Balboa Island is well known for having some of the best curb appeal homes in all of Newport Beach.  The small island is filled with one and two story traditional style homes that can sit on the waters edge with direct bay front views.  For the most part the island is filled with single family homes with no residential condos.  There are however many duplex properties properties located on both the main and little island that offer homeowners and investors alike investment opportunities.  

Balboa Island itself is not a cheap place to live with real estate starting well just under the $2 million dollar price point.  Duplex properties will typically start at just above $2 million and can be found in older homes that were built anywhere from the 1920's to

The Bayshores community is located on the north side of the channel as Pacific Coast Highway crosses over the Newport Bay.  Within this gated community is approximately 249 homes with a small percentage of 14 homes that are actually located directly on the bay front.  These water front homes are simply stunning and can have views of the neighboring communities of Linda Isle, Harbor Island and Lido Island which are also surrounded by the Newport Bay.  During the annual Newport Beach Boat Parade these homes have one of the best vantage points for watching the boats come and down the channel.

In the last year there has been 4 water front homes that have come on the market and have ranged in price from $4,885,000 to $10,995,000.  A large majority of these

The Lido Island community in Newport Beach offers a unique location in the middle of the Newport Bay.  The Bay surrounds the entire island with access to the island from a small bridge from the main land of the Balboa Peninsula.  There is a large mixture of homes found here from luxury bay front properties to interior homes that have no views.  This is considered one of the most desirable neighborhoods from it's prime location and accessibility to the water, especially for those who have boats and yachts.  Homes in this area start at just over $1,700,000 for an interior four bedroom home that offers 2,450 square feet of living space.  Water front properties start at just under $4.6 million and currently go as high as $10,950,000.

The Newport Beach Boat Parade started last night and was a big success.  There were hundreds of boats in the Newport Harbor as the annual event started with colorful boats and fireworks.  Newport Beach is truly a nautical town with hundreds of waterfront homes with many small islands that have incredible water views.
