Balboa Peninsula Condo Rental Photos and Description

Properties owned by Crashing Waves Cabana Inc are extremely popular and are typically booked 95% of the year. Generally speaking vacation rentals with high occupancy rates tend to be the most well priced with the closest proximity to the beach and to downtown.

Crashing Waves Cabana LLC, welcomes you to Newport Beach, the most beautiful beach in California. Two houses from the sand and two house from the bay, this newly remodeled, 1000 square foot two bedroom, one bathroom luxury condominium is ideally located west of Pacific Coast Highway and is a 15 second walk to one of the top rated beaches in the United States, according to the Men's Journal Magazine. Many celebrities have beach homes in the area, used to get away from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood.

Some of the most exclusive hotels in the world have developed world class five-star resorts in our community to take advantage of this beautiful beach paradise. Having traveled extensively around the world, we worked diligently to think of everything you will need to have the best vacation ever, in a cost effective manner. We designed our home to be peaceful, romantic and yet cozy. The main living space offers beautiful Italian tile, a gourmet kitchen, artwork by local artists, a 50 inch plasma screen TV and a very comfortable couch that turns into a bed.

The kitchen has all of the utensils and appliances you will need to cook wonderful meals, and the dining area seats four.

The master bedroom offers gorgeous carpets, a king-sized bed with finely appointed 500 thread count linens and a 42 inch big screen TV.

Our second bedroom also offers beautiful tile floors and a 42 inch flat screen TV/DVD. The bedroom has two twin beds that can be combined to form a King bed.

Our location is ideal, with everything you need close by. There are over 40 casual to upscale restaurants, boutiques and art galleries within a five minute stroll.

The world famous art colony, Laguna Beach, is a few miles to the South. The surfing capital of the US, Huntington Beach is a few miles to the north. Catalina Island is a 1-hour ferry .ride from our harbor. Compare our beautiful decor and family-friendly condo to any local hotel or vacation rental and we are confident you will want to stay with us.

Newport Beach is a dream location, and I have dreamed of buying here for almost 15 years. We were finally in a position to do it, and jumped at the opportunity to buy this home. Its so close to the beach and bay, a short walk to great restaurants and shops. You really never have to get in a car once you arrive.

Perfect home a family with kids!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for my kids and I. Convenient location to beach, bay and the Newport Pier area was an easy walk! As a single mom of three young kids, this home was perfect for us! The house was very clean and had bath and beach towels! The washer and dryer, air conditioning and patio were excellent perks...which made our week even more enjoyable! I'd recommend this property to anyone!

Good location.

  • 2 of 5

Wifi never worked the entire time, therefore we couldn't work. The Queen mattress is in desperate need to be replaced. We didn't sleep all week. Very sloped and very uncomfortable. The refrigerator doesn't keep things cold.

Great little Newport house

  • 5 of 5

Great central little house on the Balboa peninsula in Newport beach. Owner has done lots of upgrades to the house and was easy to work with. Our family of six stayed there and while it was a bit tight, we was certainly manageable. The house was clean and reasonably priced. The beach is literally 30 seconds away - across the street. I recommend renting bicycles and taking a day trip to Huntington Beach, it was lots of fun.

Small unit and close to the road

  • 3 of 5

The unit is very closed to the beach. That's what I like about this unit. The kitchen has been upgraded and very nice. It is small for 6 adults. One room does not have AC unit, just fan only. So it was hot in that room. We all didn't sleep well due to the noise (neighbors up to 2am talking) and the cars driving by. Since we have 6 adults, one person has to sleep on the air mattress. At first, it looks very nice and comfy. However, in the middle of the night, it deflated. We didn't have the extra blanket for the 6th person. We ended up using the sheet but it was cold in the middle of the night.

Newport Beach

  • 4 of 5

This property was well located and easy to access and close to everything. The garage parking was appreciated as parking in the area is very difficult. We found it much easier to leave the car in the garage and call an Uber car for local transportation. We were disappointed in the sleeping accommodations. The second bedroom was to have a queen sized bed, but we found 2 twin beds when we arrived. All in all, it was satisfactory.

As with most condo's at the beach in Southern California, this property does not have central air conditioning. Because day time temperatures are normally in the low 70s and night time temperatures in the high 50s in normally unnecessary. The sea breeze also tends to act as a natural coolant.
