Overview

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.

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.

Wonderful! Wonderful Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5
I've hesitated to write a review of my wonderful stay at this charming home ... because I kind of want to keep it a secret (SHHHHH)!! But in all fairness ... that isn't quite right. I rented this adorable, clean, delightful, quiet cottage home for an extended time last winter. I could not have dreamed or asked for a better place. The rooms were very clean, the kitchen well stocked, the fire place provided a nice ambiance and warmth ... and Jill was a delight. She was not intrusive, but available when needed. I easily fell into the rhythm of Island life .. coffee at the local coffee shop, walks along around the Island, shopping for groceries, meals out, stops at the post office, yogurt (yummm), laughter, a massage by local therapist, rides across the island on the ferry, the Ferris wheel and so much more!!! I was sad to leave .. I hope to go again ... for longer!!! It's idyllic!! Thank you Jill!!!

Delightful stay

  • 5 of 5
The week flew by too fast, there is so much to do, we rented kayaks, paddleboards and bikes and enjoyed the island. There is a frozen yogurt shop around the corner now, and our biggest decision every night was balboa ice cream bar or sea salt carmel frozen yogurt! Great location, comfortable furnishings and a courtyard to get away when you want to. Thank you Jill for a wonderful time. We will be back to enjoy your paradise as soon as can!

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.
