"Island living in Newport Beach"

We have been fortunate to have received an invitation each year to view the Parade of Lights parade from the most ideal location, Lido Isle. With a harbor front home on Vio Lido Soud, our friends have a front row seat to the magical display of Christmas lights floating by their huge bay window. The guests spill out onto their porch on down to their private beach.

Each time I visit Lido Island I always wonder what it would be like to live there if I could afford the million dollar price tags of the homes. It’s an enchanting place with homes of eclectic styles crowded together on curved streets and alleys very reminiscent of a Mediterranean village. I guess that was the intention as many of the streets are named for Mediterranean towns such as Genoa and Barcelona. Many of the homes also follow the architectural style of the Mediterranean.

Located smack dab in the middle of Newport Beach harbor, it is linked to shopping and dining by a bridge. I’m sure the 2000 or so residents enjoy their isolation and privacy and relish crossing the bridge as they escape reality each day.

It is obviously a close knit community with many sailing enthusiasts that converge on the Lido Isle Club House for dining and libations after a day of sailing.

I love visiting Lido Isle each year. I don’t look forward to finding a parking space but I do look forward to a stroll through the enchanting streets. Would I live there? I think I’d like to keep it as a nice place to visit.
