This charming original beach house has been lovingly maintained and redone over the decades. Many families have enjoyed the property for over 100 years. Perfectly positioned between the piers on the Balboa peninsula, visitors will enjoy both the sun and surf on the beautiful beaches nearby. The bay-front is 7 houses away with multiple bay beaches for children not ready for the big waves of the Pacific Ocean. Bike for miles along the oceanfront boardwalk or stroll along the quiet bay-front to the Balboa Village with shops, restaurants, the Balboa Island ferry and the fun zone close by. 6th St. is one block away containing a convenient small store /deli, a coffee shop, and our wonderful local public library.
The open floor-plan feels large with the living room, dining and kitchen connected for big family meals or friendly get togethers. The dining table can seat 8 and the stand-up bar at the kitchen is a great gathering place. The front patio is perfect for any meal at the large outdoor teak table.
Bedrooms: - front upstairs bedroom has a bay view from the king bed and a comfortable sitting area that converts to an extra queen bed. The large back bedroom has multiple beds. A nice upstairs patio sits directly off this room. The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed, and the bright “garden room” has a day bed that can sleep 1 or 2 and contains extra seating. These 3 sitting areas allow your group to all be together or spread out for different activities. Outdoor seating areas allow for sun or shade all day.
The house has all the amenities: Wi-Fi, cable, fully equipped kitchen, linens, washer and dryer. The house is filled with beautiful varnished wood and hand-built details, the “schooner” bathroom, the owner’s local artwork, our New Zealand seagull, a toy basket, nautical & other books, games, and a ships bell to ring for dinner.
We hope you enjoy this house and get to experience the tranquil streets of the Balboa Peninsula bay-front. SLP12755
