5/5 Excellent

My wife and I loved our stay here! Great location, host was very responsive and attentive, and all the amenities you could ask for! If I were to be picky, I’d say the shower was a bit small for someone my size (6’2”) but again, that’s me being really picky! We would definitely recommend this place!!

A repeat booking, I love this place!
This rental is just lovely. Balboa Island is a special place and this is a wonderful one bedroom beach cottage to enjoy the island. The location is fantastic, very close and walkable to Marine Ave (the Main Street on the island where you can go to many different restaurants, coffee shops, etc. the host is so hospitable and kind, and left wine, cheese and snacks upon arrival. I hope to be back again soon and would love to stay here again!

Sweet and Comfy Cottage
After a long day of travel, we were so happy to find this cottage welcoming and adorably decorated with a tasteful beach theme. The host left us wonderful charcuterie goodies and a bottle of champagne in the fridge. Lots of fluffy pillows and blankets, soft towels and super comfy bed. The sweet deck was the perfect place to relax and plan our next adventure for the day. Close enough for a quick walk to the main street for shopping and restaurants but still tucked away on a quiet alley. We can’t wait to go back!
