Overview

About the property

Enjoy your vacation in this 2-bedroom & 1-bathroom Newport Beach property. Prime location with easy access to the beach (just steps away or three homes away) from the beach, in one of the best sections of beaches anywhere, known as the 'Blackies' where surfers go to catch the waves in the morning.

Many popular restaurants (Il Farro, Fly N Fish Oyster Bar & Grill, 21 Oceanfront), bars (Mutt Lynch's) and shops (clothing, gifts, bicycle rentals etc) and convenience store (Famima) are 1 street away in the bustling Newport Pier area. Other popular restaurants (Old Spaghetti Factory, Avila El Ranchito, Mama D's, Crow Burger Kitchen, Chipotle, McDonalds'), Pavilion supermarket, and banks (Chase and Bank of America) are a short stroll (about 10 minutes walk) away.

Other popular restaurants, shopping (Fashion Island), attractions (Balboa Island, Balboa Fun Zone, boat and kayak rentals) etc are a quick drive.

Located close to 55 Freeway for a short drive to other attractions in Orange County/Southern California.

`

With 2 queen sized beds and sofa bed in the living room, our property can accommodate up to four people comfortably (max 6 people).

Internet wifi on the property.

Full kitchen with refrigerator and dishwasher.

2 cable tv - one in the living room area and another in the bedroom with the queen bed.

Linens for all beds and bath towels are included.

No pets. No smoking. Single car garage parking (for small to medium sized vehicles)

There is a cleaning fee to be added to the rental rate.

The 2-bedroom is located on the back half of the duplex (front unit/ back unit floor plan) which provides more privacy (versus the much more common upper unit/ lower unit floorplan).

A single car garage is available which fits small/medium sized vehicle.

The location, lifestyle and fun associated with this home is wonderful, and I hope, be part of it for your very memorable vacation.

About Quynh August

Husband and wife bought this property for their first home. Husband owns a law firm which wife helps to run it. Both have been living in Orange County for a long time...love the weather, the people, the food.

Quynh August purchased this house in 2009

Why Quynh August chose Balboa Peninsula

Bought this home a few years ago. Fell in love with the house at first sight. Great location with steps away from the beach. Plenty of romantic walks on the boardwalk in the evenings and summer parties on the beach (while food being prepped very close by). Love the beautiful sunsets over the Catalina Island and the ocean. Really can't beat the location, location and location.

What makes this house unique

Sun, sand and sea at the doorsteps. Plus great restaurants within walking distance or a quick drive away.

great place great location

  • 3 of 5

My only complaint was the parking which was scarce. There was a parking garage which only a small car could fit into. Maybe could have fit a medium sized car in. But someone parked a fixer upper right across the alley form the garage making it extremely difficult to get even a Toyota Corolla in.

We loved the place and the location

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The location of this property is great. I took my mom and 4 kids and it was convenient to walk to and from the beach when needed. We were able to rent bikes just a street over and ride down the boardwalk to the park and balboa.

My kids are little so we made it work with space but it would be crowded with 6 people otherwise. The parking is limited near by and it was not convenient to have to move my vehicle out of the garage while the cleaning crew was using the washer/dryer in the garage for the front unit. There is also only hanging space and one shelf in one of the bedrooms so space for folded clothes in that room was limited.

Even though there were a few inconveniences, overall it was a good place to stay and we would stay there again.

Nice little place

  • 4 of 5

A nice little place only a few hundred feet from the sand and the boardwalk! It's not the biggest place on the block but still quite comfortable and steps away from great food and all kinds of beach type action!! It was a bit hot for our stay so don't expect AC but we managed several fans are available. TV is a smart tv with wifi connection so we were able to easily get onto Hulu and Netflix. Full kitchen with everything you need.
