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.
