Lovely, comfortable beach home on beautiful Balboa Island. We're on Ruby Avenue, just a block to the beach, a short ferry ride to the ocean and a close walk to great shops and restaurants. We know you'll enjoy our house as much as we do.

The space
Enjoy indoor/outdoor living at its best on unique Balboa Island, centrally located on a desirable street, a short walk to shops and dining or to the ferry crossing to Balboa Peninsula with the Fun Zone, Pacific Ocean and beautiful beaches. You are just one block from the popular Ruby "kids" beach on the North Bay Front or sandy beaches with harbor view on the South Bay Front. Make sure you try a famous chocolate-covered frozen banana or Balboa Bar. A must!
This charming two-story, three-bedroom, three-bath home has a wonderful, open floor plan. The downstair has natural light, new laminate flooring and crown molding. The large living room has a river rock and brick fireplace, leaded glass windows and a connecting guest bathroom with shower.
The fully stocked kitchen has a Sub-Zero refrigerator, a five-burner gas stove, a new dishwasher and a new built-in oven and microwave. The open kitchen looks out onto the large dining room space and a comfortable family room area with DirectTV, DVD, Bose speakers and a stereo.
Upstairs, the master suite has a king-size bed, a bathroom with dual sinks and a shower/tub combo, TV and a leaded glass door leading to the upper deck. There are two other bedrooms upstairs, each with queen beds and another bathroom with shower. All the bedrooms have ceiling fans.
Laundry is in the garage. Sorry, no garage parking. There is street parking.
There is also a private patio with a gas BBQ and a front patio with chaise lounges and a table/umbrella, great for outdoor dining.
Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are installed and functioning throughout the house.

Other things to note
2 beach cruisers, a kayak, 4 beach chairs and an umbrella are provided for your enjoyment.
