About Peter Leinau
I was born here and raised in this house. As you can imagine, I spent much of my childhood on the beaches or in the water and grew up with a love for the out-of-doors. Studies and degrees followed in biology, natural resource management, and education and I have spent my career teaching and sharing my enthusiasm for science and nature with others around the state. When my family and I are not enjoying 'Island Time' on Balboa Island we currently live and work in the Sierra Nevada near Yosemite National Park.
Peter Leinau purchased this House in 1930
Why Peter Leinau chose Balboa Island
My grandparents built our beach home in 1930. My mother made it our permanent home when she married my Dad in 1952, and now our daughter is the fourth generation looking forward to her Island Time as much as I do. Although the mainland is in the 21st century, when I am on the island I can find myself back in the earlier, easier times. Whether it's coffee with the birds in the garden and an AM walk around the island or kayaking the bay at sunset, I know the Aloha of Island Time will find you as well.
What makes this House unique
Many of the vintage beach homes are gone, and with them the casual Aloha of old Balboa Island. We have chosen to renovate our home and retain that spirit for us all to enjoy! Steps away from the beach and the shops of Marine avenue, yet just off the waterfront bustle enough to provide a sense of relaxation and serenity, here you can truly be on vacation on Island Time. Most of the vacation rentals have multiple units: a front unit, a back unit, an upstairs unit...Here you are home upstairs, downstairs, front patio, and backyard garden/ patio/ play area- It's all yours to enjoy in the Island style.
