MODERN & LUXURIOUS BALBOA GEM !! CLASSY BEACH VILLA!! 8 HOUSES FROM SAND!

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Balboa Peninsula - Modern Luxurious Balboa Gem!!

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Balboa Gem presents a beautiful and completely updated modern looking turnkey property located within the first block of Newport Beach. Prepare to be charmed and impressed upon reaching the top of the stairs that lead to 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.

Bedrooms & Bath:

This upper-floor unit is a quiet 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, easily accommodating up to 6 guests. Both bedrooms feature a queen-sized bed with 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 counter tops, plenty of cabinet space and fluffy towels for a spa-like experience.

Kitchen & Dining:

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 counter tops, 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.

Other Details:

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. 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.

39th Street provides a very convenient beach location. Balboa Gem is just 8 houses from the sand, so it's an easy walk to the beach. The Newport Beach boardwalk is only a few streets away, as is the Newport Pier and 38th Street Park. The home is located at the base of the Balboa Peninsula, not too far from PCH, so it's easy to get to the home, even in the height of summer. Further up the tip of the peninsula it gets very congested with traffic during the summer months and requires a longer commute in.

VANGLOVER

The pictures do not do this house justice. The name is very appropriate. It is truly a gem. We stayed with 2 teenagers and 2 tweens. We all had plenty of room and had a great time. The house was very clean. Very well stocked and it was definitely better than staying in a hotel. Denise was very nice and professional. She checked in to make sure everything was perfect. Thank you!!! Can't wait to go back.

FUN WITH FRIENDS

  • 5 out of 5
I had some friends in town for the weekend and we decided to get a beach house to enjoy southern California better. We are very glad that we were able to rent the Balboa Gem. It was very clean and had upgraded everything. We would definitely stay there again.

AS ADVERTISED!

  • 5 out of 5
My family moved from California 4 years ago, and when we visit we like to stay near the beach. Over the last 4 years, we have rented many homes. We have learned to arrive cautiously. The Balboa Gem was indeed a "Gem". The booking was quick and painless. Response from management efficient and helpful. Upon arrival, everything was as advertised. It was clean, appointed (with linens, towels and chairs, etc. that were not old, or rusty, or unusable) and most importantly, just a few houses from the beach! It was not huge on space, but the space was lovely and it was a perfect home base for our family of 4 (two teenage boys). Less than a mile from the Newport Pier, about 8 houses from the sand, a short ride to Balboa, easy access to food and activity...just perfect. We will definitely seek out the "Gem" on our return. Thank you for a lovely and truthful representation of the property, and for your hospitality during our week in California!
