Recent Balboa Peninsula reviews
Balboa Peninsula beach house
"John always provides a clean comfortable home at the beach, we have been renting from him for over 10 years. It is close to the beach, a park across the street for the kids to play and stores within walking distance."

"We love Balboa Island, especially the Grand Canal. We have stayed in many houses on the Grand Canal over the years, but this was our favorite. The kitchen and bathrooms are remodeled and beautiful and the living area is spacious and bright. John and Sue were very prompt when answering questions, and the on-site caretaker, Tom, was also a big help. We started our stand up paddling in the canal every day and took long walks several times a day. We never needed to get in our car. A perfect getaway!"

"I can't say enough about this property. The location was perfect. Everything on the peninsula was within walking distance, which is a major plus. The house was very clean and well kept. I couldn't ask for more in a vacation home."

BEST RENTAL WE'VE STAYED AT ON THE NEWPORT PENINSULA!
"We've been coming to Newport for 15 years, staying on the Peninsula - and this is our NEW FAVORITE! Janice & Bill were great hosts, making booking arrangements so easy. But when we walked into the house, that's when we knew we had picked a really great house this time! Music was playing quietly and as we walked around the house, one room was nicer than the next. We loved the little touches, the art on the walls, the book of THINGS TO DO, an extensive choice of books and current magazines, even a small safe for our valuables. And one house from the sand.
Over our five night stay, we found the kitchen had everything we needed (and then some), we loved hanging out on the front patio, being steps from the beach was perfect, and the restaurant recommendations in the book were great! The beds were comfy and the bedding was very nice, and the house was super clean. Our family of six could not have been happier. We were just a half hour from Disneyland and we didn't even have to get on the freeway and hassle with traffic! Instead of looking for a different vacation home for next year, we are planning a stay at the Sandcastle again! We most definitely recommend this vacation home if you are looking for a clean and comfortable house just steps from the beach."
