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).
You can enjoy sitting on the patio or the Living room in the evening.
Interaction with guests
I am available throughout your visit for any additional questions, directions for places to dine.
Be mindful of the carpets. Rinse off sand if you are coming in from beach. No cooking privileges but feel free to put some things in refrigerator. I prefer no food in the guest room. Too many accidents.
Have a wonderful visit on Balboa Island for yet another day of paradise.
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 to Huntington Beach. I am outgoing but also respect and appreciate quiet time.
