About Alexandra Everakes
My husband and I live in Orange County, approximately 25 minutes from Balboa Island. We raised our three children here and made many day trips to Balboa Island with our children. Eventually, we were able to buy a property on the Island. We now have 5 grandchildren plus two daughters-in-law and one son-in-law. Although we rent our beach house, we always reserve a week every summer (both the upper and lower unit) for our family. We have made wonderful memories there with our family over the years.
Why Alexandra Everakes chose Balboa Island
We love Balboa Island! My husband and I always comment as we cross Pacific Coast Highway and make our way toward the Balboa Island Bridge that we feel a little surge of excitement that we are approaching the Island. It is so scenic and serene. If we are there for just one day, it really feels like a short get-away from everyday life.
What makes this Condo unique
Our property is located 4 houses in from the north bay at the end of Garnet. There is a public dock one block away. Our grandson caught his first fish just holding a line on that dock ( we really didn't expect that). We have 2 kayaks and 2 bicycles that are shared by both units.The small beach at the end of Garnet is a perfect spot to relax and ideal for families with small children. Steps away from the our property so it's easy to go back and forth if necessary to retrieve the sunblock or a beach pail. It is a short walk to the ferry and a very pleasant walk to Marine Ave. (the main street) to enjoy shopping , dining , Balboa Bars etc. If you want to see some of the local sights (Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, etc) you are definitely centrally located and no more than a 20 minute drive. Also, I must mention that the downstairs unit although smaller than the upstairs unit has a very large patio (by Island standards) that is like having an extra room of outdoor living. It is really nice for people who just want to relax and enjoy the outdoors. We also have an automatic awning for the downstairs patio.
