The rental has limited outdoor space, but then the beach is right out front! A small side deck is large enough for one chair and the gas BBQ. The strip of “patio” in front accommodates several resin chairs, but is not wide enough for a table.
A heavy-duty Speed Queen washer and dryer are located in the garage, with one parking space for this unit. There is an outdoor shower with hot and cold water for rinsing the sand away.
The home is situated a short stroll from the Balboa Pier, Balboa Pavilion and surrounding boutiques and eateries. Visit Ruby's Diner for burgers and salads at the pier’s end, where fishermen ply their trade and dolphins frequently play. Walk the kids to the playground at the base of the pier with an open, grassy lawn for running around and playing games. Balboa Village offers dozens of dining options - Mint Leaf and Great Mex are casual local hangouts, BJs Pizza and Cruisers are known for pizza, and Newport Landing and Harborside have terrific seafood and beautiful bay views from their dining rooms. The Saloon at Harborside has happy hour 11-7 every day! Catch the ferry to Balboa Island via bicycle or on foot to stroll among coastal-chic shops and cafes. Deep sea fishing and whale watching excursions can be booked through Davey’s Locker at the Pavilion.
Stay awhile, there’s plenty to do in Balboa!
