Description

Permit #SLP13283
Located next to the Balboa Village/Old Town Balboa, this oceanfront unit sits on the boardwalk, right in front of Balboa Park's expansive grassy field, with the warm sand and sparkling blue Pacific down the sloping shoreline, just beyond. Guests must walk that short distance to catch a view of the nearby ocean. Due to the original 1910 construction, the characteristics of this property are charming, but still small by modern standards: the floors are slanted and the walls are thin. This property has been priced accordingly for the budget-minded traveler. PLEASE NOTE: THIS HOME DOES NOT COME WITH CABLE TV. ALL TVs HAVE A ROKU DEVICE FOR GUESTS TO ENJOY STREAMING FROM ANY OF GUEST'S OWN STREAMING SERVICE ACCOUNTS.
