Sunset Beach house description

Surfside Colony is a guard-gated neighborhood of beach-side homes located between Seal Beach and Huntington Beach, California. Easily accessed by freeway and Pacific Coast Highway, it is close to shopping, restaurants, theaters, golf courses, and such major attractions as Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, the Queen Mary, the Aquarium of the Pacific, and deluxe shopping at South Coast Plaza.

No home in Surfside is more than 75 feet from the beach, and the sound of the waves and salt tang of the breeze give this water-side community a unique marine atmosphere. The community has been a seaside destination for Southern Californians since 1929, and no two houses are alike. Our broad, sandy private beach is great for strolling and shell collecting.

Recreational possibilities include beach combing, surfing, fishing, shell collecting, swimming, wind surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding and kite surfing, and golfing. All of Southern California's major attractions are close by.

                    Had a wonderfully relaxing stay in this fully equipped house. Very conveniently located, lots to do & see nearby. My favorite part was just walking up and down the beautiful private beach. House had everything to make our stay comfortable & owners are great. We grilled several times & loved the back patio & upper balcony. There is view in front bedroom as well as master is full oceanfront. The community is in a historic village (surfside) that is gated & lovely to walk or bike. Enjoyed reading about the community & had great books to read at house! We left you a few that we finished while there too! Hated to leave!!! We will probably rent next year if schedules allow. Thank you for opening your home, Mary Ellen & Bill!

                    Without a doubt Surfside Colony is an amazing private beach gem not to be missed. This home is charming and filled with love. We have spent the last month waking up to the sounds of the ocean on our private beach, surrounded by a fun community, enjoying the festive Labor day weekend and lots of great memories. We can not wait to come back and would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a respite from their daily grind. Thank you MaryEllen and Bill for sharing your family home with us. We are eternally grateful.

                    We chose this rental as a week away before my oldest son goes off to college. It was very comfortable and and clean. We enjoyed the location it is very close to Disneyland, Queen Mary and many other Southern California attractions. It was especially nice to wake up to the sound of the ocean. Mary Ellen is a joy to work with and our stay was all that we had hoped it would be..

                    We stayed here with a 1.5 year old and a 3 month old and it was a perfect place to have a beautiful view of the ocean from the living room/kitchen to the glassed in porch or two steps away on the sand. Sleepy family friendly beach with some serious July 4th parties! House has EVERYTHING you could need, down to booster seats and a fabulous jacuzzi, master bedroom has beautiful view and another deck overlooking ocean. Everything thoughtfully put together, from condiments in the fridge to nice towels, sheets, etc.

                    Everything was perfect in this home. We were pleasantly surprised that all the descriptions were accurate along with the previous reviews written by others. We had 5 adults and one child and were very comfortable in the home. The home was stocked with everything. The private beach was the best part, we had the whole beach to ourselves. The suggested eateries were spot on and we found a few on our own too. We look forward to returning to this property and dealing with MaryEllen was very easy. As I said, it was PERFECT.

                    My family just spent a long weekend at this wonderful house and we came away far exceeding our expectations. I wasn't quite sure what to expect with the weekend as I hadn't been to the Seal Beach area. Upon first arriving, as dusk was settling, I was awarded the most amazing sunset. This continued to be the trend each evening as the sun would set right in front of the house right over the beach. And right in front of you is the wonder of the Catalina islands. We just happened to luck into a wonderful, warm weekend. The beach was calm and serene and we felt like we had it to ourselves! Each day we would walk in each direction to explore more areas. We loved Seal Beach and all if its charm. There are some wonderful restaurants and bars to explore there. The house itself was so charmingly decorated - I felt immediately at home. The master bed and bath opens its doors to the gorgeous beach. I spent lots of time just taking pictures and looking out. Downstairs, there is a family room that allowed us all to cook big dinners, hang out together and open the doors to the beach. This is a great place to come with family members or kids as everyone can run and do as they please. The kitchen is beautifully and functionally decorated - it was a pleasure cooking in there. There were also plenty of bathrooms available - my nephew loved the steam and jacuzzi upstairs in the master bath! I would love to return to this property. The pictures don't even do it justice. And you can't find warmer, more accommodating hosts than the owners.

                    Patsy and I want to thank you for the opportunity to stay at your Surfside home, you and my wife have to be kindred spirits. No matter where we rent at the beach, every year I have to bring a truck load of beach decorations so she can feel like it's her home. But with your home there was no need for them since it was decorated so well. THANK YOU THANK YOU. As I stated before we always treat wherever we rent like itis our own home and with the pictures of you and your husband, and family we almost felt part of your family

                    Imaging arriving with our family after a long drive from the Phoenix area to find wet towels in drawers and sheets in the washer and dryer. A call to the owner did not help. We spent the first night doing laundry and cleaning the kitchen because all the dishes and utensils were not clean due to an obstruction in the dishwasher. Also, you can’t use the upstairs shower because it leaks through the ceiling. The place is nice, and has a great location, but it needs a better cleaning service and obviously gets heavy use. We thought it would be fair to get our cleaning deposit refunded, to no avail. And why so few reviews of this rental? I’d stay in surfside, but not at this unit.

                    Owner response: This appears to be a hoax--no guest named " Bobby" was registered at our lovely home during that time period
