Property description

This charming and comfortable waterfront Grand Canal cottage is a perfect example of the Balboa Island lifestyle at its best.

Located on Balboa's quiet 'Little Island,' this single family home is on the boardwalk, just steps away from the bridge to Balboa Island's quaint Marine Avenue with access to shops, groceries and restaurants.

This single story home is clean and comfortable with all of the modern technologies, including flat screen HDTV, wireless internet access and IPod/MP3 player.

The eat-in kitchen has updated appliances, including a dishwasher and microwave. The large waterfront patio offers a gas barbeque for outdoor dining.

For water lovers, the home has a private dock for easy access to the bay for fishing, swimming and kayaking. With waiver, the rental includes access to two single kayaks and four bikes.

Bed linens and towels are also included, as well as access to a washer and dryer for added convenience. Onsite parking is available in an attached garage (approximately 11 feet by 16 feet parking area) with automatic garage door opener.

Enjoy walking, shopping and multiple dining options, or take the Balboa Island Ferry to the peninsula and visit the beautiful Pacific Ocean.

Note: our monthly rental rate is for 30 days, which is our maximum rental period.

The property is only 15 minutes away from Santa Ana/Orange County airport and 45 minutes south of Los Angeles International Airport.
