Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful home! Definitely exceeded our expectations. The location could not be better- right on the bay front and perfectly centered between the ferry to the Balboa Peninsula and Balboa Island's main street. We had two parking spots in the carport which was nice since the island is busy in the summer.



The accommodations were great. There is a large patio on the boardwalk with a big, clean grill. There is an open floor plan downstairs with a large sit down bar for entertaining. The bedrooms were spacious and nicely decorated. There is a big jacuzzi on the roof! We had access to the Duffy boat, kayaks and bikes.



The owner was really helpful in giving us recommendations about restaurants and places to visit. Overall a really relaxing, wonderful week. We have stayed in hotels in the area in the past but will definitely rent this home for our next visit. It made all the difference being in a home that was both elegant yet comfortable. Thanks to the owners for a wonderful vacation!!

50th Wedding Anniversary at Balboa Island Bay Front Beauty!

  • 5 of 5

This week celebration far exceeded our expectations in every way possible. Beginning with our wonderful greeting by Shelley. She made us feel right at home giving us a tour of her"Beyond Beautiful Home". EVERYTHING was PERFECT from the home, location, Duffy, golf cart, bike, kayaks, spa with a view beyond belief, comfy beds, kitchen with every spice & utensil you could think of. Our cars never left there parking spots! (except when our son-in-law & youngest grandson went to an Angel Game!!! You either walk or cruise in the Duffy. This was our family's 8th year on the Island and by far THE BEST.......Thank You so much!

The place is magical!

  • 5 of 5

I want to thank Shelley for doing everything in her power to make us feel welcome and accommodated. Little things that they did to make us feel welcomed meant big time for us. When you spend this kind of money you hope to feel special and appreciated and I can think of 4 or 5 different things that we felt immediate response and support on which made me feel so good about the investment I made in the trip. Everything the other people have shared was true and accurate about the accommodations. This place rocks! little chilly in mid may most mornings but maybe that is So Cal. Shelley is the bomb, if any of you are so lucky to visit with her, she really takes personal interest in the property, in you and your trip. Shelley, the kids loved the Lemonade stand and it was quite the racket as they earned $49 in just a couple of hours! lol Enjoy your time my friends, it was a blessing and I can see why the reviews are so good now that I have experienced it myself.

BEST VACATION!

  • 5 of 5

My family just spent a wonderful birthday celebration here on this property. It has everything one needs and more for a fabulous vacation! The home is beautiful, warm and very spacious; not to mention a FULL bar built into the living room! The location is the best. It's just a short walk to all the shops and restaurants in this cute little village. On the evenings we didn't want to walk into town, we used the electric car (seats 6!) that comes with the house. One of our favorite features of the house is the proximity to the water and the views! We spent many evenings sitting out on the waterfront patio watching the sunset and boats passing by and enjoyed our coffee there in the mornings watching the sunrise. If not sitting on the patio watching the hustle and bustle of the boats, the house comes with an electric Duffy boat to cruise the bay (which is so much fun)! It is a very relaxing atmosphere. In the evenings we went up to the roof top for a Jacuzzi gazing at the view of stars.

We were so happy these owners are PET FRIENDLY! We have 2 small dogs and it is not easy to find a jewel of a place that allows pets. Our pets are very important to us and we were so happy we were able to have them with us. This was our first time at this property and won't be our last!!! We loved it. We plan on coming back in the very near future!

This was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Had a Sisters; Getaway/Birthday Celebration with my 5 sisters. The home is beautiful & comfortable. Excellent location & wonderful amenities that you are encouraged to take advantage of & we did!! So fun to take sunset cruises in the Duffy, cruise the Island in the 6 passenger golf cart but even better being able to walk to great restaurants for dinner either on the Island or taking the Ferry to the peninsula. The roof top Jacuzzi was a real treat. The owners are lovely & make you feel very welcome in their home. We can't wait to go back.

The best house on the island!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous home for a family or couples vacation. We have been coming back for years, and every stay here exceeds our expectations. Amazing location, as it's right on the strand and an easy walk to the ferry, downtown, restaurants, markets and shopping. We spend most of our time on the large patio which has a great view of the harbor. There's so much to do. Just steps from the sand, we play bocce ball, kayak, SUP, run/walk around the island, and enjoy cruising around the harbor in the duffy/electric boat. There's also a large jacuzzi on the roof with amazing views.

This elegant home is wonderful for relaxing and entertaining. The high end chef's kitchen has everything you need, and there is an amazingly large, well stocked bar! The bedrooms are large, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Accommodates four couples or a large family comfortably.

The owners are so gracious, and really helpful with recommendations about restaurants and things to do.

You will love your stay here, as we do every year. Looking forward to our next visit!
