July on the Island

Highly recommended, this house is fantastic. It is a cozy 3 bedroom and 2 bath beach cottage. It is perfectly situated on little Balboa Island. Bay beach and boardwalk right in front of patio (easy to watch kids play all day in the sand). Short easy walk to main street. Also fairly easy to walk or drive to ferry to Balboa Pier (and the ocean beach). It has a great patio with ample dining furniture and additional furniture for lounging. Beach home came with a great deal of children's DVDs available for use. In addition, beach toys, chairs, boogie boards, etc. where available as well. Can't say enough. Great home for a family vacation.

We stayed here last summer with my husband and two kids and had one of the best vacations ever! The house is right on the water and has a boardwalk and sandy beach out front. Each morning the kids would head straight to the beach with their buckets and we could sit on the patio, have a cup of coffee, people watch and still be able to keep an eye them. The bay is very calm on this side of the island and they kids can swim and paddle around safely in the water. We barbequed at night, had a glass of wine and watched the kids play on the beach and ride their razors on the boardwalk. We walked downtown a few times for last minute groceries and to go out to dinner - it was so relaxing having everything so close - you really don't need to leave the island at all! We love it and are planning to come back this year!

About the owner: Owner has been an Island resident for 23 years.
Why the Owner Chose Balboa Island:
Having lived in Newport Beach for 40+ years (Big Canyon, Promontory Bay, Bayshores) we always knew there was something special about the Island and we waited to find the perfect place. The Bayfront house on Little Balboa Island came up for sale and we knew it was the place to buy. Little Island is a little quieter and a lot warmer than South Bay with more parking yet only a 3 block walk to down town.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Guests enjoy being on the water with beautiful views of Newport Harbor. Sandy beach in front of the duplex for swimming, relaxing on the beach, kayaking, paddle boarding or crabbing (an Island favorite!)
