Recent Balboa Island reviews
A Perfect Getaway
"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!"

"Our stay at this water front home was perfect for my husband and I. We loved being on the canal and close to the bridge to walk over to all the restaurants and shops. We spent most of our afternoons sitting on the very large patio with a glass of wine watching the sun going down. We really enjoyed using the kayaks right off the dock. We used the bikes and took the ferry over to the ocean board walk and biked for miles. This beach home is equipped with everything you would need for a vacation, including a washer and dryer and garage. I loved the decor showing what Balboa Island was like in the 20's. We have been coming to Balboa Island for many years, as we used to live in the Newport Beach area. Renting on Balboa Island is one of our favorite vacations, and this was the best home we have rented on the Island!"

"I don't think we will ever rent another house! We rented the upstairs & downstairs! It accommodated our family so perfectly! There was so much room in the bedrooms, kitchen & living room! It was wonderful having all of the dressers available so we weren't living out of our suitcases for the week! The patio downstairs & side patio were perfect! Loved having the garage as well! Already booking next year & we practically just left! Perfect central location to anywhere we wanted to go! And right down from the swim beach! Which is where we spend most of our time. Looking forward to next year!"

"This cute bungalow was just the right space for me to call home for a week. After living in Newport Beach for 20 years, then moving to NC, this house was in the best location for me to revisit all the things I love about the area, see my friends and my grown kids. The owner is so hospitable and helpful! I brought my little dog along. There is an enclosed patio where she was able to hang out. This house has space for one car in the garage -- SO IMPORTANT because parking is a challenge on Balboa Island."
