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!

Beautiful house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2.5 year old daughter, and I stayed at this house for 4 nights. It was a beautiful house and was in a great location (close to beach, stores, restaurants, and parks)!! The house had everything that you could possibly need including a lot of toys, books, and games for our daughter. There was also a garage full of outside toys (bikes, etc) and beach gear/toys. We tend to stay at vrbo's and airbnb's when we travel, and this was by far one of the cleanest and most equipped homes we have stayed in! The owners were very quick to reply to all our questions, were helpful in their responses, and were very pleasant to work with! We would definitely stay again if we were traveling to Newport Beach!

Look no further... you have found the perfect beach house! We couldn't have been more happy with our whole experience in renting this beach house from Kat and John. They were always available to answer questions before our arrival, and it was so fun to have a chance to meet them once we arrived. They made us feel welcome and at home.

This beach house rental is beautiful, up-to-date, clean, perfectly located, and provided us a nice place to relax when we'd come home at night after a full day of playing in the ocean, riding our bikes up and down the boardwalk, and shopping. Walk around the corner and you're on the beach... just perfect!

It has everything you want and need in the way of technology and fun... internet, Apple TV, dvd player, boogie boards, bikes, a beach wagon, beach towels, beach umbrella, and more. We will come again and again and again. We've rented other beach houses in recent years, and will never have to look again because we found the perfect house in the perfect place from the greatest people.

I have recommended this property to several friends who want to visit Newport Beach and have a fun, memorable, and easy vacation. Our family of four loved every minute! Thanks to Kat and John for helping us make our vacation one of the best!

Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at this beautiful rental. It is extremely clean and has everything you need.

It's close to restaurants, coffee shops, the Bay Area and ocean! You can't beat it.

I would highly recommended to all my family and friends.

Kat and John are great with communication and there if you need anything.

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!
