Rental ID #NB107GS (Sleeps 8)
Nestled on exclusive Peninsula Point, this 3-bedroom, 2 1/2 -bath home provides peace and quiet right on the beach, with the added pleasure of one-of-a-kind, west-facing views of glorious sunsets, Catalina Island and the Balboa Pier.
Upon arrival, guests are immediately drawn into the beautifully sunlit living area, which is surrounded by double sets of French doors to let in the great outdoors - whether opened or closed - to enjoy the best of our Southern California lifestyle. Contemporary leather sofas, indoor/outdoor Mexican floor tile, pounded tin ceilings, gas log fireplace, and flat-screen TV complete the casually elegant ambiance of the main floor.
The living area gives way to the adjacent dining room with formal seating for 6. Just beyond, the fully-stocked gourmet kitchen offers high-end dishes and pots and pans, along with plenty of storage space. Dark granite countertops and stainless steel appliances anchor the main work space.
Outdoor dining and barbecue areas are just outside the French doors. An old-fashioned boardwalk beckons everyone on the patio to venture out to the sand and sea beyond.
Note: We are sorry, but the in-ground spa on the beachfront patio is off-limits to guests' use. The spa cover is locked to the best of our ability; however, parental supervision of young children on the patio is required at all times:
Moving upstairs, guests are welcomed by an additional living area with vaulted ceilings, cozy leather seating and gorgeous ocean views. This retreat offers plenty of books to peruse, gas fireplace, and small flat-screen TV. French doors open wide to the expansive view, and relaxing balcony seating - front row seats for spectacular Pacific Ocean sunsets!
The master bedroom is spacious, with a large tiled fireplace, and private balcony with a side view to the ocean. Included en suite is a large walk-in closet, and a master bath with a huge skylight, oversized soaking tub, and tiled shower.
The second bedroom provides a full/twin bunk bed arrangement to maximize sleeping space. A queen bed in the third bedroom is flanked by French doors that open out to stunning ocean views on the beachfront balcony. The upstairs hallway bath has a tub/shower combo, with a separate double sink area.
Extra sleeping arrangements are provided by 1 twin trifold floor mat with pillow and linens - best suited for children. A twin rollaway bed can be rented and delivered, if desired, in lieu of the floor mat.
Located in the quaint and exclusive neighborhood of Peninsula Point, the Balboa Pier is a 10-15 minute walk along the beachside boardwalk. A bike ride on its designated bike path leads from Balboa through Newport Beach and all the local diversions - including paddleboards, kayaks, wave-runners, deep-sea fishing tours and the Catalina Island Flyer water taxi service. A short ferry-ride, whether on foot, on bike, or in your car, offers quick access to Balboa Island.
For children, the "Fun Zone" at the Balboa Pier, with its signature Ferris-Wheel, offers the excitement of arcade-style entertainment, food and beverages.
For adults, the Balboa and Newport Piers offer nightlife with an array of restaurants and live music venues. Don't forget, you are only minutes away from world-class shopping and dining at South Coast Plaza and Fashion Island.
PARKING: Two-car garage plus two spaces in full driveway.
Full-size washer and dryer located in the garage.
We offer competitive pricing for our guests with beach-cruiser bike rentals for the entire family from infants to adults; free delivery and pick-up included, along with helmets and locks.
All bed/bath/kitchen/beach linens for the maximum number of guests are provided as part of the cleaning/linen fee. Four beach chairs are provided for your use.
