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!

                                                                    Kathleen S.

                                                                    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

                                                                    Graeme P.Tsawwassen British Columbia

                                                                    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!

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
