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!"

"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!"

"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."
