About Sheila and or Joshua LaBarge

My wife and I live within 45 minutes of the property in the Inland Empire. We are in our 40's and love to have a great place to entertain and hang out.

Great accommodations

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of interior room with washer/dryer and big kitchen. We love the outdoor patio area.

Parking, however, is a bit tight, especially on weekends - plan accordingly.

Nice spacious home close to beach, harbor and restaurants.

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay here on Balboa Peninsula. The home is in a very convenient location that is close to restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and the beach. The home has plenty of room for you to unwind and relax. There are also 4 beach cruiser bikes, beach chairs, and boogie boards for you and you family to use. Over all, a really nice getaway!!!

The perfect place for a relaxing, stress-free beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, everything was exactly as it had been described, and so much more! The home was beautiful and very welcoming, not to mention extremely spacious. We loved the location. You could walk out the front door to the Fun Zone or go out the garage and be on the beach within minutes. We loved using the beach cruisers to ride down the strand and we appreciated that the beach towels and toys were provided, as well as many other conveniences. We highly recommend this rental and hope to come back soon. Our special thanks to the LaBarge's for allowing us to enjoy their lovely home and create many wonderful memories!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The location is great but the house and the things in it are some what worn out.

For example, the ac does not work, the boiler is noisy, and appliances in general should be changed; there is also a fold out bed / fouton which is very uncomfortable . The owners were attentive enough when necessary though. All in all I would still recommend this rental. If this place were to be refurbished a little it would be perfect .

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review Mark. We are happy you and your family enjoyed your stay. I was a little confused with regard to your comment concerning the appliance as they are 3 years old. We will certainly check into the water heater noise and air conditioner. Thank you again and we look forward to your return trip.

Loved this place...a real gem

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our family, as described, near everything but also feels very private and secluded, having garage to park was awesome (other places only offer street parking). Beautiful place, fun and relaxing atmosphere, really enjoyed riding bikes along beach boardwalk to the Seaside Bakery, and on the ferry to Balboa island. Feels like going to a secret hideaway as it is tucked away from public view (much nicer than along beach in my opinion and still just steps to beach). Nice to have conveniences like outdoor grill, dishwasher and washer and dryer. Very fortunate to have found this treasure. Kids told me they wanted to live there (: Thanks for a wonderful home away from home!
