About Todd Keller

We have been married for 29 years and have 4 wonderful children. Our son is 26 and our 3 girls are 23, 17 and 12.

Todd Keller purchased this house in 2012

Why Todd Keller chose Newport Beach

We have been going to Balboa Island for most of our adult life and fell in love with the uniqueness and magic of the Island. 1305 is right at the heart of all the shopping and restaurants that the Island has to offer. The Island truly gives you a small town feel and allows you to get away from all the business of everyday life. Yet, it is just 30 minutes away from just about everything you could do in Southern California. From Disneyland to Fashion Island, etc.

What makes this house unique

A) 1 CAR GARAGE

B) 4 PADDLE BOARDS ARE AVAILABLE for use during your stay

Wonderfully quaint. Pretty colors. Comfortable beds upstairs.

  • 5 of 5

Older style home with charm. The family loved walking to the ice cream shop and other stores. The beach was still white sand - even though it's in the bay (without crashing waves). Very close from house to that beach and the walking path.

Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

Thank You Todd and Shannon! The house was a great weekend getaway for my family.

Close to the beach, walkable to shopping stores and market. Although parking on the street was not easy but we managed. I would recommend this house.

Garage door has no lock, feels unsafe.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that you felt unsafe, I wish you would've asked me about that the Garage door during your stay because it absolutely has a lock on it. The little key on the keychain is what Locks and unlocks it. Also, Balboa Island is one of the safest vacation spots in Southern California.

Great Place!

I stayed here this last weekend with 10 girlfriends for my bachelorette weekend. Overall I have nothing bad to say about the place! It was easy to find and a great location. The house is adorable too! I would definitely recommend it and stay here again!

Comfortable stay.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the comfortable, nice place. Great location and wonderful sleeping accommodations. We enjoyed the Amazon prime movie selections! The dryer didn't dry well so laundry was tough. There was an awful smell in the kitchen that I think was coming from under the hood of the stove. If those things were fixed, it would have been perfect. We hope to rebook next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review, it was a pleasure having you at our house. I will get somebody out to clean the dryer Vent and also get a new hood for the stove. The current hood is probably original and it is time for a new one. :)

Had family visiting from Texas and needed something that slept 10 (4 adults 6 children). This was the perfect house, not only was it a beautifully furnished house more importantly it fit us all perfectly. Everything was conveniently located. Walking distance to the beach. Awesome experience !!! Thank you
