About Lori Cuccia
We want this to be a place you and your family find relaxing and fun! Our home is for you to enjoy and create wonderful memories with family and friends. We are Southern California natives. We love the beach and we have always found Balboa to be happy and full of charm!
Lori Cuccia purchased this House in 2016
Why Lori Cuccia chose Balboa Island
Location is what this has! 1/2 block to all the restaurants and shopping. The Rooftop Deck is relaxing and spectacular day and night with all the stars. This has a wood burning fireplace, open concept kitchen living room and bar seating and it has AC/Heat! One car garage parking and it is very bright and comfortable.
What makes this House unique
Love that it has 2 outside living areas. One off the front door with seating for two and a gas bbq, the other is the rooftop deck which is private and spacious. Perfect for dining, drinks, relaxing or napping! Both are for this rental only.

Everything about this experience was wonderful. The island is great, the beach house was light, airy, tactfully decorated and very very comfortable. The owner is so sweet. She left us goodies from the local bakery. 5 stars all the way.
Perfect home away from home
We stayed in Lori's top floor unit for a month when our first grandchild was born. It was super convenient to zip up Jamboree to see our sweet family in Irvine while also having time to ourselves on lovely Balboa Island. Lori was a delightful host and easy to contact. She welcomed us with some coffee and treats and the kitchen was generously equipped with basics such as a new sponge, paper towels, dw detergent, storage bags, salt & pepper, and garbage bags. Other than laundry detergent and our own food & beverage, we were set. We enjoyed cooking in as much as eating out. The house is a bit dated but it is comfortable, tastefully decorated and appears to have been lovingly cared for; plus, the roof deck is terrific! The layout works fine for a close group of friends or family. We loved the location, the parking, and the Island, and would return in a heart beat!
It is an old time beach house with lots of lights
This was my second time staying here and I love the place. It is not all glass and steel like so many of the remodeled places on the Island but warm and comfortable.
I like to cook and the kitchen is a good size for multiple people working in the kitchen
You can walk every where
Be sure to enjoy the roof top deck
Lori is always prompt in her replies
Great for families!
We had a wonderful family vacation staying here! There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and we loved the character of the house. It was extremely clean and Lori was very easy to work with and get ahold of. She answered all our questions and gave us some great recommendations. We will definitely be back!
Perfect family getaway spot
This was the perfect place for us to stay with our family. My husband and I used to live on the island when our girls were younger and we wanted to come back and make some new memories with our grandkids. Lori was awesome and answered all our questions right away. We plan on making this an annual tradition. Thanks so much Lori!! XO
Very clean and comfortable cottage with an amazing location!
We came here on a family vacation, and it was our first time staying on Balboa Island. This upstairs cottage was the perfect location! It is a block from the main street of restaurants and shops and only two blocks from the water. You can also walk to the ferry and go to the main beach without ever needing a car. The cottage is super cute and has very comfortable beds. We cooked dinner and ate on the rooftop deck most nights. Lori was also extremely responsive and helpful! The upstairs unit also has AC, which can be hard to find. We hope to come back and stay again next year.
