About Todd Keller

We have been married for 28 years and have 4 wonderful children. Our son is 25 and our 3 girls are 22, 16 and 11.

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

4 PADDLE BOARDS AVAILABLE for use during your stay and are located behind the white gate in the alley. Also, the 4 Paddle Boards are meant for both units so please be considerate of how long you are using them.

Cute and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying here. The place was clean and was surprisingly quiet considering the location. The owners were easy to work with and responded right away when we had an issue. It's small, but it has everything you would want and it was great to be so close to the shops and restaurants. We will be back!

Friendly Balboa Island Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the cottage. There were three of us and we were quite comfortable but we can't see how this place could sleep 6. Everyone on the Island was super friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed the paddle boarding. Had a couple of issues: the frig wasn't working but we got it working after a few hours, everything else is to be expected in a popular vacation rental. We really appreciated how close the cottage is to the Main Street but be prepared for the noise from the next door bar and from people talking. It certainly didn't interfere with our sleep as the bar stopped playing music at 10 pm. I really appreciated how friendly everyone we met was. We would certainly stay here again.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay, it was a pleasure having you It sleeps 6 because There is a trundle bed under the bunkbeds that rolls out and the couch Folds out into a bed. I will talk to the owner of the Village Inn restaurant, the music is on the other side of the restaurant and should not be heard at all from our home. He is very conscious and considerate to his neighbors about any noise coming from his restaurant. And the paddle boards are a huge addition and we are so thankful to have them for you to use because they rent for $35 an hour each if you had to rent them. I hope we see you again in the future :).

Excellent family vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little cottage for a family vacation stay on the island. We had a total of 6 people (2 adults , 4 kids) staying on the bottom floor of this rental and it was just enough room to accommodate all of us. The owner is very responsive and accommodating. Having the paddle boards on hand is an amazing bonus for the property as the paddle board rentals in the area are about $35 for 2 hours. There were also a couple boogie boards to take to the beach and a scooter for the kids to ride. The kitchen did indeed come fully stocked and we were able to cook breakfast burritos in the mornings and grill out at night. It was an awesome vacation! Thanks Todd!

Super cute & convenient

  • 5 of 5

The place was exactly how it was described. It's been awhile since we've been in Cali and we forgot how small some beachside properties can be. Hey, the real living is outdoors. Our family of 5 fit perfectly. Our girls had the room with the bunk beds, our son put the trundle in the family living room and slept there. He did not want to use the futon. The place was clean and a short walk to everywhere (shops, dining and most importantly the Beach!). We enjoyed using the paddle boards a nice bonus. The ferry is cheap, $1, and so are bike rentals $10 for the day. We hosted a small get together one night. We had trouble accessing the internet but the owner was responsive and the problem solved. Great vacation home.

We ate at Wilma's (I believe that was the name) walking distance and Yummy!! Try their waffles with fresh strawberries. In the evening we went to both ice cream parlors both were good! The market on the corner is overpriced as to be expected but convenient. If you get a chance stop by the museum (walking distance) they have some interesting facts about Balboa Island and Newport.

Cute little beach house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed on the lower floor of the beach house, which is the ground floor. It is well cared for and decorated in relaxing beach colors. It is well stocked with towels, linens, and kitchen items. It is on quaint Balboa island about a block from the water to the west. Beaches are public there - they are small and on the bay. You can take the 5 min ferry ride to larger beaches on the ocean. Parking on Balboa island can be an issue on busy days. We didn't have any issues with noise from the restaurant next door in the evenings, but there can be some typical street noise. Overall, a great stay!
