Best home on Balboa Island!
A beautiful home.l! Equipped for everything you might need or desire!... plus it is a wonderful location close to shopping, the Balboa ferry, & the mainland amenities (terrific restaurants). We had the best time!
I would definitely rent this property again.
So happy you enjoyed the house!! Would love to have you back!
It was a fantastic time...we all enjoyed it thoroughly.
Sheila, the owner, is so helpful and kind...and has literally thought of every convenience for her renters! The house is adorable and so very clean. This was very important to me when I was looking for our rental, and it exceeded my expectations. The beds were so comfortable, as well! You can tell she takes great pride in her house...My family can’t wait to rent here again...and I grew up in Balboa, so I already knew that was the best! 😊�
Thank you Diana,
We would love to have your family back!
Beautiful and comfortable home
We really enjoyed our extended weekend in Balboa! The house is the perfect walking distance to just about everything and has a bonus of parking in the garage! The host has planned for every activity and provided bikes, paddle boards, beach chairs and even a kiddie pool for my two year old daughter! The interior of the house is beautifully decorated with comfy furniture and beds and entertainment options in every room! We were even entertained on a rainy, gloomy night! I can’t wait to stay here again!
Thanks Amber! So glad you had fun and look forward to having you back!
The BEST home to rent on Balboa Island!
I can't say enough wonderful things about this home! My goal was to find the perfect home to have a pre-wedding girls getaway for my daughter and family and I found it! From beginning to end Sheila made our time at her home awesome. She offered fantastic referrals for an afternoon at the spa and local restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed the fun toys that came with her home - the bicycles (so great, we used them every day), beach chairs, beach umbrella and kayaks! We were just steps away from the beach and enjoyed taking the bikes on the ferry over to Newport where we rode along the strand. And the home! - so cute, so comfortable, so beautifully renovated and so CLEAN! Sheila even made sure to offer a crib knowing that my 2 month old granddaughter was part of our girls weekend as well! The ambiance of the home was so appreciated and the front porch was the perfect outdoor space to relax. I was already looking at my calendar before we left to see when I can come back again ! Thanks so much Sheila, your home is a gem!
I’m so happy that you all had such a great mother daughter weekend!!! Those are the best. Thanks so much for writing such a glowing review. I look forward to having you back! Sheila
Wonderful stylish cottage home in perfect location...spotless and well-equipped with everything!
Our family had a terrific stay here. We were very comfortable in the house. We loved Balboa Island---quaint and walkable---and short drive to beautiful Laguna Beach attractions. We would stay again without hesitation!
A wonderful home in fabulous location
Ideal location close to water and easy walking distance to all that Balboa Island has to offer, including super breakfast at Wilma's and the neat boutique shops. Home is very comfortable in all respects. Thank you, Sheila, for making our stay so warm and welcoming!
Thank you for such a nice review, looking forward to having your family back!
