Have the BEST of both...
The beautiful Newport Bay AND the Ocean
Casa de Balboa fronts a beautiful large bay beach called Mothers Beach that is also steps from the ocean surf, boardwalk, Newport Pier, shopping, restaurants, and local activities. This location is your perfect summer or all year retreat. We are an ideal quiet family property in Newport Beach that is in the heart of the Balboa Peninsula. The water and sand are 30 feet away! You can not get closer to a swimming body of water in Newport Beach than right here!! Many guests monitor their sleeping infant while sunning on the shore in front of their vacation rental! No need to worry about excess noise and traffic ruining your vacation as this gem of a beach is well hidden from the crowded boardwalk scene, yet hidden right in the heart of it all. Watch both the World Famous Christmas Boat Parade pass by (one of the top ten Christmas events in the US according to the NY Times) from the comfort of your living room or large deck!
CHRISTMAS BOAT PARADE PASSES IN FRONT!!!
As Newport Beach’s Christmas Card to the world, the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade will set the harbor ablaze for five consecutive nights, beginning Wednesday, December 17 and ending Sunday, December 21, 2015. The parade starts off Bay Island at 6:30 pm and finishes at the same site at approximately 9:00 pm each evening.
Beautiful multi-million dollar yachts, kayaks, canoes and other small boats will light up the harbor as a dazzling array of holiday lights and music fill the air at the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade. Many of the boats will be richly decorated with animated Christmas scenes accompanied by music and costumed carolers. Some boat owners in the past have spent over $50,000 to decorate their vessels for the event. The Christmas floats will wind their way some 14 miles around the harbor to give viewers in restaurants, yacht clubs, on public beaches, and in private homes an incredible sight that has delighted millions of people for a century.
The Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade, which has been hailed as “one of the top ten holiday happenings in the nation” by the New York Times, is truly a magical holiday tradition for all ages. The parade continues to be a premier event during the holiday season in Southern California that brings joy and happiness to all that view it.
All Casas are beautifully decorated for the holidays including prelit tree!

Charming Beach Scene PLUS Plenty of Local Activities
Walk two short blocks (grab a coffee, breakfast croissant, or donut on the way) to watch the Dory fisherman bring in their catch each morning. The Dory fishing fleet is a historical landmark formed in 1891 a full 15 years before Newport Beach became a city! They are the only commercial fishermen allowed to cast off from the beaches in their specially designed boats in the state of California. Upon returning, they sell their bounty out of old boats in this quaint location steeped with history.
Walk or bike to Balboa Island, Lido Island, Cannery Village, McFadden Square, the Balboa Fun Zone or simply cruise the boardwalk to catch all the beach scenery. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter and we'll keep you updated when great deals on local activities become available such as whale watching, kayak rentals, paddle board rentals, electric Duffy boat rentals and more.
Bring your fishing poles! The main fishing pier is a couple of blocks away. There is a small bay dock two doors away for loading/unloading of boat passengers. Great for a dingy to commute with if you have a larger boat on a mooring rental during your stay or drop off rented Duffy's.
