Balboa Island house description

Welcome to the best location on Balboa Island! Bay front with a sandy beach. Our coveted Little Island location is just steps from the charming Village with markets, shops, restaurants, and services. Wake up to beautiful sunrises over the bay and relax in the evening with a BBQ on the bay at sunset! Spend the entire week and never use your car. Our beautifully landscaped, newly furnished 3-bedroom home is complete with every amenity, including all flat screen TVs, to ensure a premier vacation experience. Comfortable soft seating and a great table in the living area create an environment perfect for relaxing, reading, watching the boats go by, playing games, working on craft projects or watching the big game on TV.

The oversized master king bedroom has a gorgeous bay view, flat screen entertainment center, private bath, and a cute deck with a small bay view that is shared with the second queen bedroom. The third bedroom is huge with a private sun deck complete with chaise lounges for sunbathing. It is set up dormitory style with 5 twin beds. Plenty of room for the kids to play games and connect their game system to the flat screen TV. All bedrooms are on the second floor and Bedrooms 2 and 3 share a full bath. A cute downstairs den is a cheerful area that can be converted to another bedroom with a queen fold out couch.

The house has multiple outdoor entertaining areas. The front patio is right on the bay front and has a large dining table, small cocktail table and a BBQ. The back patio is private and is adjacent to the covered parking / garage area. It is perfect for entertaining when you need indoor / outdoor space. All linens, kitchen ware, towels, are provided. Broadband wireless internet and unlimited domestic long distance will keep you connected. For your convenience a full laundry room is available onsite.

Overall this home is bright, cheery, and comfortable. The moment you wander into our beautifully redone 1938 original property and glance over the bay you know you are home! Bring your bikes, kayak, fishing pole, and walking shoes to enjoy all that the beach and bay have to offer.

Balboa Island is in Newport Beach and is only 15 minutes from Orange County / John Wayne Airport, 50 minutes from Los Angeles International Airport, and 75 minutes to San Diego Lindbergh Field Airport. It is a short drive to many Southern California attractions including Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Universal Studios, Anaheim Stadium, Honda Center, Laguna Beach, Hollywood, Los Angeles, San Diego Zoo, and Sea World.

          Year Purchased: 2010

          About: My family started coming to Balboa Island when I was a kid in the 1960s. It has always been my dream to own a home in this charming, relaxing and very special place.

          Why Balboa Island:
          When this classic 1938 Manor Home in one of the absolute best locations on the Island became available, we couldn't resist purchasing it.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The home had been lovingly cared for and periodically updated by the same family for over 50 years. We are not ready to retire and live here full time. So we decided to completely refurnish the place and make it the perfect vacation destination to be shared with family, friends, and a few select rental guests.
