Recent Balboa Island reviews
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!"

"We stayed here while our home was being remodeled. The owner is responsive and very accommodating. The home has a vintage feel and is equipped with everything you will need for a wonderful vacation. Everything is within walking distance."

"This cute bungalow was just the right space for me to call home for a week. After living in Newport Beach for 20 years, then moving to NC, this house was in the best location for me to revisit all the things I love about the area, see my friends and my grown kids. The owner is so hospitable and helpful! I brought my little dog along. There is an enclosed patio where she was able to hang out. This house has space for one car in the garage -- SO IMPORTANT because parking is a challenge on Balboa Island."

"Our family of 4 stayed at this wonderful home for 17 nights during the holidays and had a fabulous time! You can walk to everything, and never really get into a car unless you want to leave the island. The home was furnished with absolutely everything you could need. It felt as though we we in our own home for the holidays, rather than a cold, stark rental. Everything is clearly labeled- the lighting, the tv and stereo equipment. The rental process was very easy, absolutely no problems communicating with the owners. Thank you Shari for everything! We would stay again in a heartbeat!"
