39th Street provides a very convenient beach location. Balboa Gem is just 8 houses from the sand, so it's an easy walk to the beach. The Newport Beach boardwalk is only a few streets away, as is the Newport Pier and 38th Street Park. The home is located at the base of the Balboa Peninsula, not too far from PCH, so it's easy to get to the home, even in the height of summer. Further up the tip of the peninsula it gets very congested with traffic during the summer months and requires a longer commute in.
