Located less than three short blocks from the best stretch of beach in town one direction, and just steps from the bay in the other direction, all details have been thoughtfully planned and executed. Probably the most visible – or invisible – features are the front sliding glass doors that retract into the walls, providing a spacious indoor/outdoor mix of seating and entertainment as the front patio blends into the living, dining and kitchen areas. Custom materials and tastefully-appointed furnishings have been carefully chosen for a monochromatic setting that is relaxing, yet energizing at the same time: the perfect combination for any successful vacation stay!

Locals know the three-mile-long stretch with the harbor on one side and broad, sandy California beaches on the other as “the Peninsula.” The Balboa Peninsula has two piers with a view of a shoreline, surfers, and sunbathers spanning for miles. A walk straight down Main Street brings you to the historic Balboa Pavilion, made famous in the 30s and 40s for being the home of Big Band era legends Count Basie and Benny Goodman.
The Balboa Peninsula has many sit down restaurants and quick food stops for people hitting the sand for a day at Balboa Beach, and the variety of bars and live music makes the Peninsula a regional nightlife destination. Some of the places locals hang out for good seafood and a casual fun atmosphere are the Crab Cooker and Woody’s Wharf. Anglers can bring home dinner from one of the sport-fishing vessels and whale watching enthusiasts can see some of nature’s most beautiful creatures up close, as Balboa Peninsula rentals and adventure boats launch early and often. But a trip to the Peninsula wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Balboa Fun Zone, where the Ferris wheel has stood for years!
Please be advised this is a strictly no smoking property.

Hi Barbara, thanks for the kind words. I'm glad that you enjoyed the beach house and that all went well. You are so right about the location to this property -- it is close to everything, but being at the end of the street it can be quiet. We hope to have you back again soon!
Nikki, I’m glad that you had a great time! Thanks for mentioning the snacks storage, we haven’t heard that before. I’m going to have our team look into clearing out a cabinet that can be used for food storage. We’d be happy to have you back again. Thanks, Scott
Thanks Diane, I'm glad that everyone enjoyed the property!

Thank you so much for the kind words and the wonderful review. We always aim to make sure our guests feel comfortable. Vacations are important and we know it is our responsibility to play our part in making them great!
Paolo — Thank you for the nice review and we appreciate your stay. You are right, the garage is steep and I would not want to park a manual transmission in the garage, but it’s easy to park an automatic in the garage. For our future guests, you CAN block that garage at any time as that is a legal space. LIke all densely populated areas, parking is a challenge, but we always make sure our guests have a space!
Grant, our team is always excited to know that we did a great job for our visiting families. We know that people can spend vacation anywhere they want and we want to respect that by providing a great place to stay. We hope to see you again soon!

Francisco, thanks so much for the great review about 35th Street and we are glad that everyone enjoyed their stay with us. We really do try hard to make sure everything is as expected by our guests. Let us know when you want to visit again! --Scott
Teresa, thanks for the kind words about the property. I like your suggestions about adding some hooks in the bathrooms. Even though there are towel racks that can be used, sometimes a little extra space is needed. We will be adding some additional hooks in the next couple of days for future guests. We hope to have you back next year!
Thanks for the kind words. Your review will help other make the choice to stay with us in the future and have a great vacation.
