My family has been a HomeAway member since 2011. We own this home in Newport Beach, and we also own a home in Santa Barbara where we work and raise our 3-year old baby, Lucas and our 2 year- old Marcus.
Greg Nagler purchased this house in 2011
I grew up in California, my wife grew up in Japan, and we both love Southern California, and all the great things to do here! My family has owned this home for over 15 years, and it has been passed from one generation (my parents) to us. Balboa Island is a very special place and we are sure you will enjoy it!
With the large, retractable skylight in the Master Bedroom, comfortable dining area, a living room and patio that faces the water, and a few minutes walk to the harbor and Oceanfront, we knew this was the property on the Island that we wanted to own. Lots of morning sunshine in the bedrooms as well!
This was our first experience with VRBO and it was all positive. From the initial request through to arrival day, Greg (the homeowner) was attentive to our needs and kept in touch.
Our family of 4 adults and 1 child travelled to California for a wedding. Having no idea what to expect, we arrived at the house to find a very clean, wide open house with direct access to the beach. We were amazed as the house was so much more than what we expected from the photos.
The main street in Balboa is a minute away with access to restaurants and shops. The house came with bikes and kayak which made it fun to just take a break without having to rent those things.
The kitchen was well equipped and we hosted 2 dinner parties for local family and friends while staying there, using the BBQ to prepare a feast!
Lots of towels, linens, extra pillows, blankets-- and a washer and dryer to keep things fresh on our own schedule.
We left after a week deciding when we would book the same house again. it was a great experience and we thank Greg and his family for making the vacation so easy and stress-free for us!
We had an amazing time staying at this lovely property right on the canal on Balboa Island. The house had a great layout for our family, everything was well-maintained, and the location was perfect... walking distance to the grocery store and more importantly, to Dad's donuts! The rental was particularly well-stocked in terms of kitchenware, with the added advantage of having lots of kid-sized things! Plus all the games and the cabinet full of Legos were a wonderful surprise.
Greg and his family were the consummate hosts. Notably, the bridge construction was not a problem for us at all.
Overall, a wonderful property and I hope we have the chance to stay there again!
I booked this home to plan a little getaway for New Year's Eve. When I saw the pictures online, I instantly fell in love. But then, I read the reviews and had some concerns. So, I emailed the owner, Greg, with a MILLION questions, who then responded right away and eased all my fears. The day I showed up to the home, it exceeded all my expectations. Greg's home is BEYOND lovely (I wish it was my home). It's clean, spacious, right in front of the canal, the beds are super comfy, and it has everything you need!
The first night we got pizza delivered by Johnny's New York Pizza (I think that was the name) and it was AMAZING. Then the next morning, went for a walk around the neighborhood (thank you Starbucks for being everywhere). It rained while we were there and there was some construction but it wasn't a big deal. We stayed indoors most of the time and had a great time. Greg also called the second day to make sure everything was okay and running smoothly, which I thought was really nice.
The only minor downside I experienced was that the garbage disposal wasn't working properly, so that made doing the dishes a little difficult, but still not a huge deal.
All in all, staying here made my NYE amazing and I can't wait to stay here again!
I booked this home for a New Year's Getaway and it was everything I could hope for and more! The home was so exceptionally beautiful and spacious. Greg, the host, was amazing and would check in to make sure everything was okay. There was some construction going on around the neighborhood but it wasn't a major hindrance.
The only thing is that the garbage disposal didn't properly work so doing the dishes was difficult, but it wasn't a major issue.
All in all, I would definitely stay here again! Everything was perfect!
Nice home for our family to enjoy. Location good close to town!
Great place, great host and wonderful time. We had a party of 7 and the house fit us well.
Island living at its best! Enjoy a stroll on the Island, take the Ferry to the fun zone amusement park, have a banana split ice cream cone, and relax. Plenty of beautiful sunsets every day, boat parades, great restaurants, world-class shopping, adventure sports and biking and more awaits your Summer holiday on Balboa Island!
