Perfect Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This home on little Balboa is a wonderful spot for a family vacation. Tons of room, very well equipped and a great location. Our stay couldn't have been better. The indoor and outdoor living spaces are perfect for dinners in, evenings by the fireplace and outdoor lunches. We loved it and plan to rent again next year!

Couldn't Have Asked For More!

  • 5 of 5

Family trips can be very chaotic, with that said we searched endless for a home we could afford that was big enough for a small family reunion/ vacation. We had 2 children, one of which turned two during our stay, the other 7. This house was well equipped for all our needs. We were so grateful that my sister did not have to travel from outside the state with all the baby's needs. There was plenty of sleeping room, more than enough room to accommodate hanging around the house without constantly being in someones way or just needing some space to breath (which is typically hard to come across when families get together). The owner was amazing to work with, from all the details upon arrival to a quick and easy check out list. We had wifi passwords, exact locations of where to find things we needed, had a pack and play, high chair, booster seat, stroller, little red wagon, bikes, toys, games, everything and more! I was pleasantly surprised after hauling from San Diego bags of items I thought we would need such as specific spices, Tupperware containers, zip-blocks, paper plates, paper towels, ect. This house had everything and I mean everything.

The beach is literally right there, it's a great location for evening walks, walks to the shops for a quick bite or a morning pick-me-up (Starbucks is literally 5 minute walk door to door). There is a little corner market that is a block or two away, there was a grocery store probably 3 minute drive away. The house was gorgeous, decorated perfectly for a beach house, perfectly for having kids running around, it felt like a home. The big round table fits everyone, it's nice to be able to have family dinner with that many people at the actual dinner table. The neighbors were friendly, everyone around the area was welcoming. Checking out was a breeze, it was nice to just have to do the basics, we felt a little spoiled that we could leave our beds unmade upon departing and that we did not need to spend our last morning deep cleaning and washing all the linens.

So many memories were made while staying here, memories that will be with us for a lifetime. I could not have imagined nor had expected a place so great. We definitely look forward to coming back!

Perfect for everything

  • 5 of 5

We were in Newport for my sons wedding and decided to stay in Balboa. Couldn't have made a better choice. The house accommodated all my children and 3 young grandchildren. Beautiful home in a beautiful area with much to do and see. The house felt like home with everything we needed for our group of 12--loved everything about it. Especially enjoyed the fact that we could walk to town, to the beach, around the island, etc. The owner was very helpful and we would definitely stay here again.

Perfect House

  • 5 of 5

We just held a family reunion on Balboa Island, and this was one of 3 houses rented. It is amazing. Situated just a few houses from the beach, and in a very quiet, friendly neighborhood. The house is equipped with EVERYTHING you could ever want! We especially appreciated the number of bathrooms, the beautiful decor, great beds, and all the kids equipment. The many patios and places to relax gave everyone enough privacy when they wanted it. The owner was extremely helpful.

Cousin Convention

  • 5 of 5

My group of 5 cousins and spouses held our annual "meeting" on Balboa Island this year, and we were delighted with our VRBO house! The five bedrooms and 4 baths gave us lots of privacy when needed, and the large living/dining/kitchen space, as well as outdoor patio, facilitated our storytelling, eating and laughing together. The house was perfectly kept and well-stocked. The art throughout, painted by the owner's wife, added to this lovely decor. We were located very close to the downtown area, the beautiful waterfront, and the fun of the beach. We had no children with us, but this house and location, as well as the beach items stored in the garage, make it perfect for a family with children. The owner was available to us by phone to meet our every need. Honestly, we couldn't have been happier with our house and location.
