    My husband and I were joined by friends for a week of reminiscing on Balboa Island. We had rented houses on the island while attending UCI in the early 70s. Our daily walks around the island brought back lots of memories. Happy to see a few of the original houses still around.

    We've been traveling from the East coast to Balboa for our summer vacation for the past 8 years, and it never disappoints. And 1301 N Bayfront provides the perfect house and location. Very clean and well proportioned house in an excellent location that provides easy access to all that Balboa and the surrounding area have to offer. And of course, Sally @ Abrams was amazing to work with! Highly reco staying here.

    Debbie T from Paso Robles, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We got excellent help from Abrams Realty office. There were many nice choices as it was off season. The house we stayed in was very nice. I could look out the windows at the water, dine on the patio or take my beach chair just outside my front doors. The kitchen was more than adequate and if you do not want to cook there are several great grocery stores with items for dining at your place. There is a lovely new market on the island. Some great restaurants are also nearby. The wonderful thing about the island is that you can walk everywhere. The Mexican restaurant in town is really good....picante Martin. There is also the Royal Hen and my new favorite Park Ave Cafe...501 Park Ave...exquisite. Also...the Viallage Inn which has wonderful music on thurs thru Sundays...we loved it! I love the island we went there as kids and it is wonderful. I would love to live there!!!!!

    We had a wonderful time on balboa island and this house worked perfect for us. On the north harbor, easy access for our paddle boards and kayaks. It was hot the week were there but the house didn't get too hot given the direction it was facing. It is the first street off the main island street so parking is a little tougher than other places but never parked further than a street away. We have used Abrams many times, always great service.

    Jason C from West Jordan, Utah recommends this vacation rental

    We have been to the Balboa Island and Newport Beach area on vacation many times. This was a great place to stay on the island. We enjoyed being on the water and having easy access for paddle boarding and kayaking. Not as active on the north bay front vs. the South, but it was a hot week so the place was cooler than when we have stayed on the South Bay Front. It is a little harder for parking since only one street over from the main street, but we never had to park farther than one street. There were 6 of us and it was a perfect size.

    We have rented many times from Abrams, always good to work with.

    We had a great stay this summer at 1301 n bayfront. The home itself offers plenty of space and style. It's super clean and well maintained. Better than that is the location. You have your own mini beach in front of the house and you are literally steps from mainstreet. Walking to breakfast, lunch and dinner has never been so easy. Loved it

    We had a wonderful stay at 1301 NBF. Everything was great, place was nice and clean and ready when we arrived. We used Terri's Linen Company and actually had to add some items and they were delivered right away.

    The only thing I would say needs improvement is the wifi, very spotty reception.

Because there are so many of us I need to usually rent two places. The last 3 years I have rented 1301 and 1301 1/2 to accommodate us. We love this location because it is close to town and also on the water. We have also met nice neighbors..

    We had a great time! We stayed for 6 weeks during our house remodel and loved it here! The house is very cute, very neat and clean and has everything you need. We loved the bay/sand as a front yard and our son doesn't want to go back to our real house. Very convenient location to the water, the cute shops on Marine Ave, and yummy restaraunts. Of course we enjoyed a Balboa (ice cream) Bar too! This is a fantastic place to walk around the island and great people watching too. I would highly recommend this unit. Having the garage and laundry was a real plus. Abrams Realty was very helpful and available. A 10 out of 10 if you ask me. Have Fun!!!
