Overview

About the property

3 bedroom condo close on the Balboa Peninsula

Sitting on one of the most desirable corners of Newport, rests this peaceful 3 bedroom, 2 bath vacation condo. Boasting 1300 square feet, this condo has recently gone through a total renovation, including new furniture and appliances. A calm and modern atmosphere awaits you at this beach escape.

Fond memories will easily be made in this open living and dining room, whether you decide to play some of the provided games, watch a favorite movie, or reminisce about moments at the beach. Attached to the living area is a roomy, raised patio outfitted for sunbathing, entertaining and barbecuing. And you don’t have to be a seasoned chef to enjoy what our kitchen supplies; from cooking spices and storage containers to granite countertops and new appliances, the kitchen contains everything you need to make simple snacks for a day at the beach or a delicious dinner for the whole family. The master bedroom enjoys an ocean view from a comfortable queen bed, private bath, television and access to the patio. The second bedroom has a queen bed, television, and a view of the Historic Balboa Pier, while the last bedroom has a full and single bunk bed. All three televisions have access to DirecTV, so no one has to miss their favorite sitcom or drama while on vacation. There is also an in-unit washer and dryer and WiFi for your convenience.

The condo is located just steps away from many popular activities such as boating, paddle boarding, kayaking, and the famous Balboa Fun Zone and Ferris wheel. There are two bicycles available for picturesque rides on the boardwalk or a visit to the Newport Pier. If you want to venture off the boardwalk, you are only a short stroll to the Balboa Island Ferry, which will take you to Balboa Island for shopping and delightful food adventures. You are 30 minutes from Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm and upscale shopping at Fashion Island, and only 1½ hours to San Diego.

The complex features a private gated entry, elevator access, and a gated parking garage with two private parking spaces for vehicles ***with a maximum height of 6 feet.***

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Sandy Toes Getaway! The location can’t be beat. Our teenage kids loved being able to walk across the street to the fun zone, beach, restaurants, and shopping. It’s right on the boardwalk but sits high off of it just enough that people aren’t looking in at you so there is more privacy. The deck was our favorite part. Always sunny and a huge space for everyone to enjoy the outdoors. Everything in the house was comfortable and stocked with everything you need for your stay. The underground parking was very convenient and felt very secure. Even with it being so close to bars and restaurants, it was very quiet. We slept soundly every night of our stay with no issues. The hosts were very attentive and easy to reach if we needed anything during our stay. If you are looking for a great spot to enjoy Newport, we highly recommend this one and we will be back soon for sure!

Perfect Beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect beach getaway! Great location right on the boardwalk and walking distance to the beach, food, and bars. A perfect patio to lounge and watch the scene of the boardwalk with people walking and biking about. The house is equipped with everything you need and very spacious. Our group had the perfect time and the owners were the most pleasant and accommodating people to communicate with. We hope to stay here again in the future!
