This 3 bedroom unit is FANTASTIC! Beautiful views and a living area and deck that are unbeatable. The harbor view of boats passing by, even late at night, gives a feeling of serenity and relaxation. It is the perfect place for a family or group of friends to gather. Everything about the home is perfect. The setting, views, decorating, and attention to detail is over the top. Cooking meals for a big group was even fun with the beautiful kitchen to work in and the wonderful appliances to work with. We definately want to come back again. Pam has been great at handling all the details and accomodating all questions right away. We hope to be able to take the sailing trip next time we are here. This has been a GREAT experience as we celebrated our daughter's college graduation with family and friends.
There can't possibly be a finer place to stay. Truly spectacular. FIRST CLASS! Location beyond compare! Unbelievably comfortable beds, fine linens, including a surplus of jumbo luxury beach towels- no need to pack your own. Beach chairs, umbrellas, (even saw stroller, kids beach toys, etc in garage! Washer and dryer in unit and a spare dryer in the garage!) Perfect location. Steps from Newport Pier, Crab Cooker and so many activities (Newport Fun Sports less than a block away - the absolute best bikes, electric boats, paddle boards, electric loungers) and too many great dining experiences - Walk to The DOCK Restaurant by the Cannery. Already missing the bay outside our door and watching the boats passing by all day - was a beautiful site! Watched the sun rise literally out our bedroom, living room and patios every morning! Kitchen appliances and tools were incredible - Pam - you didnt forget a thing! viking stove and oven, krups coffee maker, bosch dishwasher, jumbo GE monogram fridge, cuisinart toaster, blenders - beautiful bone china - and tons of it! Best of both worlds - bay and ocean - without the ruckus of being on the boardwalk. The peace and quiet of the bay was tranquil and the party life of the boardwalk and the pier shops and restaurants was just around the corner - a short 2 minute walk away. Truly, truly the best spot in all of Newport. I was raised in Newport and we rented two other houses earlier this summer in addition to this one - and this was by far superior. There will be no reason to ever rent elsewhere again. Thank you again Pam for making the stay so special - a memory for a life time for our family.

Awesome Vacation Home At the Beach! We stay at Newport Beach one or two weeks a year and frequently rent direct from owners. Casa de Balboa is far above all other rentals we have ever stayed at. The amenities are 5-star, luxury bed linens, awesome pillowtop matresses, top of the line kitchen appliances and cookware (didn't use them much, we were on vacation, you know). The veranda was awesome, we spent each morning having breakfast on the balcony and ended the day watching reflections of the sun setting and the city lights coming on. The owners were very responsive to any questions, and all emails were answered within an hour. We will definitely stay at this location again...book soon, because the secret is out--Casa de Balboa is probably the most excellent vacation home you will find on the peninsula! Enjoy!

We are fortunate enough to travel a great deal and often choose to rent homes instead of hotel rooms. We can honestly say that Casa de Balboa is an excellent choice for anyone who wants to: be close to the beach, swim or fish on the bay, enjoy the lovely ships as they pass, watch your children on the sand as you enjoy morning coffee on the terrace, bbq to your heart's delight, bike-ride the peninsula, take the ferry to the island, walk to great restaurants, soak up the rays, or otherwise enjoy the good life that brings people to sunny southern California. The word is out: Casa de Balboa is without equal in quality and location!
