Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first visit to the "Cottage" on Balboa Island and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The accommodations were just as we expected. And, everything was exceptionally clean and very new. The location near the Main Street of town was very convenient. We were within just a few blocks of many fun shops and restaurants. And, we were very close to the wonderful walkway that circles the island. Jodi, the owner, couldn't have been more gracious. She called us both before our visit to see if we had any questions and she provided lots of useful information. After our visit, she called to ask for feedback. We will definitely return in the future.

Rare find for just 2 people!

Great little place just right for 2 people...clean and cute, great windows to let lots of light in! So enjoyed our time there...convenient to town. Walked the island and loved all of it. Highly recommend this little compact home away from home.

Excellent Business Trip Stay

  • 5 of 5

No issues with the internet. High speed modem, printer,scanner, copier. All that one needs for a productive stay if needed. Sometimes internet modems can get hung up and resetting them does the trick.

Loved The Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on Balboa Island. Jodi was great in accepting our last minute reservation and went to bat to make sure we could get in the cottage at the last minute she was amazing to deal with.

The cottage has a lovely beachy feeling, very clean, newly remodelled and the kitchen is well stocked. We had dinner three evenings at home during our stay.

The location is great we could walk to all the shops, StarBucks every morning for coffee and to dinner. It is a super location to everything Balboa Island has to offer.

My only recommendation please upgrade the internet connection I thought I was back on dial up it was painfully slow.
