Why The Owner chose Balboa Peninsula

This house has been in our family since 1978. As a kid, we vacationed here annually from L.A. My folks finally bought a beach house at their favorite vacation spot after almost two decades of renting by the week. They couldn't have picked a better location for the price. Walking distance to the finest beach in So. Cal. We pass the discount rate to the families who we enjoy staying with us.

What makes this house unique

Fantastic location for a beach vacation. The house is located on Balboa Blvd. between 18th and 19th streets. The Newport Beach pier is an extention of 'The Plaza' which is at 21st Street. The Plaza contains restaurants, surf shops, pubs, beach rental shops, and many other types of stores. The pier has excellent fishing and is a great place for evening walks. There is also a nice restaurant at the end of the pier. You can find surf lessons every summer morning at several locations on the beach. The bay and harbor are out the back door and down the alley.

AMAZING Location!! You've gotta go!

  • 5 of 5

While the home is quite old, the owners of the property were absolutely great to work with. The tenants before us messed the place up really good but they worked tirelessly to make the home great again. You can't beat the location! It's a great home for those with big families who want to spend quality time with them. We highly recommend this property and hope to be able to return one day.

Nothing fancy, but perfect for our family

Clean and comfortable and you can't beat the location. Love that there are beach toys/chairs/bikes etc for our use. This was our second stay at this place, hopefully not the last!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Just a short walk to beach and bay. Beds were very comfortable. Don't expect to use bikes that are provided, they are very rusty. Great location at an affordable price.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The house is older but the location is great!! Our kids loved the complimentary bicycles too. Having garage space for our vehicle was a plus (our Dodge Durango fit with no problem) and we walked everywhere. Shops are close and the beach is a block away. We loved having the doors and windows open to smell the sea air!

Wonderful location and amenities with plenty of room to relax.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 (4 kids between ages 7 and 15) really enjoyed staying here. The location is very convenient to rent paddle boards just up the street to use in the harbor. There were bikes and boogey boards included with the house and we used them! Neighbors were quiet and the garage was a great feature to keep our van secure while we spent days at the beach or around the peninsula and Balboa Island. We really have no complaints about the property - it was perfect for us.
