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. Make sure you check out STAR WARS LAND! After a great day at the parks, you can return back to your beach front oasis, 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 way to get to the event. You can enjoy a nice glass of wine on the patio before your ride takes you to Laguna Beach.

Great Location
5/5 stars
We had our first stay on Balboa Island and this place did not disappoint. The host was great to work with and the place is very comfortable. It was nice having a place with A/C as well as a reserved area to park. We had an SUV car rental and had plenty of space to park. We had everything we needed while staying there and the patio is so nice to sit out on during the day and very private. The location is great, just right down from where the ferry comes in. We really enjoyed walking around the island every morning and the shops and restaurants are all very good. We are already looking forward to our next trip back!

Always Wonderful
5/5 stars
Our family vacations through iTrip on Balboa island every year. There's always fun things to do within walking distance, whether it's shopping or the beach. The condo is perfect. Everything is well put together and the air-conditioning keeps the condo the right temp all day. On the balcony, the awning provides a break from the direct sunlight and lets you enjoy time outside with family or people watching on the street. We will be back again for a 4th time soon! With such a large kitchen, there is no need to spend money eating out unless you want to.

Reliable quality and professionalism
5/5 stars
We are repeat customers with this property and recently enjoyed another fantastic week-long stay. We returned because we could count on the quality, cleanliness, and professionalism. Our expectations were fully satisfied. The kitchen and living area are recently remodeled, feeling spacious, clean, and modern. The A/C is a major plus too!

This is the 2nd time I've stayed at this charming location. Perfectly situated steps from the Ferry, so convenient to go over to the Peninsula. The balcony is nice to sit and have a cup of coffee or glass of wine. Easy walk to Marine Ave where the shops and bistros are located. The condo is light and airy, the kitchen and living room open up to the balcony.

Our Balboa Island Vacation
5/5 stars
My family love the AC from the moment we arrived. A new Keurig coffee unit and new appliances made us feel like at home. TVs we’re great, we enjoyed watching College and NFL football. The BBQ grill and gorgeous views of the boats cruising the Bay Area from the balcony we’re phenomenal. The Unit is well maintained and well supplied with everything needed for a vacation also at night is very quiet and peaceful.All the bed linens were very clean. Scott was only a text away an answer all our questions, we will reserve again this 5 star Balboa jewel.

5/5 stars
My family enjoyed a week-long stay. The property and experience was well managed, organized, friendly, and professional. You can have confidence in the amenities, service, and procedures. This upstairs unit has a great balcony. There is plenty of light and airflow throughout. The very quiet A/C per bedroom was an unusual plus for Balboa Island. The recently remodeled kitchen was awesome with plenty of space and a full array of appliances. There was some friendly daytime chatter from the restaurant next door and at night everything was perfectly quiet. We would definitely stay here again. Recommended.

We had a wonderful 4 days in Balboa! Our choice of accommodation proved to be even more than we expected. It was clean and very well appointed. We walked all over the island and it was beautiful. Having a parking place was great when we explored Newport Beach. We will definitely return.

Perfect Location. No car needed.
5/5 stars
This home is a perfect location to visit the beach. It's within walking distance to Balboa Ferry. Scott was a perfect host and even greeted us with a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates! The home is very clean and had the necessary amenities for cooking, BBQing, and relaxing. The home also provided comfy beach chairs which we used daily at the beach. I really appreciated the reserved covered parking spot too. Balboa Island is a cute community and this home was perfect for our family get away.

128 Agate!
5/5 stars
Scott and the team are awesome and extremely responsive to any and all questions. 128 Agate is an excellent location. Perfect for a super short walk to the ferry, balboa beaches or the shops and restaurants. The condo fit our family of four perfectly and has all of the accommodations you need for a wonderful week or more on balboa. The AC was a perk during a rather warm week in CA!!! The covered parking spot was an added bonus!!

Thanks for the great review! I'm happy that we made everything work out for your visit!

Great Rental
5/5 stars
This place was perfect for myself and 2 teenagers. Loved that the second bedroom had 2 beds. Starting my morning with coffee on the balcony was so nice. The location was great also because of the proximity to the ferry, we rode bikes all over Balboa Peninsula every day. The Unit had everything we needed for a week and more. Management was so nice and helpful. Thank you!

Amazing Stay on Balboa Island
5/5 stars
Great 2 week stay on the Island! Our family had an amazing time staying in the upstairs unit on Agate. There was plenty of space for everyone to hangout and relax. The huge balcony has a small, but nice view of the bay and all the passing boats. Being just steps away from the ferry, a small market and hamburger stand was very convenient! This was our second time working with Scott from iTrips, and just like last year, it was really easy! Looking forward to next year!!
- Sarkis
