This block of Ruby Street is one of the most convenient and desirable. It has the only swim-only beach on island and is equally accessible to all amenities.
I loved the opportunity to stay here. Was the perfect place for our family weekend. Everything is within walking distance and the house was set up nicely with board games, Internet, TV, etc. Even a full kitchen if you wanted to cook! Thanks for everything made a dream proposal come true!
There was nothing to complain about this place. We arrived early and was able to put our stuff in the cottage which was already cleaned. Then we walked around the island. We had a dozen people over for dinner the first night to celebrate a birthday and had plenty of room and seating for everyone. The 4 bedrooms were comfortable and the two bathrooms were nice to have for 7 people staying there. Location was great with plenty of parking on the street which I was concerned about but turned out not to be a problem at all. I could not figure out how to get the tv guide on the cable to work but my wife quickly figured that out. None of us ever figured out how to get the Keurig Coffee Machine to work but it did not matter because my wife brought ours along for some reason. My only suggestion would be to have a little instruction sheet for the tv guide function to work and the coffee machine but the place really was perfect.
This was a great home for a girls get away. Great kitchen for cooking meals. It is 1 block to beach and a short walk to shops and restaurants on Marine Ave. We didn't need to use our car. Would book this property again.
This house was a great choice for our family. We had two little ones (4 and almost 2) and they had plenty of room to stretch out and play safely without worry of damaging furniture, or belongings. The kitchen was great well stocked and with little ones we ate dinners on site. Nothing fancy, a rustic beach house but very livable. Close proximity to downtown and morning walks to Starbucks. Great fit for us.
This house was perfect for our annual girl's getaway. There were 5 of us and having 4 bedrooms gave us all plenty of room to spread out. The beds were all very comfortable. The living room and dining area were the perfect size for us. The kitchen had everything you could need. The house is close enough to walk to all the shops, restaurants, the ferry and the ocean. We did not use our cars the whole time we were there. Balboa Island is not far from where we live but it felt like we were really far away. Very relaxing!
The four bedroom "Cottage" on Balboa Island more than met our family expectations. The property and the area lend to a very special family and/or friends get away.
