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

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!

We had the entire house and the apartment behind for my son's birthday! It was perfect for our family. The home is beautiful and has everything we needed. We will definitely be back.

Loved the home for the week!! Perfect for celebrating my husband's birthday with all the family!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this stunning home for the week in order to have our kids and grandkids join us to celebrate my husband's birthday. My husband had gone to UCI years ago and had lived on Balboa Island and we had met at college in So Cal so it was fun to get back and share the experience of the area with our kids. The location of the house was perfect. We were just a half block to the Balboa Ferry which we took each day over to Newport Beach Area.

In the morning we would walk down to main street, grab a coffee and pastry (the area has so many quaint cafe's, bakeries and shops!) and then walk around the Island. So beautiful! So relaxing! The people are so friendly and welcoming!

The home accommodated our gang perfectly and was clean and had everything we needed. The beds were cozy, plenty of towels for everyone, great space for socializing. There's a grill available for use and was perfect for grilling out one night. There was even beach toys, beach chairs and beach towels available for use on the days we headed over to Newport Beach. So helpful when traveling by plane and not able to bring all that beach stuff.

Our kids loved their time here. We will definitely be back! Thank you Stephanie for all your help in making our time at your beach home so special!
