HISTORICAL COTTAGE RETREAT - ISLAND CHARM AND PERFECT LOCATION!

Balboa Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Newly Restored Cottage Retreat Near Charming Main Street (Marine Ave) & Bay

One of the most artist rendered houses on the island, the Cottage Retreat is separate from the main house and has its own private entrance on the same property as shown. It's the perfect alternative to big chain hotels, minus the per night parking fees, internet fees and resort/hotel taxes (average $54.20 per night), and long check-in lines. This property is private with your own parking garage and 2 patios (one large and one small). This property is ideal for an executive, single or couple who enjoys a unique experience (Sleeps only one or two people and is a min stay of 3 nights). Savor the quaint setting and historical charm of Balboa Island. This property is only 1.5 blocks away from a variety of local shops, restaurants, 'Balboa Ice Cream Bars', and local flare galore! Enjoy a short walk to the bay or take the famous Balboa Island ferry for a 5 minute scenic ride across the majestic bay to beautiful southern California beaches!

Voted one of the best locations on the Island, The Cottage Retreat is equipped with all the necessary amenities (see list) to have a memorable stay. Enjoy the charm of the Cottage Retreat and Newport Beach without ever having to get in a car. Stay a few days or 2 weeks and take pleasure in southern California’s premier weather. Only 6 miles away from John Wayne Airport and very close to the business district of Irvine and Newport. Read more details - scroll below...

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first visit to the "Cottage" on Balboa Island and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The accommodations were just as we expected. And, everything was exceptionally clean and very new. The location near the Main Street of town was very convenient. We were within just a few blocks of many fun shops and restaurants. And, we were very close to the wonderful walkway that circles the island. Jodi, the owner, couldn't have been more gracious. She called us both before our visit to see if we had any questions and she provided lots of useful information. After our visit, she called to ask for feedback. We will definitely return in the future.

Cute, clean and comfy cottage!

  • 5 of 5
My stay on the island was absolutely amazing! The cottage couldn't be located in a more perfect location-just 2 streets down from the main street on Balboa Island with lots of shops, dining, water sport rentals and more. The cottage has everything you could ever need to enjoy your stay and is very, very clean. The outdoor patio was perfect for relaxing in the late afternoon with a good book and glass of wine. I very much enjoyed morning jogs around the island, paddle boarding in the bay, biking to the peninsula and soaking up the beautiful sunshine. Oh, and of course enjoying delicious Balboa Bars from Dad's on the island. I would highly recommend this adorable cottage to any single or couple looking for a cute, relaxing place to enjoy their stay on the island!

Awesome cottage on Balboa Island

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was perfect for our 3 night stay on Balboa Island. Everything so clean and relaxing, perfect for my husband and I. The owner was wonderful and so easy to work with. Instructions were very clear. Having a place to park, in a garage no less, was a nice plus. We would definitely recommend to friends and stay again when we are in the area.

Perfection on Balboa Island

  • 5 of 5
This charming cottage is exactly what was explained to me. The property was immaculate!! It is located in a prime location. You can walk to shops and restaurants. But if you want to leave the island it is an easy commute with the ferry within walking distance and car if you choose. The bed is very comfortable, the bathroom is small but has the latest upgrades. Rain head shower, great linens, etc. This is a place for 1 or 2 people. I would recommend it to anyone and will be back!!! Loved my stay. Thanks Jodi.
