Newport Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Balboa Island is one of the premium vacation spots in the country. If you're going to vacation at the best, why not stay at the best? This newly remodeled home is perhaps the ideal location on the island. Just feet away from the water and only three houses from the main street makes picking something up from the shops easier than any other spot on the island.

It's on the only beachfront without boat tie ups, completely wide open for better beach enjoyment and absolutely breathtaking views. Located on the South Bay Front provides perfect sun exposure, gentle warm breezes and a direct view of the main inlet harbor.

The house is 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, and a great room with a fantastic entertainment center. In the living room there is a 46 inch HD flat screen television with Direct TV, VHS and DVD Player.

The Master bedroom has a 42 inch HD flat screen television with Direct TV. The other bedrooms have 23 inch HD flat screen televisions with Direct TV. The house sleeps 6 comfortably. Internet access is also available with a modem for Ethernet connection as well as Wi-Fi access.

Island Life

  • 5 of 5

It is all about location! The bedrooms and baths are located toward the back of the house with a hallway door to separate from the living area. At night it is quiet and dark…great for sleeping. In the morning you walk out to the living area and WOW…there's the bay, boats, and beautiful sunlight. So much fun to sit on the patio and watch friendly people go by. The kids played in the sand in front of the house…we didn't have to walk any distance if they needed to run to the restroom. Public dock a few streets down where friends were able to visit in their Duffy and take us for a spin around the bay. Walked down to Village Inn and the stores. Market close by on the Island and a larger one just over the bridge. Walked the dog around the perimeter every day. Hated to leave!!

A Great Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

Great Location... Great Views... Great House... If you're looking for a place to stay on Balboa Island, I would highly recommend this property. Everyone had a wonderful time, and we're already looking forward to coming back next year. The house was more than advertised, and accommodated our large family very well. All three rooms were good size with plenty of closet space. Thank you for a perfect vacation!

Fun Time

  • 5 of 5

Great location - clean - fully equipped. Kayaked everyday - rented the kayaks from a local shop for the week. -walked around the entire island - easy walk - shopped at Fashion Island - spent a lot of time on the patio absorbing the whole Balboa scene - played games - had a family gathering and watched the kids play in the bay - tons of beach toys available - up to date TV's in every room although we never really turned them on, too many other things to do - internet worked fine - all in all perfect vacation.

Ideal location on the bay

  • 4 of 5

This house is in the best spot on Balboa Island. The view of the bay from the patio is spectacular and having a large patio table was a bonus. My husband and I stayed here with our 20 and 19 year old kids. We rented paddle boards that were delivered right to the water in front of us. We also rented a Duffy boat and kept pulling it up on shore in front of the house to get more provisions. We barbequed meals and enjoyed them on the patio and also walked the 1 block to eat at many of the restaurants on Marine Ave. The house can use some updates and minor repairs, but the location and view make it a great place to stay.

Wonderful relaxing setting on a special little "island"

  • 5 of 5

While February is supposed to be the "off season" and rainy time in southern California, we spent 28 glorious, sunny, warm and wonderful days at this waterfront/beachfront cabin on Balboa Island. While it can surely use some "updating" especially in the bedrooms and bathrooms, that was a small price to pay for the BEST LOCATION on Balboa island. It is a 3 minute walk to "town" and located right on the walkway which surrounds the island. Nothing could have been better. The neighbors are even terrific and the rental people were responsive and helpful as well.

The ideal Rental

  • 5 of 5

My two adult daughters & I spent six days at this beautiful house. While the photos are accurate, experiencing this beautiful home & location in person far exceed them. A mere two block walk to Starbucks?? Oh yes, a wonderful bakery just steps before Starbucks? The neighbors & people out walking were so very friendly - as were the various merchants of the local stores/shops. This was far better than any expectations any of us had - plan to return one of these fine days!!!
