Property description

This cozy and well-maintained Balboa beach cottage (the lower unit of duplex) is located on the Balboa Peninsula of Newport Beach at 308 1/2 Alvarado Place in the Bayside area. Walk 250 feet to the ocean, 100 feet to see the beautiful yachts on Newport Bay. The Balboa Pier is a 5 minute walk down either the oceanfront or bay-front sidewalks.

Some of our happiest guests are couples and small families who love the idea of parking their car and walking to the beach, the pier, shops, restaurants, and sightseeing. The ferry, about 4 minutes walk, will take you to Balboa Island for more sightseeing, shopping and dining.

This beautifully decorated, completely furnished 2 BR, 1 BA unit sleeps 5. It has a delightful front covered patio with flowers, hedges, a BBQ, tables and chairs. The unit itself has glass block for light and privacy along with double french doors opening onto patio. The unit is completely outfitted for meal preparation. Charming cottage style furniture and decor. A tiled bathroom has shower/tub. Parking for one car in garage and beach cruisers for use.

Pets are NOT allowed, NO Smoking, and NO smoking on deck areas as well.. We are very strict about the maximum of 5 people. The master has a queen bed and the guest room has one single bed and a bunk-bed with a full bed on bottom and a single bed on the top.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We have owned peninsula property since 1975 and feel it is a perfect vacation spot. Pete and Kathy are 'snowbirds' who live in Newport Beach in the winter and Salt Lake City in the summer. Pete's retired from Delta Air Lines as a pilot and currently does golf course ratings for Golf Digest as well as golf photography. Our home has many of his beautiful photographs of life in Newport Beach. Kathy teaches Bible Studies.

Why the Owner Chose Balboa Peninsula:
The Pacific Ocean never gets old! We love watching waves, seagulls, pelicans, seals and dolphins. The perfect spot for morning coffee and sunset walks. Park your car, walk to shopping, restaurants and endless recreation. Ride a bike to the Wedge for a picnic or stroll over to Balboa Island for lunch.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walking along the Pacific Ocean accompanied by porpoises, pelicans and sea gulls is a delight --especially at sunset.
