Cozy Balboa Island Cottage that was so relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

We love Balboa Island!! Such a unique area of Orange county to bring the family. Walking the bayfront and riding bikes on the Ferry to the Beach front is so relaxing. This house is perfect for a small family that enjoys the cottage feel. Prime location on the Island. Newport Beach Vacation Properties is so friendly and makes the check in process so easy with the guest portal and automated system. We want to come back every year!! Thank you for the lovely memories!!

Reviewer Comments:

5 of us for 5 days including Thanksgiving dinner at the property. PROS *Great Location *Quaint comfortable house *Good water pressure in showers CONS *Needs more Blankets, Towels, and Pillows *The lighting is goofy. Switches are in weird places, a lot of the lamps don't work or the bulbs are out. It always felt a little too dark. **BIGGEST PRO = Working with Vikki at Newport Beach Vacation Properties. She was AMAZING and saved our vacation! Thanks for everything Vikki!!

Reviewer Comments:

This cottage was cute and comfortable. However there were some aspects that were not satisfactory. Some kitchen items were missing or broken, windows needed cleaning. Unable to use the barbecue as it needed a good cleaning. We felt that the place needed updating and newer furnishings. Zabrina was very helpful and gracious and took care of our requests promptly. Traffic on Park was constant and some times annoying. I would not request this location again.

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.*
