One of the most attractive features of this vacation home is the availability of an attached 2 car garage, given the shortage of parking spaces available on Balboa Peninsula. The garage also stores 3 beach cruiser bikes can be used on the ever-popular bike path along the nearby oceanfront boardwalk that stretches for several miles along Balboa Peninsula as you take in breath-taking ocean views. On those days you choose to take the 5-minute walk to the beach, we provide you with beach towels, beach chairs, and umbrella.
The nearby Balboa Fun Zone is one of Southern California's oldest and last great coastal amusement areas. Since 1936, the Fun Zone's ferris wheel has been a day and night landmark on the Newport Harbor scene, beckoning all to join in the fun. Completely rebuilt from the ground up in 1986, the Fun Zone's ferris wheel, arcades, fun food, and shops still make it the highlight of every visit to Balboa and you are just a 5 minute walk to these attractions from your condo on Cypress St.Since 1919, the nearby Balboa Island Ferry has provided continuous service between Balboa Peninsula and Balboa Island. The crossing is only about 800 feet but it is very scenic where you will see sailboats, luxury yachts, sea lions, dolphins, and pelicans diving for fish.
This location is unmatched, within a minutes walk to the beaches, bay, countless restaurants and bars including a Pavillions (grocery store) great for stocking up on all your goodies.
