Michelle Baccaro purchased this house in 2006

Why Michelle Baccaro chose Newport Beach and Balboa Island Area

I am a California native. I have spent many an afternoon, summer or winter, playing with the dolphins just steps from my front door. I love sharing this magical area with people from all over the world!

I have traveled extensively, but I always came back to my paradise.

What makes this house unique

During your stay here, I will be available to ensure you get the most out of you time here in paradise.

Avoid the hustle of big hotels and live like a local.

The weather is wonderful here all year round.

This is a great spot for families and business travelers. Disneyland is 25 minutes away, World class golfing is 10 minutes away at Pelican Hill Resort Golf. Google headquarters are nearby, BCS, Huntington Beach marathon.

Come for a week and leave with memories for a lifetime.

Great vacation rental experience

  • 5 of 5

Great, easy rental experience from start to finish. Clear, fast email and phone communication, a great location, and everything worked and was very comfortable. Kids loved it, too - can't beat a 30 second walk to the beach! Michelle and Rollo were great and had tips (which we followed and were happy with) on where to eat and what to do. We would absolutely stay here again.

We really enjoyed location. Close to everything we needed. Short walk to to a really nice beach. House had lots of beach toys for our daughter. Also chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards for our enjoyment. 2 bikes to ride was a big plus! House was clean, king bed was really comfortable.

Best Holiday Ever

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in Michelle's place. The apartment is so convenient to the beach! Walking distance to the pier and shops. The apartment had everything we could have needed. Michelle and Rollo were very quick to respond to our questions and check in/out was a breeze, we felt extremely welcome.

Plenty of towels / beach towels available and kids toys. Would recommend this place to everyone.

Wish we could have stayed longer. Would definitely go back.

Perfect Beach Location

  • 5 of 5

This condo apt. may be the Perfect location for a Beach Vacation. From Rollo's 'everything is taken care of' greeting, to the comfort of our unit, the well-stocked apartment and the beach just a short stroll, everything was wonderful. Set-up just right, loved the decor, comfy beds and linens. All we needed to add were our own meals! And that was made easy by the multi-food Taco shack right across the street. Loved being here! We will return asap. Thank you, HomeAway and to this apartment owner for thinking of Everything!

Catalina Flyer is 5 minutes away. Jump on board and take a 45 minute cruise to the enchanting Catalina Island. Book a whale watching trip!! In the same location there are fishing charters to go on half or full day trips. Bring back your catch and grill it on your patio! For a romantic charm, rent a gondola to float through the Newport harbor, don't miss John Wayne's boat 'The Wold Goose'. Take a sunset cruise through the harbor. Hollywood and Universal Studios is 1 hour! So much more. Since I am a California native, I can help you find the best spots to enjoy your time in Newport Beach!
