About Matt Pentecost

I am a real estate broker and manage this property for my family. As a native southern-Calfornian, I love coming to the beach and know that you will too!

Matt Pentecost purchased this apartment in 1973

Why Matt Pentecost chose Balboa Peninsula

This property has belonged to my family for years and it has been my home-away-from-home as I was growing up. We still use the property when it is vacant since it is such a beautiful location with such great proximity to everything and provides all the amenities we could ask for.

What makes this apartment unique

The short walk to the beach has been wonderful as my family has created long-lasting memories of playing in the sand, surfing, and watching the sun set...only to return to a delicious bbq dinner on the patio.

Anoter relaxing saty at Newport Beach

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from an 11 night stay at Matts apartment in Newport Beach. My wife and I have been staying here over Thanksgiving for several years now. This place is so comfertable to stay at. We also stay about 3 or 4 other times each year. We are comming back for 6 more nights right after Christmas. The bay is right across the street. and the beach is only one house away. Just the perfect location. The neighbors are very friendly too. Many great restaraunts within a short walk. Balboa Island is also very close. My wife loves to visit all the little shops there. We went to Disneyland on Thanksgiving day. It is only a 30 - 40 minute drive. We are planning on going to Universal Studios ove Christmas. It is only about an hour drive. The apartment is fully stocked with everything you need and Matt is just a phone call away. If plan on visiting NPB call Matt first!

Perfect spot in Newport Beach

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stay here 5 - 6 times a year. It is the perfect spot. Righ across the street from the bay & Marina, and just 1 house away from the sand & beach. Quiet place, great neighbors, close to many really good restaurants. Just a short walk to Newport pier and a little longer walk to Balboa pier. A short drive to the ferry and Balboa Island. About a half hour drive to Disneyland and about 45 minute drive to San Diego. Great for just the two of us, or works for us and our grandkids too. You won't find a nicer guy than Matt to rent from. Comming back for Thanksgiving & Christmass too.

Great stay, near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Mat's place, very close to the beach, no problem with parking, all the amenities. Good for a family of 4-6 or group of friends looking to relax on the nice Balboa beach. Terrace and BBQ were also great. There is no cutting board, so not bad to buy.

Great Place for Familes!

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent beach rental for my family. It is steps from the sand, but there are other pluses as well. I grew up in NB and am very aware of the bonus of certain locations. This property is directly across the street from the new Marina Recreation Facility. There is a great 'Baby Beach' here for little kids and weak swimmers. You can rent a stand up paddle board that is right on the sand - not carry one around. Just hop on and go.

The area to the north of the Pier can get packed because of the huge parking lot there. However, it's nice and quiet with plenty of space on the beach area in front of the apartment because the parking is limited. You are still a short walk to the restaurants, bars and fun area without being right in the middle of it!

You can quite literally do your grocery shopping for the time you're here, then not move your car again once you've parked near the apartment. Everything except a major grocery store is withing easy walking distance. (There a small market one block away where you can find basics.)

We also loved the HUGE deck. We had breakfast outside every morning and several other meals there.

In short, a great place for a family beach vacation.

Great place and great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at Matt's Balboa apartment and we love it! Everything is always very clean and well stocked. Matt is super friendly and very accommodating. We feel right at home and have everything we need! You can't beat the location - close to all the restaurants, steps from the beach and across the street from the marina park. It's no problem to run back from the beach to grab a drink or a snack which is great with kids! The view from the deck is terrific - a great place for happy hours and BBQs. We come down to Newport every summer for a family reunion and we rent 4 houses now. This place is perfect for our family and makes it easy to meet up with everyone. We can't wait to come back again next year!
