Santa Rosa, Ca

comfortable unit, great location, responive and helpful landlords

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a great location on Balboa Island and part of the downtown area. It is located above a restaurant (which is a must visit) with live music but this was not an issue. The unit was very clean and the owners were very responsive to several small issues that needed to be fixed. Their restaurant, The Village Inn, is very good and as mentioned does have regularly scheduled live music. On main street Ciao is good for Italian food and there is a market across the street. The island is a wonderful area to walk and we averaged 10 miles + per day. You can rent bikes and take the ferry to the Balboa peninsula and ride along the ocean, stopping to have lunch at one of the nice restaurants.

You can't go wrong here! Perfect location to explore around the island. Very comfortable. Clean.

To get to the beach you have to take a short ferry ride to the peninsula. Would recommend you rent bikes to get around.

Owners couldn't be nicer. Great to work with and quick responses.

Highly recommended. Can't wait to go back!

Great location but could have been appointed better.

  • 3 of 5

The location was great and the owner, who we met on scene, was fantastic. However, the place should be upgraded a bit with newer furniture and the like. Numerous light bulbs were missing and it was not as clean as it could have been. The place could be rated 5 stars with a few thousand in upgrades and more attention paid to detail.

Great apartment in a wonderful location.

  • 4 of 5

Huge master bedroom with comfortable king size bed. Leather couches in living room. Above the Village Inn restaurant and bar. Even though there are muscians playing nightly, we never heard a peep--unless we were in the restaurant/bar ourselves! Well supplied kitchen. Would have loved to have had a hair dryer provided and a note explaining how to work the heater and the tv too. Great owners. Very responsive. Would definitely stay here again.

Family Fun on Balboa Island!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 especially enjoyed staying here! We weren't sure how it would be staying so close to the main street, but the island is rather quiet & our stay was just perfect. The apartment above the restaurant is very roomy & tastefully decorated. We enjoyed going across the ferry to the beach, as well as staying right on the island. We often cooked in the apartment during the day & each night we tried a new restaurant for dinner & grabbed a frozen banana or balboa bar as we walked the path around the island. We also thoroughly enjoyed kayaking & paddle boarding (rentals) around the island! Everything was within walking distance! Also the owners were extremely nice & accommodating! Thank you for a really WONDERFUL long weekend to finish up our summer! :) We hope to be back soon!
