Balboa Island house description

Balboa Island is one of the premium vacation spots in the country. If you're going to vacation at the best, why not stay at the best? This newly remodeled home is perhaps the ideal location on the island. Just feet away from the water and only three houses from the main street makes picking something up from the shops easier than any other spot on the island.

It's on the only beachfront without boat tie ups, completely wide open for better beach enjoyment and absolutely breathtaking views. Located on the South Bay Front provides perfect sun exposure, gentle warm breezes and a direct view of the main inlet harbor.

The house is 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, and a great room with a fantastic entertainment center. In the living room there is a 46 inch HD flat screen television with Direct TV, VHS and DVD Player.

The Master bedroom has a 42 inch HD flat screen television with Direct TV. The other bedrooms have 23 inch HD flat screen televisions with Direct TV. The house sleeps 6 comfortably. Internet access is also available with a modem for Ethernet connection as well as Wi-Fi access.

                House was perfect. Clean and comfortable. Owner was great to work with and flexible. The patio is a great gathering spot and we all spent alot of time out there. The kitchen was well stocked with everything need to cook a turkey dinner (we did). We did a lot of entertaining and did not want for anything. Good water pressure and the washer/dryer was fabulous. Four of us stayed there. We also relaxed in the living room, comfortable and roomy. Internet worked and we will rent this house again. Best family spot ever. We could see boat parade, do stand up paddle board and walk to restaurants.

                The owner of this house is friendly, easy to deal with and the layout of the home is nice. The rental is in a great location. The downside is that there is an extremely strong urine/ pet odor (coming from the couch). The smell from the couch made me not want to spend much time in the home. It made the place feel dirty and we didn't want to spend much time inside the home. I just couldn't get comfortable and it bothered my family the whole time we were there as it permeated the house. That is the only reason I wouldn't rent this home again. If they got a new couch (which would have to be done as the couch is ruined) I would totally stay there again!! I hope the owner reads this and takes care of the problem. It could be a 5 star rental. I only wish someone had mentioned this in the comments before we stayed there.

                Manager response: As the owner I don't understand this complaint about the urine smell in the couch. First of all it took eight months for this review to be submitted. There have been 15 renters sense they rented and not one complaint about this matter. My family and I have been there a total of 6 weeks also since they rented and no problems with the smell or the couch. I have professional cleaners clean after ever renter and they are instructed to make me aware of any such problems. There has not been one reported by them. I don't understand the motive for this negative review and please any possible renters please disregard this review because it is not true.

                This house is FANTASTIC! It is right on the bay. I have 2 boys that lived outside our front door all week. The patio is great. The rooms are nice size and you have parking. The location you can't beat. We loved just sitting outside and looking at the amazing view. This house is very kid friendly and we loved all the neighbors. We had a wonderful week with family and friends. Hoping to rent this place for next summer. Wonderful memories.

                We decided to look into a vacation rental instead of staying in a hotel when we were in Newport Beach for a wedding. This property was perfect for my husband and I with our 2 adult daughters and their husbands. The house was wonderful. Very clean and well equiped. Everything that you needed. The location was fantastic...just a couple of short blocks to all the shops and restuarants and just a few blocks down the walkway to the ferry which takes you to the fun zone. The view from the living room and front patio was specatular. Being right on the walkway, we had lots of fun watching people with dogs and yachts cruising by. We loved this property and the owner was wonderful to work with. We will definately stay here again on future visits to the area.

                We had such a wonderful time during our stay. The house is well equipped, well maintained and very comfortable, but the best feature by far is the location!! We lived on the front patio watching people and dogs walk by and the yachts cruise by orbit own and night!! The proximity to shopping and dining could not have been better and the relaxed lifestyle was just what we all needed. We will definitely be back next year without a doubt!!

                We stayed at this property for a week in April. The location was great. It was nice to have all of the shops and restaurants just a couple of blocks away. The house was clean and comfortable--well-stocked kitchen, new washer and dryer, and plenty of clean towels and sheets. We had two children under 4, and they loved the beach, saying hello to all the dogs walking by, and playing with the nice stock of beach toys and sidewalk chalk that the owner had on hand. The owner was very helpful providing information about the property and surrounding area and was very professional in establishing the rental agreement etc.

                We were fortunate to spend a month here. The home was great for us and convenient to our daughter who lives nearby. Walking distance to everything, including coffee at Hersheys. This was our second month on Balboa and this place fills the needs for anything you want in a great, relaxing vacation. Everything was as advertised. Outside was a waterfront patio with bbq and comfortable furniture. Inside was a well equipped kitchen and a very efficient and cozy fireplace in the great room to knock the chill of Newport Bay off in the evenings while watching tv on on a large flat screen. Don was very good answering our questions before we arrived and very courteous after we arrived. We will definitely be back soon.

                My family of 6 stayed at the house this summer and we had a WONDERFUL time. The house is exactly "as stated" and all pictures are accurate. I would also add that their is a great BBQ and beach toys for children. Don even went as far as to lend us a port-a-crib (his grandchildren's) and give us a fantastic "review book" of Balboa Island. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a getaway on the beach- also excellent for entertaining.

                This was our first stay at this beach house and I can't imagine renting any other place... I have been coming to Balboa Island since I was a child, and it just never changes. The location was amazing. Bay front, three houses from the main street, and about a 3 minute walk to the island market. Close to everything, including a beautiful walk to the ferry for easy crossing to the Newport Peninsula and beach. The house felt like it was ours! Totally complete with everything, well stocked, comfortable beds and furniture, lovely patio with table and chairs, and a great covered parking space in the back! Oh, and the neighbors on all sides and above were wonderful!!!

                What a great house and location for a family vacation, that included small grand kids. The house was clean and comfortable. Also being a single level was nice for small kids. The out door patio was roomy and a nice spot to watch all of the activity in the bay and the people walking or running by. The location was only a block from dining and shopping. The owner is a good guy and easy to rent from. We can't wait to stay here again.
