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!! We have one of the best views in Newport Beach!!

Casa de Balboa is located on Balboa Peninsula with ferry service to Balboa Island. The peninsula is primarily divided by one road, Balboa Boulevard, with a short block on either side with the ocean or bay.

Views! Views! Views! Unlike many ocean front properties (no view due to the width of the beach) you have amazing views day and night! The water and sand are only 30' away!

We have a premium location 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 living room, and of course, from your large private front courtyard (which is great for outdoor dining). The courtyard is covered and walled (with beautiful gardens including star jasmine and gardenias) on both sides offering a feeling of privacy and unmatched coziness while enjoying the gorgeous full bay and beach views. It also affords front-row seating for the fourth of July Boat Parade and the world-famous Newport Harbor Christmas Boat Parade.

Casa 227 is a beautifully decorated lower level beachfront Casa. It has two bedrooms, two bathrooms on a 45 wide lot (mostlots are 25-30 ft wide) affording significantly more outdoor space without that bowling alley feel.

This home was recently extensively renovated. The interior is beautifully decorated. The floors are lovely travertine stone (except in the bedrooms -- which are new Anderson Coastal series distressed wood). The living room has a lovely seagrass rug atop the stone.

The kitchen has custom cabinets and granite counters with a bar open to the dining area.

The living room decor is upscale beachy with white slip-covered furniture, a limestone console, and beautiful artwork. It is painted in a soothing neutral palette -- designed to enhance the lovely water view.

Both 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 master bedroom has sliding doors to a private rear courtyard with gardens of hibiscus, bougainvillea, and giant birds of paradise.

There is sleeping for four in beds -- with one Cal King Westin Heavenly pillow top-size bed in the master bedroom, one queen in the second bedroom. We can provide a bed height twin air mattress auto inflate deflate for a fifth guest.

Both bedrooms are also painted in neutral colors, enhancing the lively furnishings and artwork. The glass sliding door in the master opens to the private rear courtyard with beautiful gardens

The baths, one private to the master, are beautifully done in a neutral travertine and marble.

In addition to our bayfront location (the water and the sand are approx 30' away!), the property is one short block from the ocean boardwalk, pier, and walking distance to many restaurants with a variety of fare including Mexican, Seafood such as the famous Crab Cooker, The Cannery, and Blue Water Grill, Italian, Sushi, and several fine dining such as Ocean Front and the Arches.

For those with children, weekly summer programs are held at our beach, such as sailing, sailing/tennis combo, kayak, and swimming (Newport Beach has won water quality control awards). Our beach, as well as our ocean beach,is tested each week.

Walk or bike to Balboa Island, Lido, Cannery area (Blue Water Grill, The Arches, Alta Cafe, and the Cannery restaurants plus small antique and other shops, and the Fun Center located near the Pavilion.

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 at the beach!

Warm regards,

Pam Murray

Now this is a Five Star Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We rent in Newport Beach every winter and Casa De Balboa went beyond meeting our expectations. We really enjoy peace and quiet when we’re vacationing and that’s exactly what we got during our stay. The rental is beautifully decorated and cleanliness is obviously a priority.

We really enjoyed dining on the outside patio and taking in the view.

It was nice to find that there are no ally’s behind the building, like you typically find in Newport Beach. This gave it a safer feel. I loved walking my dog at night and leaving the windows open for that fresh beach breeze.

If you’re looking for a true luxury rental with a great location, this is the place for you.

Holiday Get-A-Away

  • 5 of 5

"I can not “thank you” enough for the wonderful Christmas my sister and I shared at Casa de Balboa. The place was charming with all the added touches of the holidays. It brought back some fond memories for me when I moved out to California in 1985 and lived in that area. It was fun to see what changes have been made but also to see some familiar spots."

Great Vacation Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay at Casa de Balboa. Last time we stayed in the upstairs 3-bed unit. This time we stayed at the downstairs 2-bed unit. Pam has the finest accommodations in any Newport Beach condo we have ever rented. The towels and bedding are first class hotel quality. The kitchen is fully equipped with cooking tools to make any dinner you desire. The condo is just beautiful and close to everything. This location is just a block from the pier and there is a Farmer's Market every Sunday morning. We walked to the market, did our shopping and carried our produce just a block back to the condo. One garage space is provided. Parking is very limited to non-existent on the street. I do not recommend bringing a 2nd vehicle as you will have a lot of problems finding a "free" parking space on the curb as the area residents use the street parking for "long term parking/storage" of their extra vehicles. There are a few paid parking spaces, but we never tried to use these as we were able to fit our minivan in the garage (barely). The area has always seemed very safe, but we did have a little scare one night. We were sleeping with our slider open and a stranger "mistakenly" entered our bedroom at 4:30 in the morning while we slept. Our dog barked like crazy and woke us up and we screamed at the "visitor" and he quickly and quietly left. Therefore, we don't recommend sleeping with any windows or doors open. This might be an issue with no air conditioning in the warmer summer months. There are two sets of gates between the street and the back courtyard and the "visitor" walked through both sets of gates to gain access our open patio door. I spoke with Pam the next morning and It is believed it was an intoxicated local resident who may have mistook our condo for his, but nevertheless, it scared the bejezus out of us. There is a pole you can put in the sliding door track that keeps the door open a 4 inch crack and prevents the door opening any further. We would gladly return, but we would only stay in the upstairs unit because of our late-night scare.

Owner's Response: Hi Jim, Thank you for your review. Again, our apologies for this happening during your stay. The neighbor you mention has finally been evicted and is now gone (it wasn't our property). We are located in a very safe, quiet, family area and this was an isolated incident. Due to any lingering concerns we have installed a "Yardlock", a device that is combination only, on the 6 foot gate on the side to the rear of the property. It is hooded on the opposite side and can only be operated from the rear or combination from the front. This property is completely walled and fenced in. There is NO alley in back (would be easier access for anyone with intent of entering) making this Casa one of the safest ground level properties in Newport Beach. One would have to go through two gates with the second gate being the 6FT locked gate, a well lit courtyard, and scale the 6ft gate or wall to enter. Not that one would need it (and obviously was not seen by you), but there is a portable air conditioner as well as plenty of fans in each unit. There also was a bar for the sliding glass door that one can use. As far as parking which is an issue at any beach, you forgot to mention that you get a one car garage with each rental. Also due to the new Marina Park at the end of the beach, parking is particularly plentiful here...much of it metered though (some free spots can be had). What you were observing was this same neighbor "jockeying" his roommates and his car for the "free" spots and both are long gone. I will send you pictures of the "Yardlock". It's a pretty neat secure device and a pic will be posted on our web site as well. Looking forward to your return visit!
