Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: My husband and I live in Orange County about a 20 minute drive from Balboa Island. We raised our three children here and made many day trips to Balboa Island with our children. Eventually, we were able to buy a property on the Island. We now have 5 grandchildren plus two daughters in law and one son in law. Although we rent our beach house we always reserve a week every summer both the upper and lower unit for our family. We have made wonderful memories there with our family over the years.

Why the Owner Chose Balboa Island, Newport Beach, CA, USA:
We love Balboa Island !! My husband and I always comment as we cross Pacific Coast Highway and make our way toward the Balboa Island Bridge that we feel a little surge of excitement that we are approaching the Island. It is so scenic and serene. If we are just there for one day, it really feels like a short get-away from everyday life.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our property is located 3 houses in from the north bay at the end of Garnet. There is a public dock one block away. Our grandson caught his first fish just holding a line on that dock (we really didn't expect that). We have 2 kayaks and 2 bicycles that are shared by both units. The small beach at the end of Garnet is a perfect spot to relax and ideal for families with small children. Steps away from our property so it's easy to go back and forth if necessary to retrieve the sunblock or beach pail. It is a short walk to the ferry and a very pleasant walk to Marine Ave. (the main street) to enjoy shopping, dining, Balboa Bars etc. If you want to see some of the local sights (Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, etc.) you are definitely centrally located and no more than a 20 minute drive. Also, I must mention that the lower unit although smaller has a very large patio that is like having an extra room of outdoor space. It is especially nice for people who just need a place to enjoy the outdoors. We also have an automatic awning over the downstairs patio. If you happen to rent both units for a family or large group you will find that patio a perfect setting for all to gather. We keep two banquet tables and 8 folding bridge chairs in the downstairs unit closet. We place 2 banquet tables alongside the existing patio table and have enough seating for our entire family to share a meal. I have observed many people who rent both units do the same.
