Balboa Peninsula has been a famous vacation destination for over 100 years. Our place is just three blocks from the Fun Zone, Balboa Pier, the Ferries to Balboa Island and Catalina and an easy walk to cafes, shops and of course, the beach. We are one house from the sand, with peekaboo views from the deck and an easy walk to the famed fire rings. You will never want to leave!
This is a sunny, three story building built in 1958 and it's been completely restored and custom decorated by West Elm. You hear the waves crash all night long!
Ideal for beach days with hardwood floors, a huge patio, gas BBQ and a separate, private shower room on the ground floor (full bathroom upstairs, shower room downstairs). Panoramic windows fill the front room with light and views of Balboa Blvd and the Great Heron colony nesting across the road. The spacious main bedroom leads to an attached, enclosed glass sunroom with a reading nook and washer dryer area, then onto the large deck with loungers, sofa, chairs, heaters and peekaboo views of the beach and boardwalk.
Update: As of January 2017, we are 100% on solar power!
This is a NO SMOKING building, including the patio. Vaping is allowed outside, however, but not inside. If you choose to smoke, please enjoy the short walk to beach and go for it.
Accès des voyageurs
You'll have access to the entire place. Includes use of two surfboards, several wetsuits of various sizes, boogie boards, 4 beach chairs and an umbrella, along with many children's beach toys and games. Lombardy's Market and Deli are right across the street, along with My Galley which serves delicious smoothies, coffees, breakfast and lunch. Paddleboards are available for rent across the street next to the deli, and they'll transport them to the bay for you. Easy!

I will be here to help as needed; we live upstairs. It is a separate unit and you'll have your own entry and keys. We can visit my many local friends / bar owners/ awesome surfers or I can throw you the keys and bail.
I absolutely love Newport Beach and think it's one of the best places in the world in which to live.
There are three, nearly identical 1,100 sf units here. Two are occupied year-round. Yours is the biggest of the three thanks to the giant sunroom and patio. We are on the beach side of the road, with the public beach 50 feet away and the calm water of the bay just across the street.
We are in a quiet, peaceful part of Balboa Peninsula, near Balboa Pier. It's much calmer here than up by Newport Pier, so this is a great place for kids that are okay with stairs. Although the listing states "no parties or events", a daytime birthday party or something like that is just fine. We do respect our neighbors and keep it down after 10pm.
Please plan a 11:00am check out time / 2:00pm check in. Daily maid service and pre-arrival grocery shopping available.
Mean stuff, but necessary:
8 guests is the maximum capacity of the unit, not a guideline. Airbnb does not back 3rd party bookings, and you will be asked for valid ID upon arrival. If the guest booked is NOT the one arriving (or part of the group booked) it will be grounds for cancellation without refund. Sorry, no smoking anywhere on the property. It's only steps to the beach and you're welcome to smoke there. **Absolutely no package deliveries or mail will be accepted. NO EXCEPTIONS.**
Si vous annulez jusqu'à 5 jours avant le voyage, vous recevez un remboursement intégral. En cas d'annulation au cours des 5 jours précédant le voyage, la première nuit est non remboursable, mais vous recevrez un remboursement à hauteur de 50 % du coût des nuits restantes.
I'm a Newport Beach native, born and raised. We own a traffic engineering firm and I am a 500-RYT yoga alliance certified yoga teacher. Our home is very casual and beach friendly... 50 steps to the sand!
