4BR Bayview Vacation Rental Newport Beach, California USA
This beautiful four bedroom, two bath home is located in one of Orange County's most popular destination spot - Balboa Island in Newport Beach. Located just five homes in from the boardwalk and Newport Harbor, "The Cottage" enjoys one of the best locations around - the open ocean is about 15 minutes away by foot and ferry; the Island's many shops, bakeries, and restaurants are just down the street; and Fashion Island, one of the country's premiere shopping centers, is five minutes away by car.
There is a view of the water from one of the upstairs bedrooms.
The Cottage is approximately 1,600 square feet and is beautifully decorated in a California beach motif. It is clean and well maintained. It is an original home but it has had a number of upgrades, including: double-pane windows, hardwood floors, new appliances, etc.
The bottom level consists of an open den and dining area with a table that can seat six to eight; a small bedroom with a twin bed; a bathroom (shower, vanity and toilet); a full kitchen; and a laundry room. The second level consists of three bedrooms and one full bath. There is also a sink in the master bedroom. The bed configuration upstairs is one full, one queen, and one king bed.
A fabulous brick front patio is the perfect spot for outdoor dining and relaxing. There is a sofa and two chairs plus a patio table with four comfortable chairs.
There is also a rear patio with lovely plants, a water fountain, barbecue, and patio table with four chairs.
The boardwalk that encircles the island is one of the most scenic spots around. During the summer, you can often see sailboat regattas in the harbor, and pelicans and sea lions. This boardwalk is off-limits to skateboarders and bicyclists so it's the perfect place to enjoy peaceful walks.
The home's amenities include a side-by-side washer and dryer; a garage (one space in a two-car garage); a 50' 1080 HD flat-screen TV in the den; a flat-screen TV in the master bedroom and another small flat-screen in the 2nd bedroom upstairs; cable TV, Blue Ray DVD, and wireless Internet service. The fully-appointed kitchen includes a newer gas range, super-quiet dishwasher, a microwave; and most all small appliances.
The one-bedroom, one bath apartment located above garage is also available for rent at $1400 per week during the summer. This apartment sleeps three (one full bed, one twin bed).
During the summer months, this home rents on a Saturday-to-Saturday basis only, with check-in at 3:00 pm and check-out at 10:00 am.

We had a wonderful family vacation . The location was perfect !
Thank you for your review. I hope you will return next summer!
Wonderful Cottage - Clean, Roomy and for us the perfect spot!
Our family loved this place! It is located on South side of the island, on east side of Marine, just a handful of homes away from South Bay beach side. No car traffic really, because this location becomes a one way in the opposite direction of the flow of traffic on Marine. There is alot of foot traffic, but so fun for people watching and we find the people fun. The front porch is a wonderful place to sit and have a meal and do this.
We did have several people inquire while we were sitting there about renting this property. One morning we found a fellow had come through our gate and was writing info from the rental sign down...but that is not the fault of the property owner, this fellow did not respect boundaries. We have no hesitancy in renting again just because of this.
What makes the cottage perfect for us is that we could bring our children, grandchildren and our beloved dog! She loved her time on the island too!
The owner, Sharon, is very on top of things that needed attention to, and very friendly. We appreciated this.
Everyone in my family LOVED there time in the cottage. I have been asked by several people for this cottage's info, and I may regret sharing because we may find it hard to book a spot!
Excellent condition and very comfortable
The home was perfect for our family. Great memories that will last a lifetime. We look so forward to going back next summer.
Thank you for your glowing review. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the house. I hope you will return.
ENJOYED OUR STAY.
Our family of five stayed in this property from June 3rd through June 10th, 2015. The owner is kind and accommodating. Our children keep asking us to go back and saying how much fun they had. The beach at Corona del Mar State Park is extremely close. The house is perfectly situated on Balboa Island. You should seriously consider renting this property for your family trip.
Family get Away!
Wonderful place to stay and very accommodating. There were 5 of us and plenty of sleeping space and then some. Great patio for relaxing and/or people watching and the best part was the location. The kids could safely walk to get their balboa bars and well as get to and from the Fun Zone. We enjoyed the great restaurants on the island and they were all in walking distance for our Lovely home. We will be renting it again.
