Recent Balboa Peninsula reviews
Great location clean house
"I stayed here with my family and thoroughly enjoyed the location and house. The house was clean and has a huge enclosed backyard with a BBQ and room to entertain. There is a beautiful ocean view from the living room and only 4 houses to the ocean and boardwalk. The location is in the heart of the peninsula and walking distance to the grocery store, pier, bars and endless restaurants.
The neighborhood was clean and friendly. The house was big enough to sleep 2 or 3 families."

"What a vacation -- what a house --- right on the beach - first floor is key. Coffee on the patio while people watching. Cocktails and sunset all from the patio as you sit on the beach. Whale watching, Dolphins all from the patio just a bonus. House is clean with all amenities. Lawn chairs provided and are key for the beach. Bikes, boogie boards and parking. Location location location. When not onthebeach you can walk to town and frequent a dozen different shops and/or restaraunts. Don't ever need to leave -unless of course for day trips. So close to John Wayne airport.
Owner met us while we arrived to show place and amenities. We were able to occupy earlier since we had an early flight. Working grill, washer/dryer can't say enough ---- we want to come back again and soon. Quite spectacular ! And as the daughter of a realtor------ it's all about location location location"

"Overall we were pleased the place was as advertised. The location was right where we wanted to be and u could see the and from the patio.
The only negative was some discourteous upstairs tenants that were loud and late every night, and the sound comes through loudly."

"We rented the upper unit for spring vacation. It fit all 7 of us comfortably. The unit was just renovated. The ocean/marine decor adds a bit of unique fun to the experience. The ceiling is constructed with finished wood beams that compliment the beautiful new wood flooring.
The owner was very accommodating and great to work with. He was quick to resolve any issues we had with the unit and suggested several things to do.
The duplex is located very near the beach and not having to worry about children crossing a busy street was a plus. Beach things provided for the use of renters include boogie boards, beach chairs, and beach toys for the kids. Newport Beach Pier, a grocery store, Santo's Tacos, and a Gelato store are among the many, many places within walking distance from the unit. From the pier, we saw a couple of juvenile whales playing fairly close to the shore as well as a few Sea Lions swimming around the end of the pier. All great experiences for families."
