Great vacation by the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week at Tower 13 with our two teenagers. What a wonderful spot. The apartment was beautifully appointed with everything we needed for our family of 4, including 2 baths, outdoor shower, laundry and dryer, great kitchen, nearby grocery store, front patio, BBQ grill, plenty of bath and beach towels, parking spot and garage full of beach items (wagon, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, bikes and more - I LOVED having a bike!). Not only did it have everything I needed and wanted but the apartment is lovely with clean lines and nice fixtures. The beach is steps away with the big Newport waves that we love - and right at a lifeguard tower. Kat and John were fabulous and responsive to all my questions pre and during stay and just so nice. We followed their recommendation to have the kids do surfing with Endless Sun Surf School!

Awesome Experience, Best 2 Bedroom in Newport!!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a 2br on the Balboa Peninsula, look no further! This place is fantastic! First, the location. It is located perfectly between the Newport Beach Pier and the Balboa Pier, just a short walk to either (this gives you plenty of dining options within walking distance). It's also just a 1/2 block off the beach with super easy access to the tower 13 beach. The unit provides off street parking which can be huge during the summer months when the beach communities get busy. Next, the unit itself. This property is very clean, with two spacious bedrooms. The living room is just a bit on the small side but you have an outdoor patio right off the living room so that more than makes up for the limited space. The kitchen is well stocked with all the things you might want for a meal in. While all of these items would make this a great option, it's the extras that put this place way over the top. Kat and John have literally thought of everything and included it in this rental. Big soft beach towels, really nice bath towels, travel cooler to take drinks to the beach, Bluetooth music speaker, and cable TV (this list does not capture everything). With all this great stuff, the best item might just be the garage, that's right, the garage! It's full of everything you want for your time on or around the beach: Beach chairs, beach umbrellas, bogie boards, surf boards, skate boards, bikes (child and adult), balls, sand toys, and a wagon to effortlessly pull all your stuff to the sand. There's even a hat to keep the sun off your head if you want it! You would literally spend $100 a day or more to rent the beach stuff that Kat and John provide. For the money, this is hands down the best deal in Newport (and no, we aren't relatives of theirs, we had never met them before we rented from them)! Loved everything about our experience, can't wait to go back. So, rent from them, just don't pick the week we want :).

Beautiful Beach Condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Tower 13. This beautiful condo was exactly as pictured and was extremely clean upon arrival. We were greeted with a welcome basket full of wine and treats after a long day of travel. Kat, the owner, was extremely friendly, responsive and helpful. The location was a short walking distance to the beach, bay, boardwalk and 2 parks. The garage was stocked with bikes, beach chairs, toys, boogie boards, umbrellas, etc. We would refer this unit to our family and friends and look forward to visiting again next summer!

My family of four (9 and 7 year olds) came for the 4th of July festivities. Having been to the area multiple years prior, we decided to venture a little up the peninsula to a home. This was the best decision, and this home was the best choice, by far! The West family was extremely responsive, very helpful, and the one minor issue we had with the TV, I texted late hours of the evening and Kat was immediately on it, we worked together and figured out the problem. We were so happy here. We will definitely be back. Perfect location for a family. The amenities and location were top notch!! The only problem we had is we didn't stay longer!

Wonderful Location, Property, Amenities, and Hosts!!!

  • 5 of 5

First visit to Southern California and we couldn't have asked for a kinder or more helpful couple to rent from. The home was spotless and filled with things to keep the whole family equipped to enjoy sunny California. Kat provided helpful advice before we arrived, and made herself available when we were there to make sure we got the most out of the visit. Absolutely zero complaints, we'd rent from them again in a heartbeat. FIVE STARS!!!

Great location; modern and updated property with everything you need for the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We try to do family beach vacations annually, and this might have been the best yet. The location was great – very close walk to the beach access and Balboa Pier. The unit itself is modern, updated and has everything the family needs for beach fun and cooking/grilling. The owners were also very accommodative and took extra steps to ensure we had a great stay. Overall, very good experience we would recommend and would gladly return.
