This is the place to stay. Close to the beach and major roadways. Yet far enough away from the beach crazyness. Quiet residential area.. The view is outstanding. We watched the sunset over the Pacific from the deck (very cool).. There is nothing blocking your view. There is a park in front of the condo. We biked to the beach a few times to both Newport and Balboa piers with a breakfast stop at Charlie's Chilli...by the Newport Beach Pier..... Excellent Nash Petunia!
