Balboa Peninsula condo description
Wow. Corner Location, Great Access with Wide Open Views!
This large (2183 square foot), three bedroom, two and half bath condo is one house from the ocean/beach and several hundred feet from Newport Bay!! No street to cross to reach beach! It has a 3rd level Master Suite with sitting area, fireplace, walk-in closet, jacuzzi tub with separate shower, double sinks and separate toilet area.
There is NO SMOKING in the house. This vacation home has been a private residence, so don't compare it to the standard beat-up, beach rentals typically found closer to and north of the Newport Pier.
Our home is located conveniently between both Piers on the Peninsula. You will be walking distance from great restaurants, live music and shops in the heart of the Peninsula. If you are looking for activities, there are plenty to choose from - biking, boogie boarding, surfing, check out the World Famous 'Wedge,' sailing, boat rentals, whale watching, Catalina Island, Fishing, shopping at Fashion Island, and more.
This rental is just 15 minutes from John Wayne Airport, 20 minutes from Disneyland, California Adventure, and a short drive from Los Angeles International Airport, Sea World, San Diego Zoo, Hollywood, Universal Studios, Knotts Berry Farm, Long Beach Aquarium, Queen Mary, and many other tourist attractions
The home has a fireplace in the living room and master bedroom. Kitchen with upgraded appliances, cabinets and granite countertops. The home is fully carpeted, has a high definition flat screen TV, a VCR/DVD player, a small deck off the dining room with mosaic table and two chairs, another small deck off the living room and a huge roof-top deck with a gas grill.
Once you step upstairs to the rooftop deck, you might never come back downstairs. The views? You will love them! White water, Catalina Island, Newport Pier, Newport Coast, Fashion Island, Newport Bay, the mountains...they're all in view from the huge rooftop deck. We guarantee that next to being on the beach, this is where you'll be spending most of your time!
The garage can fit two cars. There is plenty of free parking on the street (W. Balboa Blvd). There is a washer/dryer and ironing board in a separate laundry room. We have 4 bicycles, beach chairs and boogie boards for guests to use. There is also an outdoor shower. Dogs Negotiable! Email me for further information.
Thanks for looking!

I would give this place 4 1/2 stars if I could. Wonderful location, halfway between Newport and Balboa piers. One block off the strand. Easy bike ride to everything, including the ferry and balboa island. The house was neat and clean, furnishings basic but tidy. The included bikes and boogie boards were a great touch. The owners were extremely helpful, even to the point of securing a bag I had left behind. Overall a very seamless experience. I highly recommend the rental. Upgrading the interior furniture and bedding would get it up to 5 stars.

We had a great time with all five if our kids and a grandparent. There was enough space to have even more visitors stay. They had everything we needed to enjoy time on and off the beach. The sun was shining every morning while we were here. We will definitely be back again.

Perfect for a family
Perfect for a family
The property is great for a family. There is a large living room, nice dining area and the master bedroom is upstairs for a little extra privacy. The property was very clean and well stocked with beach toys, bikes, linens and towels. Location is great, just 1 house away from the ocean and 1 block from the bay. The owners were very responsive to all questions and very helpful. I would recommend this property to friends and family.

Can't beat the beach
Can't beat the beach
Location location ... rented a week in July and everything was great. A family of 6 was very comfortable. The house was fully equipped for a beach vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed the bikes and the bike path, the boogie boards for the surf. A little calm for the “wedge” but the kids had a lot of fun anyway. Numerous restaurants within walking distance, a bike ride, or short drive. Very good location to start your day trips, It is always nice to finish those day trips back at the beach and watch those California sunsets. Either pier is a great location for those pictures. The owners were very accommodating and easy to work with they also left some recommendations to some of those restaurants. I would absolutely recommend this property for your next vacation.
