About Property Manager

Property managed professionally by local property manager.

Property Manager purchased this condo in 2004

Why Property Manager chose Newport Beach

You want to have a family beach vacation, but the rentals right on the sand are a Hassle! No parking, very crowded, and Tiny! Also, beach housing are usually 60+ years old with bad plumbing and poor lighting.

The Villa Balboa community where Casa Cristina resides was built in the late 80s and the top-floor location means tons of natural light though huge skylights.

What makes this condo unique

Inflatable queen-size bed available to sleep 2 additional guests (not included). Wraparound balcony has barefoot-soft grass and bright bold sun chairs to drink in the SoCal sunshine with privacy. Please note the balcony does not face the ocean. Two pools to choose from -- serenity or family fun. Huge 15-person whirlpool jacuzzi. Tennis courts! Boogie board and beach bag ready for sand castle construction. Elegant marble kitchen countertops. Internal laundry services (clothes washer and dryer), ironing board.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great perks here including the management. You can tell that this unit was lived in by the owner prior to it being a vacation rental, and so the setup was very abundant and practical. Plenty of towels, reclining beds, functional patio furniture. When we left our unit, we actually forgot my 3 year old's sleep sack and Steve actually met up with us the next day to hand it back to us. Awesome!

Great price for family accommodation . Heaps of space. Lots of useful appliances already available that you would not get at a hotel (inc pool inflatables & toys). Air conditioner worked well, tv in each room and board games if nothing on tv. Spacious balcony and 1 minute to pool. Probably could not be helped but the spa bath was not working 100% when we stayed. A more detailed map of the grounds would be helpfull than the standard one issued. Other than those 2 minor things. Great place!

Great condo, great location

  • 5 of 5
Casa Christina is a beautiful condo. Clean, well equipped and nicely decorated. Steve was very helpful and attentive to our arrival time and needs. He met us upon arrival to show us the condo and complex. The pool was beautiful and the residents were friendly and open. This condo is a great location; close to the beach, town and highways. Highly recommend and we will definitely stay here again.

Great Stay for Families

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time staying at Casa Cristina. Would recommend this condo to families, couples, adventure seekers. The location was excellent to visit all the major attractions around Newport Beach and it is easy to get to the beaches. The pool was great, the kids loved it and all our neighbours were welcoming.
The apartment is well equipped and very clean and modern. It had all the mod cons and was comfortable.

An Excellent Get-Away

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful east-facing two-bedroom/two-bath condo with an excellent roommate-style layout (bedrooms/bath divided by the living room/kitchen areas). The top-floor unit is clean, well-furnished, comfortable, quiet and in a gated, nicely landscaped complex with two community pools and hot tub. There is a balcony with grill and loungers, as well as beach/pool towels and toys. We were there over the 4th of July and were able to walk to the nearby Sunset Ridge Park (via a private gate in the complex) to watch the fireworks all along the coast.

The gate also provides access for the walk to the beach, which is about 15 minutes (downhill on the way but back up a pretty steep hill on the return). You have to cross very busy Route 1 (PCH) at the traffic signals to get there. It wasn't a problem for us (and we had two 7 yr. olds in tow), but someone with mobility issues might have a problem. The sushi restaurant in the small retail plaza at the base of the hill (on PCH) below the condo is excellent; so is the pizza place and package store. The condo is too far from the hub of Newport Beach (i.e. the fun zone, pier or Balboa Island) to walk. We drove and had no issues finding parking; someone on bikes could likely make the trip in 30 min. or so.

Trader Joes' is a close drive, as is a fantastic fruit and vegetable market. The unit had all the paper products we needed, there was also coffee in the freezer and plenty of ice.

These are the only issues we found, none of which negatively affected our stay: In the kitchen, there was no colander or mixing bowls (there's one bowl but it's huge); also no grill-specific tools. The grill needs a serious cleaning (that said, it worked). The A/C shuts off after a set number of hours which is great for saving energy when we would be gone for the day, but also meant the place heated up during the evening when we were asleep (maybe that time could be increased?). Finally, there was some issue with smooth playback for the DVD player in the living room (maybe it just needs to be cleaned as well).

All in all, we highly recommend this rental. There is an attention to detail that showed throughout and which served to make our vacation relaxing and memorable.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback, Chris! We have replaced the DVD player and purchased bowls and a colander. We greatly appreciate ALL feedback and use it to improve the guest experience. Thank you so much for sharing! Hope to see again you next year.

Balboa Condo

  • 5 of 5
The unit was very well appointed, clean, and comfortable. We had everything we needed to host a dinner and to prepare food for a short stay by family members. The condo was quiet. It was convenient to the beach and shops on the Balboa peninsula. We really enjoyed our stay.

Fabulous apartment with everything you need for a home from home

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was perfect for our stay in Newport Beach. Very spacious, spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. Everything we needed was provided - even toys for the pool and beach! The communication with the property manager was excellent and we would love to come back again and stay at this apartment. There was a really useful folder in the apartment that provided all the information you need for the complex, beach and town areas and activities. Plus some great restaurant recommendations. Highly recommended!
