About Elena Osti

Our first sunset when we moved back to Seal Beach.

Elena Osti purchased this bungalow in 2001

Why Elena Osti chose Old Towne

We have always enjoyed Seal Beach and have lived here for many years. After returning from Hawaii, we knew we wanted to live by the water. As luck would have it, our home is one house away from the Pacific Ocean, where we experience cool breezes, and ocean walks. The pleasure of coming home after a hard day’s work is well worth the ride!

The Osti's

What makes this bungalow unique

Our home is 74 years old and has been completely remodeled with care to keep the charm of the 1940's. Modern with old vintage character.

VRBO Bear stayed here

Aug 1, 2016

August 2016 - The VRBO Bear and his family had a wonderful time staying in the Pineapple Cottage! The cottage is located in the heart of the lovely Seal Beach community, which is a quieter town than Long Beach to the north and Huntington Beach to the south. Pineapple Cottage is in a great location: a short 5-10 min walk to downtown Seal Beach, a short 15-20 minute drive to Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm, a 10 min drive to Huntington Beach. The cottage is well equipped all around. The kitchen is stocked with all necessary appliances, utensils, seasonings, coffee grinder/maker, & espresso maker), the bedrooms have plenty of linens, blankets & pillows to choose from, and the living spaces have several sitting areas to relax, read, and watch tv. We really enjoyed the cool mornings and evenings in the front porch and rooftop deck! Both are great places to start the day and/or unwind the day! The cottage is amazing, but I need/want to express how wonderful the owners Kye and Elena are welcoming you to their vacation rental. From our initial correspondence, during pre-stay questions, through the check-in process, and post-stay follow-up, Kye & Elena have been amazing. They really cherish their Pineapple Cottage and truly enjoy sharing it with their guests!

summer beach stay

  • 5 of 5

The pineapple cottage was the perfect place for our family of 4. We have two boys and one slept on the daybed while the other slept on the couch. Everything was provided that we needed! It was easy to make our own meals and there was a grill on the deck too. The boys had a game to see how many pineapples they could find in the cottage. It was decorated so well! The private rooftop deck at night was awesome as we could put the boys to bed and relax above for a bit. The beach was steps away and the boys would run to the beach first thing every morning. It was a relaxing trip!

Great location.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed are stay at the pineapple cottage. The location was perfect. We were in a quiet neighborhood but very close to everything we needed. The beach was a half a block away. Restaurants and shops were a short walk away as well. The accommodatios met all our needs. We loved sitting on the deck enjoying the sunshine and ocean breeze.

A little slice of Heaven...

  • 5 of 5

I really needed my little Vacay. I had been under a lot of stressful things lately and I am so glad to have found the Pineapple Cottage. It was so adorable , perfect place to relax and enjoy Seal Beaches town. I felt right at home there and one of my favorite things to do was go to the roof top deck with my coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. Thank you Elena and Kye for sharing your beautiful home, I can't wait to go back. I just loved it ... Jeanne Ann Johnson, Ontario CA

Pretty As The Pictures

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at the Pineapple Cottage and enjoyed every minute. A perfect property for a couple or small family. Steps to the beach, walking distance to Main Street Seal Beach and easy access to all of Orange County. The upstairs deck was perfect for morning coffee, afternoon reading and evening dining. The owners were welcoming and very helpful. The property is immaculate and very comfortable. Well stocked with everything you need for your stay including beach toys and equipment.We'll be back!

Car: not necessary

We are located one house behind the Boardwalk / Pacific Ocean (or) about 7 homes down Seal Way or Ocean Ave- a quick walk to the beach. We do not have a view, but you are just steps away.

Seal Beach is situated perfectly between Los Angles & Orange County for day adventures up and down the coast or head to the mountains. Many vacationers know Seal Beach as the place to arrive - unload the car and just walk everywhere within minutes from our 4 Beach Cottages.

* Disney Land? Many folks Uber / Lyft to save time from parking. Think of the time you will save from not having to park - taking the tram and standing in the waiting lines. You will gain one hour in time with Uber / Lyft to the park& another hour when you leave. You have been in lines all day. Now its time to go home and relax.

We are very close to the LA parks and museums as well. Spend a day in LA just checking out the sights - getting lost in a cool way while LA shopping- dining or just exploring the areas.

*San Diego on your list? We are about 1 1/2-hour drive. Well worth the drive.

*Catalina Island is just 25 miles off Seal Beach - go for the day out of New Port or Long Beach. (worth doing)

* Sports - Dodges - Angles - Lakers & Anaheim Ducks are all close sporting events from Seal Beach.

* Concerts - plays? We have many venues close to Seal Beach. How cool to see a concert while on vacation? Try- Segerstrom Concert Hall - Anaheim Concert Hall - Long Beach Entertainment Center - Long Beach State University (Carpenter Performing Arts)

* Golf - Many close locations to Seal Beach

All 4 Cottages are located just steps to the Pacific Ocean - take some time to just relax and put your toes in the water and then take a nap on the beach. Wake up & then walk to Main Street to eat. Come relax and make some memories. Your vacation is your journey to relaxing times at the beach.

- The Pineapple Cottage (one Bed)

- The Pineapple Bungalow (2Bed)

- The Starfish Cottage (one Bed)

- The Starfish Bungalow (2 bed)

Don’t forget about the Seal Beach 10 & 5k in April/May. The Kite festival (check out the kite store on Main Street) and Free music in the park during the summer months. We look forward to seeing you soon along the Pacific Coast.
