Rental ID: NB918EOB (Sleeps 6)
Located next to the Balboa Village / Old Town Balboa, this oceanfront unit sits on the boardwalk, right in front of the expansive grassy area of Balboa Park, with the warm sand and sparkling blue Pacific, just beyond. Guests must walk that short distance to catch a view of the nearby ocean.
The boxcar style apartment flows naturally from the rear bedrooms to the open kitchen / dining / living area up front. From there, it's on to the beachfront patio, which is shared with the neighboring unit, but divided with foliage, so each unit gets their own patio furniture and BBQ. The rear bedroom has a king sized bed and the middle bedroom has bunkbed composed of a full and a twin. Extra sleeping arrangements are provided by 1 twin trifold floor mat with pillow and linens - best suited for children. A twin rollaway bed can be rented and delivered, if desired, in lieu of the floor mat.
This is an older unit, renovated and cute, but still small by modern standards and the floors do slant. (The bathroom can only be accessed via the middle bedroom, so plan your sleeping arrangements accordingly!)
Enjoy provided WiFi and cable TV, and washer / dryer in the back shed, as well as immediate walking-distance access to beaches, restaurants, bars, the Balboa Island Ferry, the Catalina Flyer and shopping and fun in the Balboa Village area.
Have more people in your group than six? Rent the adjacent unit as well and sleep another six! Have even more in your family? Rent the 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage just behind as well, and accommodate a total of 18 guests. Family groups only, please. There is an adjoining gate that can be unlocked to provide full access on the "compound"! Call our office for details.
We offer competitive pricing for our guests with beach-cruiser bike rentals for the entire family from infants to adults; free delivery and pick-up included, along with helmets and locks.
All bed/bath/kitchen/beach linens for the maximum number of guests are provided as part of the cleaning/linen fee. Six beach chairs are provided for your use.
PARKING: There is no parking at the unit, but you can still beat the summer parking rush with our reserved parking space next to the Balboa Arcade, just three blocks down from the unit. The parking space is fine for sedans and SUVs, but long trucks may not fit. General neighborhood street parking can also be utilized, both meter and non-meter.
Due to the moderate coastal climate, this house (like most in the area) DOES NOT have air conditioning.
