Perfect Home for a Serene retreat

  • 5 of 5

Sight unseen, we selected this home as a family getaway after a family wedding in Los Angeles. It provided exactly the serene, restful, and relaxing experienced we envisioned and sought. The home is beautifully decorated, well-equipped, and perfectly located. The owner was responsive and generous. The extensive kitchen provisions, beach equipment, bikes, kayaks, boogie boards, high chair, port-a-crib and more made the home so convenient for us. I hope we can visit again and this time include the new bride and groom!

Beautiful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property on Balboa Island met all of my family's expectations. We were looking for a family friendly (read baby friendly) home that would allow us to walk to the beach, restaurants and entertain a baby in a clean and safe environment. This home met all of those expectations. The homeowner provided a port-a-crib, highchair, extensive cooking utensils and beyond-basic food supplies. It was very clean and comfortable and well equipped with wi-fi, bikes, kayaks, beach towels and more. I highly recommend this home.

Perfect home! Especially for a family!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best experience staying at this beautiful home for a week! The home itself is a gem and has any amenity you can think of available. Beyond that, the owner is wonderful and the house is meticulous! We have a new baby (4 months old) and it was the perfect place to relax and spend quality time as a family! Walking the island as a new mom feels safe and easy - you are just steps from the sand, walking path, and main street. It is so fun to be able to push your stroller and get fresh air. Plus, there is a little beach area just a few houses away with a sandy spot to sit and enjoy the bay and breeze. The owner has included a pack and play which makes things simple for naps and bedtime. On the sunny days we enjoyed the BBQ, beach and huge patio….on the rainy days (very few in So Cal), we got cozy by the huge fireplace.

Truly the most ideal home to enjoy as a new family!! We can't wait to go back again!!

Ideal Home for a Memorable Christmas on Balboa Island

  • 5 of 5

We discovered Balboa Island last Christmas and rented another home based on lovely pictures and a glowing description of the home's amenities. On arrival we were shocked to find a run-down home, not resembling the online description at all. Therefore, we were skeptical about another rental, but love the Island so much, we took a leap of faith and rented this home. Let me just say...we hit the jackpot this time!

As others have already mentioned, this home is exactly as pictured - open, bright, super clean, lovely furnishings, and just steps to the beach and town. There were five of us - all adults and the accommodations were perfect. We had guests for Christmas dinner and the expandable dining table easily accommodated 9 of us. Kitchen is stocked with everything you need, and the appliances and dishes are all new. The kids (30 yr. olds) loved the kayaks and us older kids loved lounging on the patio or in the spacious living room. We slept like babies in the master bedroom, with the window cracked for some crisp air. Quiet location, yet so convenient for walking into town or strolling the bay front to view the Boat Parade and beautifully lit homes.

The owner is a wonderful representative for the area and made sure everything was prepared for us. Her husband even gave us advice on the best breakfast diner - the Galley Cafe - loved it so much we went twice! We'll be back.

BALBOA DREAM VACATION HOME!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was just exactly as pictured and described! Only 3 houses from the water, with paddle boards, kayaks and bikes to use at your leisure. Home is tastefully decorated with a beautiful "coastal living" cottage flair. The 7 of us spent a lot of time on the huge patio for meals and relaxing. Friendly neighbors too. First floor open plan worked well for entertaining local guests. At the end of busy active days I always looked forward to climbing into the scumptous master bedroom King bed with all the pillows and upscale bedding. The "spa-like" master shower was a real treat! All amenities were top knotch! Wonderful renovation! Did not want to leave this lovely dream house, but hope to be back again sometime! The owners were very nice to work with. I highly recommend this home! A true Balboa experience!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

1. OWNER - very accommodating and responsive. She responded to emails in a timely manner. Very trustworthy and professional. She went out of her way to make sure we had a great stay.

2. HOUSE - The entire house has been recently renovated. This place is immaculate and decorated with great style. It has everything that you need and is a very functional space. The house has great finishings. Each bedroom has a TV. It has a large patio at the front where our family spent a lot of time eating and hanging out after the kids went to bed. You can trust the photos posted. This house certainly lives up to the hype.

3. LOCATION - it is a thirty second walk to a small beach in the harbour. We used the kayaks and paddleboards that were made available to us. We did some jogging around the promenade of the island. We walked to the ferry. We rode the bikes provided by the owner. It is a five minute drive to Fashion Island shopping centre. Easy access to the pacific coast highway.

We can not say enough good things about the owner and beach house. Our family had a fantastic time. Book this house with confidence.
