About Karen & George Watson
Hello, We are Karen and George Watson. You can learn more about us at our professional website...thebusinesspsychologist.com. We have raised our five children on Balboa Island. We logged many hours sitting on the sand at the end of the street when they were small and watched them learn to surf, swim, row, scuba dive etc... When they grew up we remodeled the house and moved to Montana, where we enjoy riding our horses. We could not leave the Island and our children insist on visiting; so we now have a weekly vacation rental. We hope you and your family will make many wonderful memories here as well.
Why Karen & George Watson chose Balboa Island
This is our home when we come to California. We keep it spotless,decorated and well appointed with amenities. We cook in the kitchen, BBQ on the patio, enjoy walking the quiet end of the island. Hopefully, our personal touch will make your stay like family.
What makes this House unique
We mostly rent to people who return year- after-year to stay in our home. They often feel it is their personal vacation second home. People come from Europe and some from a nearby cities, to enjoy the beach. We hope you will become one of our extended families.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Enjoyed our stay
We spent the week over July 4th and had a great time. The location was great and the house was very clean. It had everything we needed. No complaints.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home. Every detail was included, and the location is great! We will certainly rent here again when we make plans to return to California. It was truly a delightful escape!
We were so happy to return to this wonderful home. Spotless clesn, well maintained. Big kitchen which is great because I love to cook. Beds comfy. Great tv room proximity to the water, nice neighbors. We love it
Very comfortable home away from home
We stayed for 1 week in December with our family
Extremely comfortable home
Had a great time with family and friends.
Thanks George! Hope to be back.
Bottenfield Family - Balboa Island
Had a great time getting the family together for a special week on Balboa Island. The house was comfortable and welcoming. We especially enjoyed the openness of the downstairs area.....lots of room for working on a large puzzle and having wonderful pancake breakfasts for the whole gang. Having 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths, that were so nice, was great. The house location is close to the beach and the ferry. The weather was absolutely perfect!
However, some of the items such as towels and bedding really need updating. So, because of this, will give a 4 star instead of 5.
Thanks for the review. I spoke with our cleaning crew about the bedding and have resolved that. We are pleased you had a great time. Please come again.
Balboa Island is one of seven islands located in upscale Newport Harbor. All of this is often called Newport Beach. Balboa Island is special with a small town charm.
From Balboa Island you can walk and ride a small 3 car and pedestrian ferry to the Pacific Ocean. In 5 minutes you will be on Balboa Penninsula and then it's a short walk to the Pacific Ocean. Here you can rent boats, bikes, surf and ride the waves.
Or you can relax in our comfortable Victorian Beach house and play, sun and swim at the beach on the bay, located four doors from our home. BBQ on our patio. A boardwalk encircles Balboa Island for a pleasant 1.7 mile walk. Add a .79 extra bit to your walk, if you bought a Balboa ice cream bar on your walk!
Lots of shops and restaurants on the main street, called Marine Ave., for you to enjoy and on your walk.
Newport Beach is located on the Pacific Ocean between San Diego and Los Angeles. We are near many attractions such as Laguna Beach, Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, LEGOLAND, South Coast Plaza (major shopping/restaurants), Newport Center (more major shopping/restaurants). You can take a ferry to Catalina Island-26 miles across the sea! Lots of free public tennis courts, run in the back bay or bird watch etc...
