Escape to the beach at this classic 3BR/2BA home on Balboa Island. Built in 1936, it's one of only 20 homes on the island by Leon E. Yale, a renowned architect and builder who brought his love of Norman-style architecture to all his creations. The home brims with old-world charm and bygone attention to detail; original woodwork and native stone finishes give the home a delightfully unique character. Situated a block from the bay, the home is within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants lining the boardwalk and Main Street.

Built in 1936, it's one of only 20 homes on the island by Leon E. Yale, a renowned architect and builder who brought his love of Norman-style architecture to all his creations. The home brims with old-world charm and bygone attention to detail; original woodwork and native stone finishes give the home a delightfully unique character. Situated a block from the bay, the home is within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants lining the boardwalk and Main Street. ABOUT THE HOME Inside, historic charm enchants at every turn, from the original woodwork on the stairwell and ceiling beams, to the wood-burning fireplace built from native stone. The living room has seating for six between the three armchairs and a sofa, and a 32” flat screen TV invites you to catch your favorite shows. Prepare home-cooked meals in the fully equipped kitchen, complete with a full suite of appliances and well-stocked wood cabinetry. Enjoy coffee at the breakfast bar for two, or gather at the wood dining table set for four. Soak up the California sunshine on your lovely garden patio with ample seating, al fresco dining space, and a gas grill. Upstairs, sleep soundly in three comfortable bedrooms with full closets and dressers, including a master bedroom with queen-size bed. The second bedroom offers two twin beds, while the third bedroom includes a full-size bed. The guest bathroom on the main level is configured with a walk-in shower, while the second-floor bathroom is equipped with a shower/tub combination. Extra perks at this vacation rental include complimentary Wi-Fi, beach essentials, and a washer/dryer. Street parking is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. This home doesn’t have A/C, but it is rarely needed thanks to the cool coastal breezes on the island. THE LOCATION Nestled on a quiet tree-lined street, this Balboa Island home is the perfect destination for your next family getaway. Situated a block from the bay, the home is within easy walking distance of the many shops and restaurants that line the boardwalk and Main Street. For a refreshing treat to satisfy your sweet tooth, stroll 10 minutes to Dad's Donut & Bakery Shop, a neighborhood landmark famed for their frozen bananas. Then, climb aboard the Balboa Island Ferry and bring the kids to Balboa Fun Zone, an ocean-view amusement park just 15 minutes away.
