Balboa Peninsula house description

Balboa Pearl is a classic beach gem, offering a wide range of amenities and a highly desirable upper-Peninsula location. Big on both style and value, the Balboa Pearl was recently remodeled and features all-new contemporary furnishings and tasteful décor in neutral colors. Flooring consists of hardwood and ceramic tile, which provide the perfect backdrop for beach living. Fresh paint, enhanced baseboard moldings and contemporary window coverings lend additional warmth and style to this charming beach residence. Situated on a quiet residential street less than a block from the warm sands of Newport Beach, the single-story Spanish-style cottage will make you feel right at home.

Sleeping & Living Areas:
The Pearl features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in approximately 1,100 square feet and can accommodate up to 8 guests. The master bedroom features a brand-new Queen sized bed complete with luxury linens. A set of twin beds can be found in the guest room, while the living room also includes a pull-out sleeper sofa. A third bedroom in the rear of the cottage(which is not a part of the main house) has the added feature of a private exterior keyed entry – making it perfect for sharing with a second couple, extended family or visitors. Within the rear guest suite is a full bathroom and a large desk area, as well as a wardrobe and plenty of storage space.

Modern Amenities:
The Pearl boasts state-of-the-art electronics and has 4 brand-new flat screen TVs. A TV/DVD combo is located in each bedroom and also in the living room. The living room television also includes a Blu-ray DVD player. Complimentary wireless internet access (WiFi) can be found throughout the home. Each bedroom is also equipped with a remote-controlled ceiling fan and the home has a heating system for chilly winter evenings. The cottage’s main bathroom features a renovated shower/tub combo and showcases beautiful tile work and top-quality fixtures. The second bathroom within the guest suite has a stall shower and spa-like touches.

Kitchen, Dining & Outdoor Living Space:
Balboa Pearl’s spacious kitchen is well-outfitted with everything needed to create a fabulous gourmet meal or a simple supper. Appliances include a brand-new dishwasher as well as a recently upgraded microwave, oven/range and refrigerator. All appliances feature black finishes. Black Galaxy countertops also enhance the kitchen and provide an upscale feel. The adjacent dining area features an elegant 4-seat dining table - although many Pearl guests will opt to do their dining outside on the spacious front patio. The patio effectively extends the home’s living space and provides a perfect setting for morning coffee or al fresco dining. A dining table and additional chairs encourage restful evenings and a gas barbecue is provided for outdoor cooking. A view of the ocean and fresh sea breezes can be enjoyed from the patio, while delighting in the beach-town ambiance. Guests will also appreciate the hot & cold outdoor shower that is located on the east side of the cottage.

              Car: Recommended

              Balboa Pearl is ideally located within the first block to the main beach and on the upper Balboa Peninsula area, within Newport Beach. This highly desirable location is easy to get to and does not have the traffic congestion typical of the 'tip' of Balboa Peninsula.

              Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate the beach-oriented water sports available such as surfing, body-boarding and paddle-boarding, while golfers will find challenging courses just a short distance away. Bike riders can rent a cruiser locally and hop on the boardwalk that parallels the beautiful sands of Newport Beach. Families with small children will appreciate the playground that is just a short walk away. World-class shopping at Fashion Island is a 10 minute drive and is not to be missed, and a multitude of fine spas populate the area. A short jaunt south brings you to the fantastic Newport Harbor which offers boating and fishing opportunities as well as fine dining and stimulating nightlife.
