Darling cottage! Fully equipped and a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The "twenty something " kids loved all the access to the water and used the kayaks and paddle boards extensively. The cottage is very comfortable and didn't lack anything. We enjoyed the proximity to Marine and all the shops and restaurants. Once we parked our car, we didn't use it again until the day we left. The ferry was a short walk and we went back and forth to the beach frequently. A very relaxing week in a very relaxing environment!!! We were sorry to leave.

We had an amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

The little kids swam and played in the safety of the canal while we watched from the deck. They wrote their names in sand on the sea wall and pet every dog that passed their way. The older kids stayed up late and played board games in the front room whiles the rest of us slept soundly. Everyone got to spend time with Dad. It was an excellent trip. Thanks.

Great 3-bedroom house on the Grand Canal

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in this home located on the Grand Canal in Balboa. It was clean and in good shape. It had a fully-stocked kitchen, and some extras that made the stay more enjoyable for our kids including 2 paddle boards, 3 kayaks and bikes. The access to the water from the private dock was great, and we enjoyed eating meals on the back patio facing the canal. We would definitely stay here again.

This was my fourth stay and it was grand as always. Everything we need was available, the bedding and and beds top notch, air-condition made sleeping a dream. Close to all the actitives, grandchildren had a blast and slept well at night.
