Property description

Old Newport Beach: a small, home ON THE OCEAN FRONT SAND right near the 36th Street Life Guard Tower. Vacation the way we used to in the 1950s through the 1970s. Sand, ocean, walking on the beach or walking around town to eat, drink and shop. Rent or bring your bike/cruiser to ride to the donut shop, the Newport Pier, Alta Coffee Shop, Crab Cooker, Mutt Lynch's for breakfast burrito or pizza, Beach Burgers, sushi at Cal Beach, Pipeline burgers, Laventina's Big Cheese Pizza, Bear Flag Fish Market, and on and on. Oh yeah, and you have a kitchen, patio, bedroom, livingroom, dining room, two bathrooms - but who needs them when you are ON THE OCEAN FRONT SAND. This home is best for one or two adults or a small family. Kids love it; young at heart and under 50.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1970

About: I manage the family ocean front beach house. I am over 40 years old. My husband is also in the photo as is our dog, who is visits the beach house. We live in Newport just a couple of miles away. I have lived in Newport Beach, California for most of my life. The kids in the family from age 1 through 25 love this home: the beach, the surf and the sounds of the waves crashing at night and in the early morning. Great sunsets. No need to check surf report because you will be right there. We walk down the street for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It's a great place for a small family or couple or retreat for one.

Why Balboa Peninsula:
Family home that is in a very fun location that represents old Newport vacations before The Housewives of The OC arrived. Family members love staying here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
BEACH, surf, walks on beach, walk or ride bikes to coffee house, restaurants, donut shop, cinema, market, shops, pier and or to relax - you are on the sand.
