Property description

Our 3 story, 3,000 square ft. downtown Huntington Beach home is the definition of luxury in a beach house. While we have the amazing weather and beautiful local of Southern California outside, we have styled the inside of our home after a Tuscan villa. This cozy and rustic touch paired with top of the line modern amenities, we believe, makes our home the perfect vacation getaway. We have seen that most vacation rentals are simply year round rentals that lack the “Home Away from Home” feeling. You will not find anything lacking in ours. We live here part of the year and have not only made it luxurious, but cozy as well. Here you will have everything you will need to enjoy your stay in the heart of Huntington Beach.

We offer some personal advise on choosing a location that best suit your needs. If you like lively and noisy, rent a place closer to Main Street, but don’t plan on getting too much sleep or relaxation. You will be amongst other vacation rentals and people that are here in Huntington Beach to “Party”. They will be on their patios and balconies till all hours of the night. So, if you are wanting to open up your windows and sliding glass doors to experience the ocean breeze and hear the waves, you will want to rent a place on a street higher than 10th street(further away from Main Street). At our home, you will get the peace quiet and will still be only a 5 min. walk to the beach (4 blocks away) or Main St. and the Pier is a comfortable 10 min. walk (12 blocks away) or a short bike ride on our one of 4 bikes for your personal use.

Our home is a large 3 bedrooms with a large loft, and 3.25 baths. The Master has a King size bed with a fireplace, a 40” HD television and a bathroom that rivals a 5 star hotel with a jetted tub and a separate enclosed shower. Bedroom #1 has a Queen size bed while Bedroom #2 has a Double bed. Both share a bathroom with a tub and shower. The Loft on the 3rd story will sleep 3 on a Queen size bed and a lay down futon. It also has it’s own 40” HD television, full bathroom and a patio where you can enjoy the sun with a view of Catalina Island. Like at home, all our rooms have plenty of space to store your clothes. In the media room, there is a 65” HD television and a brand new sectional couch that opens up to another Queen size bed.

Downstairs there is a living room with a fireplace and comfortable couches. On the 2nd story, we boast a media room comfortable sectional sofa, a 65” HD television and surround sound. You will have access to over 600 channel with Directv including HBO, Showtime, and all other Movie channels as well as a Playstation 3 to watch blu-rays or play a game or two. Next to the media room, we have a tech center for you. There you will find a 27” IMac running Mavericks. You can surf the web, send emails, or print out directions with our Fiberoptic Wifi (which you can access on your electronic devices). Our home page is Huntington Beach’s Event page, letting you know what is going on in our hometown while you are here. We have also, in the favorites, saved the websites of some of our favorite restaurants in the area.

At Villa al Mare, you will have a gourmet kitchen that will give you everything that you might want. You will find a 50” HD television, a 4 top breakfast table and a breakfast bar with two bar stools for a place to causally eat. If you would like more formal meals, we have a dining room table that will comfortably seat 12 people. Two ovens, a six burner stove top, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator as well as a Margarita Blender. If you are relaxing on one of the patios with a Margartia but why not cook like we all do in Huntington Beach. On the Grill! You are welcome to use our Cal Flame 4 burner gas grill or our charcoal Weber Grill.

In HB, part of our lifestyle is to enjoy the outdoors! We have for you a Boogie board with 2 sets of fins, Surf board, 4 beach chairs & cooler, 4 Bicycles, a Basket ball, and Tennis Rackets & balls, (courts and a soccer field are 2 blocks up the street). Down next to the beach is a path for jogging. If you can’t make it to the beach for a run, we also have a treadmill with another 40” HD television in the garage. There is even a high chair, stroller Pac N Play or child’s sleeping bag for your little ones, if needed.

What’s close. Conveniently located within a 1 block or 2 blocks away are 2 small markets for small items, a great Mexican place as well as a donuts shop and Laundry Mat. The main grocery store is about 1 mile away. If you’re looking for get out an enjoy California, the beach is just 4 short blocks away or head to Main Street to shop, eat, or visit the Pier. It’s a comfortable walk or short bike ride on the boardwalk. Venture out of Huntington beach, about a 30 minutes drive to Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farms, 1 hour to Universal Studios, Hollywood, Venice Beach & Beverly Hills, 90 minutes to Sea World, 15 minutes to the South Coast Plaza & Fashion Island Designer Shopping Center.

* P.S. Out of respect of our neighbors, we cater to families and couples looking to rent an amazing beach house. If you’re looking for a place to rent with 8 of your friends to party, this isn’t the place. My neighbors won’t tolerate it.
