Balboa Island Real Estate: A Coastal Luxury Enclave with Waterfront Charm

Living the Island Life on Balboa Island

Balboa Island is a man-made island nestled in the heart of Newport Harbor, offering an idyllic coastal lifestyle. The island is known for its relaxed, friendly ambiance and strong sense of community. Residents enjoy strolling along the waterfront boardwalk that encircles the island, dining at charming local eateries, and browsing the unique shops and boutiques along Marine Avenue.

The island’s prime location provides easy access to Newport Beach’s beautiful beaches, world-class golf courses, and the upscale shopping and dining at Fashion Island. Balboa Island is also just a short ferry ride away from the Balboa Peninsula, home to the historic Balboa Pavilion and Fun Zone amusement area.

Balboa Island Homes For Sale: A Buyer’s Guide

Balboa Island real estate consists primarily of single-family homes, ranging from original 1920s beach cottages to newly built luxury residences. Many homes boast water views or are situated directly on the bayfront, offering private docks and stunning vistas of Newport Harbor.

While Balboa Island is a relatively small community, there are several distinct neighborhoods to consider:

  • Little Island: Located on the north side and known for its charming, narrow streets and cozier homes
  • Collins Island: An exclusive gated community with just 8 waterfront homes
  • The “Interior”: Non-waterfront homes on the island’s inner streets, which tend to be more affordable

Whether you’re seeking a turnkey property or a home to renovate and make your own, our experienced Balboa Island real estate agents can help you find the perfect fit. Browse our latest Newport Beach and Balboa Island homes for sale to view active listings.

Balboa Island Real Estate Market Trends

The Balboa Island housing market remains highly competitive due to the island’s limited inventory and enduring allure. In Q1 2024, the median home sale price on Balboa Island was $4,650,000, a significant 22.4% increase year-over-year. (Data via CA Regional MLS)

An uptick in new listings, active listings, and pending sales in early 2024 points to a strong spring selling season ahead. While rising mortgage rates have impacted affordability, continued high demand and well-funded buyers, bolstered by a thriving stock market, are expected to keep Balboa Island real estate activity afloat.
