My family has a long history on Balboa Island, dating back to the early 1930's. My parents met as teenagers on the Balboa Island Ferry.

Valerie Schnieders purchased this cottage in 2012

We were finally able to 'come home' to the island this past year and were lucky enough to find a 1935 Yale house with this adorable guest cottage. We have a larger than normal lot and the guest house has great privacy. We are one house off the So Bayfront beach and water. So lucky to have our location.

Cute little charm!

  • 5 of 5
Me and my husband stayed in this adorable cottage last year for our 5 year wedding anniversary! It was so comfortable and had adorable beach touches! It was only a short walk away from the beach and many restaurants and shops! The owner was so nice and even provided a message on the scrabble board and treats from a local bakery upon your arrival! If you are traveling to Balboa Island look no further this is the place you must stay! We will definitely be back!

Sweet Little Place

  • 5 of 5
We came to the island to celebrate a friend's 50th. Rather than share a home with a large group we decided to get a little place of our own. I'm so glad we did! It was so quiet and peaceful there. Everything was perfect. The owners were very helpful and considerate and made us feel welcome with some nice touches that I'll keep to myself so that you're surprised.
We spent the evenings on the patio playing cards. Each night we made the short walk to the water and sat on the bench and talked. It was lovely. It's a quick walk to the bakery or to Starbuck's for coffee in the morning but you can have a nice espresso in your room courtesy of their Nespresso machine. Another short walk to the ferry if you want to head over to Newport.
The bed was VERY comfortable and the apartment is immaculate and beautifully decorated.

Heavenly Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at this wonderful cottage. The owners have the cottage decorated beautifully and the bed was like a cloud. Whenever we travel we often lose sleep because we're not use to the bed...but we slept like babies at this cottage. We especially loved the sound of the waves and the seals barking at night...very charming.
We mostly cooked in because we adhere to a special diet and everything was there for us to cook with. We'd eat our breakfast every morning on the deck and enjoyed the privacy and weather! We hope to return very soon!!!

Delightful!

  • 5 of 5
I had visited Balboa Island on numerous occasions, but had never stayed directly on the Island to experience the "special" lifestyle this area affords. The location of the Guest House is perfect for walks along the water, into town, catching the ferry to the Peninsula, and/or just relaxing on the deck. And the thoughtful "extras" provided by Rob and Valerie, to make the visit even more enjoyable, were much appreciated. The unit was clean, comfortable, and private. It is a "must" for those looking to experience the Orange County area in a more relaxing manner.

the perfect balboa island escape!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at this charming beach cottage and enjoyed every moment of our time there! Valerie was the most thoughtful and generous hostess and our family of four stayed very comfortably here. Our children (ages 6 and 10) delighted in the cookies and boardgames thoughtfully left for them and all of the welcoming touches were appreciated! This location is perfect for a stroll into town, nearby great restaurants and more! We regrouped and rested here after a busy three days at Disneyland and I cannot think of a better way to wrap up our vacation. We will definitely return and stay again!
