Balboa Peninsula House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This is a very large 4-bedroom, 2 bath home. Both bathrooms are located in the hallway, which make it a great set-up for two families to share the unit (or even one large family) - no going through a bedroom to get to the bathroom! The kitchen is large and has been remodeled. It is larger than the average kitchen compared to most units in Newport Beach. There is a table for six people and also bar seating for four more. The living room has a couch, loveseat and a chair with a 40' TV. On the balcony which has ocean/beach views, there are two additional tables, chairs and a barbeque. There is a shared (with lower unit) non-coin op washer/dryer unit located downstairs in a large laundry room, which has room to store bikes, surf boards, etc. You have one parking space in the garage, which is located off the alley behind the house. The downstairs is a two bedroom /one bath unit is also available for rent if you need more space.

Keywords: Upstairs unit of a duplex (condo) located five houses from the beach (steps to sand).

great house and location! We had 3 families stay in the house and it was roomy and short walk to the beach. Great for families with kids. Owner was very quick to respond and very helpful. Would stay here again!

Great house. Very clean with lots of beds and very nice bathrooms. Bikes, beach chairs, & boogie boards in the laundry room. Works well for a large family. Definitely will come again.

Family Reunion 2015

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location to the Newport Beach. Just a few houses away and no busy streets to cross (i.e. Balboa Blvd). We actually rented both the upper and lower units. This made it ideal for our grandkids age 7-18 to come and go on their own. The kitchen opens to a very pleasant living space with a large table that seats at least 8. Sleeps lots of people so it handled our large group.

Great Place, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This property is great for a large family, plenty of seating for 12-15, its clean, well equip for cooking and eating in, there is a BBQ, plenty of space for your beach toys and bikes. We had 13 over the weekend with my sister and her family of 4. This was a nice location, 2 blocks from the beach and a bike ride from Newport Pier, where there are restaurants and ice cream. There is a 7-11 with the basics about 4 blocks away and a grocery store about a mile away. Parking is difficult, once you get one, stay!

Owner's Response: I do agree that the upstairs unit has enough room for 2 large families, it sleeps 14. We are only 6 houses from the beach, i consider this steps to the sand, and we do have garage parking if the street is unavailable. We hope to see you next summer. thanks john

Great Family Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first blended family vacation. We were pleasantly surprised with how easy the whole process was. The check in check out process was seamless. Owner was very responsive to any questions. We couldn't believe how close to the beach and other amenities we were. Can't wait to come back!!

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This property was located in a very good location. Once we got everyone a parking space on the street. We only had to move the cars once on street sweeping days. We did 1 big shopping trip for food and the house is a short walk to a local convenience store and a few restaurants. We were about a mile to the pier so we walked a few times to enjoy the restaurants by the pier. Plenty of room for everyone in the house. The only drawback was the limited pots and pans for cooking for a big crowd, but we made it work! I truly appreciated the owners friendly attitude. We were so happy with the rental that we have booked both upstairs and downstairs for 2015!

Owner's Response: Thank-you for staying with us. The upstairs unit is large, but renting top and bottom unit is ideal. You will have the great patio and the upstairs unit sleeps 14--lots of room to spread out. We will make sure the kitchen has a new set of pots and pans next summer. thanks John
