Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Sleeps 11

Welcome to the largest and best family property on Balboa Island available for weekly and nightly rentals. Built in 1920 and belonging to the same family for almost 100 years, this newly renovated and decorated, spectacular 5 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom, South Bayfront home sits on the widest point of Newport Harbor with stunning harbor channel views down to Corona Del Mar and the Balboa Pavilion. When you walk into the first level of the home you are welcomed by the newly remodeled kitchen with fresh white cabinets, stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. There is an island with four bar stools perfect for a small lunch gathering in the kitchen or a larger dining table area next to the living room. The downstairs living room and dining area are a single space that is surrounded by windows that reach from the floor to the ceiling, taking in every view that Newport Harbor has to offer. Then walk out onto the large patio and enjoy the good life!

A set of the living room windows are sliding glass doors that open up to the front patio. This stunning front patio is fully equipped with comfortable lounging furniture and a stainless steel gas BBQ grill. It is the perfect spot to grill up some burgers and drink a cocktail while enjoying the sight of the boats cruising by.

The first bedroom is located downstairs with a queen sized bed and close access to a full bathroom with a walk in shower. There is also another half bathroom on the first level.

On the second level of the home there are two bedrooms that could both be considered master bedrooms with king sized beds and master bathrooms inside of them. There are two other bedrooms perfect for another couple with a queen sized bed and another great for children or additional guests containing a bunk bed with a twin sized mattress on top and full on the bottom.These two bedrooms share access to another bathroom.

Towards the bayfront you will find the second living room which is perfectly set for hanging out with the wet bar, comfortable couches, cozy chairs and game table area. This living room is also surrounded by windows that reach from the floor to the ceiling giving you that stunning view of the harbor from all levels of the home!! No other property on the Balboa Island bayfront gets you this close to the water!

Located at the end of Marine Avenue, you are truly steps away from all of the best shops and restaurants that Balboa Island provides. You can enjoy a delicious and hearty breakfast at Wilma’s Patio or if you just want a quick snack you can stop by the famous Dad’s Donut Shop and Bakery and enjoy and chocolate covered banana! Once you are stuffed, rent some bikes and take a cruise around the island. The views of the water, homes and boats are unbeatable.

Not only does Balboa Island sell itself with its exquisite and classic charm, but this home will be the cherry on top of the most delicious vacation you will ever have! Come and enjoy all Balboa Island has to offer in this stunning home which also includes use of a large dock with an end tie on one side and direct access to the Island Boardwalk for people watching or to launch the kayak and 2 stand up paddle boards included with this bayfront beauty.

What an amazing home! We had the best time. The layout of the house is perfect for a group of friends or a family. You are right on the water with a fun little beach, a dock and it's right on a gorgeous walking path. The amenities were perfect. We will definitely be coming back here soon! I highly recommend this house for your next vacation!

Reviewer Comments:

We were so thankful to find Newport Beach Vacation Properties! Booking a vacation rental is not easy. There are a lot of options and there are a lot not so good homes or people who are not great with communication. NBVP was so delightful!! They took the stress off the the process and made everything so clear. They even have a phone app that has every detail needed for check in. We will always book with NBVP!! Thank you sooo much!!! The house is beautiful and so big!! The kids loved playing on the bay. We even got to use the kayaks and stand up paddle boards. We will try to come back every year.

Our family had a great time at this house. There was so much space inside, a great location and incomparable views. Our friends and family visited during the week and had a wonderful time as well. We look forward to renting the home again.

Reviewer Comments:

Location: Excellent. House: Large enough. Three of us were bit during the night....don't know by what, maybe spider bites. On Friday nite before we left a cockroach sped across the floor in the bedroom I slept in (with the TV) and we packed up at 10pm and left. Once again, (for the second year in a row) the cleaning crew showed up at 4pm and we didn't get in till just before 6. You shouldn't put 4pm as a check in time. Please See the shower mat in the shower in the bathroom adjoining the bedroom with the TV and toss it. It was disgusting. I suggest you have the house tented in the off season for pests. I wanted it to be perfect for the price we paid.......

Reviewer Comments:

We have rented houses on Balboa Island for 38 years. This is by far the the best maintained, has a killer view, lovely decor, and very clean. We only had one issue. Previous renters filled the garbage cans, and they weren't emptied for 5 days. We called the property management company, and they weren't helpful. Told us to store in garage. Not fun with diapers!
