We stayed at this unit in mid June and were lucky to have sun everyday (no June gloom). The unit is upstairs facing the beach and has a nice balcony that our two boys loved to use. They would wave at all the people as they went by on the boardwalk. This unit is right on the beach and boardwalk which is perfect, but it is a huge beach area and a bit of a walk to the water. There is a sidewalk nearby that takes you most of the way so you aren't trudging through the sand for too much of the walk. Restaurants are nearby and the Balboa Pier along with the Fun Zone that our kids loved. We also took the ferry over to Balboa Island and walked around one evening. This is all within walking distance. The unit we stayed in was very nice (Unit B). The owner just recently bought the place and has been fixing it up. It was very clean and had all the amenities we needed. There is garage parking which is wonderful considering how hard it is to park in this area.
