One of the best rentals on the island!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this property for a few months during our remodel. We are local and have never rented on the island before. We absolutely loved the property as well as the owners! The home has everything you could possibly need during your stay and has enough space for up to two families. The home is clean, updated, and extremely comfortable. The location was perfect! Close enough to walk anywhere but far enough away from the crowds. We loved being able to walk to dinner, play on the bay and the kids loved taking the ferry across to the fun zone. I can be very perticular about where I stay on my vacation and this home exceeded my expectations. The owners are extremely helpful and easy to communicate with. We can't wait to plan another staycation to Balboa island!

Everything about the stay was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very clean and every aspect about it was great. The owner/manager is very professional and cordial. We have a large family and had two units rented through VRBO on the island for the week. They were within two blocks If one another. The island and the residents are wonderful. The proximity to all that is needed, stores, restaurants, amusement parks, fun zone and the beach can not be beat for any age.

Walkable Newport Vacation

  • 5 of 5

On the tiny island of Balboa, there sits a charming home that accommodated our group of women for 4 beautiful days. The home was clean, featured beautiful windows, and had an ample kitchen and living area. The instructions to the home were visible in the home, and also through email. Our hosts were close by in case we needed anything or had any questions. But, the best part of the home was it's location. We spent the morning taking walks around the perimeter of the island, and walks into "town" where we tried different breakfast spots. We could walk over to the ferry and catch a ride over to the peninsula to grab dinner and see the beach, or we could walk up the bridge to Newport to go shopping and try their lunch spots. The only time we used the car was to head to Laguna Beach for the day. Definitely stay here!

Beautiful and ideal location on Balboa Island

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful experience staying at this beach rental on Agate. The owners were so wonderful to work with and accommodating from our first email interaction to our check out. This made things feel very comfortable and easy on choosing a place to rent for vacation. Our family of four joined by two grandparents, had more than enough room in this well layed out beach house. The location is perfect being just down the street from both the ferry and the Ruby beach. The front porch is where we spent most of our time, using the grill and sitting around the patio furniture, talking and eating. We have stayed on Balboa Island each of the last 4 years in various houses, and this was definitely the best in the way of space, location, accommodations and ease of use. We appreciate the owners assistance through the process

Wonderful property and great property owners!

  • 5 of 5

We stay in lots of VRBO properties but wanted to call out this one. The owners are super responsive, very thoughtful. We thought bbqs were broken but just didn't understand how to start them. They came right out to help and square things away. The property itself is very comfortable. Tall ceilings on the 2nd floor make the room feels really spacious. Nice decorations give everything a homey feel. Very clean. Location is right down the street to the Balboa Ferry. Top notch! By the second day, we were regretting that our trip wasn't longer. Everything about the property and owners made it a fantastic vacation. Thank you!
