About Kirsten Schmieder
We are a family of four that loves the beach, international cuisine, different cultures, and travel.
Kirsten Schmieder purchased this House in 1996
Why Kirsten Schmieder chose Balboa Peninsula
We chose this location because of its proximity to the beach. My husband surfs and he likes to be within walking or biking distance to surf. The winter swells breaks nicely just down the street and Blackies (a long boarders beach) is just on the other side of the 28th Street jetty. Having lived in big cities, I need to be in an area where we could be pedestrian. In 2007, we rebuilt the house to create more space and added a 3rd Story that enhanced our view. We raised our children here and this is home when we're not traveling.
What makes this House unique
This is a lovely, unique home. Walking distance to everything you need. It's not on the oceanfront but close enough to feel as though you are. We've spent countless nights entertaining in the open and bright living space,... collaborating meals with friends and dining on the balcony without the wind chill you get when you're directly on the beach. -One of the great benefits of being in this location.

Great home. Owners were very helpful before and during our stay. Would love to go back.
Fantastic trip made even better by a warm and friendly host.
Our group of 6 had a wonderful stay in this incredibly beautiful house. The place is full of modern amenities and the kitchen had everything we needed to make our stay a warm and comfortable one. A grocery store near by and plenty of restaurants if you don't feel like using the fantastic kitchen to cook. The views were stunning and they neighborhood was very welcoming and friendly. Cant recommend this house enough!
Perfect Sport for a family beach vacation
Our family stayed here for Thanksgiving week and enjoyed it tremendously. Excellent location, amazing kitchen, 3 full baths, clean, spacious. Kirsten the owner provided tremendous customer service. Highly recommended
Fabulous and Fun Beach Home (a block from the beach)
We stayed in this lovely, clean, contemporary home for our summer vacation in Newport this year. It has just about anything you need for your stay. The kitchen is fantastic with upscale, commercial appliances and stocked with any kitchen utensil needed. We stayed in and cooked or grilled 4 out of the 7 nights we were there. Both the family room (connected to the kitchen) and the upstairs master bedroom having sliding doors that disappear into the walls for that open air feel. This was one of our favorite features. The breeze was continuously blowing gently through the house. There is a deck off the family room where we ate all of our meals and another one off the master bedroom. The ocean view is pretty good from both spots. Our two teenage boys loved being able to each have their own bedroom and bathroom plus an additional bonus TV room to hang out in. We always had Pandora playing as well, thanks to the amazing system available in the house. The garage is stocked with bikes, boogie boards, great beach chairs, wetsuits, umbrellas, etc. and all are easily toted via a VERY short walk down to the beach. Newport Beach is huge and we never felt like we needed to head to any other beaches on this trip to CA. It was such a fun, easy, and relaxing trip for us. Kirsten and Scott are excellent hosts and were quick to respond to any requests we had. The vibe on Friday and Saturday nights in Newport gets a bit noisy (the only downside to being in such a convenient location) but we weren't willing to close up the house just to avoid that noise. It was fantastic to be able to sleep with all the doors and windows open! Balboa Island is a short bike ride away, Pageant of the Masters in Laguna Beach, Seal Beach, Huntington Beach are all within close proximity whether by bike or car. This home is even prettier than the photos depict and we would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you for opening up such a gem to VRBO.
Everything you need, and more!!!!
Cozy, charming, comfortable and close to everything!! Kirsten and Scott are incredibly hospitable. The house literally felt like a home away from home. All the ammenities you need, and more. To say I would recommend this place would be an understatement! We will most definitely be back!!
Great Location. Better than advertised.
This was an amazingly appointed property. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. They even had a Christmas tree up and decorated for us. Located just two blocks from the sand and near grocery store and plenty of dining alternatives. You don't really even need a car if you are just looking for a beach vacation. Very clean, modern property. We used to live in Newport and this trip brought back plenty of fond memories. We have 5 kids aged 10-17 and this property was perfect. (tandem bike was a big hit). Thanks to Kirsten for making us feel so welcome and relaxed. Hope to come back in the summer.
Centrally located house on the Newport Beach Peninsula. Walking distance to bay and beach activities.
