Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: We have lived on Balboa Island since 1987. When we drive over the bridge we always feel we are going on vacation even after all these years. We now have a vacation home in Idaho and rent out our Balboa Island home when we are away. It is fully furnished with all our own furniture and we DON'T consider this a 'rental home'.

Why the Owner Chose Newport Center, Newport Beach, CA, USA:
We live here because we feel safe here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love to take the local ferry across to Balboa (Pacific Ocean) and walk along the beach. There are many restaurants within walking distance. The 'Island' is quiet and safe. You can fish from the local public piers and walk 1 block to the main street to shop. There is a local market, restaurants and a local saloon.Fashion Island Shopping center is 5 minutes away by car.
