Balboa Pearl is a classic beach gem, offering a wide range of amenities and a highly desirable upper-Peninsula location. Big on both style and value, the Balboa Pearl was recently remodeled and features all-new contemporary furnishings and tasteful décor in neutral colors. Floors consist of hardwood and ceramic tile, which provide a perfect backdrop for beach living. Fresh paint, enhanced baseboard mouldings and contemporary window coverings lend additional warmth and style to this charming residence. Situated on a quiet residential street less than a block from the warm sands of Newport Beach, the single-story Spanish-style cottage will make you feel right at home. The Pearl features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in approximately 1,100 square feet and can accommodate up to 8 guests. The master bedroom features a Queen sized bed complete with linens. A set of twin beds can be found in the guest room, while the living room also includes a pull-out sleeper sofa. A third bedroom in the rear of the cottage which is not a part of the main house has the added feature of a private exterior keyed entry – making it perfect for sharing with a second couple, extended family or visitors. Within the rear guest suite is a full bathroom and a large desk area, as well as a wardrobe and plenty of storage space. The Pearl boasts state-of-the-art electronics and has 4 brand-new flat screen TVs. A TV/DVD combo is located in each bedroom and also in the living room. The living room television also has a Blu-ray DVD player. Complimentary wireless internet access (WiFi) can be found throughout the home. Each bedroom is also equipped with a remote-controlled ceiling fan and the home has a heating system for chilly winter evenings. The cottage’s main bathroom features a renovated shower/tub combo and showcases beautiful tile work and top-quality fixtures. Balboa Pearl’s spacious kitchen is well-outfitted with everything needed to create a fabulous gourmet meal or a simple supper. Appliances include a brand-new dishwasher as well as a recently upgraded microwave, oven/range and refrigerator. All appliances feature black finishes. Black Galaxy counter tops also enhance the kitchen and provide an upscale feel. The adjacent dining area features an elegant 4-seat dining table - although many Pearl guests will opt to do their dining outside on the spacious front patio. The patio effectively extends the home’s living space and provides a perfect setting for morning coffee or al fresco dining. A dining table and additional chairs encourage restful evenings and a gas barbecue is provided for outdoor cooking. A view of the ocean and fresh sea breezes can be enjoyed from the patio, while delighting in the beach-town ambiance. Guests will also appreciate the hot & cold outdoor shower that is located on the east side of the cottage – perfect for rinsing off after a day in the surf and sand. The Pearl also has a communal laundry room with a full-size washer and dryer and a separate utility area with plenty of storage space. Garage parking for a compact size single car is provided on the rear side of the property and a temporary unloading spot is available directly in front of the garage. Whether you’re planning a long-weekend at the beach or a stay for much longer, the Balboa Pearl will accommodate you with comfort and class. All the joys of Southern California’s most beautiful beaches lay just outside your door....Read more

This home is very close to the beach! The home is clean and the management was more than helpful. The outside patio was perfect for our family of 6 for grilling and enjoying the beach life. As mentioned in the description the back/guest bedroom is separate from the main house and there is another condo directly above the master bedroom and back/guest bedroom. The street has some very loud partying neighbors- not sure they are always there but it was slightly obnoxious for our 5 and 6 year old at 1 in the morning. Overall the house was beautiful, clean, close to the beach and wonderful management that were quick to respond to questions. Thank you!
Dear Guest! Thank you for taking the time to review the vacation home, glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay! Hope to see you again soon!

This beautiful single story house with front ocean view patio was our first choice within West Newport and Balboa Peninsula area of Newport Beach. This classic 3 bed room beach house accommodated 8 members of our family and close friends. It appears that the house was recently renovated and nicely furnished to make our stay enjoyable and fun and kept our family members and friends close together.The house is located within one block to the beach and helped us to walk to the beach when we want to and easy to carry our beach chairs, umbrella, and other toys toys to the Pacific ocean of Balboa Peninsula. The house offers a great value for the money and we want to come back when we revisit So Cal. We want to thank the property management for their great service during our entire stay. Thank you again.

We stayed at Balboa Pearl in October 2012 for fall break. We stayed with our daughter, her husband and two children. We had a great time and liked the layout of the home. We had a private bedroom & bath detached from the main house. The home was clean and fresh and very convenient to the beach. There were some college kids living next door and they were quite loud very late at night, but other than that everything was great!
