Experience pure bliss! © Check out the Great Room video here:
Casa 229 is the NEWEST remodeled, gorgeously decorated, second-level, three-bedroom/two-bath duplex. The great room, dining room, and fully-appointed kitchen (including a professional stainless steel DCS range) are perfect for family entertaining. The property is 50 feet wide - affording a rather large lengthy travertine covered deck across the width of the property.
Views! Views! Views! Unlike many oceanside properties (with no view due to the width of the beach), you'll have amazing views both day and night! Our premium location is directly 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 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 The Dock. Great Mexican fare can be found at El Ranchito. There are many fine seafood restaurants as well.
This home was recently extensively renovated. The floors, including the master bedroom floor, are lovely Virginia Vintage maple hardwood planks hand distressed and scraped. 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/Tommy Bahama feel with slip-covered furniture and tons of 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 all lined Bamboo Roman shades. The master bedroom, twin room, and the great room have sliding doors (and French door great room) to the front deck with the best views in Newport Beach of the water, beach, islands, Fashion Island, and the mountain!
There are two new bathrooms beautifully done in limestone. One is private to the master bedroom.
There is sleeping for six in beds - with a Westin Heavenly Cal King pillow top in the Master, a Queen Westin Heavenly pillow top in the second bedroom. There are two built-in twin captain beds in the third room. A queen sofa sleeper can accommodate two more guests.
The property is well maintained and always super clean.

Walk or bike to Balboa Island, Lido, and the Fun Center, located near the Pavilion.
Bring your fishing poles! There is a small bay dock two doors away for fishing and loading/unloading passengers. There are electric and motor boats for rent at the Pavilion. Don't forget your tennis rackets too! Free Courts are two blocks away. And there's a great tot lot (swings, slide, jungle gym) just one block away as well.
From the moment you walk through the Dutch door, you'll feel "at home" - and maybe a little pampered at the beach.
You really can have the BEST of both... the beautiful Newport Bay AND the Ocean!! It truly doesn't get better than this!!
