Want to deep sea fish, just take the ferry across to the peninsula and some of the best deep sea fishing is available for the day or by the hour. Take the ferry to Catalina and enjoy the day cruising the island in a golf cart..the only way to see the island!

Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: I purchased the building in 2003 to live on Balboa Island. I have rented both units during some period, and have lived in the upper unit also. I love the open, light feeling of the upstairs and because I am on a corner, so it is bright and airy, and private unlike many of the homes on Balboa Island. I travel a great deal, and love coming back to 'paradise on the island'. It is a fun place to live, and because it is on the little island, it is quieter and more enjoyable to me then living on the big island. Come and experience life on Balboa!
Why the Owner Chose Newport Center, Newport Beach, CA, USA:
I remodeled my happy home on Balboa this year, totally redoing the entire home, adding an elevator, new everything else, so it is absolutely beautiful. The neighborhood is wonderful, and the people are friendly on the little island, and everyone is kind enough to offer help when needed. It is a great neighborhood atmosphere, and being only a block from the boardwalk, a good morning or evening walk is something I always look forward to, and always enjoy. I rent by the week or the month during the summer and by the month during the winter from Sept to May, and it seems to work really well. I have been very lucky to have wonderful guests who love coming back every year, so that makes it all worth while!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The privacy of living on little island, and the location, which is a corner location, is open, airy and bright, are the reasons I love it here. I do not enjoy living in a dark place, and so I have selected to live in a home that meets all my needs, and makes me enjoy coming home. I travel mostly for business, so having wonderful neighbors makes it so delightful to have a place on little Balboa island.
