About Carol Anne Econn
'Balboa Week' was were I spent Spring Break when I was in high school in Whittier, CA. When I married and had a family we just needed to repeat the perfect experience. And we do!
Carol Anne Econn purchased this House in 1977
Why Carol Anne Econn chose Balboa Island
Although the area surrounding Balboa Island has changed dramatically in the past years, the Island retains it special character. There are ferry rides, boat rides, kayaking, paddle boarding, Balboa Bars and walks around the islands.
What makes this House unique
'Balboa Cod' is the nickname for the style of house. It is cozy with an open floor plan that allows for lots of personal interaction. It is an easy walk to local spots and a short car ride to nearby Orange County attractions.

Just like Carol’s description on VRBO “Memories Are Made Here”, this description hits the mark.
This was the first time we rented a house using VRBO, and rented a home for six months on Balboa Island. My wife who has to be in a warmer climate during the winter months was the primary tenant with my time spent between California and our home in the Midwest.
Carol’s home was clean, comfortable and was at a beautiful location on the island. She provides everything needed in this vacation unit that anybody needs for daily living. The home furnishings and all the comforts make this unit as comfortable as back home.
There is a rental unit upstairs behind the prime residence and the tenant is a super person, always very friendly and helpful during our stay.
We would definitely recommend this property for any family and would’t think twice on renting this home on our return to the Island.

Creating your “Home-Away-From-Home” is my goal. Thank you for caring for my home as you would your own.
Comfortable and Clean home with many amenities.
Carol Anne's home is a gem rental on Balboa Island. Clean and updated with everything a renter could want - and more! In addition to linens, she even supplies toilet paper, laundry detergent, beach chairs and umbrellas.
Excellent afternoon sun and retracting patio shade if needed on hot days. Great location close to Ferry and short walk to downtown.
Carol Anne was very responsive and a great homeowner. We would definitely rent this property again.
My wish is for all who enjoy my home to have a memorable holiday. Thank you for highlighting some details that made your stay pleasant.
This is absolutely the best Balboa Island rental we have ever stayed in! It is clean, comfortable and close to the beach. Carol's house has all the linens you would ever need, a beach wagon full of chairs and umbrellas, a fantastic patio with new BBQ, and wifi access.
We will definitely be back!
Preparing for guests to have a great stay in my home is gratifying when I hear these words. I'm so pleased that you used my home for a memorable vacation.
The property was petfect! It had everything we could possibly need. The owner was so helpful to give us a full tour and let us know where we could find things, as well as contact her if there was anything we needed. The kitchen was stocked with all the pots and pans needed to cook meals so we didn't have to eat out very often. An added bonus was the beach chairs and umbrellas all fitting in the wagon ready to take to the bay. We will definitely recommend this property for any family who wants to visit Balboa Island.
I'm pleased to anticipate your vacation needs to provide a wonderful Balboa Island experience. Thank you!
Happiness in Balboa
We have stayed at this home several times & enjoy it each time. The open floor plan, the contemporary upscale furnishings, the fully stocked kitchen, the washer & dryer, the garage to park in when you can't find a spot on the crowded Balboa Island streets, the kayak & wagon to transport beach toys to the the beach, the air conditioning for those days it is hot enough to be thankful you have it, the outdoor patio with a table for 6 & a gas BBQ. There is really nothing we don't like about this house. We have stayed at several different houses on the island as have our friends....this remains our favorite place to spend a week. The owner, Carole, is so nice & very responsive to any concerns. A very, very pleasant experience in every aspect. We definitely want to return!
We loved our stay in this great home on Collins. It was very comfortable for my family. Three generations and our family dog. Really great.
Never use your car! Walk the circumference of Balboa and Little Island in 2.5 miles. Go down the block to Ruby Beach or take a car for a 10 minute ride to Corona Del Mar State Park Beach. Walk .2 miles to the ferry to take a stroll on the Peninsula and Balboa Pier. Or drive to Fashion Island or South Coast Plaza for divine shopping and dining. Longer trips take you for a day at Disneyland or Legoland.
