About Tony Balsa

I recently retired after 35 years in the fire service as a Captain. I have traveled all over the world with my wife. I love going to the ocean, it seems to call me there.

Tony Balsa purchased this house in 2010

Why Tony Balsa chose North Coast California

I have been diving in this area for 35 years and I always wanted to have a home here to stay extended periods. It is so dramatic and natural without too many people. There is wonderful fishing and diving within a short walk to the end of the driveway. It is so restful to go to sleep listening to the ocean waves in the distance and feeling cool ocean air surrounding you, waking up invigorated and ready to meet the day excited to explore the areas nearby.

What makes this house unique

The home spacious, clean, very comfortable and next to the ocean. There are many nearby sites to see like historic Fort Ross, two hundred years old next year, numerous parks, beaches, wineries and excellent restaurants. Very relaxing!

Kind of expensive , but we enjoyed it

  • 5 of 5

We loved that the owner had all kitchen stuff available, firewood for the 2 fire places, the sauna and hot tub ready.

It was expensive for one night but between 8 people it's ok if you split it.

Knowledgeable owner, and he sounded like a nice guy.

Beautiful house, Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

House was as advertised - spacious, clean, well-stocked. This house would be perfect for 2 couples or families, as there are 2 separate sections of the house. The views from the deck and end of the driveway are amazing. The owner was very responsive and contacted us before check in and after arrival to make sure all of our needs were met.

Great location, great house

  • 5 of 5

We visited the Timber Cove house for 3 nights and really enjoyed ourselves. The flanked house layout worked well for our two families, letting us each take a side. It also made it easy to have a "kids" side and "adults" side later in the evening, when they wanted to watch movies while we were cooking dinner.

The kitchen was well stocked with cooking gear and dishes--even a salad spinner and a crock pot. Each side had a small 4 person table and chairs, so we moved one set up to the main kitchen side so that we could eat all together; very easy. The house felt clean and cared for.

Proximity to Salt Point and the ocean was wonderful. Kids and adults alike enjoyed the sauna and hot tub; both were easy to operate with clear instructions. Tony the owner was great and easy to work with. At three days stay, we we'rent able to use the dryer which would have been nice for the wet towels. Fortunately, it wasn't raining during our visit!

My only "complaint" would be that we had to stand in the entryway to get a good WiFi signal; perhaps the router could be moved to a more central location to provide good service throughout the house. On the other hand, we didn't go for a coastal vacation to be parked on the internet so it wasn't really an issue!

We will definitely go back and probably stay even longer next time. Thanks, Tony!

Owner's Response: Hello Travis, Thank yo for your very nice review.I am glad that you enjoyed yourselves while staying at my Timber Cove House. With longer stays there is a washer and dryer in the garage. I hope you didn't have to stand in the hallway to use wi-fi. Once connected, accessing anywhere in the house or reconnecting has not been a problem. I will look into it. Please come back and stay another time Sincerely, Tony Balsa

Great spot on the coast

  • 4 of 5

It's work to get to, the road is good but curvy, but once your there,yes! Nice piece of coastline to follow, very scenic. Make sure you bring all your needs if cooking in, food that is. It's 40 min to a full size grocery store. There is great places to eat though near by. The hot tub was just like mine at home, very nice. We didn't use th sauna. Kitchen is full staffed so you can cook anything. We have a full 5 course thanksgiving dinner there. Plenty of hiking to be had but beware of ticks. Overall it was a great family vacation spot, thanks Tony!

This is a beautiful sparsely populated area with dramatic natural landscapes and crisp clean air to breath. The area is world reknown for the Abalone caught there and mushroom hunting in the fall. Fort Ross is a must-see as it was the only Russian settlement within the future United Staes/California boundary established in 1812. There are many festivals there throughout the year.
