Rent all!! We are perfect for family reunions...all Casas are in one location!! Please click on the link provided below for all our listings or go to casadebalboa.

Have the BEST of both... the beautiful Newport Bay AND the Ocean!! It doesn't get better than this!!

Casa 225 is a newly remodeled, beautifully decorated, second-level, three-bedroom/two-bath beachfront Casa. It offers a living room, dining room, and a fully-appointed kitchen (including a Viking range). The property is 45 feet wide - affording a rather large lengthy travertine covered deck across the width of the property.

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 bay beach (Mother's Beach) - 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.

In addition to our bayfront location, the property is just one short block from the ocean boardwalk and pier. And it's within walking distance of many restaurants offering a variety of fare. Enjoy Mexican cuisine, seafood (including the famous Crab Cooker two blocks away), Italian, Sushi, and several fine dining restaurants such as Ocean Front and the Dock.

Walk or bike to Balboa Island, Lido, and the Fun Center, located near the Pavilion.

This home was recently extensively renovated. The floors, including the master bedroom floor, are lovely maple hardwood. The other two bedrooms are carpeted. The living room has a lovely seagrass rug atop the wood.

The kitchen has beautiful custom cabinets and granite counters. The decor is upscale beachy with slip-covered furniture and beautiful artwork. It's painted in a soothing neutral palette - designed to enhance the lovely water view.

All bedrooms are generous in size, with built-ins in the closets. To add more of a Caribbean feel, the closet doors are louvered and painted white against the beige background. The carpeting is in a sisal-type loom and color. The master bedroom has sliding doors to the front deck with substantial views! There are two new bathrooms beautifully done in marble and travertine. One is private to the master bedroom.

There is sleeping for six in beds (new/newer mattresses) - with a Cal King Westin Heavenly pillow top-size bed in the master bedroom and two additional Westin Heavenly pillow top queens in the secondary and third bedrooms. We can provide a hi line air mattress auto inflate deflate to accomodate two more guests.

Make memories!!!

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.

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 NEW Marina Park (our beach is now part of this park) and also right around the corner as well. Newport Fun Tours will deliver and pick up the paddle boards and kayaks in front of the Casa's

At the END of our beach (OPENED December 5, 2015) is the NEW CROWNING JEWEL of Newport Beach, the brand NEW MARINA PARK complex which includes the NEW "Lighthouse Cafe" (open breakfast, lunch, and dinner), a children's second story slide from the new lighthouse (yes perfectly viewed from the Casa's), children's state of the art play park, community center, WEDDING VENUE, (on second floor..WOW for the views!!). There is also a NEW visiting marina at the end of our beach in the NEW Marina Park complex. Bring your boat with you!!! No need for a dinghy!! There are new overnight accommodations for boats in the marina as well as paddle board, kayak rentals, and sailing school!!!

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

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!

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 on the beach!

Warm regards,

Pam Murray

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our overall experience with Casa de Balboa was outstanding from beginning to end. The place was as new, comfortable and beautiful as the pictures show. Our view from the upper deck was gorgeous in the morning as we sipped our coffee. A few short steps to the Bay and a walk across the street to the beach. The location couldn't have been better. It was a nice quiet community with no sound from the nearby street. An easy walk to the pier or bike ride to Balboa Fun Zone. I would definitely rent this condo again and recommend to friends.

Family gathering

  • 5 of 5

From the very beginning of making my reservation, the experience renting through Casa de Balboa was very professional.

The rental property is outstanding! Our family of 7 were very comfortable and loved the condo amenities. The bedding is very comfy and a lovely Tommy Bahama print! The towels are so soft! The view of the bay is wonderful! We enjoyed watching the boats, kayaks and stand up paddlers! Easy walk to our favorite restaurants, Fly n Fish and Charlie's Chili for amazing French toast!!!!

We are looking forward to returning to 225 19th St Newport Beach soon!

The Guests that acutally stayed in this home during the week of July 30th - August 6th

  • 5 of 5

My husband and parents stayed at this beautiful townhome during the first week in August, I recently noticed that someone put a fake review of this property during the time we stayed here. We loved this place! We loved the location, water was right outside the door, we could walk to many restaurants, shopping and rental shops. A short walk across Balboa Ave and you were at the main beach.

The property itself was clean, everything worked wonderfully. The deck was fabulous to watch the boats, have dinner and drinks and read a book. We have already recommended this location to friends and family and we definitely stay here again. Please do disregard the false review when you are deciding on a place in Newport Beach.

Our best Newport Beach rental yet

  • 5 of 5

We have rented places in Newport Beach many many times over the years, this is now our favorite place to stay. It's is a beautiful place, with great upgrades and the view is fabulous (bay, boats, city, ....). We like it better than staying right on the beach too as it's more private and quieter. My granddaughter loved the new park a few minutes walk away and the beach and pier are a few minutes walk away.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in Casa 225 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay (six of us and a toddler). It is spacious, immaculate, and has a great view of bay full of yachts. Sat on the deck for cocktails in the evening. The decor is classy beach style. If you like to cook, this kitchen has everything you need. Wonderful sheets and towels. Everything you need to go to the beach including sand chairs, umbrella, and towels. The peninsula is very busy with tourists, but this condo is in an area away from all the crowd--very quiet-peaceful location. Would definitely stay again.

Casa 225 was Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Very happy with Casa de Balboa! Unit 225 was very clean and comfortable and tastefully appointed. Great quiet location, steps from the bay and a short walk to the ocean. Lots of restaurants to choose from within walking distance. House was festive for Christmas and a great location for the Christmas Light Boat parade.
