  • Perfect Beach Cottage on Balboas Island

    "Our stay at this water front home was perfect for my husband and I. We loved being on the canal and close to the bridge to walk over to all the restaurants and shops. We spent most of our afternoons sitting on the very large patio with a glass of wine watching the sun going down. We really enjoyed using the kayaks right off the dock. We used the bikes and took the ferry over to the ocean board walk and biked for miles. This beach home is equipped with everything you would need for a vacation, including a washer and dryer and garage. I loved the decor showing what Balboa Island was like in the 20's. We have been coming to Balboa Island for many years, as we used to live in the Newport Beach area. Renting on Balboa Island is one of our favorite vacations, and this was the best home we have rented on the Island!"

  • The ideal Rental

    "My two adult daughters & I spent six days at this beautiful house. While the photos are accurate, experiencing this beautiful home & location in person far exceed them. A mere two block walk to Starbucks?? Oh yes, a wonderful bakery just steps before Starbucks? The neighbors & people out walking were so very friendly - as were the various merchants of the local stores/shops. This was far better than any expectations any of us had - plan to return one of these fine days!!!"

  • Best Family time ever!

    "I had the pleasure of staying in this charmer for the month of October. I lived on Little Balboa back in the 80's and this opportunity was a real homecoming. The place was just what I expected from the photos and more. For the first week my 4 sisters came and we had the most amazing time. We walked the little island every morning and evening, what a treat. My husband, daughter and son also joined me during my stay and I was able to share with them my memories growing up. Catching the ferry, renting a Duffy for a harbor cruise, shopping and watching the sunsets. From the front deck you can catch the sunrise and sunset, listen to the waves and sealions. Jimmy who lives downstairs was so kind and let us use bikes and kayaks. The off street parking place was much appreciated. Many of the island houses were decorated for halloween "amazing". I can just imagine how they do it up for Christmas. I would definitely rent here again."
