Fun property - short walk to shops and restaurants. Kayaks and paddle boards included. Lovely patio to watch the world go by.

We enjoyed the spaciousness of the property both inside and outside on the patio. There was room for all of us to relax and enjoy. Brad is a friendly and accomodating host. We appreciated the use of all of the water toys that he made available for us. The location is ideal...directly on North Bayfront with the sand and water just across the sidewalk from the house. Our children spent a lot of time playing there while we could keep an eye on them from the front patio.

You can’t beat the location of this charming rental on Balboa Island. It’s right on the beach and you can sit out on the porch and watch the boats, watch the world world walk past. The interior has not been updated since the 60s or 70s. One of the bathrooms upstairs has a door that will not close all the way. The circular staircase to the second floor is very steep, so be aware if you have visitors with mobility issues. The owner lives on site in a unit attached to the house, so he met us on arrival (I prefer contactless check-in). One of the locks to the house was not working and would not open using the code. The rental info specified 2 carport parking spaces, but the owner had his car in one of the spaces. Check-out was 10am. The owner texted me multiple times asking if we would leave early. I said no, but the cleaners still walked in at 9:30am, catching a female guest in the shower and scaring her badly.

Fantastic home! Five stars is an understatement. This is THE place to stay on Balboa. From the perfect location, water toys, home comfort, excellent beds, stocked kitchen, lovely patio, ease of everything and fantastic host in Brad, who is a fun, genuine person and very accommodating, this home is more than we expected. My wife and two daughters (and small dog, who loved Brad) had a great time. My wife was just telling me she wished we would have discovered this gem and met Brad years ago. We were so sad to leave lovely this home. There is no doubt we plan to stay here again. You will be happy you booked this place, just please do not take my week. Thank you for allowing us to make great memories, Brad.

This was the perfect house for our family's spring break! The house has everything you can want to enjoy beautiful Balboa Island... SUPs, Kayaks, sand toys, beach chairs, games and a beach front location! The bedrooms are very large with comfortable beds. The kitchen is well stocked. We cooked and grilled a couple nights and we had everything we needed. Brad was so responsive and was a super easy check in. We will definitely be back!

Not sure if you could find a better location. House is on the water, adjacent to Ruby beach, easy walk to town, and easy walk to the ferry. The house is older, but it had everything we needed. Upstairs was very comfortable and fit our family of seven very well, which is hard to do. Owner was super responsive whenever we needed anything, which wasn't very often. Owner's home is on the same property, but it was completely separate, and the owner was not at his home during our stay. This rental is likely our top choice for our next trip to the island.

I stayed here with my family for a few weeks this winter and couldn’t have been happier. The house is a charming old beach house with tons of character that they just don’t make anymore. The location is ideal on the quieter side of the island, and right next to one of the best stretches of beach for the kids. The house has everything you could want - paddle boards, kayaks, BBQ and patio. Inside everything is clean and works great. Beds and bedding were new and very comfortable, newer TVs, strong internet, and a great host, who made sure everything went smoothly. I wish I could stay longer!

Beautiful home with a great view of the bay with kayaks and paddles boards at our disposal. This was our first time renting on the island during the Christmas season. Perfect home for viewing the boat parade or just relaxing by a cozy fireplace. Within walking distance of shops, restaurants, markets, and was able to fit 2 SUV’s in the carport. Our host was always quick to respond to any questions we might have. Perfect home for family gatherings!

A nostalgic flashback to a time when life was slower and quieter.
