As you walk up to this home you first notice the funky purple door inviting you inside. There are several patio chairs on the patios to the left and right of the door, with views of the bay. As you enter there is a lovely living room with several couches, fireplace and flat panel TV. The formal dining room has a beautiful round table, and 6 green and aqua chairs with ocean prints, sea stars, seahorses and fish. The kitchen is modern and beautifully designed, with recessed lighting to give you plenty of light for creating a fabulous dinner, and there are all the essentials, including a dishwasher. There is a door from the kitchen that leads to enclosed brick patio. The built-in BBQ has a rotisserie perfect for the ?Grill Master? to conquer.
The home features three bedrooms, two with queen beds, one with two twin beds, and an extra bedroom with one built-in twin bed with ladder. There is one full bath and one half bathroom, both outfitted with attention to detail.
There is an outdoor shower for washing off the sand and surf. A small garage is suitable for storing bikes and/or beach equipment, but not enough room to store a vehicle.
Latisha A. from Riverside, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015 Great location, awesome neighbors, the house as a whole was just what we were looking for! We loved how close this house was to the balboa fun zone. it was just a short walk to the catalina ferry and our children loved the arcades! Can't wait to book again next summer!
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Thank you for the kind review, we appreciate your feedback on the property and are so happy to hear that it worked so well for your family. We look forward to having you again, let us know when you are ready to come back!
A guest from Fair Oaks, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015 The house was well located for our use and lifestyle. The beach was a block away & no streets had to be crossed. Great for the little ones. Bikes provided gave good get-aways to beach & the "wedge" 6 blocks away. Neighborhood was quiet, out of the commercial district, yet very interactive being on the corner. Front deck was always in the shade, fun to interact with passers by. House slept 9 just fine. One bath seemed to be manageable, two would be better. Kids bed in alcove room is too high to allow 4-7 yr old sleep, no railing and fall would be big hurt. Couple of notes, broiler in stove full of grease, floors swept but not mopped thus dirty on bare feet. Window ventilation and ceiling fans kept house cool at night. Would rent this again in a heart beat even though somewhat dated. Living room large & lots of seating. Perhaps a ceiling fan in the living room?Did not use firepit in small side patio.
Lynn M. from Phoenix, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 16 days in May, 2015 We (8 peeps) had an activity-packed, May-June week of family reunion in this well laid-out house, w/ huge sunlit windows. (The sand & beach is a 1 minute, no traffic, walk.) The tv, dvd player, & internet work fast & consistent. The bikes & beach chairs are super, as is the large kitchen w/gas stove. Shower pressure is amazing, as is the outdoor warm water shower, for after beach rinses. The 1 & 1/2 baths were very clean, as was kitchen, rest of house needs a deep clean. W/D works well. Great front deck, w/table & umbrella, but close to active street for little ones. Back & side decks have privacy fences, a bbq & portable fire pit. 1 good parking space in front of garage. If we owned this house, we would wash the decks, replace non-functional dining rm chairs, provide new mattresses w/waterproof covers, rip out dirty & stained bedrm carpets, replace bdrm skylight, give walls fresh paint & service the a/c. The kitchen knives we sharpened & purchased a crescent wrench for bike seat adjustments. As usual, Burr White staff was always responsive to our questions & requests. 1/4 mile to Balboa Village & Balboa Island Ferry. Quiet, friendly, location.
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Thank you for your detailed feedback on the property!

We apologize for any issues in regards to the cleanliness of the household, and rest assured that it will be taken care of as soon as possible.
Great Value! Wonderful Location! Well Apportioned Home!
Sharon L. from Spencer, SD recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2014 This home has it all. Plenty of space for our family of five, lots of useful indoor and outdoor areas, and a garage full of bikes, beach chairs and water toys. Rent it now! The half-block walk to the beach made it easy for each child to walk alone if needed (youngest is 10). We biked to the Balboa Fun Zone and Pier, Newport Pier area, and walked along the jetty and the Wedge. Never saw the neighbors except in passing. Parking was easy. Linens were plentiful and house was very clean. Burr White is a gracious, easy rental company to work with, offering many special touches that made our stay even better. Thank You!
