My husband and I rented this house with one of our daughters and her family. Our other two daughters live in Orange County and visited us often during the week. It would be hard to improve on any aspect of this house. Lots of room, wonderful layout, gorgeously decorated, perfectly supplied in every way. It is steps away from the bay, where our grandchildren enjoyed playing in the sand and watching kayakers launching in the early morning. The beach was a short walk away through the idyllic neighborhood. We walked to the Fun Zone, rented a Duffy Boat, visited other beaches, walked around Balboa Island and very much enjoyed the five (!) outdoor seating areas. We had breakfast and lunch in the kitchen area; for whole-family dinners the dining area was very nice. Funky furniture! If circumstances allow, we would be interested in renting this house again next year.
