About Elena Osti

Our first sunset when we moved back to Seal Beach.

Elena Osti purchased this bungalow in 2001

Why Elena Osti chose Seal Beach

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.

Reviews

Stay in this beautiful cottage close to beaches and Disneyland.

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!

Owner's Response: Jacy: Thanks for taking a moment to provide a review. This was very kind of you. We loved the deck when we lived in the house for daytime naps and where the little ones are safe inside. Have a wonderful summer and on your next vacation adventure please think of us. Cheers Elena

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!

This is our eighth year vacationing in Seal Beach, our second year at the Pineapple Cottage. We're beginning to think of it as our own special paradise. We love it here so much! We rent the front and back cottage, plenty of room for our children and grandchildren. We come together from three states, back to where we originate from and a state we will always call "home". The Pineapple Cottage is so very charming, beautifully decorated with lovely antiques, classic comfortable furniture, eclectic accessories. Most evenings were spent around the dining room table playing games, listening to music and just enjoying each other. Kye and Elena feel like old friends. Please, if you are ever in Tucson area give us a call. We'd love to spend an evening with you. Thank you for another wonderful summer and we hope to see you next year!

The perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this cute well equipped cottage to celebrate our 30th Anniversary. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we could possibly need and the added perk of the rooftop patio served at not only the best place for morning coffee and an evening glass of wine but as a getaway for my husband when our band of children and grandchildren all came to visit. We highly recommend staying here and look forward to renting again next time we visit Seal Beach. The owners were very helpful and we never had a problem with parking. Oh did I mention how easy it was to get to and from the beach and main street? Excellent in every way. Thanks so much for your warm hospitality. Maxine & Steve
