  • 50th Wedding Anniversary at Balboa Island Bay Front Beauty!

    "This week celebration far exceeded our expectations in every way possible. Beginning with our wonderful greeting by Shelley. She made us feel right at home giving us a tour of her"Beyond Beautiful Home". EVERYTHING was PERFECT from the home, location, Duffy, golf cart, bike, kayaks, spa with a view beyond belief, comfy beds, kitchen with every spice & utensil you could think of. Our cars never left there parking spots! (except when our son-in-law & youngest grandson went to an Angel Game!!! You either walk or cruise in the Duffy. This was our family's 8th year on the Island and by far THE BEST.......Thank You so much!"

  • Old School Balboa Island Charm

    "We were at the tail end of a house remodel and intended to stay here a week. But as many house remodel delays go, we stayed here for a full month. We REALLY liked this house. It worked well for our family of five (16, 14, and 10 year old kids). It has beach cottage charm. Everything worked great. Below is a quick list of pros and cons: Pros: Clean and beautiful and everything worked Parking (driveway) - This cannot be overstated. You can usually find a spot on the street but with two cars it was nice to know that there was always a spot for one of us to park in the driveway. Backyard - This is one of the few houses on the island with a full size backyard. We celebrated a birthday in the backyard with 19 people and it was great. Location - It is only three houses from the beach. We were able to transport our kayaks and paddle boards to the beach with relative ease. It is also only two blocks from main street and convenient for after dinner Balboa Bar/Frozen Banana runs. Last, the location makes it pretty easy to get on and off the island pretty quickly. Owner/Manager - We had a few correspondences with both the owner and property manager. They are both wonderful and accommodating. Cons (these were not a big deal for our family but they are worth noting): Stairs - The stairs are moderately narrow. However, they have handrails on either side that make it easier to get up for us older folks. Bathroom - There are two bathrooms. There is one bathroom upstairs that is a jack and jill bathroom to two bedrooms. That bathroom only has a bathtub (no shower). The bathroom downstairs has a shower and it is a good shower. In conclusion, we loved this house. It still has the beach cottage feel. It is not a ritzy house with sub zero refrigerators and viking ovens. However, it is clean, comfortable, and an overall great place."

  • Great place to vacation!!

    "Barbara - your house was delightful!! Had so much fun there - was a beautiful refuge after days of out and around. Just stunning! The island is just adorable and loved my walks and riding bikes on the peninsula. I just checked out with David a few minutes ago. We loved your place and made every attempt to leave it as lovely as possible:) Thanks again!"

  • Excellent property and location!

    "I live on Balboa Island and rented the lower unit of this property for my relatives visiting from England. They absolutely loved it! They said the beds were more comfy than theirs at home, and they loved being close to all the shops on Marine. The large living area at the front of the house is a wonderful gathering area and the large Smart TV was a hit. Lori was so sweet and easy to work with, and was always very responsive. The place is appointed very nicely and is very clean. I would definitely recommend it!"
