On your next visit to Newport Beach, why not live like a local and stay in one of the numerous beachside rentals or vacation getaways available everywhere from charming Balboa Island to exclusive Pelican Hill. Encompassing cottages, high-end homes and everything in between, there’s sure to be something for everyone.
Used to luxury? Newport Beach Vacation Properties Inc. provides everything from quaint two-bedroom, two-bath Corona del Mar cottages for as little as $2,100 to $2,300 a week all the way to palatial 10,000-square-foot estates in Pelican Hill for as much as $30,000 to $60,000 a month. The company currently offers 40 mid- to high-end vacation-rental properties for short-term rental throughout the various upscale communities of Newport Beach, including Corona del Mar, Newport Coast, Pelican Hill, and Balboa Island and Peninsula.
“We have developed an expertise in this niche area of the market, where we’re striving to raise the bar on the service that we deliver to our property owner clients and the vacationers coming into our portfolio of vacation homes,” says Paul Aubin, owner and president of the vacation property management company, which markets, books and manages vacation properties for private homeowners.

Casa de Balboa offers a hotel-like experience in a couple of premier, five-star (casas) situated in the heart of the Balboa Peninsula. Just steps away from the boardwalk, Newport Pier, shopping, dining and local activities from biking to fishing, each casa offers its renters top-notch views and first-class services and amenities. “This location is very unique as we are right in the heart of the main Balboa area, yet hidden away from all the heavy traffic and noise that you will experience elsewhere,” says Casa de Balboa’s Gregory Murray. The two-bedroom, two-bath properties are adjacent to each other and each sleep five people — perfect for larger parties and families needing to book multiple rentals simultaneously. Rates are seasonal and range from $320 a night to $3,995 weekly; call 888.983.8973 or visit www.casadebalboa.com.

Rates are seasonal and run from $495 a night up to $5,000 for a week’s stay; call (949) 310-4161 or visit www.bestlaguna-newportvacations.com.
