About Sue Ellen Waters

Second generation of family own this property. The house is well loved and cared for. It will remind you of Balboa in the 1950's and 1960's.

Sue Ellen Waters purchased this house in 1950

Why Sue Ellen Waters chose Balboa Island

Located 1/2 block from the South Bay Front on the lovely Grand Canal. We have our own private dock which makes using the kayaks and paddleboards a breeze. This family has been enjoying Balboa Island since the 1950's. The island charm has hooked a third generation!

What makes this house unique

Sit on the front patio and watch the boats and walkers pass by. Easy access to market, restaurants and island stores. Once your refrigerator is stocked there is no reason to leave the island. It is a wonderful place to unwind and have a relaxing vacation.

All beds are new, great linens, comfortable chairs and sofa and very clean. Short walk to the ferry which will take you to the ocean.

Comfortable Balboa Island Stay

  • 5 of 5
If you wish for a water front location with water sports equipment, this is it. The kayaks and paddle boards, for my family, is the deal maker. Launch or watch from your vacation door step. Perfect size for 6-7 persons, close to the shops, without the noise and traffic. The home is clean and inviting. The owner gave us perfect and accurate instructions. I most certainly recommend this to friends, and plan on a future stay. If you need transportation, park the car, move it only for street sweeping day, rent bikes (beach cruisers) across the Balboa ferry on the peninsula, and you are set! Stock up on groceries the first day, and if you forget something, you can bike to a super market less than a mile away across the main bridge on Bayside Drive. If you want ocean waves, make an adventure out of your stay by traveling to 18th Street on the peninsula by way of ferry, and ocean front bike path. Bungee the wave and skim boards on the basket and handlebars. 18th is great because it's a 20 minute journey, less crowded than the spots near parking lots, and the sand flattens out, with the start of longer (no shore break) waves. And you're a stones throw from the Newport Pier, 20th St., with shops and food spots. When your done at the ocean beach, head back to Grand Canal, and board or kayak around the Balboa Island, and Little Island too. You can keep any eye on the kids while barbecuing dinner.

Sit back, relax, watch the world go by

  • 5 of 5
Want to feel uptight, painstakingly hand wash the crystal wine glasses and sit upright so as not to dent the couch cushions? Then this place isn't for you. Want to actually let go of the world you left behind and sink into your bones? Then rent this cottage. Overlooking the channel, with cozy bedrooms tucked away so your family can hibernate, paddle boards and kayaks so your family can ring the island, a patio table and BBQ so you can eat meals al fresco in the warm breezes, this cottage is exactly the prescription for family VAKAY. The furniture is comfy, not designer. The beds are comfy and cozy and the sheets are cotton. There are towels galore for the bath or the beach. The kitchen is outfitted with every kitchen gadget you can think of. There isn't a dishwasher, but how do spell "Kids laughing and telling stories over soapsuds"? Sue Ellen was helpful, considerate, and the cottage is clean neat and tidy. Our whole family of 6 adults loved our stay and wonder how soon we can return.

Home away from home!

  • 4 of 5
This cottage was the most perfect place for our last week of a very hectic holiday. My parents, 2 children and ourselves had plenty of space and privacy. Its location allowed us to do as little or as much as we wanted with easy access to main roads that had us arrive at places such as Disnelyand in no time at all.

We were greeted by the owner who was at the cottage waiting for the arrival of canoes and paddle boards that turned out to be for our use. Many hours of fun were enjoyed. A few days later a followup call was made to ensure that we had everything we needed, now that is customer service.

The rooms, layout and cleanliness 10/10. The quaintest of shopping street just around the corner, with a picturesque stroll along a jetty lined pathway lead us to a ferry. This gave us easy access to yet even more activities and restaurants, as well as adventure, take the car on the ferry!

We most definitely would stay at this classic cottage again and would most certainly recommend to family and friends.

Our home away from home.

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of five; my husband and I, two teenagers and a six year old. This beautiful Balboa Island cottage was perfect for us! Full of vintage charm and cosy comfort. Everything was so clean and fresh.The owner is lovely and there if you need help. By the end of our two week stay we felt like we were home! We will definitely be back. Thank you.

This property is a bargain, relatively speaking.

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at two other properties on Balboa Island in the last 4 years. This property is a good bargain inasmuch as it is located on the Grand Canal and close to Marine Drive for shopping, coffee stops and dining. It is older than some, but has been well-maintained and is clean. There are a few things that could be done to enhance a stay, but they are not very consequential. The Owners are very cordial and open to correcting problems (light above the kitchen sink did not work. It was fixed the following day). The tenant on the second floor could be heard at times, but did not interfere with sleeping at night.

It will be hard to beat this property in this price range.

Our Family Loved It!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great cottage in a fantastic location. It's right on the canal, very close to shops and restaurants, and within easy walking distance to the ferry. We walked to some great restaurants and had frozen bananas and Balboa bars every night. There is a small market right down the street. It's also in a great location if you want to drive over the bridge to a super market or go to Fashion Island. My family enjoyed fishing and paddle boarding right off the small dock. There were nice neighbors and the owners were wonderful to deal with. If you are looking for a relaxing spot to enjoy Balboa Island with your family, I would recommend this property to you.

Notes:
An updated original cottage! It is very charming, clean and comfortable. There is a gas log fireplace, built in closets, new BBQ and range. A wonderful front patio to barbeque and watch the world go by (and kayaks and paddleboaders!). Gas log fireplace. A furnace heats the front of the house and electrical heaters for the back 2 bedrooms. Ceiling fans in all bedrooms, kitchen and living room provide plenty of cool breeze. This is a perfect house for a family or 2/3 couples. The apartment above garage has a long term tenant.
