We very much enjoyed our week vacation in this serene bayview Balboa Peninsula beach house. Directly across the street is a quiet little beach with lapping bay waters and a swim-out dock. It's not crowded and families hang out there during the day. A two block walk or bike ride puts you at the ocean, lovely wide beach with lifeguards and a younger vibe. The house is clean, well-maintained and nicely laid out with a large living/dining room that faces the bay. Kitchen was convenient, loved the washer-dryer in the garage (a must for the beach), and the provided bicycles of all sizes - no need to rent. Everything in the unit was as pictured, no issues at all. We will be back!
