Balboa Peninsula cottage description

Weekly rentals (Saturday to Saturday) all summer long and just one house from the sand! Our 2 bedrooms go from $1,650.00-$1,750.00, 1 bedroom starting at $1,450.00. All rentals require a $125.00 cleaning fee and 10% bed tax.

You are only steps from the beach, so running back to the house to grab the suntan lotion you forgot won’t take 20 minutes! Another plus is that you’re not right on the sand with everyone walking down the boardwalk and trying to look inside (think goldfish bowl). Close to almost everything you’d want to do in California; we’re less than 20 miles from the world famous Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm amusement parks, and about an hour away from Hollywood.

We have bikes and boogie boards to borrow (for free), an outside shower to wash the sand off and coin-op washer and dryer on property. One carport space is included at no additional cost. All units feature a 50' Widescreen HDTV with local channels, Netflix and a DVD player…so feel free to bring some family classics!


The “Cottage Pad”
Very popular for its cozy appeal; the front cottage features 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The master includes a queen bed and the second bedroom has a double bunk bed and a twin bed on top. In the living room there is a sofa bed and love seat for additional guests. It comes with a small patio with BBQ and accommodates a family of up to seven people

The “Lower Pad”
The lower unit is located downstairs to the rear of the cottage. This comfy unit is a 1 bedroom with a full bath. There is a queen bed in the bedroom and two futons in the living room. This unit features the largest private patio with BBQ and accommodates a family of up to five people.

The “Upper Pad”
Giving the cottage a run for its popularity; the third and largest unit is located upstairs and features 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master suite features a small ocean view, a king bed, sofa sleeper and a private bathroom with his and her sinks and a walk-in shower. The second bedroom includes a bunk bed with a double bed on the bottom and a twin on top. Additionally there is a futon in the living room, a private deck with BBQ and accommodates a family of up to nine people.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1970

                  About the owner: I was a beach lifeguard for L.A.County before moving to Orange County in 1961. I fell in love with the Newport Peninsula and rented here during the winter while going to college. I became a SCUBA Instructor in 1963, taught diving while finishing college and went into sales that lead me to eventually buy down here. I've always loved to body surf, skin dive, sail, and I couldn't think of a better place to live than here.

                  Why the Owner Chose Balboa Peninsula:
                  This property is a great location to create amazing memories together that will be unforgettable. Our beach and attractions have a beautiful story that you can become apart of. I just get a kick every year meeting families who have chosen to stay in Newport Beach for their vacations from all over and then hearing what a GREAT and MEMORABLE time they had that week! It is truly a phenomenal getaway that you won't regret!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Disneyland and Knottsberry Farm are less than 20 miles away. The freeway is 1 mile away ;John Wayne airport 15 minutes; LA Airport 1 Hr. Just one house from the sand and the beaches feature lifeguards during the busy season! We have Boogie boards (to share) & sand toys. At times...Bikes (2)The Bay is right across the street also with a small Beach for the younger children & beautiful view of all the boats!