Reviewed by: Dana W. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 Burr White staff was efficient from start to finish. Prior to check-in, I received regular email updates. On check-in day, their office was packed with eager vacationers. The process was expedient and friendly. The tote bag, towel, bucket, etc. was an unexpected and nice touch. When some minor service was needed for a smoke alarm and light bulbs, Burr White staff quickly responded and resolved everything in a professional and respectful manner. We hope to have another chance to rent from Burr White in the future.
Mark H. from Highland, UT does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 House was large and suited our needs, but was in a bad location. Some of the furnishings needed repair. Example: the dinning room table would lean from side to side with little pressure and the chairs were not very comfortable. The bed in the back bedroom was not comfortable with a hard mattress. The rear sliding screen had numerous holes. Parking is bad all over but this property was especially bad due to the location. The house was clean, and having the small garage for our bicycles was handy.
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Thank you for sharing. Your comments were forwarded to the maintenance department. Hope to see you next year.
Venessa W. from Las Vegas, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 The location was great . The kids loved the outdoor shower . The kitchen was well equipped and our family enjoyed cruising on the beach on the bicycles that were in the garage . I would recommend this house to anyone.
Lourdes M. from Diamond Bar, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2014 Pros: amazing location, cozy house. Big enough not to bump into people. clean (except bath tub). Living rooms and kitchen were spotless and so the rest of the bedrooms. Burr White people were very professional. Will rent from them again anytime. One of the neighbors was very pleasant and friendly.Cons: Older neighbor came knocking around 6 pm & asked us not to make loud noise after 10:00 pm which was OK. A woman went by and kept taking pictures of us/house/activities??? was weird. Other than that EXCELLENT WILL RENT HOUSE FOR LONGER TIME NEXT TIME. THANK YOU
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Glad to hear you had a good time. Please call us next time upon arrival if you have an issue with cleaning as we can send out a cleaner. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
Mark M. from Newport Beach, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 142 days in January, 2014 Love this place and Burr White Did a great job managing the property. Amazing location. Hearing the waves crash at night is very special.
Jessica J. from Salt Lake City, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 The company was great to work with. We had to change our dates about a month prior to our vacation, and they were easy to work with. The house is very clean, although the decor is random, cheap, and cheesy. My only complaints are the garbage cans and the the mattresses. There are only two tiny trash cans and trash service on Mondays. We had a full house and ate in most nights, so by the end of the week the cans were overflowing and flies were everywhere. The mattresses were not very comfortable, but we were still able to sleep. Lots of kitchen and living space. We were not crowded with 9 people + a toddler. Outdoor shower is a nice amenity, although the outdoor deck could use a little repair. The location is fanstastic. We didn't have too difficult a time finding parking in mid-July, and we brought 3 cars. There were some bikes and boogie boards in the garage that we used several times. The beach is very close and not insanely crowded like at Newport Pier. Overall, we had an amazing vacation despite the flies and mattresses.
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Happy to hear a good time was had by all. Your comments have been forwarded to the maintenance department. Please let us know right away next time regarding any issues and we can work hard to correct them. Let us know when you are ready to plan your next stay.
A guest from Orange, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 Our extended family had a great week at the beach. For the price, the location is great and it's on the quiet end of the peninsula. The only complaint was the beds were not very comfortable.
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Hi Kathryn! Thank you for your feedback and your review, we really appreciate it. We are thrilled that you and your family enjoyed this home. It sure is in a great location and close to the beach! We will send the feedback to the owner about the beds, we thank you for bringing that to our attention. See you again in the future! From the staff at Burr White
Warren H. from Friendswood, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2013 Everything at the rental property was ready for us to settle in as soon as we arrived from Texas. The property management staff was very helpful and provided all the information we needed. The neighborhood was great and we felt secure in allowing the grand kids to come and go to the beach as they wished. We thought that parking was going to be a challenge with all the summertime beach goers but it worked out and never had to park to far from the house. Even restaurants and shopping were within walking distance of the place. So it was all good.
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Sounds spectacular. Hope to see you again soon. Thank you for your comments.
