Recent Balboa Peninsula reviews

  • AMAZING!!!

    "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!!"

  • Amazing Vacation Rental!

    "My family and I had such a great week in this house! It is in the perfect location on Balboa Pennisula with everything you need within minutes. You have a beautiful view of the bay from the living room and porch and the beach right out front. It is a short walk to a kids fun zone, restaurants, Island Ferry, and ocean. The owner Mary and her daughter Terri are wonderful and the place was immaculate with everything you could possibly need. All we had to do was buy food. Hopefully we can stay here again in the future. I highly recommend this place!"

  • Perfect rental home

    "This was an adorable rental. So clean and a ton of clean towels! The decor is just amazing. Such attention to detail and the master bath is beautiful. I hope we can find time to stay here again next year. The location is great, right by the Balboa Fun Zone close enough to bike to the Newport pier or walk to the Balboa pier. Saturdays and Sundays are busy in the area so plan to either park and leave your car on the street for the weekend or insure you have a small enough car to get in and out of the garage. Finding street parking on the weekend can be a challenge. The only draw back to the property is it is a very open floor plan so only 1 room gives you complete privacy (this did not bother us). The upstairs room each have a staircase to the downstairs and are connected by an enclosed outdoor deck so thru traffic to and from the outdoor deck has to walk thru the upstairs bedroom. We found this rental an ideal size for our group (me, my husband, my Mom and 3 kids; 16, 15, 4) Our kids loved the enclosed deck area to hang out and they had the entire top floor to themselves. There are a number of stairs in the rental so I would not recommend this for folks with younger children (but the downstairs unit would likely be great for toddlers)"

  • Location, Parking, Beach!!

    "What an absolutely perfect spot on the beach - you can't get any better. Huge beach, wake up to surfers and sound of the ocean - not crowded during March spring break. And being one house off of the bike/walking path is huge for privacy/noise. We had a 4 and 5 yr old with us and while the walk was a bit far to the Newport Pier (but we still did it), we had easy walks to eat out near the Pavilion grocery store and gelato! House itself had plenty of extra sheets, (beach) towels, plastic ware, etc. Nice to have private parking on site and would be ideal to store bikes. Main bath with shower will need a remodel at some point to match the rest of the house but overall great space for 4 days, even for a family of 4! I would recommend investing in new beds in the near future as well. Owners are low key and friendly and provided some Keurig coffees, fresh pastries and every recommendation was spot on! Would recommend and would definitely stay here again:)"
