I moved to Balboa Island 20 years ago and fell in love with the warm, friendly lifestyle.

Kari purchased this house in 2004

I loved everything about it -- the location, the bright, open feeling, the kitchen upgrades, the hardwood floors, layout of the house and TWO patios. It just feels like a happy place

Drive over the bridge onto Balboa Island and you will sense an 'ahh' feeling of leaving the stresses and noises of the outside world far behind. I'm not kidding. I've lived on the island for 20-plus years and I still feel it every time I drop into the village. And a stay at my beach cottage will remind you of simpler times -- bike riding, walks along the beach, frozen bananas, friends over for BBQs -- life's simple pleasures in a bright and airy setting that turns cozy by night around the warm fireplace.

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5
From my first contact with the owner, she was most kind and accommodating. As others have written, she was available at all times and didn't hesitate to help or make suggestions. The cottage is spectacular.... MUCH more than the photos show. Comfortable times ten. Beautifully decorated. In a perfect location. As someone who likes to cook, I remarked several times about how well the kitchen was equipped. I have a vrbo-listed home and THIS is the kind of review i want to read. And this is well deserved. You cannot go wrong spending a week or longer here.... I had never been to Balboa but quickly made friends. Most of all, enjoyed relaxing in this fabulous cottage. I live on an island in the Caribbean so it takes a lot to impress me... and this cottage and the people here certainly did. Thank you so much, K.

BALBOA ISLAND COTTAGE

  • 4 of 5
WE FOUND THE COTTAGE TO BE VERY CONVENIENT TO ALL RESTAURANTS AND DOWNTOWN BALBOA. NICE UNIT FOR A FAMILY AS THE TWO BEDROOMS WERE SPLIT. WE FOUND ONE NEEDED TO TAKE THEIR OWN KITCHEN CLEANSING AND BATHROOM ITEMS SO ONE WOULD HAVE THEM WHEN THEY GOT THERE. THE OWNER WAS VERY HELPFUL AND ACCOMMODATING. LOVED THE LITTLE PRIVATE PATIO FOR THOSE AFTERNOON RELAXING TIMES.

Cozy cottage charmer

  • 5 of 5
This cute little place was a perfect set up for anyone looking to explore Balboa... Having the attached garage was a blessing considering the parking on the island during the day was a premium... Can't blame anyone for gathering here for fun in the sun.. The main area of town was just one block over which made it so convenient at dinner time.. All you had to do was cross the alley to get to a restaurant ...too bad there wasn't a back entrance. The gated enclosed front patio was wonderful for my dog who enjoyed getting a little morning sun... the covered back patio was so nice for morning coffee or even having a quiet El Fresco meal...

Comfortable and close to everything!

  • 5 of 5
Great rental for our family of four. Linens and towels were first rate, kitchen was nicely equipped and barbecue in the private patio was great. Street is quiet but close to stores and restaurants on Marina, and an easy walk to both the ferry and local grocery stores. Large front patio area was great for enjoying our morning coffee, entertaining or for just watching people. Close to boat, kayak and paddle-board rentals, and an easy walk to the beach. The neighbors are very pleasant, and the owner was great! Everyone in our family had a fun and relaxing week...thanks!

Surprisingly beautiful weather in early summer!

  • 4 of 5
This is a nice little house which is close walking distance to the main downtown area shopping. It had everything we needed. Its great to have a washer/dryer available especially with kids! The owner was very quick to respond to any questions we had about anything. My only gripe about Balboa Island (not this house) is that it is under the flight path of John Wayne airport so if you like to sleep later in the morning (after 7-8 am) forget about it! Those jets are noisy, but if you are an early riser you'll have no problems!! I'm surprised that with all my research not one person mentioned the airport noise...so maybe its just me???

Balboa Island Perfection

  • 5 of 5
I rented this cottage for my friends visiting from Norway and it was a huge success. The cottage is absolutely adorable. It's clean, bright, spacious, cheerful and decorated better than any rental I have ever seen!! I wanted to move in after seeing it! The cottage is impeccably decorated with a charming and perfect blend of beach and designer furnishings. The house feels more like a home than a rental as everything is in perfect shape with like new appliances and furnishings. I would rent this place to live in year round! Being on the Island is as good as it gets. My friends left saying it was the trip of a lifetime, and they can't wait to return. The adorable house is not the only perk, the owner Kari is as good as it gets. She was an absolute delight to meet in person, and she truly wants the renter to feel as if it is their own space for the week. She respects the privacy of the renter, but is there for you if you need anything. She has everything you need in the house to make your vacation complete. This is a MUST see and having lived on the Island for ten years I know what most of the rentals look like, and can truly say that this rental is far superior to what is on the market. My friends will be back to rent this home every summer. The Island offers everything you need from close proximity to the beach, grocery stores, shopping, Fashion Island, Laguna Beach, etc. The safety and close knit community of the Island provides the perfect environment for families. We will be booking this rental again next year! Thank you Kari for making their vacation perfect!!!!
