Stayed here with 6 girlfriends ( all over 60 yrs old) and this house was perfect for our needs. We parked our car and did not use it for 4 days. The house has every thing that you would need. It was very comfortable and decorated very nicely. We spent every night outside on the patio that has a pass thru to the kitchen. We already have booked this cottage for our next girls trip.

This is such a cool place that I selfishly don't want other people to even know about it.
But the owner was so great to work with that I just have do the right thing and tell
you what a phenomenal place Cindy is renting.

This home is clean, comfortable, and charming.
It's been updated in all the right ways, and yet that comforting
old Balboa Island grandma touch is still present.
The floor-plan is smart with a split bedroom layout : two bedrooms and a
bathroom upstairs and two sleeping areas and a bathroom downstairs.
The home also has "fun things" like the pass-through counter from the kitchen
to the outside patio. We now have priceless footage of our four-year-old playing
"restaurant". I think that window was seriously the highlight of his trip - along with
the bi-level front door complete with a real ship's portal.

This home really is central to everything.
It's an easy walk to the ferry, ferris wheel, fun zone, and then onto the beach.
Or in the opposite direction - an equally easy walk to the main street that
has a great selection of restaurants, shops, frozen bananas and balboa bars.
There is even a Pavilions grocery store less than a mile away.
Basically - I wish I was still there.

Bright, clean beach cottage was perfect for our family of 6

The beach house was awesome! It felt like a balboa island beach house. The upstairs was great for my wife and I away from some of the kids. The kids had their own little area. We rented bikes and used the garage to park the bikes. The house had everything we needed. The courtyard was bright and big with a great bbq that uses Kingsford coals. The house was located in the center of the island. it was convenient and quiet. It is about halfway between Marine Ave (Main Street) and Agate (The ferry street). Also, Diamond is next to Ruby which has the best and biggest beach on the island. The price was fair. We will stay there next time we go to Balboa.

Our family felt so lucky to find this property on Balboa Island. Cindy and Mike were very welcoming and helpful during our stay. The home was spacious, with 4 bedrooms one of which we made into an office overlooking a nice sized interior court yard. It's one of the few rental homes that has an inside court yard. It has a very beachy feel and we spent many hours sitting out on the front porch enjoying the afternoon sun. The mid-island location makes it an easy walk to the waterfront, the ferry or to the shops and restaurants on Marine Ave. We highly recommend this rental, and hope we can come back again soon!

Located in the center of wonderful Balboa Island, a short walk to the bay front or to quaint Marine Avenue for shopping or dining. Very near the Balboa Ferry which carries you to the Fun Zone, or ocean beaches and scenic Balboa Pier.
