We enjoyed our stay at 129 Opal. We had a great time exploring Balboa and plan to return again.

Hello Natalie, Thank you for the great review! Balboa is such a fun place to explore and take time to enjoy all that Newport Beach has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you again.

Enjoyed our stay . During the day in June parking could be hard to find if you have a larger vehicle. However, parking available in evening when most people visiting the island for the day leave. Great remodeled unit.

Definitely made my trip to Newport Beach for a conference much more enjoyable. Great location w a coffee shop and Mexican restaurant nearby. Very quiet at night and very walkable to the little “town” w shopping, dessert shops and restaurants.

Very short garage but we were able to squeeze in diagonally a ford explorer. Perfect location. Amazing kitchen, wish it had some ‘leftover’ items if people stayed there previously like butter or ketchup so you don’t have to buy everything. The new restaurant behind the alley, todos santos is AMAZING. 10/10. Loved playing shuffleboard when there wasn’t a car in the driveway.

Great stay! NBVP was very responsive and all questions were answered. The place was super clean upon arrival and was a perfect size for a family of 3-4. Would highly recommend this location!

Beautiful property.

We loved our 10 day stay. Location is 1 block from the bay front and ferry, and a 5 minute walk to the Main Street. The upstairs unit was very fresh, clean, and updated. Deck gets great morning sun. The grand kids loved the bunk beds. Garage parking is very valuable on the Island (but extra tall vehicles won’t fit). Property manger was very responsive and immediately solved a problem we had with the heater. We use Balboa Island as our base for Disneyland- it’s only a 20 minute drive if you use the carpool lane. Spectacular area with plenty to do. We’re coming back to this unit again.

Overall Comment

I really liked this rental. It was fun to walk around balboa island, to the ferry just a minute or two away, and the patio was nice to sit outside and bbq. I would definitely stay again!

Our place was very clean & was nicely updated. I woulkd recommend adding a smart tv in the bedrooms as well as additional mirrors since there is only 1 bathroom. I would definitely rent here again!
