Rare find for just 2 people!
Great little place just right for 2 people...clean and cute, great windows to let lots of light in! So enjoyed our time there...convenient to town. Walked the island and loved all of it. Highly recommend this little compact home away from home.
Excellent Business Trip Stay
No issues with the internet. High speed modem, printer,scanner, copier. All that one needs for a productive stay if needed. Sometimes internet modems can get hung up and resetting them does the trick.
Loved The Location
We had a wonderful time on Balboa Island. Jodi was great in accepting our last minute reservation and went to bat to make sure we could get in the cottage at the last minute she was amazing to deal with.
The cottage has a lovely beachy feeling, very clean, newly remodelled and the kitchen is well stocked. We had dinner three evenings at home during our stay.
The location is great we could walk to all the shops, StarBucks every morning for coffee and to dinner. It is a super location to everything Balboa Island has to offer.
My only recommendation please upgrade the internet connection I thought I was back on dial up it was painfully slow.
Just a short stroll to restaurants and shops....a charming apartment with everything needed to enjoy your stay. Also recommend staying on the Island during the "slow" season, we enjoyed the relaxed vibe!
It’s our home base when visiting our doughters and grandkids. It’s always pristine and perfect for a couple visiting or getaway.
Great little cottage
Perfect cottage on Balboa island, hope to stay again. Had great Christmas with family, and then retreated to our cottage.
