Property description

Just ONE HOUSE OFF the SAND with PRIVATE ENTRANCE…
This incredibly convenient & peaceful guest house is the ONLY 1-bedroom vacation rental with
NO STREETS TO CROSS to the BEACH & only 3 SHORT BLOCKS to MAIN STREET & the PIER.

PERFECT for a ROMANTIC GETAWAY or a fun filled FAMILY adventure, it is NOT part of a complex but a guest house that was added on to accommodate family and friends.

You DO NOT SHARE ANY COMMON WALLS & NO ONE lives ABOVE or BELOW. This makes it a very quiet, private, serene & safe property.

BREATHTAKING SUNSETS …
from your own private deck, hearing the gentle roar of the waves. It is a perfect place for some quiet time with a good book and hosting family & friends for a relaxing but festive BBQ!

READ OUR RAVE REVIEWS …
& start planning your amazing beach vacation.

Be AMAZED & DELIGHTED …
by our charming, friendly & family safe surf town.
UNLIKE ALL OTHER VRBO listings in Seal Beach, we are the only rental that offers a 2-NIGHT minimum stay. Come for the weekend! Pick any day to arrive and any day to depart. Once here, you won’t want to leave!

WELCOME to PARADISE …
with RESERVED PARKING & parking passes for your visitors. You also have LUXURY LINENS & 24/7 PRIVATE USE of ALL amenities ... LARGE PRIVATE DECK with OCEAN VIEW, Beach Cruiser BICYCLES, BEACH CHAIRS, UMBRELLA & BEACH TOWELS, Full-size SURFBOARD, BOOGIE BOARDS, SKIM BOARD, WEBER BBQ, COOLERS & COOZIES ... ALL free of charge (see entire list below).

You DON'T need a car as it is just a 3-MINUTE leisurely stroll to the Seal Beach Pier (2nd longest wooden pier) and historic Main Street where you'll find casual cafes, award winning fine dining, authentic delis, bakeries, coffee & tea houses, Irish Pubs & ice cream parlors. You'll also discover surf shops, bikini stores, boutiques, antiques, art galleries, beach décor, a kite store, the shell shop, day spas, hair and nail salons, and many other specialty stores! On the weekends, you can get the freshest locally grown fruits, veggies and flowers at the FARMERS MARKET just up the road. A brand new full service Pavilions Grocery Store and a CVS Drug Store is conveniently located three blocks away.

Above and beyond our summer 'LIVE CONCERTS in the PARK' & 'The BALCONY BOYS BAND on MAIN', you'll enjoy our 'telescope friends' that often visit the pier and allow us to view PLANETS for free. You'll be amazed when you look through their high speed telescopes... the size of these monsters will shock you! Come visit during spring and summer from March through August to see our famous GRUNION RUN ... it's an amazing thrill to fish by hand and experience all the excitement!

Drive less than 5 MINUTES to the Marina and rent an electric DUFFY BOAT to cruise the charming CANALS of NAPLES, board the REGGAE PARTY BOAT for an evening cruise of the bay with LIVE MUSIC, catch the WATER TAXI to bring you to the QUEEN MARY and the AQUARIUM of the PACIFIC of Long Beach or take a romantic ride in a GONDOLA and be serenaded under one of the bridges on a canal in NAPLES. Take the dogs to DOGGIE BEACH where they can PLAY OFF LEASHES at the water's edge and even take a swim! BOLSA CHICA BEACH is just 10 minutes south where you can have a BONFIRE on the SAND! HUNTINGTON BEACH known as 'SURF CITY USA' is just south 15 minutes.

Choose your destination and drive only 20 MINUTES to DISNEYLAND, DISNEY'S NEW CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE, KNOTT'S BERRY FARM, KNOTT'S SOAK CITY WATER PARK, MEDIEVAL TIMES, PIRATE'S DINNER ADVENTURE or the LOS ANGELES ANGELS OF ANAHEIM STADIUM to just name a few! WE'VE GOT COUPONS for admissions as low as $17.99 per person ... some with $20.00 OFF ... others with 50% OFF ... SAVE BIG BUCK$ on these attractions and MORE!!!

AIRPORTS - LAX - 26 miles; Long Beach - 7 miles; John Wayne, Orange County (SNA)- 19 miles.

So come and visit one of the LAST QUAINT BEACH TOWNS, you'll want to come back soon!

Other Amenities

  • 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, French, Yucatan, Vietnamese, Italian, Thai, Sushi, Steak & Seafood, 50's Diners, Juice bars, Ice Cream Parlors, Pubs, and so many shops, boutiques, day spas, hair & nail salons, grocery store, drug store, florist, clothing stores, kid's shop, toy store, kite shop, theater, jewelry stores, hardware store 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!
