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.
*** purchased this House in 1983
Why *** chose Balboa Island
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!

Just returned home from our spring break stay in Balboa Island. Cannot say enough great things about the cottage, the location and the area in general. We traveled with our two kids and we all adored Kimberly's beach cottage, just steps from the water. The cottage was beyond clean and equipped with everything you could possibly need for a beach vacation...and more. There was even a lovely welcome basket for us upon arrival! Truly hoping we can visit again in the near future!
Perfect getaway to Balboa
Our family of four had a great stay. The home was very well stocked, cozy and beds were very comfortable. Overall would definitely recommend!
Wonderful Cottage Perfectly Located
This comfortable, well appointed cottage on Diamond St. is a stones throw from the water on the desirable west side of the Island. Just a few blocks from both the ferry and town it was the perfect get away for us. We enjoyed a walk around the island or bike ride over to the Balboa Peninsula each day, wine on the small beach 50 years from the house early in the evening and relaxing in front of the glorious fire at night. We highly recommend this VRBO for couples or small families looking to enjoy the Island with the right balance of privacy, and access to everything Balboa has to offer. Kimberly's hospitality and eye for detail is exceptional.
Great location, perfect family get away!
The effort that went into making our stay enjoyable was very impressive. The personal touch (gift basket, Crayons) and attention to detail (multiple phone charging outlets, beach toys, amenities, functionality) was second to none. I look forward to coming back for future Balboa vacations. Thanks for a memorable time for me, my wife, and two young girls. We were sad to leave!
Perfect location - cozy and comfortable!
We took a family vacation at the end of December to SoCal and chose Balboa island as our spot. This home was perfectly sized for a family of 4 which includes girls ages 3 and 7. Our favorite things included the fireplace, garage access, bikes included, location to walking path around island and distance to ferry. My girls couldn’t get enough of the small beach at the end of the street. The sand toys in the garage certainly came in handy!! The owner was exceptional!! She helped us find a babysitter one night so we could go to a dinner with some friends. I would 100% rent this home again and again and again. It really felt like our home away from home.
Thank you for taking your time to write such a nice review. So glad you and your family had a memorable time at Balboa Island. You were wonderful guests and I look forward to your return!
Adorable, clean cottage with wonderful amenities in the perfect location
We absolutely loved staying at this adorable cottage on Balboa Island. Not only was it roomy, clean, bright, with some awesome amenities, but the location cannot be beat. You are close to everything in Balboa and a ferry ride away from enjoying Balboa Peninsula. The owner was quick to respond to all our questions and needs and very helpful. We will definitely be back.
Thank you for taking your time to write such a nice review. You were wonderful guests and I look forward to your return!
