    What a great vacation. There was something for every member of the family and our day-visitor friends to do. Everyone had a great time, and we enjoyed home cooked meals together in our home which added to the whole purpose of a family vacation. We love this house and its location on the island and plan to return next year,and the year after that, etc.

    We loved everything about this home - the 1932 charm, the updated kitchen and the closeness to the beach. The rooftop deck was an added bonus. We would definitely consider this home again!

    a guest from Arcadia, CA recommends this vacation rental

    The experience was great! The children and grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed the beach on the bay. The beach was clean and raked each morning, and the water activities were all relatively safe. Walks along the bayfront early mornings and evenings were wonderful, as well as the Balboa Bars and shopping on "Marine." The rental home suited our needs quite well and we will certainly return next year. Shannon and Hunter at Abrams Coastal were efficient, professional,and a delight to work with.

    Yvonne V from Westlake Village, CA recommends this vacation rental

    This is our second time in this historic home that we've dubbed, "The Shire." We love the character and warmth of this home. A few minor improvements could be made. The upstairs bath/shower combo (not the master) does not drain. This was true last year and this year. So guest, had their feet in ankle high water when they showered. And the latch on the dutch door was loose/broken last year and remains the same this year., This didn't affect us, but I'm sure it's an easy fix that should be addressed so the entire latch system doesn't just fall apart and pieces get lost. To the owners, we say, "Thank You" for sharing your lovely home with us!

    We loved the location of this house, being a block away from the bay and about 3 blocks from Marine Ave. It was a 15 min walk to the Ferry, which was manageable.

    The house was in great condition and had a wonderful Viking oven. We utilized the beautiful rooftop for dinner and relaxing. Another key perk was the Nest controlled A/C.

    We would love to stay here again!

    We had a lovely time at 118 Apolena. The house is well appointed and holds a large group. The roof top patio is, of course, a perfect feature for viewing July Fourth fireworks. Location can't be beat...close to Marine for dining and easy walk to the ferry!

    We've vacationed on Balboa Island for many years in many lovely cottages, but this was the best! Beautifully appointed, especially the master bedroom, and plenty of room for a family of 10 to enjoy, with multiple patios as well as the great rooftop deck. This home is also close to the beach so the kids were able to swim, paddle board, and play in the sand right at end of our street.

    We have been vacationing as a family at Balboa Island for the past twenty years.
    The family time we spend during is priceless and the beautiful home we stayed at this year was gorgeous. It was a classic and eligent; however, it had a roof top lounge area which was perfect to relax and entertain. This residence is a place you have to stay.

    Beautifully restored historic home on Balboa that was perfect for our family vacation. Four bedrooms, one being a bunk room that could sleep 4 kids, 3 full bathrooms. The rooftop kitchen/deck/fireplace was spectacular. We spent most nights up there. Chef's kitchen. Highly recommend this home and would stay here again.
