Ideal Location, Super Clean 1 BDR/1BTH - 1 Block from beach!
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!!!

What a find!
Couldn't of asked for a better trip! The Shack had everything we could of asked for from beach towels to toys and everything in between. We had an unreal time. Beautiful place, beautiful beach, everything was perfect, not sure there's anything else we could ask for!
Relaxing at the Beach
My stay at this property was a delight. Pam, the host, was terrific...she has thought of everything to make the unit very homey. Everything was very clean and organized. Lots of beach stuff (chairs, umbrella, towels) available and bikes for riding on boardwalk. Very close to beach as well as shopping. I felt very comfortable and safe here. Am looking forward to returning soon 😎
Thank you for that nice review, Marrae. I would love to have you stay again. Take a look at the email I sent with the special offer in Dec and Jan and let me know if that is still of interest. Take care!!
Great location, great place to stay!
Loved every minute of our week stay at "The Shack". Everything was ship shape and very nice. Loved being a block or so from the beach and a couple of blocks from restaurants and groceries. We hope to return soon.
You were perfect guests! I'd love to host you again any time. If you haven't been to Newport in the "off-season", I'd suggest you give it go sometime. It's pretty spectacular Oct-May too. :-)
We spent an extended weekend down at the Shack. It was exactly what we needed. Just steps away from the beach, it provided a perfect place for our little family to relax and enjoy. Pam was wonderful and provided a blow-up mattress for our 3 year old and a pack n play for our 1 year old. We loved every moment and hope to come back.
I'm glad you enjoyed your time at The Shack! I'd be delighted to host your family again any time.
Amazing Newport Beach Location
We positively loved our stay at The Shack! The location on the peninsula was perfect as it was an easy walk to the beach, stores and restaurants. It had all the beach necessities such as chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and bikes! We will definitely come back to stay here. Pam and Jimmy were fantastic hosts :)
All the right things
This Property was perfect for me and my wife and 2 little boys. Pam was very thoughtful and provided us a play pen for our youngest one which meant one less thing to pack. The place was super clean and new and Quiet, and to have a garage parking in this area was a huge bonus. The garage is stocked with beach chairs, umbrellas, 5 bikes, 4 or 5 boogie boards,volleyballs ,a surfboard and even sand toys for the kids. An easy to ride or walk to Pavillions grocery store a block away and fill a backpack and never even use the car. The location is perfect nearby freeway access or balboa peninsula. Pam was very accommodating too I wanted to watch the Paquiao boxing match and she went out of her way and made it happen. Nothing but good things to say about this place and the owner. I used to live/work in the area and knew what was important to look for and Pam has it all right here ! Kudos
Disneyland and California Adventure are about 20 minutes away.
