Balboa Peninsula House Rental Photos and Description

Beach House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Enjoy all the fun of an invigorating beach vacation in this upscale bungalow located on Newport Beach’s famed Balboa Peninsula. What was once a historical beach cottage has been transformed into a classy and upscale modern marvel - completely rebuilt and re-styled from top to bottom in 2011. The historic heritage of the original home shines through in many of the details, while the remodel also incorporates the finest-quality materials and workmanship. Exquisite custom fixtures and luxurious state-of-the-art modern conveniences can be found throughout. Designed around a unique multi-level floor plan, this charming vacation cottage offers 4 bedrooms and 2-1/4 bathrooms. The Craftsman-style bungalow is an impressive 2,350 square feet . The home presents an elegant beach hideaway boasting imported stone, tile and granite as well as rich wood mouldings and exceptional details. Splendid accommodations for a family, or a group of 6-8. The Upscale Balboa Bungalow is located just a half-block off the beach, in the highly desirable upper Balboa peninsula-area. Even in the height of summer, the home is easy to get to and away from the traffic congestion that occurs further up on the Peninsula.

Furnished with contemporary flair, this bungalow-style residence is welcoming and comfortable. With its ideal location and luxuriously appointed details. The benefits of a posh Newport Beach lifestyle can be yours while staying in this chic and classy home.

Bedrooms – Three bedrooms are located on the main floor(downstairs) – each one featuring Antiquerra custom stone flooring and complimentary wall finishes in neutral tones. Dark wood dressers and iron trimmed-bedframes outfit the bedrooms and contemporary art adorns the walls. Two of the main floor bedrooms feature twin-sized beds while the third 'bunk room' has two sets of contemporary-styled bunk beds. Vaulted wood beam ceilings, skylights and track lighting are found throughout the lower floor bedrooms along with wainscoting and wood mouldings that accentuate the rooms. The bunkroom has a generously-sized closet with sliding mirrored wardrobe doors and custom-built organizers. The upper floor bedroom is light and bright, featuring mahogany red oak flooring, a ceiling fan and recessed can lights. A lovely queen-sized bed is the focal point of the upstairs bedroom and features fine luxury linens.

Bathrooms – The main floor bathroom features a Jack-and-Jill design to allow convenient access from both sides. This bathroom showcases beautiful imported tile work and state-of-the-art brushed nickel plumbing fixtures. A natural rainfall showerhead lends a luxurious spa feel, along with upscale wall finishes and beautiful lighting. The Toto toilet and Zen-style Kohler sink provide modern convenience with a lavish feel. The Balboa Bungalow’s unique floor plan also incorporates a third sink, plus mirror and storage cabinet in one of the lower-floor bedrooms to provide additional vanity space. A full bathroom is also located upstairs. It features a dual-flush Toto toilet and a re-finished vintage soaking tub accented with a brushed stainless wall mount/hand-held shower extension and custom imported tile.

Gourmet Kitchen – Situated upstairs, the full-size kitchen boasts beautiful and durable Cesarstone counters and a custom tile backsplash. Top-of–the-line cabinetry fitted with specialty knobs and drawer pulls features an antiqued finish that perfectly complements the dark mahogany wood floor. Modern stainless steel Kitchen Aid appliances and recessed overhead lighting complete the space and provide a luxurious area for preparing meals. Elegant dishes, flatware and serving pieces are also included. The adjacent dining area has a contemporary 6-seat dining table and flows directly into the living/family room for entertaining convenience.

Upstairs Living/Family Room - Adjacent to the kitchen and dining area, this warm and comfortable space is surrounded by dentil-style crown mouldings, enhanced baseboards and a built-in book shelf. A large Flat Screen TV and comfortable sectional pull-out sofa provide the perfect spot for relaxing. Recessed can lights add a warm glow, as do the two-tone paint finishes and custom wrought-iron railing that flanks the stairs. Sliding doors open onto a large balcony that welcomes the ocean breezes and provides outdoor seating as well as a barbecue area.

Main Floor Living Room – Upon entering the charming Balboa Bungalow, guests are greeted with a light and bright living area complete with custom-tiled fireplace, built-in bookshelves and a Flat Screen TV. The comfy leather sofa and upholstered chairs present a cozy place to relax. Vaulted ceilings with wood beadboard trim convey a craftsman-style feel, as do the custom lighting fixtures and wall finishes. The Antiquerra stone floor keeps the cottage cool and provides the ideal beach house flooring choice.

Computer Nook & Sitting Area – Also located on the lower level is a convenient computer workstation, just off the Living Room. Complimentary wireless internet access allows guests to attend to work, or surf the net during their stay. This area can also provide a quiet respite for reading, video gaming or any other leisure activity.

Laundry Area - Featuring brand new GE washer and dryer, this area is on the main level and provides ample space for attending to laundry needs. A handy Kohler sink is in the laundry area as well.

Front Courtyard Area – Just outside the front door is a lovely tiled courtyard which provides additional space for outdoor enjoyment. A large storage closet is located in the breezeway, perfect for accommodating beach chairs and accessories. The sideyard also features an outdoor shower with warm water for post-beach rinse offs.

Single Car Garage - No worries about where to park the car – an enclosed single-car garage provides parking for one car while a second car may be parked in front of the garage.

This was a one week family outing with 5 yr. old grandson and two days @ Disneyland. Chose this house because in younger days lived @ 41st St. & Seashore, two blocks away & steps from the beach. The house was large & comfortably accommodated 5 adults & child. Plenty of beach chairs & grandson loved the provided boggieboard. Outdoor shower head was inoperable otherwise no problems. Parking a bit of an issue. Would consider a return visit. OLD HOME WEEK.

Great beach house!!!

  • 5 of 5

I had some family coming into town so we decided to rent a beach house for the kids to play at the beach. We were blown away by this rental. It was beautiful with plenty of sleeping space and steps away from the beach. I will be renting this property again!

Highlights of our stay included seamless check in and out, cleanliness of the home, proximity to the beach, outdoor shower. Helpful hints would include more kitchen towels, trundle mattress under the day beds for couples, outdoor carpet under patio table. We would definitely stay in this house again. The location is perfect for walking to restaurants and grocery store. Make sure to bring or rent bikes! We so enjoyed our rides along the beach. The beachside trail starts a few streets from the house and goes to the end of the penninsula.

Awesome House

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome. It has a ton of beds, so you can get a bunch of people into it and everyone will be comfortable. While I knew this going into it, what some people may not realize is that this is one of two homes built on a single lot in Newport Beach. They are built, one behind the other and this is the house in the back. So, while you lose your street front view, it's still a great place to stay. The beach is just a few steps away...maybe a 1 minute walk. Because it's so close to the beach, parking is a premium in the neighborhood, but this house has a long driveway and a garage, so that is an added bonus. Keep in mind you have to share the driveway with the house that's on the front of the lot if it is rented as well, but we didn't have to do that during our stay.

The inside of the house is nice and new. The layout is a little funky on the bottom floor, but it really isn't anything to complain about since it's just bedrooms. The upstairs where the living room, kitchen, dining area and master bedroom is awesome. The appliances and finishes are all new throughout the house. My only complaint to the management company was that the steak knives were dull and the cable tv remote needed to be replaced since the buttons were a little tired on it and had to be pushed really hard in order to get it to work. Other than that, it's an awesome place to stay and would definitely stay here again.

And go to Bear Flag Fish Company for the best fish taco's you've ever had in your life.
