About Please E-Mail John
Bought the property in 1998 and fixed it up for a vacation rental with a plan to retire here someday. Continued remodeling and improving the property over the years. Someday finally came and we are living our dream in the downstairs main house after moving from the San Francisco Bay Area.
Please E-Mail John purchased this Apartment in 1998
Why Please E-Mail John chose Balboa Island
It was on the WATER! Also, a great quiet location on the island, just around the corner from the shops and restaurants, and a quick walk across the little bridge to a supermarket, drug store, cleaners, bank, and restaurants.
What makes this Apartment unique
On the Island and on the WATER!

Great property, best location!
As long time residents of Orange County (now returning to visit family after moving out of state) we know that the Grand Canal on Balboa Island is as good as it gets! We enjoyed watching the sunrise over the Newport Coast hills from the living room with the colors reflecting in the water in front of the house. The property is newly updated and decorated with a very cute beach theme. The owners, John and Sue, were very helpful and easy to work with. The location is ideal and some days we didn't even use our car- the boardwalk is right out front, the main street with shops and dining is 1 minute away, and Pavilions market is an easy 5 minute walk. The designated parking spot under the unit is a real plus, since street parking can be very limited. The property had everything we needed- kitchenette with big fridge and gas stove, DirecTV with DVR to record the Seahawks game, covered patio with electric BBQ, bedside lamps with USB plugs for our phones, even board games. We highly recommend this property!!
Mike and Sally,
Quiet, Peaceful Island Getaway.
This upstairs apartment has a great location on the Grand Canal. It is also very close to the main shopping strip where the restaurants are located - a two minute walk.
Excellent fitout and very comfortable for a couple. Quality appliances, renovated, modern bathroom and kitchen and all the starter condiments to allow meal preparation - either in the kitchen or BBQ on the deck overlooking the canal.
We found the owners very helpful and Tom (their onsite Manager) provides good assistance and all the local tips for a great stay.
Balboa Island is a delight for couples seeking a peaceful break in beautiful surroundings . We had great weather and enjoyed walking the island regularly and taking the ferry to the Peninsula. There are sufficient good restaurants on the island to meet all tastes - our favourite was Basilica (Swiss/French)..
We will return.
Thank you Rod & Lynn for your nice comments. It takes a leap of faith to book a private home all the way from Australia and we do appreciate your trust in us.
We were so delighted with the quality and attention to detail provided by the owners for this beautiful apartment. It was like stepping into a page from Coastal Living. What a find! Not your normal rental, at all. Very clean, upscale and private. A perfect couple's retreat. We have already recommended it to friends, and plan to return next summer.
When we remodeling the upstairs apartment a couple of years ago it was with the intention of using it ourselves and not renting it. We put in all new windows & doors, hardwood floors, crown moldings, new counter tops, tile bathroom, custom furniture and more - then changed our minds and have allowed parties of two only into our "owner's hide-a-way". We have had some great guests from all over the world stay - it's great to share our special place on the Island.
On the Grand Canal of Balboa Island in beautiful Newport Beach Harbor. Just 1/2 a block to the many shops and restaurants of the Village.
