  • Best Family Vacation Ever!

    "The reviews were accurate, this place is PEFECT for a family vacation! Two things sold us on this place, 1) the location between both piers, and 2) the patio and bbq, and after working with Jim (the relator), I'd have to say he's the third reason you want this place! Ok yeah, the appliances and furnishings were a little dated (brand new fridge and bbq) but EVERYTHING worked just fine - honestly we bbq'd every afternoon and evening anyway so rarely needed the oven/stove or microwave. The house sleeps 12 comfortably. It has a nice flat screen in the family room (with HBO), and wireless internet access which came in handy. A nice large dining room table to use for playing games or meals ... we ate outside most of the time on the patio table. the master bedroom has a superb view and a little patio of it's own that you can enjoy an ocean view while having your coffee in the morning. I would recommend you pick up you food and drinks at Costco prior to checking in as the Von's Pavilion was the only grocery store nearby and we found them to be a bit pricey. Also, plan on bringing any special herbs and spices as there was just the basic in the cupboards (we left a few extra spices to help build up the options). Another great thing is that Jim provides parking for two vehicles in a garage! A huge bonus that came in handy as everyone was jockeying for parking spots on the street. All in all, I would HIGHLY recommend you consider this property first - I know we plan to stay again next year around the same time and I'll probably book it a year in advance so no one snatches it up. Thanks for a great time Jim! My family loved the vacation!"

  • Great Vacation Home!!

    "This is our 2nd stay at Casa de Balboa. Last time we stayed in the upstairs 3-bed unit. This time we stayed at the downstairs 2-bed unit. Pam has the finest accommodations in any Newport Beach condo we have ever rented. The towels and bedding are first class hotel quality. The kitchen is fully equipped with cooking tools to make any dinner you desire. The condo is just beautiful and close to everything. This location is just a block from the pier and there is a Farmer's Market every Sunday morning. We walked to the market, did our shopping and carried our produce just a block back to the condo. One garage space is provided. Parking is very limited to non-existent on the street. I do not recommend bringing a 2nd vehicle as you will have a lot of problems finding a "free" parking space on the curb as the area residents use the street parking for "long term parking/storage" of their extra vehicles. There are a few paid parking spaces, but we never tried to use these as we were able to fit our minivan in the garage (barely). The area has always seemed very safe, but we did have a little scare one night. We were sleeping with our slider open and a stranger "mistakenly" entered our bedroom at 4:30 in the morning while we slept. Our dog barked like crazy and woke us up and we screamed at the "visitor" and he quickly and quietly left. Therefore, we don't recommend sleeping with any windows or doors open. This might be an issue with no air conditioning in the warmer summer months. There are two sets of gates between the street and the back courtyard and the "visitor" walked through both sets of gates to gain access our open patio door. I spoke with Pam the next morning and It is believed it was an intoxicated local resident who may have mistook our condo for his, but nevertheless, it scared the bejezus out of us. There is a pole you can put in the sliding door track that keeps the door open a 4 inch crack and prevents the door opening any further. We would gladly return, but we would only stay in the upstairs unit because of our late-night scare."

  • Great yard and Location

    "We had a great time at this rental..We picked it because of the yard for our little poodle. The house itself was fine. The kitchen was great and had everything we needed..There are two nice bedrooms and two full baths. We happened to hit some very hot weather and the ac units really came in handy...We were able to walk to the pier and restaurants there..Nice walk back up the hills to the house. Be sure to read street cleaning signs if you or guests park on the street. San Clemente is a cute beach town with beautiful views and great parks, walking path and convenient access to the outlet mall and Interstate 5.."

  • Great place to stay in a great location!

    "We enjoyed a comfortable stay in this perfect location in Laguna Beach, within walking distance to all that Laguna Beach has to offer! The apartment was clean, well maintained, quiet atmosphere, and in a great neighborhood."
