About the owner: We first discovered Balboa Island as college students years ago and it has been a special place for us ever since.
Why the Owner Chose Balboa Island: We love Balboa Island! We have lived and vacationed in the Newport Beach area for 35 years. It is like living in a fantasyland; surrounded by water on all sides, with the ocean at your front door for swimming, surfing, sailing, fishing and more; within walking distance of restaurants and shopping. Be sure to try a frozen banana (dipped in chocolate) or a Balboa Bar (ice cream dipped in chocolate) on one of your walks to Marine Ave.. Balboa Island is a magical place!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Ruby Beach is 1 block from the house where you can cool off in the water or warm up in the sun. We are also about 6 blocks from the ferry boat that takes you to the beaches on the Newport penninsula including one of the best surfing spots in Southern California, the wedge. You will also find the fun zone here with more shopping, restaurants and an arcade for the kids. Bike riding, fishing and day trips to Catalina are some more favorite activities.
