Duffy Boat & Kayaks with Every Rental!!!

With over 200 feet of bay front patio, this fully furnished upscale home is a rare find in Orange County. Most people have never heard of a Collins Island because we are an island within an island. Collins Island is made up of just 8 homes right off of the historic Balboa Island in Newport Beach, CA. The best part of this gem is that it is close enough to all the main city attractions, yet far enough away to escape the city life.

Indoors you will find yourself surrounded by plush linens, state-of-the-art amenities and upscale décor. This home is comprised of a master with an in suite bath, and two additional guest bedrooms which share a common rock shower bath. The second bedroom is furnished with a queen bed and shares the same harbor views as the master suite. The third bedroom is designed to be a children’s room complete with two twin beds; however, they can be easily converted into a queen bed. There are numerous ways to keep yourself entertained indoors whether it be at our wet bar, playing a game of pool on our billiard table, or enjoying a movie on one of our many flat screen TVs. The tropical landscape, fire pit, Tiki torches, lounge chairs, BBQ, and outdoor heating lamps, make Island living come alive. No other home on the Island has as much outdoor living space as ours!

Our home is just a short bike ride away from the Balboa Boardwalk comprised of various shops, markets and restaurants. Here on the Island, bike riding is the best way to get around which is why we provide our guests with 2 complimentary beach cruisers. Better yet, a short walk and ferry ride will land you at the famous Newport Peninsula which provides a spacious public beach! If you are looking for a family adventure, Disneyland is a favorite place to visit. But the best part about this Orange County vacation rental is that it comes with the full use of our 21’ electric Duffy boat for free!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Several years ago, my family was forced to make a last minute change in vacation plans so we had to find a new destination in a hurry. We just happened upon the Best Spots website. We quickly booked their Collins Island property for a week and held our breath. I will never forget the look on my families faces when we entered the premises. This is an older property but it is really quite charming and in immaculate condition. It is super clean and there is just no way to adequately describe the location. It’s close to lots of touristy things but what we like best is just relaxing on the HUGE waterfront patio: peaceful, quiet (except for the occasional luxury yacht passing by) and just down right relaxing. Collins Island has since become a family tradition, as we have returned there every summer since, extending our stay each time. This year we have it booked for an entire month!

Beautiful Estate

  • 5 of 5

the estate was amazing to stay at with my husband and kids. Everything was luxury all the way. Concierge welcomed us at the door, showed us how to use the boat. All sheets are dry cleaned and crisp, kitchen is newly remodeled. Absolutely breath taking home.
