Excellent value

  • 5 of 5

Nice 2 bedroom back unit on Balboa Island. It was a perfect place for my husband and I for a month. While the unit could use a coat of fresh paint and some updated appliances, the decor was nice, and the place was clean. The beds were extremely comfortable and the owner very accommodating. A plumbing problem was repaired in one day. We would definitely stay in the unit again. The unit has its own washer and dryer and car port, important!!

Excellent location and very nice Owner's!

  • 5 of 5

We flew in from Salt Lake City for our son's eye surgery at UCI and needed a nice centrally located place for him to recover for a few days. It was really nice to be able to access the ferry and walk to shops and restaurants or just stroll around the island. The place was very comfortable and clean and the neighbors were nice as well. We went out or picked up dinners at one of the many surrounding restaurants and it was all great! Stephanie was very kind and accommodating and a wonderful owner. Thank you so much!!

A Dream "Stay"cation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are locals, and needed a place to stay while work was being done on our home. Although we are familiar with Balboa Island, we were thrilled to experience it as tourists and residents do. We had such an enjoyable time, we plan to do it again! The best part about it was the comfortable and beautifully furnished rental, which is surely in one of the best locations on the island. Balboa Island itself, is centrally located to all of the wonderful activities in the southern coastal area. We highly recommend a stay at this property for visitors and locals alike!

Perfect Balboa Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 nights back in March and loved every minute of our Balboa staycation. The unit itself was in great condition and perfect for our family of four. Another family rented the front home so we were able to mingle between the two and it made a very fun and relaxing weekend. Tons of space and extras and the owners were very responsive and helpful throughout the whole process. Honestly we use VRBO on a frequent basis and to me this was one of the best values and locations on all of Balboa island. You will not be disappointed!

Perfect getaway

This was a great vacation for us! We visited your home with our 3 children and it was a great experience. The location was great...and everything in the home was new and clean. I would highly recommend this home to a family looking for a Balboa Island vacation!

Excellent customer service

  • 5 of 5

We have not yet stayed but if the property is anything like the customer service we received so far from Dave, the owner, I know we will be very satisfied. He returned my email with in 12 hours and returned my call promptly. I will update my review after our stay. However, so far I highly recommend this property.
