About Janice and Bill, Owners/Managers (Wife & Husband)
We're Bill & Janice and we own the 'Sandcastle', and live in the Upstairs unit of this Duplex while renting the Downstairs unit as our Vacation Rental. We're ex-Corporate Executives (now retired) and we've come to enjoy the better things in life - and if you do too, perhaps this is the vacation home you've been looking for! We love to travel, throughout the US and internationally, and here we are recently in Australia by the Sydney Opera House (and on the International front, we've traveled extensively and have been to China, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Philippines, Europe, Sweden, Argentina, India, Australia, New Zealand, India and Africa in the last 10 years). The "Sandcastle'" is available all YEAR ROUND as a weekly/short term rental, as we do not choose to rent the winter months to college kids - as so many people do in our area - insuring that it is available, and in beautiful condition all year through! During non holiday weeks and in our off-season, we'll even rent the 'Sandcastle' for shorter stays of 3 nights or more. We take a lot of pride in the 'Sandcastle' and do enjoy that our guests appreciate staying in such a comfortable and clean 'home away from home'. We aim to be your go-to Newport Beach vacation home; We have many returning guests, and we hope you'll become a satisfied guest too!
Janice and Bill, Owners/Managers (Wife & Husband) purchased this House in 2000
Why Janice and Bill, Owners/Managers (Wife & Husband) chose Balboa Peninsula
The general area is fantastic. The white sand beach and ocean, virtually outside our door/30 steps away, is beautiful. Our location, a ten minute walk on the boardwalk to the Newport Pier, is perfect; It's close enough if you want the hubbub of activity there, but enough away to quietly enjoy a book on the front patio. It's an outdoor lifestyle here at the beach, and we ride our bikes alot, walk/run, grab a beach chair and settle into relaxation on the beach, rent a Duffy boat and cruise around the Newport Harbor. And there's so much to do in the area...There's great shopping and an abundance of both casual and upscale restaurants, and theme parks (Disneyland etc) and sights for our visitors to keep busy. No matter where we travel to (and we've been around the World), we can't imagine living anywhere else, so it's a pleasure to have guests stay at our vacation home and enjoy all that we enjoy! Come live like a local in Newport Beach!
What makes this House unique
We have lived on the Peninsula for 20+ years, and prior to this home, we lived just a few blocks away. It's a great area! We purchased this Duplex to (a) enjoy the fantastic beach and general area ourselves - as we live in the Upstairs unit - but mostly stay out of your way, and (b) provide a vacation rental - Downstairs - that we could oversee ourselves, offering something 'better than the rest', with more personal service. We're available from the time you book until the time you arrive, to assist with any questions or needs you have. We know the area so very well and you can feel comfortable knowing that we can assist with whatever special request you have! (Or keep to ourselves during your stay, if that's what you prefer:-) We love to travel ourselves, and our aim is to provide MORE to our guests in terms of a clean and comfortable, nicely decorated, well maintained rental, and we modeled it after what we most enjoy - and expect - when we travel. Frankly, when we travel, we like to have - as an example - a choice of pillows, nice wine glasses, sharp knives, TV pay per view movies at no charge, an extra tank of propane should it run out, a washer/dryer of our own to use, bedding that smells - and is - fresh and clean, local restaurant recommendations...some of the many basics and extras that we offer as Owner/Managers of our beach vacation home!

Hi Ori. Yes, we pride ourselves on having a super-clean house, ready to have you start enjoying your vacation as soon as you arrive. Being just one house from the ocean is a plus also, wouldn't you agree? Thanks for being great guests - and enjoying your stay also!
Great location! Walking distance to all the great spots!
This is a really great location! Janice had everything we needed, which made it very convenient! We had a wonderful time!
Christy, enjoyed having you and your family as our guests. Glad to hear you had such a wonderful time! Hope to see you again!
BEAUTIFUL HOME, STEPS TO BEACH
Our family so enjoyed our stay at the Sandcastle. The photos don't do it justice, it's even nicer in person. And the location is superb, just steps from the sand! We arrived late at night to quiet music playing, all the lights on to make it easy for us to acquaint ourselves with he house, and even a bottle of wine left for us. Everything was so comfortable, the furniture, the beds, and the kitchen had everything! The owners Janice & Bill have really thought of everything. We could not have asked for a better location or rental home. They have a new washer/dryer and outdoor showers to rinse off. We highly recommend, and when we come back to Newport, we will definitely be renting this home again!
We so enjoyed meeting you and having you for a stay at our "Sandcastle". Hope to see you again! regards, Janice & Bill
Very comfortable and perfect location.
Jane was amazing and so prompt communicating with us all thru the rental process and was very helpful during our stay.
There's so much to do in the area and if you feel like driving a bit...an hour away is Los Angeles, 2 hours away is San Diego; We're so centrally located! We're 30 minutes from Disneyland (even via surface streets) - and so much more!
It's a great area for bike riding (mostly flat), so bring your bikes or you can rent them nearby (by the hour/day/week)...and we have an outside area where you can lock them up (so please bring a lock:-).
