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!
