                      • On Wikipedia, our weather is described as Mediterranean. We are surrounded on three sides by water which keeps our temperature quite stable. Typically, the homes & buildings are built on slab. Add in asphalt roads, concrete walkways & alleys which absorb the heat from the sun and slowly release it back into the air so our weather stays very pleasant all year long! We do NOT get the high spikes of heat NOR the rainfall that is typical for other Orange County cities & Los Angeles....moreless

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1999

                      About the owner: Randy and I just love our quaint little town. When we got engaged at our favorite restaurant on the beach, neighbors and friends called us to congratulate. When we asked how they knew, they all had the same reply that they saw the plane pulling the banner that read 'KELLY! I LOVE YOU! WILL YOU MARRY ME? RANDY'

                      Why the Owner Chose Seal Beach:
                      There is no need to rent/use a car! It is so lovely to walk only a couple of blocks to Main Street where you can find just about anything! Tons of choices to satisfy any appetite ... Irish, Mexican, Japanese, Seafood, Yucatan, Vietnamese, Italian, Thai, Sushi, 50's Diners, French, Juice bars, ice cream parlors, pubs, and so many shops, boutiques, day spas, hair & nail salons, grocery store, drug store, florist, hardware store, theater, jewelry stores, and so much more!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
                      Old Town Seal Beach is just so unique. When you can look out and see Catalina Island just 22 miles off the coast from your own large private deck and fall asleep hearing the waves, it doesn't get any better than that! It is paradise!
