Balboa Peninsula condo description

Spectacular views await you at this Newport Beach oceanfront location. Whether you enjoy people watching, gazing at the ocean, or enjoying a beautiful sunset, this home has it all. Located on the boardwalk near the Newport Pier, in the heart of the action, this 2nd floor unit features high ceilings, a marble fireplace, 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms each with a queen-size bed, and a fully equipped, gourmet kitchen. Furnished both for comfort and style, this is a step above the usual beachfront rental. Snuggle up by the fireplace, relax in the cozy, elegant bedrooms, or sit on the deck sipping wine. You'll delight in the 180 degree whitewater views from your private balcony. In the morning enjoy your coffee, as you watch the surfers try to catch a wave just 50 yards away. Better yet, grab your surfboard and join them! Play during the day, then come home, pour a glass of wine and savor that spectacular sunset that's been waiting just for you.

                                      Year Purchased: 1974

                                      About the owner: We do a lot of traveling, especially to Europe. Henry is from Sweden and loves going back to see family. We both like to sail, and Henry has a great love of flying and all things aeronautical. We also like hanging out in Hawai'i.

                                      Why the Owner Chose Balboa Peninsula:
                                      Sun, sand and surf. . .that's why we are still in Newport Beach. It's all right here. Henry bought this property back in the 1970's just because he wanted to surf and look at girls in bikinis. Truly, no more thought to it then that. But what a great purchase it has been! After all these years we still watch every ocean sunset with as much awe as if it was the first. And, while he won't say it to me, he still loves to check out the girls.
