Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful home! Definitely exceeded our expectations. The location could not be better- right on the bay front and perfectly centered between the ferry to the Balboa Peninsula and Balboa Island's main street. We had two parking spots in the carport which was nice since the island is busy in the summer.



The accommodations were great. There is a large patio on the boardwalk with a big, clean grill. There is an open floor plan downstairs with a large sit down bar for entertaining. The bedrooms were spacious and nicely decorated. There is a big jacuzzi on the roof! We had access to the Duffy boat, kayaks and bikes.



The owner was really helpful in giving us recommendations about restaurants and places to visit. Overall a really relaxing, wonderful week. We have stayed in hotels in the area in the past but will definitely rent this home for our next visit. It made all the difference being in a home that was both elegant yet comfortable. Thanks to the owners for a wonderful vacation!!

A FABULOUS EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
The house is amazing. We were able to spend quality family time with ourselves and the myriad of friends who we acquired along the way LOL! House is perfect! The toys, and especially the duffy boat, were a special treat. The kitchen is easy to work with, and the Island itself continues to have the magic of our childhood.

Owners could not have been more friendly and cooperative. Many recommendations for restaurants and things to do. But, who needs to do anything when you have a house on the bay, with the tranquil setting at night to enjoy.

A thoroughly enjoyable experience, with great amenities!

We rented this house for the week of Thanksgiving. The house is beautiful and spacious, with a gourmet kitchen that literally had everything we could possibly need for our Thanksgiving dinner. The owners were fantastic before, during & after our stay. They gave us tons of information regarding the house and all the toys that came with it. Speaking of toys, the Duffy boat was the highlight of our trip! I think we spent just as much time in the boat as in the house. Great for sightseeing and watching the Christmas decorations going up. We used the 2 kayaks, hot tub & golf cart often. This was such a great vacation and the house, location, & toys were absolutely perfect!