Chris M. from La Verne, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2011 The garage on-site was not adequate to park our mid-sized car. If this is a consideration in the rent charged and an promised amenity ...??

Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Thank you for taking the time to review our company, services and the rental property. We appreciate your comments and hope you see you again soon.
Stephanie N. from Claremont, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2010 The house was very roomy and well decorated for a beach rental. The kitchen and bathrooms had been remodeled and were great and well equipped. It was nice being so close to the beach. We enjoyed the peace and quiet. Our granchildren had a wonderful and memorable time. I used to stay in that area with my family when I was a child - many happy memories. Let's do it again! The corner location was a bit busy and we had to caution our grandchildren to be careful when stepping off the deck because of the number of bikes on the sidewalk. We survived and had a great time building memories for them.
Clean and Convenient (but 2 minor things to be aware of)
A guest from Glendale, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2010 It's a well-maintained house four or so houses down from the beach. The beach is beautiful down at Peninnsula Point and so a beachfront house, looking out onto the beach and water is a real draw. If 129 G St is discounted properly because it lacks this feature, this house is a great deal (keeping in mind two little minor issues I note below)Everything was as advertised and we enjoyed our stay (with 2 kids). The house is stocked with wares and appliances and linens, but you should know that the mattresses are not comfortable (they are just old now) and that the sidewalk out front is very busy in the summer as it is the continuation of the beachfront boardwalk that ends a couple of blocks away. This latter fact makes stepping out of the front door with little ones a little treacherous. As for the beds, you'll be glad to get home to your own after a few nights. Also, the garage is tiny (maybe fits a Prius) and so you are really only insured one parking space (in front of the garage). That's not as big a deal as you might expect down in Newport Beach. There were almost always a few spots nearby even during peak hours. Overall: Easy, Relaxing and Clean.
Paula S. from Scottsdale, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2009 We loved 129 G Street from the minute we first saw it. Charming, emaculate, great layout and amenities. We had a wonderful time there and would love to go back sometime.

A guest from Highlands Ranch, Colorado recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2009 Great Location close to the beach. Very nice seating room for family to gather abd a nice kitchen and dining area. No off street parking so you have to look for a street parking spot. Didn't bother us becuse we are use to the drill having come to the beach for many years.Have to watch small kids as the front piurch opens to a very busy sidewalk and street. Air conditioning was very nice as well.
Property Manager Response: Response from Burr White Realty Thank you for sharing your comments about your visit. We are delighted to know that you enjoyed your visit to the beach.

Richard S. from Glendora, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2008 Everything was great -- the house was nice and located close to the beach with a lot of room inside. The location being on busy corner was a bid of a set back, also the parking and very small garage was a small negative.We did have a bit of an over reaction by Jane. We had our son-in-law visiting us (24 yrs) and his 3 friends (26, 28, & 28 yrs). While we were gone to go to the store I received a very aggressive and threatening message on my cell -- accusing us of having and leaving "children" and a threat of calling the police. Just think this call could have been made with a direct conversation and discussed exactly what really was going on and not a report from a laundry delivery person. I don't think it should be a issue to have adult guest visit without a negative reaction within 1 hour? I did understand the concerns -- but I had just rented within the last month without any issues and left the home on Bellvue in perfect shape and very clean.
A guest from Potomac, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2008 Best Feature: Location! Balboa Blvd @ G Street; easy, flat stroll to quiet end of the beach. Daytime street noise, but very quiet at night. BPP is an exceptional residential neighborhood, fewer rental units than other peninsula locations.Beach cottage has recently renovated kitchen and bathrooms: very nice. Four bedrooms are comfortable and adequate for a week's stay. Sunny and bright kitchen, dining room and living room. Less than Expected: One-car garage parking is misrepresented; it's a half garage/half drive-way parking spot for mid-size car. (Street parking was easily accessible for renter and visitors) Internet connection in one bedroom only; no "work station" area. Pots and pans were in poor condition (bring your own non-stick fry pan (8/08).
A guest from Granite Bay, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2008 Very clean home, great beach location, alittle crazy being on a corner. Also, alittle difficult getting hooked up to the internet. House is very well stocked when you arrive. I'd go there again!
