Come enjoy our cottage by the sea! This darling home has been
completely renovated back to its charming 1920's roots, but updated
to include all modern conveniences. From the newly installed
hardwood floors, to the black and white checked tile baths, you will
feel like you are stepping back in time while still enjoying a
clean, newly furnished, charming Cape Cod/ Nantucket style retreat.
This is a wonderful place to entertain family and friends, enjoy
downtime while away on business, or to curl up with a book in one of
the many nooks and take advantage of some private time. We have
three bedrooms (two rooms with a queen bed each, one room with both
a full and a twin), three bathrooms and all of the bedrooms have a
private shower (one with small bathtub). With plenty of places to
spread out (bedrooms, living room, dining room, breakfast room,
television room, patio), you can gather or relax as you wish. The
patio area is spacious, sunny, inviting and private.
Our private, sunny, spacious patio has two lounge chairs, a table
and four chairs under a fresh market umbrella, and a propane grill.
The private driveway provides up to three parking spots so you'll
never have to worry about finding street parking.
We are located two doors down from the beachfront and just three
short blocks from the main street, Marine Avenue, where you will
find restaurants, coffee and pastry stores, shopping boutiques and
groceries. A short walk to the other side of the island puts you on
the historic ferry running over to the Balboa Peninsula, where you
will find more restaurants, the "Fun Zone" of arcades and rides, the
oceanfront and piers.
Balboa Island is an ideal location for vacationing or staying while
on business. It is both conveniently located to the surrounding area
and a world away from the ordinary. Once over the short bridge, you
need never get in the car again. Restaurants and groceries are steps
away and much of the charm comes from strolling along the bay front
sidewalk that runs along Balboa Island's perimeter, which is also
ideally suited for those who like a more vigorous walk or jog.
Southern California offers many different activities and all are
within a day-trip's visit. Theme parks are plentiful (Disneyland,
Universal Studios, Knott’s Berry Farm, Six Flags Magic Mountain,
Lego Land and several water parks) as are many other wonderful
activities, including some of the best golf courses in Southern
California located only a short drive away. If you have exhausted
the many boutiques on Balboa Island, then Newport Center/Fashion
Island is a five minutes drive (stores, restaurants, movie theaters)
and South Coast Plaza just 15 minutes drive.
It is only 20 minutes to Disneyland, 45 minutes to Los Angeles, one
hour to San Diego and all of its attractions, including the zoo and
wild animal park, Sea World and access to Tijuana. Within walking
distance you can rent a boat, take a harbor tour, walk along the
surf, take the boat/flyer to Catalina Island for the day, scuba
dive, deep sea fish, surf, wind surf, bike along paths, grocery
shop, swim, kayak, pier fish, choose from a variety of restaurants,
snorkel, sail, Jet Ski, body surf and more.
