Recent Balboa Peninsula reviews
Perfect in everyway! Amazing home! Amazing location!
"We recently rented this home for our family vacation to Newport Beach. The home was beautiful, clean, large and in the perfect location. We walked to the beach, walked up and down Balboa, the boardwalk, and watched the sunset each night from the third floor balcony. The home is perfectly layed out, with tons of room and bathrooms to accomidate our large family. The kitchen is large and perfect for family meals and entertaining. Each person in our family said it was the best vacation ever and much better than staying in a hotel. We will definately be renting again and again!"

The house was perfect in every single way! It was even more beautiful than the photo.
"This house is pure luxury. We had such a fabulous time and the owner and property manager thought of pretty much everything to make our stay perfect. It was fully equipped with everything you could need in the kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms. There was also a ton of closet space for our clothes and suitcases. The house also included the use of four really nice bikes, beach chairs, beach toys, kayaks, etc. We went to Disneyland one day but decided to forgo the second day because we preferred to hang out at the house because it was so awesome. This was actually the kids’ idea.
The house sits in a prime location right at the water’s edge. The kids played pool, or with beach toys by the water when the tide was low, while the adults enjoyed the absolutely amazing view. We took out the Duffey boat several times during our stay and enjoyed the sightseeing. We LOVED having use of the Duffy. And it was easy to find the house when we headed back because it really is the tallest house on the peninsula. All the balconies were really nice too. We ate pretty much all our meals outside. There are also a lot of great restaurants close by.
Every detail of the house was awesome. The beds were super comfortable too and so was the bedding. We loved the cool Spanish tiled showers and bathtubs too. Our kids enjoyed the huge jacuzzi tub as much as I did.
We live in the San Francisco Bay Area and rent a lot of houses on the west coast through VRBO and this one was by far our favorite. We really appreciated that the property manager, Lauren, was responsive and very nice from beginning to end. She gave us a thourough tour of the house when we first arrived, which included showing us how to use the elevator and boat. We texted her with a question during our stay and she texted right back. In all honesty, this house was absolutely perfect and we definitely plan to rent it again. (BTW, we rented the house in mid-October and the weather was gorgeous.)"

"My family and I had an incredible time staying at this lovely, modern house so close to the beach! We took walks each morning on the sand, strolled the pier, enjoyed delicious food at the restaurants nearby, and relaxed. The house was clean, comfortable and had a beautiful view.
We can't wait to come back again next year!"

"We visit the Newport area several times a year, and as our season of life has changed, so have our needs in amenities! If great proximity (aka minimal driving!) to restaurants, attractions, and the beach is top of your priority list, this is your place. We have a small child, and this property made the beach headache-free and perfectly accessible to us, even when we had to run back for naps/lunch/forgotten items/etc! We loved the large, outdoor patio area, especially in the evenings. We brought our bikes and enjoyed riding just about a mile to both Newport and Balboa Piers, restaurants, and even took the ferry out to Balboa. We loved leaving the car parked. For families with children, the bedroom is very large and can easily fit a couple of kids. (A pack and play fits perfectly in the closet...a bonus!)
Matt was so kind to go out of his way to make sure we were comfortable, even with major family events of his own going on. For this area, professionalism, and cleanliness, the price truly can't be beat."
