LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!
When choosing a vacation rental you want the convenience of walking to historic sites, dining and shopping with the ready ability to easily explore other nearby offerings.

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About: I am a local resident who owns and manages several rentals in the Huntington Beach area as well as Big Bear. I've raised two children and dogs, so I am very family and pet friendly.

              Why Balboa Peninsula:
              As a 49 year resident of Corona del Mar and Newport Beach, I wanted to own a piece of 'Authentic' Newport Beach. I plan to retire soon, travel the world and sail the Caribbean. I plan to make 'Balboa Beach Bungalo' my home base. I like the village feel of the Balboa Peninsula where one can walk or bike just about anywhere.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We enjoy having cocktails in our 'outdoor living room' while people watching in the height of Summer. We have seen it all from the youthful locals to retired snowbirds.
