  • A Perfect Getaway

    "We love Balboa Island, especially the Grand Canal. We have stayed in many houses on the Grand Canal over the years, but this was our favorite. The kitchen and bathrooms are remodeled and beautiful and the living area is spacious and bright. John and Sue were very prompt when answering questions, and the on-site caretaker, Tom, was also a big help. We started our stand up paddling in the canal every day and took long walks several times a day. We never needed to get in our car. A perfect getaway!"

  • Lovely Island Vacation

    "We rented this wonderful historic beach home on the island this summer for the first time. It has a huge backyard that has a funky Hawaiian feel to it with palm trees, lemon and lime trees. The grill is big and new and there is a sand area for kids to play in while you barbecue and have fun. It was terrific for the 4th of July. We loved it. It has been well kept for an older home and everything is clean and the fans are fantastic and very quiet. We have been coming to the island for 50 years so we have a deep love for it. This home just fits the feel of the old Balboa. We will definitely be renting again because the price is right for this home which is just a couple of houses done from the north bay front beach. And situated a couple of streets over from the Main Street with its restaurants made it a perfect place. Especially when you have a craving for a balboa bar at night before walking the island. The owner is just great to work with."

  • Fabulous Week At The Beach

    "We stayed at this lovely HB property for a full but relaxing, very memorable week in July, 2014. The accommodations were perfect for me and my husband, my daughter, son-in-law, and our three lively grandsons. What surprised us the most was the quiet of the neighborhood. Even though July is high season, the area was peaceful both night and day. And the house itself is just beautiful; everything we needed and more. As others have mentioned, this house is even better than the pictures would indicate. Ellen took good care of us and was very attentive to make sure things were perfect. We would love to come back!"

  • BEST Vacation Rental EVER!!

    "This was our first all family Trip to California. While we were in California 10 days we only got to spend 4 days in Dana Point. We all hated to leave Villa Tortuga! The condo was absolutely beautiful and it was in the perfect location. We couldn't believe all of the ammenities- top notch, and Gus has thought of everything! (I really mean EVERYTHING! I expected things like beach towels and some equipment; but first aid kit, binoculars, pantry items? WOW!) We had breakfast on the airy deck and dinner in the spacious dining area. WiFi worked well and there were plenty of DVDs as well as books and magazines. Gus has all the information you need printed up and well organized. The beach is wonderful and just a short walk (or taxi ride) to the Ritz Carlton, where we attended a wedding. The location is also very close to the harbor and the Ocean Institute. We got to see some of the tall ships while we attended a reception there. Maybe I shouldn't say so many good things about this condo-- it might not be available next time we want to stay in Dana Point. Exceptional place, Gus. You really have a winner in Villa Tortuga."
