About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Balboa Island is one of the premium vacation spots in the country. If you're going to vacation at the best, why not stay at the best? This newly remodeled home is perhaps the ideal location on the island. Just feet away from the water and only three houses from the main street makes picking something up from the shops easier than any other spot on the island.

It's on the only beachfront without boat tie ups, completely wide open for better beach enjoyment and absolutely breathtaking views. Located on the South Bay Front provides perfect sun exposure, gentle warm breezes and a direct view of the main inlet harbor.

The house is 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, and a great room with a fantastic entertainment center. In the living room there is a 46 inch HD flat screen television with Direct TV, VHS and DVD Player.

The Master bedroom has a 42 inch HD flat screen television with Direct TV. The other bedrooms have 23 inch HD flat screen televisions with Direct TV. The house sleeps 6 comfortably. Internet access is also available with a modem for Ethernet connection as well as Wi-Fi access.

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect place for an after Christmas winter holiday with our adult sons. There is a small beach in front where we were able to drop in our kayaks for paddles around the island each day. The view from the living room and patios is outstanding, with sunsets and sail boats. Restaurants and shopping are about a 2 minute walk. The ferry is about a 6 minute walk. Morning strolls around the island are the perfect way to start the day, especially if you start out toward Marine Ave. where you can pick up a Starbucks on the way. We really appreciated having a designated parking place since parking can be challenging on the island. This rental is clean and well kept, no complaints! The location on the island's perimeter near the water, but away from the noise of the main drag is perfect! We look forward to staying here again.

Balboa Island is magical and this home offers a front row seat to the magic.

  • 4 of 5

It was comfortable, well stocked, and an easy, 1- minute walk to the Marine Avenue amenities. The owner was easy to reach and work with. Our only complaints were trying to fit a large car into a tiny space and listening to a loud party above us. Luckily, they toned it down before too long. Overall, it was a great way to enjoy the magic that Balboa is known for.

Fabulous location!!

  • 5 of 5

Finishing up our 5 th consecutive year renting this home. And it feels like home to us at this point. Weather was perfect (as usual) and the views were spectacular. This house could not be located in a better spot for relaxing, walking to nearby restaurants to eat and, people and dog watching!. We'll be back for year #6 for sure.

Life of leisure

  • 5 of 5

Great place to relax and have a family barbecue. We found everything we needed. Most of our time was spent on the patio taking in the view. The seals put on quite a show for us. Fun time had by all. Thanks Don.

Perfect summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

What is better than opening the patio door first thing in the morning to be greeted by the ocean? We had a wonderful week at this property with our three year old child and small dog. It is a comfortable space in the perfect location - easy to walk to Main Street, short walk to the ferry and just all around convenient. We would love to come back!
