Balboa Peninsula House Rental Photos and Description
A single story house, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Balboa Pearl is a classic beach gem, offering a wide range of amenities and a highly desirable upper-Peninsula location. Big on both style and value, the Balboa Pearl was recently remodeled and features all-new contemporary furnishings and tasteful décor in neutral colors. Flooring consists of hardwood and ceramic tile, which provide the perfect backdrop for beach living. Fresh paint, enhanced baseboard moldings and contemporary window coverings lend additional warmth and style to this charming beach residence. Situated on a quiet residential street less than a block from the warm sands of Newport Beach, the single-story Spanish-style cottage will make you feel right at home.

Sleeping & Living Areas:

The Pearl features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in approximately 1,100 square feet and can accommodate up to 8 guests. The master bedroom features a brand-new Queen sized bed complete with luxury linens. A set of twin beds can be found in the guest room, while the living room also includes a pull-out sleeper sofa. A third bedroom in the rear of the cottage(which is not a part of the main house) has the added feature of a private exterior keyed entry – making it perfect for sharing with a second couple, extended family or visitors. Within the rear guest suite is a full bathroom and a large desk area, as well as a wardrobe and plenty of storage space.

Modern Amenities:

The Pearl boasts state-of-the-art electronics and has 4 brand-new flat screen TVs. A TV/DVD combo is located in each bedroom and also in the living room. The living room television also includes a Blu-ray DVD player. Complimentary wireless internet access (WiFi) can be found throughout the home. Each bedroom is also equipped with a remote-controlled ceiling fan and the home has a heating system for chilly winter evenings. The cottage’s main bathroom features a renovated shower/tub combo and showcases beautiful tile work and top-quality fixtures. The second bathroom within the guest suite has a stall shower and spa-like touches.

Kitchen, Dining & Outdoor Living Space:

Balboa Pearl’s spacious kitchen is well-outfitted with everything needed to create a fabulous gourmet meal or a simple supper. Appliances include a brand-new dishwasher as well as a recently upgraded microwave, oven/range and refrigerator. All appliances feature black finishes. Black Galaxy countertops also enhance the kitchen and provide an upscale feel. The adjacent dining area features an elegant 4-seat dining table - although many Pearl guests will opt to do their dining outside on the spacious front patio. The patio effectively extends the home’s living space and provides a perfect setting for morning coffee or al fresco dining. A dining table and additional chairs encourage restful evenings and a gas barbecue is provided for outdoor cooking. A view of the ocean and fresh sea breezes can be enjoyed from the patio, while delighting in the beach-town ambiance. Guests will also appreciate the hot & cold outdoor shower that is located on the east side of the cottage.

We had a great time using "The Pearl" as a home base. We had a great time at the beach and had fun at Disneyland as well. Thanks for being flexible with us. We loved being here!

Great house on a great beach

A very comfortable house only a block and a half from a gorgeous beach that was great for swimming in the waves, surfing, strolling and running (either on the beach or along a paved trail). The beach also had friendly volleyball players.

We are all gourmet chefs and the kitchen was well stocked with a BBQ, pots, knives and utensils, so that we could cook for the seven of us all week, which we prefer to restaurants. The large Pavilions grocery is only 8 blocks away.

Check out the old-fashioned boardwalk on the east side of the peninsula. Great ice cream. There is a good play park for tots on Balboa Blvd. between 38th and 36th. Alta Coffee on 31th Street has delicious baked goods. Near Pavilions get gelato at Whimsical Gelato.

Note that one of the three bedrooms, the master-style bedroom, is down a pedestrian alley from the main house separated by the laundry room. This worked well for us because one set of grandparents could watch TV late into the night without waking the baby.

The host for the house was warm and friendly and very responsive when we had a little trouble starting the furnace early in the morning. (Thanks, Denise.)

We had a great family vacation and so much more comfortable and less expensive than a hotel.

We loved staying at Balboa Pearl! It is nicer than what the photos show. We loved being so close to the beach and walking to nearby restaurants and shops! The property manager was extremely nice and helped us feel right at home. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.

Thank you for your house over the Thanksgiving Holiday. We built wonderful memories. The neighbors were very nice and the kids enjoyed walking to the beach every day. This house is adorable and very nicely renovated.

My family and I stayed @ the Balboa Pearl Rental in January 2011. It was a brand new rental, nicely done (whoever the designer is) , the price was so affordable you can't beat it. Having a TV in every room was really nice. Since my inlaws stayed with us, it was nice to have a exterior bedroom with a separate entry. The owner has renovated it nicely to include a hot/cold shower on the alley way of the rental. We loved the easy access to the beach. The rental was better than it was in the pictures actually. Looking forward to coming back again.
