Both units rent on a weekly basis, from Saturday to Saturday throughout the summer. The 3 bedroom is available on a short term basis year round, either by the week or month.

The second bedroom has a set of twin bed and shares a full tub/shower bathroom with the third bedroom which has a single trundle bed, with a single second bed that rolls out if needed.

Most of our tenants are repeats, coming back year after year for their family vacations. They enjoy our pride of ownership in our well maintained, nicely furnished and spotless beach house. Among our rental agents, it is considered the cleanest house on the island.
This beach house is uniquely situated on a southern corner lot with plenty of sunny windows and ocean breezes. Part of the charm of Balboa Island is the layout of the lots but many of the houses are sandwiched together blocking good light and breezes. If you want to escape the heat of your hometown, our house is your best choice for comfort.

About Nancy Richards
My sister and I grew up in La Habra Heights where our favorite pass time was going to the beach. Now I live in the mountains near Lake Tahoe and my sister lives in Redlands. We enjoy getting together every year for a few weeks at our family beach house on Balboa Island.
Nancy Richards purchased this house in 1930
Why Nancy Richards chose Balboa Island
My grandmother bought this property around 1930 from her sister who lived a couple blocks away on Apolena. When I was in high school, my parents built the existing duplex and my mother lived there for many years. Now my sister and I are lucky owners and dream of our retirement on the Island someday.
