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.)"

"This is the place my wife and l have brought our young family for years. It is everything advertised and so much more. The kitchen is perfect for feeding a family on vacation, its close to Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm and lots of other sightseeing locations. The area is peaceful, safe, friendly and just perfect for the kids to have a bit more freedom. The owners and property managers are always willing to help out when necessary, having a washer/dryer handy is a blessing and the owners provide so much that we don't have to bring extra beach stuff on the long journey. We love our stay at this quaint home and are grateful to those so willing to open their home to all of us."

"We really enjoyed our stay. The house is clean, neat and feels like "a home" (many rental properties in Newport are severely beat up and run down). The owner and property manager are both very easy to work with. The location is ideal for access to the beach, boardwalk and pier while also providing a quite night's sleep. We'll see you again soon!"

Large Rental Property on Balboa Island provides a wonderful vacation
"Balboa Island is the perfect get-away for young families and mature families. We coordinated a vacation with adult children and our grandchildren and this rental property handed our group perfectly. Four bedrooms and three baths. Large livingroom and large kitchen table to accommodate our crew of 8. The property owners provided bed linen, bath towels and enough beach towles, beach chairs, beach umbrellas for one and all. There was also a boogie board availabe. Garage with a space for one car and coin operated washer and dryer. Perfect location to easily catch the ferry. The owners were wonderful to work with and made the business side of the vacation very easy. They even helped me navigate sailing lesson options for my grandkids."
