Recent Balboa Island reviews

  • 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."

  • Balboa Island Charmer

    "We stayed for a week with our adult son, two granddaughters, and two of their friends. It was very comfortable - enough room for everyone. Comfortable in all ways and had many amenities which added to our enjoyment."

  • Fabulous Home, Perfect Location

    "This is a really lovely home. The top floor of the home is the accommodation. The well decorated and luxuriously appointed sitting room/dining/kitchen are tastefully furnished with quality fittings and a lovely open fire. The bedrooms are spacious, with very comfortable beds - all beautifully decorated and very clean. The bathrooms are spacious and have top quality fittings. There is a large clean garage. Outside the front veranda is a lovely quiet place to sit. The home is about 4 houses from the beach and 1 minute walk to the ferry. Our family of 7 stayed for 3 weeks, and could not have been happier or more comfortable. The home is very is clean and very well cared for. It's on the quiet end of the island and it's peaceful, there's literally no noise after 9pm. Steve the owner is a joy to deal with. Prompt, honest, courteous and thoughtful. We needed a little extra attention with our arrival and Steve was quick to help us, when others weren't. We will definitely return."

  • 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!"
