Perfect for Family Celebrations

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Agate home & back unit for a week in June 2016 for my Father's 80th Birthday. My parents rented the home (different owner) on the corner - so it was like we had a 'family compound'. I preferred our home to the neighbors ... we enjoyed the upgraded kitchen appliances, larger living room with plenty of seating for the family to lounge around and bedroom configurations. The beds and bedding were comfy and cozy.

Baby / Toddler: We appreciated the baby items, stroller, pack n' play and highchair. The Beach toys were a hit.

Dining: The outdoor dining table in the front for the morning & lunch, the table in the back perfect for dinner and the kitchen table in the house roomy.

Parking: Having the two-car garage and the carport was essential as parking on the street can be difficult.

Location: Is great, a block from the Ferry, walking distance to Marine Ave. (the main street on the island). Away from the traffic near Marine Ave. Close to the Beach - great for walking.

Activities: We did Stand-up Paddle Board through "Island Paddleboard" on Marine Ave., they are very friendly and transported the boards to / from the beach.

The only negative which is not specific to this property but to the area in general is construction going on across the street and John Wayne airport, the airplanes begin flying at 7:00am - this is a Newport Beach issue. You actually get used to the airplane noise and construction will not go on forever. Even with these minor issues - we look forward to renting this home again in the near future.

I highly recommend this property and working with Stephanie was great, she responded in a timely manner to my inquiries, very friendly and professional.

If you can get on their calendar - rent this home - you will not be disappointed, you'll have a great time and don't forget the sunscreen!

Fun Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this house for a week in July. The main house and back house comfortably fit our extended family of 14 - ages 7 to 75. The main house kitchen and family room worked well as our main hub of activity. We were in walking distance from the ferry, and we were also close to the shoreline for fishing, swimming and paddle boarding. The house was clean and updated. We had everything we needed, and the owner's responded promptly when we requested more towels. Having a garage and extra parking space were extremely valuable on Balboa Island. We had a wonderful vacation and can't wait to come back here again!

Amazing Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this house for a week in July. It is perfectly located from the North Bay in one direction and the ferry to the pennisula in the other direction, just a few blocks from restaurants and shopping and was immaculate upon arrival! We loved the front patio! We had 8 adults and three kids and there was plenty of room for everyone. Loved that each bedroom had its own bathroom. The guest house was great for the teenagers in the group. We will definitely be back!

Magical vacation

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a Christmas family get together and am so thankful I found it. The group included eight adults and five little girls. There was plenty of room for everyone and lots and lots to do. We didn't even get close to doing all that was available for all age groups. The boat parade was the reason we went, but the whole island is a Christmas paradise during the season. Only when we were sadly leaving did we notice all the beach toys available in the garage. We just may have to rent it again in the summer. The owner was a delight to deal with, and the house was modern and immaculate.

A wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We came to your property with our grown children and grandchildren. It was so wonderful to have the space that your home affords. It gave is wonderful together time, yet allowed for rah of us to get away and have a a little privacy. The beds were all comfortable, furniture was decorated beautifully and the kitchens were well equipped for cooking family meals. The grandchildren loved all the board games, DVDs and beach toys your provided. We would love to make this an annual trip! Thanks again!
