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 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

We enjoyed the perfect sized small cottage (downstairs unit) to kick off our summer. Very relaxing. Near the marina sand.

The house was lovely and well equipped. The location was very good. However, we had a hard time getting the bicycles which were in the listing, and although we had requested 3 times prior to arrival, we were never able to get the kayak, which had also been in the listing.

Mini Easter Vacation

What a great place to stay and the location was perfect. We loved that we were able to walk to everything. Downtown was beautiful, shopping and eating was amazing. The house was beautiful and very very clean. Loved the decorations. The beds and pillows were better than what I have at home or shall I say so comfortable. Thank you for sharing your beautiful place. My family and I enjoyed our stay tremendously.

Comfortable and quiet

  • 5 of 5
We brought our 2 girls (10 and 3) to Balboa Island for a long birthday weekend with Disneyland and beach at the top of our to do list. About 30 minutes from door to disneyland parking lot (with fairly heavy disneyland traffic) and a very short drive to corona del mar big beach. This house had everything we needed for our weekend and it is very clean and comfortable with all new appliances and bathroom. And considering how close the restaurants, grocery stores, and beach are located, we were always a couple minutes from anything and would definitely stay again!

Excellent, Excellent and Excellent!!!

  • 5 of 5
This house on Balbao Island is perfect for a family vacation or awesome getaway! It is very clean, newly appointed and in a perfect location. It is exaclty 15 large steps to the bayside sand!! Balboa is super cool and this location is perfectly positioned between Marine Avenue (shopping area) and the Balboa ferry to the Balboa Pavillion. Perfect.

We had one small issue with the heating (that's correct our vacation just happen to overlap on the two days a year that heat is actually needed!) but the owners of this vacation rental were amazingly quick to respond and accomodating and could not have been better!! They had this fixed and showed genuine concern that our time there was perfect!! Our stay could not have been better!

We highly recommend this property and property owners to anyone lucky enough to spend time on Balboa Island!!

Lovely stay on Balboa Island!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful spot for a lovely beach get-away on Balboa Island. The house is a few steps from the waterfront and is perfectly located for exploring this picturesque island and an easy walk to the ferry for a trip across the bay. The house is charming, beautifully decorated and really comfortable with everything you could need or want. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
