WiFi sketchy but cute house
kitchen was nicely remodeled but furniture looked a little tired, we enjoyed our stay even with wifi problems, nice to walk to restaurants and we saw the full blood moon at the west end of the island, Balboa Island is a great place to stay. Frustrated when calling Turnkey as even as wife refused to talk to me, had to ridiculously hand the phone to my husband. Wifi issues remained unresolved, obviously the router is in another building and the reach was not good.

Hi Adrian, Thank you for your review and helpful feedback! We’re so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. That being said, we do apologize for the WiFi issues you encountered and for any inconvenience this caused as well. We’re a bit confused that you mention this problem was never resolved, as we show that a member of our local Field Operations Team connected with you on 2/1 and was able to provide an alternate WiFi network. Please be assured we are still following up on this issue and working closely with the homeowner on a permanent solution. If there is anything else we can still do for you, please reach out any time and let us know. -The TurnKey VR Team

We had a great time on the island. My wife grew up spending her summers on the island and it was fun to re-capture some of that for her.

Holiday Getaway with Friends
Myself and a few friends stayed at the Beach House while visiting friends that live in the area. We wanted to be close to Corona Del Mar but also get to Newport easily and be able to walk to restaurants, shops etc. The location was perfect! The home looks pretty spot on to the photos - rooms are definitely smaller then they appear, but the layout is good with one bedroom downstairs and two upstairs. The room with two beds is tight!! Probable best for kids. The best part of the house is the living space with a great fireplace and lots of windows. Overall for a house from 1929 it is in great shape! The house was very clean - but furniture has some wear and tear. Also, outside space was good size, but gardens etc could use a little love. Overall just a little more attention to these things on the part of the owners would be great - but didn't interfere with us enjoying the place.

Lovely Girls Week on the Island
We loved the house! Being on the corner with cool breezes from two sides is a plus. We enjoyed grilling and dining outside. The outside grounds could use a little love as plants are overgrown and most of the lighting does not work. The Wifi only works n the main room and kitchen and you must go thru the entire login process for each device every time you use it. Beds were super comfortable. Shopping was great! Everybody found a must have. Wilma's for breakfast! Yum. Great time for all the BFFs.

Awesome Getaway
Spent 4 nights here with two other couples. This home and the island are so charming! Clean house, comfortable beds, cute outdoor spaces and terrific location. It isn't directly on board walk but is a 2 minute walk to shops/restaurants and 5 minute walk to ferry. We got rid of rental car after day 1 and spent the rest of weekend on bikes. Only complaints: kitchen was lacking a few basics and some of the outdoor furniture is worn/broken.

Great yard, great location
The house is very charming, older but nice. Our favorite part was the fenced in yard, great for the kids to run around and to enjoy meals outdoors. Wonderful location, a quick walk to the water and to food/shopping. If we don't splurge to be right on the water we will definitely stay here again.

Balboa Island Beach Cottage
Nice little house on Balboa Island. Rooms are kinda of tight and so are the two bathrooms but it was nice to have three rooms and two bathrooms for two teenage kids and my wife and I. Laundry in garage was nice to have. Parking is on street, usually didn't have any problem finding a spot. Close to shops on Marine Ave. Easy walk to ferry. House was clean and everything worked well. One caution....it was lightly raining and I slipped on concrete steps in back of the house. Steps are painted with a tile design so I get the artistic look but I would suggest scarafyinng the paint for safety concerns. Steps are very slippery when wet. My left forearm still hurts after five days! The outside area had a few areas to sit and relax. Overall the house was great. Balboa Island and surrounding area can't be beat. Take the ferry to the peninsula - great time to be had.

Charming and Beachy
The location of this house is ideal. It sits on a corner lot and is just a few streets away from Marine Ave where all the fun shops and restaurants are. It's very charming, but very tight in the bedroom spaces. The washer and dryers are really nice and everything is very organized. The property seems to be kept up very nicely. We didn't use the kitchen, but it seems nice enough. The outdoor space is really nice with tables and chairs set up in a festive manner! I had read some mixed reviews about the management company for this property. They were perfect. No problems at all. My contract had gone to my junk mail in my email, but I called the management company and let them know and they quickly sent over a contract. They were easy to get on the phone and provided good instructions on using the property. I would stay here again!

Balboa Island Gem
i can't say enough about this property. Great location in the heart of Balboa Island. Large corner lot set up for outdoor entertaining. Perfect for family dinners under the stars and string lights. You can easily walk to any point on the island and are one block from the water. The house has recently been renovated without losing the character of the original home. Great coastal decor touches make for a warm and inviting atmosphere. Although the house is smaller we did not feel crowded at all. Comfy beds, plenty of high quality linens, games, movies and a full stocked kitchen were added bonuses. We will book this house again.

Terrific time
Description was right on as this is an original cottage with all the charm you'd expect. Great house with side yard that was super for a large family gathering and dinner . Having beach amenities such as big towels, wagon, umbrella made it nice not to have to go out to get these items. Close to Marine Street so easy walk for coffee, shopping. It is on a corner and there definitely is traffic but it's no more offensive than the 7am wake up call the airport makes when you stay on the island. Cottage was good size with 2 bathrooms and very nicely decorated and freshly painted. No air conditioning which was tough because of the unusually high temperatures but it was manageable with the many windows with screens we could leave open all day. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Balboa at its best!
We were completely captivated by the charm of this rental property. The owner has managed to retain the character of the home by adding updates that harmonize with the home's age and style. The spacious living room is enhanced by the natural sunlight, while a fireplace guarantees coziness on cooler nights. It's evident that a lot of care and consideration went into furnishing the home in a manner that perfectly captures the ambiance of Balboa Island. The renovated kitchen is perfect for a lazy morning brunch or casual meal. Those wishing to enjoy sitting outdoors can choose from comfy Adirondack chairs, a padded bench, or a bistro umbrella table located on a sunny side patio. A large picnic table accommodates a group wishing to dine Al fresco, perhaps utilizing the outdoor grill. The bedrooms all offer very comfy beds, perfect for a good nights sleep, after a day enjoying the sights and sounds of the Island. We appreciated the convenient locale, very close to the shops and restaurants , as well as the perfect starting point for touring the area. We look forward to a return visit!
