Hello,

We are Karen and George Watson. We have raised our five children on Balboa Island. We logged many hours sitting on the sand at the end of the street when they were small and watched them learn to surf, swim, row, scuba dive etc... When they grew up we remodeled the house and moved to Montana, where we enjoy riding our horses. We could not leave the Island and our children insist on visiting; so we now have a weekly vacation rental. We hope you and your family will make many wonderful memories here as well.

This is our home when we come to California. We keep it spotless,decorated and well appointed with amenities. We cook in the kitchen, BBQ on the patio, enjoy walking the quiet end of the island. Hopefully, our personal touch will make your stay like family.

We mostly rent to people who return year- after-year to stay in our home. They often feel it is their personal vacation second home. People come from Europe and some from a near by city, Irvine, to enjoy the beach. We hope you will become one of our extended families.

All the Comforts of Home

It is one thing to go on vacation and stay at a hotel, it is still another to go to a location within walking distance of a lovely local neighborhood with interesting shops as well as restaurants, and it is still another when you are lucky enough to find yourself within a stroll of a beach or a harbor... This property is anything but a hotel, it is a vacation spot with all the comforts of home within walking distance of the beach, the harbor, local fine restaurants, and interesting shopping experiences.

The Balboa Island community is well-known to those familiar with southern California, but getting a place near this community or within it is a difficult task. More difficult still is finding a lodging that feels like home, which is another task altogether… If that’s what you’re looking for, this is your new vacation home!

It is intimate, and yet has a large family room and family dining area and a comfortable kitchen. While my family and I stayed there we had the ability to eat in and cook up a gourmet meal together in the kitchen making use of the gas grill outside on the patio, or, we could eat out. Frankly our best meal was with family and friends ‘in’, with the French doors open to the patio where we were greeted by an ocean breeze and the savory smell of our bountiful meal.

The bedrooms are nicely appointed and the bathrooms are more than adequate to serve a large family. The master bedroom has French doors that open to a soothing ocean breeze; and sadly should you need to make use of it, there is also the facility for a home office as well.

It is a clean, delightfully homey, vacation spot in the middle of the Balboa Island community, and our family would highly recommend it to a couple for an intimate time together or a family looking for an adventuresome water-sport filled week with one another. This property can fit the bill for a wide range of experiences, and it is my hope that you will enjoy it as much as my family and I did.

A Long Time Favorite -- Even Better!

We stayed in this home many times in the 80s and 90s and always had a wonderful time. In July 2012 we decided to revisit the house and were pleasantly surprised with the changes that had taken place. The two upstairs bathrooms are sparkling new. What used to be an office is now part of the downstairs living space and makes another bathroom, the washer/dryer, and the garage accessible from the house. However, the very BEST change is that now, upon arrival, all the beds are made with fresh linens and towels are provided for each guest! This decreases the work of taking a beach-house vacation by 120% and a touch of luxury to the trip. One feature of the home that our family, and local friends who visit us, always enjoy is the large wooden table in the eating area. It accommodates large group meals, puzzles, games, drawing, coloring, ipad use, and spreading the newspaper out flat for easy reading; many at the same time! We spend more of our in-the-house time there than anywhere else. The table gives off the good "vibes" of the family that owns the home and of the many who have gathered around it over the years. This house has come to feel more like a home away from home than a summer rental!

Many on Balboa Island to walk to
Car: recommended

Balboa Island is one of seven islands located in upscale Newport Harbor. All of this is often called Newport Beach. Balboa Island is special with a small town charm.

From Balboa Island you can walk and ride a small 3 car and pedestrian ferry to the Pacific Ocean. In 5 minutes you will be on Balboa Penninsula and then it's a short walk to the Pacific Ocean. Here you can rent boats, bikes, surf and ride the waves.

Or you can relax in our comfortable Victorian Beach house and play, sun and swim at the beach on the bay, located four doors from our home. BBQ on our patio. A boardwalk encircles Balboa Island for a pleasant 1.7 mile walk. Add a .79 extra bit to your walk, if you bought a Balboa ice cream bar on your walk!

Lots of shops and restaurants on the main street, called Marine Ave., for you to enjoy and on your walk.

Newport Beach is located on the Pacific Ocean between San Diego and Los Angeles. We are near many attractions such as Laguna Beach, Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, LEGOLAND, South Coast Plaza (major shopping/restaurants), Newport Center (more major shopping/restaurants). You can take a ferry to Catalina Island-26 miles across the sea! Lots of free public tennis courts, run in the back bay or bird watch etc...

Please feel free to see our video on you tube (112 Garnet) Call us at 406 675-0169. We would love for you to be a guest at our home. This is our home when we are not in Montana, and hope you will enjoy it in our absence.
