Overview

Balboa Peninsula House Rental Photos and Description

Enjoy your vacation in this 3-bedroom & 2-bathroom Newport Beach property. Prime location with easy access to the beach (just steps away or three homes away) from the beach, in one of the best sections of beaches anywhere, known as the 'Blackies' where surfers go to catch the waves in the morning.

Many popular restaurants (Il Farro, Fly N Fish Oyster Bar & Grill, 21 Oceanfront), bars (Mutt Lynch's) and shops (clothing, gifts, bicycle rentals etc) and convenience store (Famima) are 1 street away in the bustling Newport Pier area. Other popular restaurants (Old Spaghetti Factory, Avila El Ranchito, Mama D's, Crow Burger Kitchen, Chipotle, McDonalds'), Pavilion supermarket, and banks (Chase and Bank of America) are a short stroll (about 10 minutes walk) away.

Other popular restaurants, shopping (Fashion Island), attractions (Balboa Island, Balboa Fun Zone, boat and kayak rentals) etc are a quick drive.

Located close to 55 Freeway for a short drive to other attractions in Orange County/Southern California.

With one Cal king sized bed and two queen sized beds, our property can accommodate up to six people comfortably (max 8 people).

You enter the property up a half staircase onto a patio where you can sit and enjoy the view of the beach while sipping cocktails. Walk inside into a beautiful living-dining area with an adjacent kitchen. The master bedroom and its walk-in closet is on this level as well.

Downstairs has a family room with a tv, 2 more bedrooms (both rooms with queen beds) and a utility area with washer/dryer.

Linens for all beds and bath towels are included.

Property has lots of light and ocean breezes - two of the big advantages in vacationing this close to the beach.

No pets. No smoking.

There is a cleaning fee to be added to the rental rate.

Due to the front unit/ back unit floorplan of this property (versus the much more common upper unit/ lower unit floorplan) there is great deal of privacy. The 3-bedroom is the front unit with a patio.

The location, lifestyle and fun associated with this home is wonderful, and I hope, be part of it for your very memorable vacation.

Newly installed carpet.

About Quynh August

Husband and wife bought this property for their first home. Husband owns a law firm which wife helps to run it. Both have been living in Orange County for a long time...love the weather, the people, the food.

Quynh August purchased this house in 2009

Why Quynh August chose Balboa Peninsula

Bought this home a few years ago. Fell in love with the house at first sight. Great location with steps away from the beach. Plenty of romantic walks on the boardwalk in the evenings and summer parties on the beach (while food being prepped very close by). Love the beautiful sunsets over the Catalina Island and the ocean. Really can't beat the location, location and location.

What makes this house unique

Sun, sand and sea at the doorsteps. Plus great restaurants within walking distance or a quick drive away. Best part of the house is the unique raised patio off the front looking out to the sand and the sea.

Great Place and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Exceeded all expectations that we had. It was a great location only a couple blocks from the pier and all the happenings of downtown. The house was very well kept and had everything we needed for a great stay in Newport Beach. Only positive things to say about the house and the overall experience.

Great beach rental!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, perfect for families. All amenities. We had six people: Four adults, two teenagers, and one toddler and were very comfortable in this house for six nights, including New Years Eve. I would recommend this house for its proximity to everything in the area. Neighbors are friendly, but parking is tight so walk or rent bikes at Back Alley Bikes in the fun zone, ride them up and down the boardwalk, ride to the Huntington Pier. Take the ferry to Balboa Island. Visit Fashion Island. Must see Crystal Cove State Park, eat at the restaurant, they validate your parking. Rent a sailboat or Duffy electric boat and tour the area by water. Go surfing or boogie boarding! Go swimming! You can rent anything and everything for your stay...be conscious, be kind, and you will have a great time.

For the past 7 years, we take one week to escape the heat and rent a beach house in Newport. We are a family of 8. I can honestly say this was one of the very best experiences yet. Not only was the house in a perfect location, it provided everything we needed as if we were at home. I love that it had a garage and a washer and dryer that was in the house and not coin operated. In making the arrangements they were so accommodating and friendly. We hope we will be able to stay in this home again next year!

Not all Business - added some Pleasure!

  • 4 of 5

I booked this place with my colleagues so we could enjoy some beach time while working. It was totally worth it. There is so much to do along the beach, additionally we drove into Balboa Island. House is neat and clean, plenty of amenities.

Only thing I had wanted (and maybe I just didn't find) would be beach chairs.

The owner points out that the parking garage is for a small car. But I would argue it is for a VERY small car, like for a mini cooper. The average sedan does not fit, causing you have to find parking along the street (very rarely available) or in the lot where you need to pay. Luckily during paying hours I was usually gone so it wasn't bad. I would recommend this place for a family, for a group of friends. Hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!

Room enough

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. Clean and comfortable. The ample table gave us space to gather, yet having a separate space downstairs was welcomed as well. The balcony provided a great spot for morning coffee and watching the waves.
