The Rich History of Balboa Island
Balboa Island, located in Newport Beach, California, has a rich history dating back to its development in the early 1900s. Originally a mudflat, it was dredged and transformed into a man-made island by William S. Collins. Over the years, it grew into a popular recreational destination, attracting visitors with its quaint cottages, scenic waterfront views, and iconic Balboa Island Ferry. Today, it remains a beloved coastal community known for its unique character, charming shops, and vibrant events like the annual Balboa Island Parade and Artwalk.Visit Balboa Island Museum for More

Before purchasing in an HOA community you will want to research their rules and deed restrictions, reserve funds, budget, bylaws, and documents of the association. You should acquire a copy of the HOA's operating financial statement so that you understand how the HOA fees are being allocated and ensure the reserve fund is adequately funded.
