Recent Balboa Island reviews

  • Spectacular

    "From my first contact with the owner, she was most kind and accommodating. As others have written, she was available at all times and didn't hesitate to help or make suggestions. The cottage is spectacular.... MUCH more than the photos show. Comfortable times ten. Beautifully decorated. In a perfect location. As someone who likes to cook, I remarked several times about how well the kitchen was equipped. I have a vrbo-listed home and THIS is the kind of review i want to read. And this is well deserved. You cannot go wrong spending a week or longer here.... I had never been to Balboa but quickly made friends. Most of all, enjoyed relaxing in this fabulous cottage. I live on an island in the Caribbean so it takes a lot to impress me... and this cottage and the people here certainly did. Thank you so much, K."

  • Happy Renter

    "This is a great place to stay. The house, while small, has a great layout and feels spacious. A very well stocked kitchen and nice patio. Beautiful tile and stained glass throughout the house. I highly recommend this rental and hope to stay here again."

  • 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!"

  • 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."
