Downtown Huntington Beach has grown and evolved into the premier Orange County

vacation destination and has something for everyone – beautiful beaches, sports,

excellent variety of restaurants, shopping, live music, and art shows to name a few. 

Huntington Beach is also the closest beach town to Disneyland. The Jade Beach Retreat

provides everything you need to enjoy your time here.  We have been told by many of

our guests that they had just as much fun inside the property as they did when they left!


The Jade Beach Retreat is a labor of love.  What started out as our family home has

morphed into a first class vacation retreat for you, your family and friends to use and

enjoy.  We first fell in love with this house is 2000 when we moved our family from the

East Coast to southern California.  We planted our beloved jade hedge in the front of

the house and the large jade bush near the front door; the plants have grown, spread

and blossomed over the years.   We named our home the Jade Beach Retreat because

jade has such lovely associations – the joy of friendship, positive energy,

prosperity, family harmony, health, creativity, longevity and luck. When our boys grew

up and moved away, we began to rent out the house. If we’re in town, we reside in the

totally separate in-law suite in the front of the house that allows us both to maintain our

privacy. We take a great deal of pride in our home and constantly strive to make this

your best vacation home experience.


We have happily enjoyed a ten-year relationship with our property managers, Mike and

Chanti, at SoCalHotProperties.They are delightful, knowledgeable and will work with

you to book your special vacation at our property.

Our photo array, video and Digital Welcome Book provide a comprehensive overview of

the property.  We are happy to show you every inch of the house and all the many

amenities and extras we provide.  Also check our The Jade Beach Retreat Facebook

page. It will be filled with lots of interesting information about local events and

happenings, features of the house and new additions, vacation health and wellness tips,

retreat options and more.

About Mike and Chanti Hermanns


I am Mike Hermanns born and raised in Huntington and we have been on VRBO since 2002 and we manage quite a few furnished rentals. I went to Edison High School, college in San Luis Obispo, and eventually came back to Orange county. I can not believe what a vacation destination my sleepy little town has turned into. I was one of the first furnished rentals in the downtown Huntington Beach 15 years ago. I look forward to sharing all that this town has to offer with you. My wife Chanti and I manage and own quite few furnished homes in the area and are the owners of So Cal Hot Properties L.L.C., a property management company specializing in furnished rentals that I founded in 2002. You will find hundreds of wonderful reviews that we have worked very hard to get over the last 15 years so you can be assured that you are in good hands when you book with us. Please call, text or email us with any questions.

Best Regards,

Mike Hermanns

Guestbook comments from the manager


I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the rest of your staff for making our vacation in your beautiful home at 7 th street one of the best we have had in your fine country. ?This is our third visit to USA and by far the best. ?The house at Geneva was so big bearing in mind that 8 of us were staying there. ?We could not believe the space we had and the hot tub in the garden is the perfect way to end the day after site sighting and should you wish to spend time catching rays the roof terrace is perfect for this. ?We have told all our family and friends to visit your site if that consider staying in Huntington Beach. Once again, a big thank you from the Holland family for making our trip to Huntington Beach a very memorable one.

The house was walking distance to everything!

  • 4 of 5

The house was huge and had more features and amenities than we could have ever imagined. We didn't lack for anything. The owners even surprised us with goodies upon arrival.

The location was amazing! We walked to everything (shopping, restaurants, beach, pier, etc.). We only used our car to drive to a nearby Wal-Mart for groceries and Target to purchase a matching bathing suit piece accidentally left at home. Both of these stores were a short distance away which was convenient and cost- saving.

Our only one negative comment is on the futon beds in the 3rd bedroom. We used them for adults with back issues and they weren't comfortable. I'm sure they are fine for kids, teenagers or young adults. All the other beds and bedrooms were fantastic.

The Management team was amazing to work with. Their instructions prior to arrival were very detailed and they were always available to answer questions before, during and after our stay. I would suggest reading the manuals they have available in the house. They have so many written details about the house and suggestions of what to do in the house and in the local area.

I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a huge house to rent within walking distance to everything Huntington Beach has to offer.

We have amazing memories from our stay here.

The location and space are amazing

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we were greeted with a welcome basket and a welcome guide offering great suggestions of where to eat and things to do. We also used the digital guide that was provided which was helpful. The location is so good that I think we used our car once to go shopping, everything was a very short walk away. Mike and Chanti were great to work with as well. We are already planning our next trip back to this home in HB.

Great location, Fun house

  • 5 of 5

We had a family group of seven, from an 11-year old great-granddaughter to an 85-year old great-grandmother. We are an active crew. This house was perfect for our summer vacation. Easy walk to just about everything we wanted to do: beach time, downtown, farmer's market, shopping, more beach time...... Many upgrades and niceties to the house. We will stay here again when we want a Southern California stay!

Close to beach/activities

  • 5 of 5

We were so surprised by how big the house really was and how close to everything it happened to be! We parked our cars when we arrived and hardly used them at all. Easy walk to beach, stores and restaurants. I was worried it would be loud at night with the windows open with all the stores and restaurants so close but it was great! Stayed here with our little and big kids and there was room for everyone and they were all happy! Had a wonderful time and would stay here again!

Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

Class act owners and management company. We arrived one day early, (don't ask me how ) We were thinking Friday but the date was for the 18th which was Saturday. Our fault!! When we arrived and told the owner what had happened she was awesome and accommodated us instantly. She had a bottle of wine and chocolates waiting for our arrival. This house couldn't have been more perfect in location and cleanliness. It was two blocks from downtown and two blocks to the beach. Perfect distance from the hubbub of both. The teens played life size checkers on the rooftop and laid out in privacy . They also had their own bedroom, sleeping everyone in their own bed in bed-droom #3 with 5 beds wow, perfect for the teens . This house had it all beach towels, bikes, boogy boards , hot tub, 3 full bathrooms, it was comfortable for us all. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone !! Walmart was a short 2 miles away perfect if we needed anything. We absolutely loved it just feel bad for the mistake with the date. Lucky for us it was available. The owners were delightful and the So Cal hot properties group was very easy to work with . Whoever stays here will love it. Perfect for families!!!:)
