About Kimberly Herold

This property has been in our family for over 30 years. We have recently completed an interior remodel of the kitchen and bathroom. This historical beach cottage was built in 1923. The cottage retains its original charm while having all of the luxuries of modern day living.

Kimberly Herold purchased this house in 1983

Why Kimberly Herold chose Newport Beach and Balboa Island Area

Beach Side cottage is within steps of the South Bayfront beach, 5 blocks to the ferry, 5 blocks to the uptown village area, quiet and serene setting. The most coveted location of Balboa Island the 100 block of Diamond, just steps from the South Bayfront!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The home was perfect. Beautifully decorated Cape Cod style home. All new had everything we needed and was meticulous. We are particular about bedding and it was top of the line all white linens and towels. I did request more pillows for one bedroom (my wife thought it was excessive) but owner had them delivered right away.



Recommend an early morning walk to the darling main street for coffee and a grab pastries or donuts at Dad's. My wife could have stayed another week to shop at the great boutiques. Restaurants on Main street were great glad we could walk to them.



Super stay, thank you we will be back

Fabulous 5 star

This property was fabulous...exceptionally clean, well stocked. I felt very much at home at the same time on a wonderful retreat. The beds were very comfortable. The furnishings were gorgeous. My hope is to return again. Thank you

Great Place to Stay! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a week and we absolutely had the best time. The house was made available to us early and the owner even contacted me via phone and email to let me know! The cottage has a great layout and maximizes the space. Our boys each had their own room and the master is tucked away. The house was VERY clean and had the amenities we needed. The house appears to be newly renovated and was just spot on. We have stayed on Balboa Island before and this house exceeded our expectations compared to the last place we stayed at. It was clean, bright and the location was perfect (few houses away from the beach) and walking distance to main street.

We love Balboa Island and the surrounding area and will definitely come back to this house. We highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a rental on Balboa Island. Not only a great house but the owner was very attentive and responds super quick.

A Wonderful Gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a spectacular "place" with all the amenities/conveniences to enjoy the Beach/Activities, Shopping, and Restaurants at your fingertips. Excellent location - very close to the Boardwalk. Extremely clean, well-appointed and luxury-like Four Seasons style, with a bright, comfy and cozy atmosphere. Front/back patios, and BBQ grill - great place to relax! Garage and laundry access are included - a huge plus for extended stays. The owner is very accommodating, extremely attentive with a very quick response time. We highly recommend this VRBO to escape the "Cold Winter" or a fabulous "Summer" get away! We cannot wait to return for another fantastic stay in Paradise!

WOW!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a week and didn't want to leave! It was perfect in every way! The house was spotless and beautifully decorated, was stocked with every possible thing we might need and was so "homey". The location is wonderful with just a few steps to the waterfront and a short stroll to Marine Ave. for shopping. The owner was very kind and took care of every detail possible. We will be back in 2016!!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many different houses on Balboa Island over the years. This is one of the best. The location was perfect and the inside of the home was bright, cheerful and comfortable. Everything is new and up to date. Plus, the house is fully stocked with every imaginable item. The owners are kind and thoughtful. They respond immediately to questions. We will stay here again.
