Recent Balboa Island reviews

  • Wonderful relaxing setting on a special little "island"

    "While February is supposed to be the "off season" and rainy time in southern California, we spent 28 glorious, sunny, warm and wonderful days at this waterfront/beachfront cabin on Balboa Island. While it can surely use some "updating" especially in the bedrooms and bathrooms, that was a small price to pay for the BEST LOCATION on Balboa island. It is a 3 minute walk to "town" and located right on the walkway which surrounds the island. Nothing could have been better. The neighbors are even terrific and the rental people were responsive and helpful as well."

  • 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."

  • A great place to stay.

    "My wife and I have travelled from England two years running, and have booked again. Balboa Island is unique, away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. The apartment is well cared for, providing clean, bright and relaxing accommodation. We spent many happy hours sitting on the sunny balcony watching the humming birds. Many delightful shops and restaurants are within an easy stroll."

  • 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!"
