Property description

There really is no place like Balboa Island! Everyone here is so friendly and you will fall in love with the lifestyle. Fish off the dock and take a kayak ride!

Staying on Balboa Island on the Grand Canal is the place! Beautifully decorated in beach theme, this charming cottage sits on the Grand Canal (that separates the big island from the little island, on Balboa Island.)

Large open living room is perfect with a big flat screen TV and DVD player and a cozy fireplace. Beautiful master bedroom with 1/2 bath and flat screen TV. Full bathroom with new tub and shower next to downstairs bedroom. Free standing shower with outside entrance on first floor makes coming from the beach a perfect welcome to your cottage. Big outside patio in front of your private dock with gas BBQ makes for a great entertainment area.

Great for fishing and perfect for kayaking and surfing! Don't worry about things to do, because you are only steps away from the main street which offers many shops, restaurants and a local grocery store. Ride your bikes to the ferry and you are on the Balboa Peninsula and have the ocean and “Fun Zone” to explore.

We would love to share our home with you and know that you will love the location!

Only minutes away from Fashion Island, Disneyland, and about an hour to the great LA area!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We live only 20 minutes away and use the cottage often! That is why we keep it so perfect for our guests. Our love for Balboa in its people! We have made many great friends over the years and you will feel like it is your home even if you are only there a week. We are open to loan you are kayaks and hope you will enjoy our cottage as much as we do! So many of our guests have returned for a second and even third visit. We just remodeled the entire place in Jan 2013. New kitchen, new flooring and all new paint. Perfect condition and we know you will treat our home like your own. Julie and Dave

Why the Owner Chose Newport Center, Newport Beach, CA, USA:
The Island is a special place. Plenty to do with shops and restaurants right behind us, yet, it is quiet and so relaxing. We love to go to the Newport Beach, but always happy to come back to the Island.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There really no place like being on the canal! The sidewalks are so inviting. The patio area is perfect for a family BBQ...the dock is great for reading. If you need some shopping time, you are just steps away! The main street is directly behind the cottage. Starbucks is on the corner next to many great eateries! The local island grocery store is cute and has all your last minute food for cooking or you can walk across the bridge to a larger market. Lastly, you can take the ferry across to the sandy beaches of Newport! You will want to come back again and again!
