Great location, in need of TLC

  • 3 of 5

The location is great. The house itself needs a face lift. The kitchen has been remodeled which is nice, would be great to see the rest caught up.

Cozy home all the necessities. Although there is a gas grill noted in the site but no propane.

Wonderful. Very beachy, close to the ferry, bay shops pretty much everything. My mother loved it so much she's going to try to rent it with friends in the fall.

Great cottage for a reunion...four siblings.

  • 4 of 5

We met at the 1929 original cottage for a winter weekend get together of four siblings from all over the west coast. It was a perfect fit with four bedrooms so that everyone had their own small bedroom and comfortable bed. The front patio and awning provided a great space for a wine and cheese party and the living room, with the large flat screen TV, was relaxing for late-night SNL. The kitchen is remodeled and roomy so that all four of us could prepare food and enjoy time together. There are two bathrooms, one with a shower, the other with a bathtub. The house is very well equipped and a short walk from shops and restaurants on Balboa Island. We had a wonderful time and would consider renting the house again for a summer weekend with family. Thank you to the owner Joe for his responsiveness and a great house for a wonderful weekend.
