When the best just isn't good enough! Casa de Balboa is a Five Star property. If this is the first time renting a vacation home... don't fret. Our guests are used to the finest accommodations. Ssshhh! Our location is a well kept secret! Unique and Caribbean like are several descriptions we have heard. Casa de Balboa your vacation homes year round! Mi Casa es Su Casa!
Rent one...rent all!! We are perfect for family reunions...all Casas are in one location!!
Have the BEST of both... the beautiful Newport Bay AND the Ocean!! It doesn't get better than this!!
Views! Views! Views! Unlike many oceanfront properties (with no view due to the width of the beach), you'll have amazing views both day and night! Our premium location is directly across from a beautiful large gentle bay beach (Mother's Beach now part of 9 1/2 acre Marina Park with a children's state of the art play area and two light houses including The Light House Cafe serving breakfast, lunch, Happy Hour, and dinner) - with views across Newport Bay of Fashion Island and Newport Coast. The view is particularly lovely at night with city and bay lights.
Watch the boats pass by from the comfort of your master bedroom, living room - and, of course, from your large private deck (which is great for outdoor dining). The deck also affords front-row seating for the Fourth of July Boat Parade and the world-famous Newport Harbor Christmas Boat Parade that pass in front.
In addition to our bay beachfront location, the property is just one short block from the ocean boardwalk and pier. And it's within walking distance of many restaurants (and shops) offering a variety of fare. Enjoy Mexican cuisine, seafood (including the famous Crab Cooker two blocks away), Italian, Sushi, and several gourmet restaurants such as The Dock and Ocean Front.
Casa 229 is an extensively renovated, gorgeously decorated, second-level, three-bedroom/two-bath beachfront Casa. It offers a great room, dining area, and a fully-appointed kitchen (including a professional stainless steel DCS range) with custom cabinetry and granite counters. The floors through out are Virginia Vintage hand scraped and distressed.
The property is 50 feet wide - affording a rather large lengthy travertine covered deck across the width of the property.
The decor is upscale beachy with a British Colonial/Tommy Bahama feel with slip-covered furniture and tons of beautiful artwork. It's painted in a soothing neutral palette - designed to enhance the lovely water view.
All bedrooms are efficient, with built-ins in the closets. To add more of a Caribbean feel, the window coverings are all lined Wooden Roman shades. The master bedroom has sliding doors to the front deck with substantial views! There are two bathrooms beautifully done in limestone. One is private to the master bedroom.
There is sleeping for six in beds - with a Cal King Westin Heavenly pillow top in the master...and a Queen Westin Heavernly Pillow Top in a secondary bedroom. The third bedroom has two twin beds. We can provide a hi line air mattress (bed height auto inflate deflate) for 2 additional guests.
The property is well maintained and always super clean.
Walk or bike to Balboa Island, Lido, and the Fun Center, located near the Pavilion.
Bring your fishing poles! The main pier is a couple of blocks away for fishing. There are electric and motor boats for rent around the corner and at the Pavilion and Lido Village. Kayaks and paddle boards are available for rent at the end of our beach and right around the corner as well. If rented around the corner, they will deliver to you in front of the Casas. Also at the end of our beach you can take sailing lessons and enroll you child in recreational activities.
To make it the perfect vacation all Casa's have wireless hi-speed Internet, cotton sheets, spa towels, beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, blow dryers, washer/dryers, Weber gas bbq grills, commercial outdoor heaters and a portable air conditioner (if needed off season). All you need is your food and drink!
Parking is not an issue each Casa has a one car garage (ask about 231). There is plenty of parking both metered (pay station can use mobile app) and non-metered close by.

Everything about this condo is great. It is very clean, nicely decorated, has everything you need. The view is amazing, so fun to watch the boats all day. The deck is large and comfortable and the heater was great, as we were there in March. Of course the location is great for exploring Newport and food delivery is easy too.
Ultimate Newport Location
This house is very clean and comfortable! The décor is updated and elegant! The location couldn't be any better....we park the car for the week and walk or bike everywhere. Bars, restaurants, convenient store, bike and boat rentals...did I mention bars!!! The cherry on the icing is the LARGE patio over looking the bay literally just 50 feet in front of the house! You will spend 99% of your time on the patio looking at the boats in the bay!
There are few upgrades I would like to see happen...the great room needs to have a big screen TV! If you want to leave the patio to watch a sporting event or a movie, your group needs to cram into the small room that's just off the great room....this is a small room with a small TV and dvd player both could also be upgraded and be more user friendly. This NOT a deal breaker, I would HIGHLY recommend this rental to anyone!!!
Doesn't get better than this!
The Casa's are so clean, classy and comfortable! We were in awe the first time here and still can't get over the beautiful view. We have stayed here many times before and it's never a disappointment! So much nicer being on the bayside and the new Lighthouse restaurant is just a skip away and great food! We just love staying here...kayaking and paddleboarding delivered right at your door....can't ask for more!
Perfect for Families
First of all - my wife and I used to live on the Peninsula in Newport Beach. So we know the ins and outs of where to stay and where to avoid if you have a family or just want a place to relax and not deal with a lot of noise. There are literally hundreds of vacation rentals you can find. This was our first time staying at Casa De Balboa and it was exactly what we wanted. Not only was it spotless and beautiful, but the owner Pam was more than accommodating and answered any and all questions we had. She also only rents to well qualified tenants and you will never have to worry about a house of 20 years olds next door partying all night. It is directly across the street from a large beach and park on the bayside that is ideal for little ones. It is also just two blocks from the ocean if you want to get into the waves. It is also a 5 minute walk to all of the restaurants located at Newport Pier.
Everything was provided that you could ever need. The linens were soft, the beds almost as good as home. Our three year old didn't want to leave. We even had friends that live in the area come over and they immediately sent the link to their family coming to visit in the spring to suggest they stay there. I can not say enough good things about our stay and the property itself.
Thank you for your kind words. It was our pleasure to have you and your family. We are happy you enjoyed yourselves. We look forward to your return visit! Happy Holidays! Pam
Loved the decor, quality of beds, linens and cleanliness. Beautiful view of the bay and very well appointed! Only complaint: Very noisy street in the am's. City of Newport blows off sidewalks every single day of the week at around 7am. Also the trash on the dock is dumped each morning at 6:30 am with a back up beeping noise. My husband and I enjoyed having the sliding door open at night, but after the early am wake up call, we had to keep it closed :(
Sorry for your experience. It is not typical for our little area. I contacted the city and they are picking the trash up later and no longer using the "beep" feature to back up. Since we are located at the beach we have once a week sidewalk cleaning with a blower (Wednesday's) which is necessary to remove sand to prevent slippage. On the ocean boardwalk the city uses a small street sweeper at 6AM every morning for the same reason. During your stay the city happened to install new plants and the blowers were here several days in a row. Again, not typical. All of our reviews will reflect our guests experience of the quiet family neighborhood we have. It is one of the quietest on the peninsula and yet it is steps to the bustling shops and restaurants. We are certain you will experience this upon your return. Happy Holiday's! Pam
This was an exceptional vacation rental! It was spotless when we arrived (inside and out), the furnishings and finishes are high quality and the location is fabulous -- just across the street from an calm, clean beach. I wouldn't consider staying any place else on Balboa!
