About the owner: I moved to Balboa Island 20 years ago and fell in love with the warm, friendly lifestyle.
Why the Owner Chose Newport Center, Newport Beach, CA, USA:
I loved everything about it -- the location, the bright, open feeling, the kitchen upgrades, the hardwood floors, layout of the house and TWO patios. It just feels like a happy place. Please check out my reviews. They can tell you why so many come back year after year as their annual summer tradition.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Drive over the bridge onto Balboa Island and you will sense an 'ahh' feeling of leaving the stresses and noises of the outside world far behind. I'm not kidding. I've lived on the island for 20-plus years and I still feel it every time I drop into the village. And a stay at my beach cottage will remind you of simpler times -- bike riding, walks along the beach, frozen bananas, friends over for BBQs -- life's simple pleasures in a bright and airy setting that turns cozy by night around the warm fireplace.
