Long Beach house description

SEPTEMBER 1 is our next availability. Fall is lovely at the beach! I hope you'll come enjoy the solitude here on the bay.....we are receiving inquiries daily for this time, so be sure to reserve your stay NOW!


Located conveniently between Los Angeles and Orange County, this ALAMITOS BAY beach cottage is ON THE PENINSULA. You'll find you've arrived in a quiet little beach town with all the amenities of a large metropolitan city.

Your getaway is between the Bay and the Ocean - enjoy the sunrise on the Bay (just about 100 feet away), and the sunset on the Beach (maybe 200 feet away). But be sure to relax and take a breath! You're on vacation. If you've come for work in the City, at the University, or at the Port, we'll do our best to make you feel like you've just found your new 'home office' in this secluded spot.

Make your way through the gate and meander up the stairs to find your own spacious deck where you can BBQ, dine alfresco, or just lounge the day away. This cozy 1 bedroom/1 bath has everything you could want in your very own home away from home. The luxurious linens won't be all you'll be happy about. Let us make sure it's just what you'll need to make your stay a comfortable one.

Our goal is to make sure you're surrounded by things that say, 'welcome, won't you come and stay for a while?' When you're ready to stroll out to the bay, or the beach, your beach chair and towel will be waiting. Our impeccable attention to detail will let you know, we want to make your retreat a tranquil one. Backgammon, chess anyone? Watch a movie? Need a book? No need to run in to town. Unless you want to. Whatever you choose to do with your time, you'll be sure to want to return time and time again.

WE'LL TAKE YOUR BOOKING VIA PHONE - WITH A CC# YOU CAN HAVE YOUR VACATION BOOKED IN A MOMENT...

                      On Sunday morning, make your way to the Farmers Market where you'll find everything you need for alfresco dining on the deck. Or if you like, go to Pine Avenue in Downtown Long Beach for some upscale dining. If casual is your choice, take a walk to 2nd Street to find Nick's on 2, Yen Sushi, George's Greek, Domenico's for legendary pizza or freshly roasted coffee at Polly's. There is Kayaking, Paddle Boarding Biking and walking along the bay or the ocean bike path connecting Belmont Shore to Downtown Long Beach. Any other day, you can visit Aquarium of the Pacific, Long Beach Pike, Queen Mary, Long Beach Museum of Art, Museum of Latin Art, or Shoreline Village. This time of year, there is the Boat Parade in Alamitos Bay, and the Annual Christmas Parade on 2nd Street, to name a few. Take a little longer drive and visit Disneyland, Universal Studios, and Knotts Berry Farm. LAX and John Wayne International Airports are close by - Long Beach Airport even closer.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1989

                      About the owner: Thanks for considering our beach cottage on Alamitos Bay in Long Beach, California. We like a little water and a little sand between our toes. Or a little stroll on the wooden boardwalk at sunset. This is just the place for both! Alamitos Bay has long been a tranquil refuge - with a sense of community that you won't find in other towns. Come and see for yourself - in the most unlikely place - you'll find Harmony.

                      Why the Owner Chose Long Beach:
                      Long Beach is not only its own City, but it's close to both Orange County and Los Angeles County attractions, sites, and destinations. Being right in the middle of things - that's why we're here! We hope you'll want to be here too.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Situated between the bay and the beach, this 1940's shingled beach cottage for two is tucked away from the every day. Have coffee on the deck, or meander out to the bay and take in a magnificent sunrise while planning the rest of your day. In the evening, grab your running shoes, or a glass of spirits and head out to the boardwalk to watch the sun set over the ocean and the Palos Verdes Peninsula. For dinner, visit Belmont Shore and 2nd Street - just a short stroll away - or stay home and cook in a fully appointed kitchen - or BBQ if you like, instead. Set up your computer and work, or set up your sewing machine and quilt. Or just come and 'set' a while...whatever you choose, you'll choose to return again and again.
