Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I grew up on Balboa Island, just a short walk from where my home on Balboa Island is now. Most of my family still lives on or near Balboa Island today. I am a retired school teacher. I love to travel the world, but my favorite place is still Balboa Island.

Why the Owner Chose Balboa Island, Newport Beach, CA, USA:
I fell in love with this home because it reminded me of a quaint cottage along the coast of France. It has architectural details not commonly found. When I drive over the bridge to Balboa Island it is like coming home. I never tire of the view of the harbor from the bridge.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Balboa Island is island living in a cosmopolitan setting, you have your choice. Balboa Island maintains a casual lifestyle just minutes from world class shopping and dining at Fashion Island and South Coast Plaza. Choose to visit Laguna Beach and other Southern California destinations or stay on the island and walk to our charming village for coffee in the morning. So many choices you'll want to stay longer.
