Seal Beach apartment description

SPRING RATE SPECIAL!! Email for details. Please leave your phone number and/or email address in your inquiry!! This is a spaciously modest 3 bedroom, 2 bath, upper unit with private balcony in a quiet, residential beach area just minutes from the beach and Main Street. New carpet throughout. Both bathrooms have recently been remodeled with exquisite cherry cabinets, quartz countertop in the master bath and porcelain tile throughout. The living room and master bedroom have new flat screen TVs, and the living room also has a Wii with many games to play and Netflix on demand. Just added...brand new Stearns & Foster Lux Estate queen bed in the master bedroom!!

Seal Beach is one of the few remaining California beach towns that still retains it's original, small town character, yet offers all the luxuries of a big city. Main Street and the famous Seal Beach Pier are just a short stroll down a lovely green belt, where you will find wonderul restaurants and unique shops.

This duplex is situated in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood, and it is fully equipped for your complete comfort, with microwave, stove and refrigerator, and lots of amenities.

Seal Beach is located just 22 miles south of Los Angeles, at the northern end of Orange County. Visitors seeking the California dream of beach, sun and ocean need look no further. Take sunset walks on the pier, watch world class surfing in the quiet retreat of undiscovered Seal Beach. Walk to Main Street and appreciate the still small-town atmosphere of eclectic boutiques, coffee shops, and restaurants. One street over is a convenient bike/surfboard/ skateboard rental.

In early April, the roar of Grand Prix race cars echoes through the city streets of Long Beach (just a mile north) during the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. Weekends host a Farmers Market in the nearby Alamito’s Bay Marina…and don’t miss the nearby Aquarium of the Pacific at Shoreline Village, at the foot of Pine Street in Long Beach. This is a harbor side shopping center with specialty shops, restaurants, a restored Luff carousel, and occasional live boardwalk entertainment.

It is twenty minutes to Newport Beach, and Balboa Island night life, 30 minutes to Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm, and a 2 hour ferry to Santa Catalina Island (not to be missed!). Activities include fishing, sea kayaking, surfing, hiking, sailing, windsurfing, jet-skiing. Try whale watching or ride the Ferris wheel and the bumper cars at the Balboa Fun Zone…or take the Balboa Ferry to Balboa Island for just 60 cents!

Whether you're seeking rest and relaxation, a good jumping-off point for an action-packed vacation, or something in between, Seal Beach brings it all together.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: I grew up in nearby Westminster, and I spent my childhood at the beach in Seal Beach and Bolsa Chica beach. When I was old enough to ride my bike to the beach, my friends and I would go to Seal Beach almost every day during the summer. When I had my children, I used to take them to the park at the base of the pier almost every day, then we would go to one of the local restaurants for grilled cheese sandwiches or quesadillas. In the evenings, we would stroll to the end of the pier to tire the kids out, then stop for coffee and cookies on the way back. Seal Beach holds such wonderful memories for me, that in 2006, when I had the chance to move back, I jumped on it. I've never regretted that decision, and you'll find the charm of this city is infectious.

                      Why the Owner Chose Seal Beach:
                      I love the fact that you can walk or bike to just about anything in Seal Beach. You can grocery shop, go to the beach, go to a nice restaurant, go to a movie, shop for clothes, bank, get coffee, all without getting into your car. Also, because of it's location, you can be in the desert, the mountains, or anywhere in between in 2-3 hours. All major attractions are easily accessible.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      My family and I spend a lot of time on the balcony/deck. The view is wonderful, and the atmosphere is so peaceful. (You'll see that word, peaceful, pop-up a lot in describing Seal Beach!) Because the weather is usually pretty mild, you can sit outside a lot of the year. It's my favorite thing about the house!!
