Overview

About the property

Rental ID: NB11539B (Sleeps 12)

Permit #SLP12023

Enjoy all the fun of an invigorating beach vacation in this rear upscale bungalow located on Newport Beach’s famed Newport/Balboa Peninsula - situated just behind the 3 bedroom/3 bath front main house, which can also be booked simultaneously to accommodate a grand total of 22 guests! (See vrbo listing #753937)

What was once a historical beach cottage has been transformed into a classy and upscale modern marvel - completely rebuilt and re-styled from top to bottom in 2011.

The historic heritage of the original home shines through in many of the details, while the updates also incorporate the finest-quality materials and workmanship. Exquisite custom fixtures and luxurious state-of-the-art modern conveniences can be found throughout, along with elegant designer furnishings and accessories. Designed around a unique multi-level floor plan, this charming vacation cottage offers 4 bedrooms, plus a den, a computer room/office, upstairs living and dining areas, and 2-1/4 bathrooms. An inviting balcony off the upper floor's main living room provides a comfortable outdoor dining & barbecue area for family meals.

The Craftsman-style Bungalow is an impressive 1,800 square feet and presents an elegant beach hideaway boasting imported stone, tile and granite as well as rich wood moldings and exceptional details: splendid accommodations for a family group of 12! Located just 4 houses from the beach, in the highly desirable upper Balboa peninsula-area, the home is easy to access and away from the traffic congestion that occurs further down the Peninsula: even in the height of summer!

PARKING: Two parking spaces will accommodate compact or mid-size/minivan only. One single car garage and one courtyard space. Garage dimensions 77" H x 91" W. General neighborhood street parking (metered or unmetered) also in area.

With its ideal location and luxuriously appointed details, the benefits of a posh Newport Beach lifestyle is provided, with the convenience of being right near the beach and all of the great destinations along the Newport/Balboa Peninsula.

Due to the moderate coastal climate, this house (like most in the area) DOES NOT have air conditioning.

Check-in time: 3 p.m. on the arrival date

Check-out time: 10 a.m. on the departure date

Great location and management company

  • 4 of 5

Just 5 houses from the beach, location couldn't be beat. We were here on a family trip, so the rooms were fine, but note that the downstairs rooms are interconnected, and one of the rooms can only be reached by walking through other rooms (or bathroom). Kitchen is well-appointed and appliances work great. If you have elderly folks along, or handicapped, note that kitchen, dining and main living areas are upstairs. Management company was very responsive and fixed the dining room lights that weren't working. Note that the parking is VERY tight -- we had two cars, and backing into the spot can be a challenge since garage facing this one had a large car protruding from it, which limited our turning radius. Honda Pilot got through the garage with 1/4 inch on each side to spare; Toyota Prius had more room and fit comfortably (though we had to exit the car before backing in). Overall, good stay and location can't be beat.

It was great!

  • 4 of 5

We all had a fantastic time. It was the perfect distance from the beach, and there was plenty of room for all of us. The beds were comfortable, and there was everything we needed in the kitchen. It was the perfect spot. The only problem we had was maneuvering through the tight space in the back street to pull into the garage. Overall, though, we really enjoyed it.

Beautiful interior and great location....But...

  • 3 of 5

First, the positives. The location is great! Just 4 houses away from the beach! Secondly, this unit appears to have been remodeled within the last few years and they really did a beautiful job on the interior! Every room was very beautifully appointed in decor and function. The kitchen was great too. Although the fridge never made ice. The bedding and furniture were very nice!! The negatives are that it's extremely boxy inside. There are lots of little spaces which made it not a great option for our group (11 people) because we couldn't all be in one room at the same time. Although there are 4 beautiful bedrooms, some are almost claustrophobic small... There is a long set of stairs that presented a challenge for toddlers. The "safety" gate was very flimsy and could not be secured at the top of the stairs. The arrangement of rooms is unusual because the kitchen, dining room and main living space is upstairs. The balcony is VERY slanted too. To the point that we actually called to see if it was safe for all of us to be on it at once. Everyone commented on the slope feeling kind of unsafe. The rental agency assured us it was safe. There were a few little glitches but the rental company was very responsive, which we appreciated. Although the downstairs overhead fan never did work, and the handyman couldn't get it to work either. There is no A/C in the unit (as stated) and it does get hot. Everyone in the downstairs bedrooms said it was very hot at night. Even with table top fans. What is not pictured is that when you are sitting on the balcony, you are surrounded by concrete buildings.. Completely surrounded. Not a deal breaker, but it was odd to be eating out there, surrounded on all sides by other close buildings. The parking is MUCH tighter than you'd expect. Small cars (Prius) would do ok. But a mini van or SUV was so tight to pull through, you literally have a few inches on either side. So passengers need to get out before you pull in , and you need to pull in your side mirrors in order to pull in. Parking is awful to find on the street. One guest got an $80 parking ticket for back tires being inches over the red curb. While the unit is beautiful and in a good location, but it wasn't a good fit for our family. I wish I would've known about some of the negatives before I rented it. But the Beach View Realty company was very good to work with. I give them 5 stars. But if we rent another beach house at Newport, I'd select a different property.

The property was neat and well kept and we liked the proximity to the beach and pier.

  • 2 of 5

The downside to the property is that it is a back unit with access only from the alley. It was extremely difficult to get into the garage parking because cars are allowed to park in the alley across from garage. Also the there is very little breeze because of back location and we were there in July when it was very warm. It was difficult to cool the property down and we ended up purchasing extra fans. Also the outdoor space is pretty small for the number of people the property accommodates. The downstairs bedroom configuration is a little strange. We would not rent this property again but maybe for a smaller group or different time of year it would be okay.

Beachview Realty Saved the day for Eight of us

  • 5 of 5

We came to run the surf city marathon and were scammed by an Airbnb add. The place was disgusting. In a panic we phoned Beachview Reality. They were aware of this derelict property and got to work. Within hours they found us a fantastic place for eight of us. The guys were so happy our guys trip was not ruined. I have to give Beachview Realty my highest recommendation - we will not be booking with anyone else when we return to the area.

Cozy Bungalow by the Beach

  • 4 of 5

Nicely decorated, clean, property located just steps from Newport Beach. This cozy property maximizes sleeping accommodations and provides a lovely kitchen and two separate gathering areas, one upstairs and one downstairs. The lower family room and bedrooms were quite cool during our stay in January, but the gas fireplace was more than adequate in providing a comfort climate. The parking garage/carport is quite narrow, but still nice to have included in the property. Great location close to shopping, local park and beach boardwalk.
