Quaint cabin near the beach

         
Review by
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. 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. 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. We would recommend this property with the caveats noted above.

Best kept Secret on the Island

         
Review by Cherie T.
Cute cabin with everything you need! I wanted a quiet place to recharge and this place hit the Mark. Adorable character and AWESOME fireplace!!!! I loved it! Ruby house will definitely be a tradition every year. Plenty of space and the garage is very clean and convenient. Close to EVERYTHING even a market near by and the home sits in a great location!

Beautiful Bungalow

         
Review by David M.
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.

We enjoyed staying at this well-located, comfortable property. It's a short walk to the boardwalk which encircles Balboa Island and also a short walk to Marine Avenue where most of the island's stores and restaurants are located.

Birthday Celebration

         
Review by
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.

Perfect spot on Balboa!

         
Review by Lesa P.
This little cottage is in the perfect spot on Balboa island and so so charming! It was clean, cozy and comfortable. We walked everywhere on the island and we loved feeling like 'one of the locals' in the neighborhood. Easy access to Newport, Fashion Island, shopping, restaurants and yet so quiet and quaint. Loved it!

Great location--Balboa Island family fun

         
Review by
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.

Review by Matt B.
5 of us for 5 days including Thanksgiving dinner at the property.PROS*Great Location*Quaint comfortable house*Good water pressure in showersCONS*Needs more Blankets, Towels, and Pillows*The lighting is goofy. Switches are in weird places, a lot of the lamps don't work or the bulbs are out. It always felt a little too dark.**BIGGEST PRO = Working with Vikki at Newport Beach Vacation Properties. She was AMAZING and saved our vacation! Thanks for everything Vikki!!

Cute house but needs some TLC

         
Review by Lisa V.
Very cute house, great location. For what we paid I was hoping for nicer sheets, pillows towels and a few other things. There was a very large stain on one of the comforters. : 0 Which is not to be expected when you are paying what we did.Spending

Red Dooe Cottage

         
Review by Patricia O.
Being new at this, I ran into a couple problems but the staff was very helpful and on the bowl even own a New Year's holiday weekend. I grew to love the cottage over the 10 days I was there, especially after discovering wear the pants were stored and where the dishes were. The location is great.

Bungalow on Balboa Island

         
Review by Clayton F.
Very quaint bungalow but needs some upgrades in the bathrooms with the fixtures. Also needs a ceiling fan in living room ceiling The house was sealed up tight when we arrived and was very musty. We had to buy many room fresheners to make it livable the first day
