Another Perfect Vacation
"There is just something about this house! We rented this house for a second time and the minute I walked in the door I felt like I was on vacation. The house truly feels like a beach cottage and the owners have thought of everything. The kitchen is well stocked, the beds very comfortable, the towels are plentiful and there are plenty of bikes, surfboards, beach chairs and toys. We love the short walk to the beach or Main Street and the short drive to Disney. We have three children and the house was very comfortable for us. A soft ocean breeze is always blowing through the house and it is a very peaceful neighborhood. The beach is a perfect for a family and we enjoy watching all the surfers. If you get a chance to enjoy this home - do it! It is well worth it and I am sure we will be back!"

"This house is in the best spot on Balboa Island. The view of the bay from the patio is spectacular and having a large patio table was a bonus. My husband and I stayed here with our 20 and 19 year old kids. We rented paddle boards that were delivered right to the water in front of us. We also rented a Duffy boat and kept pulling it up on shore in front of the house to get more provisions. We barbequed meals and enjoyed them on the patio and also walked the 1 block to eat at many of the restaurants on Marine Ave. The house can use some updates and minor repairs, but the location and view make it a great place to stay."

"I just returned from a 2 week stay. I didn't want to leave this darling cottage! The new pergola on the patio adds a secluded place to spend afternoons with a good book or glass of wine. Loved the closeness to Seal Beach and the Pier. A 4 minute walk took me to the charming downtown which is complete with shopping, casual dining and great coffee shops. The friendly residents greet everyone on the street and I chatted with many of them! I loved walking everywhere, including to the midtown green park with benches and a picnic area. The beach bicycle was great for long and short rides as well which was challenging at first ;-)) ! There are beach chairs, umbrellas and kites included. Friends visited me from the "desert" (Palm Springs and Indio). They all fell in love with the town and plan on returning to vacation. I hope to return to this special cottage soon!"

"Arrived late at the property due to hold ups at the airport and Carhire. We were met by Beverley the property manager who showed us round the accommodation and told us where to find a supermarket etc -very helpful lady. The property was very clean, comfortable and the outside dining area was fantastic. The lake setting is superb.This was an ideal base for us to explore the theme parks and shopping malls from! My girls loved the fact that the property was right next door to the communal pool. One word of caution -the pool contained a lot of chlorine and if you have blonde hair as one of my daughters does, wear a swim hat as her hair turned a bit green! She didn't mind though and it has washed out.
We didn't meet Carol the owner but had no problems sorting out the booking etc. We would all thoroughly recommend this property and feel it thoroughly deserves a 5 star rating."
