    Gorgeous. Lots of wood, but it's used cleanly and very well.

    Where is Little Balboa Island?

    the house itself is nice. the furniture and decor suck hairy balls.
    the only furniture i like is the patio furniture.

    Off of Newport Beach in CA.

    I like the space but I'm not digging the furniture. Let me have it and I'll fix it up nice.

    Too much orange-colored wood inside.

    It looks like a rehab centre. The kitchen is vile.

    do you think it's really that orange? i hate orange wood and i thought it might be the pictures because in the pic of one of the bedrooms, the wood looks a more normal colour.
    if it really is orange then the whole thing is vile.

    Yes, the bedroom wood does look less orange, but it seems to be the exception. Agree - the orange is vile.

    Great space, I'd adore it, but I agree that the furniture sucks. Needs a paint job too.

    Too much wood for me, I don't mind some wood, but this is way too much for my liking.
