Karen & George Watson
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.
