Recent Balboa Peninsula reviews
Even better than it looks in the pictures!
"My parents, my husband and our 2 children stayed for a week between Christmas and New Years and could not have asked for a better place to stay. It is easily as comfortable and lovely as it looks in the photos. There is plenty of room (we had 6 around the dining table and could have fit 8 or 10 easily). This is a great section of the Peninsula as it is not as noisy as it is by the piers. Walks along the beach and the bay were easy, and there were plenty of beach toys and bikes in the garage as well. The house is well set up for beach living with minimal carpeting-a bonus when you have kids and pets and don't want to have to worry about spills. It was very helpful to have laundry facilities, as well as beach towels provided. The upstairs bedroom feels like a lovely retreat for a couple, while the kids stay downstairs with Grandma and Grandpa. Easy walking distance to the piers (depending on what you're used to walking) and parking wasn't bad since we were here in the winter. There is a nearby Elementary school playground-a nice bonus for families with children. Can easily recommend this for anyone."

"What a beautiful home! Comfortable, clean, well-furnished, and perfect for an individual, a mature couple’s destination or a quiet girl’s weekend. Bob and Louise were onsite to meet me when I arrived and make sure I was all set. The location is ideal in so many ways, close to the beach, shopping, and many restaurants. The kitchen is fully equipped with just about anything you can think of, and this made meal preparation at the condo very easy. Louise recommended a great fish market close by, Santa Monica Seafood on 17th Street just off of Newport Blvd., and they had an incredible selection of fresh fish. Having Pavillion’s just a couple of blocks away made for convenient grocery shopping. For dining out I enjoyed Harborside Restaurant near the Balboa Pier with friends who live close by, the calamari appetizer and halibut dinner entrée were both excellent. There is so much to compliment with the neighborhood being very quiet, being on the water created an incredible ambiance unlike any other, and having a place to park the car was priceless. Thank you, Bob and Louise!"

"LOVE, LOVE, LOVED THIS ONE. Directly across the beach, LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION, with a great lay out, plenty of supplies, well equipped kitchen, and all tile was great for kids / sand. Landlord was fantastic, and helpful, not that we needed anything, but was there if we did. Beach toys too. We stayed downstairs and can’t wait to rent both units next summer and take the whole family."
