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."

  • 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."

  • 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."
