1937 beach cottage on Balboa Island - Duck House. Welcome to my home, not a typical beach rental. This is a FULLY furnished 2 bedroom/2 bath home. Perfect for a couple, two couples, or a small family. Duck House has all the modern conveniences along with its original cottage charm. This is not the Balboa Peninsula - Balboa Island is unique. Review pictures for house rules and detailed amenity list. Super Host for over 3 years.
Pricing includes 10% Newport Beach tax. City Permit: SLP12455

The space
Inside Duck House, each bedroom has its own full bathroom. The kitchen is fully stocked with most everything one would want/need in their kitchen. There is an interior patio and the front porch for your outside relaxing. Personally, I am very content to sit at the dining table working away while gazing out the large picture window. Many homes have dutch doors and the top half is open from sunrise until bed time.
Parking is on the street. Street sweeping on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Information will be provided regarding local restaurants, rental opportunities, sights, and more (hopefully some discounts as well). Duck House Balboa site is available for additional details, if you combine those three above words and add the period and com at the end, your browser will take you there.

Where you’ll be

Newport Beach, California, United States

It is Balboa Island - a magical island. If you have been here, then you know this. If you have not been here, then you better come and visit (even if you stay somewhere else) to find out what "Island Time" is really all about.

Born and raised (2nd generation) in Los Angeles. Spent every summer on Balboa Island from age 3 to 18. I work in technology. Currently I am an instructor for Splunk (software), teaching customers how to use Splunk. When I am not working or fixing up Duck House, I am a volunteer coach at Corona del Mar high school. I coach the girls cross country team. My weaknesses are: Dark Chocolate, Red Wine and Sushi As a host, hosting you in my home, I want your stay on Balboa Island to be special.

During your stay

Pearl Avenue is a tight knit community of home owners and renters. Whether your interaction is with me or with another designated host (neighbor), you will be treated as a local. Unless I am traveling for business, I will be your host and you determine the amount of contact. When I am not living in the Duck House (probably because you are staying there), I live just down the street. I will need to come by to water plants and put the garbage cans out for pickup.
