Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Shari,

I am sorry we haven't sent you a note earlier, because we all LOVED the house and our vacation!



The house exceeded our expectations. Your furnishings are beautiful, and we loved all the details that

make this house relaxing and comfortable - great showers, sound system, very comfortable beds, and a great kitchen.

My sister loved the Pirate, and insisted on pictures with him.

Thank you for the welcome gift - it was unexpected and very sweet.

Thanks for leaving beach toys available - we used them daily.

I didn't know how usable the Balboa Island beaches would be, but the beach really close to your house was

perfect for a three year old.

Oh, and our new favorite breakfast place - Wilma's Patio. I think I gained at least 4 pounds, and I have to blame the

shakes at Ruby's...oh well, they were delicious.

I could go on and on....

Thank you so very much for a fantastic vacation in a beautiful house. It was so wonderful.

Sincerely,

M. Walter

My family and I greatly enjoyed our stay at this cozy, extremely clean, and relaxing home on Balboa Island. From booking to arriving and then to departure, the owner made the whole rental process clear and uncomplicated.

MAGICAL!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had the greatest time at Balboa Island. We chose this house because of the reviews, location, and description. And we were not disappointed. The house is charming, elegant, and Magical! We could just hang out at the house the whole day feeling right at home.Immaculately clean and well maintained. Obvious that the owner pays special attention to the interior design and detail. The owner is easy to deal with, and answers emails and calls promptly(even while driving through the Mojave desert).Central to everything. A short walk to Marine Ave. for dining and shopping. A block to the ferry to cross over to the Peninsula and beaches. Neighbor mentioned that the owner makes sure everything is pristine and ready for the occupants. The welcome box of chocolates was a nice touch to the start of a great week long experience. My kids and I would just hang out at the house the whole morning, and head to the beach until sunset. Perfect weather while we were there. You have to try all the restaurants along Marine avenue! Definitely would recommend this home. And we will be coming back!

Dear Shari

  • 5 of 5
Three generations of my family spent a week in your beautiful home. Childrens ages from 15 to3. We used all of the bay beaches for paddle boarding, riding in a Duffy to see all the beautiful Islands. Balboa ice cream bars and eating in wonderful restaurants once or twice. The ferry to the ocean side was always fun. The house is as beautiful as your pictures show. What you can`t see however from the pictures is the attention to detail in the beds and bedding, the dishes and silverware, it was all wonderful I have already refered you home to friends but hope you always have room for me.

Beautiful stay in your gorgeous Balboa Island home!

  • 5 of 5
We had the most wonderful time in your Balboa home!! We went for my husband's birthday and mother's day weekend and it was absolutely perfect! Your home left NOTHING to be desired! It is the most beautiful and well-appointed home that we've ever stayed in in the Balboa/Newport Bch area. It was spotless, sunny, cheery, completely up-to-date and had absolutely EVERYTHING we would ever need in the kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms! We took my parents and a couple of our college age children were able to join us for a couple of nights and we all declared it PERFECT! The location is wonderful so close to the ferry. We walked everyday, rode the ferry, went to the beach, etc..
thank you for sharing your lovely home and we look forward to staying there again!

Special family vacation

  • 5 of 5
Sandcastle II was one of the best rentals we have ever had. My family has used VRBO on several occasions and in various areas. The house was adorable, clean and equipped with everything and anything you could possibly need. The owner was extremely efficient and easy to communicate with. It was obvious the owner takes excellent care of the property and provides everything necessary for a top notch rental. We didn't want to leave the property and can't wait to return, even though we live only a half hour away. It was a memorable vacation. Anyone who chooses to rent this house will not be disappointed.

Wonderful Fall Break and week at this beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5
This home is a wonderful beach house. Very lovely, extremely well maintained. Frankly, it was cleaner than most hotels that I have stayed at. The owners were easy to deal with. You can tell the moment you step inside that this home is loved by it's owners. The upkeep and decor are all first rate. Everthing was very nautical and beachy. My kids loved the life size pirate statue as well! The house is perfect for a large family, and had all you needed to cook in and to entertain. We enjoyed having friends visit us.

We went there for Fall Break visiting from Arizona. My kids loved taking the ferry to the beach, just a short walk from the house. We also enjoyed walking to the retail part of Balboa Island as our daily walk.
It was just a short drive to Disneyland and to visit Socal friends in the area.

I would rent this home again in a heart beat. This was my first time renting a home on VRBO and I am sold! For my large family of 4 children this is a much better way to go than a hotel.

Thanks R & S for all the wonderful memories we made at your beautiful beach home.
