About the property

Welcome to the largest and best family property on Balboa Island available for weekly and nightly rentals. Built in 1920 and belonging to the same family for almost 100 years, this newly renovated and decorated, spectacular 5 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom, South Bayfront home sits on the widest point of Newport Harbor with stunning harbor channel views down to Corona Del Mar and the Balboa Pavilion. When you walk into the first level of the home you are welcomed by the newly remodeled kitchen with fresh white cabinets, stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. There is an island with four bar stools perfect for a small lunch gathering in the kitchen or a larger dining table area next to the living room. The downstairs living room and dining area are a single space that is surrounded by windows that reach from the floor to the ceiling, taking in every view that Newport Harbor has to offer. Then walk out onto the large patio and enjoy the good life!

A set of the living room windows are sliding glass doors that open up to the front patio. This stunning front patio is fully equipped with comfortable lounging furniture and a stainless steel gas BBQ grill. It is the perfect spot to grill up some burgers and drink a cocktail while enjoying the sight of the boats cruising by.

The first bedroom is located downstairs with a queen sized bed and close access to a full bathroom with a walk in shower. There is also another half bathroom on the first level.

On the second level of the home there are two bedrooms that could both be considered master bedrooms with king sized beds and master bathrooms inside of them. There are two other bedrooms perfect for another couple with a queen sized bed and another great for children or additional guests containing a bunk bed with a twin sized mattress on top and full on the bottom.These two bedrooms share access to another bathroom.

Towards the bayfront you will find the second living room which is perfectly set for hanging out with the wet bar, comfortable couches, cozy chairs and game table area. This living room is also surrounded by windows that reach from the floor to the ceiling giving you that stunning view of the harbor from all levels of the home!! No other property on the Balboa Island bayfront gets you this close to the water!

Located at the end of Marine Avenue, you are truly steps away from all of the best shops and restaurants that Balboa Island provides. You can enjoy a delicious and hearty breakfast at Wilma’s Patio or if you just want a quick snack you can stop by the famous Dad’s Donut Shop and Bakery and enjoy and chocolate covered banana! Once you are stuffed, rent some bikes and take a cruise around the island. The views of the water, homes and boats are unbeatable.

Not only does Balboa Island sell itself with its exquisite and classic charm, but this home will be the cherry on top of the most delicious vacation you will ever have! Come and enjoy all Balboa Island has to offer in this stunning home which also includes use of a large dock and direct access to the Island Boardwalk for people watching or to launch the kayak and stand up paddle boards included with this bayfront beauty.

Best location on the island and so roomy!

Dena Goodman

Our family loves this house! So many great memories! It’s our happy place. The view from the living room upstairs and patio down stairs is the best. No need to leave the house but when you do, it’s only steps for a quaint breakfast, lunch or dinner. It’s the best. We missed the kitty that used to come visit?! We named him Sylvester. So much room to spread out!

A family gathering to remember.

Overall Comment

We have lived in the Newport Beach area for many years but never stayed on Balboa Island. We chose 1400 S Bayfront for a family 70th bday complete with a sand castle erected on the beach in his honor. The home is very comfortable to include a large well stocked kitchen that accommodates prep, cooking and wine tasting by all. There are enough bedrooms and bathrooms to allow our group to stretch out and relax. The upstairs living room was the BEST view Balboa offers and you won't want to miss the sunset!
To say the location of this home is desirable is an understatement. The grocery market was just a block away, we walked to coffee shops and we never drove our car out to dinner.
This home is clean, organized and the bedding is lovely.
Make this you next vacation rental in the Newport Beach area.
5/5 STARS.

Perfect Family Vacation

Overall Comment

We have a big family & this beach house was perfect for us. Everyone had their own bedroom & bathroom & privacy but could come together and play cards games & have our meals together. Very spacious with a gorgeous view over looking the bay. Our grandkids were over joyed to see a seal, dolphin, fish & crabs. We had a tough year with illness & surgeries so this was the perfect place for our family to come together & relax & be together & make some lifetime memories. We will definitely be back. Thank you for making everything so easy for our stay. We appreciate it.

Delightful Week

Pleasanton CA

Overall Comment

My family had an exceptional week on Balboa Island at this home. It was clean and included everything we needed/wanted. The view was amazing and we enjoyed the dock access. We had to text about several needed items and someone came out immediately with needed supplies and repair. We couldn't have been happier with our experience.

We love the location of this property. It’s close to town and is right across the sidewalk from a little beach on the bay that is perfect for our little ones.

Magical beautiful 1400 Bayfront

Overall Comment

I have stayed at this Bayfront home many times. It is perfect for a family stay. To come downstairs in the morning and are greeted by sunshine and beautiful bay serene picture is wonderful and so peaceful. The floor to ceiling windows are perfect. I love my stays.

Best home on the island to watch the parade and relax!

Irvine Ca

Overall Comment

The property is perfect. It has everything you need and want to relax and enjoy the annual boat parade. From the great location, well stocked kitchen for family dinners, 3 great parking spots, comfortable bedrooms, and the fabulous family rooms upstairs and was the perfect spot for our family holiday gathering. Although you are located on Bayfront and there are people walking by, the property's front patio is slightly elevated so it feels a bit more private than other properties nearby. We look forward to returning in the summer months next time!!

Hi Ellen, We're so happy you enjoyed your trip and your rental. It is a perfect house for the boat parade! We look forward to having you again. Thanks! - NBVP Team

Great house, great location

San Juan Capistrano ca

Overall Comment

This house provided exactly the experience we were looking for. Both the downstairs and upstairs family rooms are spacious and could accomodate our whole group, or the group could split off. The views from the upstairs with all of the glass are beautiful. The dock was great and allowed us to bring our boat and water toys. There was alsod a kayak and paddleboards available in the garage, although we brought our own. The location is perfect and allowed us to not have to worry about packing food. The place is on Marine Avenue, which is the street on Balboa with all of the restaurants as well as the Irvine Ranch Market, about a block away. We rented a duffy and 8 e-bikes, all from the island. After renting this place, this vacation required essentially no planning given the close proximity to food/groceries and entertainment. Our group can't wait to go back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week on Balboa Island. It was a multi-generational family reunion of sorts and the house was centrally located, nicely appointed and very comfortable for everyone.

This was our fourth year coming to this house for the winter months! We always enjoy the wonderful view and comfort to be found here. The owner upgraded the router and the television system which was great because of Covid lockdown. Sorry we could not have guests join us this year. We have fun memories of 1400!
