About Karen & George Watson
Hello, We are Karen and George Watson. You can learn more about us at our professional website...thebusinesspsychologist.com. We have raised our five children on Balboa Island. We logged many hours sitting on the sand at the end of the street when they were small and watched them learn to surf, swim, row, scuba dive etc... When they grew up we remodeled the house and moved to Montana, where we enjoy riding our horses. We could not leave the Island and our children insist on visiting; so we now have a weekly vacation rental. We hope you and your family will make many wonderful memories here as well.
Why Karen & George Watson chose Balboa Island
This is our home when we come to California. We keep it spotless,decorated and well appointed with amenities. We cook in the kitchen, BBQ on the patio, enjoy walking the quiet end of the island. Hopefully, our personal touch will make your stay like family.
What makes this House unique
We mostly rent to people who return year- after-year to stay in our home. They often feel it is their personal vacation second home. People come from Europe and some from a nearby cities, to enjoy the beach. We hope you will become one of our extended families.

Memorable Week on Balboa Island!
We had a wonderful visit and truly enjoyed the hospitality of the owner in all ways. The home had plenty of room for our family, a lovely front patio and bbq
Enjoyed our stay
We spent the week over July 4th and had a great time. The location was great and the house was very clean. It had everything we needed. No complaints.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home. Every detail was included, and the location is great! We will certainly rent here again when we make plans to return to California. It was truly a delightful escape!
We were so happy to return to this wonderful home. Spotless clesn, well maintained. Big kitchen which is great because I love to cook. Beds comfy. Great tv room proximity to the water, nice neighbors. We love it
Very comfortable home away from home
We stayed for 1 week in December with our family
Extremely comfortable home
Balboa Island is one of seven islands located in upscale Newport Harbor. All of this is often called Newport Beach. Balboa Island is special with a small town charm.
From Balboa Island you can walk and ride a small 3 car and pedestrian ferry to the Pacific Ocean. In 5 minutes you will be on Balboa Penninsula and then it's a short walk to the Pacific Ocean. Here you can rent boats, bikes, surf and ride the waves.
Or you can relax in our comfortable Victorian Beach house and play, sun and swim at the beach on the bay, located four doors from our home. BBQ on our patio. A boardwalk encircles Balboa Island for a pleasant 1.7 mile walk. Add a .79 extra bit to your walk, if you bought a Balboa ice cream bar on your walk!
Lots of shops and restaurants on the main street, called Marine Ave., for you to enjoy and on your walk.
Newport Beach is located on the Pacific Ocean between San Diego and Los Angeles. We are near many attractions such as Laguna Beach, Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, LEGOLAND, South Coast Plaza (major shopping/restaurants), Newport Center (more major shopping/restaurants). You can take a ferry to Catalina Island-26 miles across the sea! Lots of free public tennis courts, run in the back bay or bird watch etc...
