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.

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.

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!

Absolutely Charming

Fully equipped apt. was just perfect. Lived on the Island in 70's so it was a bit of a walk down memory lane. Much nicer than staying in a hotel and good location for visiting family and friends in the area. Very comfy bed in a nice size room. Kitchen surprisingly large for an apt. Plenty of room to have entertained guests in the living/dining area. Can easily walk to everything. Balcony overlooking courtyard was enjoyed in the afternoon with a peek a boo view of the bay. Loved that the owners kept the 1935 period feel to the place. Just charming! Valerie made us feel very welcome with personalized touches. Will definitely want to stay here on our next visit to the area!

My wife and I had a wonderful time visiting Balboa Island and the Laguna / Newport Coast. This locale was perfect, close to everything and very private at the same time. First time visitors to orange county coast, coming off season peak was wonderful. We spent three nights...we will be back, very relaxing, great food and people watching trip!!!
