Small but comfy, walking distance to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a little cottage, but has everything you might need. The kids went to the beach twice a day because it's within walking distance. There is covered parking in the garage, and a patio shared with the front unit. Seal Beach is very quiet, even though it was Spring Break time for a lot of areas there were hardly any people. Main street is within walking distance and has lots of shops and restaurants....Fun!

This is a beautifully maintained cottage and you can tell its managed by people who truly care!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for our daughter's Spring Break and we chose this location for its proximity to our family and friends who live in Irvine, San Diego and Santa Monica. We loved it! It's so well-kept and close to the beach, pier and many wonderful restaurants off of Main Street. We loved how clean it was; Kye and Elena are very hospitable and thorough in managing their property. We plan on going back and might try out the larger cottage or possibly even the closer one off of Ocean. It was a fabulous, relaxing vacation...just what we needed!
