The Space

Enjoy your vacation in this Newport Beach, California "beach house" property. Just four homes away from one of the best sections of beach anywhere.

Great location- easy access to "everything": Beach, groceries, restaurants, shopping, Lido movie theatre, the 38th Street park and basketball court, public tennis courts, public library, the daily ferry to Catalina Island, as well as the world famous Newport Beach Peninsula boardwalk.

You won't want to leave, but, when you do, our location makes it is easy to drive on and off the peninsula.

Some of the close by driving attractions that past guests have enjoyed while staying with us are Disneyland (AKA The Happiest Place on Earth- although the beach ranks pretty close), the Corona del Mar tide pools, Fashion Island's and South Coast Plaza's famous shopping, UCI (University of California Irvine), the Angels baseball stadium, the Long Beach Aquarium, Laguna Beach, and Huntington Beach.

Many of our past guests have commented that not driving for their entire stay was a favorite aspect to their vacation. Remember to bring bikes, or rent them close by.

With two queen sized beds, our property can accommodate up to four people.

Downstairs has a great room feel with a full kitchen, a built-in booth for dining, (email hidden) all open to a family room. Upstairs is a bedroom, a completely remodeled bath, a large built-in desk in a nook outside the bedroom, and a wonderful view deck. In other words, this is not a typical one bedroom place- there is lots of room. You will really appreciate both the layout and the finishing details when you see it.

Some of the high end amenities are:

Kitchen: Stainless steel appliances including stove/ oven, built-in microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator. Small appliances include toaster, coffee maker, blender and mixer. All cookware, dishes, and utensils are included. Granite slab countertops and breakfast bar.

Family room: Wall mounted HD TV that swivels, Blu Ray DVD player, queen sized sleeper sofa (a Lazy-Boy with an air filled mattress for "real" bed comfort), built-in booth for dining, bar (email hidden), and a remote controlled ceiling fan.

Bedroom: Queen size bed, two dressers, television set and DVD player, large closet, and remote control ceiling fan.

Large view deck: Ocean and sunset views. Gas barbecue and lots of comfortable outdoor furniture.

Linens for both beds and bath towels are included. And, instead of bathrobes, we include beach towels. We also have beach chairs and a beach umbrella for your use.

Property has lots of light and ocean breezes- two of the big advantages in vacationing this close to the beach. And, from the bedroom, the waves can be heard.

Keyless locks on the entrance doors, and laundry room door, are programmed with a code that you choose, so no worry about losing the key when you are at the beach.

Lots of favorite local places and hangouts are close by- most of them within one mile of the property. You'll find a list of many of our favorite places in the home.

The photos help to show the property's ambiance. A true "beach home" feel.

A no cost washer/ dryer is included, as is covered parking for one car. (Large enough for an SUV.) Owner/agent. No pets. No smoking.

There is a 10% Newport Beach tax, but it is included in our price and we pay the tax in its entirety.

Due to the front unit/ back unit floorplan of this property (versus the much more common upper unit/ lower unit floorplan) there is a great deal of privacy. We live full time in the front unit, so vacationers seeking a fun, quiet vacation at the beach are a requirement.

The lifestyle, location, and fun associated with this home is wonderful- be part of it for a very memorable vacation.

Our beach house is only available as a short term rental in the months of July, August, and part of September. From September through June of every year we lease it to one tenant on a nine month basis.

Guest Access

The Beach- less than 300 feet away! We can also provide some beach chairs and some miscellaneous beach toys. Beach towels are in the unit.

Interaction with Guests

We usually try to greet guests either at arrival, or soon after to go through the home with them. We also leave a sheet with detailed instructions, favorite places to go, etc. in the unit.

The Neighborhood

Only 300 feet from the beach and the world famous Newport Beach board walk! Within walking distance to lots of restaurants, the Lido movie theatre, shopping, a grocery store and more. Within bike riding distance of even more. Many of our guests do not use their car the entire time they are here. So, not only will you be happy at our place, but you can make Al Gore happy also.

