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!

Great Sonoma coast spot

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 3 nights at this spot. Just a really nice location on the beach side of 1. The house is big -- kind of like 2 houses, separated by a coat room. Good layout if you have kids.

Lovely views, thoughtful host

  • 4 of 5

Tony was easy to reach and very helpful. The fridge is well-stocked with condiments :) and the views are lovely. It's a bit hard to hike down to the beach unless the tide is low and you're adventurous, but we also made it to some wonderful beaches nearby for tidepooling. The sauna was a special treat!

Wonderful place in beautiful nature

  • 5 of 5

It's a great fully equipped house (although everything is a little bit older but working). The hot tub is awesome and the surrounding nature is just very beautiful. Tony is very friendly!

Thanksgiving at Timber Cove

  • 5 of 5

Our family has spent Thanksgiving the last five years in the Jenner area. The last two years at Tony's place. After dealing with slow traffic due to commuter and holiday timing, it was special to arrive to a preheated hot tub. The layout of the home works well for our five adults and to grandchildren. The home is well set up for our traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Great sunsets and plenty of uncrowded beaches. For the price, this is the best place in the area that we have found. I highly recommend this location.

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.
