Long Beach condo description

Steps Away is located at Beachside Retreat, a quaint beach front property located in Long Beach, CA.

This is a perfect location for a vacation stay, business trip or a conference or sporting event at the Long Beach Convention Center. Steps Away is a fully furnished and thoughtfully detailed unit with your comfort and convenience in mind. Come see why our guests come back to stay with us --you will too!

We are on the beach, no streets to cross, no walking a block or two. Just out the door and onto the sand.

Our fully furnished two bedroom/one bath unit with balcony and ocean view is perfect for just 1 person yet can accommodate up to 5 people comfortably. Ideal for a family vacation or local business trip.

Master bedroom with California king bed, soft linens, extra pillows, television...and a chocolate at your bedside!

Second bedroom with full size bed with memory foam mattress and ocean view.

Large living room includes a full size futon sofa for additional sleeping options.

All of our beds are made with clean quality linens and a good night sleep in mind.

Walk out the door and you step onto the sand. Table, chairs and BBQ available for your meals on the beach or to take your afternoon tea.

Long Beach is a south facing beach with sun all day. Enjoy the energizing sunrise to the east and a calming sunset to the west. This is a unique location.
