Great location, wonderful owner!
"Had a real great time just hanging out! Had a more of a personal visit. But felt like a vacation! BJ was wonderful, worked with us on the personal stuff. And made it feel like we were family. A great lady that made us feel like family!
Next time we go and we will, we hope to just make it more of a vication!"

The house was perfect in every single way! It was even more beautiful than the photo.
"This house is pure luxury. We had such a fabulous time and the owner and property manager thought of pretty much everything to make our stay perfect. It was fully equipped with everything you could need in the kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms. There was also a ton of closet space for our clothes and suitcases. The house also included the use of four really nice bikes, beach chairs, beach toys, kayaks, etc. We went to Disneyland one day but decided to forgo the second day because we preferred to hang out at the house because it was so awesome. This was actually the kids’ idea.
The house sits in a prime location right at the water’s edge. The kids played pool, or with beach toys by the water when the tide was low, while the adults enjoyed the absolutely amazing view. We took out the Duffey boat several times during our stay and enjoyed the sightseeing. We LOVED having use of the Duffy. And it was easy to find the house when we headed back because it really is the tallest house on the peninsula. All the balconies were really nice too. We ate pretty much all our meals outside. There are also a lot of great restaurants close by.
Every detail of the house was awesome. The beds were super comfortable too and so was the bedding. We loved the cool Spanish tiled showers and bathtubs too. Our kids enjoyed the huge jacuzzi tub as much as I did.
We live in the San Francisco Bay Area and rent a lot of houses on the west coast through VRBO and this one was by far our favorite. We really appreciated that the property manager, Lauren, was responsive and very nice from beginning to end. She gave us a thourough tour of the house when we first arrived, which included showing us how to use the elevator and boat. We texted her with a question during our stay and she texted right back. In all honesty, this house was absolutely perfect and we definitely plan to rent it again. (BTW, we rented the house in mid-October and the weather was gorgeous.)"

"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!"
