One-bedroom, one-bath upstairs cottage. Private and quiet - no one else occupies the property when guests are present. The living quarters are set on the back of the property, with a large fenced yard in front. There is a deck area on the upstairs level and a bricked BBQ/picnic area in the yard below.
We are located on a narrow arm of Alamitos Bay. The view of the bay is somewhat obscured by the foliage of a venerable avocado tree, as well as other trees on the property. (Hence our name.)
The interior has considerable character and charm. The color scheme blends quiet earth-tones with bright folk-art touches. There is a queen-size bed in the bedroom and a full-size sleeper sofa in living room. Electricity is provided by solar panels.
Mothers Beach, a quiet water swimming area and park, is about two blocks away. Belmont Shore restaurants, shops and night life are about 5 blocks distant. Another quiet water swimming and sunbathing area is also about 5 blocks away - on the way to the ocean beach at about 8 blocks. (Ocean waves are generally very small in Long Beach, due to a breakwater.)
Parking is on the street, with one uncovered space in the alley for a compact vehicle.
