Perfect family vacation rental.
"My family of 4 enjoyed this vacation rental for 9 days in March. Perfect for families! Literally a block to the sand/boardwalk and a playground on the sand (I can lay in the sand as they play in the waves and even if they wanted to play at the playground). You can hear the waves crashing from the bedrooms as you fall asleep. Easy walk to Newport pier one way or Balboa Pier the other way for restaurants and shops. Warm nights on rooftop deck sipping wine or beer as the kids sleep below. AMAZING!
Wake up, leisurely breakfast and coffee on the rooftop deck, walk to beach, come home for lunch, back out for afternoon session, come home for dinner, kids to bed, relax on rooftop deck. REPEAT!
Thank you Laurel and Lorraine."

"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!"

"The location of this house is it's best feature. Located right on the sand between both piers with the boardwalk right out front.
The house was roomy with a large living room that opens up to the fantastic porch area. This is where we spent the majority of our time. There was plenty of seating and tables and chairs to accommodate everyone in our party of 8+.
The house is not what I would consider a "luxury" home. The kitchen and bathrooms need updating, older tile, appliances and decor. Everything worked well just dated.
Jim was an amazing manager and made sure everything was great.
The house is walking distance to everything, you'll never need to use your car. We rented the bikes from the house and rode all over Newport and Balboa."
