About Lauryl Schumacher

We are native Californian's and live a few minutes away from our beach house. We love the beach! Dan is a tile contractor and did all the tile & stone work in the house, Lauryl is a Flight Attendant. We love to fish, dive & travel and be at the beach. We love our little 'Beige Beauty' & take pride in ownership.

Lauryl Schumacher purchased this house in 2005

Why Lauryl Schumacher chose Newport Beach and Balboa Island Area

This is where we would vacation with our family and friends growing up. Although we just lived in Whittier, CA, our families would still vacation at the beach and the favorite place was Newport Beach!

What makes this house unique

The beach is just a block away. The boardwalk will take you to the Newport Pier & beyond to the Balboa Pier & Fun Zone. Biking on the boardwalk is a favorite past time. Surfing, swimming & beachcombing all await you. The grocery store is right across the street, no driving around to get what you need, just hop across the street! Restuarants all within walking distance & a bus stop nearby for the ' green way' to travel.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Lauryl,

Thank you very much. We really had a great time. My daughter had great time boogie boarding. Even my mom tried it. We all loved it. We wished we had more time at the beach. May be next year.

Best Regards,

This beach house is more than 5 stars!

  • 5 of 5

I think the owners have OCD lol! Every detail to the home is perfect! It was very clean, unique and a perfect location! There is a supermarket across the street with a bank. Walk across the street to the beach or 1 block to Sancho Taco (awesome tacos!) or Gina's Pizza. The area was very crowded and I found street parking easy enough. A small to medium sized vehicle would fit in the garage. Thank you for a great place to relax for a couple of days!

Great stay and location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stay here for 16 days and we had the BEST time! The beach was a block away and shopping/dinning right across the street. No need to drive anywhere! Lauryl, the owner had everything you could need. It felt like home away from home. She was so easy, friendly and quick to respond to our needs. We miss the Beige Beauty! We can't wait to stay there again! Thanks for everything Lauryl!

Great house, great location, great owners....

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Beige Beauty. It is very much as advertised and just a short walk to the shops, bars and restaurants near the pier.

The owners were great and very responsive throughout. The booking process was easy, although I would prefer they accept Paypal, but they do accept credit cards. Lauryl was so easy to work with and responded literally in minutes to any email I sent.

The house is really nice. I like the lack of carpeting (hard woods and stone tiling) for a beachhouse like this. Very much easier to keep clean. Everything was updated and in good shape. We had a couple of small difficulties with a couple of window cranks initially, but Lauryl helped me figure that out. The layout is different, but it works well. The main living area is upstairs, with a bedroom and bathroom down. This worked perfect for our gave our older daughters a place to hang out when they tired of their parents and baby brother. And, as others have indicated, the place was spotless.

The location is great too. Being across the street from a decent grocery store really comes in handy. And while the corner the house is on is quite busy, we enjoyed the people watching most of the time. The only negative to that is that it can be loud and we had to keep the windows closed at times to eliminate the noise. There's a decent A/C unit upstairs that helps keep the place cool in the afternoons as well. It would have been pretty miserable upstairs if they didn't have that.

Great restaurants nearby as well, or you can easily cook great meals at the house with the great kitchen and grill out front. We enjoyed Sancho's Tacos, Gina's Pizza, and the Irish Pub (can't recall the name)all a short walk.

And of course, there's the beach. Just a 3-5 minute walk puts you on a nice, clean, wide SoCal beach that is just fantastic. Easy walk even hauling all the beach stuff...which by the way, the owners give access to lots of stuff like boogie boards, beach chairs, toys, umbrella, etc.

My only other somewhat negative comment is that the parking can be a struggle. The garage is small, and in my opinion, can be a challenge to get a full size car parked in there. Mid sized, or compact cars, no problem. Full size way. If you can't get your car in the garage, parking around the neighborhood is challenging.

The minor issues though are far outweighed by the positives. We'd rent this place again in a heartbeat!

Great Memories!!!

  • 5 of 5

A couple of girlfriends and I spent the weekend with the kids at this awesome home. We loved every minute of it. We made great memories. The house is very comfortable and clean. The kitchen has everything you need to make a great meal. The walk to the beach is incredibly simple. The upstairs dining room windows are perfect for people watching. I highly recommend this property, the owners are wonderful to work with. My girls and I will be back!!!
