Guestbook comments from the owner

Shari and Diane.

This is overdue...but I just wanted you to know that our family was blown away by our beach vacation rentals. We knew the location was great, but the bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas, and barbecue equipment were such a surpirising bonus. Your homes with bathrooms for every bedroom and large dining table, warm and charming decor made them the best we've ever rented. Next summer we are taking everyone on a Disney Cruise, but they all want a repeat in 2013. I sure hope we can work something out.

Thank you, thank you for providing us the accommodations that truly helped make this the best vacation ever.

We couldn't have been happier during our stay in this charming Balboa Island home.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely home that abounds with sea side character...simply charming! It has every amenity you could possibly need for a stay on the island or hopping on the ferry to enjoy the ocean. We had our son and his family join us and our 20 month and four year old grandchildren were in paradise. The backyard area is complete with a large table and BBQ. Plenty of room for all. We had such a fun, relaxing time! The owner was easy to contact and very accommodating. We will definitely be back soon!!

Great House Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The title says it all. Down the block is the Ferry to peninsula Fun Zone and ocean beaches. Harbor beach is down the block and the downtown is an easy walk.

The house was prefect for our family get together. Four nice bedrooms, four bathrooms, well equipped kitchen, all the necessities wifi, cable, large screen TV, comfortable furnishings.

Spring Vacation with the Family!

  • 5 of 5

Even though we live 20 minutes from the Island, I thought it would be fun to rent a house on Balboa Island for the family to gather to celebrate Easter and each other! Because it was so close to home, son-in-laws, daughters who were not off for the week were able to join in the fun whether for breakfast,

dinner or an afternoon at the Fun Zone. What I thought was going to be a little get-away to have some fun for the grandkids, turned out to be a special family memory. The house is PERFECT in every way indoors and out -- supplies, linen, housewares galore and is beautifully decorated to top it off. And Shari was warm, friendly and accommodating. We are looking forward to going back!

A comfy and charming retreat.

  • 5 of 5

My family is spread out all over the country, so we've rented a lot of houses together. This one ranks among the very best. It has a wonderful location-right by the ferry dock, close to the main street on Balboa Island, and right around the corner from the little beach on the bay where our toddlers like to play in the sand. We didn't need a car- there was plenty to do in the area. But despite this central location, the area is very quiet, and of couse, very beautiful. The house itself is very cute and clean, with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, and very comfortable beds. It is stocked with everything you would ever need: even the little things like shampoo, soap, spices, books, games, beach chairs and sand toys. This attention to detail in order to make your stay easy and comfortable is rare. We also enjoyed the back patio with a grill and a large table. We will return to this house again!
