Perfect Location on Balboa Island!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday at this wonderful home. We had a group of 14, we rented both the 3 bedroom 3 bath home and the 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment in back. The layout was perfect for our group, the location is amazing and the destination is beautiful. Tons of things to do for people of all ages, we will definitely return!

A Great Family Compound

  • 5 of 5

I invited my whole family here to celebrate my 71st birthday. This property was just perfect and well-maintained. Walking in the front door, It felt just like home! The kitchen was cheerful & fully stocked. We spent a lot of time on the front patio. Mama Bear, Baby Bears, and Grand-Baby Bears all had nice, comfortable beds to sleep in, and clean, modern bathrooms for all. It was nice to have 3 parking spots out back. The ideal location near the ferry and several markets made it even better. We enjoyed boating & exploring the Balboa area. The owners were in contact with me, & always available by phone, email or text. We are already talking about a return!

Great location, clean, well equipped.

Fantastic location. Super well equipped (I cooked dinner for 11). 3 parking spots. 3 minutes to the ferry.

We rented both front and back units. 5 br, 5 ba. Our 11 people were very comfortable.

Try it, you'll like it!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed on the island for many years. We have 10 in our party and usually have to stay in separate spots. This location and house was ideal. It offered everything we needed - much more than most rentals and was clean - great layout and easy for all ages!!! The owners were lovely. Highly recommend!

Great Place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The two houses were perfect for our family. Good location: close to ferry, new restaurant, and beaches. Fun nostalgia time for me as I grew up about two blocks from the house. So many changes since then though!
