Balboa Island house description

This well decorated, modern, Victorian, comfortable home is on Balboa Island. It is three house from Newport Bay. The Island has beaches, shops, restaurants, fishing, boat rentals, and a boardwalk encircles the Island for pleasure walks. Beautiful free city tennis curts are available. A small ferry is a block from the house. This short ferry ride takes you across the bay to the Pacific Ocean and the ocean board walk and Balboa Pier.

Beach Life: You can relax on the front porch, cool on the propane BBQ, (even use our Wi-Fi) or walk four houses to the bay and play and relax on the sandy beach. If you want to visit the ocean and play in the ocean waves just take the 15 minute ride across the bay. The Ferry is a small three car ferry with room for beachgoers. One leaves every few minutes. Great place to play for children of all ages.

Your vacation home is on the quiet corner of the Island. You can walk around the Island and stop at the coffee shops , small grocery or small shops on the main street.

Regional Attractions: You can use this vacation home as a base and visit all of the Southern California attractions. You are able to drive to Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Laguna Beach Art Galleries, Lego Land, and Universal Studios. Drive along the coast and see the Pacific Ocean. You can shop till you drop at Fashion Island/ Newport Center or South Coast Plaza. Visit the well known areas in Hollywood & Los Angeles. Take the Catalin Flyer to visit Catalina.

                  Car: Recommended

                  Balboa Island is one of seven islands located in upscale Newport Harbor. All of this is often called Newport Beach. Balboa Island is special with a small town charm.

                  From Balboa Island you can walk and ride a small 3 car and pedestrian ferry to the Pacific Ocean. In 5 minutes you will be on Balboa Penninsula and then it's a short walk to the Pacific Ocean. Here you can rent boats, bikes, surf and ride the waves.

                  Or you can relax in our comfortable Victorian Beach house and play, sun and swim at the beach on the bay, located four doors from our home. BBQ on our patio. A boardwalk encircles Balboa Island for a pleasant 1.7 mile walk. Add a .79 extra bit to your walk, if you bought a Balboa ice cream bar on your walk!

                  Lots of shops and restaurants on the main street, called Marine Ave., for you to enjoy and on your walk.

                  Newport Beach is located on the Pacific Ocean between San Diego and Los Angeles. We are near many attractions such as Laguna Beach, Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, LEGOLAND, South Coast Plaza (major shopping/restaurants), Newport Center (more major shopping/restaurants). You can take a ferry to Catalina Island-26 miles across the sea! Lots of free public tennis courts, run in the back bay or bird watch etc...

                  Please feel free to see our video on you tube (112 Garnet) Call us at 406 675-0169. We would love for you to be a guest at our home. This is our home when we are not in Montana, and hope you will enjoy it in our absence.

                   

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: Hello, We are Karen and George Watson. We have raised our five children on Balboa Island. We logged many hours sitting on the sand at the end of the street when they were small and watched them learn to surf, swim, row, scuba dive etc... When they grew up we remodeled the house and moved to Montana, where we enjoy riding our horses. We could not leave the Island and our children insist on visiting; so we now have a weekly vacation rental. We hope you and your family will make many wonderful memories here as well.

                  Why the Owner Chose Balboa Island:
                  This is our home when we come to California. We keep it spotless,decorated and well appointed with amenities. We cook in the kitchen, BBQ on the patio, enjoy walking the quiet end of the island. Hopefully, our personal touch will make your stay like family.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We mostly rent to people who return year- after-year to stay in our home. They often feel it is their personal vacation second home. People come from Europe and some from a near by city, Irvine, to enjoy the beach. We hope you will become one of our extended families.
