About Kimberly Herold

This property has been in our family for over 30 years. We have recently completed an interior remodel of the kitchen and bathroom. This historical beach cottage was built in 1923 and has been renovated throughout. The cottage retains its original charm while having all of the luxuries of modern day living.

Kimberly Herold purchased this house in 1983

Why Kimberly Herold chose Balboa Island

Beach Side cottage is within steps of the South Bayfront beach, 5 blocks to the ferry, 5 blocks to the uptown village area, quiet and serene setting. The most coveted location of Balboa Island the 100 block of Diamond, just steps from the South Bayfront!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The home was perfect. Beautifully decorated Cape Cod style home. All new had everything we needed and was meticulous. We are particular about bedding and it was top of the line all white linens and towels. I did request more pillows for one bedroom (my wife thought it was excessive) but owner had them delivered right away.



Recommend an early morning walk to the darling main street for coffee and a grab pastries or donuts at Dad's. My wife could have stayed another week to shop at the great boutiques. Restaurants on Main street were great glad we could walk to them.



Super stay, thank you we will be back

Family Haven for Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

The home is gorgeous. We travelled to California with our two college age boys. We did not need our rental car and enjoyed walking to various venues in the area. The home is spotless and current. We will book again.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the most fabulous stay at this property. It was adorable, so well stocked (unlike many other rentals we've stayed in), with awesome comfy beds. Every free minute I had I spent hanging on the front porch watching the boats go by. Thanks Kimberly!!

EXCEPTIONAL PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5

My family had the most wonderful time staying at this beautiful property. The cottage is pristine and very true to the photos with an amazing location, easy walking distance to the main street and steps from the gorgeous bay. The amenities were great and we really appreciated the attention to detail such as the provision of beach items to use during the stay. Kimberly was excellent to communicate with and gave us all the information we needed. We will undoubtedly be repeat visitors and can't wait till our next stay!

Excellent House with very helpful and friendly owner.

  • 5 of 5

The house is excellent in all ways. Location, style, cleanliness, wifi, etc..

I would highly recommend to anyone.

The house owner, Kimberly, was great to deal with and the information supplied was very useful.

We will hopefully be back again soon.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, stunning setting. We stayed here for 5 nights as part of our honeymoon and our stay was perfect. The home is immaculate, very stylish and with everything we could possibly need for our stay. Kimberly the owner was lovely to deal with and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was special. The location is amazing just a few steps to the water and a short walk to the main street of this lovely island which has a great range of shops and resturants. We have recommended the house and Balboa Island to our friends and family here in the UK and have already decided that we will return in the future. Thanks for a great stay :)
