The house is very well done- too notch everything. And the location is perfect! A half bock to the water three blocks to ferry over to Fun Zone, and a short walk to shops and restaurants. Dianne was extremely responsive to our every need.

Excellent - both in location and design. The cottage has been remodeled to perfection and is in a very convenient location within walking distance of town. Do not hesitate to book. We will be back.

This adorable home was even better than it appears in the photos! I'm a super clean freak and the house was spotless. The decor was super charming and well appointed. And the location could not have been better. We parked the car and never used it again. Dianne has created a book with recommendations which we referred to daily. And all the techie stuff in the house thrilled my 20-something kids. It could not have been more perfect. And Dianne was super easy to connect with whenever we had a question. We will be back!

Dianne was a great host. Prompt and attentive. The rental on Balboa was amazing. It's perfect in every way. Immaculate remodel. We'll be back soon. Perfect place for a long getaway with toddlers. Bring a wagon and never get in your car. The best!

Amazing home! Beautifully remodeled and perfect for a getaway. Fun location on Balboa Island that is walkable to shops and restaurants and also easily accessible by car. The house is in PERFECT shape with everything looking just as the pictures show. Parking wasn't an issue with one garage space and plenty of street parking. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms very nicely done. Home entertainment system, kitchen appliances and washer/dryer were all easy to use and the house had great wi-fi. Neighborhood is quiet and has easy access to walking path surrounding the island. Dianne was a great host -- answered questions promptly before arrival, was flexible with her time to meet us earlier than we expected, greeted us with an unexpected welcome basket of goodies and explained the house to us. This place is a great Airbnb find and we will definitely be back soon!
