We had the best vacation of our lives. This home was perfect for our family. It is in the perfect location on the little island and was only 1 block from the water and a couple blocks from downtown to all the shops, local market and everything else that makes balboa so special. The home was incredibly clean and well kept. It has flat screen tv's 2 perfect sitting rooms and an incredibly nice master bathroom. Our kids loved their room as well that had 2 twin beds. We can't wait to come back next year!
