We first discovered Balboa Island as college students years ago and it has been a special place for us ever since.

Kim Bowen purchased this house in 2011

We love Balboa Island! We have lived and vacationed in the Newport Beach area for 35 years. It is like living in a fantasyland; surrounded by water on all sides, with the ocean at your front door for swimming, surfing, sailing, fishing and more; within walking distance of restaurants and shopping. Be sure to try a frozen banana (dipped in chocolate) or a Balboa Bar (ice cream dipped in chocolate) on one of your walks to Marine Ave.. Balboa Island is a magical place!

Ruby Beach is 1 block from the house where you can cool off in the water or warm up in the sun. We are also about 6 blocks from the ferry boat that takes you to the beaches on the Newport penninsula including one of the best surfing spots in Southern California, the wedge. You will also find the fun zone here with more shopping, restaurants and an arcade for the kids. Bike riding, fishing and day trips to Catalina are some more favorite activities.

The house is in a great location. Nice size. We had a great to time. But need to fix drains, dressers would not open easily. Some were broken. Paint peeling over upstairs bathroom window. Construction workers started at 7:30 everyday, so it was very noisy. A heads up would have been nice. The neighbor blew their yard while we had lunch and would not wait until we were done so dirt was everywhere.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting us know about the drains and the dressers. We will certainly address those issues. As far as the construction noise is concerned, I believe you are referring to our neighbors 3 houses down. The houses on Balboa Island are very close together and noise is sometimes a problem. I have already spoken to the next door neighbor regarding his gardener and he apologized for the inconvenience. In spite of these issues, we are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will consider a return visit.

Our family enjoyed a wonderful stay at your home. We rented the downstairs unit. Everything was perfect and your home is beautiful. It was just right for our family. The front patio is lovely, the bedroom situation was great and we loved the big round table for meals and playing games. We'll definitely be calling again for next year!

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
The listing description and pictures were identical to rental. Kim was very helpful and responsive to all of our questions before and during our vacation. My husband and our five children felt comfortable with the layout of the house. We stayed in the upstairs unit and amazingly did not feel as if we were on top of each other. We were just a few blocks away from the ferry, shops, and water. Each day was filled with bike riding, kayaking, walking, shopping and enjoying the beach. We would highly recommend staying at this rental and we look forward to going back again.

Annual Balboa Island Stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time downstairs as it was perfect for us and our kids and our little granddaughter. The kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms were all very clean and appointed nicely and it was great having the garage for our bikes, strollers and beach chairs and toys.
I know we will have a wonderful time when we stay upstairs for our next vacation. Thanks for keeping our Balboa Island trips memorable.
