                      Our beach house is located 1 block from the main village where restaurants, retail shoppes and coffee houses are located. We are also a few houses from the south bay front beaches. Wind surfing boards and electric bikes are available to rent in the village.

                       

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: We purchased our beach house in 1990 and we have raised our children here. We have wonderful memories of family BBQ'S, crab fishing, endless hours of playing on the beach, surfing at the ocean, eating frozen bananas and 'hippo cookies' at Dad's, and just watching our children grow up in a safe beach environment.

                      Why the Owner Chose Balboa Island:
                      We vacationed here on the island for many summers and we loved it so much we wanted to buy our own beach cottage. It is a great place to bring children so they can play safely at the beach, walking distance to town if you want to go shopping or just get a cup of coffee. If you do not want to cook there are 8 restaurants in town that are all great.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We have updated the beach house many times during the last 20 years. Most recently with a state of the art kitchen and a tropical inspired decor, we love coming home. We enjoy the patios for reading and relaxing in the sun. Our home is bright, sunny and airy with the sea breezes flowing through.
