Why The Owner chose Balboa Island

We have lived on Balboa Island since 1987. When we drive over the bridge we always feel we are going on vacation even after all these years. We now have a vacation home in Idaho and rent out our Balboa Island home when we are away. It is fully furnished with all our own furniture and we DON'T consider this a 'rental home'.

What makes this house unique

We love to take the local ferry across to Balboa (Pacific Ocean) and walk along the beach. There are many restaurants within walking distance. The 'Island' is quiet and safe. You can fish from the local public piers and walk 1 block to the main street to shop. There is a local market, restaurants and a local saloon.Fashion Island Shopping center is 5 minutes away by car.

home away from home

  • 5 of 5
This super-clean and updated beach house was the
perfect place for our family's summer vacation. We
felt right at home, with all the necessary kitchen
and bath amenities. They provided a television in
every room, including a flatscreen in the living
room, wireless internet, dishwasher and plenty of
room on the back porch to keep our bikes and beach
toys. There was a washer and dryer available in the
garage, so we didn't have to use the local
laundromat. Very convenient!! Also, we loved being
able to relax on the large front porch. Since the
main street is a block away, we were able to
quickly walk over to the grocery store, restaurants
and shopping. My toddler son spent most of his
time at the bay, which was steps away from the
home. This made restroom and lunch breaks quick so
we were able to get back to the beach in no time. I
honestly cannot say enough about this rental. We
plan on coming back next summer for another
vacation and would not stay anywhere else!

Hi Carol -

Just wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying your beautiful home (and weather) on the Island. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary last Tuesday evening with a Mass at St. John Vianney and then dinner at Basilic. It was such a lovely evening with all four of our children, granddaughter, and extended family in attendance.

We have been coming here every Summer for the past 25 years. Our daughter actually got engaged right here on the Island a couple of years ago right under the Diamond Street sign on the boardwalk. Her fiancee wrote "Will you marry me?" in chalk on the boardwalk and then got down on one knee with a ring and proposed. We have such fond memories of the Island and staying at your home this Summer has been one of the highlights! We have enjoyed getting to know some of your neighbors (Len next door and his lovely wife), the mail/woman Yola, and being able to be so close to the South Bay. The plants are looking good and flowering out front. Keeping them watered as it's been warm here.

I've had Nate from Balboa Cleaning Company come every week (Mary at Lora Vance was very helpful and gave me their number) and today I swept out the garage and vacuumed all the carpets in there. I still can't get over how well stocked your kitchen is! You must be quite the cook/baker.

Anyways, I'm not sure where your "home away from home" is right now but I just wanted you to know that all is well here and I hope you are enjoying your Summer as well.
