We have maintained a quality vacation rental for the last 12 years. However this home is constantly being updated! Steps to ocean and bay along with Cape Cod decor makes this home lovely, fun and comfortable. The fantastic location and a rooftop deck make staying at the beach a special occasion. Located in the Bayside area of the Balboa Peninsula, 308 Alvarado Place offers great family accommodations.
This lovely, newly remodeled UPPER unit, pictured here, is only 250 feet to the oceanfront sidewalk and less than 100 feet to bayfront sidewalk. 308 Alvarado is about six blocks from the Balboa Pier. The upper unit has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and an office/sleeping loft, outdoor roof-top deck, and separate TV den. Steps to ocean means no water views, just real, real close!
The living room and dining room is very open with high ceilings and windows, thick moldings and great decor. Much of the house is remodeled as of 2008. The kitchen has a great garden window, custom tile counters and floors with all new appliances. Windows throughout the house are textured for privacy and light. Tile floors give it a clean and fresh feeling.

About the owner: Pete is a retired Delta Air Lines Captain. Pete and Kitt have owned on the Balboa Peninsula for 30 years but still feel like it's the perfect vacation spot. Work brought us to Utah where our sons grew up. Now it is home for our 3 beautiful granddaughters as well.
Why the Owner Chose Balboa Peninsula: The Pacific Ocean is a constant source of pleasure. We also love parking our car and not getting back into it for a week! Bike riding to shopping and restaurants, even the Post Office is a delight.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our family has a saying, 'You haven't been to the beach till you get sand on your feets' --so please spend time walking the beautiful Balboa beach enjoying the amazing Pacific Ocean. Walking along bayfront to restaurants is another favorite pastime.
