About Colleen or Al
Al was born in Honolulu and left for the mainland when he was a toddler. He grew up in Long Beach - attended Lakewood High and USC with a strong focus on water sports. Now, he plays bridge and tries to improve on his golfing. Colleen was born in Hong Kong and moved to NYC at age 5. She graduated from the H.S. of Fashion Industries and the Fashion Institute of Technology. Interior design is her forte. She isn't very athletic but will join Al for snow skiing when the conditions are perfect. They both do Argentine tango and ballroom dancing several times a week. Waldo, their 15 year old rescued 'schnoodle' watches over Colleen and keeps strangers at bay with his ferocious bark.
Colleen or Al purchased this Apartment in 1988
Why Colleen or Al chose Belmont Shore
Colleen fell in love with the enclosed Spanish courtyard and, although the house was a fixer-upper, she was successful in convincing Al to join her in tackling the remodeling projects. It's now a very comfortable and elegant home.
What makes this Apartment unique
The house is in a very walkable neighborhood and only 1 block from 2nd St where there are a variety of restaurants, shops and amenities. Its proximity to the major freeways makes it a perfect "home" base for work and recreation in Los Angeles and Orange County. Of course the mild weather with mostly sunny days is the best benefit of all!

Lovely Apartment in Belmont Shore
This is a beautifully decorated apartment with a lovely private patio in a quiet section of Belmont Shore. We spend a week here every year and this year we took a boat tour of the Long Beach harbor, ate dinner on the Queen Mary and had a romantic ride on a gondola around Naples Island. Parking is easy to find in this area despite the proximity to 2nd Street's shops and restaurants. I highly recommend.
The Good Life at Belmont Shore
We loved our stay. The apartment is elegant, posh and immaculate, decorated with a travel theme. There's even a comfy walled patio. The quiet location is perfect to enjoy the vibrant Belmont Shore neighbour and the beach. Rent a bike at the corner and pedal on the beach into downtown Long Beach...or beyond.
Charming with personal touches!
This is our third visit! So, obviously we are happy. Al and Colleen are wonderful hosts. The apartment is very comfortable, clean, and attractive. It is walking distance to many restaurants and shops. Also, it is just blocks from the beach.
Great place to stay in Long Beach
In town for a job interview. I flew into long beach airport from oakland and rented a car. The whole process was super easy compared to lax, Colleens place is only 15mins away from the airport.
The place is so cozy and warm, it is a great place to stay. The location is a short walk to 2nd street which is the place to be in Long beach!
I will definitely be back!
The aparment was a beautiful place to stay. The apartment is full of details that make the place really cozy. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. We would surely come back.

For the discerning visitor, stay and play in Belmont Shore, a friendly and exciting beach community of Long Beach. Other Activities: day spas, yoga, bridge, ballroom dancing
