Long Weekend on Balboa This is a charming historic cottage on the island, perfect for small family or people planning to be on the go. Written communication was great leading up to our stay, but when we ran into access problems no one returned our calls. We left messages on the "emergency" line and never received a return call. Our entire stay of 5 days!!! We will not rent with this group again.

Quaint cabin near the beach In general, this little beach house met our needs. It was immaculate, which I appreciated. It was also sufficiently equipped. But it was bare bones. The kitchen was very small and I had a hard time finding things because it was so dark in the cupboards and they were so hard to access. The television is basic only. And given we were there during college bowl season, the lack of ESPN was an issue for a member of our family. Given the expense per night, a larger selection of channels is assumed. <br/><br/>There was a maintenance issue with the heater when we arrived, but the property management firm handled it promptly and professionally. It ended up having minimal impact on our stay. <br/><br/>The property is well-located on Balboa island. A few blocks from downtown. A few blocks from the ferry. We did appreciate this aspect of it. <br/><br/>We would recommend this property with the caveats noted above.

Beautiful Bungalow Our stay at the Ruby bungalow was fantastic. We stayed during a holiday and we were especially happy with how well the kitchen was equipped. During the week we were there the property management dropped off even more items for our use as it was a holiday week. Having plenty of space for our family was wonderful. The place was clean and well maintained. Instructions and communication from the management company was excellent and much appreciated. We will be booking this home again soon.

Birthday Celebration We celebrated my husband's 70th birthday on Balboa. Sitting outside enjoying morning coffee, and wine at night was enjoyable. The cottage was in a perfect location to walk anywhere; stores, restaurants, beach. TV, basic cable and apps, did not work in all locations; i.e. living room. Feeling the breeze and having all the windows open was enjoyable. Just an FYI,the cottage is in the direct take-off flight path of John Wayne Airport. You do hear the jets constantly during the day.

Great Location but needs Major TLC Pros: <br/>-Staying on Balboa Island (instead of the craziness of the peninsula) was a good fit for our family.<br/>-Ruby Street itself is the only street on the island to have a beach (on the bay) with calm water, roped off from boat traffic, that is great for little ones . <br/>-Marine Street (main street with shops and restaurants) is a 10 minute walk.

There is a barometer inside the house which consistently showed the living room being at or just over 80 degrees. This was the COOLEST part of the home. We opened every window and door we could, ran fans, and it was still very uncomfortable. I would not stay here in the summer if you have a baby or elderly person in your group.<br/><br/>-The master bedroom had a very strong smell of mildew that never entirely went away, despite opening up the house everyday. It was particularly strong in the closet. (I suspect there was water damage at some point.) <br/><br/>-201 Ruby is at the corner of Ruby and Park Ave. Park Ave. is one of the busiest streets on the island. You will have constant loud traffic/noise going past the house, (motorcycles, bikes, etc.) <br/><br/>-There is construction (a new home build) right across the street. The work started just after 7 every weekday and on Saturday. We are early risers, so the noise didn't wake us, but the constant hammering and sawing was incredibly annoying.<br/><br/>*The house has an insect problem, specifically, with roaches. I saw 5 roaches outside (near the grill and back door.) The night before we left, I found 2 live roaches INSIDE the house. Contacted property management 2x - no response.* Response from Newport Beach Vacation Properties; Wednesday, August 14, 2019 Hi Sarah, We're so glad you enjoyed the great location on Balboa Island.

Great location--Balboa Island family fun We were looking for a family friendly, affordable cottage for a family get together and this fit the bill. It is cozy. It was clean and the tiny kitchen was well stocked. The garage and laundry facilities were a plus as was the keyless entry. We found street parking as well. The property management people were responsive. The only reason I give it a 4 star rating is that the lighting was very dim so it was difficult to read in the cottage which I love to do on vacation. Because it was Christmas week, I didn't think to call the property manager about this but she indicated that they would have provided better lighting if they had been informed...and that is customer service.
