be disappointed.
Great family time in Newport
What a great home! We spent the month of August there and had family and friends joins us and we had a fabulous time. We made many memories playing in the sand and water and just enjoying ourselves in this beautifully remolded home. The kitchen is a chefs kitchen and the bedrooms have plenty of closet and dresser space. If you are looking for the place to be in Newport Beach, then this is it.
Exceptional Experience Ocean Front Newport Beach
This is a beautiful, comfortable beach front home. The views are gorgeous. The patio sits directly on the boardwalk, which is utilized by walkers, joggers and bicyclists. I wasn't sure if I wanted the 'traffic' but it turned out to be great. There are periods of the day when it can get a bit crowded but it was also so much fun to interact. If you want a more isolated ocean front experience, the master bedroom balcony met that need perfectly. There are so many wonderful things to say about this house and the owners, that the only way I can convey my enthusiasm is to note that I intend to return on an annual basis. I generally don't like to repeat my vacation experiences, but this is one to return to again and again. Thank you so much Erick and Holly!
Panoramic Ocean Views from this Luxurious Home are Amazing!!
This review is being written on the patio of one of the most gorgeous homes on the beachfront in Newport Beach. Everyone should have the opportunity to stay in a house and setting this beautiful once in their lifetime…in our case, we hope to make it an annual event. Imagine cooking an exquisite meal in a gourmet kitchen, then enjoying it overlooking the Pacific Ocean (fabulous white-water view!) with a glass of wine in your hand, with the evening chill taken away by the warm dancing flames from a cobalt blue glass fire pit. Words cannot describe the amazing design elements: sculptures (mermaids, dolphins, sea turtles, etc.), custom marble fireplace, oversized marble showers, one with a steam shower, claw foot tub, remote-controlled awning/window shades, and totally integrated state-of-the-art entertainment system. The huge master bedroom suite offers spectacular panoramic ocean views along with sitting and built-in office areas. Comfortable, classy outdoor furniture also adorns the master bedroom’s balcony and the front terrace. The “wow” factor never ends here… this is paradise! AND, the owners are very personable!
One of our best vacations ever!
We would highly recommend this home for anybody who wants a great Newport Beach vacation. We were pleasantly surprised with how luxurious and well equipped the home was. The location is fantastic as you are at the end of the 55 freeway and within five minutes you're on your way to any place you want to go in orange county. The home is one of the closest to the water allowing us to watch our children play on the beach from the front patio. If you like people watching, you will love this place. We had one small issue with a doorknob in one of the rooms, but the owners were very responsive and took care of it immediately. All was well equipped with everything that you could ask for, much more than you typically see in a rental. If you choose to rent this home, you like we were will not be sorry but very pleased with your decision. Thank you to the Bicketts for a great vacation, and we will be back!
