Villa Balboa is considered to be one of the best low-rise gated communities in Newport Beach, California. It offers easy access to shopping and the beaches in a safe, family friendly atmosphere.
Villa Balboa has 445 condos with 1 to 3 bedrooms that range between 914 to 2,000 square feet of living space. The complex was built between 1979 and 1989. These units are not typically on the market long because of the community’s location between the Pacific Coast Highway and Hospital Road, off of Superior Avenue. It’s also close to other neighborhoods like Newport Crest, and Versailles. Amenities include two pools, two spas, fitness center, and lighted tennis courts. Relaxing lounges are also available for family and friend get-togethers. Residents have access to an onsite storage facility and underground parking.
The Newport Mesa Unified School District serves the Villa Balboa community with award winning facilities like Newport Heights Elementary School, Newport Harbor High School, and Horace Ensign Intermediate School. There are also several private schools in the area.
Villa Balboa is within walking distance to the beach through a manicured greenbelt area. Downtown shops and restaurants are nearby and residents can take a quick bike ride to Newport Pier. Access to the 55 and 405 freeways is also easy. Fashion Island features an open-air shopping environment with stores like Neiman Marcus, Brooks Brothers, Whole Foods, Macy’s and Bloomingdales.
The Balboa Fun Zone is popular for families and features fun in the ocean and harbor for over seven million visitors each year. And the coastal city of Newport Beach offers many water activities like fishing, swimming, paddle boarding, Ski Doo riding, and canoeing. Visitors love to come here for whale watching and adventure boating. A bit farther north is the Upper Newport Bay where the ecological reserve is a stop off for many species of birds.
