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

Perfect beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at Kimberly's place on Balboa Island. They place is in a great location — walkable to restaurants and shops as well as the ferry to the beach. Inside, the place looks exactly like the photos, really beautiful. Although there is only one bathroom, it's a really nice one with a great shower and water pressure, as well as stocked with plenty of towels and toiletries. We arrived early on our first day and Kimberly allowed us to check in and get settled, which was awesome! Thank you for being such an awesome host!

Delightful!

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend the beach cottage. My family loved it. The location is perfect for a walk around the island, a walk into the town or close proximity to the ferry to Newport Beach. The owner was so accommodating and adds the little touches to make sure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. We just can't say enough good things about our experience as it past our expectations. It was my first time using Home Away and everything was handled professionally and to our satisfaction. The owner was a text away if we needed anything. We highly recommend this property. You will love it.

Beach Cottage Home ~ Steps to the South Bay Front Beach

  • 5 of 5

This Cottage home is perfect! Well appointed, beautifully maintained, complete with everything one might need, upscale. The location is wonderful!, three doors from the water, so relaxing to sit on the front porch and watch the boats go by. We enjoyed the BBQ in the patio as well. We cant say enough about how enjoyable this home is!!! The hostess is very professional and responsive, a joy to work with. This is definitely our new destination on Balboa Island.

In love with this Balboa Island Gem

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (along with our two children aged 6 and 10 years) absolutely loved our 3 night stay at this gorgeous beach cottage. We only wish we could have stayed longer ! The home comes with everything you could possibly need (and then some). In addition to its cosy yet fashionable decor, the best part is its location on the island. Just a 5 to 10 minute stroll in each direction to either quaint village main street or Balboa ferry that takes you across to Newport Beach. We loved our afternoons watching the kids play frisbie in the quiet street facing the bayfront whilst we enjoyed our gin and tonics relaxing on the front porch. Thanks Kimberely for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home. Hopefully we will be back again one day.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. I agree the street is very quiet within walking distance of numerous restaurants, and Marine Avenue. The beach in front of the home is the perfect place to watch the evening sunsets. You were wonderful guests and I look forward to your families return!

LOVED this rental!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! It is a beautiful home with so much included! We sat out front many evenings, and walked along the bay every day. Just beautiful! It's a quiet neighborhood with easy parking. We would highly recommend this - there's nothing negative to say!

Absolutely perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't agree more with all of the reviews on this amazing Balboa beach cottage! The location is perfect, steps away from the beach on the quiet side of the island, and just a short walk to the ferry and shopping. The house is so well maintained, clean and stocked with everything you'll need for your beach week...chairs, towels, toys, boogie boards, umbrellas and even a wagon to pull it all in. Kimberly's attention to detail and kindness in helping with our trip were second to none. We'd highly recommend this property!
