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:)"

"This is a wonderful home to rent. Every supply and comfort has been thought out. We loved the location. Going to the beach with small children can be hard, but the beach was so close and the beach was safe. If we wanted to eat out the restaurants and diner were not far. We rented bikes and drove clear to Huntington Beach,and the Wedge, and back in a short time. We had a very pleasant stay. We will definately stay or rent this property again. Thanks Jim for greeting us and showing us through the property so we felt familiar with your home."

"We truly enjoyed our experience at Casa de Balboa. The location was fantastic, steps from the beach and less than a 5 minute walk to the restaurants. The kayak and stand up paddle board rentals were dropped off right at Mothers Beach....so easy and convenient. The place was beautiful and we particularly loved the large, fenced patio (we were downstairs), which was perfect for the dogs. Unfortunately we did have a few issues (place not available at originally scheduled check in time; non-functioning freezer and thus no ice!), but the management was very responsive and did their best to remedy the issues without interfering with our vacation. We have already reserved again for next year!"

Perfect location, great place and worth every penny!
"My family of 4 (2 adults, 12yr old and 14yr old) had a wonderful week making memories and relaxing at this great place! We stayed in the lower unit. It was a beautiful place that had everything you may need. The pictures of the interior do not do this unit justice. It was nicer then we expected and we were even more pleased. There is beautiful tile through out and the furniture/bedding/window covering have had an update. I would not hesitate to recommend this place. You are 1 block away from the beach! You have a awesome patio all to yourself, an outdoor shower, beach chairs, umbrellas, an assigned parking space, and prompt and personable owners. Thanks for a wonderful time!"
