Overview

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 location. Beautiful condo and a patio you can spend all day enjoying.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are all accurate in showing the quality of the condo and how close it is to everything you could need. Everything we needed was available in the condo and if we felt like going out for food or a drink it was just 1 block from the condo.

Great place for families

  • 5 of 5

Recently came down with our three kids for their Spring Break. This was a great place! Very clean, updated nicely and very spacious. They had bikes, boogie boards, sand toys you name it! The communication with the owners was very responsive as well. Great location to the beach and Balboa Island. Would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This property was fantastic and immaculate! A short walk across the parking lot and you're on the beach, which is so nice having a young child and lugging around all our beach stuff! I would definitely recommend this rental. Stephanie was so accommodating and pleasant throughout all of our correspondences.

Get what you pay for and this is overpriced, beds were all cheep and uncomfortable, Odd damp smell

  • 1 of 5

Parking is secure, actually hard to find way out of darkness, exit is unclear

Courtyard and stairs were not clean. Stair rail was rusted away.

Could not leave windows open because of smoking from neighbor balcony

Could not sleep as beds were hopelessly uncomfortable and continual noise from apprtment above.

Refrig and many kitchen cupboards contained half used food items

Very disappointed, cannot recommend

Owner's Response: We are sad to hear that you did not have a good experience at the beach condo. Condo living is not for everyone, and there can be challenges with vacationing neighbors. The condominium complex is a non-smoking facility and we have contacted the owners of the neighboring units to inform them of violations. We do leave condiments and spices for guests use; these items are checked regularly for freshness. Guests may also purchase unopened products from the local grocery store. We appreciate your comments and will address the issues you have raised. Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion. Regards, Jeff & Stephanie

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Nicely remodeled condo that was close to the beach and just out the doorway to the boardwalk. The deck is large and a great place to grill and relax. Enjoyed riding the bikes on the boardwalk (although the bikes are in need of tune ups: pink one is making a lot of noise, brown bike's handle bars don't stay up). We had 7 people and were a little short on dishes: there were only 6 bowls, and maybe 8 plates. Same with silverware. We found ourselves hand washing dishes for every meal to have enough dishes since we tend to eat in more than out. Would be nice to have double the dishes so you can use dishes for a whole day and then run a load in the dishwasher. Also a little short on toilet paper and paper towels (would prefer to have an extra 4 pack of TP and extra roll of paper towels hanging around).

That said, the place was comfortable (including the beds), clean, had enough pillows, blankets, and plenty of towels. WiFi and radiant heaters worked well.

We saw a whale right along the beach 200' away! Enjoyed the boogie boards for short stints since it was not super warm weather (but more towards Newport Pier where the beach is flatter). Paddle boarding in Newport Harbor around Balboa Island was super. Got ice cream and walked around Balboa Island. Lots to see and do and a wonderful place to come "home" and relax!

Be aware that Amazon Prime Now is available for this area. If a Prime member, then free 2 hour delivery of groceries that you order online. Checked out the prices and they seemed pretty reasonable. Didn't try it out since we had already shopped, but it would be something we would try next time.

Owner's Response: Cathy, We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation and appreciate your comments. We have taken the bikes to be repaired and ordered an additional two sets of dishes. Currently we leave two 4-packs of toilet paper and will place a couple extra rolls in each of the bathrooms and paper towels in the kitchen. There is so much to do at the beach, and we are happy to hear that you took advantage of the water activities. We hope to see you back in the future. Regards, Jeff & Stephanie
