*****CURRENT***** 2015 Guest FIVE STAR Reviews of our captivating Beach Homes bestofbalboa by owner:

Anke greeted us upon arrival and went above and beyond with accommodations for my fiancé and me, to make our stay wonderful. She told us, "I like to make others happy," and she sure did! The living conditions of the home were superb and more than we could have asked for. We had a terrific weekend and are bummed to be back in our hot hometown! We would love to come back and stay again, thank you for such a great weekend, Anke!

I recently had the wonderful opportunity to stay in Hardy and Anke's beautiful home. I travel a lot on business and it was a breath of fresh air to not have to be in a stuffy hotel room. Anke and Hardy were amazing and made me feel so welcome. They are kind, hospitable and thoughtful. I had an amazing time! Thank you Anke and Hardy! See you soon!

Beautiful place to stay! Plenty of room for our party of 9. Literally a 2 minute walk to the Ferry just around the corner and then a few minutes walk to the beach. It's about a 10 minute walk to Marine Avenue where the shopping is fantastic! There's a little bakery that has the best lemon cookies! Perfectly located! Our hosts were absolutely wonderful! So welcoming and kind. We put good use to the paddle boards offered. I wouldn't change a thing and would definitely stay here again! Excellent experience, over expectation, very generous hospitality, and can't describe enough how much fun the whole family had. Host was very delicate, and responsive in all ways to make us feel like home, this is my favorite unique vacation and my first experience with A..., and I would give it 6 stars. Anke, I can't thank you enough!!

NOTE: Dock/Kayak/SUP's ... SAFELY operated by you and your Family---life vests furnished.

About Anke

Finally, after many years of traveling the US, Europe and Africa, we returned to live on this Paradise Island. We enjoy the socializing with friends, neighbors and the many happy visitors. The almost perfect weather is highlighted by fine shopping, dining, entertainment, sports; even a church and post office a few minute walk away.

Anke purchased this apartment in 1984

Why Anke chose Newport Beach

More than Vacation = 5 Star Fun!

Live like the locals!!! Your future home-away setting: + Bright, friendly and newly remodeled 1500+ SF Paradise In the highly desirable 100 block DIRECTLY on the water + Direct blue water view including the famous South Bay Front + We have never found a place like this traveling the world and never had as many family/friends desiring to visit here!

This Balboa Waterfront is not Expensive~~~

~~~ it is Priceless!

What makes this apartment unique

We fell in love with this charming home because:

* The relatively quiet yet always friendly blue water setting.

** Giant open beam living room flowing into a large dining area.

*** Water & Town views right on Board Walk to South Bay Front.

**** Your fun & leisure paradise just steps to any/all activities.

Balboa Island Charm with Modern Touches

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy we found this idyllic VRBO on the Grand Canal of Balboa Island. Being on the water is such a treat. We all loved waking up and seeing the soothing water and the boats go by from the big bay windows. Inside we found everything we needed and many thing we didn’t expect such as a comfortable sectional sofa with motorized foot rests; charming and unique decorations; an elevator to make moving in and out easy. Outside a large sunny dock sits over the bay with a fire table for cool evenings. Great shopping and restaurants are just around the corner, but the island is a pleasure to walk so be sure to take your time. Anke and Hart were so kind and responsive. We will be back!

A wonderful family holiday stay

  • 5 of 5

We gathered our family together (12 of us) from 3 continents and spent a memorable week on Balboa Island at this beautiful waterfront home. The house was lovely, well furnished and equipped with everything from paddle boards to big TVs, wi-fi, comfortable beds and quality linens. The huge washer/dryer saved us time and luggage space. The Owners were very helpful and generous. We spent lots of time on the private dock, playing in the water with the grandkids, and having family BBQs on the rear deck. Parking is a challenge on Balboa but the owners provided a safe off street space for our use.. Thank you. We will highly recommend this house to friends and others looking for a very special experience in this beautiful area.

This home has it all: comfortable beds, elevator, beautifully furnished, canal view and just steps to the stores and restaurants. Anke and Hardy were great hosts and couldn't have been more accommodating. I would highly recommend this rental, you won't be sorry!

Anke & Hardy, thank you for sharing your lovely home, I had a wonderful 3 months on Balboa. My children enjoyed visiting and we all thank you for your hospitality.

Lovely home on the Grand Canal

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts, Hart and Anke, could not have been more accommodating. They have decorated this home beautifully - from the bedding to the furniture. Comfortable and elegant. And the elevator was fantastic for my three aunts in their 80s and 90s. Great location, great view, great vibe! Thank you!!
