Property description

This is a lovely, historic Balboa Island Cottage! Tastefully decorated to make your Balboa Island Vacation relaxing and comfortable. There are three bedrooms: the first has a triple bunk bed and a Queen Murphy Bed, the Master has a king and the third bedroom has four bunks and a king bed. There is a den with a queen futon couch and a large chair and ottoman which converts to a twin bed. The den opens into a large brick patio with seating area, umbrella and barbeque. The house is equipped with every amenity and is located eight houses from the North Bay and a short block from the Balboa Island Ferry. The ferry connects with the Balboa Peninsula, the fun zone, rental boats (motor and sail), and the surf. We are half and hour from Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm; 15 minutes from shopping, fine restaurants and entertainment in South Coast Plaza, Newport Beach and Laguna.

The island itself is a step back in time. Truly, once you have slept on our island... it will be hard to leave...

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: We bought this house when our 7 children were young. It is the house of expanding walls! We now have 26 grandchildren (24 under 12) and 'the beach house' is as much theirs as ours. It is a family gathering place and is and has been a wonderful place of many memories! We want others to feel the comfort we have here. We treat it as a home, not a 'rental'.

Why the Owner Chose Balboa Island, Newport Beach, CA, USA:
Balboa Island is a quintessential step back in time! It is the place children should experience from the gentle Bay to the ferry connecting to the penninsula. It is a place where parents can give their 5 year old money to walk down to the store and not worry! Where a 5 year old feels 'old' because they can be treated like children of 'old'. It is a magical place of rest and relax steps from the hubhub of Newport Shopping and todays demands. When you cross the bridge to the island and see the sails on the boats, your heart sails! For young or old, it is the best!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The island is a separated from todays world as you choose to make it! It is 20 minutes to Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm, 10 minutes to Southcoast Plaza, 10 minutes to Newport Fashion Island, minutes to great golf, tennis and water activities. But, for total relaxation ride a bike or walk the island,shop our Marine Street specialty shops, ride the ferry to the Balboa Penninsula and have dinner, ride the ferris wheel, carousel and play in the arcades; or rent an electric boat, grab a pizza and have dinner cruising around the Bay. The options are endless!
