Casa de Balboa is a Luxury Five Star Newport Beach vacation rentals 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 home year round! Mi Casa es su Casa!
Have the BEST of both..the beautiful Newport Bay AND the Ocean!!
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.... You can see the lifeguard stands from both the bay and ocean beaches as well as the boardwalk from our ideal quiet family location.
Casa de Balboa consists of two buildings, Hibiscus, and Camelia on two side by side 45 and 50 foot lots.. totaling 95 feet of bay front. Each lot is nearly twice the width of a typical beach lot!! This affords a better interior flow (no bowling alley feel) and an unusually large amount of private outdoor space for each Casa.
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!!
Views! Views! Views! Unlike many oceanfront properties (no view due to the width of the beach) you have amazing views day and night from each Casa indoors or out! Often times it's easier to put your toes in the ocean water from our location (even though we are bay beachfront) than from many oceanfront homes...due to navigating the width of the ocean beach!!
We have a premium location across from a beautiful large bay beach (Mother's Beach) which is reverse L shaped. We are located on the bottom part of the L jutting into the bay 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 (furnished with the finest Kingsley Bate deep seat lounging cushioned furniture). 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 bay front 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 Arches at their two new locations. Great Mexican fare can be found at El Ranchito. There are many fine seafood restaurants as well.
Casa 227 is a recently remodeled, beautifullyy decorated, ground-level, two-bedroom/two-bath duplex. The living room, dining room, and fully-appointed kitchen are perfect for family entertaining. The property is 45 feet wide - affording rather large front (covered front) and rear courtyards. The front faces the bay beach (30ft away!) and has comfortable dining furniture. The french doors in both bedrooms open to the rear courtyard with lush plantings and chaises.
This home was recently extensively renovated. The floors are mainly travertine stone with distressed wood flooring in the bedrooms. The living room has a lovely sea grass rug atop the wood.
The kitchen has beautiful custom cabinets and granite counters. The decor is upscale beachy with a British Colonial/Garden feel 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 efficient, with built-ins in the closets. To add more of a Caribbean feel, the window coverings are lined Bamboo Roman shades. The master bedroom has french doors that open up to the rear courtyard with lush plantings. The living room has large sliding doors that open up to the front bay beach facing courtyard with the best views in Newport Beach of the water, beach, islands, Fashion Island, and the mountains!
There are two newer bathrooms beautifully done in travertine. One is private to the master bedroom.
Walk or bike to Balboa Island, Lido, and the Fun Center, located near the Pavilion. There are numerous places to rent bikes within a couple of blocks.
Bring your fishing poles! There is a small bay dock two doors away for fishing and loading/unloading of boat passengers. There are electric and motor boats for rent at the Pavilion and also at Lido Village. Kayaks and paddle boards are available for rent two blocks away next to the tot lot park with swings, slide, and jungle gym. Don't forget your tennis rackets too! Free Courts are next to the park.Read more

I had the pleasure of staying at Casa 227 for a week in November and it was truely amazing. The photos of the place are nice, but it is even better in person. The place is fully outfitted and so comfortable. And the location could not be better. Amazing view of the Bay from the patio and couch, and one block for the beach. The staff was so accomodating, even stopping by to fix a minor issue with the blinds. I can't wait to come back!

This was the cleaned, most well equipped, very modern and comfortable rental home we have ever stayed in. Wonderful location, walking distance to everything. Perfect for vacationing with a pet. We will definitely stay here again!

I was very apprehensive about renting a vacation property that was not at a high end resort but we had little time to plan, the Villas at The Resort at Pelican Hill were sold out, and so I went with my wifes gamble on this rental. l was very pleased with her choice and so were our boys. I think the location is the very best on the peninsula with shopping, restaurants, rentals, the beach and the harbor. Most important for myself is the rental was very clean and well kept. Pam's recommendations and instructions were great and easy to follow and she was always very responsive to our questions when we called or emailed prior to our arrival. I'll recommend the place to all our friends going to Newport and our family for sure plans on staying here again in the near future.
