About John Davies
Sharon and I met as teenagers, we have been married 41 years, have 3 children, 1 grandchild, dog, cats and 30 chickens. We spend the summers in the East and bounce back and forth to Balboa in the winter. Balboa is like a little village, you walk every where, it is very safe and friendly. Our roof deck is a great spot for a sunset cocktail and BBQ dinner. The home is open and airy. We walk in the mornings and basically decide what fun thing we want to do. The food is really diverse so we can get whatever we feel like. We are looking to have quality people into our home who will treat it respectfully. We expect the best from people and have not been dissapointed. We like art and have a vaired selection in the house. Usually our home is the center for family and friend gatherings and we enjoy cooking and entertaining.
John Davies purchased this house in 2004
Why John Davies chose Balboa Island
It is a really fun place to be, walking to dinner and stores. Biking or swimming, surfing and all water sports.Super safe and friendly. It is only 15 minutes from John Wayne/Orange County airport, which is a small easy airport. My wife's family spent their summers on Balboa and we have cointinued the tradition. We have family renunions here and we are steps from the bay with a constant flow of boats and activities. The bay beaches are perfect foe smaller kids with no waves and nice sand. We are litterly just steps to the bay which makes it easy to come and go. We are orginally from California and could have chosen any beach community, we choose Balboa Island and are very happy there.
What makes this house unique
Just fun! Walking, biking, eating... it is all very close. There is always soemthing happening. It could be an art show, kids sailing class or watching artist paint along the board walk. We like the fact that we rarely use our car or leave the island.It is very relaxing and easy. Be sure to try the famous chocolate dipped frozen bannanas, mexican food or fat free yougurt with lot's of toppings!. We can eat our way around the island. On the health side there is Pilates/Yoga on th eisland and easy running and walking areas. The ocean is a ferry ride away for large sandy beaches with surf and biking/walking paths.
