Why James Melton chose Balboa Peninsula

A comfortable home is a mostly family area of the penensulia. We are happy to share our home with all who will respect and treat it as if it was their own.

What makes this condo unique

Unlike most other rentals in the area, our home is ready to be enjoyed. We provide bed linens and the bathrooms are stocked with paper, soap and shampoo. The kitchen is well appointed with almost everything you would need to cook with. All you need to do is pack the frig with food and enjoy your stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved staying in your beautiful beach home during our transition from 30 year family home owners to retirement home owners. The beach ambiance was wonderful, especially the fresh air!

Perfect location, welcoming host

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property while in town for a wedding. It was a perfect home base and well stocked with everything we needed (even a pack n play for those traveling with little ones). I was impressed with the cleanliness and upkeep of the property. The only negative for us was no AC (only an issue because we stayed during a major heat wave . . . there are ceiling fans). The two parking spots are absolutely invaluable if you're staying during the summer. The park across the street is perfect for kids. Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family vacation. With lots of babies, it was great being so close to the beach so we could come and go as we pleased. The house was very clean and fit all 11 us perfectly! Would definitely recommend it!

Great access to beach and comfortable furnishings with lots of added extras included

  • 5 of 5

We had problems with the rowdy and drunk downstairs tenants on July 4 starting at 9 am, however, the owner called the police and the problem was resolved. Our kitchen sink became clogged and it was repaired quickly.

The house included many things not normally supplied like detergent, paper products and even some condiments.

It is a nice location but the front of the house can be noisy as it's on the main drag of the Balboa Peninsula. A lovely park is located right across the street for kids and harbor views are nice.

If you want peace and quiet during a prime summer week, then this may not be for you.

However, if you want a great house with good beach access and in the middle of it all I think you'll be happy..

Perfect for my large family-young and old!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely perfect! Better than pictured! The location was amazing it was literally only a 3 minute walk with seven kids and a wagon. The owner was so helpful with all of my questions. The house contained everything we needed. There was the park across the street on one side and the beach right there on the other with the balboa fun zone just down the road. With 7 kids ranging from 8-14 we never once heard a complaint about being bored or needing anything. This was an amazing stay and really helped bring our family together.
