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 loved staying at your beach cottage! It was our home away from home while visiting our son and daughter-in-law. It had everything we needed - - beach gear, a cozy living room, well-equipped kitchen and lots of info on the area. The location and neighborhood atmosphere was great. We enjoyed our conversations with you and we enjoyed Buddy-Dog's company, too. Thanks for your hospitality!!

We enjoyed your lovely home. The location between the bay and the ocean was so awesome! We spent a wonderful time visiting our daughter and your home was truly like a home away from home. We will DEFINITELY be returning in the spring, and hope your home will be available. Back to Indiana we go, with such wonderful memories.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay! Your warm welcome was very much appreciated from me and I can't wait to stay again. The beach cottage was peaceful and had all the amenities I needed for my business trip. It was also a wonderful place to relax on those free weekends... I hope to stay with you again!

Thank you so much for everything. Bob and I could not have found a more special place to spend our 40th Anniversary. EVERYTHING we could possibly need was here waiting for us. We stay in rentals often and this is the best equipped one we have ever stayed in. And we felt so welcome! Any tourist information, including maps of the surrounding areas are here waiting for you. We look forward to our next stay at the beach cottage; we'll be back soon! Thanks again for making us feel like family.

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.
