“Stay here...”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

This is one of the best places we've ever stayed. My wife is extremely picky and is already talking about coming back. The units are beautifully finished, and very well maintained. Safe location, with interesting events going on all around. Other locations in Newport Beach simply cannot compare to what you get here.

We were a group of seven people from Iowa sharing two units. This is a wonderful location, and can't be beat anywhere in Newport Beach. I know, because I rented a bike and rode all of the side roads and back alleys in this entire area. You should do this ride also. Be sure to tour Lido Island as well. Very interesting real estate if you have few million laying around.

Parking is at a premium in Newport Beach but this location has plenty of it. Quiet street and you have the tranquil harbor providing beautiful views from the units. The pounding ocean surf is a short two-block walk away. Everything you need to enjoy the water is already there. Umbrellas, chairs, towels and boogie boards. Use those boogie boards....so much fun.

The other reviews on this property are also very accurate.

Excellent restaurants are nearby and you can do several days here without a car, if you want. In addition to the bike, we rented a kayak, and an electric boat for a harbor cruise. All of this is within a couple blocks of this location.

Think twice before booking anywhere else.

Room Tip: Second floor units are three bedrooms and have a superior view, but the location is so good you can...

We stayed for three weeks in apartment 225 .A family of six enjoyed every bit of it the view overlooking the bay proximity to the beach and cleanliness of the apartment all added up to make our stay totally comfortable.The place is well maintained and fully equipped .I would not hesitate to select the place for any upcoming stay in the future.

My husband and I stayed here with our 3 girls and absolutely loved it. We stayed in 227, a ground floor unit. It had a large master with separate bathroom and another bedroom with 2 twin beds and a 2nd bathroom. Full size washer and dryer. Fully stocked kitchen. The casa was decorated beautifully. It was in immaculate condition.
We loved the gorgeous view from the patio. We watched the boats in the bay. The kids liked the sandy beach area by the bay.
Just a short walk to the Newport pier and shops and restaurants. Loved our stay!!

Room Tip: Three bedroom units are available also.

After searching the internet for more than an hour, looking for a "luxury hotel" in or near newport beach, I stumbled on the website for Casa de Balboa. Intrigued, I called the owner, who confirmed the details. We took Unit 231 for the weekend, and could not have been more delighted. Lovely modern kitchen with granite countertop, beautifully polished hardwood floors, superb furniture, excellent linens and towls. On top of all of this, the view overlooking the harbor and all of the moored and moving boats, the reviewer who said "WOW" had it exactly right. The rate was more than agreeable for what we got. A terrific find. Four times better than any luxury hotel would have been. Very friendly ownership. A deal extraordinary.

We just returned from a stay at Casa De Balboa and just had a splendid time. We spent an extended weekend in unit 231. We really had an awesome time with views of the Bay and sailboats cruising by. Casa De Balboa is in the heart of Newport Beach yet in the absolute luxury of this well stocked 2 bedroom condo, you feel miles away from it all. The Pacific Ocean is 2 blocks away and the unit is directly across the street from Balboa Bay. Pam and Greg did a spectacular job of decorating and providing all of the comforts of home here. We had a BBQ and enjoyed the gas heater on the patio while we viewed the beach and harbor. We will definitely return here on our next visit to Southern California.

We have just returned from our vacation to Newport Beach. What a fantastic experience we had at Casa de Balboa! It is perfectly located, spotlessly clean and has everything that you could possibly need while on vacation. Our vacation prior to this one was at a 5* at Atlantis/Bahamas. While it was very nice, our stay at the Casa was so much more enjoyable. Our children take afternoon naps - but instead of being stuck in a dark hotel room for 2-3 hours, we were able to sit out on our patio, sip wine and enjoy the beach! I'm am telling you, if you are traveling with children there is simply no better place to stay. We loved being able to cook our own meals in the gourmet kitchen and then enjoy them on the patio, watching the boats go by.
Pam and Greg were an absolute delight to deal with. They made sure every little thing was perfect - and those really are the things that make a vacation great. We have already booked the same week for next year!

WOW! We had such a great experience that we have already booked for next year! From check in until checkout everything was just like Pam promised. The beach was a few feet away, the Casa was clean and really nicely decorated. We were within walking distance to all the shops and restuarants. My wife, who is in the hospitality industry and lets just say she is pretty hard to impress, was on the phone to all of our friends and relatives raving about how relaxing it was! It is our new favorite vacation spot! Kids loved it, dog loved it! Thanks again!!
