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
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.

Great Newport Beach Condo
The location was excellent (1/2 mile from the beach and a mile from 17st). The facilities (pool, weight room and parking) were also excellent. The top floor condo was a good size one and well equipped meeting all of our needs. The property manager responded quickly to any questions and needs very quickly. We will definitely return.
Space, Sun & Sand
A lovely stay at this property - property manager very responsive. A very relaxed community with great pools, gym and tennis courts. 10 min walk to local beaches and less than 5 min drive to local supermarkets (e.g. Vons/Trader Joes) and stores. 15 min walk to the Lido area for great restaurants. The apartment itself is a great size - loads of space. A great spot to land for a very relaxed holiday.
A very nice apartment
A very nice apartment.
Comfortable, we'll appointed unit with a responsive accommodating host. Great location close to all.
Casa Cristina is our home away from home to escape the Northeast winter. Condo has everything we could need with a we'll appointed kitchen, comfortable furnishings and an on site pool complex and gym. Just a short ride to the beach, movies, shopping and restaurants. Our host was especially accommodating, making sure that all our needs we're met.
I have nothing to write since we never met the owner
Location was okay, there was no barbeque on the balcony, though promised. Balcony has almost no sun - facing north. The utilities in the apartment is very old and worn down.
Pool, spa and fitness vere very good.
The floorplan of the property is excellent, and the bed in the Master bedroom is very good. The single beds are ok for children.
We found the property well equipped and even though we were there for two months we didn’t miss a thing.
If we were to return to newport beach, we would choose an apartment with a balcony facing south.
Nice apartment but caution is advised because of the fragile state of the interior/utilities
Thanks for the feedback -- it is always valuable. I am surprised that you didn't raise these issues with me in the 30+ emails and texts we traded as you were here for two months. The dishwasher is less than a year old. The stove/oven is 4yrs old and the refrigerator is 5yrs old. I would not characterize the appliances as fragile or worn, but perhaps you expected something else.
There are two professional restaurant quality BBQ at the pool (as noted in the condo listing) and no propane appliances are allowed on the balcony per community policy. I don't understand why you said you were promised this, and never once brought it up in two months.
Yes, the condo does face north and in the Summer, the balcony is full of sun. You happened to visit us in Winter, so there is less sun on the north side of the building. I will take your suggestion and clarify on the listing that winter months receive less sun. Thanks for your feedback!
Just as it looks in pictures.
This is a great place to be within walking distance to the beach and easily accessible to all major attractions. Easy drive to LA and Balboa Island.
Perfect for families to spread out and have some private space for downtime.
The pool and hot tub were a hit with our family.
Parking was ample (2 spaces).
Washer/dryer were a plus and the manager was accessible even though we didn't even have to meet him face to face. Directions and outlines of area attractions were clearly provided to insure no surprises or additional fees.
Thanks for sharing your space for our memorable vacation!
Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, and Queen Mary are half-hour away. Legoland is 90 minutes south. World-famous shopping at South Coast Plaza or Fashion Island are both half-hour away.
