Overview

Balboa Peninsula Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

2Bdrm/1Bath Located on 29th Street - Easy Walking to Restaurants and Shops

40 Steps to the sand. Perfect location close enough to the beach to hear the waves and far enough from Balboa Blvd to not hear traffic noise. Separate house over the garage, no neighbors above or below you, separated from the front unit by privacy fencing. Newly renovated 2 bdrm/1 bath (back) beach cottage decorated very beachy and fun. Wonderfully central location a just short walk to the Newport Pier, McFadden Square and the Historic Lido Movie Theater. Just 2 blks to a shopping center with grocery, restaurants, fast food and gelato. So many places within walking distance you may never use your car.

Because there is no outdoor space and the house is very small, this is not a 'party' house.

Bedroom #1 - One King bed

Bedroom #2 - Two Twin XL beds

Also available - Baby crib

Best use for two couples or two adults plus 1-3 kids.

Light and bright living room with comfortable seating, a 55' flat screen TV, Cable TV and DVD player. Board games, playing cards and kids toys are located in the TV console.

Open concept full kitchen is completely outfit with all the essential cooking needs. Stainless steel appliances, full range, microwave, french door refrigerator and dishwasher.

Two equal sized bedrooms, each with a spacious closet. Bedroom #1 has a King bed with memory foam mattress and high quality linens. Small window A/C.

Bedroom #2 has a two Twin XL beds with memory foam mattresses and high quality linens. Small window A/C in each bedroom keeps the temps cool and offers some white noise for peaceful rest.

Bathroom has a very large shower with adjustable height shower head and removable hand held sprayer. Children's tub included by request. Sink and separate vanity area comfortably accommodates two persons. Bath linens provided.

Small Desk in the hallway with laptop area and cell phone charging station. Magazines, local dining menus and writing supplies are located here.

DVD library with over 80 titles to choose from. Also there are paperback books for swap, (take one-leave one.)

Small patio area at the bottom of the stairs with BBQ and beach storage. No outdoor seating area.

Also included: WiFi, beach towels, shared washer/dryer, two beach cruisers, boogie boards, beach chairs, sand toys, and more.

Good to Know- This property is a 2nd story back house, (13 steps). Very small patio with BBQ but no outdoor sitting area. Entry is through the patio gate on the alley. Very private. Great neighbors on either side are very quiet. Owners live adjacent so property is very clean and well maintained. No parties please.

Why Pam Edson chose Newport Beach and Balboa Island Area

We love the location of this house with the beautiful clean white sand beaches just a few houses down. 29th Street is home to a wonderful group of neighbors and is very quiet. It is also one of only four double wide streets which spaces the homes nicely.

Very pleased with everything about our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the great location and easy and quick access to beach. Pam made the reservation process very seamless and also promptly returned our damage deposit within a week after our stay. Cottage was very quaint with all the living amenities - loved having a washer/dryer - and beach stuff to use (chairs, umbrellas, boogie and surf boards, outdoor shower, etc.). My kids, 17 and 12, were never bored and said the place, location, and neighborhood was "...very cool."

We also loved the close proximity to the grocery story and numerous restaurants within a 3-5 min walk. We cooked in a few times and also ate out a couple of times. Had a very relaxing stay and would definitely return again!

Great small place by the beach

  • 4 of 5

Easy access to the beach. Literally about 30 seconds to walk there. Recommend not renting a car. Traffic seemed terrible anyway. Easy walk to everything nearby. Place is small but very comfortable. Was able to take the pack and play for our son to the beach to keep him a little contained. Was also able to use surfboard in garage. Only complaint is our son got some sort of mystery rash after sitting in high chair. Not even sure it was that but it seemed the likely cause. It cleared up within 2 days though so nothing major. Overall great stay and great area

It was great

  • 5 of 5

We were really happy! The place was awesome. The parking was almost impossibly tight, but that is not the owners fault. Just be prepared for it to be close to impossible to get an suv into the garage! It took rocking back and forth about 10 times, because there was a car in the drive immediately in front of ours the entire weekend. But otherwise the property was great! We would return.

Fantastic affordable vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home! Very well maintained and comfortable! They really thought of a lot of details and went the extra mile... no need to pack towels or rent chairs for the beach or boogie boards or sand toys! We did rent bikes (we never saw the cruisers that were supposedly there), and storing them is a little tricky, but overall, it is a fantastic place, great location, great rental! Thank you!!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a perfect location near the pier, shops, and restaurants, and just steps from the beach. It was clean, beautifully decorated, and comfortable. Pam and Jeff were so nice and we would definitely come back again.

Best spot by Beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved this charming place! Location was the best for us to just walk seconds to the beach and the great food places and grocery store just minutes away. The place was VERY clean and lovely. The bed's very comfortable and lots of closet pace. Loved having bogie boards, chairs, towel for beach. Only had to rent 2 bikes since the other 2 at place were perfect for us adults. The kitchen was wonderful for making breakfast and lunch, has everything! We also had plenty of room at night to sit and watch movies; selection provided was great for the entire family. The only problem we had was getting the rented Mustang in the garage, at times we had to ask the person behind the garage to pull out to be able to pull in. Pam was wonderful with any questions and was quick to answer.

What a great place to stay at for our first family trip to Newport Beach and hope to be back!
