The full fireworks show can be seen from the bay just one block away.
Parking for two cars is provided in a street level carport. Street parking is also available, and due to the proximity to the downtown main street, there is a frequent turn-over, so finding additional places within a block is usually possible.
Many of our guests come back year after year for their family vacations. They enjoy our pride of ownership in our well maintained, nicely furnished and spotless beach house. Among our rental agents, it is considered the cleanest house on the island.
This beach house is uniquely situated on a southern corner lot with plenty of sunny windows and ocean breezes. Part of the charm of Balboa Island is the layout of the lots but many of the houses are sandwiched together blocking good light and breezes. If you want to escape the heat of your hometown, our house is your best choice for comfort.

Year Purchased: 1930
About the owner: My sister and I grew up in La Habra Heights where our favorite pass time was going to the beach. Now I live in the mountains near Lake Tahoe and my sister lives in Redlands. We enjoy getting together every year for a few weeks at our family beach house on Balboa Island.
Why the Owner Chose Newport Center, Newport Beach, CA, USA:
My grandmother bought this property around 1930 from her sister who lived a couple blocks away on Apolena. When I was in high school, my parents built the existing duplex and my mother lived there for many years. Now my sister and I are lucky owners and dream of our retirement on the Island someday.
