This snowbird-friendly, three-story beach house in Newport Beach is the perfect family vacation home and features an ocean view! Revel in quality time together, as well as a full kitchen, a furnished deck, and easy beach and bike trail access at the end of the street. And with only two houses between you and the sand and famous Newport Beach three-mile boardwalk, life doesn’t get much better than this!
This ideal location, which some consider to be the best spot after Peninsula Point, is nestled between two piers on a beach that's frequently low on crowds. A playground on the sand is a mere two blocks away, and with beach and bay access so near, outdoor activities abound. Do some canoeing, kayaking, paddleboarding, jet skiing, bike riding (either cruiser, tandem or four-seater paddle surrey), skateboarding, surfing, fishing off both piers, or learn to sail. Bring your own equipment or rent from multiple locations on the peninsula or Balboa Fun Zone, which boasts a Ferris wheel, game arcade, restaurants, and jet skiing. Or captain your own electric boat and cruise the bay by renting from Duffy Boats, just a five-minute drive across the bay.
Walk to either pier to explore restaurants and shops and treat yourself to a breakfast or ice cream at the end of the Balboa Pier at Ruby’s Diner. Book a tour of the bay and go whale watching or take dinner cruises. Take the ferry to Balboa Island and explore Marine Avenue with their delightful restaurants and unique shops. During the summer months, if you do not wish to walk along the boardwalk, please take the Balboa Trolley, which cruises from Hoag Hospital to the Balboa Village. Your stop will be directly in front of your vacation home. Couldn’t be more convenient! Also, remember that Disneyland, California Adventure, Angel Stadium, Honda Civic Center are all a short 20-minute drive away.
