Lovely, charming, peaceful home.
We had such a perfect weekend. Home away from home. Clean, well appointed, charming, comfortable. We’ll be back.
We live locally, but needed a quick get-a-away and love Balboa Island. This Island Cottage was perfect with the 4 bedrooms for our family. Super close to main Balboa and the ferry as well. Great neighborhood. Had everything we needed. There is some updating it could use, but it really didn't matter to us as it was comfy and perfect for us. Thank you for a great time with the family.
Great location! Kitchen was gorgeous and well stocked with utensils/pots and pans! Thank you!

Great cottage! Perfect for our family of three generations!
