The space

Located in the heart of beautiful Balboa Island this charming beach cottage ROOM is a two-minute stroll to the bay and a three minute ferry ride to the ocean. I am about 15 minutes from John Wayne Airport and about the same to get to the 405 freeway. There is usually parking on the street which is narrow by most peoples standards but still doable. If you can't find parking on the street, I have an extra space behind my garage. All parking on the Island is free. Sorry, NO CHILDREN, NO PETS. Light breakfast of fruit bowl provided. Coffee or tea. NO COOKING privileges.

Balboa Island is an idyllic place pulled straight out of a travel magazine. Walk to the beach, have dinner by the bay, go fishing, rent a kayak or Bike or a electric duffy boat, take a stroll along the boardwalk, 2 1/2 miles completely around the island makes for a fabulous walk morning or evening. Check out the Island homes and lovely gardens. Go surfing, enjoy the restaurant at the end of the pier, play games at the "fun-zone," or take a ferris wheel ride to see the view or just sit out on the patio with a drink and enjoy the sunshine or sunset.
It's a beautiful, peaceful little spot of paradise with access to all of the fun of Southern California.

You'll be staying in my guest room on the first floor. It has a new, queen-size bed. You'll have your own private bathroom connected directly to the room access to living room and patio. The house has Wi-Fi. No TV in the room but one in family room. No cable though but local channels and PBS.

I take pride in my home, keeping it immaculate, and I ask that you please be respectful as you would of your own mother's home (or maybe, more appropriately, of someone else's mother's home).

Everything about our stay with Linda was perfect. We were a little apprehensive about staying at a stranger’s house but by the end of our stay Linda felt like family. The location and surrounds can only be described as a little piece of heaven and Linda couldn’t have been more he…

Balboa Island is a very special place. It takes little more than a welcoming host and a location such as this - a short walk to the ferry, the beaches, etc., to take full advantage of all it has to offer. Linda is warm, friendly and knowledgable about the island. Her home is coz…

We had a wonderful stay at Linda’s place. Even though it was just a bedroom in the house we still felt like we had a very private stay. Linda provided us with coffee and fruit in the mornings which was a great touch. The island is beautiful and the place is only about a 15 min wa…

Active lady and 40 year Island resident. Very familiar with the area, local restaurants. Know most of my neighbors and enjoy meeting new people. I work on and off the Island, love my daily walks on the boardwalk. Can't wait for a lovely warm & sunny day to kayak the bay or bike …
