Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We have been married for 28 years and have 4 wonderful children. Our son is 25 and our 3 girls are 22, 16 and 11.

Why the Owner Chose Newport Center, Newport Beach, CA, USA:
We have been going to Balboa Island for most of our adult life and fell in love with the uniqueness and magic of the Island. 1305 is right at the heart of all the shopping and restaurants that the Island has to offer. The Island truly gives you a small town feel and allows you to get away from all the business of everyday life. Yet, it is just 30 minutes away from just about everything you could do in Southern California. From Disneyland to Fashion Island, etc.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
4 PADDLE BOARDS ARE AVAILABLE for use during your stay and are located behind the house. please be considerate of the lower unit when getting them as they are right outside their door behind the white fence in the alley. Also, there are 4 Paddle Boards and they are meant for both units so please be considerate of how long you are using them.
