About the property

Charming 3 bedroom, 2 bath a block from the South bayfront with large patio

Circa 1930’s beach cottage on Balboa Island in Newport Beach is located a block from the South bay front, in the heart of Balboa Island, walking distance to shops and restaurants along Marine Blvd. and to the Balboa Island Ferry. The house is perfect for a family of four to six, with one Queen, one Double, two Single beds, and Queen sleep sofa. The house has a large patio (rare on the island), full kitchen, washer & dryer, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Original wood beamed ceilings and large brick fireplace with gas logs give it a rustic feeling.

Many bike and boat rentals are available in the area; close to Disneyland, Laguna galleries and museums, ocean access all nearby. The sunset on the Newport Pier is the best – hey kids, bring your scooters, bikes and sand toys!

Great two week vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks in this 1936 beach cottage. The location is great and we spent a lot of time relaxing on the large front porch. Kitchen and bathroom facilities were up-to- date. All in all, this is a great spot at a reasonable rate. We would definitely rent this place again.

A Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at this cute cottage with my nephew to enjoy a break at the end of the school year. We had never been to Balboa Island before even though it is only an hour drive from LA. What a great get away! The house is an original beach cottage and the décor is simple, clean and cute with everything we needed. We loved the large patio (turns out many houses on the island don’t have one) and the big fireplace. It was only a block from the bay and a short walk to the Balboa Peninsula car ferry to get the ocean.

The shops and restaurants on Marine Ave. were within an easy walking distance, too. Loved ditching the car for most excursions. But it was also a perfect location to get to Legoland or Disneyland.
