About the property

3 bedroom condo close on the Balboa Peninsula

Sitting on one of the most desirable corners of Newport, rests this peaceful 3 bedroom, 2 bath vacation condo. Boasting 1300 square feet, this condo has recently gone through a total renovation, including new furniture and appliances. A calm and modern atmosphere awaits you at this beach escape.

Fond memories will easily be made in this open living and dining room, whether you decide to play some of the provided games, watch a favorite movie, or reminisce about moments at the beach. Attached to the living area is a roomy, raised patio outfitted for sunbathing, entertaining and barbecuing. And you don’t have to be a seasoned chef to enjoy what our kitchen supplies; from cooking spices and storage containers to granite countertops and new appliances, the kitchen contains everything you need to make simple snacks for a day at the beach or a delicious dinner for the whole family. The master bedroom enjoys an ocean view from a comfortable queen bed, private bath, television and access to the patio. The second bedroom has a queen bed, television, and a view of the Historic Balboa Pier, while the last bedroom has a full and single bunk bed. All three televisions have access to DirecTV, so no one has to miss their favorite sitcom or drama while on vacation. There is also an in-unit washer and dryer and WiFi for your convenience.

The condo is located just steps away from many popular activities such as boating, paddle boarding, kayaking, and the famous Balboa Fun Zone and Ferris wheel. There are two bicycles available for picturesque rides on the boardwalk or a visit to the Newport Pier. If you want to venture off the boardwalk, you are only a short stroll to the Balboa Island Ferry, which will take you to Balboa Island for shopping and delightful food adventures. You are 30 minutes from Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm and upscale shopping at Fashion Island, and only 1½ hours to San Diego.

The complex features a private gated entry, elevator access, and a gated parking garage with two private parking spaces for vehicles ***with a maximum height of 6 feet.***

Why Jeff & Stephanie Mendenhall chose Newport Beach - Balboa Island area

We have many fond memories of going to the Fun Zone riding the Historic Ferris Wheel, fishing off the Balboa Pier, eating at Ruby''s and riding the Balboa Ferry. This location is within walking distance of all these activities and much more.

What makes this condo unique

The patio gives visitors a view of the beautiful Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island, and is located in a central location to all kinds of fun activities.

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

The condo worked perfectly for our family. There were 4 adults and two young grandsons. The condo is very clean and well equipped and we were very comfortable. The bunk beds were a big hit with the boys. The location is great and everything is in walking distance. Jeff and Stephanie were very quick to respond to any message. We hope to return for another weekend.

Great stay right at the pier

  • 5 of 5

The web site doesn't do this condo justice. Every part of the condo is upgraded and beautifully decorated. Huge patio that can accomodate 8 people easily with amazing views of the ocean, beach and sunsets. My husband and 2 teenagers loved the location, nearby activities and food places which were steps away from our doorstep. The owners are wonderful and available 24/7. I would recommend this to my friends, couples who may want to split the costs, and families. Really is a gem.

Wonderful for couples and families

  • 5 of 5

The web page does not do justice to this condo. Perfect location, beautifully decorated, great kitchen and beds were great to sleep in. Met the owners who walked us through the place and made us feel right at home. So much to do and everything you would want is a few steps away. Winter was the best, less crowds and noise, yet still beautiful days. I would recommend to couples sharing the costs, or families. This condo is truly a gem.

The Best!!

  • 5 of 5

Such a great condo, right on the beach, beautifully decorated, well stocked, cozy. Just all around great. I think Jeff and Stephanie sit right at their computer because any questions we had, their response was immediate. Most highly recommend this condo to any and all.

That being said, we were there on THE worst rainy weekend in many many years. Arrived on Friday in a driving rain, went up to Pavilions to get groceries, then never left the condo. Rained heavily on Friday, cleared up a bit on Saturday as we were preparing for family and friends to arrive to celebrate my daughter's 50th birthday. It was a lovely time and even took a picture of a special sunset. On Sunday, rain was back.... a HUGE downpour ALL DAY, so we lounged, and watched the Patriots and the Falcons win their games. Grandkids came over and we helped them stuff their little favor bags for their 7th birthday party coming up in 2 weeks (twins). For me, there's something safe and cozy about looking out from the condo to the wind and rain blowing the palm trees sideways, seeing NO ONE jogging, or riding bikes, watching the metal patio chairs bending and shaking with the wind.....couple of people braving the pier......probably no customers for Ruby's that day.... So no Ruby's for us today, or the Fun Zone or bike riding. But that's okay. I have access to Newport Beach and I can go to Ruby's another time and walk the beach and do the Fun Zone or a Duffy Boat, but being with loved ones in this lovely setting, now that's special. All of our guests were duly impressed. Thanks Jeff and Stephanie, I can see that you have taken great care in seeing that your guests have just about everything they need. We are happy campers.

Owner's Response: Maureen, Thank you for your kind words. Stephanie and I put a lot of effort and thought into providing our guests with everything they need to make their stays most enjoyable. Unfortunately for your group we can't control the weather. We were out of town during your stay and we have heard it rained very hard. We are glad to hear you and your guests got to enjoy the inside activities including watching the football games. You were a wonderful guest and we appreciate the way you took care of our property. If your travels bring you back to beautiful Newport Beach we would be glad to have you back. Regards, Jeff & Stephanie

The location and amenities were perfect for our needs.

  • 5 of 5

The property faced the ocean and was within 100 yards of the ocean and pier. Perfect location. The view from inside was beautiful and the balcony was amazing. Updated and beautiful property with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The owners were wonderful and kept us up to date on events in the area and checked on us via text and email during our stay, and were very prompt in answering questions. I will be back!
