I moved to Balboa Island 19 years ago and fell in love with the warm, friendly lifestyle.
Drive over the bridge onto Balboa Island and you will sense an 'ahh' feeling of leaving the stresses and noises of the outside world far behind. I'm not kidding. I've lived on the island for 16 years and I still feel it every time I drop into the village. And a stay at my beach cottage will remind you of simpler times -- bike riding, walks along the beach, frozen bananas, friends over for BBQs -- life's simple pleasures in a bright and airy setting that turns cozy by night around the warm fireplace.
