Recent Balboa Peninsula reviews

  • Close to it all!

    "The other reviews have covered how nice this condo is, so I'll just highlight the things that made it work so well for us. First of all, after arriving, we never got back into our car until it was time to leave. There are many good restaurants with walking or biking distance. We rode with our 8 and 10 year old kids to the Fun Zone and even to the Huntington Beach pier. If you happen to come with younger kids, there's everything you need, from a Graco bed to beach toys to stuffed animals. There is a shower in the garage which is great for rinsing after the beach."

  • Perfect Holiday Getaway

    "My husband and I and our three adult children (ages 17, 20 and 23) rented this beachhouse for Christmas week. The home was on three levels and even more beautiful and spacious than the pictures. It was very clean and contained everything we needed. The home was well stocked with linens and beach towels, modern appliances which included a washer and dryer. It was decorated tastefully in a seaside theme and calming blue colors. We loved our huge master bedroom, fireplace, and large bathroom on its very own floor which gave us a sense of privacy. The patio with french doors off the master was large and had nice views. My sister-in-law made a bed on the couch in the living room which easily could have slept a few more people on blow up mattresses. The third bathroom right off the kitchen was helpful with a houseful. The location was perfect, just 1 block to the harbor where we went whale watching (saw a fin whale), and about 3 blocks to ocean. Everything was about a 5 or 10 minute walk from the home. The neighborhood was quaint and peaceful. The boys kayaked around Balboa island; we had great walks on the beach, and bikerides on the boardwalk. Our favorite dinner out was the nearby CrabCooker; fresh BBQ fish and fun casual atmosphere (but a little spendy). There were boogie boards and two working bikes provided, even a surfboard! I actually enjoyed not having internet, it was a wonderful break from being wired, although the neighbor told us we could easily get internet access at the nearby library. The stairs were no problem for us, however older folks may be concerned with stairs. We want to go back, it was incredibly relaxing. I highly recommend this house!"

  • Just what we needed!

    "Thank you Jason! The condo was great and didn't break the bank. It was just what we needed for the 4 of us and had everything we needed. Location is perfect, and having a parking spot off the street was nice. We'll remember you for our next visit with family:):)"

  • Great beach house!

    "We stayed at this lovely home in July. Had a great time. Lots of room. The neighborhood is very quiet and very well kept up. Patio is large with gas grill. The beach was only a few minutes walk away. No crossing any major streets to get there. Our kids (age 2,4, and 6) loved the beach nearby. Beach was not crowded at all. Garage on property was able to fit our Honda Odyssey minivan. There were bikes and beach chairs in the garage. Washer and dryer are newer and worked great. We had a few minor issues while we were there. Notified the owner by email and the property manager came by quickly and addressed everything. We received our deposit back within one week after our vacation. Would definitely stay here again in the future."
