  • Great Location; Charming Bungalow

    "Stayed at the Red Room for three days in October with a friend and thought everything was perfect. We enjoyed the proximity to town and the beach. We only took the car out to drive outside of Laguna. We appreciated the two bedrooms being separated with their own bathrooms. The views from the house are lovely and it is pretty private (neighbors on one side only). I also liked listening to the church bells chiming on the hour."

  • Perfect Location, quaint and kid-friendly

    "We had a wonderful time on Balboa Island for Spring Break. The house was just perfect for us. Quaint and cute, with all the amenities you would need. It wasn't some grandeur palace that made me on guard with my 6 and 3 year old. The convenience to the ferry was a huge bonus, it also may have made us spend a few extra $$ on arcade games and rides for our kids : ). The house had everything you needed to enjoy a week away. It was the perfect beach bungalow style home that I remembered as a kid. You can feel the nostalgia inside from the family photos placed around the house. This is a home the Landis family cherishes - and shares with others to make their own wonderful memories. And we did just that...so thank you!"

  • Perfect Long Beach Vacation!

    "My family was in Long Beach for a dance convention. My older daughter and I would go to the dance convention each day while my husband and younger daughter would enjoy checking out Long Beach or playing on the beach in front of the condo. The condo was immaculate! It was SO clean, fresh and cool when we arrived! Air conditioning throughout was a major bonus although it was never oppressively hot out. The room darkening shades in the bedrooms made it easy for us to sleep well every night (which says a lot for a family coming from the mountains with NO neighbors, lots of dark and quiet). Street noise was not bothersome or noticeable to this mountain gal or my kids! The condo was well stocked with kitchen supplies (even tupperware and ziplocs!), beach towels, beach toys, beach chairs, beach umbrella, bath towels and hairdryers!! The view was unbeatable and we enjoyed having morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the beach. I saw other comments that the bathrooms need updating, but I guess I'm old school~I find the features in the baths charming and a statement to the character of when the building was built. Plus, you can tell the owners are working their way through updates throughout the unit and I wouldn't be surprised if bathroom remodels were coming sometime in the future. I, for one, was just fine with the bathrooms as they were very clean, had lots of towels and washcloths, and hairdryers. Mark and Lorrie were a joy to work with. Mark walked us through everything we needed to know at check in and really made sure we "got it" in concerns to parking, key codes, and helping maintain the building and our unit. The added bonus of laundry detergent and quarters for your first load was huge since we had just come from Disneyland and had lots of laundry to do. Mark also gave us some great restaurant and activity recommendations. Dinner at King's Fish House was a highlight. I went on several walks and always felt safe on the beach bath and around town. Lorrie was helpful and responsive to any questions or requests we had and I loved how quickly she always got back to me. With a great location on the beach, awesome amenities throughout, close to the convention center in a vivacious town at such a great price we are looking forward to coming back!!"

  • Lovely home!

    "This was an exceptional vacation rental! It was spotless when we arrived (inside and out), the furnishings and finishes are high quality and the location is fabulous -- just across the street from an calm, clean beach. I wouldn't consider staying any place else on Balboa!"
