Downstairs there is also one bedroom with one queen bed, another bedroom with twin trundle (sleeps 2) perfect for the youngsters, and a full bath. Upstairs are two additional bedrooms one with 3 twin beds, and one with 2 twin beds. A full bath is shared in the hallway, and a balcony patio is adjacent to the back bedroom. Parking is available for one car in the attached garage, and additional parking can be found on the street in front. In addition to the family room, TVs are found in one of the upstairs bedrooms and the downstairs bedroom. This home is ideal for families or friends looking for a place to getaway and gather. Downtown Balboa Island is a short stroll away with its quaint restaurants and lovely shopping boutiques, not to mention Balboa Bars - yum! The bay beaches are also a quick walk down the street, and the Balboa Pier and ocean waves are just a ferry ride away. There is nothing better than a leisurely walk around the island with views and vistas of the Balboa Pavilion, sparkling waters and boats of all description. Come enjoy our island home and all it has to offer!More
