San Diego is about 80 miles South with its zoo, Sea World; Wild Animal Park in Escondido (outstanding, my favorite), Lego Land in Carlsbad (about 60 miles) No pets, no smoking on the premises.

 

Owner info

About the owner: This was my family's 'beach house'. I spent summers and weekends here growing up. It is a 'family oriented home'.

Why the Owner Chose Balboa Peninsula, Newport Beach, CA, USA:
Immaculate; perfect location on the bay beach where children can play all day. A perfect place for a VACATION. Park your car in the garage and enjoy the view. We are located between Los Angeles, Hollywood and San Diego, all of which have world renowned attractions.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. The home is located right on the bay with views of Harbor Island, Bay Ialand, Balboa Island as well as the San Gabriel Mountains. The ocean beach is an easy walk just 2 blocks away. The covered front porch is a perfect place to watch the ever changing panorama on the bay.
