About the Owner

My name is Susan and I started my family in this home! When it became a little to tight for all of us, we moved to another part of Newport Beach. I grew up at the beach and have lived near the beach all of my life. I'm super happy to share this rare gem of a location with you!

The Yellow House

  • 4 of 5
This house was just what the doctor ordered. Great location two parking spaces. Would have liked to have a list of "what to do", trash is Monday and Saturday, etc. Our family was very comfortable here. The upper patio is amazing.

While staying at the Balboa Court House, you will run out of time far before you run out of things to do. This is the epicenter of Orange County's most pristine beaches. The house is nestled on the Balboa Peninsula, with a gorgeous soft sand beach less that 50 steps from the front porch. Exit the house and turn to your right, and less than 50 steps away is the Newport Beach Pier & Pavilion. This bustling hot spot is home to several amazing restaurants and bars, including the world famous Crab Cooker. Stroll the local shops and pick up souvenirs, or wake up early and be the first in line at the Dory Fish Market at the foot of the pier. Afterwards grab fresh donuts with the locals at the Seaside Bakery or an amazing chili cheese omelet at Charlie's Chili Diner.

If you love the outdoors, there are several reserves and beautiful places to explore within a few miles, including the Newport Back Bay, Crystal Cove Park, and the Bolsa Chica Reserve (where the bird watching is unmatched). Rent a bike at the shop next door and ride farther down the peninsula on the bike path. It will lead you to the Balboa Fun Zone where you can take a short boat ride in the Marina, ride the Ferris Wheel, or ferry over to Balboa Island for even more shopping, dining and sight-seeing.

Just a few miles north by bike or car is Surf City USA, Huntington Beach. Grab a Corn Dog at Ruby's on the pier and watch world class surfers practice their craft or shop all the hip surf shops lining Main Street.

If you are ready to shop at two of the most high end Orange County Shopping destinations, South Coast Plaza and Newport Beach's Fashion Island are less that a 15 minute drive away. Shop until you drop and then pick up some wood on the way home and visit one of the local beaches with fire pits...there is nothing like S'mores on the beach next to a crackling fire with waves crashing on the beach behind you. The perfect ending to a perfect day!

If you are coming to enjoy the many local theme parks, Disneyland& Knott's Berry Farm are less than 45 minutes away. 90 minutes South you will find Sea World, Lego Land, The San Diego Zoo, & Wild Animal Park.

The Nearby Marina's offer all sorts of ocean side activities. You can catch a boat for a day trip to Catalina Island, go whale watching, paddle boating, sailing, or rent a Duffy and cruise around the bay sipping wine and sampling local cheeses. The possibilities are endless!
