Perfect Balboa Island vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this home for a week in March. I've spent a lot of time at Balboa Island over the last 50 years and have rented quite a few homes. This was the nicest one we've stayed in. It is not your typical rental, which usually seems a little tired and worn. It was nicely decorated and everything was in great shape. Sheila met us when we arrived and showed us around the home. The beds were quite comfortable too. I'm trying to figure out when I can go back!

Christmas on Balboa Island 2015

  • 5 of 5

As we pack to leave we are so sad to go. This house was beyond our expectations!! I really worried that it was too good to be true from the photos and reviews. It is even better!! Comfy beds, tv's in every bedroom. Dinning table where we sat and laughed long after we finished dinner. It really is a home!! Balboa Island is a really special place. We walked every morning. Walked to the Main Street for dinner and shopping. We loved our Christmas vacation here and will be coming back!

SUPERB in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a 4 night stay in this gorgeous home... it's truly a "home" cozy! My sister and I spent hours combing the properties for the perfect place to bring my 88 yr old dad who lives in Chicago. This was far and away the most beautiful: top of the line renovation, just a few steps from the beach (and a bench that overlooks the harbor) as well as just a couple of blocks from town. The owners couldn't have been nicer and more thoughtful with the amenities provided. They were always available for questions ( we weren't familiar with the area)

We just loved the island! People couldn't have been friendlier and so much to do in and around the area! It was such a successful trip, we hope to return soon!

A Lovely Spot for Spending Time with Family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4 nights with our two adult children (young 20's) and their spouses. The home is recently renovated, lovely, well equipped, and has ample space inside and outside for spending quality time with family. It is also very conveniently located, with only a short walk to a local restaurants, a small store with some grocery items, and other shops. The owner is very responsive and helpful. We would love to stay here again if the opportunity arises.

Perfect Home for a Serene retreat

  • 5 of 5

Sight unseen, we selected this home as a family getaway after a family wedding in Los Angeles. It provided exactly the serene, restful, and relaxing experienced we envisioned and sought. The home is beautifully decorated, well-equipped, and perfectly located. The owner was responsive and generous. The extensive kitchen provisions, beach equipment, bikes, kayaks, boogie boards, high chair, port-a-crib and more made the home so convenient for us. I hope we can visit again and this time include the new bride and groom!
