Why Steve chose Balboa Peninsula

We absolutely love the life in very specific and traditional area of Newport Beach and especially on the Balboa Peninsula. Where every street has it's own unique character and every block its own personality.

As good friendly people, this prime location is simply perfect for us, our friends, our family and for the 'little surf grom' children. Oh yeah, we are definitely positive you'll agree and perhaps come to appreciate by sharing in its discovery.

What makes this house unique

The super prime location of The Newport Family Peninsula Beach House is situated within reach of all things beach(sand and sun), harbor(sailing), channel(paddle boarding), island(kayaking), parks(playgrounds) and recreation(use your imagination.)

It is a matter of fact, that we provide the kind of beach house we'd prefer. It is a fact that every last amenity has been carefully thought out. Its is a fact that your decision to stay at the Newport Family Peninsula Beach House is the best one.

While not perfect, yet perfectly accommodating... we consistently aim to meet your imagined stay and do our best to help you surpass those expectations. It's the Newport Family Peninsula Beach House that provides the canvas and its the wonderful families year after year that truly make it so colorful to be in Newport Beach during the summertime or any time of the year.

Everything was as described, and we'll definately be back.

  • 5 of 5

Memories are powerful family possessions that profoundly link hearts together. The place seemed designed for good memories (as well as enjoying those that come as surprises.) We really liked how the beach house was more beach bohemian and casual. The roof deck was our morning coffee spot. The balcony our evening gathering area. All was splendid throughout our stay. Hot showers with wonderful water pressure after each sandy and salty beach days were just wonderful. All the beds were comfortable and so much was provided it made our 10 person trip easy. We had 3 cars but parking was found all around and there is even free parking at meters just around the corner. We thanked Steve for the easy parking tips. It helped to have such a good location.

I treasure meeting people like Steve, even if briefly, and enjoyed meeting a few of the locals in this area, as they all seemed like good folks. All these moments that come and go, I can look back on and smile and consider how Steve must hope that families enjoy the place and participate making it their own, there is nothing better. Because the place is so beach close and casual, it allowed us to discover it in a personal and memorable way.

The beach house is in swell condition, everything was taken care of and we all couldn't have been more pleased to have a nice person like Steve allow us to vacation here. Our family time together was better for it.

Owner's Response: hi Kristin and thanks for the candid review. I agree and appreciate all that you shared. I greatly enjoy and give thanks when people allow this place the chance to show the subtle difference a super beach casual place can really make. There are a lot of choices a person can make for the family, when choosing a place for their beach vacation... this place respects that important choice. I agree, at the end of the day it's about making those memories, the fun together kind. I also appreciated the cute sidewalk chalk drawings the kids made... got some real talent there. Yay! Take care and I look ahead to seeing you again, Steve.

Perfect Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Newport! The house is about a 1 1/2 blocks from the beach. We were able to use the bikes to ride up and down the boardwalk. Steve was easy to reach and answered every question along with giving us recommendations on where to eat. We would love to come back!

Great extended family SoCal vacation

  • 5 of 5

Steve was very responsive and helpful. This is not 4 star accommodations (we didn't expect it to be), but is a comfortable, clean usable space for a great family vacation. We stayed 8 days with 12 total family members and the space worked great. The couch bed is a couch bed...with the limitations that come with those, and would best be suited for kids, as we had adults that slept on it and felt the bar. It was no problem, we pulled the mattress and put it on the floor and it was great. the house is furnished well, equipped with everything you need to cook on your own if you want. We have stayed at a number of beach towns over the years and parking is always an issue...not a big issue, but always there. We had two vehicles, and there is only room for one in the garage (won't close all the way with a minivan, but it worked) We had to drive around to find parking for the second car (GMC Yukon)...worst case you're a few blocks away. I look forward to coming back to Newport again. We did Disneyland, Universal Studios, Beach, Whale Watching, Rose name it, we did it!

Thanks Steve!

Owner's Response: You're welcome Mitch, It was a pleasure having your group of 12 ring in the New Year here. Watching sunsets together and staying very active. We felt part of the parade as you had an actual family member marching in it! You're right, the place does accommodate large groups as expected, especially for a big family stay in Newport Beach, on the peninsula and here at the beach. Thanks for your helpful insights and we've since replaced that year-old Sealy sofa mattress with a newer and highest rated 4 1/2 inch memory foam mattress. Much nicer. Current and future guest appreciate the constant improvements we make to adjust based on quality responses such as yours. Getting even better, every stay. See you again, cheers!

Great location! Perfect for a family! Steve is a wonderful host!

  • 4 of 5

Our experience was excellent. Steve was fabulous host and the house came with everything we needed to enjoy the beach. The only minus was the beds were is very firm and the other is super soft. The two twin beds were just perfect. Over all this place was great for a family just wanting to enjoy the beach.

Thanks Steve.

Owner's Response: Michelle, Thanks for your kind review. I am pleased to know the swell home and location is valued by neat families, just like yours. We aim to provide accommodations that work for every body across the board. While most folks dig the fine mattresses we provide, we see that they weren't as comfortable for you... Goldilocks and The Three Bears comes to mind. Hey, I'd be stoked to make it up, on some future porridge. Give me a call and come visit us again - okay! Steve.

Easily one of the best beach vacations we've ever had.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks! My family has been coming to Newport Beach for the past 8 years. We have stayed at a number of different locations and let me tell you, this place is definitely one of the best around. Like Goldilocks and the 3 bears, some places were too small, some were too much like a summer rental, some were just too hoity-toity .

This place was just right! It practically has everything you could imagine needing. Big, clean, fun and felt like home. The whole family agrees that this was one of the best vacations we've had.

It's not often you find an owner like this one, who respects your vacation choice. Couple that with the fact that there is so much to do here and the beach area to make your summer vacation as memorable as possible. You will find it all good here. We did and we also expect to be back for a future summer too!
