beautiful house!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The owner was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. The house is spacious and nicely decorated. It could use a good cleaning and perhaps some attention to detail to ensure that everything that is advertised is working properly. The house is close to everything and lovely. We stayed during the Christmas holiday and enjoyed the lights of the boat parade and the decorations in the little downtown. We had a wonderful time.

Wonderful Surprise 80th Birthday Celebration with Family

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my husband's 80th birthday at this house - a surprise gathering which included family from Pennsylvania, Michigan, and England. There were 14 of us and we all had a wonderful time in this beautiful house. There was plenty of room for everyone and we enjoyed meals together around the huge dining room table, and coffee in the mornings on the lovely front patio. The house was very comfortable, super clean, and perfect for our large group. It's an easy walk to town where we enjoyed a couple of terrific meals at Wilma's Patio. Balboa is beautiful - especially at night, with all the Christmas lights everywhere. Thank you, Steve, for the great accommodations and for providing plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, tissues and all the cooking utensils we needed, as well as a nifty little bar complete with cocktail shakers, martini glasses, and cocktail napkins. We will definitely come back again!

Perfect Home for a Luxury Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Really wonderful home. Beautiful art on the walls. A wonderful home to vacation with family in. The Beach gear in the garage - bikes, chairs, sand buckets/toys for kids, and towels - were the cherry on top. My mom had a 60th birthday to remember in a great setting, great home. Thank you!

Lovely home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a 50th birthday party celebration and it was wonderful. The house is lovely and fully equipped (including new washer & dryer). Everything you need is here! Great location, street parking was available each day, short walk to the adorable main street , the BBQ worked great, the kids had a blast riding the ferry over to the Fun Zone.

The art in the house was painted by the owners wife and one of our friends who stopped by is a long-time fan of her art and shared her knowledge which was great for all

Steve, the owner was very responsive and great to work with.

This will go down, in our family, as one of our most memorable and fun events.
