CHARMING HOME ON BALBOA ISLAND!

Balboa Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3-4)

Balboa Island is an absolute jewel in the middle of Newport Bay. There is a 2 mile walkway around the perimeter and a charming 2 block main street with unique shops and fine and casual dining. My cottage is very inviting. Features a courtyard with outdoor fireplace. It is one bedroom with two bathrooms and a separate sleeping area off of the living room. Perfect for two or a small family. It is possible to sleep one additional person on the twin bed size couch. Centrally located between Los Angeles and San Diego. Great for day trips.

The neighborhood is very relaxed. This is a popular destination so there is a fair amount of activity which makes the courtyard a welcome retreat. My home is one street away from the main street. It is so very quaint! There is a big mixture of old beach houses and new upscale construction. It is a very wealthy area with down-to-earth residents.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a most enjoyable Island vacation in your incredibly warm, cozy, comfortable and beautifully decorated Island home. (I love the stained glass, the gorgeous tiles, and the fireplace.) "Charming" is the word I was searching for - your home is charming and it has soul. Thank yu for the privlege of renting us your home. May 2010 bring you much happiness.

LOVE THIS HOME AND EXPERIENCE OF ISLAND LIVING!

  • 5 of 5
My two teenage daughters (17,18) wanted to "live the beach life" so I rented this home for 4 nights and we were amazed at the spacious and beautiful accommodations. The photos DO NOT do justice to the size of this lovely home. Beds were super comfortable, the sofa can easily be turned into a larger than single bed just by removing the decorative pillows. The kitchen and home accoutrements are above and beyond what you would expect. I had a selection of wine glasses to choose from for white or red. The stained glass windows seem to change with the time of day - so beautiful. We entertained here two times and our guests were very impressed with the Spanish style, beauty and relaxing lay out. The patio is private and a very relaxing place to end the day of shopping! The location is amazing - 1/2 block off of Main Street to Starbucks and a short distance to Balboa Bars - a nice trek in the evening. Love this place - love Jill as she is unobtrusive but available and very sweet. We definitely plan to return!

Owner's Response: You're awesome Kerry! You, and your delightful daughters, are welcome back any time! Thank you for your review! BTW, for anyone wondering, Balboa "Bars" refers to the chocolate dipped ice cream bars the Island is famous for! :-)

A PERFECT VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
We came to stay in Balboa to be near a new grand child and returned again recently and hope to continue to enjoy Jill's ideal place again and again. The house has a sense of home without clutter. It
provides great comfort and its indoor/outdoor aspect is to be treasured. It is private, quiet and altogether delightful. Jill kindly allows guests to take advantage of her condiments and spices, something many
VRBO's do not. Everything is comfortable, relaxed, and clean. My family and I would highly recommend this home. Balboa is a delightful island, a ferry ride from the ocean and close to everything we care about: Laguna Beach, our children in Costa Mesa and Corona del Mar. Jill, too, is a delight.

TERRIFIC PROPERTY IN GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We had never been to the area prior to our recent visit so we were relying on the details found on the web and conversations with the owner to determine if this was the right place for us. Jill, the owner, answered all my questions quickly. We booked for a week and are so happy we did! The location is wonderful; minutes to water, beach and restaurants, yet tucked away. The private courtyard really makes the place special. The home was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. There are even champagnes flutes in the cupboard that we put to good use in toasting the engagement of our daughter which occurred during our stay. Jill is great and she makes an effort to keep a very low profile when home. We have plans to return and highly recommend this propoerty and owner to anyone. And yes, we would be planning to rent this property again even if we had not celebrated an engagment there. Balboa Island is a a very special place.

STYLISH, FUNCTIONAL AND WELL-LOCATED

  • 5 of 5
This is a spacious and unique place with a Spanish mission/early California style interior, a full and a three-quarter bathroom (really nice with my wife, daughter and I visiting), a fully equipped kitchen with an adjacent dining area and a comfortable living room with fireplace and large screen t.v.. Outside is a terra cotta tiled private patio area with fireplace. This beats a plain hotel stay any day of the week! Jill's place isreally well-located on the island itself - one street over from the island's primary street with it's restaurants, cafes, boutiques, frozen yogurt & bananas, etc! and great for walking around (and you can walk around the island as well). While basically on the coast, to get to the north or south part of O.C. it's fairly quick & easy with the 55, 5 and 405 freeways all about 10-15 minutes away. We visited Disneyland while there and made it there each day we went in just about 20 minutes by way of the carpool lanes of the 55 and 5 freeways. Also it's about two minutes away from Pacific Coast Highway and then a nice 15 min. drive south to CA's amazing Crystal Cove state park.
Jill's place was clean and well prepared (towels, t,p. etc.) when we arrived. Jill was both friendly & responsive and the logistics & communicating to reserve the place went seamlessly. We will recommend this place to friends who are traveling the O.C. and plan on getting back there sometime ourselves!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay in Balboa over the Christmas holidays. Jill greeted us with Christmas cookies and had a few decorations up, which made us feel right at home. The place itself is cozy and inviting. A perfect 1 bedroom nook for a couple. We particularly enjoyed the sunny courtyard. We'll be back!
