Why Balboa Island? A one-of-a-kind, man-made treasure, Balboa Island is a gem whether you drive, walk, bike or take the Balboa Island Ferry to the island. Balboa Island’s Marine Avenue is home to chic coastal shops featuring unique nautical designs, stylish beach fashions, art and jewelry. It’s also home to quaint Balboa Island restaurants and bistros serving up a variety of dishes bursting with flavor. The selections on Balboa Island go beyond the local fresh seafood of the day with flavors of Italian, Mexican, and French-Swiss mixed in to the culinary choices.

There may be nothing more iconic than the island’s two famous desserts, the Balboa Bar and Frozen Banana. The local sweet tooth treasures have been mainstays for nearly 75 years, and have been imitated and replicated, including on the hit TV show “Arrested Development.” The tasty treats are dipped in chocolate and covered with a variety of coatings from nuts and sprinkles to cookie crumbs.

If you want to visit the DISNEYLAND RESORT area, our property is located just under 20 miles to the resort and it's two main parks - DISNEYLAND and DISNEY'S CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE. After a great day at the parks, you can return back to your villa, refresh, relax, and take a stroll down to the beach.

If you are interested in the Laguna Beach PAGEANT OF MASTERS during July, this is a fantastic place to stay. Lyft or Uber is the easiest way to get to the event. You can enjoy a nice glass of wine on the balcony before your ride picks you up and takes you to Laguna Beach.

Additional local attractions include Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm (included in the FREE FUN package), Aquarium of the Pacific, South Coast Plaza, and Fashion Island.

But a trip to Balboa Island wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Balboa Fun Zone or the Peninsula, where the Ferris wheel has stood for more than 80 years, and the world famous Balboa Island Ferry. The Ferry is about 10 minute walk from the cottage.

This cottage can also be rented in conjunction with the front unit for larger families. We do allow pets for a fee to offset the extra cleaning.

This is our second time back to the cottage on Balboa Island. With the upgrades the Scott has made our time there was even more enjoyable than the first. Location, privacy, and price make this an ideal vacation spot. Our first visit was at Christmas, so we were able to view all the decorations and lights as we walked each night and then on a boat ride of the area. This time were were lucky enough to be there when The Balboas Island yearly Parade was held. What fun we had watching the residents put on a great show with dancing in the street to a great local band. We have fond memories of our borrowed little piece of paradise and look forward to future visits.

We stayed three nights in this lovely rental and found everything spic and span, functional and well-equipped. The location (2 and a half blocks from Marine Avenue) is ideal as everything on Balboa Island is walking distance. There was one small issue with the faucet in the bathroom and the management was very responsive and quickly got things in order. My wife and I are looking forward to our next stay.

We stay in Newport often. This place was clean and simple. The host was helpful. The best thing about this property is the location....2 blocks to the main street. Having parking was great as well.

Just as described and a great value. It was clean, comfortable, and stocked for a quick weekend. It was basic, but priced right.

Check in and check out was very easy. The house is situated in an great location. The best part was a parking spot. Plenty of bed space for the adults and the kids. The kitchen was stocked with all the things you need to cook. There are sea kayaks to use.
