Have BOTH the Ocean and the Bay!! CASA DE BALBOA Newport Beach Vacation Rentals are FIVE STAR properties in the BEST LOCATION with the BEST VIEWS in Newport Beach! Located in a family friendly quiet area yet handy to all the restaurants and shops that start around the corner on both the main blvd and ocean. You can't get closer to a swimming body of water in Newport Beach. The water and sand are 30ft away at the NEW Marina Park Beach with state of the art children's play park, sailing center (rentals), and two light houses including the Light House Cafe. Turn to the right and you have the ocean too!! Where we are located the peninsula is divided by one road with a short block on each side and the ocean water is closet to the boardwalk...often times it's easier to put your toes in the ocean water from our location as opposed to many ocean front homes because the beach is so wide. Rent paddle boards and kayaks on the beach or around the corner and they will deliver in front. Use the dock in front to pick up passengers in your electric boat rental.

Mi Casa es Su Casa!!

From the moment you walk through the dutch door you will feel at home and a little pampered at the beach!

All Casas are beautifully updated, decorated, and maintained and are situated on nearly twice the width of a typical beach lot giving you significantly more outdoor space and interiors that are not bowling alley like. Each Casa has gorgeous views of the Newport Beach Bay, the boats, the islands, Marina Park (Mothers) Beach, Light Houses, Fashion Island, the beautiful Newport Coast, and the mountains in the background.

Why vacation with another family unless it's your own? The Casas are PRIVATE to one another. Entrances for each Casa are on opposite sides of the building. The large upper decks cover the first floor courtyards. You won't have fellow vacationers staring down at OR up at you OR from the side courtyards!!

We provide five star hotel-like services:

High standard of cleanliness

All linens provided (high quality!) no charge no hidden fee

Heavenly or W Hotel mattresses or the equivalent

High powered fans and a portable air conditioner in each unit

Spa bath towels, beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas

Perfect for Family Reunions, Wedding Parties, and Large Groups

We realize that this is your vacation and often times a special event whether it be parents of a bride and groom needing a special “home away from home”, a 50th Wedding Anniversary, or a family reunion.…we’ve got you covered. Our vacation rentals are all located next to one another and can be booked together providing the perfect accommodation for larger parties or those hosting an event. We offer both 2 bedroom vacation rentals and 3 bedroom vacation rentals. Wedding planners please consider the NEW wedding venue at the end of our beach for the beautiful new Marina Park. Please inquire about availability, holidays, and specials for larger parties and what we can do to make your event as memorable as possible. Call for reservations. ©

Thanks...see you at the beach!! ©

Guestbook comments from the owner

All of our guest book entries are from a guest book that Vacationrentals and Homeaway owns and manages but for some reason do not forward onto their site on our behalf. We may be changing our guest book as it does not allow more than one entry per email. Since many of our guests are repeaters they are not allowed another entry even if they stay in a different Casa.

All of these entries by our guests can be viewed on our web site.

Thanks for taking a look..and see you at the beach!

Warm regards,

Great, great Location and beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful rental with great upgrades. The whole space served us well and was larger than we expected. We were VERY happy with this choice. View of Newport Bay is good, although I wish the deck wall itself was see-through (a few taller chairs are provided on the deck that help the view). Family beach is right there and Newport Beach is less than 3 blocks away (you can see it if you lean out of the deck!) with Newport Pier, restaurants, shops, etc. just a few blocks from there. GREAT, GREAT, GREAT LOCATION! Front & Deck is shaded in the hotter afternoons into evening; so nice. For a good workout, we walked the 2 miles to Balboa Pier & back! Love that this was NOT on the main beach boardwalk with all the chaos, crowds, bikes, and noise there. Location can be a bit noisy during the day due to the close proximity to the family beach, but typical for any urban setting at the beach. It was always pretty quiet at night. Beds were GREAT and we may go buy one ourselves! Kitchen was on the small size for accommodating more than 2 people at a time, but totally fine, beautiful & fully equipped with absolutely everything we needed. Love the large granite counter with bar seating on the other side. Laundry inside unit was super helpful (and you even provided the detergent!); BBQ is hard-lined to gas (nice!). Having the garage was great (it's super tiny, though) and we were always able to figure out parking for our visitors with a little effort or paying the nominal fee at the large Family Beach parking lot. Street Sweeping days were a challenge and you may want to remind your guests of it because they don't do that in many other states. Considering the cost & how nice the space is, better room fans could be provided, as there is no A/C (there was usually a good breeze there & I know no A/C is typical at the beach). We live in Georgia now, but both grew up in So Cal and spent many years of our youth & young adulthood at Newport Beach. Thanks for helping us have such a great new experience while visiting our Calif family & friends. Can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review. It is appreciated. We take note of the fans (sometimes difficult to find good ones), however, as far as the lack of A/C you were provided a large portable A/C unit (located in the closet) that works extremely well. Each Casa has one located inside. We also list this as an amenity on our site. I am very sorry that you obviously didn't see it. Please know that it is there upon your return visit!! Thanks again and see you at the beach!!

The Best Spot in Town

  • 5 of 5

Casa Balboa is the best spot in town, waking up to see the changing colors of the Newport Harbor, jumping on a bike and taking a cruise toward the Wedge, or over the bridge to Huntington Beach, the shops, the restaurants, location is tops. The home has now become my "second home" it has all the comforts that one needs, wifi, well appointed kitchen, televisions in each of the bedrooms, comfortable, roomy, charming, and conveniently located. There is nothing more than one needs for their Newport Beach Vacation. I'll be sure to return!

A Slice of the California Lifestyle

  • 5 of 5

This is my fourth time at this property, and at this point it feels like home. Exceptionally well located in the heart of the Balboa Penninsula, you can walk to almost everything from this home. The home itself is well appointed, and Greg and his staff are most attentive. Waking up in the morning, and having your coffee while looking out into the morning sky with the water glistening just in front of you is just heaven. In the evenings the views with the lights of newport in the background and the gentle rocking of the sailboats is about the most peaceful feeling. I highly recommend the property, and I hope to return over and over again.

Central California


  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a very clean apartment. I really like to fact my kids can play outside right of the beach while my husband and I can sit on patio and enjoy the scenery. We had a loud neighbor upstairs and within 24hours the manager handled it and we were happy. We stayed two weeks, kids did camps, walked, rode bikes, paddle boarded, Very convenient to grocery stores as well as eating. Most of time we bbq outside and watched the sunset as kids ran on beach.
