Why Pam Muth chose Balboa Peninsula
In 2000, we had rented a place for a year on 34th Street while our home was being built in North Tustin. My husband, who always loved the beach, fell further in love with this area and the idea of someday owning a vacation home on the peninsula. We thought it would be amazing to be able to stay down here on weekends and offer a great vacation spot to our friends and family. We finally had the opportunity to purchase something in Newport Beach at the end of 2011 and were excited when this property came on the market. There were two units on the property at that time, both of them very "shack-like" and the back shack was by far the grungiest. But we had a vision for what could be done with the place! We kept everything as it was for a few years and then did a humongous remodel in 2016 which included knocking down the back shack completely and building a completely new, from the ground up, home. We also stripped the front shack down to the studs and built that from scratch with all new electrical, plumbing, insulation, windows, flooring, appliances……the works!! We and our friends and family continue to fondly refer to our place as "The Shack" and "The Back Shack". They are two of the most gorgeous "shacks" you will ever see! Until now, we've used the property solely as a weekend place for ourselves and friends and family. We still plan to stay as often as possible in either shack when they are available. We hope you enjoy staying in our home as much as we do!!!

Best place to stay for a family vacation
This was our first time using VRBO and we were not disappointed. After staying at "The Shack" I don't think I could go back to staying in a hotel when we visit Newport Beach. Pam and Jimmy provide you with every amenity you need to make for a great beach trip. The house is beautifully decorated and so comfortable. We loved using the bikes, boogie boards and the rooftop patio. We will definitely return next year. Thank you for being such good hosts to us! I can honestly say this was one of the best vacations we've been on.
Our family of 4 had a great holiday and ‘The Shack’ was a fabulous place to stay. The house is immaculate and has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Little details left by the owner make it feel like home! The area is lovely with the beach a couple of minutes walk and restaurants and shops all within walking distance. We LOVED the roof terrace and watching the sun set with the fire pit going was the perfect end to our days! We hope to be back again.
Another Fantastic Stay!
When thinking of where to spend some time off this summer, it was an easy and unanimous decision: THE SHACK! We absolutely love this property! This past week was our second time staying there and it was just a great as we remembered it. You simply cannot beat the location, the amenities, the style, or the service! I'm sure we will find ourselves at 'The Shack' soon enough!
The Shack is setting for perfect vacation
The home is beautiful and equipped with every amenity. This was our second time staying there and once again it was perfect.
Thanks, Michele! I hope we can make this an annual event for your family! Enjoy the rest of your summer!
