Recent Balboa Peninsula reviews
"We recently took a "staycation" at this lovely gem and as the other reviews stated--it is far better than the pictures show! We were a family of five with three kids aged 9-12. They were in love with the window seats and rooftop deck plus all the games they were able to play since we were having a "no electronic" weekend. There is a baby beach on the bay side which was perfect for a relaxing day and picnic with the kids. It is charming and spacious and close to everything. We love Newport Beach and have stayed there many times, but this is definitely a favorite! Matt is accommodating and wonderful and we will be back!!"

"This cute little beach house exceeded our expectations in every way! We found it a tremendous value considering the location and amenities. My husband and I grew up in Orange County and were looking for a place we could have family and friends over while we were on vacation with our two sons. The living room had plenty of comfy seating, the kitchen well equipped, and the patio was perfect for laughter and grilling. The house was clean and the beds comfy. Having a garage to park in eliminated the stress of finding street parking (it is a hunt!) and we came and went as we pleased. We used the beach chairs and boogie boards provided; the beach is just a short walk across Balboa Blvd. The Balboa Fun Zone is nearby as well, close enough to walk to but far enough you don't get noise and foot traffic in front of the home. We loved waking over there for a sweet treat, ferris wheel ride, and arcade games! Margaret, the owner, was very pleasant and helpful. I added this property to my VRBO favorites, and look forward to staying there again!"

"Loved how close and convenient the house was to beach and store. Also loved that fact that we could clean ourselves to keep cost low. The only negative I would say was that the pull out coach was very uncomfortable. The furniture is a bit beat up and old, but overall a great beach house."

"My granddaughters, ages 10 and 11, and I loved this upper unit, the sunset was awesome to see from this view! The unit is very well kept and had everything we needed. The location is great with shops very close by to rent anything from bikes to body boards, which my granddaughters loved. There are shops for quick snacks and nice restaurants. The beach is within a few feet of the unit with a water station to rinse off the salt water and sand. The owner, Doug was great. I didn't meet him personally, but he called a few days before our arrival to explain everything we needed to know. We would love to stay here again!"
