Let's Do it Again!

It was a great family weekend for 3 families. The location is perfect, with activities to do that are within walking range for all. The house is spacious enough where no one feels cramped. Perfect weekend and we will do it again.

Charming Cottage on Balboa Island

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic weekend at this little cottage. Plenty of space for a larger group of people, so we were more than comfortable with our party of 3 adults/2 children. The cottage is clean and well maintained, the beds are super comfortable, the kitchen is newly-remodeled with plenty of space for cooking (although we chose to eat out all the time). You can't beat staying right on the Island. The house is a short walking distance from Marine, with it's wonderful restaurants and shops, where we ate breakfast lunch and dinner (especially recommend Amelia's - a quaint, family-owned Italian restaurant). The house is also close to the Balboa Island ferry, which we took across the bay a few times -- hugely fun for the kids. We would (and probably will) stay here again!

The house was perfect for our moms weekend away. The kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms were fully stocked for our stay. Great location. We especially enjoyed sitting out in the patio in the morning and early evening. Owners were great to work with. Thank you for a great weekend!

Balboa Island

  • 4 of 5

We Had a wonderful time on BI and the house was perfect for our get away. The kitchen is beautiful and is stock with all the things you would need to prepare every meal in the house. The four bedrooms are furnished with all you would need and the beds were super comfy. The house is perfect for 2-8 people. Thank you, would definitely rent again.

Super location-great owners to work with

Cute original cottage on a wonderful street on Balboa Island. The owner was friendly and helpful. Because the cottage is old it has a vintage charm. Great space!
