Balboa Island house description

Enjoy our bright, clean and sunny beach house with all the amenities you’ll need for a week or two of summer fun at the beach. Or enjoy a month in the off season. It is located in the heart of Balboa Island, one block from the bay beaches and promenade and only half a block from the historic main street where you will find two blocks of quaint shops, cafes and other amenities including a post office, a small grocery store, and even a Starbucks.

This rental is the downstairs unit of a duplex which has a patio for relaxing and people watching. Upstairs is a 4 bedroom rental unit. Many families rent both units which together can accommodate 14 people with 7 bedrooms (including 2 master suites), 5 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, 2 barbeques, 2 living rooms and an upstairs deck. Both units rent on a weekly basis, from Saturday to Saturday throughout the summer. The 3 bedroom is available on a short term basis year round, either by the week or month.


This downstairs unit has a queen bed master suite with adjoining bathroom with large shower. The second bedroom has a set of twin bed and shares a full tub/shower bathroom with the third bedroom which has a single trundle bed, with a single second bed that rolls out if needed. All the bedrooms and the living room feature furniture by Drexel and Ethan Allen.

Most of our tenants are repeats, coming back year after year for their family vacations. They enjoy our pride of ownership in our well maintained, nicely furnished and spotless beach house. Among our rental agents, it is considered the cleanest house on the island.

This beach house is uniquely situated on a southern corner lot with plenty of sunny windows and ocean breezes. Part of the charm of Balboa Island is the layout of the lots but many of the houses are sandwiched together blocking good light and breezes. If you want to escape the heat of your hometown, our house is your best choice for comfort.

                  Location

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  Balboa Island is located between Huntington Beach and Laguna Beach in the Newport Harbor. It is connected by a short bridge to the mainland near Pacific Coast Highway and has ferry service to the Balboa/Newport Peninsula and the ocean.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1930

                  About the owner: My sister and I grew up in La Habra Heights where our favorite pass time was going to the beach. Now I live in the mountains near Lake Tahoe and my sister lives in Redlands. We enjoy getting together every year for a few weeks at our family beach house on Balboa Island.

                  Why the Owner Chose Balboa Island:
                  My grandmother bought this property around 1930 from her sister who lived a couple blocks away on Apolena. When I was in high school, my parents built the existing duplex and my mother lived there for many years. Now my sister and I are lucky owners and dream of our retirement on the Island someday.
