Owner has been an Island resident for 23 years.
Having lived in Newport Beach for 40+ years (Big Canyon, Promontory Bay, Bayshores) we always knew there was something special about the Island and we waited to find the perfect place. The Bayfront house on Little Balboa Island came up for sale and we knew it was the place to buy. Little Island is a little quieter and a lot warmer than South Bay with more parking yet only a 3 block walk to down town.
Guests enjoy being on the water with beautiful views of Newport Harbor. Sandy beach in front of the duplex for swimming, relaxing on the beach, kayaking, paddle boarding or crabbing (an Island favorite!)
