Fantastic Beach House!

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the 1917 Balboa beach house the week of August 11-18, 2012! It was clean, stocked with all of the necessities and the location was excellent! We were literally steps from the beach, rented our bikes and boards from the friendly bike rental across the street and had one of the best vacations of our lives. The weather was perfect, the water was beautiful and the location of the beach house allowed us to walk the pier and local fun businesses each day. The home was comfortable, roomy and had everything we needed. We were fortunate to meet the owners and extended family, who added an extra special touch to our vacation with their friendliness and made us feel at home at all times. We will definitely rent again next summer and hope to make this a yearly event!

Great Beach Pad

Great beach pad - a hop, skip, jump to the sand and all the shops, and restaurants. Good for a family of four (downstairs unit). Perfect for our needs and in great condition. Audre was great to work with and accomodated us at the very last minute. Thanks for helping us to have a great week at the beach :)

Summer time

We stayed in the upper unit which was 2 bed, 1 bath with a large living area. The unit was clean and the owner and family were extremely nice and easy to work with. We had a great time and were within walking distance from downtown and the beach. We will definately be going back!!!