Getting around

Walking and bike riding will get you around to most of the beach amenities and activities. Our location also makes it very easy to get on and off the peninsula by car. Our place comes with a parking spot, which is very important, since finding street parking in the summer can be very time consuming and frustrating.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Excellent accommodations. Great welcome basket and refrigerator of fresh items.
    Easy instructions for everything and convenient to stores and feet away from board walk and beach
    My favorite spot was the rooftop terrace in the early evenings. Quiet except for the sound of the surf

  • Beautiful home with a great location! We stayed four nights and enjoyed every minute. Thanks to Dan and Kathy. We plan on a return visit in the fall.

  • We had a great stay at Dan & Kathy's beach house in Newport Beach. Everything was as advertised with extra pleasant surprises like food, snacks and flowers waiting for our arrival! Not to mention toys for the house and the beach that our son loved. Extra space to safely and easily store our bikes made the whole visit so easy and relaxing. Highly recommend!

  • We had a fabulous time in their home. The place was beautiful and every little finishing touch you could imagine was there. We arrived to an array of snacks, fresh flowers, and even more important to our kids... TOYS! We were provided beach toys, chairs and an umbrella. And as for the location, you could not ask for an easier walk to the beach. We had a truly fabulous time and Dan & Kathy were fantastic hosts!

  • My wife and two boys loved our time at Dan and Kathy's place in Newport Beach. It was our first vacation together as a family of four, and we couldn't have asked for a better location, better weather, or better hosts! The kids enjoyed the beach, the cable TV, and the toys that Dan and Kathy left for us, and my wife and I had a relaxing time lounging upstairs on the patio before sunset. We hope to be back again soon!

  • You will not find another place to stay in Newport Beach as gorgeous as Dan & Kathy's! The price is so reasonable for a this 5 star accommodation. It is a steal!
    Dan & Kathy were perfect hosts. The beach house had absolutely everything. And our stay was perfect.

    We were welcomed with treats and groceries in the fridge, fresh flowers in the kitchen and bedroom.
    We have a baby, and we needed to have the bedroom darkened for when he takes naps. Dan thoughtfully rigged up a temporary blind to block out the light during the day.

    The beach house is just 2 blocks away from the beach,(you can hear the waves from the bedroom!) there is a strip mall with a Von's grocery store and various restaurants just 5 minutes away. And a park right across the street perfect for kids. And having parking included was a bonus. Though if you are just staying locally, you don't really need a car. (we just rented one for 2 days out of our 5 day stay)

    Having breakfast, hearing the waves, and seeing pelican flying over from the roof top deck was just one of the many highlights.

    We can't wait to go back!

  • Dan & Kathy's Beach House has everything you need and nothing you don't! Very modern and clean, everything looks brand new. Dan was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed. We especially appreciated the extra food treats and beach chairs and toys (including the boogie board!) We really enjoyed the roof deck and cooked out twice while there. It was great to sit on the deck and relax in the mornings and evenings. The location of this house is awesome as well. Literally go out the front gate and hang a right and you are at the beach. We spent most of our time at the water. At night we could hear the ocean waves as we slept. We will be back soon! Thanks Dan & Kathy!

  • Dan and Kathy's rental is a beautiful property in a great location. It was better than staying in a hotel! Coordinating for check-in was a breeze, and Dan stopped by twice during our 3-night stay to check on us. The pantry and refrigerator were stocked with some items for us to snack on, and clean, new towels were ready for our use. Honestly it looked like everything in the unit was new. The covered parking was a big plus, and the upstairs patio was a great place to watch the sunset or eat breakfast.
    Honestly, this property deserves a 5-star rating. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is becasue there is no air conditioning and our stay was during an unusually hot and humid heat wave. It was 89 degrees out on the day we arrived, and it was very warm and damp inside, even at night. To be fair, temperatures this high are very unusual for Newport Beach, so I still recommend this location and would definitely stay here again.
