vacation rental description

The Balboa Gem presents a beautiful turnkey property located within the first block of Newport Beach - just 8 houses from the sand.  Prepare to be charmed and impressed upon reaching the top of the stairs that lead o this finely-appointed upper unit.  A December 2011 remodel has created a cozy and upscale beach villa where guests can relax and escape the pressures of the day-to-day world.   Balboa Gem is ideally located on the Balboa Peninsula less than a block from the sands of Newport Beach.  This upper-floor unit is a quiet haven boasting 2 large bedrooms and 1 bath, easily accommodating up to 6 guests.  Both bedrooms feature a brand new queen-sized bed with luxury linens, while a leather sofa sleeper is included in the living room.  Each bedroom has a flat screen TV, ample closet space, contemporary furniture, black-out shades and a ceiling fan. The luxurious bathroom has a large tub/shower combo, Black Galaxy granite countertops, plenty of cabinet space and fluffy towels for a spa-like experience.  A gourmet chef’s kitchen includes every amenity necessary to create special meals - or a quick breakfast or sandwich.  Brand new high-end stainless steel appliances compliment Italian granite countertops, while finely-detailed cabinetry and a Kholer sink/faucet complete the upscale look.  A four-seat dining table is situated in the dining area and provides a lovely spot for relaxing. Special touches abound in the details, such as leaded glass accents in the front door, modern light fixtures, crown mouldings, sleek window coverings and contemporary artwork & decor.  The Balboa Gem features beautiful stone flooring throughout and custom stone baseboard treatments.  Accent rugs add warmth to each room and help anchor the comfortable living space where a flat screen TV/DVD is provided, as well as a ceiling fan to circulate fresh ocean breezes.  A spacious rooftop deck provides an additional dining and relaxing area with a 4-seat patio set, gas barbeque and potted plants.   A shared laundry area with full-size washer and dryer is included, as well as parking for one car in the garage below.  Storage space is available in the garage as well as use of the provided beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels.  Short-term parking for a second car is available directly in front of the house and is a terrific asset in a busy beach community like Balboa.   An outdoor hot and cold shower is located on the east side of the property for post-beach rinse offs.   When it comes to a relaxing beach vacation, the Balboa Beach Gem has it all – unbeatable value, stylish 4-star accommodations, budget-friendly rates, and a fantastic location.  Guests will feel right at home in this cozy beach villa and will want to return year after year to enjoy the charms and fun of Newport Beach.

Fun in the Sun

Review submitted: April 11, 2014   Date of arrival: April 4, 2014

Me and my family had a Fabulous Vacation Simi and Denise are great very very kind and professional. This place is very nice & great location. The only negative is that the couch bed is very uncomfortable u can feel all the metal and springs it just needs a thicker matress... But besides that everything else was wonderful and they have some really nice properties very well taken care of:)

Amazing quality and affordable vacation by the Beach

Review submitted: March 5, 2014   Date of arrival: February 25, 2014

We rented this condo for 4 days at the last minute. It's hard to find a place like this in the Peninsula, since most of them are run down and old.
Was surprised to see the quality of the rental for such an affordable rent. Everything was top of the line, new, 3 Plasma screen TV's in the rental topped it all, the place was very clean and walk right along the side walk to the beach, customer service was excellent.
We were able to walk to the restaurants, stores and there is quiet a few restaurants on the board walk that we were able to walk to. We walked to Newport Pier every day. We are coming back again

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, sight seeing

Owners response: Thank you for sharing your thoughts about your stay. Happy to hear you guys enjoyed your stay, we will be happy to have you guys again.

Nice place, neighbors a wild card

Review submitted: February 21, 2014   Date of arrival: February 15, 2014

The condo is nice, clean and as pictured. It is a close walk to the beach which is nice and good walking distance to Newport Pier and other areas with lots of restaurant choices. The beach is very nice and never was crowded during our stay.

There was really one major issue and that was that you are on top of another rental home which would normally be fine but during our stay there were at least 25 kids in their early 20's partying downstairs. I don't know if it's managed by the same rental company but usually the minimum requirement for renters is 25 and these kids were no more than 21 at best. I am pregnant and we had our 3 year-old there and it was awkward trying to be out on our deck or walking down to the beach when there were a bunch of wasted, cussing, half-naked kids running around. I guess it's the risk you take when renting this sort of a place but based on our experience I would recommend this condo for people looking to party but not necessarily families.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, girls getaway, tourists without a car

Owners response: Balboa Peninsula does get a lot of younger crowds during holidays, with that the neighbors next door had guests that were visiting and that was not our vacation rental home. Unfortunately, it was a long weekend for President's Day & Washington's Birthday.
