Long Beach apartment description
The 'pied-a-terre' (French for a 'flat') is located above the owner's Spanish Colonial house with a separate entrance off the street. The apartment is furnished with all the comforts of home.
Upon entering, one is greeted with a cheerful infusion of colors, visually separating the living spaces of an open floor plan. Its many windows and French doors provide breeziness throughout. Collectibles from different countries lend an air of worldliness with a touch of whimsy.
A hallway leading to the cozy bedroom offers privacy from other guests sleeping in the living room. For the light sleeper, there's a soothing 'white noise' machine to camouflage neighborhood sounds.
The well-equipped kitchenette with its granite counter top is ideal for preparing a quick meal or mixing a cocktail. Instead of cooking, check out the nearby eateries of various cuisines and budgets. Or, on a warm sunny day, enjoy a BBQ in the patio below.
We welcome corporate renters. Please call 562-439-9740 for details.

Exceeded Our Expectations!
Dear Colleen & Al, We have had a great time at your vacation rental! We loved cooking in the lovely kitchen. We also liked having our friends come & visit us in the patio in the back. Loved walking to dining on 2nd St. several times. This location is perfect and everything met or exceeded our expectations! Thank you so much! Jerry, Judy & Becca - Seattle, WA

Dear Colleen & Al, Thank you for providing us with this lovely getaway! The location was perfect. We loved walking down to 2nd St and the beach whenever we pleased. Whale watching was a lot of fun too! We would recommend it. This place is so warm and welcoming. It is easy to feel like you are at home here. We would love to come back. Thanks again!

Al & Colleen, Thanks so much for your hospitality. We thoroughly enjoyed your eclectic, tasteful abode. It is very nicely centrally located for all the tourist attractions and visiting our friends in San Pedro. We daydreamed numerous times about moving to Long Beach.

Great apartment, great location!
Great apartment, great location!
Pied a Terre was the perfect home away from home for our family of three. Al and Colleen were there to greet us when we arrived. The apartment was exactly as pictured, tastefully decorated and provided all the comforts of home. Colleen and Al were wonderful and readily available even in the middle of the night when we misplaced our key. Street parking was readily available. We most enjoyed going for a early morning walk to 2nd St and grabbing coffee and pastries and walking back to the playground for our toddler to burn some energy before we started our day. I highly recommend!

Perfect Evening Retreat After A Long Day
Colleen & Al, Your lovely vacation rental could not have been more perfect for us to retreat to after 12-hour days out on our research cruise! It gave us the much needed break in the evenings. We even made time to get over to 2nd St. We will have to come back sometime and visit when we don't have to work. We really enjoyed everything about the rental!

What A True Vacation Is All About!
Dear Colleen & Al, Well, our 17 day stay in Long Beach is coming to an end tomorrow. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here while we have visited with my brother & his new wife! This extremely comfortable & very nicely decorated suite was so nice to come back to after a day of sightseeing & visiting. We felt very relaxed here - had great sleeps (that bed & those pillows are SO COMFY!!) & even some pleasant naps occasionally. That's just what a true vacation is all about! We have really enjoyed our many trips to the various beaches & piers around here. We too loved the park across the street & watching the happy children scampering about. Was a great "remember when" to our earlier days with 4 young children. We really enjoyed our visit with you one evening & sharing a bottle of wine and many good laughs with you both! We will definitely be back to Long Beach & would love to stay here again. We will certainly recommend your place to our friends & especially my folks as they'll likely come for a visit in the future too! Thanks for everything! Lorraine & Larry - Chilliwack, B.C. Canada P.S. We LOVED the nice sunny weather. A pleasant break from our winter rain.
