Newport Center House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Balboa Island is one of the premium vacation spots in the country. If you're going to vacation at the best, why not stay at the best? This newly remodeled home is perhaps the ideal location on the island. Just feet away from the water and only three houses from the main street makes picking something up from the shops easier than any other spot on the island.

It's on the only beachfront without boat tie ups, completely wide open for better beach enjoyment and absolutely breathtaking views. Located on the South Bay Front provides perfect sun exposure, gentle warm breezes and a direct view of the main inlet harbor.

The house is 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, and a great room with a fantastic entertainment center. In the living room there is a 46 inch HD flat screen television with Direct TV, VHS and DVD Player.

The Master bedroom has a 42 inch HD flat screen television with Direct TV. The other bedrooms have 23 inch HD flat screen televisions with Direct TV. The house sleeps 6 comfortably. Internet access is also available with a modem for Ethernet connection as well as Wi-Fi access.

Fabulous location!!

  • 5 of 5

Finishing up our 5 th consecutive year renting this home. And it feels like home to us at this point. Weather was perfect (as usual) and the views were spectacular. This house could not be located in a better spot for relaxing, walking to nearby restaurants to eat and, people and dog watching!. We'll be back for year #6 for sure.

Life of leisure

  • 5 of 5

Great place to relax and have a family barbecue. We found everything we needed. Most of our time was spent on the patio taking in the view. The seals put on quite a show for us. Fun time had by all. Thanks Don.

Perfect summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

What is better than opening the patio door first thing in the morning to be greeted by the ocean? We had a wonderful week at this property with our three year old child and small dog. It is a comfortable space in the perfect location - easy to walk to Main Street, short walk to the ferry and just all around convenient. We would love to come back!

This was, without a doubt, one of the best vacations we have ever had. The location is absolutely the best; right on the water, beautiful views, great location to shopping, restaurants and evening entertainment. This three bedroom (two kings and one queen), two full baths, complete kitchen, t.v.'s in living room and all bedrooms, was the perfect place for our vacation with our two granddaughters (14 and 16). They could be on their own while we did our thing. The island is beautiful to do walking tours and the patio is great for just sitting and "people watching". We unpacked and never had to worry about packing until we left. Just like a cruise ship on land. Very close to Fashion Island shopping and dining. We didn't want to leave but, will be sure to return in the near future.

Island Life

  • 5 of 5

It is all about location! The bedrooms and baths are located toward the back of the house with a hallway door to separate from the living area. At night it is quiet and dark…great for sleeping. In the morning you walk out to the living area and WOW…there's the bay, boats, and beautiful sunlight. So much fun to sit on the patio and watch friendly people go by. The kids played in the sand in front of the house…we didn't have to walk any distance if they needed to run to the restroom. Public dock a few streets down where friends were able to visit in their Duffy and take us for a spin around the bay. Walked down to Village Inn and the stores. Market close by on the Island and a larger one just over the bridge. Walked the dog around the perimeter every day. Hated to leave!!

A Great Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

Great Location... Great Views... Great House... If you're looking for a place to stay on Balboa Island, I would highly recommend this property. Everyone had a wonderful time, and we're already looking forward to coming back next year. The house was more than advertised, and accommodated our large family very well. All three rooms were good size with plenty of closet space. Thank you for a perfect vacation!
