Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My husband is a cardiologist, and I am a real estate professional. We live in Phoenix, AZ. We fell in love with the house from the first moment that we saw it. There were already 3 other purchase offers submitted to the seller of the house. We put in our offer at the list minute and crossed our fingers. The rest is history, and we ended up with our dream vacation home.

Why the Owner Chose Balboa Island, Newport Beach, CA, USA:
I spent my first summer on Balboa Island when I was 12 years old. I never forgot the wonderful experience - the beaches, charming houses, boating in the harbor, and the wonderful weather. I always dreamed about owning one of the beautiful houses. And one magical day my dream came true!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of the greatest things about vacationing on the island is that you don't need to get in your car. That was my husband's criteria when we were looking for a vacation home. We love to spend our time biking, walking around the island, and crusing the harbor in our electric Duffy boat. Our house has been described by previous guests as one of the warmest and most comfortable houses that they have ever stayed in. I appreciate the opportunity to have other people enjoy themselves so much during their stay, love to read their entries in our guest book, and work hard to think of everthing that we could do or provide to ensure that our guests have a memorable vacation experience.
