Property description

This 1st floor dream home on the sand is located on a corner lot in Sunset Beach, a unique community located North of Huntington Beach and just South of Long Beach and Seal Beach.

No need to cross the street to go to the beach........ you are already there! This very clean home was thoughtfully prepared by 2nd generation vacation rental proprietors who have spent many years of their lives living and traveling the world. After over a decade of hotel stays; the standard of our home's cleaning, details, amenities and conveniences far exceeds that of most places. Life guard stand at the edge of the property & shore.

Sunset Beach is a wonderful one-mile long “small town”, with year around events, it is close to many Southern California attractions - but nestled away on a beautiful uncrowded white sandy beach.

Its name gives away our secret of breath taking sunsets and views of Catalina Island from your dream home and amazing deck on the sand.

Over 60 years ago our family built this elegant yet comfortable downstairs apartment on the sand surrounded by a lush tropical garden, sandy beach and Pacific Ocean. The dining room and living room large ocean view doors open out to a spacious and magnificent deck on the sand.

Take in the warm sun, fresh breeze, beautiful views, sunsets. Relax and unwind. Watch the birds fly by and often the dolphins at play. It is an amazing place to watch time go by and make lifelong memories.

If you decide to venture from your spacious deck and return from strolling, swimming, surfing, boogie boarding, sunning, or shell collecting - enjoy the outdoor shower with endless hot water.

Take in the view while Barbecuing or even from the kitchen. Or there are many wonderful restaurants within walking distance (or delivery), shopping and sites are a short distance away.

The Sunset Decadence is truly a special place. Enjoy your dream home away from home; just relax and get away from it all, or in the evenings between day trips.
