We enjoyed our time staying at this property and the surrounding area of Balboa Island. The location and outdoor sitting area was awesome. The property was also big enough to accommodate our family. However, the property was dirty and had many things broken. We had very few clean towels and had no kitchen towels. The property owner did bring us kitchen towels during our stay. The floors were beyond dirty- we lifted the rug in the kitchen to sweep after dinner and it was full of sand and dirt from previous renters. We were unable to clean the floors ourself because there was no vacuum or mop. There was also an ant problem. We bought $400 in groceries when we arrived. The next morning all of our food in the pantry was infested with ants and had to be thrown away.

The property was amazing and worked perfectly for you family. Absolutely loved the location. Such a quiet street. Tho, I am sad to say that there was a lack of detail to the property maintanence...light bulbs burned out everywhere (one of the bathroom vanity, making it impossible to put on makeup, drain in one shower not draining properly, just to name a couple of things. Not sure they will be taken care of before the next guest(s) arrive even tho the owner said they would be as he was leaving town the day before we left and next guests coming in directly behind our departure. Didn't really seem that the property owner even knew what was there or was not.

This was our first time staying on Balboa Island. We thoroughly enjoyed this property and highly recommend it. The location worked well for our entire family. Lots of things to do close by. Very clean home and located in a safe area. Hope to be back soon!

Great property in a great location - quiet side of the island, very close to the ferry and easy access to Newport Beach and fun zone. Garage access made up for tight parking. Three generous bedrooms, two large showers and lots of sitting areas. Heated patio was a favorite at night.

Super clean, comfortable and perfect location to ferry, convenient store, coffee. The house was perfect for 4 adults and 3 kids and plenty of room to spread out! We spent lots of time in kitchen and patio. Jimmy was VERY attentive, accommodating and quick to respond. . He even brought us a brand new Keurig down when the old one failed. We will be back!

Everything was excellent. Huge house, lots of room for everyone. There was no outdoor fire pit as shown in pictures. The location was perfect, close to ferry; park, and a convenience store. Quiet street. We hope to return.

My company rented this property for myself and two other employees. We rented this lovely cottage for it’s location to the job site where we were working. It was an excellent location. It provided the sleeping accommodations for three adult males; however the downstairs powder room was not a viable option for use. Luckily, the other two employees did not mind sharing a bathroom. It would also be helpful knowing which light switch operated which lights in the house. I was spending quite a bit of time every night trying to shut off lights. But both these were extremely minor inconveniences. The one thing renters should be informed about is to be prepared to bring supplies such as toilet paper, paper towels, coffee filters, and etc. It was just like going to my family’s vacation cabin, where I bring those essentials with me when I plan on a stay there. Wasn’t a problem for me; since there is a Pavilions grocery store not too far away. Most definitely would stay at this location again. It is a lovely place to stay on Balboa.
