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!!!

Home Away From Home
Thoroughly enjoyed our vacation staying at "The Shack". Pam met us upon our arrival and gave us a tour, answered any questions and even included chocolate chip cookies! The home is beautifully decorated and the proximity to the beach, restaurants, shopping is fabulous. 10/10!
Thanks Pam for allowing us to stay. The Shack definitely contributed to our having a wonderful vacation.
Totally relaxing and as advertised
Great property. All the comforts of home. Having parking is huge. Easy walk to beach. Nice neighborhood. Walkable dining, and shopping choices.
Perfect home away from home!
My daughter and I stayed at the Shack April 16-20. - it was absolutely amazing! Pam (the owner) thought of everything! It was comfortable and the large private patio is perfect. The kitchen is well stocked and there were plenty of towels and linens for all of our nights. The bed, couch and recliner are all super comfortable. Having a garage to park our car in was a huge plus as parking so close to the beach is hard to find in the evening. All of the extras provided came in handy too! We used the bikes for rides down the boardwalk to the shopping areas and the pier. Pam was quick to answer any questions we had both before and during the trip. Would HIGHLY recommend staying here. We hope to come back next year :)
Great accommodations and perfect location. Close to the beach, all amenities necessary to enjoy your stay. Cookies and fresh oranges were awesome!!
Clean, relaxing and close to the beach
Perfect for a long weekend with our daughter. The air mattress was great for her. We used the kitchen, grill and firepit, all worked great. It was less than 5 minutes to walk to the beach and close to other areas and things to do. Having the washer and dryer and garage space was a plus.
Amazing vacation, A+++
Thank you Pam for a very good vacation at your beautiful place. The property is very good, clean and looks like model house. Very close to the beach and everything. Will stay again for sure. A+++
Thanks for the nice review, Sergey. I'm glad you and your family had a great time. I'd love to host you again any time.
Disneyland and California Adventure are about 20 minutes away.
