Spacious home, NOW with A/C - just steps from the beach w/ a deck & full kitchen

This three-story beach house in Newport Beach is the perfect family vacation home and features an ocean view! Revel in quality time together, as well as a full kitchen, a furnished deck, and easy beach and bike trail access at the end of the street. And with only two houses between you and the sand and famous Newport Beach three-mile boardwalk, life doesn’t get much better than this!

This ideal location, which some consider to be the best spot after Peninsula Point, is nestled between two piers on a beach that's frequently low on crowds. A playground on the sand is a mere two blocks away, and with beach and bay access so near, outdoor activities abound. Do some canoeing, kayaking, paddleboarding, jet skiing, bike riding (either cruiser, tandem or four-seater paddle surrey), skateboarding, surfing, fishing off both piers, or learn to sail. Bring your own equipment or rent from multiple locations on the peninsula or Balboa Fun Zone, which boasts a Ferris wheel, game arcade, restaurants, and jet skiing. Or captain your own electric boat and cruise the bay by renting from Duffy Boats, just a five-minute drive across the bay.

Walk to either pier to explore restaurants and shops and treat yourself to a breakfast or ice cream at the end of the Balboa Pier at Ruby’s Diner. Book a tour of the bay and go whale watching or take dinner cruises. Take the ferry to Balboa Island and explore Marine Avenue with their delightful restaurants and unique shops. During the summer months, if you do not wish to walk along the boardwalk, please take the Balboa Trolley, which cruises from Hoag Hospital to the Balboa Village. Your stop will be directly in front of your vacation home. Couldn’t be more convenient! Also, remember that Disneyland, California Adventure, Angel Stadium, Honda Civic Center are all a short 20-minute drive away.

This home has a light, bright, airy interior full of sea breezes enhanced by specially designed windows. Two communal living spaces are available. One is on the first floor and includes the kitchen, den/bedroom, family room, and dining room. The second is the entire third floor, which has living room, dining area, built-in wine cooler, half bath, and furnished deck.

The fully equipped kitchen includes a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender, electric hot water kettle, oven, gas stove top, and dishwasher, as well as enough cookware to prepare a holiday feast. The first floor accommodates 10 for dining, while the third floor accommodates nine.

This home has four bedrooms: three on the second floor and one on the first. Two bedrooms have complete ensuite baths, and one bedroom has a half bath en suite. Three bedrooms have ceiling fans, and the fourth can have multiple table fans. Between the California king-size bed of the master bedroom, the twin-size bed on the first floor of the den, and a double-sized bed and eastern king on the second floor of the den, everyone is sure to have a good night's sleep.

There is an outdoor shower to wash away the sand after your afternoon on the beach, and other amenities include a private washer and dryer and free WiFi.

Enjoy the perfect beach life in your home away from home.

This home was perfect for a weekend getaway to the beach. This home provided excellent amenities and location for the price. Centrally located on the balboa peninsula we easily walked everywhere we wanted and it accommodated all 7 of us easily. Not only do I recommend it but I plan on renting it again!

Great beach home surrounded by beach, parks, and restaurants. Check in was easy and we enjoyed our stay.

Location was fantastic for our group of 7. Beach is about a 1 minute walk :-). Loved the upper deck and living space- nice place to relax and play games at the table. No problem parking 2 cars as it is off season there. Kitchen has everything you need but it would be nice to have a BBQ. All in all it was perfect! Thank you!

The home is quintessential beach house...charming and cozy and well appointed. Very clean with all amenities! Our stay was five star plus!
Ron W. Jul 2018
Proximity to the beach during a rare heat wave! The house is beautiful but without air conditioning (which probably is not needed under normal circumstances).
Close to the board walk for easy biking to major attractions and restaurants.
Lots of traffic noise until the peninsula empties out at the end of the day.
Overall very nice house and location.
CJ F. Jul 2018
The house is amazing! It feels just like home. Everything is well-kept, clean, and well laid out. The house is less than a city block’s wall from the beach, and is also very close to many amazing restaurants and activities of all sorts. I will definitely be coming back to stay again! I give it 5 stars!

This home was perfect for our family! The beach is a very short walk which allowed us to fully enjoy our vacation. It was very quiet and the ocean breeze was great. We will definitely be back!
