Come enjoy our cottage by the sea! This darling home has been completely renovated back to its charming 1920's roots, but updated to include all modern conveniences. From the newly installed hardwood floors, to the black and white checked tile baths, you will feel like you are stepping back in time while still enjoying a clean, newly furnished, charming Cape Cod/ Nantucket style retreat.
This is a wonderful place to entertain family and friends, or to enjoy one of the many nooks to curl up with a book or enjoy some private time. We have three bedrooms (two rooms with queen beds, one with a full and a twin), three bathrooms and all of the bedrooms have a private shower (one with small bathtub) as well as a queen sleeper sofa. With plenty of places to spread out (bedrooms, living room, dining room, breakfast room, television room, patio), you can gather or relax as you wish. The patio area is spacious, sunny, inviting and private.
We provide numerous amenities to make your vacation as relaxing as possible. There is both a spacious living room with gas fireplace and a separate television room housing a big-screen television with DVD and VCR players. We have high-speed Internet access via cable modem with wireless or Ethernet options. The three bedrooms each have a private shower and each has a television with cable and DVD/CD capabilities. Both the master suite and the living room have full stereo systems for enjoying CDs, radio or cassettes.
The kitchen is fully equipped with gas range, microwave, dishwasher, subzero refrigerator with automatic icemaker, coffee maker, blender, food processor, toaster, professional cookware, and, of course, dishes and barware. We have a laundry room with a gas washer and dryer. The water heater was upgraded to a top of the line tankless unit allowing several showers to run at the same time without ever running out of hot water. Linens and bath towels provided.
Our private, sunny, spacious patio has two lounge chairs, a table and four chairs under a fresh market umbrella, and a propane grill.
The private driveway provides up to three parking spots so you'll never have to worry about finding street parking.
We are located two doors down from the beachfront and just three short blocks from the main street, Marine Avenue, where you will find restaurants, coffee and pastry stores, shopping boutiques and groceries. A short walk to the other side of the island puts you on the historic ferry running over to the Balboa Peninsula, where you will find more restaurants, the "Fun Zone" of arcades and rides, the oceanfront and piers.
Southern California offers many different activities and all are within a day-trip's visit. Theme parks are plentiful (Disneyland, Universal Studios, Knott's Berry Farm, Six Flags Magic Mountain, Lego Land and several water parks) as are many other wonderful activities, including some of the best golf courses in Southern California located only a short drive away. If you have exhausted the many boutiques on Balboa Island, then Newport Center/Fashion Island is a five minutes drive (stores, restaurants, movie theaters) and South Coast Plaza just 15 minutes drive.
Within walking distance you can rent a boat, take a harbor tour, walk along the surf, take the boat/flyer to Catalina Island for the day, scuba dive, deep sea fish, surf, wind surf, bike along paths, grocery shop, swim, kayak, pier fish, choose from a variety of restaurants, snorkel, sail, Jet Ski, body surf and more.
It is only 20 minutes to Disneyland, 45 minutes to Los Angeles, one hour to San Diego and all of its attractions, including the zoo and wild animal park, Sea World and access to Tijuana.
