Awesome Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent 7 weeks there, and it was perfect for us! Loved the easy living being a one story, and the owner was so accommodating to our needs. Having quite a few relatives in OC, the location was ideal in getting together with them. It was also convenient entertaining them as well in this home. So nice to walk to restaurants and church. We loved it!

We had the best vacation of our lives. This home was perfect for our family. It is in the perfect location on the little island and was only 1 block from the water and a couple blocks from downtown to all the shops, local market and everything else that makes balboa so special. The home was incredibly clean and well kept. It has flat screen tv's 2 perfect sitting rooms and an incredibly nice master bathroom. Our kids loved their room as well that had 2 twin beds. We can't wait to come back next year!
