The location was perfect, we only needed to use our vehicle once to go to dinner off the island. The bed were comfortable and the bathrooms great. The outside sitting area was perfect for us.

Reviewer Comments:

Pros: -Staying on Balboa Island (instead of the craziness of the peninsula) was a good fit for our family. -Ruby Street itself is the only street on the island to have a beach (on the bay) with calm water, roped off from boat traffic, that is great for little ones . -Marine Street (main street with shops and restaurants) is a 10 minute walk. In those 3 respects, the home is in a great location. -When a key wasn't left at check-in that we needed to get into the garage to access our vehicle) AND a doorknob fell off in our hand, making a closet inaccessible, NBVP took care of those things by the next morning. Cons: -The house was STIFLING. There is a barometer inside the house which consistently showed the living room being at or just over 80 degrees. This was the COOLEST part of the home. We opened every window and door we could, ran fans, and it was still very uncomfortable. I would not stay here in the summer if you have a baby or elderly person in your group. -The master bedroom had a very strong smell of mildew that never entirely went away, despite opening up the house everyday. It was particularly strong in the closet. (I suspect there was water damage at some point.) -201 Ruby is at the corner of Ruby and Park Ave. Park Ave. is one of the busiest streets on the island. You will have constant loud traffic/noise going past the house, (motorcycles, bikes, etc.) -There is construction (a new home build) right across the street. The work started just after 7 every weekday and on Saturday. We are early risers, so the noise didn't wake us, but the constant hammering and sawing was incredibly annoying. *The house has an insect problem, specifically, with roaches. I saw 5 roaches outside (near the grill and back door.) The night before we left, I found 2 live roaches INSIDE the house. Contacted property management 2x - no response.*

Reviewer Comments:

The property was advertised on AirBNB. According to the sight there was only a pin marked to indicate location. Only after the booking process was an address provided and the location was different. The property is located on a corner lot with traffic noise a factor. Also, a large home was under construction across the street, adding to noise level. There was also an infestation of flies and cockroaches. A fix it form was submitted to property manager with no response. Of my many years of if renting on the island, this was my least enjoyable.
