I am a California native and Balboa Island resident for 40 years.

I love to kayak, sail, paddle board and enjoy resort living within walking distance to the Balboa Island Village and shops.

Garry Graham purchased this apartment in 1983

This rental is located on the quiet side of Balboa Island called

Little Island connected via a quaint, small bridge over the Grand Canal. The walk to the Village is scenic along the Grand Canal and only two blocks away. It's far away from the jet noise of Orange County Airport and the alley traffic . Locals use the alleys to avoid traffic, especially on holidays. Renters really need to consider location on the island and our unit offers a quiet and peaceful location.

You can walk out the front door and walk four doors to the beach to enjoy the solitude of a morning cup of coffee sitting on the sea wall looking out across the bay. Or take a morning swim! Walking is so enjoyable on both Big and Little Island with the ever-changing vistas of Newport Bay to keep you entertained.

Balboa Island Beach Cottage – 4th of July Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Steve made the booking process easy & hassle free- seeing how we were visiting for the 4th of July- one of the most fun, but busiest times of the year- but we only had a few days to spend on Balboa Island (although we would have loved to stay longer)- he worked with us on our dates so we could avoid staying in a hotel. He was also very quick to respond with any questions we had from start to the end.

We were also very impressed with how kind the owner Garry was! Sometimes when you hear the owner lives near-by, you’re not sure what to expect, but we hardly saw him outside of when he was helping or offering to let us borrow beach equipment, or anything else we needed! The day we arrived, he was waiting for us just so he could give us his parking spot- parking is very limited all over the island - which is to be expected, especially considering the time of year we came so this was an amazingly kind & thoughtful thing for him to do. I could go on & on about how nice he is but then I wouldn’t be able to share all the amenities & activities there are!

The beach house is very quaint, clean, and comfortable- perfect for our family of 4. It’s only a 30 second walk to the bay/sand where Garry has kayaks available to use if you’d like- you can also rent paddle boards, which is another great way to explore the bay. We enjoyed our ‘many’ strolls on the boardwalk- just admiring all the well-kept custom homes & beautiful yachts. We kept our car parked the entire time & explored the island via beach cruisers – which can also be brought right on the ferry so you can explore the beach side – all within minutes.

With all the walking & bike riding we did, I never felt guilty trying a variety of Balboa Bars & chocolate dipped bananas! My favorite was the Balboa Bar with everything on it! Yummy!! There are some cute shops at reasonable prices, all within walking/bike riding distance from the cottage. We ate out at Village Inn one night- (great food & a decent ambiance), but most of the time, we just cooked & bbq’d right at the cottage. We went 4th of July weekend, so although it was a bit busy, I must say.. the island had the BEST fireworks display we can recall seeing!

Perfect Vacation Rental

  • 4 of 5
We stayed for a week with our two grandson, ages 6 and almost 12, and it was a perfect spot. The home is comfortable and inviting and well equipped for the cooking which we did each meal. It is located close enough to the beach that we could make multiple trips, if necessary, during the day. The street is quiet enough that our grandsons would play ball in the street. The beds were comfortable; the location is quiet. Everything was clean and ready for us upon our arrival. The owner is pleasant and accommodating. Our grandsons are already asking if we can return next year!

hassle free rental experience

  • 4 of 5
My family of 4 stayed in this property over the Thanksgiving holiday. I am mostly amazed by how easy and simple the whole rental process is. Steve was very responsive and the instructions for the whole rental/check-in/check-out process was very straight forward. The property is very practical and comfortable. The shower is not big but the water pressure is really good! The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is the kitchen could use a little updating - new oven for example. Overall we had great time in the property. My daughter especially made good use of the Netflix account. Thanks to Steve and Gary for letting us rent the property!

Owner's Response: We listen to our guests. Immediately upon receiving this review we replaced the stove and oven with a brand new unit. We think it enhances the kitchen and makes it even more pleasant to cook in.

Perfect place, perfect location

  • 5 of 5
My kids and I stay on the island every summer, but we wanted to take a long fall weekend. Most places only offer week stays. When I found this place, I emailed the property manager and he was quick to assure me that he would allow me to stay the long weekend. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the owner, Garry, who offered us everything under the sun. He was so pleasant to talk to and so accommodating. The cottage was in great shape and offered everything we could have needed.
In the future, I will definitely be booking this cottage. Thanks to both Garry and Steve.

Wonderful and fun family experience!

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect rental for our family to explore Balboa and only minutes to the ferry on our bikes. There was always someone there to help us with anything and they were always kind and prompt. Pictures and information online were a great representation and the house was well stocked and clean.

If we come back to Balboa we will definitely stay here again, as the price was fantastic compared to the others in the same location. It was clean and in good shape and the people there were awesome!!!

Wonderful Beach Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in this great place for a week and were very pleased with the amenities. It is located on Little Balboa Island, which is very quiet, but close to the beach and village with shops and restaurants. The unit was very clean and the nautical décor was perfect for a beach stay. We enjoyed a libation at the outdoor table every night. The owner has thought of everything needed for a beach getaway and is very easy to work with. He has beach equipment, a grill, a big flat screen TV, and can arrange for the use of kayaks if you wish.
We felt the accommodations were perfect for a couple or family of four and we will surely be back. This is a very good value for a Balboa Island getaway.
