The Space

steps to the sand in beautiful balboa beach.(web site: thebalboafunzone)you have your own private large bedroom with shared bath. the room is well ventilated. the bed is a queen size. we have had 4 people stay over before, we just added an inflatable bed. it seemed tight, but it worked just fine. thats the way it is here at the beach, cozy. the living room and kitchen is open for your use. Balboa is on the Newport Beach Penninsula. everything is within a very short walking distance. there is internet. park your car on the street or parking lot.(meters are free after 6pm) we have a quiet courtyard to relax, or a really short walk to the ocean or newport bay. we are on balboa blvd, so it can be a little noisey at times, but thats normal here at the beach.the windows are dbl pane, so the room can be very quiet by just closing the windows. we ask that you dont smoke on the premises inside or in the courtyard. The balboa island ferry is a short walking distance away. there are a lot of shops and restaurants on balboa island and here on the penninsula, there is always plenty to do. at night there are very nearby fire pits on the beach, or enjoy some bars and dancing around town. if the calendar says not available, check with us with your dates, usually we can accommodate you anytime, unless im already booked of course. thank you for reading our ad. come stay with us ! ~hunter & marilyn

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My wife and i had a wonderful stay with Hunter. He was such an awesome host and felt like an old friend. As soon as we arived Hunter took us to the fire pits out on the beach, (was evening), where we shared a bottle of champagne. Was really nice to have Hunter's bikes to explore the town and ride the bike bath. Would stay again without hesitation!

  • Hunter was super helpful and accommodating of me and my crew during a Balboa-area photo shoot we had. The perfect host - very chill and laid back. He made us feel very welcome in his home and let us do our thing. He was also flexible when we needed to check in earlier than expected and check out later. Can't recommend this place enough if you want island-style hospitality and a beachy atmosphere! The decor in the house was great, and although I didn't stay the night there, the room looked like a nice cozy place to crash after a day at the beach!

  • Hunter is the nicest person who really took care of us! Hunter and Courtney are wonderful people and superb , kind and conscientious hosts who really go out of their way to make sure you make the most of your visit. Hunter's place boasts the most amazing location you could ever wish for , a stones throw away from the gorgeous beach. Would highly recommend a stay here!

  • Hunter was very friendly guy. I was surprised how he could be this kind. :) . I had a dinner party with my friends, and he provide me what i need for the dinner setting. Table, chairs, plates, grill...etc.

    This house is just 1 minutes walking distance to the beach.
    And in the night, there is a wood fire on the beach. therefore,
    people can bake marshmallows :) I would like to stay longer next time.

    The room has big bed looks like queen size bed, and
    table and desk, looks very cool.

    Internet access is good, and I used hunter's computer for my works. He is very kind. and his neighbors are very nice too.

    This will be your best choice in the Balboa beach!

    As a new norwegian member of the airbnb, my girl and I did not know what to expect. We wanted to stay at a nice beach and meet some real local americans.. This is our impessions:

    When we first met Hunter, he started be giving us the nicest tour of the neighbourhood. This guy knows everyone! Not strange they call him the major! He treats you like you're family and even drive you around in his van. He is norhing less than fantastic and his nice girlfriend Courtney make this stay hard to forget. If you want tou can borrow surfboards, bodyboards, skimboards, wetsuits and bikes. He even took us to Disney. We had the best time together, and I already miss theese friendly people. This is what airbnb is all about!

    The room is big and has a comfortable big bed. There is no ac, but its not needed since its groud floor. Not much noise from the street.
    The bathroom is small and cosy, with a nice shower.

    Balboa, where the apartment is located, is close to newport beach and one of the nicest places in the whole cali. You can also bike to huntington beach. All surf and tan heavens. The apartment is 50 metres from the beach, perfect.

    My final words; Don't hesitate, just book this place, you'll love it and them! A clear 6 on the dice!

    Staying at Hunter's place was perfect for my quick trip to Newport Beach after a long day of driving. His home was spotless, the room was large and the bed was comfortable. Beach all around. What more can you ask for? Such a gracious host and immediately made me feel comfortable and welcome.

  • Hunter was an amazing host! He arranged parking for us which can be difficult in summer, and made us feel right at home. He let us use his bikes each day to ride around town so our stay was as relaxing and stress free as possible. The room was clean and comfortable and the location is about a perfect as you could ask for!!! I would recommend Hunter's place to anyone who enjoys being at the beach!
