Balboa Peninsula Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath--Sleeps 6

The Balboa Gem presents a beautiful property located within the first block of Newport Beach. Prepare to be charmed and impressed upon reaching the top of the stairs that lead to this finely-appointed upper unit. A December 2011 remodel has created a cozy beach villa where guests can relax and escape the pressures of the day-to-day world. Balboa Gem is ideally located on the Balboa Peninsula less than a block from the sands of Newport Beach.

Bedrooms & Bath:

This upper-floor unit is a 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, easily accommodating up to 6 guests. Both bedrooms feature a queen-sized bed with linens, while a leather sofa sleeper is included in the living room. Each bedroom has a flat screen TV, closet space, contemporary furniture, black-out shades and a ceiling fan. The bathroom has a large tub/shower combo, Black Galaxy granite counter tops, plenty of cabinet space and fluffy towels.

Kitchen & Dining:

A gourmet chef’s kitchen includes every amenity necessary to create special meals - or a quick breakfast or sandwich. Brand new high-end stainless steel appliances compliment Italian granite counter tops, while finely-detailed cabinetry and a Kholer sink/faucet complete the upscale look. A four-seat dining table is situated in the dining area and provides a lovely spot for relaxing.

Other Details:

Special touches abound in the details, such as leaded glass accents in the front door, modern light fixtures, crown mouldings, sleek window coverings and contemporary artwork & decor. The Balboa Gem features beautiful stone flooring throughout and custom stone baseboard treatments. We offer a comfortable living space where a flat screen TV/DVD is provided, as well as a ceiling fan to circulate fresh air. A spacious rooftop deck provides an additional dining and relaxing area with a 4-seat patio set, gas barbeque and potted plants. A shared laundry area with full-size washer and dryer is included, as well as parking for one compact size car in the garage below. Beach chairs, umbrella and beach towels are provided. An outdoor hot and cold shower is located on the east side of the property for post-beach rinse offs.

When it comes to a relaxing beach vacation, the Balboa Beach Gem has it all – unbeatable value, stylish 4-star accommodations, budget-friendly rates, and a fantastic location. Guests will feel right at home in this cozy beach villa and will want to return year after year to enjoy the charms and fun of Newport Beach.

What makes this condo unique

39th Street provides a very convenient beach location. Balboa Gem is just 8 houses from the sand, so it's an easy walk to the beach. The Newport Beach boardwalk is only a few streets away, as is the Newport Pier and 38th Street Park. The home is located at the base of the Balboa Peninsula, not too far from PCH, so it's easy to get to the home, even in the height of summer. Further up the tip of the peninsula it gets very congested with traffic during the summer months and requires a longer commute in.

Great Ecperience

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I rented this property last spring and cannot say enough wonderful things about it. The location is literally just steps from the beach, cross a small road and the beach entrance is right there! Perfectly located near a small shopping plaza with a grocery store within walking distance. Plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance too. This part of the beach was very relaxed and the area was nice and quiet. The apartment was very nice, light and bright and very clean. The roof top patio was lovely and has a barbecue and patio table. The only downside to the area is if you have more than one vehicle, parking is extremely limited so take advantage of the parking space that comes with your rental and leave any other cars behind! I keep wanting to book again, but apparently the word has gotten out about this little gem because it is always booked when I have the time to make a trip out!

Good Location, Comfortable apartment

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Balboa Gem for 11 nights while visiting our daughter. The location was great for us as we had our bikes and could hop on the bike path to the wedge or to Huntington Beach. It is a quick walk to the beach. The kitchen had whatever we needed for meals. Denise was attentive to all of our needs or requests.

Comfortable condo close to the beach

  • 3 of 5

In the heart of Balboa area and close to the beach. Lots of activity but don't expect a quiet get away. Beds are comfortable and the condo is clean. A funky and nice get away.

We were there during a heat wave and would have liked an umbrella on the patio area.
