About Shannon Keller

We have been married for 25 years and have 4 wonderful children. Our son is 22 and our 3 girls are 19, 13 and 8.

Shannon Keller purchased this house in 2012

Why Shannon Keller chose Balboa Island

We have been going to Balboa Island for most of our adult life and fell in love with the uniqueness and magic of the Island. 1305 is right at the heart of all the shopping and restaurants that the Island has to offer. The Island truly gives you a small town feel and allows you to get away from all the business of everyday life. Yet, it is just 30 minutes away from just about everything you could do in Southern California. From Disneyland to Fashion Island, etc.

What makes this house unique

All Summer time guests (7+ nights) will receive a $50 gift certificate to the Legendary Village Inn Restaurant which is located next door to our centralized location.

Perfect Place for a Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
If you ever have seen Jaws and wanted the small town beach feel in beautiful Southern California excluding the killer shark this is the perfect place for anyone. It is in perfect location for access to all of the shops on Balboa Island and you are only a short walk to ride the ferry to take you to Newport Beach. You will not regret heading across the street grabbing a cup of coffee from Hershey's market and take a morning stroll around the island. If you want a perfect vacation spot this is the place for you.

Fun Beach House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5
The beach house was darling, with red, white and blue decor. Great location, near shops and beach. Very Clean and included beach chairs, beach towels and boogie boards. We love Balboa Island and were very happy staying at this house. Balboa Island is very family oriented and not crazy busy like Newport, we love it!

Balboa disappointment

  • 2 of 5
We booked this small Balboa Island unit on-line, sight unseen, and stayed for 10 nights, which proved to be a mixed bag at best. The location is next store to the only local bar/restaraunt that's opne late, which was not a big problem, except late at night when the smokers and loud crowd stood outside to light up ... next to our window. While the unit was ok in terms of general lay out, decor and furnishings, the bedding (you'd think this would be a primary consideration for any rental unit owner) was sub-par by any standard. The mattresses were shot, the head-board was unattached and leaning against the wall, and the 2nd bed room was worse. The unit strongly smelled of wet dog and bug spray when we arrived and which persisted for most of our stay. Ours was the downstairs unit, and it could sure use some better insulation as we heard EVERY footstep, dog trot, or fork dropped above. There are no drapes or screens on some windows, and as it's not air-conditioned, you just have to leave them open and hope for the best. There is NO assigned parking, and this proved to be a real problem for most of our visit. The GOOD part was that we enjoyed the island and the very nice people who worked there.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry you were disappointed in your stay, I just wish you would have let us know while you were there so we could have fixed the issues that we had control over and compensate you for the ones that we did not. It is our number one priority to make sure you have an enjoyable stay and we are willing to do just about anything to make sure you have a fun relaxing time! Balboa Island is a special place. The Village Inn Restaurant is a fantastic place to eat with a great new owner who is very considerate about everything and has gone to great lengths to make sure there is no noise coming from the restaurant and I have had no complaints about them the entire 2 years that we have owned the house. I will be addressing your concerns with him immediately. The queen size bed in the master bedroom has now been retired (given away) and we are putting in a brand new bed! The bunk beds in the second room are less then a year old and are in almost perfect shape. The bunk beds are really meant for kids or young adults. We do allow dogs (unlike most rentals on the island) and will address this with our cleaning crew so that they make sure the unit is fresh and clean upon anyones arrival. I have stayed in the lower unit many times and we have actually never really had any complaints about the noise from upstairs but I think it has more to do with who is up there at the time of your stay. I wish you would have let me know so I could have gracefully addressed the issue with the people above so that they would be more conscious of their movements. We are a half a block from the water and there really is no need for screens. There are drapes or window coverings on the windows that face the street, the rest of the windows have frosted glass and do not face anyone (no one can see in to them even if the window is open) so there is no concern about privacy. We do not have assigned parking and in the summer it can get pretty busy during the day and parking can be a little more challenging but you should be able to park within 2 or 3 blocks (they are short blocks) from the house even in the busiest parts of the summer days. Again, I am very sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your stay and I only wish I knew about it in time to help make your stay more enjoyable. If you should decide to return next year I would be more then happy to make a special arrangement for you and your family to make up for this last stay! You can even stay in the upper unit if you would like.

Long term renter

  • 5 of 5
I lived in this adorable beach house for 9 months during the winter rental season. It is located right next to Marine Street where you can enjoy the shops and restaurants of the Island. The home is beautiful decorated and comes with everything that I needed. Not to mention that the owners are extremely kind and accommodating. I will definitely be back!

Excellent Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5
First off, the location of the property is great. Located right next to the main street makes for easy access to all shops and getting onto the island. The home is clean, in excellent condition and decorated nicely. Newly remodel shows in tiling and hardwood floors. Stocked with everything you need in the kitchen and throughout the home. Wonderful owners. Relaxing and homely makes for a fantastic stay long or short!
